    At the point where it matters whether poison damage or ablaze damage happens first, it will be covered in the rulebook. If you can think of an example now, then we can update it. (We do not want to make the rulebook more complicated if it has no game impact.)

    The above example is the only one I can think of*: Imagine that it's a long-winded physical Meltdown game where Deathbone has several health buffs, and is poisoned and ablazed by the said allies during the same turn, and then several turns later comes the point where Deathbone is supposed to die due to one of those negative effects. If the players didn't make note of which allies caused those effects and in what order, they might not be able to tell for certain, who should take the damage from Deathbone's passive ability.

    (According to the following card-FAQ answer, I've reasoned that an ally who causes a negative DOT-effect is "responsible" for its damage as long as that ally remains on the field:)

    Another example of a situation where "which ally has done what" matters would be when one player has several Katrin The Shieldmaidens in play, and several other allies, and each Katrin has buffed a different ally. Players need to have indicators of which Katrin buffed which ally, so that when one of the said allies die, they'll know which Katrin can reuse her ability. (I also hope such indicators will be introduced to the digital game at some point.)

    If you are sure that a certain aspect of the game mechanics cannot have an impact in any possible situation during a physical game, then naturally you don't have to cover it. The question is, can you cover all the possibilities so that you can say for sure? Again, when new cards are introduced, the situation might change, so in the end, it might be a safer bet to cover "too much" rather than "too little". MTG has a basic and comprehensive rulebook - the same kind of division might suit Shadow Era as well, if it seems that a lot of detailed information needs to be explained somewhere without compromising the way the current Official Rulebook is.

    EDIT: * = (Well, I can think of more examples, but they always involve Deathbone getting the two DOTs from different sources.)

    GDC can we expect Lore to be released aswell? I mean i always like to know the story behind my games and the story behind characters, synergys stuff like that which can be added through card descriptions and lore. The prologue looks nice, is there a story we can look at? or look forward to?
