I wanted to be sure I'm understanding the Line of Sight rules. In the example on page 11, I assume the green arrow inicates that LOS exists, and the red arrows indicate LOS is blocked?

So in the left hand example, LOS is clear because the object it is crossing is a table, not a blocking object.

In the middle example, LOS is blocked (even though there is no blocking object) because of the corner.

In the right hand example, LOS is blocked because the LOS line runs along the edge of (but not through) the blocking object.

The last two examples are different from the way LOS works in most other games, so I wanted to be sure I was understanding them correctly.

Yes, you are correct on all points.

Green = Has LOS
Red = No LOS

And yes, LOS is a little more restrictive in this game. Usually however with the rectangular rooms and long corridors LOS doesn't come into play nearly at all.
