I have added this to the card.

What's the consensus from the group on this? I can see where it makes the timing more specific, but I'm not sure it needs to be added. Since I'm not sure, I'll follow SirG's suggestion if there are no other comments on the matter.

Between the two, I would go for choosing after the initiative roll. It makes the best use of the ability by having more of an idea of how things may unfold.

:duh:
Just realized I was reading SirG's post and putting my own spin on it in my addled brain. Completely skipped over the choice he was asking about and assumed "before rolling for initiative.."
Wake up, mac!

In the books/movie, would Eragon have to choose what "Energy Reserves" to use before going into battle or would he be able to use them as needed? If it's the latter, then "after rolling for initiative" would make more sense.

I agree it should be after initiative is rolled.

I agree. After rolling initiative makes more sense.

It seems like Eragon is just about done. Any final thoughts?

I think he's solid. :up:

Tcglkn, would you post a "final" draft?

Re: Heroes of Fiction: Design Thread
 
NAME = Eragon Shadeslayer
GENERAL = ULLAR

SPECIES = Half-Elf
UNIQUENESS = Unique Hero
CLASS = Dragon Rider
PERSONALITY = Driven

SIZE/HEIGHT = Medium 5

LIFE = 5

MOVE = 5
RANGE = 5
ATTACK = 3
DEFENSE = 5

POINTS = 180

DRAGON RIDER
At the beginning of the game, choose a Unique Large or Huge Dragon you control. For the remainder of the game, after moving the chosen dragon, if it began its move adjacent to Eragon, you may place Eragon on any empty space adjacent to the dragon. When Eragon is placed by this special power, he will not take any leaving engagement attacks.

ENERGY RESERVES
At the beginning of the round, after rolling for initiative, you may either add 2 to Eragon's Move or Range for the remainder of the round, 1 to Eragon's Defense for the remainder of the round, or remove one wound marker from this card.

BRISINGR
When Eragon attacks an adjacent figure with a normal attack, all skulls rolled count for one additional hit.

Minor edits - I think it's "official" to use the figure's full name in the text. I'd also like SirG to give this the once over for capitalization and wording check before I post the card.

You can conserve some words by just starting Energy Reserves with "After rolling for initiative . . . "

Since that always happens at the start of each round.
