Re: The Book of Leatherface (Public Playtesting)

- Theme Test - Inconclusive - I don't know the character, but he feels fun. One thing I am wondering, though - would it be a good idea to bump his Life to 5 and drop his Defence to 3? Gives less of a sense of ‘generally decent fighter' and more ‘doesn't care about defending himself but can keep trucking through taking hits' - don't know the character, but I'd guess he's more the latter than the former, thematically, though I'm open to being corrected. Also, it's a bit more interesting and distinct - 4/4 is, justifiably, almost a little overused at this stage, whereas 5/3 isn't used that much (can't think of anyone off hand) and therefore, IMO, more interesting and distinctive. I'd like to see a little more statistic variation in the game, honestly.
- Mirror Test - Pass
- Bonding Test - Pass
- Nothing yet, but Pinhead'll give him some synergy.
- Synergies Test - Pass - Pretty much the above, Chucky ain't breaking everything.
- Power Check - Pass - With his main offensive power being an SA, there's very little you can do to exploit him.
- Fun Test - Pass - Just savagely taking a chainsaw to an enemy hero’s face is loads of fun - that SA is pretty bloody devastating.
- Fun Competitive Test - Pass - It's hard to get frustrated by someone this squashable.
- Drafting Test - Pass - Absolutely, whether with Hawkeye or Robot for mobility and positioning, Pinhead for resurrection and activation synergy or in basically any army as a bit of deadly filler.
- Usage Test - Pass - I was pleasantly surprised to see his Demoralising Presence come into play a couple of times. Honestly, it's not his powers that aren't getting used, it's his normal attack - though I can see employing that against something you're pretty much certain to kill either way to avoid the potential self-wounding of Chainsaw Massacre.
- Strategy Test - Pass - He’s not going to last long - making sure you make the most of the attacks you get with him is reasonably strategic, as can be trying to keep him alive for a while to make the most of him.
