Re: [Pod 2] Vlad III (Sorin) (Public Feedback)

I'd love to have placable DO's, but experience markers seem like the better move here.

I like this too. Velkhor is a more passive cheerleader (passive debuff, plus a debuff spirit, and flying for easy positioning, and I like requiring multiple kills to activate Vlad's attack aura making him a more aggressive cheerleader. Kind of like the human champions with MacDirks.

I would prefer it only affects friendly figures, because otherwise he just dies to melee squads.

I would go with 3 experience markers (one for each killed figure) to activate a 4 space friendly +1A aura for range 1 figures, and cost him at 130.

Re: [Pod 2] Vlad III (Sorin) (Public Feedback)

I like the Experience Marker route, would be a simple way to emphasise the impaled theme. The box the figure comes from does have cardboard markers in it to that we could use here. I believe there is some with crossed swords, some with shields (both of these match a glyph), and then some with some sort of star if I remember. For what it's worth, the star is very similar to the star on Vlad the Impaler's hat. I don't know if that star on Vlad's hat is a symbol for anything or not, but you could make a tie there.

The little blood red markers could fit too. I think either works.

Even if accidental, that star marker is suspiciously similar. I'd be very okay with us using that as the marker.
