This is a neater way of storing my playtests for my customs that I want other people to be able to see. I mostly intend on posting about units that I'd like to submit to the SoV.

Game Summary:
The predators rushed outwards to nab height on Masha, crippling him early on before he was able to move into position (and while his surrounding Samurai were in the process of moving into place). He managed to get in one attack from height (blocked) thanks to his six move, but fell the next turn once Sujoah joined the Wyvern. Sujoah then took a rigorous beating from the Tagawas, disengaged, and limped over to Tomoe Gozen to kill her in one Poison Sting (3 successful rolls for poison damage are terrifying). The Kozukes managed to do him in the next turn, leaving only many spiders to deal with the three Unique Samurai Squads. The spiders somehow managed to kill an Izumi and a Kozuke, and a Tagawa fell to Lava Field Damage, leaving all three squads crippled. The spiders still couldn’t do anything to stop them, though.

Usefulness of Powers:
Normal Defenses:
(1/3) against (2/5) from a Wyvern
(1/3) against (4/5) from a Wyvern
(2/3) against (3/5) from Sujoah (killing blow)

Normal Attacks:
(2/6) against (2/4) from a Wyvern (blocked)

Awakened Fear and False Slumber were never activated. The only attacks in Masha’s aura were by heroes, and the opponents had no range.

Additional Comments:
Spiders with +2 Move and Sujoah will ruin just about any developing army’s day, guaranteed. The Samurai simply didn’t have the time to get into position before Masha and Tomoe Gozen were assassinated, but they managed to punish the predators for overextending and still win the game overall.
