In this case the rules are pretty clear - it's more a problem of the layout of the paragraph that makes it easy to overlook it :)
And if you consider that the book is a "one man show" from Lorenzo who does the writing, the setting and layout and the preprintprocessing all on his own I think he is doing a great job :dance4:

No, only if you make assumption's. Without the benefit of Lorenzo's personal input arguments could easily be made. Point of fact it needs to be written more concisely.

Of course I sympathize with the workload and fully support his efforts not to mention I'm obviously a fan and am impressed with his game. We are all on the same team here and need to offer good constructive criticism to help the rules grow and saying things are fine when they are not isn't very helpful IMHO. There are now plenty of dedicated gamers that can help Lorenzo go over things so he does not have to go it all alone on the next edition. Jim for example I think would be an excellent proof reader and I would not be surprised if he was already in discussion with Lorenzo to help out.

I'm totally with you. Of course constructive criticism is important and as yo are a native English speaker I'm sure you can give a lot of valuable input. Jim is busily helping with proofreading afaik but maybe you'd be able to help out a bit as well if your time allows?

I would be more then happy to, but native speaker notwithstanding grammar was never my best suit so someone else would be better stepping into the breach on that..... :blush2: that said, I can look at sentences from a wargamers angle and help remove grey areas. While no rule set is ever fault free I think the no version will be more clear with all the help as there are quite a few dedicated players on the Impetus forum. :)
