Diverse Dynamics

Post by Traveller-Jake » Wed Jul 17, 2019 2:31 pm

The :social+ :heroics for Diverse Dynamics is to get a Diversity token for each :species you control that count as 1 :vp each. The card only lasts until the end of the round.
I assume that means the :vp disappear with the card, so it's only useful when the action will give you enough :vp to win during that round or when you are forced to pay a :vp from a card effect like being a Subsidized Merchant that was the victim of Piracy during the round, correct?

If you had two in your hand, could you use them both for the :social+ :heroics in one round, despite being :limited? Or would you be limited to using them one per round?

The counters go on the card. When the card goes away, the counters go with it. If you lost a VP for some reason, when the card goes away, you will lose a number of VPs equal to the number of counters on the card. (You cannot end up below 0 VPs.)

The :limited on the card is specifically to prevent doing the expert level multiple times in a single round.

So it doesn't matter if you have two or three copies of a :limited :heroics in your hand, because you can only use one instance of a :limited action per round?

But I should say that :limited is "limited" (ha ha) to each individual ability. That is, only the ability with :limited is "locked" after you've used it.

This contrasts with titles like Game of Thrones where using a imited effect or playing a limited card stops you from generating another limited effect even on a different card.

Got it, thanks.

So the Diversity tokens on Diverse Dynamics count as :vp but only for the purposes of determining a win, or theoretically some card effect that benefits from having more :vp than an opponent. If you loose :vp during the round it's in play you loose "real" :vp you collected some other way; you can't spend Diversity tokens instead.
