Says in a tie, both player and villain go back to their respective start areas and in an outright win, the loser goes back to their respective start area, but what about if the villain wins? Does it stay on that location mat or does it go back to its starting area? I assume the player would stay on that location mat but wasn't sure about the villain.
If the Villain and Player tie, they both return to their starting area. Otherwise (unless the ability says otherwise) the loser heads home and the winner stays. So if you are fighting the Villain at the Cabins for instance, and you lose the Single Combat Round, you go to the Player Starting Area and the Villain remains at the Cabins.
