  1. Two hand a single handed weapon

    @Deatheux You can do all of the things you just listed. You just have to pay the stamina cost for each, and each attack is treated as a separate roll. So you need to overcome the enemy defense with each roll. However, the question this thread was about is asking if you can use one single-handed weapon but hold it with both hands (like in the video game) to increase the damage. Currently it's not in the rule book, so people are home brewing their own ideas to use it.
  2. Squirtis is correct. It's also worth noting that if you fail the Dodge roll and the attack that hits you has a Push component you'll be pushed from the NEW node, not the starting one.
  3. The Shift is optional. You can't make an attack if you're out of range, (Attacks always require a valid target) however if the Shift occurs before the die roll on the card, you could use the Shift to get into range.
  4. You were correct. The player gets to choose which arc they are pushed to. They just have to choose a node that is still adjacent to the wall. If they were in a corner when this happened they could choose a node adjacent to either wall.
  5. I'm not sure who or what you're referring to here, but you do indeed have to spend souls to level up or purchase items from the Treasure deck.
  6. If you're holding two weapons each attack is treated as a completely separate attack, so you don't combine dice or anything like that. That means you can attack two separate targets, provided they are both in range. Bear in mind you can't move to a new node between these two attacks unless a game ability allows for it, like the Berserk charge or a weapon with a Shift move.
  7. Armor Sets

    I'm not a huge fan of the poses they chose, but at the same time I'm not going to complain about receiving them. I never intended to use them to replace the player model. I figure if someone gets an armor set they just get the relevant cards and can stand the mini next to their dashboard if they like, as a reminder of how it looks.
  8. No apps yet that I'm aware of. For the time being I'd just take a picture of the character boards. You could do the same with the tiles if you still need the layout, I suppose. I guess the Inventory would have to be stored separate from the Treasure deck, but that would make setup easier anyway.
  9. Range on spells?

    The spell cards have the range listed on them, just like ranged weapons do.
  10. Too few orange dice in the core set

    Yeah, you just have to reroll one die and add the results. There's too few of all the dice, in my opinion. I'd buy another set or two of dice in a heartbeat if they ever offered them separate.
  11. No tiles with either set.
  12. Dark Souls card game announced

    It's worth noting the Voucher announcement stated it would be usable for Dark Souls the Board Game related items. They may or may not allow it to be used for the card game. I think I'd seek clarification on that matter if that's the route you're thinking of taking.
  13. Dark Souls card game announced

    Yeah, I'm going to be all over that. I already pledged for everything else, so I was anticipating not adding anything now. So much for that!
  14. The distinction here really only matters when you're being attacked by a boss that's 1 or more nodes away. If you're being pushed by a boss because of movement any adjacent node is, by default, farther away. However, if you're 1 node away and the boss attacks you with an attack that pushes, you cannot choose to move onto the boss' node. You must move farther away from the boss. (Or at least, not move closer in the case that you cannot move farther away.)
  15. Outrider Knight - Frostbite

    Damage doesn't have to occur to inflict a status. However, damage DOES have to occur in order to trigger Bleed after it is applied.
  16. @alxndrhll Someone posted the following picture in the FB group and asked how to resolve the actions: Now, if I interpret this as written I'd do it thus: The boss shifts left without turning, pushing anyone he encounters. Boss then targets Nearest Player without turning, up to Range 1. Boss ALSO hits everyone in the Front Arc up to Range 1. This seems like a very unusual behavior, but not impossible to resolve. However, the question has arisen if this is actually the intended function for this card, or if one or more symbols is a misprint. Any chance for clarification?
  17. Thanks for your input on this! I've been hoping it was a typo as it makes the attack very unlikely to hit otherwise.
  18. Outrider Knight - Frostbite

    Status effects are applied to any character that is hit, even if the damage is blocked entirely. The only way to avoid the status is to Dodge the attack. I don't recall the card you're referencing, but if the attack is a node/arc attack then all players in the attack area would be subject to the Frostbite unless they dodge. If it's not a node/area attack then only the targeted player would be in danger of the Frostbite.
  19. Additional Souls Pledges do include the Stretch Goals.
  20. Do bosses reset?

    You go through the entire Boss Encounter set up each time you enter the encounter, which includes building the deck. Per page 28, the Boss deck is actually built after you place the boss, place the party and assign aggro. (Though I'm sure many players do this before-hand, to speed up the boss set-up.)
  21. That's how I've been playing it as well.
  22. Make sure you pay attention to where the Shift icon appears in the "text" of the ability. If it appears before the dice then you move before the attack and can consider the Shift as part of your range calculation. If the Shift icon appears after the dice, then you may shift after attacking, but you must already be in range before rolling the dice. Also, the Shift is always optional. You don't have to move if it would move you out of range.
  23. Dancer re-pose

    Nice work! I love that paint job, especially the cloak.
  24. Yeah, luck of the draw is a big factor, for sure. I like that you tried it with what you got, though. I think part of the fun of the game is in coming up with unorthodox builds and making them work. Obviously not every game will be a winner, and I believe that's a good thing.
  25. @Sullvar Yeah, those Silver Knight Swordsmen are no joke for starting players. If you're playing solo, don't forget you start with 16 souls. I'd spend as many as it takes to find a decent upgrade or two then level to use them if needed.
