For the addition you mentioned, I'd just do the Evergreen side of it, since thematically that sucker isn't appearing in a jungle.

So the overall idea (just for clarity) is this is a flip card with the apple tree version starting out and the no leaf dead tree version on the flip side? Seems workable enough.

The powers on each sides are pretty straightforward and I like the interaction. Basically by the time you kill the tree you're getting the benefit of -2 move and defense, which will be worth it if someone like Nightwing has the Apple.

The only difficulty I could see is having to track who has which apple, but we can see how that feels in testing.

Possible early wording tweak:

THE TAKING TREE
A figure with this tree's Apple Marker on its card subtracts 1 from its Move and Defense numbers. When this tree is destroyed, remove its Apple Marker from the game.
Thanks for the feedback Bats! Yeah, my intentions were to have a flip card for this. Japes suggested having numbered Apple Markers. With that, you could probably just start the game by numbering the trees maybe?

I wanted the powers to be pretty simple, most of our DOs have just the one power. With this one coming in late to the game I figured having it play well with figures like Poison Ivy and stuff would be a good addition. I am totally okay with just the Evergreen call out, that makes more sense anyway.

Thanks for the wording tweak, that looks like it should work better.

Um, are there magical apple trees in the comics?

Sure!

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Technically, yes. The Golden apples of Iduun.

Re: The Book of Apple Tree/Dead Tree (Breathing)

Then I suggest if you want to do magical apples, base it off one of those trees.

That’s an awesome idea. I don’t think much is known about the Oz ones, though.

I think Dr. J. is going for more of a “Giving Tree” vibe here, which I think is really neat!

Seems to fit the written goals of the group well as well:

Quote:
1st draft of C3G Terrain Goals:

1) To have a collection of terrain that can be used on C3G maps for competition, scenario, and/or casual game play.

2) To have each terrain design be a collaborative effort from the C3G Terrain members while encouraging support, ideas, and effort from the entire Heroscapers.com community.

3) Maintain the position of at least 5 and no more than 11 core members who are enthusiastic, well respected, and active Heroscapers.com members.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: The Book of Apple Tree/Dead Tree (Breathing)

Cool tree. Love the 3D design.

Not sure if I like the powers of this at all.
  • What is this special apple? Is it related to something in the comic-verse?
  • When the tree is destroyed flip this card? Ok so there is a dead tree power on the other side, but there is no dead tree on the battlefield? When an object is destroyed it's removed from the battlefield. I assume you are supposed to remove the leafage top when it is destroyed instead of removing it from the battlefield, but there are no instructions to do so.
  • Does it really have to be a magical tree?
It is taking up 3 spaces so I would want it to be a little more powerful than the ticalla trees but I'm not particularly taken by this powerset. Unless there is something that this is supposed to be representing in the comic-verse, in which case I could probably be persuaded.

Re: The Book of Apple Tree/Dead Tree (Breathing)

I would say the Tree of Life is a pretty archetypical concept in Western literature, including in the Biblical stories of Eden.

Re: The Book of Apple Tree/Dead Tree (Breathing)

I like the life/death symbology. I see when I zoom in on the pictures, there's even a little skull in the tree.

What if we did something like this?

Quote:
TREE OF LIFE

LIFE - 3
DEFENSE - 6

LIFE AURA
Figures adjacent to at least one Tree of Life add 1 to their Move and Defense numbers. When this Tree of Life is destroyed, remove the top and flip this card.
-----------------------------------------

TREE OF DEATH

LIFE - 2
DEFENSE - 5

DEATH AURA
Figures adjacent to at least one Tree of Death subtract 1 from their Move and Defense numbers.

Re: The Book of Apple Tree/Dead Tree (Breathing)

Edit: You guys are fast!

Thanks for the feedback guys. I honestly was not under the impression that destructible objects or terrain had to have a comic basis. I was kinda just going for an invigorating apple that turned to poison when the apple tree was destroyed.

Good catch on the leafage situation A3n, I will get that clarified.

Unless you guys have any ideas you want to throw my way that would be better.
