Default Rune Giant (Pathfinder)

1. It get +3 "against anyone with no Big items"
does it bonus stack, if both main player and helper have no Big item? (I think not, but it is unusual wording)

2. In its Bad Stuff I must roll a die and discard items on 1-3. If I have Chicken on my head and roll 0 (zero) is my item safe? (or it must be errated like 3,872 Orcs?)

No. Like other bonuses (+4 against Elves for example,) the bonus only counts once if either player involved has no Big Items.

It's not an errata, but it has been stated officially that when a card doesn't cover the particular number you rolled, but is clearly using a range, that you treat zeros and lower as 1; and 7s and higher as 6.

Clipper, do you have proof?

Andrew said as much. I'm not looking for any particular post right now since I'm heading out the door. For now, take it on my official say-so that Clipper is correct until such time as Andrew weighs in, or Clipper hunts down proof.

While I am not Andrew, I am a MIB and I remember discussions about this very thing. I do not have final word either, that comes from the Czar himself, but from the conversations and what I read in the FAQ, Bonuses (and penalties) DO stack.

This can be found in the FAQ of Munchkin.
Q. Do combat bonuses that monsters receive against Races or Classes stack? For example, if a monster gets +4 against Dwarves and +4 against Elves and I'm a half-Dwarf/half-Elf, does that monster get +8 in combat against me?
A. Unless it says otherwise on the card itself, monster combat bonuses do stack. This means that the above monster would be a +8. (Fair warning: this is a change from previous discussions, but it IS the official ruling henceforth.)
So that being said, it has been used in many of our games to prevent certain helpers from joining in (who wants to get help from a level 9 Elf anyway).

That's if a monster has separate bonuses. In the FAQ example, two elves don't make it +8.

Actually, the rules say (and have always said):

For the record, I'm also a MIB, but beyond that, I actually give out official responses for Munchkin as the Munchkin NetRep. So, I'm saying this officially: You're incorrect, for exactly the reason already given by Devin, who also gives official responses for Munchkin as Andrew's Hireling, and as documented in the rules.

Devin's and my status are documented in the thread entitled "READ THIS FIRST!" in this very forum, in case you were wondering.
