For starters I am really hopefully that someone familiar with the game can start an FAQ soon now that digital copies are available.
I could have missed it but at the start of combat players select a phase (1,2,3,4 or 5) for round 1. Do players then select a new phase at the start of each new round? I’m starting to think the answer is no.
Coins and Cash under Tables and Treasures. What are these for if you use hero points to purchase and upgrade skills and equipment? Or is that if you find a “Gold Bar” for example you can exchange it to some NPC for the Hero Point value?
It doesn’t look like there are any type of Boons +1d6 / Banes -1d6 or Easy +3 / Hard -3 or roll 2d20 with Advantage / Disadvantage roll modifiers? I would assume a GM could house rule using one of these methods without breaking the game? I personally like boons / banes.
Not using coins is going to be hard for me to wrap my brain around, probably for my players to. I think a great option, if you have seen it, would be to use the Shadowdark RPG Carousing rules to earn Hero Points instead of XP.
