Hey all. Playing this game Ive gotten the two weapon fighting feat. But in questioning how good it is. It says if you play two glory cards on the same encounter it does 3 colorless instead of normal damage.

Does this mean I can't use two glory cards to drop a double martial level anymore? That seems like a vast nerf to the fighters early game.

Also I guess I'll ask this here instead of separate threads. Why does the human class seem so weak? Same or less gold. Same or less starting hand. Less equipment and generally less health. People say that the human can get to their market cards quicker, but someone starting with more gold gets to their market card quicker. And all someone has to do is hold on to a basic to once theyre later game to be tied with the humans equipment pack. Which makes them stronger earlier and equal later...

Fighting Styles are Activated.
If your fighter plays {GLORY}{GLORY} then you can do either:
BLACK-BLACK *or* (3 COLORLESS)


Humans have the smallest equipment pack. With 7 cards in their deck, holding onto 3 cards each round, they can end up cycling ONLY the 4 basic cards of choice and any Market cards they have purchased. No-one else can get to moving that fast.

It doesn't say "can" though. Is this just a misprint? None of the fears give you a choice, it lists specific advantages and disadvantages. Gwf feat stats you can only play one glory a round for 2 martial damage. And as for holding cards, anyone can hold the amount of cards to catch up to that. They just have a stronger early game. Half orc holds 4 cards its the same cycle. Just a huge advantage.

There’s an overall ruling on use of Features; the individual stickers won’t mention it. It’s in the rule book. Also in the rule book, by the way, is the rule that a Feature is once once per turn unless it’s continuous/says otherwise.

p24-p25 in the rulebook.

GWF is "continuous", meaning it's always in effect. That fighting style forces you to play maximum of one GLORY per turn, and then each GLORY does BLACK/BLACK.
That's not the feature you originally asked about, which was Two Weapon Fighting, which is not continuous, and thus has to be activated.

If a Half Orc holds 4 cards, they won't be drawing any cards. You only draw if you have three or fewer cards.
