On page 125, in the section Difficulty Level, I read: Thus you could place them against a gang of eight kobolds rolling nine dice (Nature 2, plus one for each additional kobold). This implies that monsters in a conflict roll dice equal to Nature plus one per helper. I can’t find this in the rules.
On page 72, Skills and Abilities per Action, I read: If you do not have that ability, you can use Nature or Beginner’s Luck. I assume this gets the monsters rolling Nature, because they have no skills or abilities. But on the same page I read: Helpers can only help if they have the ability or skill listed for the current action. If they do not, they can use the I Am Wise rule (if appropriate) or sit out this action.
Q1: Why do monsters get to help, presumably with their Nature helping Nature? Is this a special monster rule left out of the book?
Q2: If a player character is rolling Nature on their action, can other players help with Nature, or are players only allowed to help with their Nature if they have an appropriate descriptor?
