I only broswed the rules, sorry if these questions has been answered before.
What happens when you die?
Do you have to start over?
Also: It seems to me that death is pretty inevitable, either due to stupid mistakes or running out of actions and then drawing a curse. Can any of this be avoided due to proper planning and careful play? Or do you just have to accept that many many hours of gameplay can simply be in vain?
"Victor’s prodigious intelligence allows him to keep an additional Idea card in hand and, if he discards a card with the “will” keyword, he can go and retrieve one of his special Idea cards from the Action Deck!
One of these ideas allows him to keep the group alive should it ever succumb to the curse(s). There’s a heavy price to pay however: One of the other adventurers will come back slightly… changed and Victor will have the possibility, via his Idea cards, to influence their actions!"
