I kind of like inverting a bit the attrition seasons, for a change of pace. The above implies that the weather really fluctuates hard between hot/cold.


When you use the NWPs to reduce attrition, do you acctually have to roll the numbers you have or is it auto succeed? I have never seen any attrition rolls in previous games.

Your province + fortification levels provide a garrison space for armies. If they are not moving no attrition check is needed.

Exceeding the garrison capacity, marching, or sieging/occupying would result in a check.

Based on the ruling for blocking settlers, to apply NWPs in order to reduce attrition requires a 'declare war' action

Correct, I have rolled them in the background during war actions.

Dwarven and Halfling Wizards

I believe they should lose their bonus to saves (actually now that I say that, I am not sure BR Halflings had the bonus to saves anyway) from CON. They were supposed to represent their resistance to all things magic, because they couldn't use magic.

According to the BR Rulebook, halflings have the bonus, but only elves, half-elves and blooded humans can be wizards.. (and to be complete, only humans can be magicians according to those rules)

..so having both seems a little extreme when considering saving throws.
