Internal threats are activated then external threats are activated from top to bottom, left to right.
Let me show an example in which I need some clarification based on your answer. Am I correct in the following situation?
I have these threat cards in play:
- Mercenary (Internal, activates if no threats activated this round)
- Space Pirates (3 health, activates on roll '1' and '3')
I draw Raiders (2 health, activates on roll '1' and '4')
I roll a '5'
Mercenary's ability is checked first (since it is internal) but it waits to resolve until all other threat cards are checked.
The activation order should be Mercenary -> Space Pirates -> Raiders
Let's say I cause 1 damage to the Space Pirates in my next round.
Does it go down at the right side of the Raiders? (Even if it is the older threat?)
Will the activation order be Mercenary -> Raiders -> Space Pirates?
