I don't see a picture.
So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.

Sorry guys, apparently I can't post a picture right. I know, pics or it didn't happen. I tried again, mitchmash saw it, hopefully it works now.

Hate to ask for a re roll on such a rare occurrence. I awarded a six.
this is where I've been posting my painting progress so far:

The die has not landed yet, so you could just roll again. I think if that happened in our game we would knock the board to make it drop. When a die gets prevented from landing properly by something, our rule is to remove the object and let the die drop into place.

Use a standard cocked-die rule. Eaither:
If it's not obviously one side, reroll; or
If you can't easily balance another die on one of the faces, reroll.

Has any of you played an HQ game?
What is this talk about banging the table with HQ props on the table?

Re: Rules questions

Postby Jafazo » Friday March 31st, 2017 4:46pm

My take, based off the UK rules...

Pass through rock is clear, if you pass through rock into another solid rock tile, you can simply keep moving. It's in the spell card, "The player may move through as many walls as his movement will allow.", as many walls, doesn't matter how many, and standard movement rules apply, so you can't move onto a square with a monster or furniture etc.

As the Dwarf moves around the board, any pit traps, fallen rock traps or any custom trap is immediately disarmed, he doesn't even have to stop to try to disarm them. If he walks into a room with ten discovered pit traps, they all disappear. If he doesn't bother to search for traps and triggers one (say, a pit trap) he suffers the damage but then it immediately disappears and is disarmed. That's how his ability works if you treat it RAW (Read as written), the end, no questions asked. It's broken, it's an ugly mess and just, EWW, ugh. I tried scribbling up my opinion on how to handle this just to throw a bone but it's too messed up to even bother. My advice, use the NA rules.

As for the die landing in a weird way, c'mon, common sense... it hasn't rolled a result. Pick the thing up and reroll.
