Reducing Frontage

Postby Haroldo Hic » Sat Sep 30, 2017 11:52 am

I'd like to thank the Grand Company for the Triumph! System. I played the system once with Maerk and it was great fun.
I have a question and request concerning reducing frontage:
In a certain legacy system , it was conventionally agreed upon to allow frontage reduction; also if passing near bad going or other troops - even if these (the terrain or troops) were located on just one side of the moving group. This was not a gap in the sense described, but nevertheless a very effective, imo reasonable and elegant interpretation of the rules. I wished we could see this convention included in the triumph rules - in the Washington Grand Company's clear and impeccable phrasing.

all the best

I think 34.3 c on page 12 allows the group move you are mentioning.

Groups are allowed to reduce frontage as they move forward. Not seeing any restriction preventing what you mention above?

I'm referring to 40.1-4. Here, reducing frontage is only allowed when moving through a gap.
