Siren's Call and passage attacks
« on: August 05, 2017, 09:00:43 PM »
Hi All

Question came up last night, as to whether a creature subject to the Siren's Call has to go through a wall with a passage attack if that is the only way to get closer to the Siren.

We ultimately ruled that it does, since the rules do not expressly say it doesn't (unlike, say, the rule for Thorg's Taunt), rather than on an obvious argument either way.

Is that right?

I guess driving men to their doom on the rocks is the canonical Siren thing to do...

The beauty of sirens call comes in that its very much like force pull. The only way around it is mind shield. So aside from waiting till there's an intervening creature, sirens call will absolutely drive you through a wall of any sort.

Chant of Rage works in the same way. You can put wall and Chant on creature in 2 zones away. Then this creature must move 2 zones to Siren and has attack from the wall. Then Siren can push this creature with Trident through the wall.

Yeah, the Siren works really well with wall attacks and Bed of Urchins then just luring people to their doom.
