Big Boss's Customs

1/21
These guys are still in the thought process, but I will make cards for them once things are hammered out.

When the land of Rolav was attacking by thousands upon thousands of Undead hordes, the land called for help. The King himself began to pray to a god, and this god helped him and gave him holy powers. He was able to pass his gift along to a select few who vowed to share his quest to rid Rolav of its unholy infestation. After years of war, they were victorious. King Tyler dubbed his trusted few The Paladins, and later they became the legendary Paladins of Rolav. The Paladins now understood their power and how great it was, so in result they will put the King first, knowing it was him who gave them the chance to own it. Jandar has shown interest in these valiant knights, hoping that they would bring their holiness and aid his troops in the effort of vanquishing Utgar's forces of the night...

KING TYLER
Jandar
Human
Unique Hero
King
Valiant
Medium 5

Life 5
Move 5
Range 1
Attack 4
Defense 4
100 Points

HOLY ARMOR RADIANCE
This ability is only in effect when King Tyler does not attack during a round. All friendly figures within 2 clear sight spaces of Tyler add two to their defense and all Undead figures roll one less attack die and one less defense die.

HAMMER OF THE GRIZZLY
When King Tyler inflicts at least one wound on a small or medium figure, move that figure back one space directly backwards. If there is a level increase of 3 or more, or an obstacle where the attacked figure would be moved, instead roll 1 attack die. If you roll a skull, that figure receives an additional wound. If there is another figure occupying the space where the attacked figure would be, roll 1 attack die for that figure instead. If that figure is destroyed, place the originally attacked figure onto that space.


PALADINS OF ROLAV
Jandar
Human
Unique Squad (x3)
Knights
Valiant
Medium 5

Life 1
Move 4
Range 1
Attack 3
Defense 4
70 Points

LONG LIVE THE KING
If an adjacent King is attacked, you may switch that King with an adjacent Paladin of Rolav. The attack target is then switched to that Paladin. Neither King or Paladin will take leaving engagement attacks.

HOLY ARMOR
All adjacent Undead figures roll one less attack die and one less defense die.

Interesting cards, Big Boss. If you don't mind, I have a few notes...

King Tyler's first special ability (Holy Armor Radiance) wording is murky. It seems like it's a ranged defensive boost for friendlies, like raelin's. But you say it's only in effect when King Tyler does not attack during a round. So does this mean that he has to have a turn during the round, and not attack, thereby activating this defensive boost? That's how it's worded, and it's very inconvenient.

If you don't want him to have the ability ALL the time, then maybe make his ability to use the power, dependent on the order markers. If he has at least one order marker placed on him during this round maybe? or none at all if you so wish? By basing it on the order markers it's a bit clearer on when you'd recieve the bonus and when you wouldn't.

Otherwise they both look solid. King might be priced a little low... but not much. they look dead on. I wonder how they'd fare on the table.

I like the idea for a Paladin, been trying to think of a way to make it feel like a Paladin. I think you hit it on the nose with Holy Armor

Have to agree with Eckels tho, on the wording Holy Armor Radiance needs to be cleared up.

Maybe something like:
HOLY ARMOR RADIANCE
This ability is only in effect when King Tyler does not have any order markers on his Army Card for this round. All friendly figures within 2 clear sight spaces of Tyler add two to their defense and all Undead figures roll one less attack die and one less defense die.

How about something like this? Instead of having a more extreme Holy Armor ability, just give him Holy Armor + the defense ability:

HEAVENLY RADIANCE AURA
All friendly figures within 2 clear-sight spaces may add two to their defense.

HOLY ARMOR
All adjacent Undead figures roll one less attack die and one less defense die.




Does that work better? If so, does his cost need to be changed?

Do you want Holy armor to affect friendly undead? or Unfriendly only? Should maybe specify that. Otherwise, wording looks solid.

All. Both friendly and unfriendly.

So with that, do I need to mention that part or is it OK to leave it as All adjacent Undead...?

You'll settle more arguments before they start, by being as clear as possible from the start.

The Paladins of Rolav's Long Live the King Ability is interesting, but the way it works now, you can use it with some of the dragons, such as Charos. Not sure if that's what you wanted....

Woot! A figure named after me!

Though I'm cooler, and would belong to Vydar

And the Palidins special are cool, but how many figures in the game are Kings?

I know Charos is a king. I can't think of any others right now.

The big white dragon Nilwhatever is a king.

Off Topic: I can't remember his name, because we've all nicknamed him "Nipplefarm". That's what his name always reminded me of, and it stuck. Now I can't recall his real name. That would figure.
