maybe its a silly question - but i wondering......

We like to start tomorrow Dunwich Legacy, after we finished the first campaign last week.

Now i downloaded from FFG the decklist for the new investigators, and after building all 5 decks (we have 3 core), i wondering what's going on with Dr. Armitage, he isnt in a starter deck.

Can we use him in one deck or did he enter later based on the story.

There is no information on the front page, and during setup for first scenario there is also no hint - if we should put him by side, because he is needed maybe later.

I don't have mine in front of me, but I imagine he'll show up in a later chapter.

Thx but for future how did we identify that this type (like dr. Armitage) shouldnt be used.

For me he looks like a neutral card.

You can only use level 0-5 cards, and he is none of those levels. He has a crescent where his level pips would be.

I don't have the set in front of me but if i recall correctly he has a different encounter set icon (the odd little symbols like the rat) which shows he belongs to a different group.

Confused me for quite awhile too. The key clue is that he has an encounter set icon in the upper right corner - just it's one we haven't seen before and no other cards in the box match it.

Not only does Dr. Armitage have an Encounter Set icon in the upper right corner (thus marking him as not being a player card), he also has an encounter set number on the bottom of the card listed, like all encounter sets, as X/Y, where X is the number of the card in the set, and Y is the number of cards in the set. Armitage is a 1/1, of course, because he's the only card in his set (officially, his set is named Armitage's Fate), but if you look at other Encounter Sets, you'll see they have numbers like 4/7, or 2/3, etc. Player cards, meanwhile, just have one number on the bottom, showing their position among player cards in the set, instead of an X/Y listing.

Dr Armitage is a Story Asset. Just like Lita Chantler.

We have a video which includes all types of Asset Card.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyp51oAFu-k

You can find Story Assets at 2.05 if you don’t want to watch the whole thing.

We hope you find it helpful.
