"If you succeed at meeting the “When Closing” requirement, search through the location deck, take out the villain if it is there, and banish the rest of the cards. If you find the villain, it becomes the entirety of the location deck, and the location is not closed—but at least you know where the villain is!"
Ah, righto! Thank you much Christopher. I've read the whole book but I've oddly not encountered this problem yet after 50+ games.. A few min after searching forum then posting this, I actually just did that (leave the Villain) simply "seemed right" but am glad to see a straight rule about it. Thanks again
How do you ever see the villian if the ZMs are closing off locations? (That is, if you get ZMs to shuffle above the villian/other henchmen.)
As you said, you banish all cards in the pile when you close a location.
What, if any thing, prevents this?
Could house rule that it works "matches" non-BOTG Blessings, or even scan and print another 5 of them if you sleeve your cards.
First, some facts:
Zombie Minion (Henchman card) says: "If defeated, you may immediately attempt to close this location."
Now then, in a 4 player game there is, 1 location with a Villian, 3 locations with "named" henchmen, and 2 with Zombie Minion henchmen.
Most people who sleeve will just do what I did tho; Print the missed cards and put them in front of a random Base card that would get removed from the game in a few months anyways. Plus, I already have 3 other Promos that haven't been released yet, with no plans to remove them when the real ones arrive.
I'm using card sleeves with printed backs on all cards the 1 sided cards, so that when I get around to making the templates for it, I'll be able to slip in a random non-PACG card into it with the printed one in front. Feels and looks identical to a regular PACG sleeved card.I've already seen several print-and-play custom scenarios that others have made, but I'd still much prefer to see Paizo come out with a card generator or .psd file templates.
The only issue with more fluff is you start to have people complain that you are spoiling the actual Adventure Path the game is based on.
If they don't want to spoil it, then they can just not read it. Why punish those who cant play the RPG just b/c the ones who can will get things spoiled for them?
I spoke to a CSR person from Paizo, and asked that since I had no idea they even had a subscription format to buy them if I could purchase Fire Sneeze from the company with my Pack2 deck, and all they said was "Well go to a convention to get Fire Sneeze then, if you don't want to pay so much for it on ebay"... the guy was really rude sounding about it.
Edit: Oh, he also told me to RE-purchase the game form their website to get Fire Sneeze with it (meaning they DO have it in stock still) then to sell the game. -_-
I gotta say, I'm let down by the 1st loot card. Quite badly too.
