Hero Action. Flight from the Fortress

Postby Roke » Wed Jul 26, 2017 12:05 pm

The adventure card "Flight from the Fortress" in Ship of Lost Souls' adventure "Rietholtz's Treasure", says:
Failure: You suffer a number of attacks equal to the current number of opponents (incl. leader). Each attack causes [damage].
Exactly how is this applied?
Does this mean 1 [Damage] per attack? Or does this mean to roll damage for each opponent's attack? Which of their attacks?

This one I was never able to get clarification on from the German team. I will try to get a more definitive answer soon.

From a design perspective, no villain attack ever does static damage. They are always rolled. (Life point losses might be static, but not attack damage.) The lowest damage available is 1D6, so that is the way I would rule each of these attacks.

This card is supposed to be harsh because it is one of the ways you can just outright win the scenario. 1D6 per attack against an already fairly dodgy hero seems right.

I'm a little bit confused.

The German card just says:

Heros + 1 adventure marks

You can try as often as you like.

Costs 4 endurance -> do a dodge throw -2 (as long as Rietholtz is there -4)

Sucess: -1 adventure mark

Fail: You lose 1D6 lifepoints

Wow, it changed completely. That's probably why some details got left off.

I will follow up on this.

So apparently what happened is that it changed just before the German version, but the English translator didn't get the update. So here's what the English version should look like. (Feel free to spread this around the BGG forum as well.)
