Stop it! That tickles! :P
2) Marked for Death in the Epic Quest phase. If I am the active player, what happens if I play a Marked for Death on one of my own characters before I fail an epic quest? Can I play Marked for Death on one character, and use the epic quest fail to kill another?
What he is trying to say is that There is ONLY 1 Death. If you don't play a Marked For Death card, then you may choose. If a Marked for death card is played, then the party member that it is played on MUST die.
This opens up 2 routes for strategy:
1) Play it on an Opponent's card that has a lot of FAIL POINTS attached to it, so that no more EPIC POINTS can be attached to cancel out the fail before the fail gets counted.
2) Play it on your OWN party, to block other players from deciding which one dies.
