Bilious Bottle, does it trigger the first time you encounter it when you just flipped the card? and then this happened ...
I start my turn by advancing the blessing deck, then move to my location deck and flip the first card, nothing is displayed at this time. The "Bottle Bottle" barrier card is the first and only card flipped. The card reads as follows:
"Display the barrier faceup next to your location. The first time each turn that a character explorers this location, each character at that location rolls 1d4"
1. You are dealt 1d4+1 poison damage
So, as you can see above, I advanced the blessing card and flipped this card and it is my first exploration. Do I encounter this card now and roll my 1d4 to resolve my encounter right now? Or, end my turn resolve the end of turn step; now that it's displayed, going forward, anyone at this location when they start his/her turn makes the check until someone rolls a 4 and then we can banish it
** Let's say I roll the following **
2. You are dealt 1d4+1 fire damage: I roll and get a "1", it's 1+1=2 total damage
3. Bury the top card of your deck
4. Discard a card and banish this barrier
Reason why, I'm getting that same o' conversation regarding damage. "it says in the rule book : specific type of damage." the armor doesn't state "poison or fire damage".
He's what I say to help them understand :
If you read the card like this : blah blah "poison combat damage - then it's COMBAT DAMAGE, period. You can use an armor that states "discard/recharge/bury to reduce the combat damage by X amount"
If you read the card like this : blah blah "poison damage - then it's damage of that type of damage and you need to have an armor that reads "reduce poison damage by X amount OR banish the armor to reduce the "all the damage".
Hopefully I can get the answer and have them refer to this post for help understanding this. Seems I'm the only one at the table really trying to understand the rules precisely.
Thanks in advance for taken the time to read and respond if you did.
(We are playing a scenario in AD2 btw)
Another character is at his/her location, not mine, and is attempting a combat check and needs a blessing
Can I discard a "blessing of ascension" to give a mythic card to another character for that combat check?
It says: "Discard this card to get a mythic charge"
I'm thinking you can not, or it would state "give" and not "get" meaning the character who played it.
but you can give him/her the blessing of ascension to add 1 die to any check
Others at the table state otherwise. I know it may sound obvious but I thought I would ask.

You can banish an armor to reduce all damage down to 0 if the armor states that though. Just hope you have a few armors in your hand to deal with what come what may!
Thanks Hawkmoon269 for you reply, I was thinking you'd respond too =)

A question regarding “Banish this card”
So i’ve played the game for a while and things seem to go quite well. Then it occurred to me. I have a few cards in my character deck that state “Banish this card ….” So here are two examples
1.) In my hand, i have Ameiko Kaijitsu.
2.) And this Location B “General Store” states “When closing” Banish a card from your hand
I understand that both of these are “Banish” actions and to banish the cards. The confusion is, after I complete the scenario I need to rebuild my character deck. If I banished Ameiko Kaijitsu and the when closing card I’m now at 13 cards. So let’s say I complete the scenario with success, I’m now at 13 of the 15 cards I need to reset the character deck at the end of the scenario or adventure.
So, do I follow the rules, banish her and that when closing card to the box and I’m now 2 less cards in my character deck going forward until I succeed at a check to gain another ally or card (whatever that card type banished when closing) in my next scenario or adventure. Or, do I just place her and that card off to the side like a “Bury” of some degree and then put them back in my character deck at the end of that scenario/adventure(s)?
