The town of Sudbury had become a regional HQ for local Empire troops. Four small Canadian military units were based there. Unknown to them, an American commander was keen to take this position, and had five military units at his disposal. Surprise was vital to this mission, and with careful preparation, he made his move.
The American force utilised a train to within twenty miles of their objective, they then travelled by horse. Reaching their objective undiscovered, and with several hours before dawn, their commander allowed his column to rest. The Empire garrison being totally unaware of their nearby approach (D1). However, the garrison commander had the good sense to post five (D5) sentries, and they knew their duties (D6).
The garrison had occupied several mining buildings, and others served as barracks. They also had a warehouse serving as stables. The American commander decided to launch a single attack (D3), by advancing at double-time, but without noise. If they could not take the position, they were to destroy its effectiveness, and return to their train, which also had a guard of four soldiers (two dice).
MOVE ONE. American troops advanced, at twelve inches, dice were thrown to see if a sentry spotted their advance, D6, the Americans scored a D3, the sentry fired his rifle and started shouting out the alarm.
