As I play through the game, questions are constantly arising. Many thanks to the folks here who answer my queries and set me straight. It is an amazing game.
Ok, Hummerhorns. Forced: After Hummerhorns engages you, deal 5 damage to a single hero you control.
Do shields come into play in this instance, thus reducing the damage received, or is it a straight 5 damage?
It will kill most any hero. Can this be true? Is there a way to avoid losing a hero this way?
After I lose a hero I generally fold the game. I don't know if I should continue, as I seem certain to lose with just 2 heroes remaining.
A similar question with Dol Guldur Orcs "When revealed: The first player chooses 1 character currently committed to a quest. Deal 2 damage to that character" Do the shield apply, thus reducing the damage?
Many thanks in advance.
