Character Bio - Vines are commonly found in nature, such as highly vegetative areas throughout the world. In certain cases, people are able to manipulate these vines to an animated state, to do their bidding. Much like many plants, they are easily disposed of, but are able to continually regrow from their roots over time.

Re: The Book of Animated Vines (Breathing)

NAME = ANIMATED VINES

SPECIES = PLANT
UNIQUENESS = UNIQUE SQUAD (3)
CLASS = VINE
PERSONALITY = WILD

SIZE/HEIGHT = MEDIUM 6

LIFE = 1

MOVE = 0
RANGE = 1
ATTACK = 1
DEFENSE = 3

POINTS = 55


JUNGLE PLANTS
Whenever a special power on an Army Card refers to a Jungle Piece, it refers to the Animated Vines as well.

CHLOROKINETIC MOVEMENT
Before taking a turn with a figure you control that has the Plant Animation special power, you may place up to 3 figures you control with this special power on empty spaces within 3 spaces of their original placements. Animated Vines cannot move or be moved in any way except by this special power. This special power cannot be used more than once per player turn.

PLANT REGROWTH 15
For the entire game, at the end of each round, you may roll the 20-sided die once for each destroyed Animated Vine on this card. If you roll 15 or higher, place that Animated Vine on any empty space adjacent to a figure you control with the Plant Animation special power, if possible.

SUPERSTRENGTH

Re: The Book of Animated Vines (Breathing)

Since when the third is gone they're gone for good, I'd quite like to see better odds of bringing one back.

Re: The Book of Animated Vines (Breathing)

It depends. I intended for them to be able to keep coming back even if the 3rd is destroyed. If we have it so they can't come back if the 3rd is destroyed, then I agree, a lower roll would be necessary.

I'd actually like them to be able to come back if they're all destroyed - I do prefer that direction - but, in that case, you're going to need to make that clear in the power, since powers on Army Cards that are destroyed are no longer considered relevant unless otherwise stated.

Re: The Book of Animated Vines (Breathing)

For personality maybe something like Subservient.

I like the idea of having them continue to come back into play as long as you have a Plant Animations figure in play to summon them. Lazy is correct that it would need to be spelled out in the power.

A little confused as to how they move. Do they start the game in the start zone? The first power says they never move, but then the second power sounds like they move 3 spaces.

I think Rooted should read:

Animated Vines are considered to be Jungle Pieces and their Move number may never be increased.
Also, why not give them a Range of 1 and an Attack #? Then they might even get an order marker!

They can't move on their own. They can never move, even by figures that allow figures to move. However, they can be placed. Such as before a figure with Plant Animations takes a turn, or by other powers such as Magneto's throw etc. Idea being they are vines coming from out of the ground. Chlorokinesis would essentially have them going underground and popping up within 3 spaces away.

The theme is they are simply vines when not being animated by someone that has the ability to do so. You draft them with the likes of Ivy or Floronic Man, placing them as you take turns, and using Plant Animations to attack with them. So everything you need is done through the one actually animating them.

Re: The Book of Animated Vines (Breathing)

I get that. I'm just saying they'd be more fun if they could attack on their turn. They are already animated so why not?

Re: The Book of Animated Vines (Breathing)

I'm not against it. I just kind of like the "cut the head off the snake, and the body dies" aspect they currently have. Without Ivy/Floronic, they can't go anywhere, attack, or come back to life.

As I said though, I'm not opposed to it if that's what people want to do.

Re: The Book of Animated Vines (Breathing)

I like Wild as a personality here - it's a term used to describe non-cultivated plants, can be used in the sense of 'Wild growth' - it sounds a bit more interesting and colourful here than Subservient. I'd like to see a personality that sounds like you're describing plants, even if it's an all-new, weird one.

Another thing worth mentioning is that, as written, they would still always make LEAs, so that could be construed as a theme-break if you're going for them only being animated by Ivy/Floronic and their animator is dead - I suppose you could explain it away by Batman being careless and cutting himself on thorns.
