Sjeng: Yeah but I thought there was also a rule that said "always shuffle before a hero draws." At least a vaguely worded one.

Caranthir flanks the front door, getting his first view of the lavish interior: hoping his isn't the first group to infiltrate the manor, he searches the entrance for lost items.

Already his luck shines brighter than the wizard's...

EDIT: Should I shuffle the deck for each treasure draw? Or wait 'til it's out of cards?

Despite what is printed on the card (the last sentence was never changed from the original EU card), Page 16 of the NA Instruction Booklet specifically states that the "bad" treasure cards may be redrawn in the next treasure search and instructs Zargon to shuffle the Treasure Deck before a new search. Just another case of the rules being rewritten, but the cards being poorly edited.

Kili Therikkson
Trollslayer

Move: 2 red dice
Attack: 2/3
Defense: 3/2
Body: 7
Mind: 3
Equipment: shortsword, helmet, 5 daggers

Eddy's cry of pain wakes Kili up from nappy-time, so he moves west and north to the door. If he moves 6 or more, he'll move in 1 square and throw a dagger at the Goblin, warning others of possible traps.

Move:
Daedalus rolled 2 6-sided dice:
1, 4


Since he can't get into the manor, he'll search for secret doors.

Scratching himself and yawning deep and loud like a lion, Kili lumbers up to the front door, casually looking for secret doors as he goes and finding none.

The goblin lets out a tiny shriek of terror and flees back around the corner.

The NA rule as I understand it is each hero can search the same room for treasure once.

Essentially the little forest pixie stole your loot while you dealt with the trap. You gonna take that crap? /infighting /snicker

I was just hoping jealous heroes would do some of the work for me. :twisted:

Hurgar charges after the terrified goblin, noting another door around the first corner. As he rounds the next corner, he spots his quarry speaking urgently with another goblin slave. They go wide-eyed at the sight of the barbarian, but grit their teeth and snarl, their confidence bolstered by the two-to-one odds.

Hurgar pauses only briefly to consider his next move...

(do ya smack the little turd or stand your ground?)

Maybe someone should stick with Hurgar as he charges through the mansion with reckless abandon...

Well that gets me as far the door next to Hurgar so I'll go and stand there. I'm not going to risk finding a wandering monster in this corridor (can we search corridors for treasure?) and there doesn't seem to be much point searching for traps or secret doors so that's my turn over :(

BigBene hasn't concluded his turn yet, so I'll resolve yours after his. I don't wanna presume he'd be okay with two goblins double-teaming him.

The NA rules state you can't find treasure in corridors, probably because of the "each hero can search the same room" rule.
