The Book of Pelloth

The Book of Pelloth
Master Set III - Battle for the Underdark





If you cannot see the Army Card graphic, check Hasbro's Unit Page for stats and special powers, plus "character biography" and other non-game unit info.

Character bio: TBA
_________________________________________________________________
-Rulings and Clarifications-
Q. Lolth's Wrath : "Target"?
Who is the target of Lolth's Wrath Special Attack? May Pelloth use Lolth's Wrath while engaged?
A. There is no targeting involved. There is a chosen figure and affected figures. Because this uses attack dice we had to make it a special attack. While Pelloth is engaged, he can only use Wrath against the guy he's engaged with. Once Pelloth is no longer engaged, he can apply additional skulls to other figures. (-Grungebob, Rules Team)

Q. Lolth's Wrath : Self-Lolth-ing
May Pelloth destroy himself in order to inflict wounds on surrounding figures with Lolth's Wrath Special Attack?
A. No

Re: The Book of Pelloth

Doh, got confused....

Pelloth plus the Drow will terrify the Minions or any High cost squad.

Now through May 28th, the Louisville region is in desperate need of platelets - call the Red Cross if you are interested in donating!

Re: The Book of Pelloth

I am very disapointed in pelloth (and most of the other dnd master set figures) the fact that he can't really do anything noteworthy without destroying 23.3333 points is just dumb I knew that would be one of his powers , but I just expected more.

Re: The Book of Pelloth

I believe he can hit himself too right?

EDIT: Also why are we starting a book for a character before it even comes out?

Re: The Book of Pelloth

No, per the Advanced FAQ a figure may never target itself with an attack, whether normal or special, unless stated otherwise on it's card. However, he could be one of the figures chosen to receive a wound if you were foolish enough to choose so.

You're right that he's very bad in most situations, but he will be strong against the expensive common squads and most of the unique squads. Being able to automatically destroy multiple Minions, Sentinels, Imperium, Protectors, Krav Maga, Nakitas, and the like makes him at least a decent counter draft.

You're going to want to cry when you whiff on the attack dice with him though...

Re: The Book of Pelloth

The only complaint I have about his special is that he has no bonding or even a movement bonding with his squad. The fact that you have to move them practically adjacent on their turn and hope that they dont die during your opponents turn, I mean 3 defense won't last long if your attacking expensive common squads like minions to get your figures points worth, makes his ability really hard to set up.

Yep, he would be much stronger with Deepwyrm Drow Movement Bonding or some other kind of positioning synergy. His army is a little clunky in the way that Omnicron Snipers and Repulsors are. But on the right terrain, Hide in Darkness might be enough to keep the Drow alive a while.

Unfortunately, it only works on small or medium figures. I was hoping for a Q9 counter, too, but....

Re: The Book of Pelloth

How did I miss that, but their are plenty of other heroes that it would do wonders against. He will be fun, but just that, fun.

I could see Pelloth and the Drow as a good Rat-Screen stopper. Rats tend to spread out, and since they only have 1 attack, 2 with height, Deepwyrms have a decent chance of surviving a rare attack from Rats. And with Pelloth not far behind, he can blow up some rats.
