Britannia gets ready to march (Campaign 2)

The Pro-Consul of Britannia, Secundus Tofieldicus Toeus has decided to go on a whistle stop tour of the province. He leaves the northern borders and marches south with the XX Legion and six cohorts of Auxiliaries, there is nothing out of the ordinary about this and no one suspects anything untoward.......he is just a Consul Governor doing his rounds once a year. However, with the news of the Emperors illness, Secundus has been motivated into doing a stock take of men and resources for the area and checking the loyalty of commanders and tribes in the province. This is a bold move for Secundus, treasonous even, but Secundus has never been one for waiting around and has decided to make the first steps to becoming the new Emperor. It will take time to build new units and supplies for his conquest, but being in the north of Britannia, on the edge of the known world, time is the one thing he has got plenty of. As long as he keeps it quite.
