Seems like high result of a dice roll may be sometimes more favourable for defender than lowest result.Unhappy Blows wrote:Playable on a company containing both Dwarves and Elves, or both Orcs and Trolls. Make a roll (draw a #) and subtract five (seven for Orcs and Trolls). If available, your opponent must choose and return to his hand any number of Elves and Dwarves (or Orcs and Trolls) in the company whose total mind equals or exceeds this result. Items played with these characters are also returned to opponent's hand. Cannot be duplicated on a given turn.
If a company contains Orc Brawler (mind 1) as only Orc character and Troll Lout (mind 3) as only Troll character and unmodified dice roll is 12 then there is no characters available whose total mind exceed or equals 5. If the dice roll before modification would be 11 then both characters would be returned to its player hand.
What is number to subtract if target company (lets say at Wizardhaven) contains Dwarves, and Elves, and Orcs, and Trolls?
Or maybe "or" in phrase "Dwarves and Elves, or both Orcs and Trolls." is an exclusive "or" so such company is not valid target for Unhappy Blows?
