Summoned Stone

Recommended Posts

I'm submitting an additional rules question to clear up my own misunderstanding. Otherwise, I'm glad we've got a response on this. Luckmann, don't take it personally. The fact is that FFG can't answer rules questions every day- so if you're submitting a question just before questions are being answered, you might have a very short wait. If you submit a question right AFTER some questions have been answered, you might be waiting until the next time rules questions are addressed. I don't know how often answers are sent out, but that's my best guess as to an explanation. 

 

I can confirm this, every rules question I've sent to FFG has been politely answered by Kara in about 3 to 4 weeks later.

 

Dr. Zalty, you may ignore my jokes but you can never get me to stop loving you! :wub::P

Luijod, I can confirm that the Shadow Soul can share a space with tons of thing...

and it's oh so good!, especially if you blast a group with the soul standing in the center...

 

That's such excellent news, I'm currently playing Kindred Fire with my sister.

 

She's got Silhouette (Shadow Walker) and Trenloe (Champion) while I'm playing as Challara (Geomancer) & Sahla (Prophet)

 

The synergy is quite tasty. Giving everyone except Silhouette re-rolls with Battle Vision, getting extra damage between Valor Tokens and the Shadow Soul and setting up the Stones defensively has gotten us out of every messy situations so far. 2 main quests and 2 side quests in and have yet to lose once.

Don't forget that in RtL play, Blast only fully affects the target, adjacent figures only suffer half damage...

Thanks for this discussion and the nice summary, Luijod. I hope it is OK, if I add this to the uFAQ Wiki at BGG.

 

Please feel free to do so on this or any future rules topic where I post any official answer from FFG. I can't stress enough how helpful the community here and at BGG has been in helping me understand the rules for this awesome game!

Don't I know it brother!

 

2 nights ago we were beset on all sides by the full Hell Hounds group and with some clever positioning I was able to pull off a Molten Fury using the Battle Tome (I can't recall if that's the right name, it's a ranged weapon, magic & book, rolls BY and has a an effect that triggers on 2 Surges: Damage equal to you're Knowledge attribute then it must be unequipped).

 

So I sacrificed my Stone to use it's adjacency to ensure the extra surge needed. When I totalled the damage we both cheered as it was enough to wipe out the whole group. Then as I was going to remove the figures I remembered the rule about halving AoE attacks rounded up...

 

I only managed to kill one minion because he rolled low while the rest took about 2 damage as they all rolled good defense... 3 Shields in a row on the grey defense die...

And then you had unequipped your weapon... yeeeeeowch!

 

That is why my current preferred weapon for attacks like that is a Runemaster using the Staff of Greyhaven...

At 3 range (spot range for RtL) this weapon is deadly, just convert 3 range to damage, use one fatigue to add another 2 (if you`ve invested your skills wisely) and you can rack up enough damage that even 1/2 rounded up kills a minion...

Lucky for Challara she had the Lifedrain Scepter as back up
