Can my lord jump over or walk past an opposing beast?

No. If your lord touches a space occupied by an opposing beast at any time during your move, you will be devoured and eliminated from the game.

What if someone parks their beast by my lord’s exit?

No problem. Just send your beast (or talk someone else into sending their beast) to eat that player’s lord. Once the lord is devoured, the beast is eliminated from the game and will no longer guard your exit.

Why can’t my beast stay in the game after my lord has been devoured?

Your beast has nothing left to live for. Let them go to mourn in peace.
