Hello to the community,
I apologise if this question has been asked before: when calculating the damage score in combat, point 4 on page 8 says to roll a die and add one's brawn or magic score to the result, whichever is highest. This sounds non-optional.
Then later, in round 2 of the combat example, point 2 on page 10, it says Sir Hugo chooses to add his brawn score (which is indeed higher than his magic score). This definitely sounds like he has a choice.
So, is it mandatory to apply the highest score or can you choose? I haven't started the adventure yet, but I was just thinking there could be encounters that perhaps apply some sort of detrimental effect to the hero depending on which stat he uses.
I just wanted to make sure beforehand.
