XP and Weaknesses

Recommended Posts

Could someone please explain the rules regarding taking basic weaknesses in exchange for experience points. Is this actually a thing or have I made it up? Il

if it’s true how do the extra weaknesses count toward deck size?

You didn't make it up. It's part of the stand alone deckbuilding rules. From the rules section on ArkhamDB.com:

"When playing a standalone game (i.e., playing a single scenario as a one-off adventure, removed from its campaign), the following rules apply:

When building a deck for a standalone game, an investigator may use higher level cards in his or her deck (so long as they observe the deckbuilding restrictions of the investigator) by counting the total experience of all the higher level cards used in the deck, and taking additional random basic weaknesses based on the following table:

0-9 experience: 0 additional random basic weaknesses
10-19 experience: 1 additional random basic weakness
20-29 experience: 2 additional random basic weaknesses
30-39 experience: 3 additional random basic weaknesses
40-49 experience: 4 additional random basic weaknesses"

Weaknesses do not count towards deck size, AFAIK.

It is a thing, but only for playing scenarios in standalone mode (if you play in campaign mode, you start with 0 XP). Weaknesses never count against deck size.

  • A player's investigator deck must include the exact number of player cards indicated on the back of his or her investigator card as the "Deck Size." Weaknesses, investigator-specific cards, and scenario cards that are added to a player's deck do not count towards this number.
