Interesting...I'll get back to you.

I might be completely of base, but I think the summoning really lowers his points. Compared to the Airborne or the Retchets, the Archon's summoning is pretty much a pure negative. He doesn't get to pop up where ever he pleases or take a free turn, and a swarm army could completely negate the chance of him coming out if it gets lucky.
I hadn't thought of that. On the other hand, upon being summoned, the Rechets and the AE can immediately be killed. My archon comes in as a fully-loaded hero. And Air will not be the strongest of the four, I promise. So I feel like there's some added value there as well.
Quote:
is there any particular reason the Archon can save an air elemental within 4 spaces but has to place it within 3 spaces of himself? Not a game breaker or anything, just seems kind of odd to me.
See, that actually was a thematic touch. He's a funneling current. When the Air Elemental is destroyed, it gets pulled back toward the Archon, who spins it back up and gets it swirling again. Or something like that.

Soon, I hope.

2) If you were thinking of giving the Archon a wind themed power may I suggest something like the Air Elemental's Air Mastery. Instead of being a power that affects just the figure that the elemental is attacking, you could use something like an aura where any figure wtih Flying/Stealth Flying within x amount spaces would roll subtract x amount from his defense dice.
Interesting. Stronger vortex takes down fliers. I like it. I haven't playtested these guys yet. I just need to make sure the Air Elementals get enough support, since they won't have Kurrok taking turns with 3 at a time and summoning them when necessary. I worry that without the regeneration factor, at least the Elemental-component of the army might fizzle too quickly. That was the point of the Archon's regeneration power. Must think more about this.

3) 120 for Sephyn and 75 for the Archon
That might be about right. I might bump the Archon to 80 to start with. Then I might find out I'm wrong.

Quote:
5) Not really, I would suggest dropping Sephyn's Life to 4 or 5 and the Archon's Life to 4.
I don't know about this. Kurrok needs to stay out of harm's way. I want Sephyn to be able to venture into the fray a little more. Or at least into the friendly vortex. As for the Archon, 5 is average, and I do want them to be a little on the scary side. I'll see what works.

I really appreciate the input, guys. It's great to be able to bounce ideas around.

I'll be back.
