In A6.7 of ASLRB it is stated that "Whenever a LOS crosses (or goes along the shared hexside of) two hexes that have the same range to the firer, however, only the LOS Hindrance of the hex with the highest applicable LOS Hindrance DRM is counted. Therefore, the number of hexes in which a LOS Hindrance applies will not exceed the range." This is not indicated in the SK rules (at least I haven't seen it).

As far a this "modifies" rather than "simplifies" the rule, I think that SK players should implement this rule.

Wouldn't that assume they know the full ASL rules?

Hard to implement a rule you don't know about.

Of course they don't. But in my opinion SK should have the less rules that have to be modified, rather than added, when you make the step to full ASL.

So, for instance, when you incorporate bypass rules you don't modify what you know already of movement. But in this case the rule changes.

The Starter Kit rules are marvelous examples of economy. When you look at the Orchard and Grain entries both refer to Hindrances between the target and the firer. Which is the range, right?
