Re: Schismatic's Customs - NEW PACK -10/29- Entities of Land

@TheAverageFan
Grateful for your analysis, feedback and support.

To address some questions,
The Wording for Aculanda's Moon Essence stems off of Master Caylus' "Staff of Enfeeblement". She can move it to another hero once it has returned to her card and cannot use it on herself. Whirlwind just came upon really wanting to give her a twister type ability themed off of her staff and pose.

Since the earlier posting of her card here, there was some discord discussion on how she would implement with other units, (since she is a possible SoV submission) if she would promote cheesy methods of use. So her heal has been limited to small and medium like Ana's and I'm unsure yet whether to remove the defense buff.

Whirlwind was not really enjoyed by anyone. I experimented with giving the standard whirlwind assault and having base range 5 and attack 2 stats. With the new card here, there are a few questions on these new changes and for direction. Maybe "twister" isn't a bad Special Attack alternative. Though I am limited in both text space and how useful to make her attack-wise to keep balanced.

Khatesh is pretty powerful! That is why with channeling, she is limited to 1 attack per round. I will investigate that change to make it more clear. Though she can still attempt a banish on a move only turn. I feel she pretty much has to have that limitation, along with less range, since the 4x3 out damages Q9 and Q9 sets the bar for top level ranged multi attack offense. Changes could be made here to give her more consistency if alone, but she no doubt packs a punch even still.

I found Regaul in 2/3 playtests was fairly well able to make up his point value, picking off enemies from a distance once his team was engaged. Though if enemies closed in on him from the sides or are able to engage him, his potential is diminished. Haven't yet tested him on snow yet. The simple reason he likely is in Jandar was for his aesthetic. Like with the blue Dzu Teh. And he looks a bit more noble of a Gnoll too.
There is a same posed darker model, but this snow one was tempting to check out.

Adapt what is useful, Discard what is not, Add what is uniquely your own.
