That's sweet and feels appropriately anime-sword guy

Re: The Book of Trunks (Future) (Design Phase)

I do like that. As to the Swordplay variant, what if we tweaked it so it was less of a choice and more of a failsafe so it doesn't necessarily push him so strongly towards stat boosters?

Quote:
SHINING SWORDPLAY
If Trunks attacks an adjacent figure with his normal attack and:
* at least one skull is rolled, he may attack an adjacent figure again with his normal attack, rolling 1 fewer attack die.
-no skulls are rolled, he may attack with his Burning Attack Special Attack.
Not necessarily opposed to the choice, just exploring all options before deciding.

As to Burning Attack, looking at Static Cling, that is more akin to what I was shooting for, so maybe something more like this:

Quote:
BURNING ATTACK
Range 5. Attack 4.
After defense dice are rolled, you may choose up to X spaces in a straight line from the defending figure and move that figure the same number of spaces along the chosen spaces where X is equal to the number of wounds received from this attack. When moving the defending figure, if it cannot move onto a space, roll an unblockable attack die against it. Moved figures will not take leaving engagement attacks but will take any falling damage that may apply and may not be placed closer to Trunks than they were before attacking.
I think that is at least a little more clear.

Re: The Book of Trunks (Future) (Design Phase)

I guess I don’t really see the “failsafe” aspect of it, if that makes sense? Like even if he gets down to the 1 die Swordplay attack, there’s still a 50/50 of triggering the SA. I think that pushes him more towards stat boosters, if anything.

Re: The Book of Trunks (Future) (Design Phase)

Huh I guess we see it differently. Cause with your version I'd want the most boost to push off the SA longer and get more attacks in. Not sure how to take this

Re: The Book of Trunks (Future)

If stat boosters are a concern, you could make the swordplay part into a special attack (maybe increase it to 5 attack since he can't get height anymore). Another option would be to make it a straight double attack like Gray Fox has, to limit how swingy it is.

Looking at Burning Attack, I think it's a fairly complex power for how little the effect will activate. An attack of 4 isn't going to do more than one wound most of the time, and then I feel like not being able to move a figure is also less common (unless there's a factional pairing like Blob or Mister Fantastic). Maybe making it into more of a distraction like thing since Trunks used the Burning Attack as a distraction before he sliced Frieza.

Just spitballing, but here's an idea:

Quote:
RANGE = 6
ATTACK = 4

*CLINK*
Once per round, instead of moving normally, you may choose up to 3 figures within 6 clear sight spaces of Trunks and roll one unblockable attack die against each of them. If you roll a blank, that figure subtracts 1 from its Defense number when defending this turn. After using this special power, place Trunks adjacent to one of the chosen figures.

SHINING SWORD SPECIAL ATTACK
Range 1. Attack 4 + Special.
If Trunks attacks with this special attack and at least one skull is rolled, he may attack again with this special attack. He may continue attacking with this special attack, rolling 1 fewer attack die for each subsequent attack, until you fail to roll a skull.

BURNING ATTACK
Trunks may attack with his normal attack once before using his Shining Sword Special Attack. After attacking a figure with Trunks' normal attack, the defending figure subtracts 1 from its Defense number for the rest of this player turn.
And this was what I had for Trunks in my notes if you like anything from it:
Spoiler Alert!


Edit - Jekyll's idea is great too!

Re: The Book of Trunks (Future) (Design Phase)

I don't think a stat boost is gonna be super crazy for him. With an attack of 4, he could potentially get to what 6 or 7?

The dude can swing a sword real good like .

For the first power, I would say use a name of a power he actually has?
On Burning Attack, why not take a page out of All Might's book with the Knockback?

Just some food for thought, but I think this looks awesome.
Slice, slice, slice... push!

A figure moved by this special attack never takes any leaving engagement attacks but can receive any falling damage that may apply.

Re: The Book of Trunks (Future) (Design Phase)

I was more trying to address tickle's concern there as I don't think he's anymore pushed on that front than any other swordplay person is. Still mulling this over. Will hopefully have an update later today.

Alright, thinking about updating with this.

Re: The Book of Trunks (Future) (Design Phase)

Agreed, that looks great.

I'd prefer calling the second power Shining Sword Attack since that's one of Trunks' major named attacks, but riffing off the Swordplay name is totally fine if you prefer that.

Re: The Book of Trunks (Future) (Design Phase)

Crossover and Super Strength still need to be spelled out. You should use this for the bullet • and I think it would read better if attack was before the colon.
