Re: The Book of Gambit - Design

NAME = GAMBIT
SECRET IDENTITY = REMY LEBEAU

SPECIES = MUTANT
UNIQUENESS = UNIQUE HERO
CLASS = THIEF
PERSONALITY = CHARMING

SIZE/HEIGHT = MEDIUM 5

LIFE = 4

MOVE = 5
RANGE = 1
ATTACK = 4
DEFENSE = 5

POINTS = 210


STAFF VAULT
After moving and before attacking, if Gambit moved at least 3 spaces and is unengaged, he may Staff Vault. Staff Vault has a move of 3. When counting spaces for Staff Vault, ignore elevations. Gambit may vault over water without stopping, vault over figures without becoming engaged, and vault over obstacles such as ruins. Gambit may not vault more than 8 levels up or down in a single vault. After using Staff Vault, you may add 1 die to Gambit's normal attack this turn.

FIVE CARD DRAW SPECIAL ATTACK
Range 4. Attack 1 or 2.
Gambit starts each turn with 5 attack dice. Choose any non-adjacent figure within range and attack by rolling 1 or 2 attack dice. Gambit may keep making special attacks with 1 or 2 attack dice until he has rolled all 5 attack dice. When rolling attack dice for Five Card Draw Special Attack, if a skull is rolled on every die, each skull rolled counts for one additional hit.

DISENGAGE
Gambit is never attacked when leaving engagements.

Re: The Book of Gambit - Design

To streamline things a bit, I wonder if we couldn't make this change to his special attack?


4 OF A KIND SPECIAL ATTACK
Range 4. Attack 2.
All skulls rolled with 4 of a Kind Special Attack count as one additional hit. If you roll a blank with 4 of a Kind Special Attack, the defending figure receives one automatic wound. When Gambit attacks with 4 of a Kind Special Attack, he may attack 3 additional times. Gambit may not attack the same figure more than twice.

or

Re: The Book of Gambit - Design

What if we started with 52 Markers on his card.

Just kidding. I like the special attack as it is, but I see how your version is simpler.

Re: The Book of Gambit - Design

Yeah, it just seems like having four different things going on is a bit much ... I think the "blank" still represents the explosive power of the attack.
As much as I'd love to get another hero at 200 points besides Batman, I doubt this guy is worth more than Punisher as is.

Yea, plus the whole Deadly Shot thing is over done. Blanks in attacks are fresh.

So should I power Gambit up or lower his cost?

Re: The Book of Gambit - Design

Well for Mutants, there are currently two at 165, two at 170, two at 180, and one at 190. If possible, it'd be great to see him at 200. Going to 5 life, which wouldn't seem out of place at all to me, would be a good start, IMO. I'm not sure after that, but going to 5/5 would really help his survivability.
Not being landlocked is the one thing that gives him a distinct edge over Punisher. But Staff Vault is conditional enough that it's a tough one.

Re: The Book of Gambit - Design

I had seen this last week, but I will say it again. Really great writeup of Gambit! This is the best writeup for him I have ever seen hands down.


Quote:
4 OF A KIND SPECIAL ATTACK
Range 4. Attack 2.
If you roll at least 1 blank with 4 of a Kind Special Attack, the defending figure receives one automatic wound. When Gambit attacks with 4 of a Kind Special Attack, he may attack 3 additional times. Gambit may not attack the same figure more than twice.
suggested wording change and also a suggested change on letting him target multiple targets or all on the same target. I really don't think it would be too powerful to let him concentrate all of these little attacks on one guy. He is only gonna average 1.12 blanks per turn anyways.

Gambit may not vault more than 8 levels up or down in a single vault. After using Staff Vault, you may add 1 to Gambit's normal attack this turn. When Gambit starts to Staff Vault, he will take any leaving engagement attacks.
Since he can only Staff Vault if he is unengaged anyways, is the last line necessary?

Re: The Book of Gambit - Design

If we're talking power increase, would this help?

Quote:

When rolling attack dice for 4 of a King Special Attack, every blank rolled inflicts an automatic wound on the defending figure. When Gambit attacks with 4 of a Kind Special Attack, he may attack 3 additional times.

Good catch it was a tweak of stealth leap or some other official power and I just forgot when I reworded it that it wasn't needed.

I like it. Brutal against Green Lanterns.

Made both these updates.

200 is looking a lot more likely to me now.
