    Maybe i didnt make myself clear... my wizard used the curse, took the damage and then it was shuffled into my warrior s deck. 2 of my character s took the damage, first the initial wizard, then my warrior drew the card... and died.

    There are two possible natural explanations.
    1) The curse ping-pongs between the enemy party and your party. This is how it always works, it's normal. In this case, the curse should have been shown to hit an enemy character before it was shuffled into your warrior's deck.
    2) The enemy party also had the curse on one of their items. Your warrior drew the curse coming from the enemy deck. Also in this case, the curse should have been shown to hit an enemy character before it was shuffled into your warrior's deck.

    Makes sense, but was on single player and didnt see the enemy activating it... thats why i mke this post, because looks like that the card didnt went on enemy party s deck... anyway i was reporting this "bug" trying to help because didnt affect the results and i already change the iten... but thanks for all the responses and good game and luck for all.

    The third possibility is your warrior also had a Traveling Curse in his deck.

    When someone uses Flame Spit, the log description calls it a Sizzling Bolt.

    When Purging Burst is used, the battle log only says '<name> purges an area', without specifying which characters were affected and what cards were discarded because of it. If you're not paying attention you'll have no idea what the Purging Burst just did.

    I noticed that when someone discards a card he dodged at the end of the round, the log entry says that the one who used it in the first place (before it was ducked) discarded it.

    A purges B.
    B ducks the purge. (But discards it)
    Log says: A discarded purge.

    Combat log text for Pickpocket seems bugged (thanks, MM #8).

    Item level does not affect when or where you can use it. Only power tokens limit when you can use an item. You can use level 21 items on a level 1 character (if the adventure allows using yellow power tokens).

    Thanks for sharing your concern, @UltraLoner.

    @Jarmo , though the availabilty of tokens is also determined by character level.

    Shrug It Off doesn't mention that it also discards your own handicaps, only mentioning enemy effects.

    Yeah, they changed all the purge effects, but didn't change all the wording.

    A few little things.

    Telekinesis' battle log says,
    <aia> *slides <ata> with <aia_herhis> mind.*​
    I know "slide" is technically true, but do you think this could be more intuitive if written as...
    <aia> *teleports <ata> with <aia_herhis> mind.*​

    Polearm Slash is either unintentionally negligent toward changing language trends, or intentionally a sexist jerk. I noticed this Armor reaction text during battle:
    <tta> uses his weapon to *absorb the blow*-​
    ...should be...
    <tta> uses <aia_herhis> weapon to *absorb the blow*-​

    While digging through Cards.csv to confirm what I noticed in battle, I saw that Blizzard Breath has a couple issues. First, the same negligent or jerk status for the card: $:^ P lol, second a missing space between "freezing" and clickable "breath!" .. er .. "breath!'" .. Okay, so while typing that very sentence, I noticed a third issue, a stray apostrophe. Therefore:
    <aia> blasts his freezing*breath!'*​
    ...should probably be (because I might be wrong about the significance of the apostrophe / single quotation mark)...
    <aia> blasts <aia_herhis> freezing *breath!*​
    Yes, yes, Blizkenripper is male, whatever. What happens when some poor little Dwarf Rogue manages to Duck that sucka? What about her feelings?

    And finally, perhaps the least significant of all, extra spaces. There are a lot of cards with extra spaces in their texts, often after full stop periods. Every now and then, this has actually affected my searching for something (much to my surprise at the time -- and even now I'm a bit amused that such an unimportant-seeming issue would actually affect something in-game). The easiest way to demonstrate this is to load up Cards.csv and search for " " (or even " ").
    As if you didn't know the answer for webpages already. $;^ J Yep, oh, look at that, default style for HTML whitespace is "Encumber ∞." ("Whenever you Space, subtract ∞ spaces from that Space. Does not reduce spaces below 1.") That leads me to my final thought here. In case double spacing between sentences is your habit, or in case you're torn between doing it or not (hence Cards.csv showing it a lot but not always), here's some info that might influence you to only single space from now on. (I normally don't link to Wikipedia to make such points, but the article on spaces between sentences has approximately a billion references cited, and it's a nice centralized place for info -- more convenient than searching Google to find said billion references cited.) In short, printed typesetting existed for centuries without the double and triple spaces -- a convention invented due to mechanical monospace typewriters -- and even then, that convention and its affirmed necessity were both tossed by the wayside shortly thereafter, yet admittedly there are still a few stragglers to this day, hence many public school typing classes teaching the opposite of many of their contemporary sources of typesetting standards.
    On a related note, I wonder when those CH wiki folks will ever fix the Encumber keyword. $¦^ }

    Not to mention the Dwarf Wizard that has the card in her deck to begin with in Caverns of Chaos.
