When a figure leaps over other figures (for example the torch bearer or the shadow runner), does the jump have to be in a straight direction over the figures or can I jump "around the corner" over them?

Judging from the wording in the German rulebook, it states "[...] may perform one movement or attack over [...]", so I would go with a straight line, because otherwise, I would no longer consider it one movement or attack only, but rather several ones.
The English rulebook, however, does not allow this conclusion.

I am interested in the designer's opinion on this.

One of the designer explained the game to us in Essen, and I thought that in his examples he leaped over figures doing also corner jumps. But I am not sure anymore.

Hi Markus,

Thanks for your Question. The Torch Barear can move or attack over the creatures from Level 1,2 and 6. Just them. No other Levels. And yes he can do it also over corners. For a better imagination, think its something like a road

and don't forget to remove all the creatures back to your reserve which you jumped over.

Best regards and a good game
Bujar

Thx very much for your reply. The game is awesome so far!
And when a shadow runner moves or attacks over another shadow runner, can he also make corner jumps?

Thx, its a honor to hear that.

A shadowrunner can move or attack just straight through ONE other own shadowrunner.

And don't forget, if you did it, you get an extra movement or attack!

Best wishes
Bujar

Wait, now I am confused. In the manual it says, you only get the extra action when you go over the side boarder, not for just jumping over another shadow runner. (But that they can be combined)
