Each area on the map except Egypt has a "revolt index," reflecting how much of the populace has risen against the government and gone over to the Mahdi. The indices vary from 0 to 10.
At the start of the game, their values are determined randomly. Roll 1d6+2 for the Southern Sudan, and roll 1d6 each for the Eastern, Western, and Northern Sudan.
Here we go then. I am using an online dice roll site, very useful if you are out and about!
Southern Sudan, 4
Eastern Sudan, 4
Western Sudan, 6
Northern Sudan, 2
Every move I will roll a d6. if the score is less than or equal to the Revolt Index for that region, then the region is considered to be "In Revolt".
You'll note the Western Sudan is starting the game in revolt already! That Osman Digna..!
