- I was answering a partner in the spanish forum about familiars and pits. First, rules say this: "The overlord player may not place a spawned monster in a space to which any hero figure on the board has line of sight (see “Line of Sight,” page 9-10). Exception: For purposes of spawning new monsters, other monster figures do not block a hero’s line of sight." But, as RAW, a hero in a pit block los to another hero figure, so as the hero in the pit has los only to the adjacent square, the OL can spawn monsters just in a straight line behind him, as you can see below:
XHXX (H) hero
XPXX (P) hero in pit
XXXX (M) monster
But later, I saw this answer from Kevin Wilson:
question: Do any figures block the heroes' line of sight for the
> purposes of spawning? No, figures never block line of sight for spawning purposes.

So does it mean ANY figures? Was this rule changed to affect all figures, and not only monster figures? So the OL could not spawn behind monsters, heroes or villagers, for example, as they are considered miniatures...
- Was the rule of staircases and familiars changed to allow familiars to cross them? Or are they still blocked? I remember an old post about Kevin allowing it, but I could be imagining it.
