I'm playing as a Basic II OL against a party containing a Runemaster.
The Rune mastery skill reads:
"When you attack with a rune weapon, you may exhaust this card to add 1 surge to the results."
Uncontrolled power reads:
"Play this card on a hero after rolling dice. He tests willpower. If he fails, you choose how he spends his surge results..."
The heroes argue that I must play uncontrolled power immediately after dice are rolled, and after that point, the runemaster may decide whether or not to exhaust rune mastery until the time the attack is completed (when damage is calculated.)
I (not surprisingly) disagree. My thought is that rune mastery must be played before surges are spent- it affects the attack results, and I can wait to see those results before deciding to play uncontrolled power.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated. If this has not been addressed before, I can submit it directly to FFG. Thanks!
