Okay so Wrath and at least one of the heroes has a special ability that uses the keyword teleport. The rules have two sentences to clarify Teleport stating that all movement rules are broken and addressing movie monsters away from heroes and heroes away from monsters. The wording of these abilities where they state things like one space away have been the point of munch contention in my groups. As I read Teleport breaks all movement rules I take it that you can move one figure from one space to any other space on the board but the abilities stating one space or one space away have people suggesting that you can only move them adjacent. What are your opinions? Sorry I don't have the exact wording I'm at work and the game is not directly in front of me.

If it says "Teleport them 1 space," which I believe is what you're asking about, you can--franky, teleport them 1 space away. It uses the term Teleport to clarify that the normal movement restrictions don't apply. The 1 space (or 2) away then limits the range.

Correct.

I believe that Teleport is also used to remove movement limitations like the monster is pinned so it cannot move. Heroes can use teleport to evade corruption and fire checks because they are not moving through the zone.

Can you teleport across a river?

Don't think so. The rules state "The empty spaces between these tiles are considered to be rivers, and therefore there’s no adjacency between the separate tiles." So it doesn't fulfil the "1 space away" condition.

That seems to be a reasonable assessment. Thanks
