THE SILVER KEY
After revealing a numbered order marker on this Army Card, and before taking a turn with Randolph Carter, you may also reveal an "X" order marker on this Army Card to activate The Silver Key. Choose an opponent's Unique Hero within 3 clear sight spaces of Randolph Carter and roll the 20-sided die. If you roll an a 14 or higher, place the "X" order marker on the chosen figure's Army Card. At the end of the round, if the chosen figure has not been destroyed, take control of the figure and its Army Card and place Randolph Carter's figure on this Army Card. At the end of the following round, control of the chosen Hero and its Army Card returns to the player who controlled the Hero before The Silver Key. Place Randolph Carter in your start zone. If there are no available spaces in your start zone or if the chosen figure is destroyed while using The Silver Key, destroy Randolph Carter. When moving with The Silver Key, Randolph Carter does not take any leaving engagement attacks.


I like this wording. The more I think about Mindshackle, the more I want to leave it off, so to speak. When Carter changes identities, he is able to shake off the effects.

Two things:

You have "an a 14" in the 3rd sentence.

In the 7th sentence - "If there are no available spaces in your start zone or if the chosen figure is destroyed while using The Silver Key, destroy Randolph Carter." When is "using The Silver Key?" - when rolling the 20-sided die? when placing the X order marker? while the X order marker is on the opponent's card?

I don't think you intend for RC to place the X on Turn 1, have the chosen figure be destroyed in Turn 3 of the same round and RC is destroyed.

Thanks, SirG! Your special eyes caught those glaring mistakes. ;)

Hey guys.

I want to get back into 'scaping again (haven't played the game in months) and I was hoping I could rejoin this project, if you don't mind.

Welcome back, machinekng! You're still on the list. We're finishing up Taeblewalker's design for Randolph Carter. Jump in any time.

I think we're basically done with Carter. Any other thoughts?

No additional thoughts on abilities...just think we need an updated card and cost.

Re: Heroes of Fiction: Design Thread
 
I don't really have any comments on this one either.

As for cost, I can't really pin it down. The ability is stronger than the Mind Flayer Mastermind's Enslave, but it has a catch, in that the player that controls the hero can take precautions before a turn is taken with the figure.

Mind Flayer Mastermind is about 100, so, somewhere around that price?

Cool. I'll get to work on that later or tomorrow. Meanwhile:

Here's the list of those who seem at all active. Rave, KC, and wulfhunter, let me know if you want back in. Otherwise, Tickle can get started on Smurfette or whomever he has in mind. ;)

It's my turn? Give me some time to work someone up.

Here's Randolph Carter's card with SirG's final edit and a point cost of 100.

Were there any other changes?

100 seems about right. It can be a very powerful ability, but once you place that X, you've just put a big target on his back. That would seem to balance it out.
