Simple question on how to calculate the Dahan+4.

Does each hut have 2+4=6 defense now? or all combined+4?

Simple example: 1 land with 4 Dahan, 1 city, 1 town, 4 explorers.

How to resolve ?

There is a total of 9 damage in this ravage. One Dahan takes 6, and is removed. Another Dahan takes 3, and is still alive. Dahan counter attack for 2 damage each.

Aha! So every Dahan has 6 defense.
Thx so much for the quick answer!

If I may nitpick for a moment, the Dahan have health, not defense.

Normally I would ignore terminology things like this, except defense provided by spirit powers protects the Dahan and the land, but Dahan don't protect the land by being present, so the distinction is important.

Of course, Infinite Vitality protects the land itself, but understanding that the Dahan don't provide defense is important for normal Ravages.

I wonder if this is an issue with back-translating from German? Maybe we need a FAQ page with German-English equivalents.

Good point!
The german card actually says +4 "Abwehrkraft" which would translate into "Defense strength". EDIT:mThis isnt commonly used as a keyword in the game. The keyword in the german rulebook for Dahan "Health" as you describe it , is "Abwehrkraft" ! I had missed that
That probably is where my initial confusiong came from because I had another card in combination that had "Verteidgen 5 " (defend for 5). I knew how that card worked. but didnt know how to add all together.
