-Rulings and Clarifications-

Suggested R&Cs:
Quote:
Q: If more than one player's army has Children of the Dark Star, can Otherworldly Stench be triggered multiple times to reduce a figure's defense by more than 1?
A: No. The power triggers when a figure is next to a Child of the Dark Star from any army, but it only triggers once.

Q: Would the Fortress Door roll fewer defense dice if adjacent to a Child of the Dark Star?
A: No, Otherworldy Stench is not an attack nor a power that causes wounds, so it does not affect destructible objects.

-Combinations and Synergies-

Z'Thoth, Mouth of the Abyss

Re: Children of the Dark Star Public Playtesting

Map: Ruins of Rennoc
Glyph: Gerda

Army 1: CotDS x5, Z'Thoth (440)
Army 2: Microcorp Troopers x4, Kaemon Awa (440)

Final: Outsiders win with 4 Children and 4 life Z'Thoth remaining.

Game Summary: The Children massed along the left while Z'Thoth approached from the right. The Microcorp's shots weren't terribly effective at slowing down the Children, who were able to rush into engagements early and often. The Three turns of 4 followed by 2 turns of 5 in rounds 2 and 3 were particularly brutal, and ended with the Children occupying Gerda with the Microcorp fairly well thinned out. 6 move was very useful in accomplishing this and a lot of 2-shield defense rolls helped as well.

Afterwards, Z'Thoth saw most of the action, apart from a single OM used to send the Children towards Kaemon. Maddening Visage was incredibly useful in their skirmish, forcing Kaemon to defend from low ground against the two attacks that killed him. Plenty of times, it would have caused either a bad position or an LEA even on a roll of 1-10, but apart from a fairly inconsequential usage in round 1 Z'Thoth rolled 11+ every time. Spirits of the Void was never used or needed.

Unit Summary: Sign of the Elder Gods: 2 turns with 5 R1, 3 turns with 4 R2, 2 turns with 5 R3, 1 turn with 6 R4

Otherwordly Stench: Effective for all Children attacks and one Z'Thoth attack against Kaemon.

Spirits of the Void: Never used.

Damage Dealt: 12 Microcorp.

Thoughts: The Children were a ton of fun to play this game. Moving 5 figures two times a round is very strong, but moving 4 3 times will often be better for development and board control. Sign of the Elder Gods is such a fun power, to the point where I'd be willing to play these guys if it was the only thing they had. I also like Spirits of the Void conceptually though, and it seems like a lot of fun in armies with 2 or more outsiders or an outsider that benefits more from it.
