Gorgon clarification please

4 posts in this topic

Just played this race for the first time, and we were confused. It's mostly straight forward, except the one line that says your ships never go to the warp.

 

Does that mean that even as an offensive player or ally, should I lose, my ships just return home?

Your answer is in the second half of the sentence. It says "Your own ships are never sent to the warp as a result of your power."  This is just FFG's way of saying that the Gorgons don't paralyze themselves. Thng is, it's a completely unnecessary sentence, since Gorgon's power already says it applies only to other players. But FFG can't seem to resist adding redundancies and over-explanations until things get confusing.

 

Gorgon is actually one of the worst-written powers in the game; nobody's really even sure whether all the ways they changed this alien relative to the original Mayfair version were actually intended or not.
