Careful with that line of thinking, it's way too logical for N18!Regardless, a Juve is a Juve regardless of how they're acquired. So they would follow all the normal rules for Juves.
That's one of those things that has been semi-officially FAQed by one of the devs on social media (I can't remember if it was JTY or Andy Hoare). There was a thread about it somewhere on the forum, I'll try to fetch it.Do we know free armour is not treated the same?
There's a disagreement on how that armour is treated.
At this point, I'm not confident we'll get one. Let's hope they will do an update a few months after the Perils of the Underhive (or whatever its name ends up being) book is released to tackle the new issues this book will inevitably create, and they will use the opportunity to fix older issues.I wonder how long we'll have to wait to get an actual FAQ
From what we have heard so far, this shouldn't be the case, at least not with the upcoming Perils book. It will have updated Venator rules to overwrite the previous one, but those needed an update for N18 anyway, and everything else in the book will apparently be brand new (which doesn't mean there won't be any problem with it of course).I really, really hope they don't continue their previous practice of instead of giving us an FAQ, they just sell us a new book that repeats half the rules with slight tweaks.
It's taking the piss.
You can retire any fighter but not at any time. It can only happen during step 6.A of the post-battle sequence (after post-battle actions have been performed but before the gang visits the trading post, so you can sell or reuse the equipment of retired fighters right away)But can I at least get rid of that juve I don't want? I.e. can you still retire any fighter at any time?
Great, thanks!Note that you are not forced to recruit the free juve in the first place if you don't want to (Settlement states that you "may" recruit a Juve for free, so it's legal to roll (hoping for a free ganger on a double 6) and refuse to hire the free Juve if you get a single 6)
