Greetings Praxians!

Here are the positions after the fourth move and battles, and results of fifth alliance attempts and suchlike.

You may now send orders for the fifth move.

-Impala and High Llama forces have attacked Sable at Moonbroth.
I'll include details of this battle for those interested in how I use the rules. On Moonbroth were the Sable Khan and Founder, a Sable H (425) clan, two Sable M (3*35) clans, a Sable Herd, and the Nose Horn Herd. Another clan (L) and Herd are just to the nw, having been prevented from entering by the ZOC of the attacking stack. At 1ne Moonbroth were High Llama Founder, Waha!'s Champion, Impala Khan and a clan (1** 3 6), and the Men-and-a-Half. High Llama Founder attacked with magic. Sable Founder defended, as attacking would have allowed Waha!'s Champion to participate in the magical battle using defensive magic, (has only range factor 0). High Llama rolled a 2, and so chose to eliminate the Sable H clan. Sable Founder's highest possible result would be 9, too low to kill High Llama Founder. In the shooting segment Impala also rolled a 2, for no result, while the Sable clans rolled a six, disrupting the Impala clan, chosen as casualty by the owner as this is the weakest unit in the stack. In close combat both sides rolled 4. As Sable had a cf total of 17 (+1 to each clan for Khan's presence) the loss inflicted is 8. The top unit of the enemy having a higher cf than 8, (High Llama Founder - 12) there are no losses, but I will now use a rule of my own and disrupt the High Llama Founder as he has been hit for half his cf. The allies' cf total was 31 so the loss inflicted is 15. The Sable units didn't move this turn so they are considered to have defe nsive terrain bonus. Sable Founder (topmost unit) thus counts as half-again - 15 - so only he is killed and no one else. Using another new rule I say that Sable is pushed out of Moonbroth, one hex back, due to having suffered a higher cf loss. Another rule of mine which could have come into play here (had not the Sable H clan been eliminated before close combat) is the Sable Bypass Rule, whereby Sable forces, on account of their superior integration of combined arms may bypass the top unit when selecting casualties of close combat. For each additional Sable clan type fighting in a close combat the Sable player may bypass one unit from the top down when selecting enemy casualties of close combat. To clarify, if there is only a single type of Sable clan (H, M, or L, regardless of how many units) in a fight the Sable player may only select the topmost enemy unit, as normal. If there are two different types among the Sable units then the top enemy unit may be bypassed and the second to the top unit chosen as a casualty. If Sable has all three different unit types in a fight then two top enemy units may be thus bypassed.
