Just tried this and got utterly trashed! Entire party destroyed.

I presumed that the Venice forces are comprised of Condottiere, Gipsy, Stratiota and the Crossbowman.

Now I don't mean to complain here, but the latest updated mission has 8 enemy initial draft and 4 additional enemies every 30 mins.

The original printed mission had 4 initial enemies and 1 additional enemy every 30 mins, with a chance that no enemies arrive.

I get how the original might be too easy. I was able to kill Condottiere, and two Stratiota away pretty easily. Then when the 30 minute mark hit, Condottiere and three Stratiota returned and it was pretty much game over so I couldn't stop them all.


Luca, can you explain how this mission was 'balanced' from double the initial enemies and quadruple the secondary enemies? I hate to say it but this just feels like somebody increased the numbers without even playing the mission.

sorry Trent is our fault, we have rebalanced the number of the starting enemies but we have leftover the old time for the enemy drafts. In this new version, you have to make the enemy drafts every hour and not every 30 minutes.

Sorry for the bad-miss-correction , but I hope you could replay this mission again

Hello Luca,

I'll try to give it another whirl but I don't know when I'll have time.

Was I correct with the 4 cards I was using to draw from the Venice forces?
