  161. Glyph of Conditional Tough - All figures you control gain the ability Tough ∞ when they attack themselves. Submitted by tcglkn


I'd like to build a list of 101 Glyphs Not Worth Grabbing. It's sort of like the old D&D Useless Spells list. Anyone got any additions?

EDIT: We reached the 101 mark on 4/26/09! But you can keep submitting, and I'll try to keep up with the updating.

Glyph of Bruising: Trap. When you land on this glyph, all other players roll the d20. Highest roller gets to punch you in the face.

Glyph of Sylvarris: Anytime someone mispronounces a character name, they lose their next order marker.

That is not dead which can eternal lie.
And with strange aeons, even death may die.

I don't know why it has to be "Old Man's Glyph" <grumble,grumble,wink,wink>
Plain ole Glyph of Tiredness works for me. I love naps!

Re: Gulp's Glyphs Not Worth Grabbing

rym, I've always taken naps. I even scheduled classes in college around nap-time. I didn't mind the 8 o'clock classes at all, but after lunch, I've got to snooze. I think it's genetic, as my mom did the same.

Glyph of Tickling: All of your army's personality types become "Ticklish."

Glyph of Fire: Sounds cool, but all that happens is that the song "Fire" starts playing at full-blast.

Glyph of Jif: Your whole army is supplied with peanut butter.

Glyph of Imax (Adjustment)
Players may touch or adjust their opponent's figures.

Glyph of Ix (Equivalence)
Kee-Mo-Shi is a Warlord.

Glyph of Ross (Suck It Up)
When one of your figures stops here, you may choose any figure. Roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 1-4, nothing happens. If you roll a 5-20, place the Black Suck It Up Marker on the chosen figure's Army Card. All of that figure's special powers are considered balanced for the rest of the game.

Glyph of Runa (Bad Attack +1)
All bad figures in your army may add one extra attack die when attacking normally.

Glyph of Thorax (Apathy)
Players may not complain that the female figures are too attractive/ugly.

Re: Gulp's Glyphs Not Worth Grabbing

Glyph of Deathstalker Turd - All figures within 8 spaces will be too busy figuring out who the hell stepped on the turd. No figure will attack anybody--even disengagement attack--until the culprit is found. All figures that are affected will roll d20. If you roll 17 or higher the figure on the turd will be identified. Not until that figure is dead, no figure may attack any other figure. Soulborgs are not affected.

Glyph of Marrden Hound Turd - All figures within 8 spaces will be too busy figuring out who the hell stepped on the turd. No figure will attack anybody--even disengagement attack--until the culprit is found. All figures that are affected will roll d20. If you roll 17 or higher the figure on the turd will be identified. Not until that figure is dead, no figure may attack any other figure. Marros are not affected.

Glyph of Krug Turd -All figures within 8 spaces will be too busy figuring out who the hell stepped on the turd. No figure will attack anybody--even disengagement attack--until the culprit is found. All figures that are affected will roll d20. If you roll 17 or higher the figure on the turd will be identified. Not until that figure is dead, no figure may attack any other figure. Orcs are not affected.

Re: Gulp's Glyphs Not Worth Grabbing

Glyph of Mercy When attacking all skulls rolled are counted as blanks, and when defending all shields are counted as blanks.

Glyph of Mindshackling The figure on this glyph is automatically mindshackled and is given to your opponent. If there are two or more they must roll the D20. The highest roller keeps the mindshackled figure while the two lowest rollers get to drop kick you in the stomach

King of the Marro is Killer Bee...
