Scouting is a means of gaining information instead of or in conjunction with Lookamancers.
A scouting unit is generally posessed of a high Move, is cheap (and therefore expendable), or, ideally, both.
To be of use, a scouting unit must have a means of conveying the information it gathers to its superiors.
Some methods used:
- Thinkagram, as offered by Charlie's archons
- Message Hats
- Passing notes from hex to hex along a caravan.Erf-b1-p052-p14
Barring all of these, messages can be hand delivered by troops with the Move available to reach their Commander.
