- Do you just use one power per turn? (Or could I conceivable use an At-Will power to attack, THEN use a Daily, Then use a Utility? ALL on my Hero Phase)

- Can I win the initial scenario without defeating the opposing monsters? Meaning, just run to that spot I have to be on to End the game and it's over? Even if there's monsters left?

- Do you bring in more monsters when there's more players? I can imagine how easy Scenario One would be if Wulfgar tagged along...

If you are interested in learning how the game plays I would reccomend watching BlackBeltGaming's series on Youtube:

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL35A8580D217A8CC9&feat...

but to answer your questions briefly:

You are limited by what sort of action you are using. You can usually only do one attack, and some cards say use instead of attacking. Some cards have different times you can use them depending on the card.

You can try and run away from monsters, but you have to stop at every unexplored edge, then reveal a new tile. With each tile comes a new monster, and each newley revealed monster gets to attack you almost immediatley after it is placed. (so even if you run you will take alot of damage, and more each turn for each monster chasing you.)

each player brings in a new monster (on average) once a turn as they explore the dungeon, if they choose not to explore the suffer the encounter deck. Encounters = lots of damage for every one :-)

1. There is no limit to the number of powers you can use per turn. There is a limit to the number of attacks per turn (usually 1), and you have to use a Power (usually At-Will or Daily) when you attack.

2. You win when you satisfy the winning conditions. Does it say you have to defeat the opposing monsters?

3. None of the "rules" change with more players, so not really. A monster appears when a Hero explores. So if you're exploring every turn, then you'll get a monster every turn, regardless of the number of players.

Thanks for the quick responses, guys.

So - if stopping at the edge brings a new monster, just don't go to the edge, until the current monster is defeated. With 2 or 3 players, this seems awfully easy to do.

OR are the Encounters generally considered more difficult than the monsters?

Drizzt's encounters aren't as punishing as Ravenloft's were, but they're still no picnic. A good number of them (probably more than 50%) do at least 1 damage to every hero on the tile. It's typically better to explore than to have an encounter.

You really don't want many encounters at all, they are much worse than the monsters for the most part.

But you don't want to end up with too many monsters either; if I've got several monsters to take care of I'd rather take an encounter - I might be able to cancel it or to use it to my advantage. However if your mission is simply to escape the dungeon, then extra monsters don't matter as much since you're outrunning them.

Gah!! I see what you mean! Jr and I played Scenario 2 last night and lost!! Artemis killed me, and Jr was taken out by that danged Curse of Lolth! I swear there must be 20 of those dang cards in the Encounter Deck!! Grrrrrr... We had Artemis down to 2HP left, too!

Great game - I like a good challenge. We'll see what happens next time.
