Re: Raleigh, NC - Triangle Throwdown: The Returnening

Glyphs are a part of the game. If there were no glyphs, I would have to rethink my army.

As defending champion you should take it as your handicap.

Re: Raleigh, NC - Triangle Throwdown: The Returnening

One of the great things about Heroscape is no matter what little thing you change or alter seems to drastically change the strategy of each player. I personally think that glyphs are great especially when placed in locations on a large map that you would like to draw some attention to. On the other hand because I have never played in a tournament I would like to get a better feel for where I place in the competition with out the help or harm of a force that does not truly reflect the effectiveness of my army or my skills like the Mitton Soul glyph () which leans heavily on luck. Obviously luck is a major part of Scape but I was hoping for a more pure or raw style of combat between all contenders. That is just my thought, in the end though no matter what decision is made I plan on doing my best and having tons of fun dueling it out with some great Scapers .

The glyph pool last time featured only stat-changing glyphs, in so far as I know. Embattled Fen has the wound glyph, as I recall, but I'm not aware that Mittonsoul, for instance, is ever going to be making an appearance. Anyway feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but nothing that luck-dependent will be rearing it's head.

I think Table of the Giants had non-stat glyphs. You should remember that Darkblade.

Welcome Wargamer56! It seems like every day our community is growing and that is Kaemon AWAsome! Make sure you check out the front page for details. Registration is pretty much giving Granite-M a heads up and then bringing your $8.00 entry fee on tourney day. I couldn't help but notice that your location is USA-Pa, are you sure you are going to be able make it down here? If you have moved down here however, (NORTH CAROLINA) make sure you visit our community thread and request that Hogg adds you to the front page. Even if you just accidentally found NC, welcome anyways to HeroScapers.com!

Re: Raleigh, NC - Triangle Throwdown: The Returnening

Wargamer56 is my dad. He's coming down from PA to travel with me and Boozehammer to the tourney. My dad quit his job and my parents are in the process of looking for a new area to move to and a new job. So this is one way he gets to see the area (and check out the gaming scene ). All in one "quick" trip.
