What was that Army to do? The defeated Third Turcowaz Army had withdrawn into the capital, Ionople, effectively scratching that city off the list of achievable objectives. But it was yet possible to besiege or storm Adrianople. Close to deciding on that course, General Dimitriev suddenly bethought himself that perhaps there was more of interest to be done in West Thrace. No sooner thought than acted upon; westward marched IIIrd Army. (Options: 1 = Lay siege to Adrianople; 2-3 = Storm Adrianople; 4-6 = March into West Thrace. The die roll was 6).
For all the fine performance of the Turcowaz armies so far, the situation remained perilous for the Empire. Three of the main armies (First, Second and Fourth) were cut off far to the west of the capital, but they were at least in a central position surrounded by enemies, and in far greater readiness for further action. Having barged its way though the II Bejelan and Ist Chervenian Armies, Second Turcowaz re-entered North Macedonia.
First Army found itself at something of a loose end, but with a very wide range of options:
- Await events in Vardar (1-2)
- Advance into West Bejela and invest Belgrade (3-4)
- Follow up II Bejela Army into East Bejela (5)
- Follow up Ist Chervenia Army into Chervenia (6).
