Hi all,

Imagine I play Conan and I'm in an area with two Bossonian Guards. I want to wreck an adjacent wall.

The french rule stipulates that wall wreck is a 2 additional cost, but the english rule present wall wreck as a "cost".

Should I pay 2 extra movement points for hindrance + 2 extra movements for the wall wreck skill + 1 for the movement itself?

Screws fall out all the time. The world is an imperfect place.

That's how our group was reading/interpreting it. It makes sense based on other examples in the rules. There is a base cost to move from one zone to another, that can be modified by the presence of enemy units, physical obstacles, etc.

I really can't wait for the clarified rules to be released...

i think the best way to think of Wall Wrecker is that it modifies an in-progress movement action. With that interpretation movement hindrance must be observed.

Thanks!

Can we extend this reasoning to swimming, flying, and climbing?
It seems that flying is affected by hindering, only in english. In french it is not.

In the french new version of the rules, we have this sentence:
" Les deux zones deviennent adjacentes sans pénalité de mouvement pour passer de l’une à l’autre"

Which means: "Both zones become adjacent without any movement penalty to move from one to the other."

So... no hindrance? Or hindrance is not a "movement penalty"? I'm lost once more.

i don't (spontaneously) see why not, with the caveat that climbing is defined as having scenario-specific effects.

My own rule of thumb (lacking official rules clarifications) is that any skill categorized as a Movement Skill changes how normal Movement is applied. Normally that also implies hindrance, but flying may be a slight exception, as you point out...

French is the native language of the game, so if French doesn't hinder flying then that's the official rule.

Not hindering flyers' movement makes thematic sense to me.
