Given Short Blade Mastery, Crow can auto defeat the following encounters

- Totem of Fury
- The Hunter
- BloodThirsty Pack
- Mutating Mist (Edit 1)

4/6 of the intro encounters.

This isn't right.


Perhaps there are even more encounters ... I will add them with edits as I find them.

Yeah, this does seem pretty cheap. The dagger can be repeatedly used to launch multiple attacks. There is a focus cost associated with repeatedly using abilities, but that is the only cost (besides 3 resolve that is easy to get by traditional means). As long as an enemy doesn't have 2 armor, you can kill anything with your fully automatic stabbing capability. The only thing deterring you is enraging enemies in your own hero area and doing so much repeated stabbing that you move the reinforcements track all the way to the end for a -> 2 Time Track.

Dagger: H(1) Fast Action: Deal 1 damage, ->1 focus. (rest irrelevant)
Short Blade Mastery: H(1) Reflex: If you resolve any Dagger action that causes damage, +1 damage, ->1 focus.

So, you get as many 2 damage attacks as you want for 2 focus each.

There are obviously various enemies with more than 2 armor and they'd all require some thought, but there are still a ton of 1 armor enemies out there.

Is this really the designer's intent?

But the focus doesn't matter if you win the encounter. All of the encounters on the list can be won in a single Crow turn.
