South American Supremacy

1. The Starting Year is 1835, though the map represents no exact period in time. Rather, the map and the variant as a whole are a composite of 19th century South America.

2. Starting Positions: Chile: F Val, A San Argentina: F BAs, A Cor, A Sal Brasil: F SaP, A Rio, F Slv, A Man Bolivia: F Ant, A LaP Colombia: F Cal, F Car, A Bog Paraguay: A Asu, A Con Peru: F Lim, A Tru Venezuela: A Mar, F Ccs.

3. The Andes Mountains: Indicated by a darkened border, separating the western ridge of the continent from the interior. Units may not cross the Andes Mountains (like Switzerland) except at "passes," marked on the map by two small parallel lines with a normal (light) border between them. The Andes Mountains form the border between Cali and Popayan, and stretch all the way south to separate Valparaiso from Cordoba.

4. Rivers: Very simple. The Amazon and Parana rivers are navigable by fleets. They are NOT separate bodies of water themselves. This means that fleets can move up and along these river borders just like fleets on coastlines can. For example, a fleet could on subsequent turns move from RdP to BAs to SaF to Crt to Asu to Mis to Prn, etc. etc. No special order format is needed. Support operates as normal, though it should be noted that fleets CANNOT support actions involving inland territories while on a river. Just as a Fleet in Belgium could not support an Army Burgundy into Ruhr, neither could a Fleet Santa Fe support an Army Cordoba into Rosario. Also, fleets may not convoy while on a river (just like fleets on a coastal territory may not convoy in standard.)

5. British, French, Dutch Guyana: European controlled territories that are impassable like Switzerland. Tierra del Fuego: Some of the most inhospitable land on the face of this earth. It is also impassable.

6. Victory conditions, turn movement, and all other aspects of SAS conform to Standard in every way. 18 SCs is a solo. Province List
