2nd Battle of Outreach Clarification
« on: 18 June 2013, 06:13:25 »
Per page 35 of Dawn of the Jihad, and pages 90 and 93 of the Blake Documents, Sixth Division (True Believers IV-theta) and Tenth Division (Shooting Stars IV-beta) led the Blakist counterattack on Outreach in the wake of the AMC assault on Mars. However, per pages 39 and 41 of Total Chaos, that counterattack was led by First Division (True Devotion IV-beta) and Fourth Division (Blake's Boldest IV-iota), and page 41 specifically mentions 1st Division's CO, Precentor Shin-ichi Yoshizumi. While Total Chaos is a newer source, it is heavily contradicted by both Dawn of the Jihad and the Blake Documents, the latter of which makes no mention of either First or Fourth Division's involvement in the fighting on Outreach while specifically highlighting that of Sixth and Tenth Divisions. Is Total Chaos correct, and the entries in DotJ and TBD the result of bad intel, or is Total Chaos incorrect and in need of some minor errata?

Hi,

You may be right that this is one case where newer doesn't trump older. That should have been the Sixth and Tenth at the Outreach counterattack.

Thanks,

- Herb

Thanks for clearing that up so quickly.
