The other night we played creatures for the first time and we played the last scenario. I am not sure if we played it right.
The map indicates that each side has a creature in his army "any creature" but in the special rules it indicates that the standard player also takes the rock elemental, the magic vortex landmark, the conjure token.
So the way we understood playing it is that the standard player can choose to have "any creature" in the designated area on the map "the black flag" which he chose the troll and then he can later place the magic vortex anywhere on the map (but on a country side hex) to conjure the rock elemental. As for the war council, he had to have a creature level one (for the troll only).
Did we play it right? if not how should we have played it?
The second question, if we are playing with the rock elemental only (in any scenario) do we need to have a creature level one in the war council although it is also required to have at least a level one wizard which is "conjured" when the rock elemental is conjured?
What do you think?
P.S. I already posted this question on BGG and only one member answered. He also is not sure about the answers.
