"Visceral Movement" was originally a pun placeholder name.
His actions are so well practiced and precise they border superhuman muscle memory, gut - visceral.
His actions also spread guts everywhere and deal with attacking, visceral

Today is Friday, so I'll playtest tonight.

I've been thinking about Master Assassin and think Triple Attack should probably be the solution. It would reduce card complexity and not break theme. John Wick switches his targets depending on situation. I like the stick and move of it.

But I'll play tonight with Master Assassin and follow up my thoughts.

I'll also get back to member write ups above

MASTER ASSASSIN

When John Wick attacks a figure, he may attack two additional times. He may only choose different targets if the figure is destroyed. John Wick can't attack destructible objects this way.

Sounds good.

Thought
 
What about?

Quote:

MASTER ASSASSIN

When John Wick attacks, he may attack up to 2 additional times. If the figure targeted by the previous attack is not destroyed, he must target that figure for an attack, if possible. John Wick may not use Master Assassin on destructible objects.
I'm kinda stealing wording from the Nakita Agents Smoke Powder (the only power I know for sure references targeting), Tactical Switch, and Life Drain.

~Dysole, spelling it out more because again while we all know what is meant she's not actually sure if "changing targets" is a defined Scape term


EDIT: Actually might have found a different power to crib off of.

MASTER ASSASSIN

When John Wick attacks, he may attack up to 2 additional times. He must target the same figure with each attack unless that figure is destroyed. John Wick may not use Master Assassin on destructible objects.
Swapping out Smoke Powder and Tactical Switch wording for some of the wording used from Saber Storm

Re: Heroes of Fiction: Design Thread
 
Played a game just now against a random Army, Marro Cavalry: All Large figures, so John Wick's anti-Medium powers didn't come into play. But it didn't matter because he annihilated 495 points without getting touched.

The locking on targets is needlessly complicated and doesn't solve the issue with this figure.

If I may return to my first draft suggestion:
Quote:

MASTER ASSASSIN
After attacking, John Wick may attack one additional time for each opponent's figure who is adjacent to him.
Is TACTICAL MOVEMENT used anywhere else? We could use that in replace of VISCERAL MOVEMENT

Approval
 
I like both of those powers. Tactical Movement is not moved anywhere else and I feel it is very on theme.

~Dysole, updatingly

I like where this has gone. Here is the updated car with the new wording.

If everyone is in agreement I think it is time to vote. If so he has my :thumbsup:

I would reorder the powers with Boogeyman first, then Tactical Movement, then Master Assassin and Human Shield.

Then it goes in order of your turn with movement powers first, then attack, then defense.

Wording
 
I do think Tactical Movement should be

John Wick may attack before, after, or at any point during his movement.

There's not really a good scape analog but it's what is used in C3G and I think it's a concise wording.

We want him to have to stop if he uses Boogeyman right?

That depends; do we want another Kumiko?
