Ok i am sure someone already asked this but, in the Castle Daerion quest the villagers and militia are said to block movement and LOS, but then to treat them as hero figures, so which is it? I am guessing they just meant that since it is just a token and not a figure that like other figures would normally block movement and LOS but as a hero figure the heroes can move through them, whereas the OL monsters cant. is that correct?

Yup, that's how I read it. I think they are just trying to make sure that you know they aren't like normal tokens which don't block movement or LOS.

Another question of Villagers and Militia:

If a surviving villager (which becomes militia in the 2nd encounter) has suffered wounds, will he retain them in the militia form?

We're playing this quest right now and haven't agreed on an answer. Help!

No, why would he? He's no longer a villager, he's a new marker (a militiaman).

One could make the counterargument that since they're to be treated as hero figurines in both cases, that they should retain wounds between encounters like heroes do.

Any surviving Villagers from Encounter 1 are placed on
the Entrance tile or the closest available empty spaces.
They are now militiamen.


The text just for reference. Based on that, I could see one making the argument both ways. However, looking at the stats, the militiamen have different stats than the villagers (they have 1 more speed and have an attack), so I would argue they are different 'figures'.

Well, they have been roused, and now are better equipped for battle perhaps. I'd be fine with either interpretation, but it seems to me that if the heroes don't have the ability to heal wounds, the villagers wouldn't either.
