Compulsory rule modifications

Deployment and first move. Both sides deploy as specified in the rulebook. Defender takes the first bound.

Distributed ME (but not deployment) for baggage. One to two non-allied baggage contributes its ME to a command, and to the army breakpoint. Allied baggage operates exactly as in the rulebook. Mobile non-allied baggage may be moved with the CinCís PiPs.

Overhead shooting. To be a valid target for overhead shooting, an enemy element must not be less than a base width beyond any part of an intervening friendly element.

Flank support requires the elements to be grouped. This is the way it is usually played anyway.

Optional rule modifications
