Hi chaps,

I'm confused by the heroes' rewards for killing vermin. If you have some of a creature whose gold reward is "max 100", does that mean each hero can earn 100 gold maximum from that creature type, or the entire hero team? If the elf and the wizard each kill one such creature, do they end up with 100 gold each, or 100 between them?

If it's the former, that seems very odd - the same two creatures can be worth either 100 gold or 200 gold depending on whether they're killed by one or two heroes?? If it's the latter - who gets the money? (Also, if it's the latter, vermin rooms seem to offer much lower rewards than base game or Caverns rooms.)

Cheers,

- Chris

It is a 100 gold maximum per player. We just didn't want them to be worth a lot of gold and didn't want to get into 50 gold cards or 25 gold cards, etc. Usually, a player kills more than one per round as the vermin are small and die easily, so instead of a single player getting 300 gold for 3 kills, a single player just gets 100 gold.

It's just a simple way of limiting the amount of gold from the Vermin and if we just allowed it to be 100 gold for the entire party, then it would be actively penalizing players who don't kill the vermin quickly, which we didn't want.

Anyway, that was our thinking anyway. I hope that helps.
