We had a situation playing today, which I have not come across before and caused some confusion in the group.
In the base set, with Nurgles cultist upgrade in play, how does this interact with Tzeentch's Temporal stasis.
I know normally the negative effect wins over the positive effect, but its not clear if temporal stasis is a negative effect.
So does the leper cost 0 to place, and the card increases this to 2, or does the leper still cost 0 to place?
The cost to place is 0 with Nurgle's upgrade. Temporal Stasis increases this by 2. Therefore, Nurgle has to pay 2 to place his Cultist to that region if he has no other figures there.
No different than he normally pays 1 to place a Leper and TS would increase that to 3.
Also as a design note, because the cost is "zero" as opposed to "no cost" is so that you can mathematically add 2 to it. So 0+2 = 2 where as nothing + 2 equals nothing still.
