Re: The Book of Commander Charvanek

I can see under Clouded Judgement, the alied comander being Adjacent, Maby a lower negative with him not having to be adjacent when he is non-alied. I just figure if he is non-alied and adjacent they are probably fighting I would think at range it would be acting like her rage at seeing him there.

Re: The Book of Commander Charvanek

I don't know. I like Clouded Judgement as it is. But I have to say, the ability to move 2 Heroes as opposed to one Squad is a bit much. I suggest Bonding move only 1 Hero or 1 Squad, just like Kato.

Re: The Book of Commander Charvanek

Except Kato can move 2 squads.

Re: The Book of Commander Charvanek

Commander Keras looks like he will have a Romulan movement bonding allowing him to move up to 3 3-figure squads. Charvanek is heading toward a Kato Katsuro type "take a turn with" ability. Personally, I'd prefer her not to cost 200 points.

Here's Kato Katsuro's stats for reference:
Quote:
Kato Katsuro
Life: 5
Move: 6
Range: 1
Attack: 4
Defense: 4
Point Value: 200
Kato Katsuro's Command - Instead of taking a turn with Kato Katsuro, you may take a turn with one of the following that you control:

1 Samurai Hero,
or
1 Samurai Squad,
or
1 Ashigaru Harquebus Squad and/or 1 Ashigaru Yari Squad. You may choose which Sqaud to activate first.
Any figure in the above list that is taking a turn instead of Kato Katsuro must be within clear sight of Kato Katsuro before moving.
It's the 2 Ashigaru squads option that make Kato worth his points, IMO.
My suggestion would be to take one part or the other of Kato's command and apply it to Charvanek:
Either:
1 Romulan Hero or 1 Romulan Squad

OR

2 Romulan Squads

The second option would drive her cost up more, but it could still be kept below Kato.

Now, imagine Keras and Charvanek working together. Keras rolls the d20 moving up to 9 squad figures forward. Charvanek (with the 2nd option) moves and attacks with 6 of those squad members. Sounds like a neat combo.

Thoughts?

Re: The Book of Commander Charvanek

Here is why I worded the power the way I did...She is a group commander. In her only appearance, she had command of a group of 3 ships. I took that to mean that she had command over 3 captains, and they had command of scores of Romulans. The implications are, strategically, she controls middle ranking officers. The opportunities for strategy are greater. With an ambitious personality, she would not be content to control mere squads, but something bigger. I imagine she would be expensive, but earn it.

Of course, I will change it if the community desires it, but I just wanted to share my thinking.

I don't have a problem with Charvanek being a powerful unit - your reasoning is sound. There's nothing that says we can't have a Kato-type unit for Trekscape. We'll just have to ensure we properly set the point cost.

Or at least when we get to see some previews. I've not seen any more info about the set.

Re: The Book of Commander Charvanek

We just need to be careful that we aren't making the Romulans (and their TBD squads) too powerful. They should be able to match up fairly evenly against a Federation contingent of Kirk, Spock, and 3 squads of Redshirts.

I know that I do not know.

This is exactly why I am making her so powerful. I imagine that Kirk and Spock will be incredibly strong. I mean really, Kirk was able to defeat a Gorn by himself and Spock is able to beat the computer at chess. Just Kirk and Spock would be 350 points together, if we do the mythos any justice. The romulans have to be strong just to stand a chance.

That leads me to believe we are going about this in the wrong order. We might want to design K/S/M first and then make the enemies to fight them. Just a thought...
