Just a quick question. I might have misunderstood something in the rules about when you encounter a lieutenant in SoB. It says in the rules that you use the lieutenants card instead of an encounter card. Where does that leave the lieutenant when it comes to ships? I dont find anything about which ship they use. I guess they must have a ship? Wherelse would you place all your minions.
Thanks for all your time and help.
The only Lt with a ship is the Ghost Ship (any Avatar, Gold level only) which has no figures IIRC and whose rules are on pg30 (basically its just an empty ship with self manning stations).
Other Lts simply don't use a ship. They all either Swim or Fly anyway.
The Lts and their monsters (who also all either swim or fly, if they have any) are placed on the board in accordance with the (encounter) monster setup rules on pg17
After the heroes are placed on the map, the overlord places the leader and his minions on the map. Figures without the Soar or Swim abilities must be placed on the NPC ship. Figures with the Soar or Swim abilities may be placed along any edge of the ocean map, but they must be at least five spaces away from the heroes’ ship. Large monsters must be placed completely on the map.
