Hey all, first post here. Ill explain my question.
The other day me and 2 friends were playing Talisman, eventually the Reaper landed on me, and I rolled a 1 on a dice which if i do it says on the reaper card:
- 'It is time.' Lose all lives, you are killed.
I thought to myself, "Oh this sucks." Everyone laughed at me ofcourse.
Then I remembered I had this spell card Restoration: "Cast as required, on any character or Follower, to prevent a character from losing a life or a Follower from being killed."
So I used it, but one of my mates who wanted me dead started arguing saying like "You cant use that, the reaper killed you", I said: "Why wouldn't I be able to? It says on the spell card that it will PREVENT ONE LIFE from being lost, and on the Grim reapers card it basically says "Lose all lives>you are killed(because you lost all your lives)"" But I PREVENTED ONE LIFE from being harmed, so I survived? it doesnt say anywhere in the rule book anything about this, we started arguing like crazy, my mate said "The reaper killed you man, you cant do anything" I continued to argue: "No, He took all my lives which led to my death, but I prevented one of my lifes from being lost, so I survived" We decided to make a post on this forum to get it settled, but it was down at that moment.
So, dear talisman players, what do you guys think about all this? to me it only sounds the most logical that I could use the spell card to prevent the loss of one life.(Please read the post carefully to fully understand both point of views)
