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

I wouldn't read too much into the Warden being brought back twice: given the state of the game it just made more sense to use Range to have a pick of targets and wider threat area for Raelin, rather...

Re: [Pod 0] Velnesh Alphas (Leyline Phantoms) - Playtesting

Swamp Thing is a very mountainous map (it gets up to level 7), so it's tough to completely balance ranged and melee forces there. The zombies actually almost perished before they could get on even...

Re: [Pod 0] Velnesh Alphas (Leyline Phantoms) - Playtesting

I played another game with these guys in the hands of a new player. There were a couple of tactical errors and swings in luck, but he still enjoyed them quite a bit.

Re: [Pod 0] Glyph of Movement - Design

I have grown more fond of the idea of a difference between these glyphs and Power Glyphs as of late, I have to admit. Nothing huge or to the extent of Treasure Glyphs and Power Glyphs, but a small...

Re: [Pod 1] DIENEKES (Gideon Jura, Combat Mage) - Testing

This is the key, I think. The unit is more focused and true to its niche as a defender if Tether only works on opponents. Dienekes is probably going to be a drafting figure that you pick for certain...

Re: [Pod 1] UKUSHISA PRIDE (Blazing Firecats) - Editing

PTI,

I'm partial to Ukushisa Pride myself. This is where it came from:

That said, as an alternative, I think that Blazing Pride or something along those lines sounds fine. Most of the early...

Do you know how this is intended to be pronounced?[/QUOTE]

You pronounce U's with a oo sound and the rest of the letters are the same as english.[/QUOTE]

Thanks for clearing that up! In that...

Re: [Pod 1] DIENEKES (Gideon Jura, Combat Mage) - Testing

80 points seems a little cheap to me; I'd prefer to stick to 90 for now and keep an eye on if Dienekes is underperforming in testing, given that he has the potential to be frustrating for opponents...

Re: [Pod 0] Glyph of Movement - Design

"Curse Glyphs" sound intriguing as a concept, but the negative downside would have to be balanced well against the positives to keep the glyphs overall desirable. Recall, for example, can be very...

Re: New Heroscape Terrain "Quick-Sand" - Collaborate rules

Sure, but stacked sand has exactly 0 special rules. Also, do grass/rock/sand even had names officially? I think that's just what we've gotten used to calling them, but since they don't have any...

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

The Deathwalkers/Zettian Infantry are probably the most obvious combo there, but I think that your observation that Bonding Heroes are the best candidates is a very astute one. It's also interesting...

Re: [Pod 0] Velnesh Alphas (Leyline Phantoms) - Playtesting

I finally got another map set up this week and will hopefully be able to play some more testing games for AotV again. Unfortunately, this first one was cut short since it was already running late and...

Re: New Heroscape Terrain "Quick-Sand" - Collaborate rules

I think that for the cardboard terrain, we can just have the tiles be Sand, Water, Road, and "Weird Terrain" (name change pending). I don't remember if there are any other distinct cardboard tiles to...

Thanks for all of the feedback, guys! Sorry that it has taken me a while to get back to responding; you all know how life goes sometimes.

Re: [Pod 2] Vlad III (Sorin) (Design)

I like the idea of incorporating some kind of forced movement mechanic into the design, and it pairs nicely with the defense bypass. That said, I wouldn't shy away from a greater redesign (probably...

Re: Astro's Custom Units [Update 5/26/21: WWII Medic]

The movement doesn't seem terribly powerful to me given the adjacency restriction? Generally, only a maximum of 6 ending spaces are opening up each OM and the soldiers can only move 5 spaces, so it's...

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

Okay, thanks for clearing that up. It might be worth specifying this in an R&C in the OP once released so that players aren't confused.

Re: [Pod 1] UKUSHISA PRIDE (Blazing Firecats) - Editing

Spelling it out does seem like the best route here, given that we have the space for it.

I just realized that I'm not sure how "Ukushisa" is supposed to be pronounced. Depending on the...

Re: Astro's Custom Units [Update 5/26/21: WWII Combat Medic]

Building further off of C3V's WWII Pathfinder faction after the addition of Lt. Col. James Smith, I really wanted to further define what makes the faction unique with another Common Hero centered...

Re: [Pod 0] Glyph of Movement - Design

Leaving them as normal Power Glyphs would probably be the least confusing thing to do for a new player, since if they start collecting things like Malliddon's Prophecy and get random red glyphs,...

Re: [Pod 2] Durnipia (Kiora, the Rising Tide) - Design?

I'm going to go ahead and propose that this design moves forward to Editing. From the last couple of pages, I believe that this is the consensus so far:



Since I'm not a part of this pod, I...
