1. No, not by companions. "Corruption" refers to the corruption points you take. "Hunt damage" may be taken as companion casualty or corruption. I get it. So in the other hand, for "Orc Patrol" which lets you follow the rules for a succesfull hunt, you could reduce the damage with a card or a companion sacrifice. Yes?
2. You can use Shadows Gather to move into a region that you are besieging. If you're besieging a region, that region is considered "free" for you, which means yours for all purposes (except the VPs of course).My question arises from the parenthesis on the card which says: "The movement must end in a region already ocuppied by another Shadow Army(that must not be under siege)". So I guess the parenthesis refers to the Army not being under siege. I was interpreting the parenthesis refering to the region not being under siege.
FP must declare using Gandalf's ability before combat cards are played.Ok. Thanks.
