<Snip interesting and realistic system>

O.K. This all sounds really nice, but the point of the revision and whole
purpose of NetEpic is being lost here. NetEpic is basically a revamp of
the original SM/TL game that was so pouplar and fun to play. Radical
changes of the system like the one proposed here are NOT what is a needed.
Sure, its a great idea. But the basic mechanics of the game should remain
relatively unchanged. I don't want to radically overhaul the basic
mechanics. Leave the basic game play as it is. We need some simple and
abstract enhancements to improve realism here. Sure, they won't work for
everything but at least they will enhance the original game rather than
radically alter it.

Keep this idea Tzeench. It IS excellent but not what is needed. Perhaps
we can use it for NetEpic Deluxe or we could write a generic Epic-scale
wargame using this mechanic. But my vote is against this kind of radical
change (no offense).
