Just received the game as a Christmas gift in the hopes of using it as a way to get my wife to the game table for a change. So far so good, but I have a couple of questions that the rulebook wasn't entirely clear about. They would probably be obvious to anyone familiar with the LCG, but this is my first card game from FFG, so I'm totally new.
The Plot Cards: I had assumed Plot Cards would be house specific, but after unboxing the components, they have the same card backs and nothing to distinguish any card as being associated with any particular house. Should they be diligently kept separated as packed, or - in the case of drafting plots - kept in one universal plot deck that anyone can draft from?
High-Claim Military Challenges: The paragraph on this seems to indicate at first glance that having a duplicate of a character won't save it from being killed during a military claim, but it also seems that it could be saying that an attacker with a claim value of 2 or higher would have to kill one of each character in play, perhaps leaving the duplicate card to "fight another day?"
Outside of those two confusions on my part, it's a very straightforward and fun game and I totally wouldn't mind seeing some fixed-deck additional house expansions in the future!
Thanks in advance for any answers!
