Chandra Nalaar, Pyromancer
Gideon Jura, Combat Mage
Jace Beleren, Mindmage
Liliana Vess, Necromancer
Nissa Revane, Animist
Blazing Firecats (squad of 3)
Blighted Reavers (squad of 3)

Because they're all from the first box. Which is the one I have, but also, it seems to me that we should be doing one box at a time. Or are all of these from the same box? I confess I don't really know what I'm doing at this stage. :)

edit: Also, if I messed up and some of these are not the first box, please someone tell me so I can change my vote.

The Ghoul Vanguard is not from the first set, though it's being paired with the Restless Zombies which are, to make a 4-figure Squad.

I am surprised that the organizers of this project are not treating the boxes as separate Master Sets. As I saw it, the chief advantage of this whole endeavor over the C3V/SoV model is that now a person would be able to buy one thing and be ready to go. And now I'm being forced to vote without even knowing (until I look it up) which mini comes from which box, and it turns out it doesn't matter because at least one squad combines minis from different boxes anyway.

I am quite surprised.

Anyway, I will change my vote to bring it in line with lefton4ya , who I think sees it the same way. That way our votes, made for the same reason, will matter a bit more.

Chandra Nalaar, Pyromancer
Gideon Jura, Combat Mage
Blazing Firecats (squad of 3)
Rhox Veterans (squad of 3)

Blazing Firecats

Chandra Nalaar, Pyromancer

The cheif reason we are using all 3 boxes in one set is simple: There ain’t much in the first box, no terrain in the second, and barely anything the third. If you guys want I can update the lists to include where the units come from, but I highly suggest getting a copy of each box.

Also, there were no 2 or 4 man squad options. We’re trying to get as much variety as possible in this set.

@Leo Ultra, Jaur0n, White Knight, Ronin: Please make sure your votes are clear and both bold and red so they will be counted.

Everyone: votes are due by tonight!!!

Edit: Quoting Leo because it won't tag for some reason:
Red lefton4ya , I agree with that reasoning.

May 23rd, 2019, 07:36 AM
We have 4 winners!

I tallied everyoneís votes (except Leo Ultraís because he never actually said what his vote was :confused:), and I appreciate everyone who remembered to toss in Bold Red. Itís easier to skim the thread tallying. :)

But, the real winners are the people today because the next pod will be...

The clear fan favorite: Blazing Firecats! (12 tallies)
The second best: Chandra Nalaar! (8 tallies)
Third member: Gideon Jura, Combat Mage! (5 tallies)
And finally: Ob Nixilis! (5 tallies)

Of the winners, 3/4ths comes from the first box, so it looks like first box-onlyís will have something they want to work on right away!

Stay tuned, Iíll be getting up the second vote later (voting for whoever you guys want to work with Lead Wise). After that will be filling the pod with 5 volunteers, first come first in. Hopefully we can generate enough excitement to get to a second pod! :mrgreen:

flameslayer93
May 23rd, 2019, 09:55 AM
Next up, who do you guys want to work with? Hopefully everyone has had a chance to see the design angles of our team of Project Leads from the first pod 0 designs.

We do have two other people who are already interested in becoming Leads as well so if they PM me or another Lead I’ll add them to the list.

The Choices:
All Your Pie
Astroking112
Capsocrates
Flameslayer
Necroblade
Pumpkin King

Anyone can vote, and votes are due May 29th! I’ll update the OP when I have a chance. :)

Excellent! Our winners All Your Pie and Scytale have been chosen to lead Pod 1. Either gentlemen is free to begin a main thread for Pod 1 and start taking volunteers. Then, feel free to get the ball rolling on your 4 designs!

:excited:

If there ends up being enough interest, we can start another Pod up after Pod 1 has had time to flourish, but thereís no rush yet. :)

Thatís all that on the ballot for now! Good luck Pod 1!

April 25th, 2020, 11:04 AM
#1 Jace Beleren, Mindmage
#2 Illusionary Projections (squad of 3)
#3 Kiora, the Rising Tide
#4 Sorin of the Eternal Thirst

My top two picks are definitely Jace and the Illusions. Assuming we're allowed to, I could be convinced to change my vote (can we do that before the vote is finalized?) for the other two units depending on the other pod members' preferences. Personally, I'd also like to see some soft synergy developed between Liliana and the Zombies, so in my mind it would be ideal (though by no means necessary) for them to be in the same pod.

flameslayer93

Yeah, you can edit your vote (and I encourage you too! it makes it so much easier to tally).

Soft synergy between Lily and the Shades sounds like a good opportunity.

Soft synergy between Lily and the Shades sounds like a good opportunity.

Would we allowed to potentially include like the ghouls/shades with lilana vess, and the illusions w/jace as one character potentially? (I've designed cards already for all those figures, including one where lilana summons ghouls, and jace can generate illusions.)

So a vote could technically be jace/illusions, lilana/shades, sorin, and the water chick whose name just escaped me while I'm typing this lol! :P

Just a thought!

Owlman
April 25th, 2020, 03:27 PM
Also my top 2 I wanna see are sorin and kiora, or sorin and lilana. (Was thinking lilana and sorin could be esenwein clan members, or potential rivals!)

flameslayer93
April 25th, 2020, 03:39 PM
Since theyre still individual units, its probably best to just count each unit as one. Especially because there are two shadow zombie squads that Liliana could potentially play well with.

April 25th, 2020, 04:16 PM
Since theyre still individual units, its probably best to just count each unit as one. Especially because there are two shadow zombie squads that Liliana could potentially play well with.

I agree. Also, just because two units are closely connected synergistically doesn't mean that they'll take less time to design and playtest. As we've seen with the other pods, just bringing four units to completion is a lengthy endeavor, and I don't want to bite off more than we can chew here.

April 25th, 2020, 05:28 PM
#1 Arlinn Kord, Goldnight Outcast
#2Arlinn Kord, Moon-Blessed
#3 Sorin of the Eternal Thirst
#4 Rhox Veterans

I think it would be awesome to have an actual transforming Lycanthrope for Arlinn. Sorin could make a neat Vydar vampire or Vlad the Impaler type hero (can't remember who's idea it was, but I like it). Rhox I just think are cool.

Amarant
April 30th, 2020, 01:22 AM

Zetsubo- I think we talked about Vlad/a historical figure in the discord. I like the idea.

Astroking112
May 2nd, 2020, 01:26 PM
Alright, that's all of the votes! Here's the breakdown:

Top 4
Sorin of the Eternal Thirst got 4 votes
Nahiri, Fury in Stone got 2 votes
Kiora, the Rising Tide got 2 votes
Rhox Veterans got 2 votes

Remaining votes:
Liliana Vess, Necromancer got 1 vote
Jace Beleren, Mindmage got 1 vote
Illusionary Projections got 1 vote
Arlinn Kord, Goldnight Outcast got 1 vote
Arlinn Kord, Moon-Blessed got 1 vote
Avacyn got 1 vote
So it looks like Pod 2 will be working on Sorin, Nahiri, Kiora, and the Rhox Veterans! In keeping with the method that we used for Pod 1, it's time to vote on two Pod Leaders. Here's a list of the available PLs for Pod 2:
Pumpkin_King
flameslayer93
NecroBlade
Astroking112
As a brief reminder, they will officially be joining Pod 2 in order to help coordinate visions, direct discussion, maintain the threads, and guide the units to the next steps when prudent.

Amarant, Captain Stupendous, Owlman, Zetsubo, and Confred, please cast your votes for two PLs in BOLD RED font. Once they are chosen, we're ready to begin Pod 2 officially. :)

Owlman

Pumpkin_King and flameslayer93, whenever you each get the chance, please set up the various Pod 2 threads (main discussion thread and a design thread for each of the units) so that you have control over the main posts. Once that's done, all of the Pod 2 members are good to start designing. :)
