Hello everyone, I am a fan of Magic the Gathering (if you have not played magic the gathering, you won't understand this adventure flavor and storywise), and with Ixalan out, i thought it would be fun to start an alternate adventure path for the Skull and Shackles base set. The first adventure starts on Ravnica, then onto Amonkhet in the second adventure , then she reaches Ixalan in the third adventure. You play as one of Magic's planeswalkers, made into characters using drive thru cards. I am using drive thru cards to make this and I have been working on the Ravnica adventure right now. Right now I only have one character, Vraska a gorgon assassin, and one of the 2 main characters in this AP.
Well, the card says, "if you would discard cards as damage, discard stolen larvae first..." so the usual effect of failing a bane check causes you to lose the Stolen Larvae, and it gets shuffled into your location.
I'm curious if the designers' intention would be to add "or bury" (Stolen Larvae) to the conditional above.
If not, watch out for Rolling Spheres while carrying those bugs...
Rolling Sphere: "If you fail the check to defeat, bury your hand."
Apparently, the Stolen Larvae get crushed under the weight of the rolling sphere, and we cannot win.
What we ended up doing was playing out until the final blessing and trying to loot open location decks and remove basic boons from the game. Then we replayed it, and won.
In the scenario Sting Operation,we had Ezren and Alahazra at the volcanic vents, and Ezren encountered Rolling Sphere, which caused Alahazra to make a Dex., Acro., or Disable check, or bury her hand. She failed, and had to bury her hand, which contained 2 Stolen Larvae. Do we lose because she can no longer have the larvae in her hand, or do we do what the scenario power tells us to do when we take damage?
In the examples on how to encounter a villain and how to set up the table, it implies that the Towering Obelisk location is in the scenario A Sandstorm of Malevolent Will, even though the scenario card doesn't use Towering Obelisk as one of the locations. Which is correct, the scenario card or the examples?
