Locations are maps that can be included as part of a starting force and have effects that you can pay for to use during the game. Such effects are called Location Bonuses.
If you are the player that chooses the map and you chose the Location, you can use the Bonus(es) you paid for.
If you didn’t choose the map and didn’t win the roll for the first player, you instead can use the Consolation(s) associated with the Bonus(es) you paid for.
You may only add one Location to your starting force. However, you may add any number of a Location’s different Bonuses to your starting force by paying their individual costs.
When a player is defeated, their opponent scores each Location Bonus that they paid for as part of their force construction.
