      Another vote for the convict to have no corporate objective and 2 personal objectives instead to counter balance Android!

      @Márton András Makfalvi:
      If something needs claryfying, you should send questions and suggestions to feedback@awakenrealms.com

      "it is not clear what do the handcuffs do. Are they blocking any action? Or they just using up 1 hand slot?"
      It was said in Update #49 that handcuffs block one of Convict's hand slots (mind it limits usefulness of Pipe - it's easy to get, but Convict can't carry other weapon or an Object AND a Pipe). As we see, nothing was added to it, but maybe additional clarification in rules is a good idea.

    5. Márton András Makfalvi on

      @AR, back to the handcuffs. Is it a free action to discard it by other players than the bounty hunter itself? The action cost is not stated anywhere.

    6. Márton András Makfalvi on

      @AR, it is not clear what do the handcuffs do. Are they blocking any action? Or they just using up 1 hand slot? If the bounty hunter is 4 corridors away, or not in game can the conflict remove the handcuffs himself? The card sais any player can remove it so I would think yes. Also it is a free action to drop any heavy object. It should be in the rules that the handcuffs can't be discarded this way. Anyway I would give the convinct a way to remove it himselfs. If nobody is willing to help him, it is a really great setback during the whole game. And it would be also fun that the convict would have no corporate object, just two personal similar to the Android.

      So is Aftermath going to be Intruder exclusive? In otherwords, can that mode not be played with Carnomorphs or Voidseeders?
      Since the alerts are bound to Intruder event cards.

      The misunderstanding was all mine! Thank you for replying.

      What about the compatibility of the Aftermath characters with the Untold Stories script book?
      Everything ok?

    10. Fab on

      @Abbath
      The new characters are very assymetric so I'm not very surprised by their card amounts. For example the CEO is forced to remove some cards from the game if he used them.

      Heya! Rules raised a quastion I've been wondering about even in main game:
      "The Android cannot use green items to Dress or Heal its *own* Wounds."
      Does it imply that we can use items to dress/heal others?

    12. Abbath on

      There are some errors regard the cards.
      The face and backs of the cards Quest Item: Augmented Arm and Quest Item: Pipe are mixed up. Quest Item: Augmented Arm has pipe on back and Quest Item: Pipe has Augmented Arm on its back.

      Are the different action card amounts correct?
      CEO 14
      Android 10
      Psychologist 10
      Bounty Hunter 11
      Convict 9

      @ Awaken Realms: Thank you for your new update. But could you please start to send me the painted miniatures from "This War Of Mine"? I am waiting for them for more than a year. Besides it would be nice if you could eventually answer my emails / personal Kickstarter messages I have sent to you...

      one more thing...all the new characters of the Aftermath will each have their own Action Card Deck and starting items, noy just inherit the ones of the corrseponding color standard character, right?

      In the Stretch Goals they were intended to have new action cards and starting items, so I just wanted to confirm it still so.
      Many thanks, this game is coming out a beauty. Can't wait to get my hands on my copy.

      - Perhaps I'm misunderstanding something, but they do have their own cards. You can click on the image of the cards to download and see them.

      If the melee actions are intentionally left off the character boards, as indicted below from @Jaffa's question, does this have any rules implications?

      - They are intentionally left off. I'm asking about the solo player questions - but for your other questions it would be better to send them to the feedback email: feedback@awakenrealms.com

      Super excited about this expansion, a LOT of very good ideas.

      I like very much traits, which makes characters more unique, would it be possible to get traits for the characters of the base games also, having 6 more cards?

      After reading the rules, I am concerned if Turrets are not too weak in terms of damage to justify all the additional management of checking/changing status on the room, they would require or enable tactival play? Any way to make them more scary or effective?

    24. Samael on

      Having read through the rules I have a suggestion on the research mode set up.

      Shuffle the room 2 tiles, apart from room covered in slime
      Place 4 face up on the room 2 locations on the shuttle,
      Add room covered in slime back to the room 2 tiles, reshuffle them and place face down ion the main board.

      Great news ! Thank you.

      @AR
      1) Are the Aftermath characters and the Aftermath "research mode" compatible with the script book Untold Stories ?
      _
      2) just a minor thing but I suggest to move up the image of the drone in the card layout so that it is not covered by the card text.

      -Android Healing: The rules say that the the android's wounds can be dressed or healed by tools/duct tape, but her Trait card only says "Dressed".

      Not sure if it's just a space limitation, but could be confusing.

    33. Damien.M on

      Great new!

      I think it's will be better if the character's trait apear on charater's board instead of a card. Like in Lords of Hellas.

    34. Matthew Powell on

      If the melee actions are intentionally left off the character boards, as indicted below from @Jaffa's question, does this have any rules implications?

    35. Matthew Powell on

      Thank you very much for the update! Can't wait to see this, both on TTS and in my hands.

      Skimming through the rules/cards, there are some questions:
      -Are Epilogue and/or Aftermath meant able to be played solo? It seems like Research is and Epilogue isn't, but isn't explicitly stated how many players these modes are meant for.
      -In Epilogue Setup, during the Intruder Bag set up, it lists rules for 2, 4, and 5 players. Is this supposed to be 1-2, 3-4, and 5, respectively?
      -If the Psychologist or the Convict follow another character's Escape move (using Shrink or Opportunist, respectively), are they subject to Intruder attack, or does only the initial character take an attack?
      -Lend a Hand (Psychologist): 1) Does the other character have to have the means to destroy a door, such as Demolition in their hand, or is this simply a "free" action? 2) If you compel another player to perform a room action, who chooses the target of the action, in the event of rooms like Fire Suppression or the airlocks?
      -The rules regarding Alerts in the Epilogue game might need some work. 1) Step 17 says to place a Time marker on the green space of the Shuttle Time Track, but there is currently no green space on that map [presumably it would go on Space 5]. 2) Step 17 says to place a marker on "Space 3 and 5", but given that you countdown your turns, should it not read to "Space 1 and 3"?

      Thanks again!

      @PB: I understand that Convict can use all of his Actions even when handcuffed. Handcuffs just block one of his Hand Slots, so he can't have more than 1 Heavy Item or Object.

      @Scott McCarthy: Medic is not a part of the expansion, she's just KS exclusive. Consider her an expansion on her own ;)

      Since the Aftermath rules specifically talk about larva, intruders, etc, will the Voidseeders and Carnomorphs have a little Aftermath section in their respective rulebooks?

    43. Robert Haddon on

      This looks great, but it also looks like AR is just now getting started on Wave 2 material!
      It is very doubtful that single-wave shippers will receive anything in 2019.

      PB on

      It is not clear which actions the convict cannot do when he is handcuffed (cards, attacks, room action...).
      Maybe it will be handy to have an icon on the cards which he needs to be free in order to perfrom these actions...

    46. Fab on

      I've read everything and WOW...This looks insaaaaaanely fun! I was smiling and laughing while reading the cards and rules. There are so many epic stories that can happen with all this content, I'm very impressed by your creativity. Each character has a very thematic gameplay...The Alerts and discovery tokens look very fun and immersive as well.
      I have some questions about the Android. The way it is worded I'm not sure how the CEO interacts with her objective cards, does he know her chosen secret objective? Otherwise, you mentioned during the campaign that the Android will be usable as an alternative of the intruder role when one player dies. Is it still the case?

      Ummm.. YES! Loving these new tokens and rooms!
