Subject: "Highest Rank"? [box 5 spoilers] rss

How is the explorer's/soldier's guild member "of highest rank" determined for the purpose of seasonal events?

Is a general check done at the time the event resolves? Does the event apply only to advisors who have already been interrogated and their rank established?

Not only is this not made clear in the rules, but our playgroup can't even agree on a way of doing it that seems to make sense.

Re: "Highest Rank"? [Mild spoilers]
JR told me it's only advisors with a visible rank written on them.


Maybe put "Box 5 spoilers" in the subject

So the event will be irrelevant a great majority of the time? Ok.

A lot was left extremely vague in the rules as written.

Could be said for just about the entire game. We have 2 boxes left to open, and the number of questions is unacceptable (Some of which are still unanswered or being discussed in other threads).

At one point I asked, completely honestly, whether Rob Daviau was a non-English speaker and the game was translated from another language.

If I was a playtester of this game (which I feel like at this point), I would have at least 2-3 pages of errors and ambiguities.

I'm not too surprised by the number of questions, but I'm pretty surprised (and fairly disappointed) that Rob hasn't been more active in providing an official FAQ/Errata.

Hang on, let me ping Rob for this. I thought I was answering a different question when I provided a previous answer.

Ok, this is from Rob after I checked with him:

"Shine the light on all guild members owned by all players when the event resoles. The highest number is the highest rank. This may expose new members of the society."

I assume we shine it so everybody can see?
