Single-roll battle decision was meant to speed up physical play and required tables. In our context it isn't necessary but I've still used it. I don't remember how exactly I did it back then and thought of something new.

This is the procedure for casualty calculation:

Every connection between provinces has a "Width" or "Frontage" value; terrain comes already built-in with this feature. The system works so that the only way to employ a numerical advantage, other than several turns of attrition warfare, is to outflank the enemy. During a player's turn -for now I thought of this for player by player rather than simultaneous movement- he commands a certain number of attacking units against an enemy province. He counts the following values:

-The outcome of a d100 roll (0 is the best result for defender, 100 for attacker)

-Total Attacker Strength (TAS)

-Total Defender Strength (TDS)

-Total Frontage (F) in province connections

(There are cases where there's a lot of total frontage but the attacker doesn't have the units in the right provinces, that changes the procedure, but assume it's not for now)

Compare TAS and F.

TAS>F, F = Committed Attacker Strength (CAS).

TAS<F, TAS = CAS.

Same procedure to calculate Committed Defender Strength (CDS).

With insufficient frontage the attacker can't put all of his strength on his frontline.

Next, CAS-CDS = Outflanking Strength.
