That is the way I interpreted it. If you want more rules clarifications for the To Forge a Realm expansion, there is a pdf you can download off of BGG.
The website address is http://www.boardgame...filepage/46123
If the link doesn't work, just visit the Kingsburg-To Forge A Realm page and go to the Files section of the page.
Also, if you like Kingsburg, there is a Java version with AI opponents that you can download. And this can be played with just the base game or expansion. It is a lot of fun!!
The website address for the Java version is http://mitglied.lycos.de/thunderfall/
Again, if the link doesn't work, visit BGG's Kingsburg page. You will find the link to it the More Information section of the page under Online Play. You can also play Kingsburg in real-time on BrettspielWelt. Their website is http://www.brettspielwelt.de
