According to Sister Agatha´s card text, Dracula loses 2 Blood whenever he uses Claws or Escape in a combat.

Question:  What happens if Dracula has 2 Blood left and he can only play Claws or Escape (example: at the beginning of a combat during daytime).


My opinion: My personal opinion is that this is the most unbalancing card in the game. If the Hunters have Sister Agatha as an ally, it will be very difficult for Dracula to win. I would limit its effect to once per combat or that Dracula would lose 1 Blood in case of using Claws or Escape.

Any comments on this one?

My answers/opinions to your questions are:

1- Dracula dies.

2- Yes, it's unbalanced.

I think your suggestion of 1 blood is a good house rule to balance the Sister out a little.

Check out the card more attentively because that's causing the issue here: Sister Agatha makes Dracula pay 2 blood for playing "Fangs" or any "Escape" card, not "Claws" and "Escape". And yes, if that 2 blood loss would drop the Count on zero or less blood he can't play that tactics card in combat.


And yes, Sister Agatha is a strong ally, if she is in play Dracula should avoid combat (or remove her with the 'Devilish Power' card).
