Re: Kolakoskiís Pre-SoV Custom Corner


Well met!

See Post #65 for a picture of the figure. Nieriel wears a couple of thin daggers, which inspired Needle.

Double Attack does not distinguish between normal and special attacks. In this context, Double Attack would allow Nieriel to attack twice with her normal attack, twice with her Special Attack, or once with each, but no more than twice in total. This could be addressed in Clarifications. Although not my original intent, I like it.

NIERIEL

General Ullar

Unique Hero
Species Elf
Class Ranger
Personality Tricky

Size Medium 4

Life 4
Move 6
Range 1
Attack 3
Defense 3

Points 110

NEEDLE
Range 4, Attack 2
Before or after moving, Nieriel may attack with Needle. Defending figures roll 1 less defense die for each skull rolled with Needle. She still may attack with her normal attack this turn.

DOUBLE ATTACK
When Nieriel attacks, she may attack one additional time.

QUICK SWITCH
If Nieriel is attacked with a normal attack while engaged and at least 1 skull is rolled, before rolling defense dice, you may roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 13 or higher, choose an opponent's small or medium figure adjacent to Nieriel who is not attacking and switch it with Nieriel. That figure is now the target of the attack and must roll defense dice. Figures moved by Quick Switch never take any leaving engagement attacks.

Thanks so much for your help! I think we’ve got it.

While Nieriel is not a Rogue, she’ll be a good fit thanks to Elaria. While Nieriel is not a Wolf, she is a good unit upon which to place a Spirit.

It has become apparent that these 2 powers belong with different figures.

Unfortunately, referring to the blank on combat dice won't be able to pass. The first edition of Rise of the Valkyrie came with separate attack and defense dice, so theoretically if someone bought just that box and then got Nieriel, whenever they rolled defense dice their only results would be a shield or a blank.

If that's the mechanic that you want to use, then you'd need to specify that she rolls Ullar Valkyrie Dice, and if she rolls at least one Ullar Valkyrie symbol, she takes no damage from the attack.

I'm not a big fan of that, though. No other design has used Flagbearer Dice other than a Flagbearer yet, so if that precedent is broken then I think that it should be for a unit that embodies the general more (for example, a standalone Samurai Hero using Valkyrie Dice would feel much stranger than Hatamoto Taro does).

What theme are you looking for for this defensive power? If Nieriel is related to the Warriors of Ashra somehow, Defensive Agility could be a thematic way to tie them together. Alternatively, you could always go the opposite direction for a more aggressive figure, adding a second offensive power like Frenzy or the like.

Re: Kolakoskiís Pre-SoV Custom Corner


Well met!

Although initially for Nieriel and Needle, this test is really about Reversal, and the nasty version of it, Ruthless Reversal. Rania was created for the former. She only became Valiant when I was building an army to include Morgan’s Riflemen. Sirenia was created to test Ruthless Reversal. I’m testing both Rania and Sirenia with 4 Attack, 4 Defense, 130 points, but would not be surprised if they are too strong at that price, and come in at 140-170, or end up at 3 Attack, 3-4 Defense, 110-130 points. This is especially true for Sirenia, as Ruthless Reversal/Succubus looks very strong. Opponents of Rania and Sirenia should be thankful that there likely isn’t room on their cards for Disengage or Phantom Walk.

P.S.: Relic (by Dignan) is likely the map for this test.
