My EoD fleet arrived a week ago after taking a merry round around the world oceans and taking almost full 3 months since I ordered it at my local retailer. Thus, finally, I can launch myself fully into playing the game after 3 previous test games with orc and Basilean fleets borrowed from my friends. I am also looking forward to painting the ships, they look really lovely.
However, after reading the specific rules provided on the EoD cards I am quite a bit confused. My understanding is that the two fleet specific rules, Curse of Undeath and Light Oars, apply to all EoD ships. Is it really so. If it is, then why Light Oars is still enlisted on cards of some ships but not on all EoD ship cards. And if the rule needs to be enlisted on the ship card to apply, why there are no ships with Curse of Undeath. I guess listing the Light Oars on the Dust Chaser and Soul Hunter cards is redundant as all EoD ships get it but would like to have it confirmed. It also confuses me that the War Galley has the rule Oars (no Light there). Is it just an omission or does Oars provide something better than Light Oars?
