Why were we not in the movie?
mbmbmbmbmb
Many of you already know the Custodian/Targa Pylon set adds standard Threat cards which can place Targa Pylons in the Mines. I'm wondering why they would be there. Any theories?

Thanks

Custodians of Targa explains it - any Custodians in the mines start to Targafy the mines by doing things like adding pylons

Placed there by the Ancient Targans to guard the gates leading to their world?

Ah! Max is right. I just went back and read the intro flavor text to the Custodians and it's right there. Philip provides a good theory as to why the Custodians would do it. Thanks.

But if you really didn't like the idea of pylons in the mine, you could just leave the card out of your threat deck, making them a 'Targa Exclusive'.

Perhaps it is because I am new to Shadows of Brimstone, but I did not realize there was a verb form of the word 'Targa'.

I thought the only Mine Threat cards with pylons also comes with custodians, right? So that should explain things neatly enough.

It's kinda cool in that it opens up some opportunities for quick custom mini-adventures.

Based off of your last visit through the gate to Targa (plot device based on success or failure etc), maybe the Targa custodians followed your trail back through the the gate, and while you are drinking at the local saloon, they are steadily taking over the mine. If you are playing any sort of campaign style set up, the extent may depend on how long your town stay is.

Now you have another mission, to deal with the threat and blow up the gate or something.

Fun stuff

It took me a while to find a decent version of this, but here you go robwrigley, this one's for you.

I did SO think of this, but I was too late to answer - sorry!
In German it's even nicer (IMHO) - roughly "Verbing skurrilifies language"...
