The rules use a different term explaining the capture movement of these
pieces, but is the actual translation the same?  Obviously, the final
effect of the movement is different.

For example, the term 'hurl' is used to describe the Dwarf capture move.
 Does this mean that a Dwarf can pass over, or leap, other pieces to strike
their target?  Or is the translation exactly like the 'shove' of the
Trolls, a movement through vacant cells until it strikes its target?
