Araxian Crown Warlock: Vampire Might
« on: June 08, 2018, 10:10:35 PM »
So this is a book I've been knocking around and I have to say it's probably the most fun book I've run in a long long time. To me the Araxian will always be "Big Sexy" a hard hitting man who can scrap with the best of them. Even using your average Blood Reaper he still has more like than most mages. This book is about vampires, every big man needs a good woman and this book has two:

First off, yes I know that's a lot of out of school enchantments. Bite me(hehehe bite me, vampire book) not a one of them is coming out. It's really easy to get a 7 dice 3 piercing vampire on the field this way. Throw on some armor and maybe even that Regrowth and it's just not going to die soon. I just now added the Cheetah Speed to combo with a vampire's flying ability. I'm a little light on curses and they mainly seem more focused on buffing my guys rather than hurting you. The demons are there to back of the vampires and I still hold a Dark Pact Slayer is the best blood reaper in the game, especially if you put the Regrowth or Vampirism on him. Typically Vampirism goes on me though.

Like I said earlier this book is SOOOOO much fun to play. Just when your opponent is focused on vampires you start blasting with fireballs. They have to armor up a lot to get past all the piercing I can throw down. It's also super easy to slowly buff yourself up until you're a juggernaut as well. I've had decent success with this book, it's lost a grand total of 2 matches out of like 9.

Ill BITE  ;D

Rather than 4x Bear Strength and 4x Critical Strike.

What would you say to:
3 x Bear Strength
3 x Critical Strike
1 x Wolfs Fury
1 x Lion Savagery

Necropian Vampiress do rock :)

No.  8) I can actually get extra piercing and melee from Demonic Bloodlust. Yeah it makes em Bloodthirsty...but vampires so it fits. 9 dice and 4 piercing is gonna crack open anything you want really. I might try squeezing in some type of double strike. Then Wolf's Fury would be useful.

I see a nature mage trying to be a dark mage.

Granted, I'm no dark mage expert or anything, but it looks like your Straywood made a pact with the devil and turned his bears into vampires.  Where's the Magebane or the Ghoul Rot?  Drain Life?  Chains of Agony for the blokes trying to run away from your uber-vampires? I'd swap the Hellstar for a Lash of Fire to synergize better with your Fireshaper Ring.

Yeah I figured there would be a call for more curses. It's just not the way I'm going here though some may get worked in. It's actually got more buffs than my Straywood for now. I may put the lash in but the star is just so cheap.

I would trade out the heal for some drain spells

So the Heal is the biggest "wth" in the book I grant. Initially when I made this book I was 12 points short. So I figured "why not" and put it on a wand. I get on average two to three shots with it before it gets destroyed. Usually I'm able to save a near dead vampire with it and that's the real advantage, it lets me heal my friends at a 0-2 range. It straight up pisses people off when I do it too lol.

I'll grant the books unorthodox but that's the fun part. I could make it look like every other Araxian book out there but frankly I'm having too much fun. I'm bringing it to Origins with me for casual play.

I would actually have four Necropian Vampires and four Blood Demons, which would give me some numbers and some real hard hitters.  I would have four Rusts, since I can recycle them because they are curses, and limit the other enchantments to two copies each so I can add more curses.  I would also want two Mana Crystals and two Tangelvines, and a few more attack spells.

Current number of creatures allows me to quickly engage the enemy. 8 hard casts just isn't going to happen.
