Both happy and sad that this is the last planned reward. I expect a few unplanned may yet make an appearance.
FASTER SHIPPING !!!! OMFG my last gripe with spending money has evaporated in a puff.
Is it a space-Lacewing larvae, camouflaging itself with bits of debris? Is it a particularly fashionable Elder-shoggoth, who thinks a spaceship or two might be just what this monolith look needs to pull it all together? Or is the truth where a mad sculptor's chisel chipped away the lie of unliving stone? YOU DECIDE!
@Sandy Thanks for looking into the wording. It would be a shame if some future mechanic gets added that moves Monsters or allows remote capture then this issue shows up and people are confused.
no game mechanic currently allows the monolith to capture a ship from another system. BUt I will reword the monolith so that it returns the ship to its current system.
Very happy to hear that this KS is exceeding your expectations!
So I see an issue with the wording on the card. It states "captured ships return to its former system." Now normally the ships would be captured from the system the Monolith is in and the Monolith would not move so the ships would just return to the system where the Monolith was destroyed. If, however, another game mechanic allows the Monolith to move or capture ships from other systems, then players would need to keep track of past events. After looking at the card again you may have meant the "its" to refer to the Monolith vs the captured ships. You might want to consider updating the wording to "captured ships return to the system where the Monolith was destroyed" or something similar.
Thanks John. That one was already fixed. Arthur just posted an old version of the card.
FYI there's a typo on the card graphic, "Monolth"
No Azathoth in Hyperspace????
Like all other monsters, the Giant Claw says to discard it and draw a new secret if any player has fewer than 2 VP. Unlike all the other monsters, though, it specifically says that you keep the hypers. Is this exclusive to the Giant Claw? Or should all the monsters say (or not say) this?
