General Discussion / Re: card list

It's a little bit of a work around, but you can go to www.spellbookbuilder.com and select an Academy mage and then select "usable".  That'll eliminate some Mage only stuff, but changing the mage should find it again.

My favorite card is Selesius. I've always wanted to have her be the focal point to a book.

I need to disagree with a few folks here. Focused Strike is the best art.

this does NOT give you an extra action, if anything it takes the same action and mana as I would use on Mana efficiency. You can only cast 2 spells a turn, so holding 3,4, or 10 cards in your hand doesn't matter. It gives you options however to punish the over committed mage, but not much else.

Just to be sure I didn't play it wrong all the the time: you actually can cast three spells, as long as they are all quick cast spell, can't you?

No you cannot.  You have a Quick Cast action that allows a spell and a Full action which allows a Full Action spell OR a Move and ONE quick action spell.

So there are a few issues with Promos.  Anyone with a Leviathan in their book will need to wait for another update soon.  Sorry!

Zuberi is basically correct.

It's taking much longer than any of us desired or planned. I also want everyone to be able to play with the new cards because they are fun and have the potential to redefine a lot of tired metagame books.

Hi grga!  Thanks again for all of your work on this.  I found out that Redistributed Power is called Mind Seize in the cards list, but the image is correct.  There is also a Mind Seize.

I also do not see Telekinetic Bomb on the list of available enchantments

Rules Discussion / Re: Gurmash Battle orders
« on: September 20, 2017, 10:30:09 PM »
The way I see it, Gurmash, Orc Seargeant's text is only limiting him to casting the battle orders of his controlling warlord instead of any other warlord's battle orders.  So someone running a bloodwave warlord cannot gain access to the anvil throne orders by running gurmash.  It's as if he's studied with his summoning warlord and has learned a few tricks of the trade for himself.  In which case, #2 (gurmash copies the ability and adds it to his card) is a completely valid interpretation.

In the other interpretation what the text of his ability is doing is linking Gurmash as an extention of the Warlord's stat card and allowing the quick spell to be cast from a different source using a different action marker.  If that's the case, though....which zone does the effect take place in?  Gurmash's or the Warlord's?

for reference:
Warlord Ability Card

League / Tournament Play / Re: Midwest Tornaments

I'm looking into organizing a tournament, but I am extremely busy these days and I don't know if I'll be able to pull off a large scale, marketable tournament with announcements and prizes and such.  If I did it would be around Chicago.

The Battle Orders ability says that the Warlord can use it once per round.  Gurmash says that he can use Battle orders.  There is no stipulation that I can find which prohibits them from both using it.  The way I read it you effectively copy the "Battle Orders" text from the Warlord card to Gurmash's card replacing "Warlord" with "Gurmash".

According to the above understanding, if you really feel it's a good use of resources, you could get Tough -6 and Armor +2.

I can see a different interpretation as well.  It is that perhaps Gurmash has access to the "Battle Orders" section of the Warlord's card and it should be read as "Once per turn, Gurmash or his controlling Warlord may...."

Of course I personally think it should be interpreted the first way.

Spellbook Design and Construction / Re: Warlord Academy book

First impressions is that you'll never get all of those creatures out in a game.  I'd stick with a couple different ideas for creatures and then trade a lot of those creatures for attack spells.  This gives you the ability to attack with a strong hit (torgo or izimbila) and then follow it up with a quick attack spell.  Could save you a lot of pain in the long run.

Otherwise I like your choices.  It might take too long to get all that equipment put on given your mana constraints, but definitely have a go and tell us how it works out!

Mages / Re: academy mages conversion to arena stats?
« on: September 15, 2017, 07:25:00 AM »
There is no official method for "graduating" the academy mages. At this point in time I suggest that you agree ahead of time with your opponent(s) on what you will do. If it proves too weak or too strong adjust it for the next game.

World and Lore / Re: Who is Kallek, the Lord of Wonder

My best guess is that he (she /it?) is the supreme ruler of dsjer-tet and is revered as a demigod.
