“ An Attack is your hero attempting to inflict some kind of direct harm — that is, deal damage — to another character, whether it’s physical (a series of punches), emotional (mocking taunts), or mental (psychic blasts). The amount of damage dealt by an Attack is determined by the number on the effect die, which is usually the Mid die. Some powers or abilities allow you to use a different die for the Attack’s effect die. Any character or object with a Health rating or a minion die can be the target of an Attack. (If you’re trying to break an object that doesn’t have a Health rating — smash through a steel door, etc. — that’s an Overcome action.)”
Ok so there appears to be some confusion on what this means, particularly with the phrase
“Any character or object with a Health rating or a minion die can be the target of an Attack”
I read it as that you cannot attack yourself with a basic attack action, and that the second phrase is just clarifying the potential targets of attacks, but not as to contradict the first part of the explanation.
Certainly abilities do allow you to attack yourself and so trigger certain effects but I have interpreted that to mean you actually need those abilities to attack yourself, it’s not a default to do so.
How do people interpret this?
