I just finishes reading the rules for Claustrophobia and it sounds pretty straight forward I'm really looking forward to playing my first game. One thing that struck me as weird was the Blessed talent says it can only be used once per scenario. Is there a way this talent can be refreshed? I haven't played yet so maybe I don't have a strong enough grasp on the game yet to realize just how powerful this talent is, but being a one time only skill seems to be a bit unimpressive to me. Can anyone shed some light on this for me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

But, seeing as you have a newuser badge, you likely did not know that.

Here is the FAQ. The red text errata is very important...

Edit after reading below: I too was caught up in FAQ mania. My bad.

Thanks for the link to the FAQ, after reading it I'm not seeing anything regarding the Blessed talent being usable more than once per game, am I missing something?

All I see is that blessed can only heal an exsisting wound and not further wounds.

I also see the correction to abilities printed in red can only be used once per threat phase (as opposed to once per game). But this wasn't what I was originally referring to, I was actually asking about the Blessing talent that the humans have access to.

Am I simply missing something?

You are correct, the blessed talent can only be used once per game. It may not seem like much but it is pretty powerful. Plus the redeemer has his gifts which you can use several times in the scenario.

Oops. No, it was me missing your actual question. I'd seen so many questions about the red text, I replied without thinking.

The Blessed talent actually is once per game.

The blessing capacity IS really powerful. Turning any exhausted fighter into a warmachine (and a fast one...) IS really useful.

Don't forget that Claustrophobia is a fast game. Lots of games are played in less than 10 turns. So having such a boost ONCE is good.
