Huh, I don't think we ever did. Well, plenty of fantasy worlds to choose from.

Iím guessing there would be resistance to arctorus, and I donít know enough about dnd to know if the mini can pass for a Toril or Eberron demon? Iíd rather not introduce demons to Icaria or Valhalla. That leaves us with Grut or Feylund, neither of which I love but either of which I could live with.

It's a pretty generic-looking demon, and there are lots of different kinds of demons and devils in D&D. So yeah, it could be one, though the powers aren't really reminiscent of D&D designs.

I kinda like the warworld Grut. Feylund always works.

Re: [Pod 1] Velkhor (Ob Nixilis, Demon of Spite) - Playtesti

Yeah, at this point I think I’d prefer grut over feylund. The idea of demons there fits in kinda neatly with the ritualistic tribal vibes of the orca and varkaanan

However, if it fits in dnd that probably has the strongest precedent. I was a bit worried it might look more like a dnd devil rather than demon, but glad to hear that isn’t the case.

Well, it does look more like a D&D devil than demon.

If we make it a D&D devil or demon, his powers should be changed to be ones that more closely align with D&D devils/demons.

Sounds like Grut it is then �� Really rather not do a whole redesign just because we never nailed down the planet.

Re: [Pod 1] Velkhor (Ob Nixilis, Demon of Spite) - Playtesti

Velkhor was used in one of two quick playtests at ScapeCon.

Mimring, Velkhor, Nephda, Tarn
vs
Airborne Elite, Katryn Vade, Syvarris, Izumi Samurai

The map was a multiplayer map that we simply used small sections of. This was mostly an alley between some ruins, with the Pillars of Har added in the middle across some swamp.

After some positioning, Airborne Dropped Round 2, with two going on a hill near the start zone, and two taking the Pillars. Tarn won initiative and knocked one off a Pillar to his death (fun moment!). Out of the 3 remaining Grenades, only 1 skull was rolled and killed 1 Tarn. Velkhor moved up to put all enemy figures in range of the Aura, which meant Mimring's 3-skull Fireline catching 2 Airborne killed them both no matter what they rolled (another cool moment). Syvarris took height over everything and rained fire, killing Mimring in one turn, then Velkhor (who gave him the Spirit in revenge). Sadly, this meant Nephda didn't really get tested as she moved out just too late to heal her allies. She got a hit on 0D Syvarris, then also died to his hot dice. Izumi moved out and engaged the last 2 Tarn, then Katryn used her SA to target an Izumi, killing it but also both Tarn to end the game.

This wasn't a major test by any means, but it was enough to get a little bit of a feel for some characters. Velkhor certainly seemed like he had a lot of potential, getting all enemies within the aura and not giving Airborne even a chance at defending. With Stealth Flying and the drop to 110 points, anything more (larger Aura, for example) seems like it would be overkill.
