The second narrative section in this verse should read: "The Fore-dwellers have been gone from Avalon for six hundred years! The fact that one of them appeared here is the worst omen you could have possibly imagined."

Verse 643

"Secret E (316)" should instead read: "Verse 316", and "Secret A (521)" should instead read: "Verse 521."

Combat Cards[edit | edit source]

Diplomacy Cards[edit | edit source]

  • Bizarre Methods is missing an [on placement] icon. (note that this hasn't been officially confirmed)
  • Bizarre is misspelled in "Bizzare Methods" (extra "z").
  • Insight is misspelled in "Flash of Inisight" (extra "i").

Location Cards[edit | edit source]

Location 121 (back side)

Menhir cost should be: 1 Energy, 1 Health, 2 Wealth, and 2 Magic like what is written in the Journal

Gameplay Balance[edit | edit source]

This section contains balancing fixes and suggestions from the Official FAQ that you may apply to make the game more fair.

Item Cards[edit | edit source]

  • Third Eye– discard this Item after use.


Story Mode[edit | edit source]

  • If you decide to play the Story Mode, regardless of the number of players, use standard markers in the Health track, instead of the T-shaped limiter. Your Health does not limit your Energy, and you never Panic in Encounters.
