That card looks awesome!

So where are we at with our current design? Are we generating ideas from source material?

As I stated before, Ariel uses a magic shield against ranged attacks; perhaps this can be modeled as something like the Phantom Knights' evasion power. She also grew up with an education in old-world (pre-cataclysmic) technology, which might give her an edge in battling Soulborgs or help her boost friendly Soulborgs in some way. I would have to do more research to figure to remember what else she can do.

Edit: Here is a good place to start.

Watched a bit of Ariel on YouTube

She throws magic balls which could be simply represented as normal range attack

She has levitated allies
She has healed members who have no order markers
She has created magical bridges

It's going to be a challenge. You're right that her magic attacks are best represented by a normal attack.

Anything that makes her work better with Thundarr and Ookla would also be cool.
Some sort of team defensive power representing shield magic.
Maybe a binding power that stops attacks.
The bridge power would be cool but that may be hard to translate.

Ariel
Thundarr the Barbarian
Television
Aquilla

Human
Unique Hero
Sorceress / Princess
Headstrong / Brilliant / Confident ???
Size: 4-5

Life: 4-5
Move: 5
Range: 5
Attack: 3
Defense: 2


BRIDGE / LEVITATION SPELL
When Ariel or a friendly figure within 5 clear spaces of Ariel moves, they may ignore all terrain effects and and do not roll for falling damage.

ENERGY FIELD
Ariel and any adjacent friendly Barbarians or Gladiators roll one additional die when defending against a non-adjacent attack.

ENERGY RINGS
When an opponent's figure in 5 clear sight spaces, attacks Ariel or a friendly Barbarian or Gladiator within 5 clear spaces of Ariel, you may reveal an X order marker on this card and the attacking figure's turn immediately ends.


Rough idea. Could swap out any of these for a teleportation power or a scrying (look at OMs) power or some sort of animation power.

That is an awesome draft.

My reactionary input would be asking why Aquilla over Ullar as it seems we have more focus pocus type stuff over there.

Stats look good and in line for most magic slingers.

The abilities seem like theyd be fun. Wording on the magic rings looks like it could use tweaking, but I like the idea of still allowing movement but stopping an attack.

Re: Heroes of Fiction: Design Thread
 
Thanks. A bit difficult for me to shift back to classic meta. Had to use some restraint on the stats.
Open to any other suggestions, lots of possibilities.
Ookla and Thundarr are Aquilla so it would be weird for her to be anything else.
Could make her power hooks based on Aquilla instead of Barbarian and Gladiator. Not sure how that shakes out either way.

Re: Heroes of Fiction: Design Thread
 
Thundarr bonds with Aquilla heroes so that's a no-brainer.
