Rules clarification for Pandora

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I have a question regarding Pandora's Misery ability, Fading Memory ability and her Expose Fears ability. Say someone takes an attack targeting Pandora's DF, expose fear states that she can use her Wp instead of DF and that she considers the duel as a Wp duel. If she wins the duel, does the Misery and Fading Memory ability trigger? If not, why? My friend told me that they don't trigger but didn't point me to the rules that clarifies this. Thank you in advance.

Your friend is half right, half wrong. Fading Memory goes off. There is no reason it wouldn't. All you need is to win an opposed duel where you were using Wp. Those requirements are both fulfilled.

On the other hand, Misery requires the enemy model to fail a Wp duel, and a duel is only a Wp duel for the models using Wp. So if they were attacking Pandora using Wp and they failed, they would take 1 damage. If they were using another stat such as Ml, Sh, or Ca, then it is a Ml, Sh or Ca duel for them and they would not count as failing a Wp duel if they lost.

No. Misery triggers every time an enemy fails a WP duel. This means WP has to be the stat your enemy uses. For example an horror duel, or if you attack him using incite, as it is resisted by wp.

 

Fading memory triggers everytime pandora wins a WP duel against an enemy model. For example if she is targeted by an enemy action that is resisted by wp. OR if she uses exposing feary to change a df duel in a wp duel for herself. Third option again is incite as she uses her wp stat to attack, so its a wp duel for her.

 

More Concrete: You have Pandora with the 'the Box opens' granting her terrifying. Your Opponent attacks her using a Sh attack action with Rst: Df from 6" apart.

First he checks his Horror duel, a test of his WP against a target number. He flips high enough - nothing happens. If he would have failed, on top of gaining paralyze and ending his activation Misery would have kicked in, as he used WP in a simple duel and failed.

Next is his Attack flip. Before anything is flipped, Pandora decides to use exposing fears and changes her resist from df to wp. During the following flip the attacker performs a Sh-duel, against pandoras Wp-duel. Pandora eins. As the opponent hasn't used his wp, Misery doesn't triggers. But as Pandora has won a Wp-duel she can now push from fading memory.
