    Quick Poll because I move tonight.

    Do we follow Mordhiems Plan ?

    Send units straight North together?


    Send them North, but don't wait for Dip?

    I voted for go North together (modified Mordhiem's plan). To me that means the legion moves 1W then straight N. The dip and chariot could zigzag to cover more ground and (generally) stay with the legion.

    I agree with everyone else who has voted so far it seems. The sooner we come across the AI city, the fewer troops they will have and the more likely we will be to capture the city. I am tempted to have the dip stick with the legion though, because if we send it with the chariot and they get surprised on flat terrain then it could be very costly indeed. :(

    I voted to move north without waiting
    There not going to get slaughtered just because theres no dip.
    Move them 1 space north away from dip (zig-zag) until the dip catches up.
    That way we can see immediately if the Vkings are approaching our settlement, and make preparations

    I voted go north without waiting for the dip. The dip will catch up with the Legion anyway, and the Chariot can zig-zag around to cover more ground and essentially not get ahead of the Legion. With any luck, the dip will catch up before they find anybody anyway, and if not, they can just hang out and keep the Viks hemmed in until he gets there.

    If the dip is going to take longer then we may as well start exploring and let the diplomat catch up with the legion or the chariot.
