I swear there was a thread around here about that...but can't find it.

Just ignore the examples. The errata is correct and it just goes up for each Outpost.

What Jack said...

I got the living rulebook done, but for some reason it hasn't been posted to GMT's site yet. I just sent the powers that be an email.

In the errata or somewhere on BGG Joel mentioned that it's harder to find water with horses because of the thematic difficulty in leading horses into narrow mountain passes to look for water holes.

I wonder, why would you use the horse area value when finding a water hole? (The Living Rules use the word "may"). Isn't it always more expensive that way?

based on joel's wording in the google doc, i think the living rules should have used MUST instead of MAY for the added text in section 3.2.1

joel's intent seems to be that families with horses should have a harder time finding water than those without hoursed. that would only seem to be possible if they were forced to use the parenthesized value.

Yes I believe that to be the case. Once you assign Horses to a Family you can't voluntarily remove them, so it would fit in Joel's description of the underlying theme.

Correct.
