Tables used by the moderator for handling orders and messages.

Courier Success : rolled for every Message and Order sent by any officer or unit.

Order Implementation : rolled for every Order received by a Non-player officer or unit.

Order Execution: rolled for every Order received by a Non-player officer or unit.

Panic means retreat a hex if ordered to stand or advance.
    Panic outcomes are treated as Blunder if no enemy is in LoS.
Blunder is just that, officer will do something other than follow his orders.
    Moderator will create several possible mistakes and roll a die to choose one.
Waiver means the officer hesitates and will only use half his MP in following the order.

The Order Execution Table will also be used at the moderators discretion whenever an opportunity arises for a non player unit to take initiative.
If a good move is available the Moderator will roll on the Order Execution Table to determine if the unit/officer takes advantage of it.
