Each player has four different types of Districts among his nine Districts in terms of "content":
- one Home District containing a port and a fort
- one Missionary District containing a a mission
- two Trader Districts each containing a trading post
- five Normal Districts only containing natives
- Home Districts will roll 1d6 and subtract four
- Missionary Districts will roll 1d6 and subtract two
- Trader Districts will roll 1d8 and subtract four
- Normal Districts will roll 1d6 and subtract three
Thus it should be obvious that the Missionary and Trader Districts have the potential to be more volatile than Normal Districts, potentially increasing by as much as 4 points; while Home Districts will only go up if a 5 or 6 is rolled and thus are much more stable.
By the way, while I said that the British garrisons had been deleted from the Home Districts (and replaced with Pasha Omar Mustapha's Egyptian troops), there will remain a "Headquarters Squad" plus any Reinforcements that accumulate. While the player's Captain or Senior Lt. may be left in charge of this HQ, the "extra" Lt. (until he eventually commands a Cavalry unit) should be there in addition to the command's doctor and commissary.
When a "Field Force" exits a District without losing a battle, that District's Rebellion Index will return to 2 . . . the same value at which all Districts will start in January, 1876 when the Campaign begins.
I should note how the "Rebellion Index" works. When a player's "Field Force" enters a District, I will roll 1d20. If the number rolled is lower than the Rebellion Index, there will be fighting . . . with the difference between the Rebellion Index and the d20 roll being the number of units that the Field Force will be facing. Thus a high Rebellion Index can be quite dangerous.
