    FORTUNES OF WAR

    At the end of any given turn sequence which a victory objective was gained, the side that claimed the victory token will roll 2 dice, and using the results rolled may choose one breakthrough from their chart. Breakthrough dice rolls may never be re-rolled, therefore, if doubles are rolled, or if both dice rolled result in a breakthrough or breakthroughs already owned, then there is no breakthrough awarded for that token gained.
