Re: DFW - "Reverse the Whip" - June 25

Just some outside curiosity, but do the Fen Hydra or Braxas deny you the 15 point bonus? My initial reading is no, but I wanted to alert you in case that's not the intention. Eltahale is another one where my literal reading is no but it's not clear what your intention is.

Although it doesn't really matter in a RTW format, it's fun to try to come up with armies that hit all four of the bonus categories. The best I can manage is Cyprien+Sonya+Fen Hydra+Phantom Knights x2.

Braxas, FH, and Eltahalalala do not cause you to lose the 15 point bonus. I'll take a literal reading just to prevent confusion.

That said, I'm sure there's other angles I haven't considered and you're free to bring them to my attention.

I agree. I like the idea of providing incentives for creative builds like the one you just made.

Sure just reminburse me the airfare, badge, and tickets.

Or I dunno, maybe give more than a month's notice on the date of an event and maybe I wouldn't have made plans to go to Origins.

Re: DFW - "Reverse the Whip" - June 25

Given any thought to what maps will be featured? Would it complicate things too much to do the MOP thing in addition to RTW?

I think it's tricked up enough as it is. There are a lot of good mapmakers out there who have contributed to the community over the years and I'd love to be able to give their work a chance to shine.

Here's a few I'm looking so far. These aren't finalized.

Dignan's Can't see the Jungle


Ollie's Inbetweener


Gamebear's Marpaseia's Glory


nyys' Voids


Ch1can0's Cool Walk


Luke C's Overpasses


Killometer's Rising Pressure


Velenne's Fen Orc Fort


For power glyphs we'll have these in the random pool: Dagmar (Init), Rannveig (Wind), Lodin (+1 d20), Oreld (Order Marker), Kelda (Healer)

Treasure glyphs: Brooch of Shielding, Oceanstrider Amulet, Giant Hunter Stone, Whetstone of Venom, Cloak of Invisibility.

Re: DFW - "Reverse the Whip" - June 25

I'm in like a mug!

Just to clarify, there are 4 rounds, and the 2nd and 3rd are played with your opponent's army, the 1st and 4th with your own?
