Quote from: Grahame on February 11, 2020, 08:07:24 pmGary - how do the power dice translate into ordinary D6 eg how many of each symbol are there?
Grahame
Gary will have to correct me if I am wrong, but internet search says the following

Red
1-2 = blank
3-5 = 1
6 = 2

White
1 = blank
2-4 = 1
5-6 = 2

Blue
1-2 = 1
3-5 = 2
6 = 3
Each Vanguard Force has basic 3 red power dice and then add power dice according to units chosen. Eg the commander character might add a white or a blue or a couple of red. The main dice used upside of power are D8.

Banner of the Griffin no longer exists. The staff allows you to use each of your spells in each ranged phase. Only Danor has it and is why he has only a low spell output for each spell. The stats are on his list

Both are still in the BattleScribe latest Vanguard lists. But with no useful stats.

Apologies thought you meant KoW. Both these items are in the Equipment Cards Pack, which has a number of extra items over the book. I have the cards and stats;
Staff allows you to cast same spell twice in a turn. Banner is a once a game. Basically for the rest of the round friends pass all fallback checks.
When you print out the list BattleScribe usually prints the key rules after the list.

Just got the gamers edition and started working out my empire of dust list but I can't seem to locate the meanings of the keywords e.g. Carrion,djinn,construct etc which are listed at the bottom of the unit entries.

The 3rd edition lists include a number of keywords. Some are currently active (EOD) gives inspiring to the Revenant Champion, but qualifies it with 'Revenant only'. This means its only inspiring to those with the Revenant keyword. Others have no meaning but are built in for future proofing.
