Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

to review.

Thanks for the notes with the submission. I was a little on the fence with some of it (4 powers, etc.) but the submission notes are thorough and convincing.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

I love this design. I do, however, have a question about it. @The Dewk , is Goblin Opportunism intended to be mandatory? If so, that could create problems (1) with units using the X marker for something, or (2) with future units using a similar power. Thematically it seems like it should be optional, but the wording hints otherwise.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

I like this direction for a 10-pointer, and the theme and balance seem good. I'll echo what Scytale said in that the four powers for Bol seem to be pushing the line a bit, but it's simple enough overall that I'm willing to give him a shot.

to review Bol.

I don't think it causes any problems with existing units if it's mandatory (the Xs have to be revealed to have an effect), but I do think the power would be safer as optional. I'd like an answer here before moving on.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Right. I don’t think it breaks anything as is, but it creates problems and is, imho, less thematic.

All mandatory powers in Heroscape use the word "must".

I'm fine with adding "you may" to the text of Goblin Opportunism, no problem.

I tested with a number of "X Order Marker Matters" units, and never had an issue. Just for curiosity's sake, what situations/units do you see the problems arising from?

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

If you're looking to change it, could you change the name to just "Opportunism"? It would be nice if the power was reusable.

Could you please add "you may" to the power and re-upload it?

I agree with quozl as well; Goblin Opportunism, as written, is nicely reusable and could use a more generic name. (If you don't change it here, we'll consider it again if it makes it through the process.)

Done. I always figured that the power is not only unique, but potentially really powerful (seeing it on anything other than a little 10-point filler could be jaw-dropping), so I never thought to give it a more generic name. But it'd be cool to see the power appropriately reused in the future if someone has the inclination!

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Really like Bol's design. Opportunism is a great power, and while 4 powers are used sparingly, it works here since they're all really straightforward.
