Is it just me or does this game seem to come with WAY too many wound cards? I have only played the intro scenario so far, but at the end of that I had two wounds and my friend had zero. When you pull out that stack of cards it seems kind of silly to have more wounds than spells and artifacts. I suppose in a four player game it's possible for each player to get up to 10 wound cards... but you might be doing it wrong if that's the case!

Am I way off base or does anyone else wish there were a few more action cards instead?

I got WAY more wounds in the Solo Conquest scenario than in the intro scenario. While there are probably still more than needed, I can see in a 4 player long scenario that you could conceivably use a lot of them.

At the end of round 5 in my game the other day, I had 22 wounds in my deck.

I dont think it is as simple as "print 8 less wound cards so you can make 8 more different action cards"

Youch! How did you manage to discard that many in one round?

I didn't

I actually spent all of the 6th round sat in a monastery, using my +5 reputation to get lots of healing. I still ended the game with 11 in my deck.
