6 posts in this topic

Next week, according to the preview.

Very exciting to see the rules at last.  (And to finally discover how the Burning condition works.)

Did the rules explain burning?  I thought it didn't.

They did release the card picture, which has the rules.

IIRC, as an action a figure or adjacent figure can put out the burning condition. Otherwise, at the end of the burning figure's turn, it and adjacent friendly figures take 1 heart damage.

The rulebook doesn't, but one of the links in the preview is the face of the Burning condition card.

Indeed.  Apparently fire only burns your friends, not your enemies. =P

Probably to prevent a player from using a flaming figure as a "fire ship", charging into a crowd of opponents & damaging them all without any chance to evade or mitigate the damage.  The intent is for it to be a harmful condition, not an offensive ability.

Serendipity … I was just reading earlier about a D&D adventure where a character acquired a potion of fire resistance & some greek fire (napalm), and combined them to ignite himself & charge into a mob of orcs -- human fireball!
