The Grim Reaping fate card is an invoked card which gives +1d6 to combat (white sword) and +1d6 to physical wounds for one turn.

This means I add one more d6 to my combat dice (e.g. for a total of 2 in basic single combat) and keep the best result, and

if I roll high and win the combat round I add one d6 roll of extra wounds to the creature, i.e. 1+(1-6) wounds.

Is that right?

Also, if I withdraw from a lair and the random hex I end up on is a stronghold, does the guardian activate and attack?

Two great questions!

The Grim Reaping card is the most powerful combat card in the deck. When invoked, you get a bonus of +1d6 added to your CR (so, roll a 4 on 1d6 and you get +4 to your CR) and a bonus of +1d6 added to physical wounds delivered (so, roll a 5 on 1d6 and get +5 physical wounds delivered).

As for withdrawing onto a stronghold hex... Yes, the Guardian will immediately attack! But, you are still able to fight or withdraw. So, you could use the first combat phase to flee again!

Thanks Jim - I actually played it as you stated then started having doubts as the card is really powerful!

As for the guardian, I suppose if you were really unlucky with the random hex rolls you could just bounce back and forth between the lair and the stronghold, defending desperately as your life tokens drained away .
