Still think card two should be a Dark level 3 version of the Guardian Angel. We already have lots of level 4s and 5s that don't get to the table.

Oh, I thought they were beta for playtesting at this stage.

There was a revision? I must have missed it. Where might I find it?

Rules Discussion / The Embalmed again

Hi folks

Can you Embalm a swarm?

That is, a swarm “cannot be targeted or affected by non-attack spells that do not specifically target swarm creatures”

TheEmbalmed “removes a non-epic living creature in any discard pile from the game”

Now, the Embalmed does not say ‘target’ anywhere, but does the swarm’s use of ‘affected’ forbid an embalming of a dead swarm?

I still think Card 2 is a Fallen Angel brandishing her sword of dark flame outside the Gate to Hell.

"Fallen Angel"
Subclass: Angel
Dark 3.
12 mana
Armour 2 life 12
Sword of Dark Flame: melee 4 dice. 7-10 Burn; 11+ 2 Burn
Flame -2; Flying

Edit for stats.

Welcome to a great game!

For tips and strategies go have a look at the strategy section of this forum. Lots of goodies in there.
I recommend this thread in particular:

And if you have time, go onto youtube and watch a few of the online games posted up there.

Others will no doubt tell you about the discord channel.

As for local players, I can't help with that - I am on the other side of the planet.

Good luck! Have fun!

I also really hope we can make the angel anything other than Holy (they do not need more good creatures), I really like the idea of dark/fire school "fallen angel" to make them specifically for warlocks (I think they need the most help).

On a second look at the picture, I think I see the Gate to Hell artwork in the background.

Another option for Card 1:

“Not One Step Back”
Dissipate 2 or 3.
This creature gains the Immovable, Vigilant and Intercept traits.

First one is a one time enchantment. Reveal to redirect an attack against another object in the zone onto yourself. Then discard.

The second one is a Fallen Angel.

Dark 3.
12 mana
Flame -2; flying
Flaming sword: melee 3 dice. Burn 8+
Armour 2 life 12

Essentially a pocket version of Adramelech.

I agree with everything that ThisIsDeutch says, but I also wish to second the OP’s request/suggestion.

If AW put up a Kickstarter for this stuff it would be up to us as players to make it happen. No loss to AW if it does not get up. It might work, might not, but I certainly would be very happy to get those last fews bits and bobs I am missing, and any offcuts/‘deleted scenes’ that might be sitting in the vaults only partly playtested.

Well, I for one liked the survey and was pleased that AW asked for our input and happy to see the range of questions put in it.

I think MW2 has an opportunity to really consider some of what I see as the central weaknesses to an otherwise awesome game. In particular (and here I spruik my wares), an opportunity to embrace the core premise of the game: "A Game of Duelling Mages", through:
- opening up metamagic spells (the 'toolbox') to all schools
- making all summoned creatures temporary spells. Get rid of the 'my army is bigger than your army, and I will win through more actions' effect.

So more games of movement and spell and counterspell, rather than guarding and spawnpoint churn.

That was my 2c.

Ah, but speculation about what, if anything, AW will do for Mage Wars is the third major part of the game. There is spellbook design, actual play, and speculation...

Spells / Re: Arcane Missiles and Ranged +X
« on: January 27, 2020, 12:54:58 AM »
I think the clue is in the first sentence: "You may make THIS attack". It is a singular event, not a series of three different events. So yes, I read it as Sweeping in all but name.

It may be useful to compare the language of Arcane Missiles with that of Whirlwind Strike (also a three-target attack): "it may use THAT attack [note the singular again] against up to three different target objects. I attacks each target one after another, in the same manner as the Sweeping trait."

I've also been loving the unicorns lately for BM. Passive heal with an animal sub type creates a nice mobile medic. Not to mention you usually see other very viable targets besides the unicorn. It makes targeting a little uneasy for the opponent.

I run them as a pack using Priestess(It is what I call the "My Little Pony" book). My meta is low on area spells, so my opponents have had massive trouble when confronted by a zone containing Dorseus, Highland and Lowland(x2) all healing each other. Throw in a couple of Blessed Focus enchants...lots of fun. Currently 4 for 4 against all comers. Not a fast build, mind you.
