-Environ is a role for [[Challenge|Challenges]] in [[exploration|exploration]] [[scenario|scenarios]].

-Environs act at the beginning of the round, and their [[Action|Actions]] always target all [[PC|PCs]] in their occupied region ​(unless otherwise specified).

Scenario design will specify if an Environ is also able to target certain other Challenges. ​If an Environ occupies ​multiple regions, it can target PCs in all occupied regions on each turn; in most cases, however, this is implemented through multiple copies of an Environ instead, who each target individually (mostly to account for localized effects applied to the Environ).
  
-Environs have no EP totals and cannot be defeated through damage. ​The can be subject to [[Player'​s Guide Appendix A|conditions]], however, ​and they cannot generally play [[Reaction|Reactions]] to prevent this.+Environs have no EP totals and cannot be defeated through damage. ​They do have [[stat track|Stat Tracks]] and cannot generally play [[reaction|Reactions]] to protect their Tracks from PC Actions.
  
-For more information, see [[Player'​s Guide Chapter 5|Player'​s Guide Chapter 5: Exploration]] ​and [[DM's Guide Chapter 3|DM's Guide Chapter 3: Running Scenarios]].+Environs ignore rules for illumination and [[sight|visibility]]though targets may still suffer penalties if they cannot ​see the Environ.

 +Environs ignore water & swimming rules.

 +Environs start with a -1 in each Stat Track. 
 + 
 +Each Environ is worth half a PC of equal level. If an Environ occupies multiple regions, it counts as half a PC of equal level per occupied region.
