Should the second paragraph of the Home Estates rule (7.2.3) say

Quote:
A shield in a Shire that matches family heraldry is considered a Home Estate...
rather than

Quote:
A Shire with a shield that matches a family shield is said to be a Home Estate...
The latter means that the Shire, rather than any of the shields it contains, is the Home Estate, so that, since (7.2.6) an Estate may be used by only one player during the Wintering Phase, only a single player can place units in a Shire. But this contradicts the relevant rule (end of 7.2.6) and the immediately following example, both of which discuss placing units from different players in a single Sire, provided there are different shields that can accommodate them.

What is the "extent" of a Home Estate: a Shire or a shield?

Yes, technically that is a better wording and is clearer, since it is the "shield", per se, that represents a home estate. I.e. a Shire can have multiple "home estates" based on the number of shields located therein.

Thanks. I now see several other places in the rules that reinforce that: as worded it's just wrong.

SAC, I've added this correction to the Living Rules file to be sent to Charlie...

I know he's got a rush project dealing with the issues in The Supreme Commander, so I'm going to hold off on sending him the Living Rules updates until he's done with that.
