Hi there!

I am hoping you can clarify something for me.

The starting location allows you to spend time to gain knowledge or health.

If i want to buy 3 knowledge, i assume i would need to spend a total of 6 hours.

1 for the turn + 1 for the knowledge.

Then repeat three times.

Am i interpreting this correctly?

S

it is strength or health

spend 6 hours for 3 points of health (2 hour per 1 health)
spend 3 hours for 3 points of strength (1 hour per 1 strength)

yes you are right in the repeat. knowledge must be gained elsewhere.

Just to be totally clear:
If I wanted to gain 3 strength, it would take me three turns (spending 3 hours) and I would have to spend 1 hour each turn, for a total of 6 hours.
And if I wanted to gain 3 health, I would have to spend 3 hours on turns + 6 hours on the healing, for a total of 9 hours.

Is this correct?

I'd also like to know the answer to this. I have been playing that you just add an additional hour for the turn to the total number of hours you are spending.

For example, on the Librarie Cilenia card you can gain +1 knowledge for every hour you spend. So ...

To gain 1 knowledge on 1 turn would cost 2 hours.
To gain 2 knowledge on 1 turn would cost 3 hours.
To gain 3 knowledge on 1 turn would cost 4 hours.
To gain n knowledge on 1 turn would cost n+1 hours.


Excellent little game by the way.

I agree that that makes sense thematically, but I think the rules say you can only activate a location once per turn. And that you lose an hour each turn, even if you don't move. So.. confusing!

if you want to gain extra 3 strength then you need to spend 3 hours plus the hour spent on the card.

the time spent moving to a card is added in after you are done with whatever is on the card.


so it happens like this:

turn begins
i move to the Society Hall card
i spend 3 hours to gain 3 Strength (i've done an action on this card)
i then subtract 1 more hour for the movement on to the card.
turn ends

exactly. again the movement (or staying in place for a turn) part of the game happens after resolving the event/action on the card

yes you activate a location once per turn but you can use as much of that ability/action/activation as you wish while there.


in terms of the Librarie Cilenia card

the action is gaining knowledge, as much as you want to spend time for, it is not gaining 1 unit of knowledge and then you are done.
