No need to worry counters will cover this. Were thinking on making a different
color counter for each morale level with its morale value on it. Much easier to
track this way.

True, I have tried to make suppression rules for net epic, all are horribly
artificail and slow the game down. This is one thing we can leave out.

I agree, although teh resolution system is simple it is not decisive. Perhaps
the simplest thing is to obligate teh loser (as detemined by who lost the most
stands in combat) to retreat a full fallback move and have teh victor move to
take the objective. This adds no complications to the game and gets a more
decisive result to close combat. It also eliminates a lot of cheesy
