Hello, we've encountered this question for our first game yesterday.

During a battle, we wondered what would happen with Trog prisoners after the battle.

It can becomne a big deal if you actually can take them since a player would score 1VP for each trog captured, and since there is no Trog player, no one can pay them back since the rules explicitely states that Neutral Trogs gain no VP and without them you can't get back your prisoners.

Is this how it works?

Still true. In 2-3 player games, Trog prisoners are permanent.

It does feel special, as a gamer, to have an answer from the designer of the game...really!

Thanks alot for this.


The answer has a huge impact on how important the "take prisoner" battle objective vs trogs is, in 2-3 player games, as the player who plays trog must be careful not to let that happen too much.
