Re: Essence cards rules clarification needed

Good questions.

You should be able to choose any mix, even cards that aren't in your nature (I think the example has such). To avoid being a one trick pony, I'd always keep a mix of 3 talents, with no more than half going to any singular one.

The Art of Holding Runes

As I playtested Vanagard I realized that one mechanic in particular was more intricate than planned, the Held Rune mechanic. The basic purpose of Held Runes is to give Norns some control over randomly drawn difficulties. When a Van-Folk Hero draws a green rune whilst hunting a dragon the Norn can ad...

Re: Live Play Examples

You're right, I believe I was still fine-tuning the final details at the point. In this case stick to the rulebook, roundup for rune loss.

Hope the examples are helpful.

Re: Essence cards rules clarification needed

You're correct.

As for discarding, you choose what's on the table. Then, if you need to discard more Essence than you drew, you do so from the top of your dek.

Hope this helps.

Re: Essence cards rules clarification needed

Hi Episodex, At the end of a successful Challenge drawn Essence cards should be shuffled back into the Hero's Essence Deck. At the end of the failed one, 1 Essence is discarded per drawn rune. If there are cards left on the table after this, they should be shuffled back into the deck. If more cards ...

Live Play Examples

Hey Folks,

So last October I participated in Gauntlet Con and managed to run two Vanagard sessions over Roll 20. These are the best examples of the most up-to-date version of the rules. Check them out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAGogyy ... iKrRdiS5Cp

How Phantom Wood looks to Strangers

At the edge of Phantom Wood, they paused. Behind them was Frey’s Golden fields, an open, vast, land of beauty. Dotted across the distance were quaint Vanir farms where a warm smile and open hand beckoned hospitality. Echoing in the distance were the peaceful notes of Lois Alfar pipes and drums, who...
