It might be better to make them uncommon. But do we want to let a small blob grow like in the movies or have them all be ochre jelly size.

Since we're trying to mimic the movie, it would be cool if we could mimic how it grew in the film. But if you're married to your original idea, it's cool. Just wanted to hear what you thought of this other idea.

Here's our current version. Thoughts from the peanut gallery?

I think the glacier is important, as it's cold. As for the latter part of the power, it gives an enemy the ability to use a "fire extinguisher."

As for unique vs. common, I was originally going for a larger blob that splits into smaller ones. Perhaps I can just have the small one have a chance of coming back when the large one is destroyed.

Here goes!

NASCENT THREAT
Valkryll

http://media.trollandtoad.com/produc...es/1013459.jpg
Ravenous Ooze

Ooze
Unique Hero
Devourer
Mindless
Small 2

Life 1
Move 4
Range 1
Attack 2
Defense 3

VILE GROWTH
When Nascent Threat destroys a figure with its normal attack, you may destroy it and place the medium The Blob on the space it previously occupied.

COLD WEAKNESS
The Blob may not move onto a snow or ice space or adjacent to a Glacial Mountain. If The Blob is attacked with a normal attack by an adjacent attacking figure on a snow space, roll two less defense dice.



GROWING TERROR
Valkryll

http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/intheworks_atg4.jpg
Ochre Jelly

Ooze
Unique Hero
Devourer
Mindless
Medium 4

Life 1
Move 5
Range 1
Attack 4
Defense 6

NASCENT THREAT
This Blob does not start the game on the battlefield.

VILE GROWTH
When this Growing Terror destroys a figure, you may destroy it and place The Blob on the space it previously occupied.

ENGULF 15
If Growing Terror wounds a small adjacent figure with its normal attack, roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 15 or higher, destroy the defending figure.

COLD WEAKNESS
The Blob may not move onto a snow or ice space or adjacent to a Glacial Mountain. If The Blob is attacked with a normal attack by an adjacent attacking figure on a snow space, roll two less defense dice.




THE BLOB
Valkryll

Put two Gibbering Mouthers together? I painted two red, and it sort of works.

Ooze
Unique Hero
Devourer
Mindless
Large 4

Life 1
Move 5
Range 1
Attack 5
Defense 7

THE RETURN?
The Blob does not start the game on the battlefield. If The Blob is destroyed, each time you take a turn you may roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 16 or higher, you may place Nascent Threat in your start zone.

ENGULF 15
You may add one to The Blob's range if the defending figure's base is no more than 3 higher or lower than The Blob's base. If The Blob wounds an adjacent small or medium figure with its normal attack, roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 15 or higher, destroy the defending figure.

COLD WEAKNESS
The Blob may not move onto a snow or ice space or adjacent to a Glacial Mountain. If The Blob is attacked with a normal attack by an adjacent attacking figure on a snow space, roll two less defense dice.

Re: Heroes of Fiction: Design Thread
 
I would really like to find a way to call them all The Blob, but it makes the wording for the growth mechanic wonky.

To get the full effect, you are going to have to draft all 3 into your army. The survivability on the smallest figure seems low with a defense of 3, making it less likely for you to get your points worth for the others. IMO, it needs a higher defense and/or some other mechanic to make it harder to kill.

The Blob would not distinguish between friend or foe, just try to absorb any nearby creature. Would an Engagement Strike style power be in order - one that affects all figures moving adjacent? Or a power that forces it to attack all adjacent figures? At least on the Large and maybe the Medium figures.

Engulf 15 needs a different name on either the medium or large size blobs.

Engulf 15
You may add one to The Blob (medium)'s range if the defending figure's base is no more than 3 higher or lower than The Blob (medium)'s base. If The Blob (medium) wounds an adjacent small or medium figure with its normal attack, roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 15 or higher, destroy the defending figure.

COLD WEAKNESS

Re: Heroes of Fiction: Design Thread
 
I have to digest this. It might be a very good way to get them to all be The Blob. I also like adding the "or ice" space; I thought it might be too much, but if everyone likes it, I'll go with it.

I have one of these on order - Large Water Elemental from the DnD Blood War set. I'm going to paint it to see how it would look as the large blob.

Re: Heroes of Fiction: Design Thread
 
I'm still here! I've just been awfully busy lately. Here is McHotcake's version with a minor change. I kept the addition of ice spaces to the Cold Weakness power. The one change was a typo under Realized Threat where I changed the word small to medium.

I think this is a good final version, if everyone else agrees. The ravenous ooze and gibbering mouther seem to work, and I really like the large water elemental for the large version.

Let me know if anyone has any more suggestions!
