    Web link
    On each attack, after inflicting at least 1 damage a hero will gain a web counter. Until this is removed (by rolling a surge on a power dice) the hero cannot spend any movement points.

    Poison link
    On each attack, a hero will have to remove a number of wounds and gain a number of poison tokens. Poison tokens must be healed to be removed and must be healed first before wounds.

    NB It's probably worth figuring out what damage you are likely to deal average minimum and maximum then when you attack one of these minions you know when to expect it to go down in one hit or whether it might take 2 or three hits. Then you can plan your strategy around that eg you might do a battle action against a monster that is likely to drop in two hits or you might take a ready action with dodge against a 3 hit monster knowing that even if you attack it full on that it will still be around to hit you. This will also help you plan your use of fatigue to boost trait dice when making an attack.

    It's also worth noting that a monster often has special abilities which make it harder to kill so be aware of them when making decisions. 

    Overlord's Plot: Obsidian Shackles

    While the heroes journey and grow more powerful, the overlord doesn’t remain idle. At the start of the Advanced Campaign, the overlord chooses one of three evil Plots he will pursue, to either destroy or conquer the world. If the overlord ever manages to complete his Plot, he immediately wins the game.

    The plot so far...
