Re: Annihilus - Brainstorming Phase

Once Whitey has signed off on liking this design, we can do some playtesting.

Did we want to explore adding another ability like suggested by Spidey? I don't know myself I like that he only has 2 abilities, but the thematic flavour that we could add by including something about holding on to the CCR glyph longer is also appealing. Remember it really is his Rod & he knows it best.

Oye, there he goes again.

Seriously, though, I really think with an equipment glyph that is iconically connected to him and him alone, we should at least reference it on his card by his ability to keep ahold of it, if not allow him to start the game with it.

I like the card as is, and I am not really in favor of adding more to it, I think it is fine. Also, the Cosmic Control Rod is already mentioned on his card, and I like it just as it is personally.

OK, well I don't really like Paranoid either, as I have never seen him behave that way. I really don't have any great ideas as to what it should be though, sorry.

Re: Annihilus - Brainstorming Phase

Aggressive and Territorial are both good, in my opinion.
Please stick with the 2 power set up!
He's looking good.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: Annihilus - Brainstorming Phase

Ok, I'm into this now.

Firstly, I really think that 'Nihilist' is the way to go. The reason being that during the Annihilation run, Annihilus teamed up with Thanos. Ultimately it was revealed that Annihilus's goal was to build a bomb capable of destroying both the Negative Zone and the Universe leaving him as the sole survivor. That's your definition of nihilism right there. “Nihilism” comes from the Latin nihil, or nothing, which means not anything, that which does not exist. It appears in the verb “annihilate,” meaning to bring to nothing, to destroy completely (or found in the name Annihilus...).

All this seems fine,but I'm not sure that his power level is quite right... but I have an idea... later...

Sure, this seems fine.

This is good as well.

On to my idea. I know that the Cosmic Control Rod Glyph has been tested but I'd like to suggest adding a line in there - 'If the figure controlling this glyph is Annihilus add 1 to his attack and defense' or something like that.

The reason for my thinking of this is that if anyone is getting an advantage from using the CCRG it should definitely be Annihilus (it is his after all). Annihilus created the rod and in turn the rod created him.

So then, I really, really believe that Annihilus should start every game with the glyph on his card. The character of Annihilus is intrinsically linked to that CCRG. The rod is what made him who he is. He can still lose it (he would be governed by all the same rules as any other character holding a glyph) and he should be weakened by the losing of it.

Here then is what I think is needed... One more ability...

COSMIC CONTROL ROD GLYPH AFFINITY
Annihilus starts the game with the Cosmic Control Rod Glyph on his Army Card. At the end of any round where Annihilus is not in possession of the Cosmic Control Rod Glyph, he takes one wound.

I know that this is a new idea for us, but for the character to work as he should, I would really like for you to think about it before you shout me down.
