The Book of James Murphy

The Book of James Murphy
Zanafor's Discovery - Collection 4 - "Lawmen and Samurai"


Spoiler Alert!
If you cannot see the Army Card graphic, check Hasbro's Unit Page for stats and special powers, plus "character biography" and other non-game unit info.

Character Bio: James Murphy has left trouble in his wake since he left Five-Strings, Kansas at the age of 13. Living on and off the roailroads, using only his guile and his whip, James Murphy is his own boss, his own leader, and his own worst enemy. The only thing worse than a man with a whip is a mean man with a whip. (Hasbro)
_________________________________________________________________
-Rulings and Clarifications-
  • - SHOTGUN BLAST SPECIAL ATTACK: clear sight shot.
    James Murphy's Shotgun Blast Special Attack requires a "clear sight shot" to his target. Does the phrase "clear sight" indicate that James Murphy needs only line of sight to any part of the figure rather than the hit zone?
    No. James Murphy needs line of sight to the targeted figure's hitzone to use this attack. (Grungebob)

This guy seems like an odd choice for Vydar to me. A Disciplined Historical figure seems like a shoe in for Einar.

I think they were trying to get a cowboy in for everyone. Murphy fits Vydar best.

So Can Murph Whip somebody (personA) adjacent to him and then use his shotgun blast on somebody (personB) adjacent to the person he whipped (person A) but not adjacent to him henceforth Murph would suffer no damage and person A would not be able to defend the shotgun blast? (I hope that makes sense.)

That's a good question. I would say yes, but then person A isn't being targetted for the attack...

Doesn't a Special Attack have to attack an engaged figure first though?

True, but the situation would be the same if both A and B were enganged with Murphy. He could Whip one, Blast them both, and he still wouldn't be affected ("Murphy is never affected by his own Shotgun Blast").

Let's say person A is a Zettian Guard and you would like to get rid of his High DEF, but person B is adjacent to person A and several others that person A is not adjacent to. So you would wan tto whip A but shotgun B.

Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't special attacks able to target anyone in range of said attack? I thought that normal attacks were required to be used against engaged figures but special attacks were exempt from this rule.

Consider yourself corrected. For any attack (Normal or Special) you are required to attack engaged figures before you attack anyone else.

The exception is special powers, which are not attacks. The example I like to use is Nilfhelm and Braxas. Nlifhelm's Ice Breath is a special attack, which can attack up to 3 different figures. If Nlf is engagaed with 1 figure, he better makes sure he kills that one or he won't be able to use attacks 2 & 3. Braxas has a special power, that can be used at range, so she can roll the D20 for acid breath on any figure in range, even if she is engaged by a different figure.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons; for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
