Yeah, I found that sentence last nigt on a re-read. I guess I missed it first time round cos it makes no logical sense...
Actually it makes sense for balance. If we allowed people to move home from anywhere, they would do it to get around town faster. That is also the reason that when you return to town you must start in a street square.
Also, you don't go home after a fight. I'm not sure where that came from.
On the first turn, you can't get your dude home according to the rules. You have to wait until your second turn. But honestly, I don't have a problem allowing this for the first turn. We started the game in the street for ease of explanation of how the game starts, not to prohibit going home the first turn.
