Re: The Book of the Blue Wyrmling

FLEDGLING LIGHTNING BREATH SPECIAL ATTACK
Range 4 + Special. Attack 2.
Choose a figure to attack. You may also choose one other figure within 3 clear sight spaces of the targeted figure to be affected by Fledgling Lightning Breath Special Attack. Roll attack dice once for both figures. Each figure rolls defense dice separately. Fledgling Lightning Breath Special Attack does not affect destructible objects.

WYRMLING BONDING
After revealing an order marker on a Blue Wyrmling Army Card, before taking that Blue Wyrmling's turn, you may take a turn with one other Wyrmling you control.

FLYING
When counting spaces for a Blue Wyrmling's movement, ignore elevations. A Blue Wyrmling may fly over water without stopping, pass over figures without becoming engaged, and fly over obstacles such as ruins. If a Blue Wyrmling is engaged when it starts to fly, it will take any leaving engagement attacks.
Custom Tech Review:
FLEDGLING LIGHTNING BREATH SPECIAL ATTACK
#1) "Range 4 + Special. Attack 2.": Allowing the figure to target additional targets adds the "+ Special" tag to Range and not Attack.

#2) "You may also choose one other figure within 3 clear sight spaces of the targeted figure to be affected": I think many of us would have also called the "targeted" figure the "chosen" figure. 'Choose one other figure within X ... spaces of the chosen figure'. The double 'choose' is disorienting and this figure deals with it by officially calling the original choice the "targeted figure".

#3) "Roll ... for both figures.": "Any or all" is grounded official lingo in HS and as such many modders will use exclusively that language. This figure addresses that by officially stating "both" for two figures instead of 'all'. "Each figure rolls" continues instead of "All". both and each

#4) "...Special Attack does not affect destructible objects.": Interesting, does this imply that destructible objects can be targeted with special attacks by default. Traditionally, we modders include language that permits a special attack to target a destructible object. This official power adds language to disable targeting DO's. It is still presumption to think that the one means the opposite. Perhaps all this means is that one should state permissions for either case.

WYRMLING BONDING
#5) "After revealing an order marker on a Blue Wyrmling Army Card, before taking that Blue Wyrmling's turn, you may ...": Use "on" instead of "from"
