New Rules (2021) Clarifications & Errata

Postby hcrulesteam » Fri Jun 18, 2021 8:30 pm

Provided below are some general clarifications to help clarify how wording on Modern Age game elements released prior to the 2021 rules changes will interact with the new 2021 rules. This includes clarifications to some powers and abilities. These clarifications may receive updates if any issues not addressed here are found.

If a game element's wording does not easily interact with these clarifications, or has an interaction that is not addressed by these clarifications, then they will receive their own individual errata.

General Clarifications

Postby hcrulesteam » Fri Jun 18, 2021 8:33 pm

References to "at no cost" are now "as FREE".

- This clarification ensures that any action that used to be given “at no cost” now follows the new format of actions being given “as FREE” instead. Note that this will now prevent characters from repeating the same action “as FREE”. Unless a character receives a specific errata stating otherwise, they must be played using the new rules. Also, this clarification applies to powers and abilities not specifically addressed in the Powers/Abilities Clarifications below.


Any map that has printed Obscuring Terrain (white colored boundary line) will now be considered to have printed Hindering Terrain (green and white checkered boundary line) instead.

- Since Obscuring Terrain no longer exists under the new rules, this clarification allows maps with Obscuring Terrain to be used properly.


References to "Named Themed Teams" or "Generic Themed Teams" are now considered to reference "Themed Teams".

- Since there are no longer Named or Generic Themed Teams, this clarification allows effects that look for either of those types of themed teams to function as close to original intent as possible. Note that this clarification does not apply to effects looking for a themed team that uses a specific keyword.


References to "PROTECTED" (all caps) are now considered to reference "SAFEGUARD".

- This clarification shows that the SAFEGUARD keyphrase now replaces the PROTECTED keyphrase, but the effect functions the same as before. Note that this clarification does not apply to the "Protected" (lower case) keyphrase.

Powers/Abilities Clarifications

Postby hcrulesteam » Fri Jun 18, 2021 8:38 pm

If a power/ability has an effect that triggers off the use of Leap/Climb, that effect now instead triggers when the character is given a MOVE action.

- Since Leap/Climb is now a passive effect, this clarification allows characters to still use their triggered effects that used to trigger off of an activation of Leap/Climb.


If a power/ability has an effect that triggers off the use of Incapacitate, the effect now only triggers if you chose to use the optional effect of giving action tokens to all hit characters.

If a power/ability allowed the use of Incapacitate “as FREE”, the effect is now instead an effect that states “FREE: Make an attack using Incapacitate and must give action tokens.”

If a power/ability allowed the use of Incapacitate “at no cost” (either within an action or as part of a triggered effect), the effect is now instead an effect that states “Make an attack using Incapacitate and must give action tokens.”


- Since Incapacitate is an effect that triggers when making an attack, these clarifications allow older effects to function as close to original intent as possible.


If a power/ability has an effect that triggers off the use of Quake, the effect now only triggers if you chose to use the optional effect of targeting all adjacent opposing characters (even if there is only one target, you may still choose the optional effect).

If a power/ability allowed the use of Quake “as FREE”, the effect is now instead an effect that states “FREE: Make a close attack using Quake and must target all adjacent opposing characters.”

If a power/ability allowed the use of Quake “at no cost” (either within an action or as part of a triggered effect), the effect is now instead an effect that states “Make a close attack using Quake and must target all adjacent opposing characters.”


- Since Quake is now an effect that triggers when making a close attack, these clarifications allow older effects to function as close to original intent as possible.


If a power/ability states that a character can use the Colossal Stamina ability, they are instead considered to have the following effect: "This character can be given a costed action even if it has two action tokens and does not receive an action token for that action. If you do, immediately after resolutions deal it 1 unavoidable damage and don’t clear its action tokens this turn."

- Since Colossal Stamina is now a retired ability, this clarification allows characters that can use it to function as close to original intent as possible.


If a power/ability states that a character can use the Ram ability, they are instead considered to have the following effect: "MOVE: ;Improved-M; ;Character; . Move in a direct path, then make a close attack targeting all opposing characters moved through this action, regardless of adjacency. Instead of normal damage, each hit character is dealt this character's printed damage value. Immediately after resolutions, deal this character 1 unavoidable damage for each character hit with the attack."

- Since Ram is now a retired ability, this clarification allows characters that can use it to function as close to original intent as possible.


If a character has PROTECTED: Penetrating/Psychic Blast or PROTECTED: Exploit Weakness, it can be targeted with attacks by characters that can use either of those powers but treats the penetrating damage dealt by those effect as non-penetrating damage instead.

If a character has PROTECTED: Incapacitate, it can be targeted with attacks by characters that can use that power but can't be given action tokens by the effect.

- Since Penetrating/Psychic Blast, Exploit Weakness, and Incapacitate are now passive effects, these clarifications allow the PROTECTED effect to function as close to original intent as possible against those powers.
