Re: Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Playtesting (Fellowshi

Thank you so much for the test, Splash! If you decide to run anymore, you can skip the Q&A part since you've done it once and just dive straight to the report + summary.

Re: Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Playtesting (Fellowshi

Pardon the Interruption I just noticed that we have named the card Cave Troll of Moria but the power text always says "Moria Cave Troll." May want to update the OP to address that.

Re: Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Playtesting (Fellowshi

That works now. Thanks for the pictures, Splash! I like Large 7 or Large 8. Krug is Huge 8, but the original designers were a little inconsistent on large vs. huge; Huge has some soft benefits. I'm...

Re: Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Playtesting (Fellowshi

Looks like we need a new owner for this thread. Shiftrex Chris Perkins MasterScaper1 do one of you want to volunteer to take responsibility for updating the OP with any changes going forward?

Re: Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Playtesting (Fellowshi

There is a playtest form here (https://www.heroscapers.com/community/showpost.php?p=1685267&postcount=1), but you could simplify it if you like.

We built him with no synergies on purpose. You can...

Re: Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Playtesting (Fellowshi

You don't need to restrict yourself to those, and in fact the early ones are kinda' bad.

If you look at Online Heroscape events their maps are pretty good. The last few years of GenCon maps are...

Re: Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Playtesting (Fellowshi

I don't think C3V has any maps? But in general with playtesting it is always good to pick competitive maps like you might see at GenCon or one of the online Heroscape events.

It can also be useful...

Re: The Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Review (Fellowship

I updated the OP to say it is double-spaced.

Yes, we are ready to start playtesting. I will update the thread title.

Re: The Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Editing (Fellowshi

OP updated, and I ninja'd in "adjacent figure" to Cave Dweller, because we want that there for the archers:



I propose we move the Cave Troll of Moria into review

This is the other part of the "editing checklist" that I forgot to mention. Usually someone combs through the text and makes any changes to bring it in line with existing powers, sometimes rewriting...

Re: The Workbook of Cave Troll - Design (Fellowship A)

It would probably be thematic for the additional attack in Cave Dweller to also apply to destructible objects.


I'm surprised that C3V doesn't have a capitalization standard for terrain types....

Thank you for starting on this Shiftrex. This kind of thing is the un-glamorous hard work that makes these projects tick and be successful in the long run.

Re: The Workbook of Cave Troll - Design (Fellowship A)

I don't think we decided definitely. For now we should do it figure by figure. Bring it up in the general discussion thread

Re: The Workbook of Cave Troll

I think Tough covers the "Boromir's blade couldn't cut them" aspect. I don't want to drive the defense of the unarmored one too high. But. Reading the passage where the troll starts entering, it has...

Re: The Workbook of Cave Troll

You can also think of it as them having 6 attack, but -1 against figures not on a cave or shadow space.

My personal feeling is that this design is probably ready to be put in a fellowship.
