I just received the german copy of both the base game and downwood tales and I am a little bite confused about the cards.

In the base game I have Maginos with

For Lily I also received a new initiative card with downwood tales, with the difference that all versions show the stats to be


The initiative cards show a little "3" on the bottom right, stating that they belong to the expansion. I did not receive additional cards for the other old heroes. I noticed however that the newer cards show a bow and arrow for the attack value rather than the sword on the old cards. However, I am confused with the change of the attack value of Maginos. Are there cards missing? Which ones should I use? Also, it feels a little odd using the new Maginos initiative card with the hero board showing the old attack value.

In Downwood Tales, sometimes you can use mice as "allies".
This means they are not fully part of the group, but they 'play support' using only the stats on their initiative card (no bonuses or abilities).

To this end, Lily and Maginos got extra cards to indicate that they are ranged figures (the bow icon) when used as an ally.
Maginos' extra card also got attack 2, because they still take his +1 staff bonus into account.

Whenever you play them as normal though, just use the original initiative cards.
