I just had a great game with the expansion. It was a 4 player session, so everyone got a decent look at the new features. We had some questions pop as we played that I'd like to hear everyone's thought about:
1. If my hero completes his Trials of Zorek quest by reaching a specific location, flips the exploration there, and gets flooded away, does he still collect the rewards and train for the quest? The card states that the hero just needs to be in the tile "during the Quest phase" to get the benefits. However, when the flooded location occurs, the revealing hero is moved two spaces away. Which resolves first?
I would say this quest is not completed in that case. Although it says "during the Quest Phase", I think you still have to follow the standard Quest rules, and be there during the quest segment, after movement and resolving the token. It seems it would be similar to "The Bazaar" and "Forward Scouting" quests, even if it doesn't use the same exact phrase - IE, you have to be in those areas when you normally resolve Quests, even though this quest is handled a little differently from the onset.
I'll clarify this with Corey though and put it in my document.
(For what it's worth, the question would also apply to being dueled by an enemy hero or being killed by a Raiding Party, too).
2. What happens when you run out of desolation and cryomancy tokens? Deserts of Yllan would seem to make this possible.
I would think these tokens are meant to be unlimited, but I'll also put this in my questions for Corey.
3. If someone builds a stronghold on a lost city, and the city is raised, the stronghold is vaporized, right?
Are you referring to the Lost City that can appear in Tile #12? If so, the situation cannot happen; on page 5, it says you cannot build Strongholds on tile 12.
