Hi, just trying to figure out the rules before i setup the game for the first time, could use some help here. Thanks in advance.
The game strongly suggest you start with Haven's Last Stand as your first mission - it's the least complex and really good for understanding the game. The Red missions are easiest (to understand), green and blue introduce more rules so you should save them until after you are familiar with the base rules.
1.Looking at " battleground of souls " story. So when heroes rescue 2 innocents, i can summon the avatar. Where do i place it , any spot with nest token/printed spot ? Sames goes for the controller, when does it come in play ?
Any spot with a nest that doesn't have another monster. Or if 2 nests then 2 monsters etc.
2.If the avatar and/or Controller are killed, i dont get them back on the board during the "summon monsters" step i guess ,correct ?
No, They count as figures that can go back unless they have rules that they are removed from the game (e.x. the hell club)
3. Mission progress - the tentacle marker on "mission progress" is moved forward when certain step of the mission is completed and heroes win if they get to the final spot.But " battleground of souls" has 3 steps , while its mission progress track has 7 spots. How exactly does that work ?
They all have more spaces then you need, once you get to 3 the heros win.
