Avatars

Main Game Concept, Road to Legend

Rules

(see RTL, p. 5, FAQ 1.3, p. 12)

The overlord, while still a powerful otherworldly creature capable of controlling his forces mentally, also has a physical form – his Avatar – in the Advanced Campaign. The heroes can seek out and kill this creature, and if they do, they win the campaign.

The Avatar’s form is variable; it might be that of a demon, a dragon, or several other options. Each option brings with it some basic abilities, as well as access to other, more powerful abilities, that can be purchased over the course of the Advanced Campaign. The overlord player chooses his Avatar’s form at the beginning of the Advanced Campaign, which is then fixed for its duration.

Avatars may make a Ready action, placing a guard, dodge, or aim order on themselves. However, they may not use a Guard token to interrupt an opposing player's Guard token.

Regardless of other effects, heroes are never immune to an Avatar's attack. ie. Zyla is never immune to the Beastman Lord's attack.
