Question.

Zara's *stakes* skill says that she gets +1 to stab vs "players on any" Necro, Undead and Vampire team, which includes the Werewolves on the Necro team and also the star player Wilhelm Chaney if he's hired by any of them.

But... would Zara get the +1 on Wilhelm Chaney if he were playing for a Norse team for instance? As if you went by the rules for the *stakes* then technically she wouldn't get the bonus.

Personally I think she should still get the bonus, but what do other people think?

Thanks.

Well, I guess no?
Would be a lot better if the skill stated vs any player with the regen skill, but ho hum.

So if a necro team hires Morg'n'Thorg, Zara would get +1 against him too?

By letter of the law, I agree.

See above.

Disagree - then she could target Trolls.

A stake through the heart wouldn't bother a troll?

Necromantic teams can't hire Morg 'n' Thorg, so this occurrence is impossible.

According to the fluff, only fire and acid can kill permanently a troll, so a stake is not a particular annoyance.

Oh I suspect it would be an annoyance ;)

Unless it were coated in flaming acid, in which case it would be more than an annoyance (and very difficult to wield, I suspect)...

Yep :D anyway, a stake is an anti Undead, Khemri, Necromantic and Vampire weapon, a troll is not an undead creature.

But a Vampire team can hire Morg, and Zara gets +1 against Vampires as well (that's quite the point, one might say :smoking: ) so yeah + 1 v.s. Morg is a possibility.

Stakes is anyone playing for the 4 undead teams
not in the case of an "undead" star playing for a non "undead" team
