Won the encounter, but received a penalty card

Postby Vomitus » Fri Jul 12, 2013 12:21 am

I won the encounter, but when I went to draw 5 out of the 10 bonus cards, expecting a bonus, I received a -2 health point reduction, then a +2 hp bonus, then a +1 hp bonus.

Not sure why I received a -2 hp bonus when I won the encounter. Is this a bug?

Also, my character died with 3 hps and 30 sanity points. He did not draw the instant death card either.

Am I missing something or this just another bug? :?

The penalty card is not a bug, at least if you were using psychic powers in that encounter. A change to the way psychic pushback is calculated now allows bonuses to become penalties if you generate large amounts of pushback. See the patch 1.05 notes. If you're not playing with pyschics, then it's a bug!

The sudden death question I can't answer. Sounds like a bug.

Yep,I used psychic powers. I wonder if the game first subtracted 2 hp bringing me to 0 hp, thus killing me and then added the 3 hp bonus. Since I was already dead, it didn't matter that I had 3 hp.

I guess the bonus and penalty cards do not net together, but add or subtract against hp or sanity in the order they are picked.

I'll check into this. You should have gotten a +1 health point gain when all was said and done. Thanks
