For something a little different - I'm currently enjoying Dice Throne.

Lighter than Mage Wars, no deck building, but lots of fun.

At least no one has been seen using a Frost spell.

Rules Notes and Clarification / Stagger & Effect Dice
« on: March 01, 2017, 10:12:02 AM »
A simple question, but I'm having trouble finding the answer.

If I have a major creature that has been Staggered, he will roll 2 less attack dice on his next turn.

But do I also subtract 2 from the Effect Dice on that attack?

It would be nice if there was a "upgrade pack" that included both the new spellbooks and the extra / errated cards so that purchasers of the original game could be aligned with the new version

I also used the Tracker during a game recently, which I found to be very helpful.  It was easy to use, allowed both players to easily see the stats of both mages, and helped to ensure that mana used was actually recorded.  Also much less fiddly than having the bits in front of you.

As has been stated previously, it would be nice if you could set up a modifier that automatically adjusts the mage's damage score each round (such as healing from a Regrowth Belt, or additional damage from Rot).  This automated functionalty exists for mana, and having the same functionality for damage would be helpful.

Yeah,  having the Mage Picture Card & Mage Ability Card automatically appear as the first 2 items in each spellbook (adding zero to the total spellbook cost) would be very nice.

I used the App for the first time last weekend to build some spellbooks. Overall, it was a good experience, and the recent update corrected some initial flaws in the App.

1. It would be nice to have a "save as" feature for the spellbooks, so you don't have to start every one from scratch. Sometimes you just want to tweak an existing spellbook, but keep the original intact.

2. I would also like to be able to pull up each Mage's reference card when creating the spellbooks. I couldn't remember what some specific abilities were, and it would have been very helpful to have had easy access to each Mage's card (less necessary but also nice would be the Mage's picture card).

3. Cards from the Promo Packs (which are available for purchase from the MW store) should be included in the App.

4. That said, I would also like the ability to add a "freeform text card", where I could type some notes and assign a value. As it stands now, if I want to use any cards not in the App, my spellbook total will not reach 120, and I might forget what I intended to do. If I had a blank card where I could type "Raincloud", and assign my own value for this card, I could then better manage those cards not currently included in the App. I could also use this blank card to leave notes for myself such as "remember to add curses" etc.

5. The text search function works fairly well, but doesn't facilitate searching by card type. Sometimes, I just want to look at all "Creatures" or "Equipment" without having to search by school.

Once you start inputting text in the search box, the related cards start appearing automatically. I don't see the purpose of the magnifying glass icon at the top of the column. Maybe this could be replaced with an icon that gives you direct access to the various Mage reference cards.

Hi Shad0w

I would love a set (or two - one for a friend).  What do I have to do?

Does anyone know whether the cards included in Conquest of Kumanjaro are unique to this set, or will they also be available through other means (for example, Necromancer vs. Druid)?

Custom Cards / Dresden

I would love a Wizard patterned after the Harry Dresden character from the book series.

Even now, when reading the books, I can see his battles in terms of Mage Wars spell cards.
