Yes, that's right (well, it's how we play it anyway). Remember you can also carry-over the "free" hex from minor road travel onto a major road.

While we're on the road (subject), can people please confirm to me a curiousity I only noticed the other day? Although primary roads ignore terrain, secondary ones don't (DP 6.1.2). As far as I can see, this only affects the minor roads coming up out of Dwarf Run - is it right that coming up the minor roads across the ridgelines there should cost an extra (i.e. 2) MP? (Unless it happens to be the third "free" one?)

TTFN, Steve W
