Here is a preview of a KS-only extra, the "fire prevention specialist". He is a bit of an odd man out (in the context of the game), as his "actions" are actually the result and echo of the work he did months and years before. He has convinced people to mark fire escape routes and to install smoke exhaust systems. His special actions reflect the fruits of this work, as they allow him to move smoke and unrevealed (!) POIs on the board; the POIs are assumed to follow the escape route signs, and the smoke is drawn out by the exhaust system, both following the way to the nearest exit (opening resp. ignoring doors on their way, even using stairs if necessary but ignoring breaches and ladders, as the paths are "hard-wired" to the pre-planned routes).
This image shows examples of how he could move POIs and smoke:

Note: The POI in 2-6 needs to open the door and has double movement cost, so it would be a 6-AP-action to get the POI to 2-7).
The victim in 4-4 cannot be moved, as it has been revealed already. A POI moved outside the coordinate area is revealed (and removed, if a false alarm), but in any case cannot be moved further now. That the 4-7 POI could actually be saved by fire prevention is a specialty of this board, it is not always possible on other boards.

A "funny", in a way, but quite good as a KS extra IMHO. Think about his strengths and limitations on different boards!
