Hello, I have a question about movement in diagonal.After the FAQ we unterstood thet the wall corners beeing black , you can't pass through them .Ex image 1
\Is this a valid move action.

Because after our rules in Castle Darion Quest the OL put a shadow dragon in front of our party an we remained there for the duration of his peasent slaughter.


My question is could we move pass the dragon?

You can move past the dragon. The FAQ clarified that spaces that are orthogonally adjacent graphically, but separated by a wall, were not adjacent. Like the space with the red corn-token and the one directly above it.
Diagonally adjacent, as in your example: yes, they are adjacent.

Note that, if everything were shifted one square to the left in your second picture, the dragon would be completely in the way. Also, the dragon could turn sideways, still be able to attack the heroes, and block up one of the two paths out (in your example, it could expand downwards, forcing the heroes to go through two water squares to get past it - not completely impassable, but slowing them down quite a bit).

But yes, the heroes can move diagonally around corners just fine.
