The Butcher character has the Permanent skill: perform a close combat attack when visible.

Does that mean that he can kill every enemy (up to 15) on his tile when he is visible without usage of an action(point)?

I admit the wording of some abilities is vague. My understanding is it simply means that he isn't required to be Stealthy to perform the basic action "perform a close combat attack".

If the ability would be free (not costing an action) it would be marked as "0A", not "P" if that's of any help.

OK, I know what you mean but on the other side of the characters card this skill will cost 1 AP...
By your understanding the result will be the same:
Permanent skill + basic action = 1 AP
Special skill = 1 AP
Why use different skill AP's?

Thanks for this feedback, this is a missprint, and I am sorry about that. The butcher can perform close combat attacks even when visible but he has to spend 1 action per attack, 1 attack kills 1 enemy (like any close combat attack).

Thibaud, no problem, just start reprinting your game Use KickStarter again if neccesarry. After playing yesterday night I allready regret not buying more copies. This game rocks and will be worth a lot on the aftermarket if no reprints are comming. thumbsup
