What was explained? (FAQ)
1. Wandering River Style – When using the Four Winds Punch Action, Markers are removed and then Dropped again. Do these markers change Alignment (friendly/enemy)?
a) No. The Markers Dropped by this Action are the same as those removed and do not change Alignment when removed.
2. Gwyneth Maddox – Does the Luck Thief Ability apply before or after and modifiers cancel each other out?
a) Before. Modifiers to a duel (such as ofrm Focused, Concealment, etc.) are generated during Step A of performing duels (pg. 10).
Luck Thief immediately applies to any modifier generated changing it to a modifier. Then, the duel proceeds to Step B, at which point and modifiers would normally cancel each other out.
3. Lone Swordsman – If the Lone Swordsman takes the Last Breath Action twice in an Activation targeting the same model, are the effects cumulative?
a) No. However, if The Lone Swordsman targets two different models with the Last Breath Action in the same Activation, it would resolve the effects of both actions separately.
