What is the purpose of fatigue aside from not being able to use certain abilities during a hunt. Furthermore, why would you not send every hunter into a hunt every time? It seems the more hunters you send in, the better chance you have of defeating a bad guy. Therefore, why would you send in less? Thanks!!

Hunting fatigues the hunter. A hunter who is fatigued cannot hunt or use a fatigue ability that turn. So fatigue has two effects: it lets you use the hunter for hunting OR their fatigue ability; and it limits the use of each fatigue ability to once per turn.

To get more nuanced, notice that a fatigue ability can be used more than once per round in some cases. For instance you could use a warlock's potion to take another turn and re-use a fatigue ability in a single round. Or you could use the paladin's fatigue ability to unfatigue another hunter and use that hunter's fatigue ability a second time. Contrast that to a once per round ability, which can never be used more than once per round BUT which does not prevent the hunter from hunting that turn or using a different ability requiring fatigue.

Hunters who go on a hunt are fatigued, so if they have a fatigue ability you can't use it that turn. (for example, you couldn't use the thief on a hunt and then fatigue him to steal a gold from an opponent. Stealing the gold might be more important to you than having him on the hunt.)

The more common reason is that you don't want that hunter to die. If the party is defeated by the Dark Agent, a hunter is selected for death amongst the hunters who went on that hunt. A hunter might be too important to you to risk killing them in this way. This is especially true if that hunter didn't contribute anything to the hunt. Only fighting skills can make the difference between winning and losing against a dark agent. Other than that you only need one guiding skill and one seeking skill. For instance, if you're going hunting in the Darkwoods with knowledge, sending the Princess along with her Palace and Bait skills isn't going to add anything to that hunt, but if she goes along she might die. So it's potentially risk without reward.

And to go into advanced territory again, you might not want to win. Going on a hunt you can't win with just your hero and one other hunter is a great way to kill off a hunter you otherwise can't afford to disband

I don't understand what that means. Are you saying when i declare the hunters for the hunt, they can not use the fighting abilities to kill the dark agent?

Before declaring a Hunt, you must fatigue all Hunters that you want to participate in the Hunt. A Hunter can not participate in a Hunt if you are unable to fatigue it (such as if the Hunter is already fatigued).

You may only declare skills (for the purposes of thwarting) if at least one Hunter is participating that has the appropriate skill (whether printed on the card, or granted by an item or ability). All Hunters participating in the Hunt will contribute their Fighting skills for the purposes of defeating a Dark Agent or the Shadow, regardless of which Fighting skill you declared to go on the Hunt.

Yeah, fatigue is only relevant in a couple of ways, in general:
colonist A fatigued hunter can't go on a hunt.
colonist A fatigued hunter can't use a fatigue ability.

In other words, a tired hunter is too tired to do anything that would make her tired.
