Recently we have noticed that the administration of item uses has become an issue for referees. This includes finishing late and not having time to check items, forgetting, players not bringing item cards with them, and other issues.

As such items will no longer be issued with uses. All items from dungeons will have a blow up date. However in recognition of this change all new items will have a 2 year blow up date.

Characters that have items with uses should bring them to the desk to be converted to a blow up date. They will gain a 3 month blow up date per use remaining, to a maximum of 18 months.

For items from the “Destroyer” myths that were issued with uses they will be re-issued with an 18 month blow up date (as per the other items) with appropriate re-costing for extensions.

Where a character is making an item using the make system for THEMSELVES they can continue to make it with uses (8). However if the individual is found to abuse this then they will be blow up (without a rebirth) and never be allowed to engage in the item making system as any character again.

Additionally the management reserves the right to allow irregular players to become “uses” players, where all items are issues as uses. This will be rare and based on their limited play time and the fact the management believes they will never seek to take advantage of it.

To be clear this change is due to a small number of people taking advantage of uses, including deliberately not getting them crossed off or saying “Well the ref didn’t ask”. It is also to try and reduce pressure on refs at the end of each day.

As part of this we would also encourage refs to check armour cards and cross of uses at the start of the day when players hand over their battle boards.

We've looked at the comments, and in light of them will delay the rule coming in while we discuss the feedback.

We are aware that resolving the issue will create some problems, but it is very difficult to police the crossing off of uses from items and we honestly believe it isn't working at the minute, and in some cases it appears players are taking advantage of it. It is also very difficult to prove.


If anyone has any further idea's on how to ensure the rules around uses aren't abused we're happy to look at them, and the thread has already offered some ideas.
