Chapter 4 is unclear regarding the initiative track order when the split occurs.

When entering the King's Chamber, a spider is added to the bottom of the initiative track. However, when Nez's team splits off, you draw an Encounter card.

With that being said, do we shuffle up everything since an Encounter card has been drawn or do we lock in the Spider at the bottom of the track?

PS: I'm working on Google Doc that compiles all of the FAQ information (using the FAQ attached to this BGG page as the basis). If anyone is interested in helping, please send me a GM.

You only shuffle and re-deal the initiative track when there are no minion cards on the initiative track and then one or more minions are added. If there are any minions on the initiative track when the new minions are added, those minions are added to the bottom of the track and the rest of the cards stay in place.

Read to me like so (based on german storybook):

- When the last rat hits the floor, you immediately "cutscene-like" place mice at the explorable spaces. Don't change last initiative order. (So get your searching in during the fight, you gonna leave the room)

- Active turn switches to Colin, regardless whose turn it was before. Colin must explore out to King's chamber.

- Kings Chamber spawns a spider, with instructions to not reshuffle initiative, only place its ini card at the bottom of track. (even though no minions are out)

- (turns of other members of Colin's group, if any have one here)

- First member of Nez' group (not necessarily Nez) whose turn comes up must explore out to Crystal tunnels.

- Draw encounter card for Crystal tunnel, but since minions are out (Spider @ Colin) also place ini cards at bottom of track.

We did exactly as Jan describes, which meant that the only time the initiative track was reshuffled, was at the very end, when both groups entered the Forge simultaneously. Otherwise there were monsters on the track at all other times. Colins team was much faster and spend several turns just sitting idle in the room with the water currents.
