So me and my group are going through our first campaign and of course some questions have been coming up. We're headed into the last quest from the 1st act and it's probably going to be Death on the Wing.
Upon reading the 2nd encounter tho, there's a detail that seems odd. The rules about the guards say: Treat them as hero figures with the following exceptions: they cannot recover health, are immune to conditions and pass every attribute test. Each guard on the same tile as either a hero or a monster activates at the end of the last hero turn each round... and then some other details.
So the issue I see here is that the OL can simply pick a ranged group for the waterfall area and camp them at the entrance of the Gatehouse tile and shoot the guards without them ever activating, is that right? Is this intended?
Or does the fact that they are treated has hero figures also triggers the rule that lets them activate with a hero on the same tile?
