I ran all this past my gaming pals via email. There was a mixed reaction: we’re a fairly conservative bunch.
At any rate, another FATE CARD has been offered:
The gods will protect him!
Select a general from your force to engage an enemy general in single combat. Each throw a D6.
On an odd number, the enemy general is eliminated. On an even number, your general is killed.
In Field of Glory, BGs can function without generals in command range (typically you have 3 or more) but their ability to assist in bonus movement, boost morale and help in combat would be missed. So this Fate Card, out of any, might be a game changer.
