Sorry if this question has already been answerd elswhere, but there are so many threads in the rule section here


Supposing I`ve got two species, a carnivore (A) and another, smaller one (B).

If A had the trait card "Warning Call" too, would it protect B from its own attack?
(Provided it doesn`t have "Ambush" as well of course.)

Obviously that wouldn`t make any sense at all in nature, but this situation came up in my very first game today.

Liked it very much by the way

Mechanically, yes it would. You're right, in nature it wouldn't make any sense, but in terms of game play that's how this one works.

I agree with Thud - the action disagrees with the theme, but mechanically that's a legal placement.

I picture a Raptor squealing, just to be a dick, as another one is poised to make a kill and the prey runs away.

Thematically, that just means your Carnivore is too loud for it's own good.
