Re: The Book of Blazing Firecats

For Haste, is it just one blazing firecat or the whole squad?

Looking for games like Heroscape and Arena Planewalkers to bring to the table. Please PM me suggestions. Thank you.

Just one. It can be very powerful in the right circumstance because normally a squad must wait until after the opponent takes a turn before they can do anything. I've used it to block a figure in the water and get the quick attack from height for extra tasty damage.

Re: The Book of Blazing Firecats

We had an interesting encounter at our last night's game and I promised them to post it here to check on correctiness.

Quote:
INTENSE STRIKE
Whenever a Blazing Firecat attacks, if you roll at least 2 crossed weapons symbols for its attack, it gets +1 hit.
We interpreted this as armor penetration.
Firecat vs Gideon, 2 swords vs 3 shields.
Gideon had enough shields to block, in fact, one excess shield counterstruck the cat for 1 hit.
While the cats didn't have enough swords to overcome the shields, they did roll 2, guaranteeing 1 hit on Gideon.
Firecat: 2 swords: 1 wound; Gideon: 3 shields: 1 wound.

Some arguments:
Since the Firecat dealt damage, counterstrike is negated;
The +1 hit only happens if there are hits, so if Gideon had rolled only 1 shield, that shield would have blocked one of the swords and the other sword dealt damage and that damage was +1.

Re: The Book of Blazing Firecats

Hunh. I've previously interpreted it as "+1 crossed weapon symbol". Does the rulebook define a "hit"?

Re: The Book of Blazing Firecats

We've been playing it as an additional crossed weapons symbol, as though it were rolled on the dice. I think there's definitely room for interpretation here though. Confred's interpretation had not occurred to me. I'll have to look back through the cards to see if the "hit" terminology ever appears elsewhere.

Re: The Book of Blazing Firecats

There are cards that add crossed weapons symbols, this one adds "hits".

Re: The Book of Blazing Firecats

It could be a simplification of the Scape Fire Elemental's special. Definitely makes them stronger to interpret as a burn hit that breaks through. Somewhat wonky though. I would rather this type of thematic ability was not given the chance to get better with height by making it trigger on all crossed weapon symbols instead. That way the reward of height has to be weighed against a lesser chance of the ability triggering. Either way, interesting interpretation @Confred . Thanks

Re: The Book of Blazing Firecats

You roll 2 hits, it counts as 3. You roll 3, it counts as 4.

In your example, FC roll 2 and add 1 for total of 3. Gideon rolls 3. No Damage, no Counter Strike.

That's my take.

Re: The Book of Blazing Firecats

My interpretation is the same as @Cavalier.
No where does it say unblockable hit.

Re: The Book of Blazing Firecats

Actually the rulebook answers this on page 11, (3) of "How to Attack." Cavalier is correct.
