We had a couple of iffy questions come us during our four player game the other day. I feel we made accurate interpretations, but wanted a second opinion.
#1 Do you still get victory points for the shadow effects of cards, specifically Hummerhorns? We interpreted it as yes, since shadow cards are discarded from play and victory points are counted when a card leaves play, right?
#2 When you reshuffle the encounter deck, do the victory cards stay out? We said yes since the rules say to place them near your threat tracker instead of the discard pile.
#3 This doesn't have anything to do with victory points, but can you play events in response to encounter cards? I would think no unless the event is a response. This came up when we drew two Necromancer's Reach cards in a row during staging which would have killed half our party and stacked on loads of threat. But the leadership guy had the card that lets everyone ready their characters and would have prevented them from taking the damage. I FEEL that he couldn't do this as a responce, but we let it slide since it would have been game over otherwise. When I noted our score, I just put an asterick next to it.
Thanks to everyone in advance!
