9.6.2 Strategical Value

Strategical defense or attack reasons are assigned to any move which matches a pattern of type `a' or `d'. These are moves which in some (often intangible) way tend to help strengthen or weaken a dragon. Of course strengthening a dragon which is already alive should not be given much value, but when the move reason is generated it is not necessary to check its status or safety. This is done later, during the valuation phase.
