Do I know if they got a glimpse inside the buildings? Does showing Wandereus the information from Logan's Run ring any bells in his head? Does he know of any policies that Breathairia has that might tell us more about those units? (Was he required to run the city at a profit?) Junetta gets asked some of the same questions and also gets asked if she has either recently traveled to Logan's Run or was going to in the near future.[/b])
Wandereus was required to run at a profit. They primarily relied upon archers to protect the city from the occasional random pop. He's almost certain most of the units will be garrison - if they're prepping for war, they'll have moved all mobile units to a staging area, if any were there.

If it left as soon as it was created, it would have enough move that it could travel the 36 hexes between Dis City and Logan's run by the end of turn 12. (36 hexes is the max range of this gimmick with a faerie. If the uncroaked faerie survived the entry into Logan's Runon turn 12, I believe that it would still dust when at the start of turn 13, when it get hit for its 3rd helping of normal decay and its first of extended decay.) I'd forgotten that Imps couldn't see stats. An uncroaked Faerie, however, could be used by Bill to extend his senses in the same manner that let him see the stats on Armolad's force.
Sure, I'll allow it. You'll get the stats as soon as The Colonel confirms the order.

Swodaems wrote:Am I correctly interpreting the picture when I say that Logan's run is a doorless, walled up, compound? Are there no ladders or any other way for the ground troops inside to come outside? Are there ladders on the interior?
It's not doorless. Nemo was championing attacking a section of wall that did not include the gate, figuring it would not be as well-defended, so I didn't bother to include the gate in the image.
Swodaems wrote:I also asked this in the rules thread, but I really want to know how far the hex barrier is from the wall.
More than 100 squares, well out of RLOS. That will be standard for all combats from this point on. I'm eliminating the Hex Barrier as a standard component of combat except for special circumstances.
Swodaems wrote:You've said that restacking units will no longer happen freely each round. Does this apply to units that are created in mid battle?
Units that Bill uncroaks can immediately join his horde when they're created - they'll get the 'free stack at the start of combat', since combat starts for them when they are made. Same for any Dolls that Vinny makes on the fly later on.
Swodaems wrote:When Bill is horded with his uncroaked, they gain the miltary special. Can they use it to boost Bill despite his lack of the military special? (This same question will later apply to Vinny as well.)(Bill can fire twice.)
Yes, although see the discussion in the rules thread about changes to support/coordinate for Fire attacks.
Swodaems wrote:Bodyguard says that it prohibits the use of it alongside guard/interpose, but what about support/coordinate? Could a pair of skele archers with bodyguard be used to both protect and boost Bill?
In the 2.0 rules, lesser uncroaked and skeletons no longer get to choose how their AP is spent.
Reanimator - Animate a single Croaked humanoid unit (friend or foe) as a Minor Uncroaked (treat as Warrior with Beefy and Uncroaked special). (4 Juice)
[Requires Reanimator] Bone Puppeteer (1 AP) - Create a Skeleton (treat as Warrior w/ Beefy and Well-Protected. Unit also gains the Skeletal special) from a single Croaked humanoid unit (friend or foe). Croaked units with the Spearman build can be uncroaked as Spearmen (Beefy, Well-Protected, Skeletal), and Croaked units with the Archer or Flier build can be uncroaked as Archers (Beefy, Skeletal). (8 Juice)
You would have to pop Tenebris archers w/ bodyguard, croak and Uncroak them in order to use such a combo.
Swodaems wrote:Is there only 1 unknown NPC available for this scenario?
Only one was planned. Most player are creating secondary PCs in order to participate, and the NPC is guaranteed to be a one-shot. It will likely not be seen again, but if it is, it won't be controlled by a player at that time. Once the scenario begins, I'll probably open up some of the other NPCs to being player-controlled if people want to join in.

Sprites are Breathearian units. They're a variation on the Fliers that Tenebris can pop.
