      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

~Rules Question

4 posts in this topic

I have a question regarding those items/spells which have as a condition of their use 'before/after' rolling'. Does this mean that they have to be used before (or after) rolling any dice, or an individual roll. In other words, which is correct?

 

1) I have to use the spell/item before starting to roll any dice for that particular adventure - or, if the condition is 'after rolling' after I've finished rolling all the dice I can, or wish to.

 

or...

 

2) I can roll the dice pool, possibly complete an individual task (or not), and then, with dice still remaining in the dice pool, use these types of items and spells then.

 

Any help much appreciated :)

After each attempt to solve a task, not before / after deciding which adventure to attempt.

 

Please note that rules for spells were changed in the later printing of the game: they are to be used after rolling, not before.

Thanks very much for your response. I see what you mean about spells, but there are certainly items which still have 'before rolling' as a condition for their use.

 

Just to be absolutely clear (or possibly pedantic), if I understand correctly the word 'rolling' in this context means each individual roll of the dice pool, not the entire process of rolling all of the dice for that particular adventure?
