Couple of quick things:

No default way to spend fatigue on attacks. You can spend a surge to regain a fatigue.
Players simply select heroes. No duplicate classes, but you can have a duplicate archetype. Not sure I like this - I'm afraid each player will eventually settle on a favorite and I'll not see about 40 of the heroes ever played. Especially concerning if the promo heroes are still more powerful.
Large monster movement is odd - they shrink to one square for movement then regrow at the end. They just have to contain the start and end square. It can give them some extra movement-the picture in the example makes this more clear.
Overlord gets an extra card whenever a hero is dropped.

I'll try the hero selection as written at first. But if I decide I want more variety, may modify the RtL selection system. I'm thinking something like "sort the heroes by archetype, have each player draw three from the archetype of their choice at random and choose one." That way they get to play the type of character they want but we get to see some mixups in the lineup.

Yep, for some reason all the other threads don't show up unless I refresh the forum display.

I thought it was odd that it was the next morning and no one had said anything. Now I've found them.laugh
