My regular opponent and I today played the first two scenarios in the linked campaign in the Campaign Book…but we ended up with a couple of questions again…
The Super Mutants convincingly won the first Defend the Farm scenario, burning 6 of the 8 crops, but also wiping out the entire opposing force…which begged a question of Victory Conditions. In this scenario, it was possible to qualify for both Major and Minor victory at the same time. When this happens, does the Major Victory automatically override the Minor victory results, or do you get both, or do you get to choose? Not to mention, the consquences of Minor vs Major victory are quite different in this scenario.
In the second scenario, Newshound…Piper managed to investigate 2 of the four markers. So, nobody qualified for any victory conditions. No problem, it’s a draw. But…what happens to a Settlement in a draw? Do both sides count as losing? (This is how we handled it) Or should there be some different consequences?
Lastly…Newshound seems awfully difficult to actually win as the Defender. With Piper having a Yellow movement, actually getting to 3 of the markers at all would seem quite challenging. Has anyone actually managed to find a way to win this one?
