Re: [AotV] Theme, Lore, and Thormun's Journal

Vydar left the alliance in the last Dungeon Adventure around the time that D&DScape ended. I'd be happy with putting ourselves in a fuzzy area post-betrayal but allowing for some leeway on the exact...

[AotV] "Weird" Terrain Rules Discussion

The reverse side of the Shadows Over Innistrad cardboard terrain mats include darkened terrain that we can use for scenario-specific rules. Given that all of the other cardboard mats predominantly...

Re: [AotV] General Map and Scenario Intro

That's a fair stance. I would like to include at least a few scenarios mixing with other sets in the initial booklet to provide that little hook for getting players to look beyond just our box, but...

Re: [Pod 0] Pod 0 (Main Thread)

With recent talk of adding PLs to pods to help finish out the designs (https://www.heroscapers.com/community/showthread.php?p=2472599#post2472599), I'd like to bring up this here. Of our original Pod...

Re: AOTV General Discussion

Trading playtests could be another good avenue to pursue, though if the reason that some units aren't getting many playtests is just because people don't want to play with them, then we might need to...

Re: AOTV General Discussion

There is still some remaining polish and work to be done on some of the units, such as discussion of tweaking the Soul-Guides or renaming the Ukushisa Pride. Having more members engaged in those...

Re: [Pod 0] Honored Soul-Guides (Lantern Geists) - Playtesti

Evar could be very unfun to come back at 6A/7D with Double Assault, but needing to win initiative to hit that makes it a bit iffy as to whether it'll actually work or not. He definitely doubles down...

Re: [AotV] Theme, Lore, and Thormun's Journal

Copying this over from the recent scenario discussion for further consideration on the underlying story of AotV:

We could of course outline more of this to form a full campaign if we wanted,...

Re: [AotV] General Map and Scenario Intro

Hmm. This is persuasive; I would like to still design a scenario for each terrain expansion (probably other than Ticalla Jungle) eventually, but I can see a strong argument for not packaging those...

Re: The Pre-SoV Workshop

Ranged bonders are very good in general, and the Axegrinders are already a great squad. It's worth careful testing there to ensure that Grimgar doesn't outshine the dwarves' other bonding options.

Re: [Pod 0] Honored Soul-Guides (Lantern Geists) - Playtesti

Heh, I should've specified that there is the potential for medium-sized heroes who get stronger with wounds (such as, but not Krug himself) to emerge in the future; I don't have any concerns about...

Re: AOTV General Discussion

With Captain Stupendous joining the Project Leads, we are up to a team of 5 PLs (the others being flameslayer93, NecroBlade, Scytale, and myself). There are a couple of remaining orders of business...

Re: [Pod 0] Honored Soul-Guides (Lantern Geists) - Playtesti

The MacDirks are the main combo that comes to mind as a squad that can elect a hero and gain bonuses based on the damage taken. Of course, there's also the potential for medium heroes such as Krug...

Re: [Pod 0] Honored Soul-Guides (Lantern Geists) - Playtesti

Scytale, please correct me if either of the below answers is incorrect.



Yes. The MacDirks gain extra attack dice from their own Highland Fury power, which is not negated by Last Will.

Re: The Pre-SoV Workshop

I agree that primarily aiming for making a competitive unit is a poor choice. Aiming for fun first will generally produce better results.

Ironically, I've talked with Captain Stupendous on several...

Re: The Pre-SoV Workshop

Personally, I don't mind a humanoid demon, albeit this one does look fairly normal when compared to something like Velkhor. I'm fine with it conceptually.

There has been internal opposition...

Re: [AotV] General Map and Scenario Intro

I have some reservations about the cardboard ruins on normal HeroScape terrain, but I admit that they're mostly just aesthetic ones. So long as the stands are balanced, it'll probably work. I don't...

Re: [Pod 0] Glyph of Movement - Design

Ah, I see. Yeah, glyphs like Rannveig and VC's Frosa establish board-wide effects well IMO. The concept could be tweaked further of course, but I agree that symmetrical board effects can be fulfilled...

Re: [Pod 0] Honored Soul-Guides (Lantern Geists) - Playtesti

Hmm. I thought that OMs weren't revealed on cards not in play, but a Retchets of Bogdan R&C (https://www.heroscapers.com/community/showthread.php?t=9620) implies otherwise. That's from Hasbro,...

Re: [Pod 0] Honored Soul-Guides (Lantern Geists) - Playtesti

We should definitely start listing synergies in the OPs of each thread once units enter Testing. I'll try to take a pass through Pod 0 and catch everything whenever I get a chance--it's pretty easy...

Re: [Pod 0] Glyph of Movement - Design

1) I agree that involving the X OM with glyphs is probably a bit too complex for what we want here.

2) I'm not sure that I see the correlation between using AotP's markers and Rannveig, unless...
