Proposed Canon

Upkeep is the amount of money paid by a side every Turn to retain the services of a Unit and cause its rations to pop.Erf-b1-p039Same-site.PNG and Erf-b1-p138Same-site.PNG Upkeep is paid every turn, but does not need to be paid in full. By consuming provisions, only a portion of a Unit's upkeep needs to be paid.
