Re: [Pod 2] Vlad III (Sorin of the Eternal Thirst)

Yeah, for some reason I had thought that we were still deliberating whether or not Brutality should affect enemy figures, but it looks like that was already decided. I think this design should be just about ready for public review.

I agree that the second power could use a better name. I believe that thematically it was meant to represent the terrifying influence of Vlad's cruel fighting style, which involved impaling his enemies on spikes.

Also, right now Cruelty has the exact same effect as James Murphy's Whip 12 power, but Cruelty is currently worded slightly differently. I'd prefer for us to change the wording on Cruelty to match the precedent set by James Murphy:

Quote:
Whip 12:
After moving and before attacking, choose a small or medium figure adjacent to James. Roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 12 or higher, the chosen figure cannot roll any defense dice if attacked by James this turn.
I also think I might like the name Brutal Tactics instead of Brutality, and am open to other ideas besides Cruelty 13 for the second power. Maybe Mortal Strike 13?
