Are we happy to move forward with Velkhor as the name for this unit? I'm still happy to take other suggestions here. Once we've landed on something definitively I'll propose the vote to move into testing.

Re: [Pod 1] Atrixus (Ob Nixilis, Demon of Spite) - Editing

How about Malacoda, references
character in Dante's Inferno character in Dante's Inferno
, and means "bad/evil tail" in Italian - the figure looks like a lot of depictions of the character in the book and his powers goes along with as well. The character has been referenced/copied in a lot of games as well such as Castlevania, Resident Evil, & Yu-Gi-Oh; I don't know if that is a good or bad thing if we wanted to use the same character/name, but is just a good suggestion if we didn't want to create an original name. I'd also accept any other demons from mythology or literature. Other suggestions include: Wormwood, DeSaad, Mephistopheles, Morgoth, etc, but Malacoda seems like best of those IMHO, but I'd be OK with Velkhor though as well

And if not, there's a whole long list here:

(I'm fine with that name along with Belial, Asmodeus, Astaroth, Malphas,Dagon, Beleth, and Aamon)

Nice reference. I think Malacoda, Abaddon, or Merihem from that list as most looking like and having nature of this figure and powers we have, as well as cool names.

Re: [Pod 1] Atrixus (Ob Nixilis, Demon of Spite) - Editing

Apologies for being slow to respond to this. Wasn't able to formulate my exact objection at first so I let things sit too long.

I do, however, feel strongly that not everything we come up with should be a reference. In fact, I feel it's most scape-y for referential names to be few and far between. Plot and theme hasn't been quite ironed out for this set, but there was some discussion about this unit being the main villain, yes? If so, the set will have a lot more character and identity if we come up with our own name rather than lifting one from mythology, however obscure.

I'd be happy to go with Malacoda and corrupt it some to give it a little more flavor, or to stick with Velkhor as previously discussed. But since I'm sure plenty of this units in this set will be discussed as having potentially referential names (and, indeed, several already do) I'd like to push back on that trend where I can.

I like Malacoda, for what it's worth.

Just passing through and had a couple comments:

Does anyone mind if I add a "you may" to Demon's Vulnerability Spirit to make it clear?
I do like adding "you may" as otherwise if none of your opponent's have uniques left then you'd have to put on yourself.
All powers are optional unless otherwise stated, so there's no need for "you may" here.

I'd be OK with removing "Demon's" and also we can add "2" to the end, so "Vulnerability Spirit 2" but maybe not.
I should think some kind of "X's Vulnerability Spirit" would be preferable, as a throwback to RotV and Thorgrim and Finn's "Warrior's Armor Spirit".

Not true, rather the opposite in most circumstances. For example, anything that gives or removes attack or defense dice, for example, in inherently mandatory.

I was thinking of Grimnak's ruling, but the Anubian Wolves ruling contradicts that, which is a shame because I like anything that can save words. Oh well.
