[top]Clarifications

  • If Lantern Ring is active and one of your character dice attacks, you should check to see how many energy symbols in your Reserve Pool match that character. You'll choose a target player, and they will take 1 damage for each matching symbol. The source of the damage is your character(s). Examples:[1]
    1. Lantern Ring is active. A Guy Gardner die (a Fist character) attacks. He is the only attacking character die. The player who is attacking with Guy Gardner has 2 dice with Fist symbols showing in their Reserve Pool. One die shows 2 Fists, and the other die shows 1 Fist. Guy Gardner, when he attacks, deals 3 damage based on Lantern Ring.
    2. Lantern Ring is active. Two Guy Gardner dice (a Fist character) attack. They are the only attacking character dice. The player who is attacking with Guy Gardner has 2 dice with Fist symbols showing in their Reserve Pool. One die shows 2 Fists, and the other die shows 1 Fist. Each Guy Gardner, when he attacks, deals 3 damage based on Lantern Ring. A total of 6 damage could be dealt, 3 each to 2 target players.
    3. Lantern Ring is active. A Guy Gardner die (a Fist character) attacks, so does a Miri Riam die (a Bolt character). They are the only attacking character dice. The player who is attacking with Guy Gardner and Miri Riam has 2 dice with Fist symbols showing in their Reserve Pool, 1 die with Bolt symbols showing, and a die showing Wild (?). One die shows 2 Fists, another die shows 1 Fist, another shows 2 Bolts, and the Wild face on a Sidekick die is also showing. Guy Gardner, when he attacks, deals 3 damage based on Lantern Ring, Miri Riam deals 2 damage based on Lantern Ring. This results in choosing up to 2 different target players, dealing 3 and 2 damage for a total of 5. Guy Gardner would be the source of the 3 damage, Miri Riam would be the source of the 2 damage. Note: the Wild doesn't add to the damage characters benefiting from Lantern Ring deal at all.

  • Attacking characters affected by Lantern Ring are considered to have the ability. "Treat additional abilities from action dice as abilities on those characters. Those abilities can be ignored, prevented, and modified as if they were character abilities. If an effect would give a character die +2A and Overcrush, but that character dieís abilities are being ignored, it couldnít use Overcrush but would still get +2A. The attack bonus isnít an ability."[2]
