That sounds right, but I will let someone else chime in to confirm.

One ALTERNATE rule I like, which I'd like to see added to the rules set permanently, is for certain holy places, primarily major temples, to give a "terrain bonus" when it comes to selecting casualties of magic. Thus, a MgF 4 unit in the Shaker's Temple would actually take 6 MgF losses to eliminate. This would apply to DSM as well as offensive spirit magic, and probably physical magic as well. Not Chaos magic, though, at least, I can't see how to apply such a rule to that concept, which deals in units rather than factor totals. Besides, I like the idea that the Shaker's Temple is as vulnerable to Chaos as is Boldhome or, for that matter, Apple Lane.
