Looks shared to me!


This is a fun question. I just jumped into my own database (all my downloaded maps) to check it out and see what I would do. I think the hardest part is finding a good map that only uses Marvel + expansions. The only one that I have in my files is Hotstepper (though I usually prefer to drop the temporary glyphs for competitive play) which uses two RttFF, but I did some quick checks and you could sub one RttFF for a FotA with a little imagination (pillars as trees, finding places to fit the 7 and 9 hex castle walks). So assuming you work with that, my list would be:

Common Ground 1 RotV (solid and popular for good reason)
Ticalla Sunrise 1 SotM, 1 TJ (again, popular for good reason)
Ice Thistle 1 BftU, 1 TT
Hotstepper 1 MtCB, 1 VW, 1 RttFF, 1 FotA

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

Cool, thank you for all the replies. I see common ground mentioned between some of you. I can strongly agree with making a RotV only map, especially because Marvel is not a terrain heavy set. Never played common ground, but I am a fan of dry season.

@ollie I've actually considered trying to do a sort of "buddy map" combo where I would create 2 maps out of 3 sets, such as using 1/2 RotV and 1 RttFF for one map, and the leftover 1/2 RotV and 1 TT for another map. Would be a cool concept, nice to make efficient use of terrain, although the only sets I would imagine splitting in half are RotV and SotM, other sets don't really offer enough if they are cut in half.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

Question on brand new packs of the Valkrill's Legion: Can anyone confirm if the copper exoskeleton markers should be in that pack or not? I just opened up three brand new packages and I did not get any of the 6 exo markers I was expecting...

I read that Wiz made a mistake?

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

Yeah for some reason they got packaged in one of the other boosters. My memory is telling me it was the one with the Frost Giant.

EDIT: Icewind Scourge is the name.

Ok, that's what I had read, too. Oh well, I'll just use wound markers as replacement exos

I have only one of each of those D&D sets and I think their quality assurance was much less than hasbro. I received an extra Fire elemental card and I think I have 6 copper markers along with some other color I believe. I think I also got an extra treasure glyph at one point I just recall I got a bunch of random stuff with those sets.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

I looked in the Isamu and Othkurik threads, but was rushed because I didn't want to lose continuity in our game, but here's the question.

As Othkurik attacks a figure using Acid Spray, are the (possible) other two figures also attacked or merely "targeted to be affected" by the attack on the first figure? Specifically, is Isamu able to attempt Vanish?

Case in point: My Othkurik attacked my opponent's Deathreaver using Acid Spray. I selected an additional Deathreaver and Isamu who were adjacent to the original target to be affected.

My thinking is that since I attacked the original Deathreaver, and only "affected" Isamu, Vanish should not come into play. That's using the wording on the cards, and the old rule of thumb "Do what the card says, not what it does not."

Thoughts?

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

Any units "affected" by an attack are considered to be "attacked." In your case, yes, Isamu would get to vanish.

Thank you. Offhand, can you point me to where you read this? I want to be able to show my opponent.

I don't think it's actually written down anywhere, it's just one of those things that everybody "knows." Some figures are "targeted" and some are "affected," but all are "attacked." If nothing else, it's worth noting that some special attacks don't target any figures, such as Mimring's Fire Line. It's still an attack, though.

I think of Vanish (or similarly Stealth Armor) as something triggered by the opportunity to roll defense dice. The extra figure chosen by Tandros, when he uses Cleave, can't Vanish because there is no opportunity to roll defense dice. Also, in the FAQ, there is this:

Quote:

Much like other D20 destroy powers, things like Disappearing Ninja, and Stealth Armor 15 do not help against it. It’s an instant removal from the board.
So again, another example where there is no opportunity to roll defense dice after attack dice have been rolled. The wording in Vanish says to "roll defense dice normally" when it fails, which implies there was the opportunity roll them in the first place.
