What I would like to know is, does a Legend defend a zone only if the Legend is being attacked directly? Or, does a Legend defend a zone even if it is the capital being attacked and not the Legend?
The very last paragraph in the insert says: "Also, it is important to note that a defending legend contributes the power it has (as damage) in the zone to the battle."
I take this to mean that a legend could use whatever power he has in that zone not only to defend himself but to defend the capital if the player so chooses. But that's only my take and it may not mean so.
I have some questions myself that were not addressed. For example if a player attacks a legend, kills any defending units and kills the legend itself, what happens to any leftover damage? It is assigned to the section of the capital he attacked through? Or is it ignored?
Can a legend be attacked through a burning zone? I guess it can, since there is nothing in the rules saying a player cannot attack a burning zone, there simply is no point in doing so without a legend. If this is the case, I assume leftover damage is ignored since the zone is already burning.
Can indirect damage be assigned to a legend? It would make sense if you could, but the rules only specify units and sections of a capital as targets for it. This may be outdated, as it was probably written before legends were conceived, but it is a valid question.
I've sent the first two questions to FFG and will post any answers I receive.
