New default rule for pAradoxical situations

Postby Pedros » 21 Apr 2012, 16:29

A new default rule, covering cases where a paradox arises because two sets of orders result in two different results depending upon which one is adjudicated first, is now in force in all Forum Games where no rule has been specified either by the variant or by the GM. It will be found at viewtopic.php?f=34&t=25319&p=455485#p455485, and it reads:-

If a paradox occurs as a result of one or more convoys, Army/Fleet moves, or any similar event, and the cases in the regular rules are similar, then those rules will apply if at all possible.

In any different instance, or if those rules do not provide a solution to the immediate paradox, then all units involved in the paradox will Hold (except that a unit ordered to support a unit involved in the paradox will continue with its support order.

This thread is provided for any discussion which follows from this new rule (before diving in, please read the relevant section of the regular rules on p17 at ... lebook.pdf
