General FAQs

Are there digital versions of the decks available?
A: Currently we do not sell digital versions of the decks. But if you look on our discord group or email us we have digital versions of decks we are currently in playtesting that we are happy to share with you.
Does this game require specific models?
A: No, the game is completely model agnostic. You can use whatever model range you want to, we have some suggestions of what models might suit the specific decks on our info page.
Are X models historical enough for the game?
A: That question is up to you and your opponents. However the design teams feeling is that the first priority is to enjoy the game. The models don’t have to be particularly accurate or even be historical. Many players use FOV to play their favourite fantasy settings. However on the reverse side nobody is obliged to play with you either. We suggest the best course is to follow your own taste and be as respectful of other players as possible.

Rules Questions

Note – Narrative VS. Challenge Mode

In Force of Virtue the first step of playing a game is to decide whether you are playing in narrative or challenge mode. Narrative mode is for creating a story together as players through both players trying to win, challenge mode is about two forces going head to head in a no holds barred test of generalship. These FAQs are meant for clarifying rules for the purpose of challenge mode. In narrative mode players are empowered to resolve an uncertainty as makes the most sense for the story in that moment and creates the most fun for the players.

What happens if a models is not within range of a Capo with unburnt virtue at the end of the round?

A: If a model ends a round with no unburnt virtue or not within command range of a Capo with unburnt virtue the model is removed from the game and counts as having fled.

Not all the models are inside the capo range so who can be involved in the fight?

A: If a model isn’t within command range of the Capo you are activating the action the model can’t be included.

Mixing models with different amount of Virtue dice or leftover actions and Faith

This action includes two veteran squad and two capos. The blue capo (star) declares a fight action. The three veterans have 2 dice available for the action from a previous move action but have one faith leftover.

The blue Capo will need to choose his own virtue dice for the combat. What happens with the veterans with the free movement dice?

The veterans would be able to choose either virtue that they have from the move or the ones from the Capo. If the Capo spends at least three virtue dice on the action the veterans could choose to spend an extra faith in order to add one of them to the two dice from movement to make it a total 3 dice action.
