I don't think we should read the spoiler unless Vytron has already been found. If patzer wants us to, though, then that's fine.

Re: Never-Ending Rumble [Signups are always open]

Upon re-reading, I can see that Lawrencelot's interpretation of infected is perfectly reasonable, and so Lawrencelot certainly shouldn't be disadvantaged as a result. I like the current wording, though, so it's not worth changing it to remove the ambiguity.

It would be an exceptionally badly balanced power if that were the case. So I hope it doesn't work like that. I certainly intended it not to. If other players want it to work like that, though, I can live with being overruled.
