The expansion introduces the 7/8 gate toughness spaces, but I don't see it written in the rules anywhere that the gates' starting toughness changes from 6, so the 7 and 8 spaces could only be for using the gate reinforce action on an undamaged gate. Do the gates start with 6 or 8 health?

The Gate starts at Strength 8. In the original printing of Stronghold, the Gate strength was 8. However, with the VG reprint, they adjusted the strength to 6 to balance out the Battering Ram (which was pointless with an 8 Strength Gate). However, to make Stronghold: Undead compatible with both printings of the game, they included the token to make the Gate Strength 8 for the VG base game. That way, no matter which printing you have, the Stronghold: Undead starting Gate Strength can be 8 (since the battering rams are not used in Undead, the strength 8 gate is needed for the mechanics of this game).
