Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

I like Rage of Destruction, personally - sounds more poetic, to my ears. I feel as though that's how it would be described if someone were writing a saga about this guy.

Not the same. "Destruction" in that context is a description of a magical aura the Gauntlets (or the unofficial Ray) have. A "rage" is not a magical thing, like the gauntlets. It is a loss of control and temper, expressed in a violent outburst. "Rage" and "destruction" used this way are two ordinary words, describing ordinary things,* that do not go neatly together the way it's currently written.

I started a thread here for people who want help with editing. Use it or not, it's up to you, gentle reader. I figure that way I am less often going to be in Scytale's hair (hopefully, if people use it).

Would you trust this man with your editing needs?

"Gauntlets of Destruction" make sense. "Rage of Destruction" makes less sense.

In this case, "It is a D&D power with very similar D&D mechanics" would be persuasive to me, but "It sounds like it could be a D&D power" is definitely not.

You're using "rage" in the normal sense, not the way it's become in the D&D sense. In D&D it's become, more or less, "a magical thing," something like a "spell of destruction." It's a power, an ability, not a violent outburst.

I'll reassert that I prefer Destructive Rage, but I'm not bothered by Rage of Destruction. I can understand if it bothers other Judges, however.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Not a big fan of the obviously-Star-Wars Darktrooper being used for the Isadoran Guard, but that ship has already sailed. I'll go ahead and give it an

I wonder when the Phase II will show up...

I'm leery of Rampage, but I like anything that shares a name with a giant robot serial killer. 'Rage of Destruction' fits with the DnD concept of a rage, so it doesn't bother me (though it wouldn't bother me if it was 'Destructive Rage' either). to the King Crab as well.

I could also have gone with ;up; to the Mechanical Tiger, tiny Mechanical Tiger, Mechanical Tiger made of fake legos, Bulldozer, or gull-winged sports car (but only if we were Japanese).

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Rage of Destruction was a suggestion given to me in the Pre-SOV thread. I like Destructive Rage better. And I just saw your thread on editing Dad-Scaper and fully intend to make some use of it! Good idea thanks!

Does this mean you're going to change it to Destructive Rage? I don't think that will change any current votes.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

I would like to nominate my custom Ashi-Dhulu for your consideration, SoV.


He is the Purple Worm from the Reaper Legendary Encounters line.
  • Balance-With the playtesting I have done, his points are spot-on. Depending on the matchup, his in-game value can range from 100 to 120 points. (Whether he's facing more heroes or squads.)
  • Playability- The powers read clearly and are in order of activation. Before moving, you can choose to Devour. You chose a small or medium common figure where you can end Stealth Underground Movement, destroy that figure, and place Ashi-Dhulu on the space the figured occupied. Stealth Underground Movement is a Disengage version of Earth Elemental's Special Power.
  • Creativity- A Purple Sandworm that jumps around the board auto-destroying small or medium figures once a turn? He plays very uniquely. He's strongest as a clean-up figure, and stands a decent chance against heroes. If the opponent can muster focused attacks on him, he won't last very long. He can also be baited into unfavorable positions with Devour+Attack placement.
  • Theme-He lives on the same world as Siiv and The Varja. Ashi-Dhulu is a mystical yet real threat on the largest desert on the planet; a desert that may or may not be expanding...
    The Sandworm of Dune, which he is based off of, has several common names, and one of them is Demon of the Desert.
    His name is an anagram of thier Fremen name, Shai-Hulud.
  • Accessibility-The miniature is part of the Reapers Legendary Encounters line, and as such it is reprinted every once in a while. The line itself is going to be reprinted again this summer.
