All,

I've uploaded some clarifications and errata in the Files section that you can take a look at. I've included them inline here as well:

Map Error

There should be a fort called “Vesontio” in the Sequani area. It provides 1 supply point as per 6.6.

Older versions of this document called it “Bibracte” but I decided to change it to be more historically (and geographically) accurate.

The Sequani card should also have a picture of a fort with the word “Vesontio” on it.

5.2.1 (E) – Before the paragraph starting with “Roman Legion Force March” add the following:

“Gallic and German units may not enter the Roman off-map area.”

6.2.2 – After “All returning legions are considered a single group, and are considered the attackers.” add the following:

“Gallic and German units eliminated in battle return home as per 6.2.1 and 6.2.5, respectively, at the end of the battle.”

6.2.5 – Change the first two sentences to:

“German units that were eliminated return to Germania at strength 1. German units (only) may remain with the Ariovistus unit outside of Germania up to the supply limit of the area. All other German units return home at their current strength.”

7.4– After “Minor leaders may never be controlled by the Roman player.” add the following:

“Minor leaders are eliminated if their designated home area switches sides because of a political action, or reverts to neutral status because of a revolt.”

7.4– The sentence “Although minor leaders have been given names for historical flavor, they are not permanently eliminated from the game if eliminated in battle.” Remove the words “in battle”.

8.0 – Add the following to “The Roman Player Scores”:

“A maximum of 3 victory points can be scored for killing German non-leader units.”

Add optional rule 9.75, Germanic Mobilization:

Eliminated German units return at full strength instead of strength 1.

[Update: added map error]

I have a question on Rule 5.2. It states "...announces which action they are taking...". Does this mean they have to say what type of action they are taking (such as political action or movement OPs) or does the player need to specific the exact action (such as, I will move Unit X to Area Y)? I've interpreted as the former.

You've interpreted correctly. I suppose it should say, "which type of action they are taking...". If nothing else, the example of play makes it clear.

Actually, scrap that. It's entirely clear in the rulebook in 5.2: "There are 5 possible actions...".

Can/will Worthington games make up a 'patch' that players can print and stick on the map with the Bibracte fortress on it.

It's incorporated in the Vassal module, also.
