[Solved] IS ARTILLERY FIRE OPTIONAL?
Is artillery fire optional?
Yahoo Group, 4/20/17
No. Another assumption from many systems is that a variety of actions are optional – such as skirmishing or artillery – neither is the case in ESR. Unlimbered artillery with a target *does fire* and infantry with a target within range and arc *does skirmish*. The players may not choose not to, it is below their level of command, when it comes to making those decisions, “they hired people for that” (5.1).
