i had my first encounter with the Phoenix today and appareantly beat him. While fighting the phoenix it seemed to me that i unintentionally cheated.... Therefore i have a few questions interpreting his actions. Since this question does contain some information on the AI cards I say SPOILER INCOMING...
Spoiler (click to reveal)
A lot of the AI cards of the Phoenix say Target "Last Threat to wound..." when trying to determine who to attack. Directly after that it usually says as the 2nd option "perform his instinct (forogt it's name)". Now, since this has been on all of his AI cards I drew, he never really attacked me with his attacks because he never did make a wound to someone. The only thing he did was dealing brain damage to everyone (Spiral age, or Hit location reactions). The questions now is, does brain damage also count as a wound? If so, since all survivors did get hit by brain damage, can I then choose which of them he will attack, in case of tie in terms of distance to the phoenix?
On this way i'd like to thank the whole community on here for their contributions on KDM. These forums have been a treasure while waiting for this jewel of a game
