Battle step overview


The battle takes place in a series of combat rounds, until either you have defeated the monster or you cannot spend effort when required, collapsing from wounds and exhaustion. In each round of combat, the player takes a turn, then the monster takes a turn. (If playing on Hard difficulty, the monster will take the first turn) .

On the Monster Tracker place a token on the spaces corresponding to the monster’s Armor and Health values as listed on the Monster Sheet.


Conditions will often modify the base combat rules. Make sure you keep any active Condition Cards handy to remind yourself of their effects.
