Sorry if this has been answered already, did a search and came up naught.
Basically my mate plays as overlord and he likes big beasties. When he deploys them, such as "open group deploys in ruins" he says "the rules say that when the monster moves it is assumed to be only the size of one square and as long as there is enough space to place it on the map it can be turned or slotted in wherever"
What he does is place the shadow dragon so that the front two bits of him are in the room that he is meant to be in, and the rest of him blocking the hallway so I cannot get past him. Normally I would kill him but my rolling is occassionaly appaling and as a result, Sir Palamon and the cardinal are usually creamed before I can get them.
So my question is can he deploy monsters so that only one bit of them is in the space they are meant to be in, and the rest anywhere according to movement rules? Personaly I argue that he cant because those rules only apply to movement not deploying but if I argue too much he will spit the dummy and not play anymore. After creaming me in every encounter he still complains that the reanimate is overpowered…
