David in Sydney (now in Coffs)
Activated the objective an moved soldier in...did a draw...but the card is higher then the amount allowed do to the amount of my resource points...Do I discard it an there ends up being NO initial enemies in this objective?
When you place a location or activate the Objective the sum total of Hostile value you draw is to equal or greater.
eg if the value for the Objective "Observation Post"
the hostiles are
So if the mission RPs are 50-74 then the Hostile value at activation is 4. So you draw hostile cards to the value of 4 or greater when you activate the Objective.
If the mission was 29- then the Hostile value at activation is 2, so if you draw a Sniper (Value 3) you would still place it.
Even if the mission (etc) reduced the Objectives Hostile Value to 0 or less you would still draw a Hostile card at activation.
It is differed..
When it comes to drawing Reinforcements then the Hostile card value must equal the Rein: value (or range of values - eg Rein 0 & 5-6 means any Hostile card of value 0, 5 or 6 would be placed).
Does that help?
