When using neutral huts can they be used as stepping stones?
No clarification from the variant rules, but my instinctinve guess would be 'of course not'. Neutral huts don't belong to anyone, that's why they're neutral .
also, if the village has only one spot on which to put a hut, can one place a neutral one there?
This one is in the variant rules: no.
