Main Game Concept, Road to Legend
I - Rules
(see RTL, p. 13)
Incident cards without a prominent “non-combat” designation generate combat encounters. When these cards are drawn, the overlord shuffles all of the Location cards and draws one. The Location card shows the map on which the battle will take place, and describes a special rule that applies to the battleground. Once a Location card has been drawn, the overlord assembles the map as shown on it, and leaves the card out for easy reference.
