Re: The Book of Oracle - Playtesting

Looks good, thank you! And, no, auto skulls don't count as "skulls rolled" because, quite simply, you're not rolling them. So Birds of Prey synergy denied, unfortunately. Still, it's not like Oracle and Canary don't work well together as is.

Cheers,
Bats

- THEME TEST/ Check to see if there are any powers or stats on the test unit card that does not accurately reflect the theme or likeness of what the character would and could do. Also consider destructible objects, and whether or not this characters powers should affect them.
Pass. Yup, this Oracle does pretty much everything I expected (although I was expecting an extra attack die bonus vs. auto skull. Yikes!) I will say I was surprised by her base stats, but in reading up on the character a little I guess 4 attack is okay.

- MIRROR TEST/ Check to see if the unit were played against itself, if there would be any loops that would upset the balance of the Game.
Pass.

- BONDING TEST/ Compare the unit card with all possible currently existing Bonding abilities to make sure there are no continual Bonding possibilities that do not stop appropriately or do not stop at all. This is to prevent loops in Bonding.
Pass

- SYNERGIES TEST/ Compare the unit card with all possible currently existing synergies to make sure there are no factors that could break the game by making any unit to powerful or too weak.
Pass. Oracle + Bullseye on height is pretty scary, though. Also, minor question. Do Autoskulls count when figuring powers that say "at least X skulls are rolled"? It would be kind of cool if Oracle helped Black Canary more consistently get Fists of Fury.

- POWER CHECK/ Consider the test unit and all existing units and all glyphs to compare to and check for any powers that could be over amplified and break the game. Each power must define when it takes place, who or what it affects, and What are the stipulations on the power if there are any.
Pass

- FUN TEST/ Consider whether or not the design was fun to play.
Pass. Autoskulls are always fun.

- FUN COMPETITIVE TEST/ Consider whether or not the design was fun to play against.
Loki + Joker + Oracle can be a frustrating Army to play against, but it requires quite a bit of OM management, and lacks a lot of punch if any component goes down, so it's probably Ok. Pass.

- DRAFTING TEST/ Consider whether or not this design is worth drafting.
Heck yes.

- USAGE TEST/ Consider whether or not all of the powers on this card were used or at least usable.
Pass.

- STRATEGY TEST/ Consider whether or not the design offers any real strategy or interesting tactics to the overall game.
Pass.

Army Test
- Does it pass
, Yes or No? Pass
- What should be the unit's point value? Wow. This team really put the beatdown on the F4. This may be because Reed got quite a few bad Fantastic Leader rolls, and Johnny got shot down pretty fast. Still, Oracle was a big boon for cracking the team's boosted defense. She might have performed around 140 here.
- Give a brief overview. F4 got pwned. Hulk or Bullseye + Autoskulls are nasty. Reed was forced to tie them down, to try to hold on to Sue (the defense bonus was probably the only way his team would hold), so he took a lot of heat.
Map: X Marks the Spot
Units: Oracle, Bullseye, Hulk (Hasbro), Hush, Beat Cops x1, Bodyguards x3 (995) vs. Fantastic 4 (1000)

Spoiler Alert!

Army Test
- Does it pass
, Yes or No? Yes
- What should be the unit's point value? 120 was fine here.
- Give a brief overview. So here's the setup... OMs 1 & 2 (and an X if you perceive a Teleport need) on Loki, OM 3 on Joker, 2 X's on Oracle. +6 to initiative (the neat thing about Loki's extra X is that if you lose it, it doesn't come off until after rolling for initiative), screw with your opponent's tactics, and Loki hits with 6 attack dice + autoskull and Joker tells bad jokes for cleanup. Pretty cool, huh? Unfortunately, it wasn't incredibly effective vs. respawning Doom.
Map: X Marks the Spot
Units: Oracle, Loki, Joker, Beat Cops x1 (795) vs. Doom (C3G), Doombots x4, Civilians x1 (800)

Spoiler Alert!

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.
