Syrian Convoys and Indian Railroads

Post by Fantabulor » Sat Dec 06, 2014 9:43 pm

Hey,

Another two rule clarifications:

1) For territories like Syria that border two 'convoy' sea zones, which sea zone is used to block the convoy? Is it either zone or both or a particular zone? Please clarify how these are to be determined.

2) For Eastern India, is the convoy disruption valid on the British player? It seems counter-intuitive that India would use convoys to transfer wealth within India rather than some sort of railroad system... Please confirm.

Cheers,

To clarify on point two, I am in a situation where the Indian player only controls Eastern and Western India. It seems odd that the Indians would choose to brave sub-infested waters rather than simply ship their resources overland. Particularly when three of that income is from the destination itself, it seems a bit... misguided. I understand in the case of Britain where its production depends on overseas possessions, as sinking the convoy at departure or arrival achieves the same goal. Since this is not the case with India, I'm wondering if the convoy disruption might only take effect after Britain loses control of the territory, as Japan would then be shipping resources to their homeland.

1) The IPCs can be lost from either or both. See the example of Scotland on page 24 of the Rulebook.

2) Yes. Think of it as coastal shipping.
