Not to be confused with the Tilting Board.
The Balance is an obstacle that is sometimes encountered in the game.
The Balance is a pivoting beam with a Hanging Platform at each end. It is sometimes very sensitive and can rotate quickly when something or someone is on one of the two Hanging Platforms. It can be counter-balanced by placing an object on the opposing Hanging Platform. It is usually part of a puzzle that requires the heroes to get to something or cross something.
- All three heroes can jump the platforms of the Balance with careful timing.
- Thief: she can attach her Grapple Hook to the wooden platforms of the Balance.
- Wizard: he can place magical and non-magical objects on the platforms of the Balance. He can also move the Balance using his levitation Ability.
Important note: one of the most useful things the Wizard can do is to place a Plank across the two platforms. This will stabilise the Balance allowing the heroes to negotiate the Balance safely.
