One thing of note that is not directly stated, but I think is specified in context.  When the author writes:

'After carrying out its movement, the Ariki has the right to throw 2 stones in any direction (orthogonal or diagonal) and any number of squares.'  

I assume that it means two things:

-An ariki MUST move in order to throw stones.
-An ariki may move and only throw one or no stones, as specified by it having a 'right' to do so, not an obligation.

If the inventor or any players would like to clarify that this is correct or incorrect, please let me know.  I am playing a game and will assume these rules as such until told otherwise.  Thank you :)
