TREE OF LIFE

LIFE - 3
DEFENSE - 5

SIZE - HUGE 14

LIFE AURA

Undead figures adjacent to this Tree of Life subtract 1 from their Defense number. Figures adjacent to this Tree of Life that are not Undead or destructible objects add 1 to their Defense number. When this Tree of Life is destroyed, remove the top and flip this card.

ROOTS TO BRANCHES
While this tree is on the battlefield, whenever a special power on an Army Card refers to an Evergreen Tree, it refers to this Tree of Life as well.

DEEP ROOTS
This tree may never be moved by any special power or ability.

DEATH AURA

Undead figures adjacent to this Tree of Death add 1 to their Defense number. Figures adjacent to this Tree of Death that are not Undead or destructible objects subtract 1 from their Defense number.

DEAD ROOTS
When this tree is moved, at the end of your turn, replace it with an Uprooted Tree Destructible Object.

This is just a thought to make them play nice with figures like Poison Ivy and Swamp Thing.

ROOTS TO BRANCHES
Whenever a special power on an Army Card refers to an Evergreen Tree or Jungle Piece, it refers to this Apple Tree as well.

Good stuff.
I guess my only concern is remembering which apple is from which tree if there was an orchard.

Re: The Book of Apple Tree/Dead Tree (Breathing)
 
That is true, hmm. I'll have to think on that one.

I suppose each tree could have a different color apple.

Re: The Book of Apple Tree/Dead Tree (Breathing)
 
Just put a number on the apple.

you can have 8 numbered apples on the card.

If you have more than 8 trees on the map then you can figure something else out on your own.. :)

That works.

Ooh, make sure to post this link to one of the main threads so folks will know it's going. Probably doesn't hurt to do a tag of the Terrain Group members as well.

But yay that this has started! :-) I just saw it now. Comments in a bit.

Re: The Book of Apple Tree/Dead Tree (Breathing)
 
First question: Do we want these to be throwable? If so, we want sizes and heights on them, I believe.

For the addition you mentioned, I'd just do the Evergreen side of it, since thematically that sucker isn't appearing in a jungle. :-P

So the overall idea (just for clarity) is this is a flip card with the apple tree version starting out and the no leaf dead tree version on the flip side? Seems workable enough.

The powers on each sides are pretty straightforward and I like the interaction. Basically by the time you kill the tree you're getting the benefit of -2 move and defense, which will be worth it if someone like Nightwing has the Apple.

The only difficulty I could see is having to track who has which apple, but we can see how that feels in testing.

Possible early wording tweak:

THE TAKING TREE
A figure with this tree's Apple Marker on its card subtracts 1 from its Move and Defense numbers. When this tree is destroyed, remove its Apple Marker from the game.

Sorry for the delayed tag. Not tagging Bats or Tornado since you guys have already commented.
