FAQ

Adventurers

Does Shayliss Arsen’s (Regal Princess Version) character’s ability stack with Murder Circus?

Yes. However, you only add a single purple die. If you have chosen multiple targets to attack with Murder Circus, you may only choose one target to deal the additional damage to.

Abilities

Can you use FU Abilities during a Counter?

Yes.

Counter gives you an Attack. This Attack counts as a normal Attack for all rule purposes. However, it’s important to remember that you cannot use Abilities when it is not your turn unless the Ability specifically says otherwise. Symbol Abilities specify when they can be used and thus can always be used during a Counter. Disciplines on the other hand might or might not be able to be used depending on their Text Conditions.

Example 1: Since Quick Blow specifies that it can be used during the Follow Up step of your Attack, it can be used during a Counter that occurs on either your turn or another’s.

 

Do abilities that reflect damage work even if the attack being reflected caused me to become defeated?

Yes. Any Ability that occurs when damage is dealt happens before any figures are defeated.

Does the Relentless tag Ignore the Heavy or Hulking tag?

Yes.

If a spell has more than one target do I roll my casting dice multiple times to determine a force for each target?

No.

Unless the ability specifically says to determine a force against each target, you should always determine the force of the spell once.

I.e. Each target will make a separate conviction check against the same force value.

Combatants

Does the Merk Hound’s Sticky ability interrupt my movement?

No. If you did not start your movement next to a Merk Hound, then you can still move pass them without ending your movement.

What does it mean when a Special Encounter Rule states that the figure follows the rules of an Adventurer even though they use a Combatant card?

It means that any time a rule references an Adventurer it applies to that figure as well. It also means that they have a pack with a size of 3. Otherwise, they follow the rules of a Command Combatant. See Pg. 52 in the Rulebook.

Effects

If a figure is inflicted by Wilt do they take extra damage from being knocked into a wall?

No. The wall is dealing the damage.  Wilt only adds damage to damage dealt from attacks.

If I use a Vow Token to add extra damage until the end of my turn, do I add extra damage from knocking a figure into a wall?

No. The wall is dealing the damage. Vow only adds damage to damage dealt from your spells and attacks.

General

Can you half or double damage twice?

Nope. If one or more effect would double or half the damage from a single attack or spell action, you only apply one modifier.

Can you heal or take more damage than you have?

No. No figure may have more damage than it’s printed total Health Value. No figure may heal more damage than they currently have dealt.

Do I round up or down?

When players must round any number, they always round up.

Do Jumps have to be made in a straight line?

Yes.

Jumping still follows normal movement rules, other than it ignores Effects from all Terrain other than Obstructing Terrain. This means that you can count out the spaces in any pattern you’d like before you decide to make the Jump Check.

Example: Both Jump Checks from A to B or from C to D would be legal.

 

If something would move me out of a space but I cannot move for whatever reason (There’s a wall in the way, my character has the heavy tag, etc) do adjacent opponents still get break attacks?

No.

What happens if a hidden or special rule references and requires a figure on the board that is no longer alive?

Ignore the special rule or any of the flavor text. None of the events transpire as the figure has since passed away.

Terrain

Are Terrain tokens ever affected by the “current” rules?

No. Any Terrain Tokens added to the board never have a current added to them, and will not be moved by currents. Unless stated otherwise, Loot tokens, and Combatant Tokens are the only tokens affected by currents.

Does a figure attacking another figure on lower Elevation ignore Hindering Terrain?

No. Figures Attacking another Figure at a lower Elevation ignore both Opponents and other Allies, but not Terrain.

See the Elevation Errata we posted here.

If I share a space of Hindering Terrain with a token, do attacks I make against that token count as being made into hindering terrain?

Yes. In rare cases, you can attack something in the same space as you. The target gains all the benefits and detriments that the Terrain provides.
