Question: Confused by the Fear and Darkness aspect of the game. Drew Phobius The Bold, but couldn’t find any mechanic involving Fear or Darkness.
Also, my Phobius says “You may overcome darkness & fear if your movement roll is 1, 2, 3 or 4” where I saw the one listed in the campaign says that he just ignores these mechanics.
Answer: Phobius is one of the characters that is more helpful when playing the expansions, or more specifically when the peril selected is ‘The Reaper’.
Fear and darkness make the allies move slower (half-speed) when on the same level.
Phobius has a large advantage when facing this peril, and we had to limit the ‘100%’ element from the characters ability, as it created an unfair advantage in the expansions. Some of the cards changed a little from the campaign to the final version.
