Please bear with me if the following questions are trivial
1. The figures on the board at the end of an age, if not destroyed by ragnarok, continue to stay for the next age right ?
2. If the answer to the above question is yes, then can a player start a pillage at the very beginning of the next age with his existing figure(s).. including in yggrasil ?
3. Can you choose not to play a battle card while in a combat, even if you have any ? (because you are so confident on your victory)
Thank you !!!
The answer to #3 is no. You have to play a card of some sort (if you have one), but it doesn't have to be a battle card. It can be a quest card, which is meaningless in a fight, but you have to play one regardless. This is important because the text on your opponent's card may cause you to discard your card, preventing you from using it in subsequent turns, even if you lose the battle.
