Re: The Book of Glyph of Utility: Missile-Jamming Remote (FE

NAME = GLYPH OF UTILITY: MISSILE-JAMMING REMOTE
SUBTITLE = BOMBARDMENT DISRUPTION

EQUIPMENT GLYPH

When an opponent chooses a single space for a special power on any Army Card or glyph, they may not choose a space within 1 space of this figure. If this figure is a Valiant Crime Fighter, they may not choose a space within 2 spaces of this figure.

Re: The Book of Glyph of Utility: Missile-Jamming Remote (FE

Didn't realize until I was putting this thread up, but neither of our other testers actually hit this glyph in testing. It's pretty straightforward, but we might still want someone else to run a quick game with it just to see it in action?

Also, I don't think anyone brought this up before (but apologies if someone did and I missed it), but are we okay with the wording here?

It's meant to block powers like Mongul's or Kang II's that explicitly say to 'choose a space', but not just whatever placement powers that say to do things like 'place a figure on an empty space'. I think that comes through in the wording, but I'm open to thoughts there.

My one question is if it blocks SAs that are 'choose a space,' i.e. Harley's Smilex Bomb.

Re: The Book of Glyph of Utility: Missile-Jamming Remote (FE

I agree it always seemed kind of funky to me. I don't think we explicitly need more tests but it wouldn't hurt - maybe have someone use it in a non-'66 context in another test? It's fairly niche.

Is it meant to include, say, Harley's bomb that chooses a space, or Etrigan's fire?

Re: The Book of Glyph of Utility: Missile-Jamming Remote (FE

Full list of 'choose a space' powers would be:

AIM Agents' Weaponized Virus SA, Etrigan's Hellfire Burst SA, Glyph of Orbital Laser Control, Glyph of Utility: Flash-Bang, Harley's Smilex SA, Kang's (II) Damocles Orbital Assault, Mongul's Warworld Orbital Assault, Mystic Flames SA, The Top's Explosive Top SA, Trickster's (Axel) Toy Bomb SA

(Tightly thematic ones that I'm really after highlighted in red - the rest weren't powers I really wanted to effect, but don't mind having in there)

Couple more bombs in there than I realized at first. Definitely don't mind hitting those, but we could rule out SAs if we're worried. That does make the thing very tightly thematic, and niche enough that I wouldn't really sweat another test. (Down to affecting only three powers)

Re: The Book of Glyph of Utility: Missile-Jamming Remote (FE

I'd personally prefer it if it affected SAs, too. Still pretty niche.

Re: The Book of Glyph of Utility: Missile-Jamming Remote (FE

I would say it's a tighter theme without the SAs but a lot more valuable with them. I'll defer here, happy with either.

I think the wording is about as tight as we can get it. My only alternative would something like that.

"If an opponent would use any special power on an army card or glyph that directs them to choose a space, the space chosen cannot be within 1 space of this figure, or 2 spaces if this figure is a Valiant Crime Fighter."

But I don't know if that's clearer or not (or if "directs" is the right term to use).

Maybe...

Art-wise, this one isn't very exciting. Probably just a little remote with a button on it?

I was just envisioning something like this:



That's kind of obviously a keyfob for a car, but, y'know, it doesn't need to be anything fancy.

Re: The Book of Glyph of Utility: Missile-Jamming Remote (FE

That's still a little wonky but it does sound closer than the original. I dunno, how does it read to others?

Re: The Book of Glyph of Utility: Missile-Jamming Remote (FE

I like it affecting special attacks.

I think it's clear that "choose" is a specific Heroscape term and that if the power doesn't tell you to "choose a space" then this power doesn't trigger in response.

I like what you have.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.
