A quick question about  "A Test of Faith".. (encounter one). You state that anytime a hero is "moved by a monster on an Edge," he must test Might. When you say "moved", I presume you're referring to being moved by Knockback, correct? In other words, if Knockback would move a hero off an edge into a gap, the hero can test Might to prevent that, right? Thanks!


If a hero is moved by a monster by any means(knockback, trow, etc.) on a encounter marker (the edge) he tries to grab something to hold onto to not loose his balance and fall down the gap. If he passes the test he stays on the edge space, if he fails place him at the gap "space" between the tiles. Maybe I will recheck that wording to make it more clear.

Thank you, ok. As it turned out in this encounter, the last two heroes to fall into the gap (Jain, Ispher) were both knocked out with attacks that included two surges (knockback). I made the interpretation that since they were knocked out, they were not entitled to test their Might attribute. Earlier, the overlord attempted to march Ispher off the edge via Dark Charm, but he passed the Willpower test and it didn't work.. I assume all these options are "legal".

Speaking of Might tests, for Encounter 2 of Test of Faith, what is the Broodmother's Might rating? I couldn't find that anywhere (may have missed it). I'm going to assume "4" until I hear back from you. Maybe "5"?

Encounter One of Test of Faith is awesome! At the same time, it was absolutely brutal on the heroes. They had done well with the Act 1 quests, lost the Interlude (Follow the Widow) and then were completely slaughtered in their first Act II quest. It didn't help that Reynhart fell into the gap on his first attempt when the rope slipped from his grasp. Jain made the other side (Awareness), but Ispher and Lyssa lacked the courage to try it after seeing what happened to Reynhart, so stayed on the original side and fought from there, until Ispher eventually leapt over somewhat later (only to be butchered relentlessy…).

Anyway, if you could let me know the Broodmother's Might rating when you get a moment, I'd very greatly appreciate it. Thanks again!!

Oops, never mind on that Broodmother question… I just found all her ratings on the On the Run quest posted on BGG. (It wasn't in the pdf file notes about  the Test of Faith encounter 2.) I must have missed an additional post about lieutenant ratings and such. Is there a separate listing of lieutenants somewhere (other than within the body of the encounters that you posted on the BGG pages)? Sorry to be so dense. I see the rating is "4" by the way.

These are heady times indeed! 

Stupid question department: Is there a quick way to copy, for example, a lieutenant card, from the Silken Threads supply web page (or any card for that matter) and have it print out in the intended size? (My Broodmother card came out too large, although of course it "still works".) Do I need Photoshop?

The FFG Editor is here: http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=3871

Custom GOODNESS!

 



I am no longer special =(

^^ funny joke.

 

Oh, but you still are special. After all, I don't see FFG releasing all the card templates - nobody would buy the game. So, you still have a great mod going. I guess for those who add additional content to a quest (using FFG's quest editor) they can simply add the download address in the Quest Text area for people to grab.
