        • Aegeus gets word that the two legions are marching together, and that his employer expects him to lure one legion away from the other.

          Taking notes from his long expeditions, he decides. "We shall maintain our marching order and general battle plan. But instead of making contact and trying to draw them out, we will advance into Roman territory somewhat, all the while looking for terrain that suits our preferred battle plans. We will deny battle, but we will force him to deploy a response, for we will threaten his lands which he must succor."

          Aegeus tells the Samnites his own direction of travel will be towards the West coast, and that they should make their efforts east to pull a legion towards them as well, force the Romans to split their forces with more than a few days march between them.

          Aegeus has scouts sent to keep an eye on the Romans and apprise him of his movements, using his long wartime experience to match wits with the certainly less experienced Roman Consuls. He then sends scouting parties to locate likely places along his route to fight a battle or to move to to avoid contact with the Romans, such as bogs, forests, broken terrain. Finally, Aegeus leads from the front, with the Mamertines out forward of the column in a scouting vanguard with orders to loot and burn once they've hit Roman territory, Aegeus intends to force the Romans to travel light and fast, without opportunity for their heavy equipment or supply trains to keep up, and burn crops and stores that he himself cannot use in order to deny the Romans the benefit of living off the land even as he forces the citizen-soldiers to exhaust themselves chasing his army of predominately hardened professionals which are to a man lighter and swifter afoot than the Roman hoplites.
