Since R2 has been announced I've been reading up ancient Rome and obviously it military. It seems wherever the Romans went the legion would always hunker down at the end of the day and build a camp/fort to protect themselves. The next day they would set out and destroy the camp if they weren't coming back. Does anyone think this will be in R2? In RTW you always had the option to build a fort if you had a general in your army and paid 500 denari for it but it seemed kinda just thrown in.
Also, a legion had about 6000 soldiers plus officers but was usually under that. I found many mentions of how there was nearly as many non-combatants that went with the legion like supply personal, smiths, the expendable red shirt, etc. In all the layouts of Roman camps I see there is never a section that shows where these non-combatants stayed. They wouldn't stay outside the camp because whose gonna risk losing all your support personal? If anyone knows anything about that I'd like to know.
