Hey guys,

I've been having a tough time tracking down a copy of A Prophecy of Dragons, but have a copy of Under the Mask.

Without spoilers, please, would it be okay to play Under the Mask now (We've just finished Marcy Case and had done Asylum prior to that.)

Thanks.

Yes.
Some claim that you will miss a bit, but I say it's not really a problem

I say it's ok, but you will not understand some things.

If you are really interessted I'll give you the important information which you would learn at the base and in the first location of APoD.

I should say that I absolutely WILL one day get A Prophecy of Dragons when I see it available again, it just seems to be out of stock everywhere at the moment.

I just looked at the base cards for Under the Mask and it says...

Spoiler (click to reveal)
You didn't do too well last time out...

So I'm assuming I need to know what happened to understand what is going on there.

We did, and there was one or two tiny obscure lines, but I didn't feel like we were really missing anything.

Still haven't played Prophecy of Dragons because one of the group just had a child and they asked to wait a couple months...

That's just a generic line, you'll be fine to skip APoD.

Thank you. I think we'll go for it and play APoD when we get a copy.
