Yes, that's why we avoided the more common "empty space" wording, exactly so the Dancers could vault onto a glyph.

A Varkaanan Blade Dancer rolls one additional defense die for each opponent's figure with whom she is engaged.

Please consider revising it!
You know, my grandfather told me that Winston Churchill was once criticized for ending a sentence with a preposition. His response: "That, sir, is a slur up with which I shall not put."

I don't think I have anything to add to that.
Winston Churchill also suffered from mental illness. That quote, if true, may surely be in jest; no Englishman would purposefully degrade the English language, except maybe a Cockney. Save the language!

Jon Ronson, author of The Psychopath Test, said: "One out of every hundred people walking around are psychopaths." There are 26,681 members of these fora; that means that 266 of us (roughly) are psychopaths.

I'm willing to cut Churchill some slack.

Yes, and I'm sure you used to walk several miles to school in the snow, uphill both ways. Ah, nostalgia! Particularly for that which never existed. Its siren song can be tempting, it's true.

I assume that Blade Dancers moved with Defensive Vault do receive leaving engagement attacks?

The funny thing is, English isn't even dalu's first language.

Re: The Book of Varkaanan Blade Dancers

I can't believe these ladies are only medium, and they really don't look like they're only 6 hexes high.

"The Varkaanan Blade Dancers are harder to hit when they're surrounded by a bunch of people."
"Why should that make such a difference?"
"Well, you use... different moves... when fighting half a dozen people... than you do... when fighting... just one."

Also, I agree with Winston Churchill; prepositions are a part of speech that I consider acceptable, in anything but an English paper or business contract, to end sentences with.

L.K.R.

Yeah, that's the exact Princess Bride quote I had in mind when we were designing these ladies.

Sentinels IMHO are not exactly 6 hexes high, either...but that is what they are listed at for game purposes. We felt making the Varkaanans (which there are more in the works) all large would make them too "expensive" in the long run, so we followed with the precedent made by the Sentinels of Classic Scape.
