 Lots of questions here on the board, and even more speculation. Can the actual game developers start a sticky where they actually clarify  the more common rules questions that keep popping up?  I'm thankful to all the other players help in there interpretation of the rules, but it would be nice to hear something from the horses mouth.

I'm sure there will be a FAQ/errata before too long.

But I am quite sure that designers are restricted from responding specifically to questions about FFG games...  Richard Launius is all over responding to questions about Defenders of the Realm, so I know he'd be eager to help about this game if he could.

I sure hope so because I absolutely love this game. In most cases I have been able to apply common sense to most rule gaps but there are still one or two areas that I'm not sure about and would love to get an 'offical' ruling for. It's a shame that what is such a great game is let down by its rule book.

 Exactly the way I feel

Richard has provided some "the game's intent was …" answers at BGG. It sounds like Elder Sign is now FGG's (and Kevin's) baby. Richard has stated that some abilities originally were per day and that the end battle was supposed to be that each investigator gets an attack, then the GOO attacks. So the Doc solo can't automatically win GOO battles with stamina loss attacks.

Most of the problems with Elder Sign seem to be in the final production stage, especially the editing of the final rulebook, which appears to have ignored any questions that came up during play testing (or they changed the wording of the rules without play testing the final version much).
