I am struggling with 8.7.3. I am able to select destinations. However moving pieces is difficult for me.
Can you move militia towards a destination without actually reaching it ?
Can someone explain the below statement in other words and share an example of where it would apply ? Does this mean you cannot move troops from 2 originating regions into a single destination ?
Not that you cannot do so, but that you should not do so as long as there are any other options available.
"First" in the bot flowcharts means "before trying anything else". It never means "only this".
“”Select first as origins those spaces whence the most Troops will
be able to reach the highest priority destination above where —-no Marching Troops will yet have arrived—“”
The lines immediately before your quote says that you may select up to as many origin spaces as you have selected destinations. The part you quoted says that as long as possible, select each such origin space to reach - meaning "actually arrive in" - a different destination than the previous ones. If there are destinations that are out of reach from all possible origin spaces, any remaining origin spaces you are allowed to select instead send their Troops to one of the destinations that already have Troops moving to it.
