Are you meaning the Detection Spell: Treasure Horde? Which should actually be Treasure Hoard?

Horde = A large group. Group of people/animals
Hoard = An accumulation, as in storage, money, or food.

Although this is only for the English versions. They could have meant it as a large group of treasure cards. So technically either works.

Or are you talking about Strands of Binding, where a figure cannot move or attack until they destroy the strands, which they cannot do, because they cannot attack? I assume others can attack the strands for them.

Nothing else that I've noticed. Enlighten us!

Ah, you must mean the Storm Master spell Lightning Bolt. The image shows the High Mage.

Hi, old thread but I think this point has not been discussed enough in the Inn or, at least I have not found anything. Please, correct me if I am wrong.

I suspect seeing the High Mage drawn in such picture of a Storm Master spell card instead of this one is more than a picture error... I think the Lightning Bolt was defined by creators as a High Mage spell instead of a Storm Master one, and the error range is bigger, here are my reasons:

- The picture shows the High Mage casting a lightning bolt and if we look at the High Mage spells cards' back, we can also see lightning bolts being casted by the High Mage so it confirms he knows how to deal with such dangerous lights.

- Wizards of Morcar EU quest pack included two long tiles, one for Earthquake spells and the other one for Lightning spells. The quest pack includes four different wizards but only one of them (Storm Master) can use those tiles...? for me it is rare since in the same expansion there are also cardboards for three different magic walls and each one of them is used by a different wizard, I guess looking for diversity avoiding concentrating all magic walls spells knowledge in a single wizard.

- I have always supposed that High Mage means that he is a HIGH WIZARD but, if you see the spells he can cast... compared with the spells of his colleages it seems that they are not too powerful since they do not include any clear attack spell... quite dissapoiting for a HIGH mage, isn't it?

Therefore, in my humble opinion, there are so many clues that suggest the real error in this quest pack is considering the Lightning Bolt as a Storm Master spell. Maybe Lightning Bolt should be switched by other spell from High Mage deck in order to consider it as a Storm Master spell instead of a High Mage one. I think Escape spell could be a good candidate for the switch looking at the spell art and trying not to repeat similar spell rules compared with other Storm Master spells.

What do you think? I am the only one who guess that?

P.D.: I know that Lightning Bolts appear during STORMS... but, I think there are the mentioned heavy reasons that suggest other intentions by creators for such spell.

I think that Wizards of Morcar was put together in a rush and has quite of lot of issues, which can easily be fudged around, but really wasn't in a fit state for release when it was put to market.

I agree with Pentroncius, they didn't do so much playtest and the story and the quests are really poor.
It is the only questbook featuring only 5 quests.
I remember Gian (a member of the Rage Terrain Art forum) did a revised version of the image to fix this.
But can't find it now
