Good gravy, this sounds fun...thanks a bunch Sven.
The quest system actually feels like a quest system...nice


Correct me if I am wrong, but isnt Origins going on right now?! Arent people playing this there or at least seeing it being played, not to mention that Germany is now playing it, and nothing from anybody. What in the hell is Blizzard/FFG waiting on? Lets get this thing rolling for crying out loud!

Kudos to you Sven. If I had any GG, I would let you have a couple coins just for all the info you have provided over the last couple of days.

Aggro usually means an area around your character that will draw the enemy in. Also higher your Aggro the more the enemy will concentrate on you if you are fighting as a party.

I'm guessing, in the context of this game, it means that you can't just sneak by without encountering the opponent...

Of course, if FFG were to post the rules, we'd know for sure...

aggro : indeed it means you can't leave the area unless you defeat the encounter, that can be very nasty, as a lot of the encounters have AGGRO, also quite some ability cards have AGGRO like the traps cards...

Damnit, your pictures are getting deleted as fast as they are going up! You can guess someone at FFG is probably monitoring this site and calling Aldie minute by minute to have them pulled. angry

Grab them quick boys before the Internet Police remove them!

Almost all pictures are declined by the admins... It is hard to get pictures that get approved...

If anyone is interested in some pictures, just let me know, I'll send them through mail, if anyone wants to crop / adjust colors, put less cards on the pictures, feel free :-)

Can you explain what a "discovery" is and also how encounters are drawn or placed on the board?

After your movement phase, one of the options (besides using potions, taking a flightpath, etc) is to draw a discovery tile, look at it, and place it somewhere on the board... Good one you probably want to place in your neigborhood, while the bad ones you drop near your opponents...

Abilities allow you to discard those tiles and replace them by a new drawn tile...

I have posted some more details about those tiles in another post (there are bombs, penalties for battling, (12 bad red tiles 2 x 6 different ones, and 12 good green tiles )
