End of May, 1876 -- Situation & Medical

May saw both a substantial battle (see here) in the Tyger; and a small skirmish on the Cango as well as a few mishaps here and there.
 
Alex is in Derf; David, in Dinga; Rob, in Ta'ish; and Jeff, in Likaz


Above you see the map and each of you needs to decide where to go next.  Remember that you can:
  • go to any adjacent province (crossing water is okay, but mountains block movement)
  • or move through one or two hexes of a province to reach yet another province (although you will take penalties and might be stopped in the first province)
  • or go "On the River" for the month (this allows you to visit your capitol and transfer troops, and you get to end the month in any province touching your river's blue waters).
So where do you want to go?  Remember the higher the "Rebellion Index" is, the more volatile the province.
 
=================

Following are the current Rebellion Index for the various districts:
  • Alex's Cango River districts are in red
  • Rob's Tyger River districts are in green
  • Murdock's Vile River districts are in purple
  • Jeff's Wazu River districts are in blue
The following "codes" will be in effect -- and the die roll in parentheses indicate how many points the Rebellion Index will rise each month if not visited:
  • Home Districts are marked with * (d6-4)
  • Mission Districts are marked # (d6-2)
  • Trading Post Districts have a $ (d8-4)
  • Normal Districts are unmarked (d6-3)
  • "Beja" Districts are marked -- (B)
