The Book of The Varja

The Book of The Varja

C3V Wave 6 - Crevcor's Commission - Goliaths of the Plains

Printer-Friendly PDF
Basic Side Card:
Spoiler Alert!

The figure used for this unit is a D&D Minis figure from the Savage Encounters set. The model name is Nightwalker.

Character Bio: People of Arctorus tell tales of a legendary entity that is like a thundercloud that walks the land. This creature is a violent living storm that destroys everything in its wake and stuns the strongest of men. Beware Valhalla, Vydar has summoned the Varja!


Quote:
PHANTOM WALK
The Varja can move through all figures and is never attacked when leaving an engagement.

LIVING STORM
At any point while moving, when the Varja leaves a space occupied by another figure, you must roll the 20 sided die. If you roll a 17 or higher, remove all Order Markers from that figure's Army Card (or cards if that figure has more than one Common card for that figure). Figures may not be affected by Living Storm more than once per turn.
_________________________________________________________________


-Rulings and Clarifications-
  • The Varja is on a large D&D base (Single hex)

Q: Can I affect more than one member of a common squad with Living Storm?
A: Yes,
you may roll for multiple members of a squad in a turn but you may not roll for any individual squad figure more than once

Q: Is it intentional that The Varja has a completely gray hit zone?
A: Yes.
The Varja may not be targeted for an attack by a non adjacent figure.

Q: Does Living Storm affect friendly figures that the Varja moves through?
A: Yes.

Q: If the Varja moves from one space occupied by a double-space figure to the other space it occupies, does it roll for Living Storm?
A: No.
The Varja only rolls for Living Storm when it leaves a figure, not when it moves "inside" of one.

Q: If the Varja leaves a space occupied by another figure and enters a space adjacent to an opponent's Greater Ice Elemental, which happens first, Living Storm or Ice Spikes?
A: Living Storm occurs first because leaving a space occurs before entering a new space.

Re: The Book of The Varja

Maybe this is a noob question but what am I missing here? Can he simply not be hit and is therefore indestructible?

Re: The Book of The Varja

You don't need line of sight when you are engaged---if you're standing next to him you can hit him.

Ok. I thought that may've been the case but the all grey silhouette threw me.

Re: The Book of The Varja

Note that you can hit him with Explosive Special Attacks if he's engaged with the targeted figure.

Re: The Book of The Varja

The Varja can also be attacked by any special attack or special power that refers to "clear sight spaces," like Sonlen's Dragon Swoop, since clear sight only requires you to see any part of the mini, gray or red.

Is there a special attack that refers to clear sight spaces? I thought all special attacks chose a target based on hit zones unless it was something like the grenade attack or the mind blasts that specifically say they don't need clear sight.

Re: The Book of The Varja

Not quite what you're after, but Mimring chooses based on spaces (and so the Varja is vulnerable to that).

Re: The Book of The Varja

Yeah, Mimring's is the only one that comes to mind off the top of my head. I know Deathwalker 9000 and the shotgun cowboys use the words "clear sight" in their special attacks, but that wording is incorrect; they need to see the red hitzones of their initial targets.

Re: The Book of The Varja

Also, the OP is incorrect; the Varja was designed and tested as a double-spaced figure.
