Aura of Sacrifice + friendly fire
~ Can the Redeemer use the Aura of Sacrifice to inflict damage on his own warriors? Barely useful I know, but triggering Belt of Explosives this way can be epic. Probably not.
I don't like the idea much. Doing this, the Redeemer would kill one of his own warriors and take at least 3, possibly 4 wounds himself. It's hard to imagine a situation coming up where this would pay off, but I don't see a rule that prevents it.
Aura of Sacrifice + Critical Hit (part 1)
~ If the Redeemer uses the Aura of Sacrifice and receives a hit after rolling the die, can the demon player use Critical Hit to cancel a Line of Action of his choice? Probably yes.
I don't like this much either, because the Demon player wasn't involved in causing the wound, but again I don't see a rule against it. Critical Hit isn't restricted to hits caused by combat.
Aura of Sacrifice + Critical Hit (part 2)
~ Considering the above is possible. If the Demon player cancels out "6", does the Redeemer start the Action phase exhausted? Probably not.
You determine whether a warrior is exhausted when placing the action dice. If the Redeemer had been exhausted he couldn't have used his Aura. Subsequent wounds taken during the turn don't exhaust a warrior until the following turn (although they may kill him). See here: Getting exhausted after the activation?
