Ch 5 preview - some questions for the devs.

p214, damage, major, are both "all heroes in the same location" and "all heroes in the scene" bothn supposed to be mid, as written, or is scene supposed to be min.

p215, top, twists,  "add a quantity of a threat equal to the Min die" - in this context, what is a point of threat?  This feels like a terminology/methodology change happened and a reference got missed.

p215, twists, Add a challenge - not clear what level of challenge it should be.

219, Rt, Top. creating lieutenants — "Lieutenant minions should have[…]" Is the minions there a copy-paste error?

Not a dev, and it looks like you're using an older version of the document, but taking a look at those:

  1. A subset of heroes, or all heroes and also all villains and NPC's, seem about equally balanced to me.
  2. I agree, it's confusing.  "Threats" can be minions, lieutenants, or villains, and bringing in a die's worth of villains doesn't make a ton of sense here.
  3. That's probably intentional, but same as the base scene makes sense.
  4. This was fixed in the most recent version.

So there is a newer version than that available?
I'm using the KS links from earlier this month, and the "Lieutnant Minion" typo is there.

Slightly related, would you know if there is a way to help proof-reading, report typos etc?


There is no "I" in "vowels"

Oh, never mind--it is there, it just moved from an earlier version.

Mention stuff here and a playtester will bring it up to GtG.

Which is precisely why I did what I did...

Some thoughts on the "quantity of threat" given that a minion is half a lieutenant for most purposes, I expect it means minions are 1 and Lieutenants are 2, but it could be 1/2 and 1.

I mean, it's good enough as is I can houserule it into function, but not everyone is good with "buy-then-fix" rulebooks, and the previews are there specifically to catch these kinds of things.
