Hello!
I come from Poland and I'm currently studying English and everything concerned with it at university. Many a time have I faced a situation here in my country when rules where wrongly interpretted because the style in which the rules are written. For example, today we had a discussion whether a catapult can target a character who has protection from general fire due to proximity. Most people reasoned that since it's not written that catapults ignore proximity, the character can't be targeted. The problem was the phrase "lone characters are fair game", which doesn't do them justice, since they claim it's fluff, and fluffy texts do not carry the valid weight rules do. Does this happen to you guys to ?
