One gentle hill in arable?

It seems like you can only choose one gentle hill in arable topography, but any number of steep/wooded hills... I don't understand the aim of this rule.

We'll take a look at it this weekend. Just off the top of my head, though, I'd point out that gentle hills count as open terrain -- allowing anyone to take too many of those is essentially allowing them to play at their choice on a pool table (okay, a warped pool table) with no difficult terrain. That has been allowed for Steppe topography, where it is fairly common in the real world, but in most cases arable topography would have lots of places with things growing in them that wouldn't be ideal terrain for mounted.

A-ha, got it. Now it makes sense. And after all, 'arable' inhabitants worth their salt should already have planted grapes on all gentle hills close by... :-)

And most of the steep ones, too!
