Hello guys


As the overlord, i have been having some doubts about which parts of the encounter setup should be read / shown to the heroes when explaining each encounter.


for example, in the Cardinal's plight, encounter 1, there are 3 special search tokens where the relic token should be shuffled into so the token could be any of thoes 3.

my question is, should the heroes know that the token is only in one ofthoes 3 or in ANY of the avaliable search tokens ?


also, does the overlord setup his monsters first or do the heroes setup there heroes on the board first ?


Thanks in advance!

Best Regards

Everything in the Quest Guide is available to all players, it's not a DM Guide. Heroes can read all the info it has.

Heroes setup first, then OL.
