24.2 Legions

The first thing you'll need to do in order to mine or to attack a mine or
stronghold is squads for your Legion. To do this, just find a denizen that is
effectively selling squads. These denizens are the conduit to squads looking
for work. Squadmaster Barakus is the man to see about squads. Barakus can be
found in a mining camp just off the path that leads across the Northern Vashnar
Mountains, eventually going to Mhaldor.

Just BUY <squad> as you'd buy from any other shop. By default, your Legion is
limited to 1000 people, divided into squads of up to 20.

Within your Legion are two types of squads, called Cohorts. There's the Mining
Cohort, which is composed of your mining squads, and the Soldier Cohort,
composed of one of five base types of soldier squad.

Squads have the following attributes:
 Cohort          : Either Mining or Soldier.
 Name            : Such as Rico's Roughnecks or Swamp Witches.
 Level           : Squads start at level 1, and can advance as far as level 
                   10. See below for more info.
 Strength        : How many people are in the squad. When first purchased, 
                   squads have 20 members.
 Squad type      : Either Miner or, if a soldier squad, Infantry, Heavies, 
                   Assassins, Archers, Wizards.
 Specialisations : This only applies to mining squads. Each mining squad not
                   only levels up as it is in a mine that produces raw comms,
                   but will start to level up its expertise at mining specific
                   raw comms as it mines that raw comm.


Squad Levels
------------
As mining squads in a mine produce raw commodities, it and every other friendly
squad in the mine gets squad experience, eventually leading to it leveling up
to a max of level 10.

As mining squads level up, they get a chance to produce commodities faster than
usual. Every squad level adds a 1 percent chance that that squad will
generate an extra comm when it produces one normally.

Further, as mining squads generate commodities they also get specialisation
levels in that commodity, and for each specialisation level there's an additional 2 percent chance of generating an extra comm when one is normally produced.
