Speculation

A battle is a term for combat between two or more opposing sides. It is unclear whether battle refers to a single turn of action between two sides, or until one side is defeated or withdraws, or an entire day's fighting, or all or none of these. It could be assumed that a series of days' combat over multiple hexes could be called a "campaign", although the Battle for Gobwin Knob fits these criteria and remains a "battle". The use of the word "skirmish" is also very limited (or non-existent) within Erfworld, even though this describes what happens when two unled, non-scout units/stacks meet in the field.
