_________________________________________________________________

Character Bio - As the first child of Queen Luand'r & King Myand'r of Tamaran, Princess Komand'r was supposed to inherit the throne. However she suffered a childhood illness that left her unable to absorb ultraviolet radiation to fly as most Tamaraneans and was deemed unfit to inherit the throne. Komand'r's younger sister, Princess Koriand'r (later known as Starfire) was named heir to the throne which triggered a lifelong rivalry between the sisters.

When they were about nine years of age, the sisters were sent to the Warlords of Okaara to be trained in the martial arts. Besting her sister in battle, Koriand'r cemented the hatred of Komand'r - prompting her to attempt murder against her sibling. Expelled by the Warlords of Okaara, Komand'r allied herself with the Citadel, aiding them in breaking through Tamaran's defenses. As part of the treaty that followed, Koriand'r was surrendered to the Citadel and enslaved by Komand'r. In captivity, Koriand'r was tortured and humiliated for six years before she, and her sister, were captured by Psions, a race known for their cold-blooded dedication to scientific experimentation.

The Psions conducted experiments to determine the Tamaraneans' maximum abilities to absorb solar energy. During the experiment the Citadel retaliated against the Psions. The Psions fled and the sisters were left to die. The experiment backfired giving Koriand'r the ability to project solar energy through her hands as Starbolts. She used this ability to free her sister and was rewarded with betrayal and imprisonment.

Komand'r also developed an ability to focus solar power into dark Starbolts, becoming the warrior known as Blackfire.

Re: The book of Blackfire - design phase

Looks good to me. Tamaranean Hatred is fun, helps nail the theme without making her too niche.

I find it a BIT odd that Dual Starbolt can hit four figures... just name-wise. Starbolt Barrage or something would clear that up, but it's might just be me, so take the suggestion with a grain of salt.

And I assume you're using the older, 25 cent figure and not the new $30+ one?

The dual is for the 2 attacks. the fact that 1 attack can hit 2 figures is just the explosive effect of a starbolt.

Re: The book of Blackfire - design phase

I'm a little confused by the theme of Tamaranean Hatred. I get why she goes berserk if she's wounded, but it seems weird that she could choose an enemy Tamaranean to get the additional attacks, but then just attack a different figure.

Otherwise, she looks cool.

Re: The book of Blackfire - design phase

Looks solid to me. Starfire can be insane at times with her mutliple attacks, but without the Titan synergy and Reckless Engagement, Blackfire should be more balanced.

I do think it would be cool if Tamaranean Hatred was better against Tamaraneans. Something like this:

Quote:
TAMARANEAN HATRED
Before attacking with Blackfire, you may choose either Blackfire or an opponent's Tamaranean within 4 clear sight spaces of Blackfire. After Blackfire attacks with her normal attack, she may attack one additional time for each Wound Marker on the chosen figure's Army Card, up to a maximum of two additional attacks in a single turn, or three additional attacks if the chosen figure is a Tamaranean.

I did have a power that was more against Tamaraneans but was talked out of that because it was too niche & this is more in-line with her sisters power. I now see this as because there is a Tamaranean on the opponents army that angers her & fuels her hatred.

I am not opposed to that, except that Blackfire should be more ruthless than Starfire, so the dropping down to 2 attacks for anybody is kind of a bit watery compared to Starfire. I suppose I am hoping that Blackfire will come out about the same cost as Starfire even though Starfire has the ability to Fly.

Re: The book of Blackfire - design phase

If it helps, I think Starfire is undercosted/should be limited to 2 extra attacks. I'm good either way here though.

Hmm...

I get the theme, but personally it doesn't come through with the current power. I think what doesn't work for me is the fact that it's based on wounds, which just comes off weird when she chooses an enemy.

What about doing it like this?

Quote:
TAMARANEAN HATRED
Blackfire adds 1 to her Attack number when attacking a Tamaranean figure. After attacking with Blackfire's normal attack, you may attack with Blackfire's normal attack one additional time for each Wound Marker on this card, up to a maximum of two additional attacks in a single turn.

Re: The book of Blackfire - design phase

I see it as schadenfreude, personally. "There is nothing more invigorating than seeing you in pain, sister!" Stuff like that.

I think it works fine as drafted.

We could call it Tamaranean Anguish. I think that would better convey both choosing herself or an opponents Tamaranean.

So what is the consensus on the actual power dropping to 2/3 additional attacks?

I was thinking that if we were thinking it needs to be dropped that it could just simply be straight out 2/3 additional attacks without the reliant on the number of wounds. Mainly because I don't like adding arbitrary limits to something that is based on a count of something else anyway. Especially when they are only 1-3 extras. Something like this is what I was thinking:
Quote:
TAMARANEAN HATRED (/ANGUISH)
Before attacking with Blackfire, if there are two or more wound markers on this card or opponent's Tamaranean figure is within 4 clear sight spaces of Blackfire. After Blackfire attacks with her normal attack, she may attack two additional times, or three additional attacks if she is attacking a Tamaranean.
I also had another thought for the Starbolts:
Quote:
DUAL STARBOLT SPECIAL ATTACK
Range 8. Attack 3.
After attacking a figure with this special attack, if you inflicted one or more wounds on the defending figure, roll one unblockable attack die against each adjacent figure without the Super Strength special power. After attacking with this special attack, you may attack one additional time with this special attack.
Let me know what you guys think.
