I remember that sentence striking me oddly, as well. I was confident the intent was that you score the area from which the guy was removed, but the wording of that sentence is ambiguous, no question.

This seems like a case where the sentence indeed has grammatical ambiguity, but an iota of common sense should indicate what the intended meaning is...

It never even occurred to me to interpret that as "remove a follower, and then score any territory you like where you have some follower" i.e. once you get a follower in a huge region, you just leave him there and keep scoring that huge region every second turn by placing followers in random crap locations every other turn. That seems like blatant rules lawyering of the silliest kind.

That is:
A player may [remove a follower and score] any territory where he has one or more followers,

It is not:
A player may [remove a follower] and [score any territory where he has one or more followers],

Quote:
SCORING A TERRITORY
Instead of deploying a follower, a player can remove an already deployed follower and score the points for the territory
where it was.


I think this is a pretty straightforward rule.

A player may remove a follower and score that particular territory that has one or more followers on it.
