Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings is a living Wargame, with rules changing to the better according to the design team’s directions and in tune with our community’s voice. As such, rules are clarified to better convey their meaning and purpose. These will be found under the FAQs section. You will notice that some of the FAQ questions are removed from this document as time passes. That is either because rules have changed to invalidate the question and/or response to it, or we have added clarifications to rules in the actual rulebook as per your suggestions.
Of course, as a company with responsibility to all the peoples of Eä, we employ beings of all Factions, including Ugr. We also use them as scapegoats for any errors you may find in the rules, and herein we provide corrections according to the Arcane Council of Factions. These will be found under the Errata section.
Also note that, while at times we post answers to questions online, this document is always in effect first and above any answers for any Tournaments or Matched play sessions. This document will be reviewed and changed accordingly at certain intervals; however, not all questions will be entered as they are not encountered often enough to warrant the “Frequently” part of the document.
