Thus the army does not maintain any constant strategic configuration of power, water has no constant shape. One who is able to change and transform in accord with the enemy and wrest victory is termed spiritual.

This seems to be the key to great escalators: to have forces that seem to be nowhere in particular, but can be anywhere and everywhere when required.

I'll leave it for someone else to rephrase in proper Levite form, lol.

how about: "Thou shalt not amass thine armies in few locations, but rather spread the wealth of thy might across all the lands."

That last one was so big and profound that I had to break it into two separate commandments. Number 10 and 11 go to you guys for working on it so hard and giving me the ideas for the wordings.

Thanks guys; Thanks to everyone for participating.
=D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

Remember that it does not have to end here. If any new thoughts come to mind just jot them down. If they are complicated and profound we will turn them into two or three separate SoC Commandments. What ever it takes.

Thou shalt look upon thy neighbor and consider, If you remove his stack from off thy land, would not another find him easier to eliminate from off the face of all the earth?

Thou shalt never attempt the elimination of thy neihbor, till thou hast received word from the oracles (adviser's) of it's successful outcome potential. Lest thou be found giving the spoils of war and the points to another.

I would add this game as an example of this Law.
