Quote from Lectrys »Quote from Ritokure »It's a possibility, considering MaRo hints have been inaccurate before, but what horror trope would it be tied to? In horror stories monsters are supposed to be these undying forces that are relentlessly aggressive, reason we got mechanics like... well, Undying. Them disappearing after getting a hit in feels pretty backwards on how horror tropes work. Maybe this could work for Spirits, but is this really a mechanic that would fit what has been historically a tribe of 1/1 flying weenies?
Actually, I can imagine them stapling the Geist of Saint Traft Angel exiled-at-end-of-combat trigger on a whole bunch of tokens. Temporary help bravely fighting back against the lengthening night, anyone?
I read that hint as an option -- a way to create tokens without drawback for full price, or with drawback for cheaper. Temporary vs. permanent makes most sense, IMO.
