Since the Torchbearer shipped with Wave 1, is there any way that we can find out his rules if we want to include him in our games prior to Wave 2 shipping out? Has any information about him come out and I just missed it?

I hope Brian won't be mad at me for this revelation.

the Torchbearer

Unique - Follower (he is a follower so he does not attack)

Flame of Heroes: Bonuses apply to all those on the same Realm tile.

Heroes receive -1TN to Courage tests.

Heroes receive -1TN to disarm Traps.

Maximum Treasure per Realm tile is increased by +1.

All Merchants carry a random green Treasure.

Sacrifice: If a Hero dies when the Torchbearer is in the party, the Torchbearer sacrifices his life so that the dying Hero might live. The Torchbearer can do this from anywhere on a Realm tile. The Hero returns with half Vitality, rounded up.

Movement: MP equal the highest movement used by the Heroes including Move cards.

Enjoy

And since he's on the board, can he be attacked? How much HP? How much threat?

I would say if you actually have the mini, you get to use it. It IS our reward for kickstarting the game after all.

I daresay he costs serendipity to bring out, just like any other ally. You could conceivably argue that he is already allied if you own him, and doesn't require a quest to earn his loyalty.

That was the impression I got, anyhow.

Was I supposed to get a card for this?
I can't find his rules in any of the printed materials I received.

No. There is no official card for this figure at this time. I put one together based on what was stated in KS comments and general BGG feedback. I anticipate the official card will be part of next patch.

Here's a link to the community card.
