Re: [Pod 0] UNIT NAME (Jace, Investigator) - Design

Neuromancer being enough of its own reference is a fair point (and I prefer leaving it as the class, too, not in the name). We could even use Tyrell without changing to Jydel, as in Tyrell [lastname]...

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

Additionally, most of the terrain is flat board, so nuanced map construction may be limited.

Re: [Pod 0] UNIT NAME (Leyline Phantoms) - Design

Sounds painful.

I don't really have a preference for a particular gibberish, though. But I am always down for a good reference (any sci-fi B-movies with 4-armed aliens?).

I still prefer...

Re: [Pod 0] UNIT NAME (Eldrazi Ruiner) - Design

True, high Life would allow it to take LEAs to set up more devastating Pull/Crush turns. 8L/4D sounds good in that regard.

Re: [Pod 0] HONORED SOUL-GUIDES (Lantern Geists) - Design

I'm OK with the name (what do you think of adding the hyphen?) and starting 4D/50 points.

Re: Louisville, KY Events: date settled, May 25

Of the maps being used this year (https://www.heroscapers.com/community/showthread.php?t=55847), I don't believe we've ever used Ashfall, Infected Glade, Trouble Once Lurked Beneath..., or Venom. I'm...

Re: [Pod 0] UNIT NAME (Glyph of Knowledge) - Pod 0 - Design

Fair enough. It does seem weird not to have both a name and a summary, but we can't do anything about what's actually printed on the glyph. I'm happy to just keep the name Knowledge.

Re: [Pod 0] UNIT NAME (Jace, Investigator) - Design

William Gibson wrote Neuromancer, so there may be a good connection there somewhere between "Jydel's" name and Class.

Re: [Pod 0] UNIT NAME (Crypolith) - Pod 0 - Design

Portable Panopticon has a nice alliteration to it, but I like Ancient Pillar because it could be from anywhere's distant past and also sounds more like it could be "unstable".

Re: [Pod 0] UNIT NAME (Eldrazi Ruiner) - Design

I'm wary of adding dice to Gravity Crush because of the exponential nature of the attack (each figure is both more dice and more targets). Likewise Gravity Pull at 3 spaces gets a little more...

Re: [AotV] Unit Mechanics

Stat spreads and roles do need variety, too. I often tried to push beyond 5/6/2/3 Ranged units and 5/1/3/4 melee units in C3V (which are far to common). I like the consciousness of a "defender" role...

Re: [Pod 0] UNIT NAME (Lantern Geists) - Design

I think we're pretty settled on 5M and 2A. Defense needs to be decided between 4 and 5. We also need a definitive name and ballpark on points. Right now I'd say 40-50 depending on Defense.

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

While "aura" glyphs do enter a new design space, including map building considerations, my immediate concern is it gives Range an advantage since they can both more easily sit within a beneficial...

Re: [Pod 0] UNIT NAME (Glyph of Knowledge) - Pod 0 - Design

What's written on the glyphs themselves is actually a summary of what the glyph does, so we can pick a different name. Ideally it would also evoke the idea of looking at OMs, and possibly start with...

Re: [Pod 1] UNIT NAME (Ob Nixilis, Demon of Spite) - Design

Re: [Pod 0] UNIT NAME (Leyline Phantoms) - Design

That was my intent as well, but the ability that seemed to be gaining traction was just a teleport with no defensive quality. We could give them 4 defense if we go that direction (making Move,...

Since Human has 3 votes now, I can safely vote for Post Cereal. ;)

I'm fine with Human, so I'll put that in the OP.

Tentative date for the next event is 7/27.

GenCon Main Event practice: 410 points, 16 figures, no Marvel or VC. Alternating Reverse the Whip rounds (probably 4 rounds, then "top 4" cut).

Re: Pod 1 Main Thread

I've made a comment or two in some of the Pod 1 threads (I'm not a Pod 1 member), but after that I'm bowing out. It's up to the actual Pod members to decide their unit's fate. That includes final say...
