Quest Coin into the Quest Pool (part of the victory condition).
 Some Roaming Threats are needed to achieve Story Tokens.
 Roaming Threats are triggered as soon as a player Scouts a tile with the Skull Icon. Randomly
draw a Roaming Threat card and follow the instructions on the card.
 A Roaming Threat can also be triggered by a player activating the Dungeon tile in Camelot.
 The player that drew the threat places the tokens on the board (Merlin’s power only chooses

Scouting: Players scout ahead revealing Albion Realm Tiles as they move. You can scout multiple
tiles in a turn but the character must move into the most recently scouted tile to continue
scouting.
Cannot Scout a new tile if there are no more Movement Points.
If an Albion Realm Tile is scouted and reveals a total dead end before all of the tiles in the stack
are revealed for that region, draw another tile and then reshuffle the dead end tile back into the
stack. No region may be closed off from travel until all of the tiles have been revealed for that
particular region. This is only a rule in effect if the tile drawn makes further travel a mulligan.
Players may scout a tile then move away but cannot scout another new tile the same turn until
they move into the scouted tile.
Scouting does not take away Movement Points, however, you must have at least 1 point to
continue scouting.
Enemy tokens use the “M” count on their Roaming Threat card for their movement.
Enemy tokens have Movement Commands;
o Aggressive – they will move their full move toward the closest player and attack. If two
players are equal distance then roll off using a d6 and decide.
o Hold – The token will stay on a particular tile and will not move.
o Specific Tile/Objective – The token will proceed to the specific tile on the board. That
particular token will have an effect that will happen when the token achieves its goal.
The players will move the token the most efficient route possible, even if it avoids a
combat with a player.
11 – Starting Equipment Cards (Spear Icon)
 These cards are basic Weapons and Armour that all characters start with.
12 – Artifact Cards (Unique Cross Icon)
 These are unique Weapons, Armour and Special cards that are gained when players complete

14 – Fate Dice
 Six sided dice which contain Attribute Icons.
 These are rolled when attempting to complete a challenge that requires an Attribute Roll.

character board. Each symbol rolled with the elected attribute counts as 1 success except for
the Mark of Mana which always counts as 2.
