Not deleting all the gear seemed to work better.
Is there a way to re-deal someone an initiative card? Say, you forget to take them off hold so they get an Ace when they shouldn't?
I found the GM token and added a new skill to the properties, but when the players go to roll it they get a message asking them for the value of the skill. Did I do something wrong in setting up a new skill? Perhaps the token had already been created and then I added the skill? Is there a way to fix that?
I'm not sure if the card is placed in the discard pile when you delete them from the Init Control panel. I would have to check. If it does, then you should be able to re-deal the initiative card but I would have to check to make sure that doesn't blow anything up. Seems like I've checked and it doesn't but that was over a year ago.
The second bit sounds like a bug. I'll check it when I get home. For now, you can add it to the main skills area if you have a game soon.
