Clarification on Allies
 
I was asked how allies work, and I want to be sure I was correct in my answer:

If you commit an Ally to a fight, then all damage is directed his way. If there is more than enough damage (after any defense from Loot) to squish the Ally, then any excess is lost and does not hit the Hero.

That's mostly correct. All the damage not prevented by abilities or blocked by Weapons is dealt to the Ally. Even if the Ally only has 2 Life, it takes all 5 damage (for example).

It's a very fine distinction, but necessary.

I'd refer to Section E as well... E.1.2 and E.1.3 explain what Devin pointed out and clarify further if multiple Allies are committed.

If an ally takes damage but not enough to squish does the damage stay on the ally forever or does it get removed at the next warm up phase.

I would like that information also!

The damage stays on the Ally.

So it returns to the hoard with the damage counters?

Yes. Remember that Allies don't go to the stash; if they survive a fight, they return to the hoard immediately (but are still zapped and cannot be committed again that turn unless something is able to unzap them).

OK, just to clarify (sorry). Both allies and weapons are one use per turn only. When committing them to a fight you are Zapping them and they remain zapped until your next warm up phase when they become unzapped.

The exceptions to this are if the Allies/Weapons have an unzap ability (for example Machine Bow pay 1 gold to Unzap or Repeat offender roll 4-6 to unzap) .

That's the way I understand 'em (unless they get squished)
