In addition to this if this player remains unbroken at the end of the game this player receives an additional 2 TP’s.

Note that is at anytime during the game all remaining fortitude is in a single unit, the army is
considered to be broken. Note also that once broken an army cannot then become unbroken
e.g. by raising new units with fortitude using the Lore of Undeath

In addition to this the player that holds the center point at the end of the game receives a
further 3 TP’s. To hold the center point a unit must contain fortitude (excluding the general
