_________________________________________________________________

Character Bio - Franklin “Foggy” Nelson was born and raised in New York City. Foggy excelled in school; attending Columbia Law School. He became roommates with Matt Murdock. Matt protected Foggy against bullies and helped him study. During their first six months living together, Matt learned that Foggy would snore very loudly, leading Matt to compare him to a human foghorn. It was from that moment that his nickname stuck. After graduating, Matt and Foggy opened up a private law firm, Nelson and Murdock. They hired a secretary named Karen Page who Foggy developed a crush on. During their time practicing law together, the firm represented several well known clients, both good and bad, including the Fantastic Four, Leland Owlsley, Zebediah Kilgrave, and Namor the Sub-Mariner. – Marvel Database - Fandom Wiki (Earth-616) (2022).

NELSON AND MURDOCK
If there is at least one Order Marker on this Army Card and one Order Marker on an Army Card you control that has the identity of Matt Murdock, you may add 4 to your initiative roll.

CRIMINAL DISCOVERY
If you win initiative, you may immediately choose an unrevealed Order Marker on an opponent's Army Card and view it. If it is an "X" Order Marker, you may either:
• place that Order Marker on an Army Card you control that has the identity of Matt Murdock, or
• for this round, consider all figures for the chosen Army Card to have the Class of Criminal in addition to what is listed on that card.
At the end of the round, all Order Markers moved by this special power return to the player who controlled the Order Markers before they were moved.

Excited about this one. Seems you want to pair him with figures who want to know where Order Markers are placed (hello, Jessica Jones and Detective Chimp) and any figures that work off the class Criminal (Daredevil (I), Judged Dredd, Lt. Stone, etc.).

So nice soft synergies with the right faction here. :up:

Dredd, Anderson, Hershey, Foggy and a Brit Cit is 695. Also ultra competitive.
Maybe a squad of Beat Cops to protect Foggy and Hershey.

Looks solid!

Is Professional Referral meant to work with Matt Murdock's Client as well? That's fine if so, but it's a little odd that Foggy will work with Matt's Client but Matt won't work with Foggy's Client. I'd probably just limit the power to Foggy's Client.

I mean, in Matt’s defense, he does have a pretty engaging side hobby.

That was the intent. In the event Murdock is destroyed before his client, it would allow continued OM placement on the client with the ability to move the Client and then take a turn with Daredevil. I wanted to continue to use the X as the trigger to represent possible disagreement over strategy between Foggy and Matt while Matt and Foggy are on the board together.

I might change up Foggy’s first power a bit then?

At the start of the game you may choose one Unique Hero you control to be Foggy Nelson's Client. If you choose the same client for Foggy as you do for a Matt Murdock figure you control, then ???

Re: The Book of Foggy Nelson - Breathing
 
I see Foggy as the responsible office manager in the firm that will attend to all of the firm's clients, whereas Matt is usually only concerned with one client/issue.

I like the idea. Would need expansion of course. Do you have anything in mind?

Re: The Book of Foggy Nelson - Breathing
 
Maybe a slight initiative boost (like +2) to represent Foggy and Matt being on the same page?

On the “competing strategies” thing with the X reveal, I think that makes thematic sense, but I would keep a special eye on how it feels during playtesting. 1,000 designs in, we’ve often found that kind of mechanical clash between 2 units that are supposed to work this tightly together just makes the player want to not draft them together.
