No! This is not a board game, but Stanislao Moulinsky in one of his best disguises!

You draw one of the High Council cards from the deck each time a General advances: you may choose which effect you want to have, either the immediate or the future/ongoing.
Usually the ongoing effect is better but sometimes you really need the immediate effect: deciding is up to you.

As for the Relics, each time a General advances, you roll a die: on a 5 or six, that General gains his own Relic.
Whenever a hero is on a General's location, he may try to steal that General's Relic (if previously gained) by rolling a die: on a 6 he succeeds; on a 1 or 2 the hero is discovered and suffers as many wounds as the number he rolled.
As a house rule, we limit Relics to only one in play each time: after a General gained his own, no other General may gain another until the former has been defeated or his Relic has been stolen.

I seem to remember there's a card in both decks that explains how you play with these decks.
