Good call. This is a definite need. It would especially handy for trying to
track down a group that has taken something from you and that you want to
attack. As it is now, you run around a lot hoping to end up in the same space
as them so you can launch an attack before they move away at the start of next
turn. This might also allow for groups to cooperate a heck of a lot better, by
creating secure sub-locations that could be used as transfer points for goods
and the like.
