General Discussion / Priestess due this month?
« on: April 12, 2016, 09:23:38 PM »
Did I read somewhere that the Priestess is scheduled for release this month (April 2016)?

If so, is this still true?

Is there another place that I'm supposed to post questions like this, or is the whole topic generally considered a no-no?  (If either case is true, I apologize).

General Discussion / Modes of play (Academy, Domination, Arena)
« on: March 31, 2016, 09:22:22 PM »
So, I'm curious, do most posters here play all three modes ... or do you tend to focus on one or two?

It's no secret that I spend a lot of time on Domination, but I'm wondering about the other regulars.  I definitely see posts for Academy, so I know there is some variety out there.

How often do you play each?

Rules Discussion / A couple questions regarding Vines
« on: March 21, 2016, 02:13:50 PM »
(Old thread on Elusive suggested I create a new thread when replying.)

1. Since Vine growth ignores LOS, does this mean Walls do not hinder Vine placement?

2. Has the interaction of Vines and Elusive been revisited?  Do Vines still Hinder creatures with Elusive?


Rules Discussion / Malaki Burn Tokens and attack spells
« on: March 15, 2016, 10:28:58 PM »
Can Malaki use his Burn Token placement ability when casting an Attack Spell, such as Pillar of Light?

Alternative Play / Team Domination, Immortal Mages
« on: March 13, 2016, 09:27:55 PM »
This week we are trying a 2 vs. 2 variant of Domination.

1. All standard Team rules in effect.
2. All standard Domination rules in effect.
3. Undying Mages in effect (variant version).
4. A team that "kills" a Mage receives one of their team's V'tarr in transfer.  If they have zero, take one from the box instead.

Why do this?

When playing Teams & Domination, we often have 1 Mage killed, which leaves that player sitting idle for the remainder of the game (which is less fun than playing for us).  Further, it is not uncommon for the team losing a Mage to eventually win anyway.  This variant both keeps all the players involved for the entire game, and discourages using one Mage as a "sacrifice"/ rewards the team for defeating a Mage.

I'll post any notes or observations after a couple plays.  Feel free to let me know if you have tried this or something very similar.

Rules Discussion / Vines and Obscured
« on: March 11, 2016, 03:54:04 PM »
It's Friday, so time for Mage Wars questions from yours truly.

Can a Druid cast into an Obscured Zone via Vines, or must the Caster actually be adjacent?


Rules Discussion / V'tar Orbs and Guards
« on: March 04, 2016, 09:42:06 PM »
Can you Guard an Orb with one of your Creatures?

What if the Orb is unclaimed? 

Thanks again.

Rules Discussion / Minor Creature, Guard, Stagger
« on: March 04, 2016, 04:58:56 PM »
If a Minor Creature is Guarding, and hit with an melee attack that Staggers it, does it get a Counterstrike?

Rules Discussion / Conjurations, Corrosive Pool or Molten Rock
« on: March 04, 2016, 03:45:43 PM »
Are these terrain intended to affect Conjurations as well, or only Creatures?

Rules Discussion / Flying, LOS, & Unmoveable
« on: March 04, 2016, 03:01:06 PM »
A couple questions:

1. Does Flying grant LOS to Zones behind (adjacent) and or beyond, Walls?  I believe the rulebook only mentions other Flying Creatures.  Apologies if I am overlooking the relevant part.

2. Can a Flying Creature be Unmoveable at the same time?

Thanks in advance.

Rules Discussion / Guard, Taunt, & Sweep
« on: February 25, 2016, 03:05:40 PM »

Creature with Sweep has Power Strike and a Taunt marker (from Sosruko) on him, and occupies the Zone with the Ferret and another enemy.

Questions regarding interactions and Attack Actions:

1. When he Sweeps, must the Ferret be the first target, or just one of the two targets?

2. If the Ferret IS targeted first, and succeeds at the Defense roll, are the +2 Melee dice from Power Strike lost, or do they simply move over to the second attack?

3. If the other target has a Guard token, how does the situation change?

4. What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

Appreciate it.
