You have to teleport the entire troop as it counts as a move, but it doesn't use up a move action.
That is not true.
You don't have to teleport entire troop.
Explanation of a move action says:
It is not mandatory to move all the units of the troop; the player can leave some of them on his way.
Further rules say:
Within the limits of its movement capacity and resources, the troop can alternate Pyramid teleportation, ground transportation, and Harbor crossing in the same Movement, without any restriction.
If I understand it correctly, "to alternate" means to change back and forth. So in this case multiple teleportations would be legitimate.To OP quesions:
2)Can a player teleport his troop of 5 units from the pyramid on each temple separately provided that he can pay the PP.For example teleport 1 unit to 1 temple leaving 4 units on his pyramid,then again teleport 1 unit on 1 temple leaving 3 units on his pyramid and so on....Is this move valid?From what i understood every time you teleport a troop from your pyramid counts as a move action?
That would not be allowed, because you can move only one troop leaving some units on the way.
If you leave 4 out of 5 units, you can continue to move only the 1 unit you have actually moved.
1)The yellow player acts last before the ending of the day phase,he has the teleport power tile and 10 total prayer points.He teleports his troop of 4 units with scarab to 1 edge temple for 2 PP,then he uses +3 movement to the river temple coming there with 3 units and scarab,leaving 1 unit behind on previous temple,then again teleporting to the 3rd temple with 2 units,again leaving 1 unit behind,and then again teleporting to the 4th temple leaving 1 unit behind.At the end of his move he had 4 temples and on each temple 1 unit standing.Is this move valid?
According to rules as written it seems legitimate. But...
I would like to see some official clarification on this one.
This exact move can earn 4/5 points in a single action! If a player is last in turn this game braking. I won couple of times this way ant it just don't feel fair.
