Hi,
Just got the game, and I have some questions about Ranged Attack. It's not clear to me:

1. Is it a special Character activation attack, not a normal Army attack?

2. Is is unmodified, that is, rather than being a Combat event and modified by using cards, is it a special attack in which you roll the number of dice available. If I have x4 archers in range, I roll x4 dice, etc.

3. OR, can it be modified by cards? And after the Shadow player takes damage, can they play a card to remove tokens like they can in Combat?

Thanks!

1. Correct.

2. Correct.

3. No. Being outside of combat, it cannot be mitigated by Combat cards. However, other abilities, such as Bolg's Bodyguards, may be applied if they are relevant.
