Hi,
One of the Elisa (elf magus) cards can create a decoy. I do not remember the cards name. The decoy has wounds, defense and is the weakest hero. We are suppose to put a decoy token within her LoS. That is the easy part. However:
1. Does the decoy block movement and/or LoS?
2. Can we aid (increase it's defense with numeric cards) the decoy when it is attacked?
3. Is it affected by hero abilities and actions. For example can it be healed or has a bonus from Bastian's Shield Wall?
4. How does the decoy token look like? ;-)

Thanks.

1. Yes
2. Yes (you can aid portcullises - so basically anything that can attack or defend)
3. Yes (as above)
4. Haven't found one, so we use a marker of our choice

4. The decoy is the weakest hero, so I use the Weakest Hero token, which has no other purpose, I think (it looks like a broken chain).

I would have answered 1-3 as Joe although I am not completely sure about 1. I guess the question is whether the decoy has a physical presence or is just a virtual lure. Timo, what was the design intent?

As for 1 the logical assumption is it does block los, otherwise it would be easy for the enemy to identify it as an illusion. Whether it blocks LOS is another question, however it has 3 HP so I would say it must be solid as well otherwise the enemy would immediately reveal it is an illusion when slashing/biting it.

That is correct assumption. It is done for exactly this purpose.

That is logical... We've used a lizard miniature from Warhammer ;-)

Thank you all for answers!
