Have u seen the ballista?  That is op.  We use promo in our play group for causal play but even then we have to Nerf ballista to 2 Peirce 4 dice. Which is still very powerful.

You have a quick action which can only cast your quick cast spells. And a full action which allows you to move one zone then cast a quick cast spell or take a second move action to move a total of 2 zones. Your other full action option is to cast a full cast spell.  Just remember you only have 2 action markers, therefore only 2 spells can be cast by you mage in a round.

The warlock is all about upfront aggression so I made spell book to fit this. All the resource were spent on the front cover and the back cover was left plain.  Soft suede lined the inside covers, and the built in bookmark was tasselled. The warlock is about burning and destroying but she has to look good doing it.

Creative / Custom Druid Spell Book

When I was thinking about what a druids' spell book would look like, I realize a druid wouldn't have a spell book.  So then I thought about the plants vs. zombie expansion she came in.  The other theme for that expansion was life vs. death.  ok so I thought 'in the light the vine of life grows' so I choose bright yellow leather for the spell book.  I then spray painted some metal vine decals green and glued them on.  I then sew 2 buttons onto the cover and glued metal flowers on them.  I use a leather strap attached to the back cover to wrap around the metal flowers to lock the book when its closed.  This spell looks much better than the pics show.

This was not originally intended to be a necro Book, it ended up perfectly as one.

I choose Lamb skin leather this time (well something had to be sacrificed to the necro).  I put a small metal plate under the front cover in the middle and cut out the Chinese symbol for wizard or mage.  I really wanted to cut out the Chinese character "war" too, but it would have been too complicated.  I added the skull cross by the "wizard" symbol to make the Unholy Wizard spell book otherwise known as the Necromancer spell book.  The book is so evil that it had to be bounded with chains.  This wrap around tie string was originally going  used on the druid book but I could not find a non tacky vine to use. A friend suggested using the chains as a tie string and it was perfect.

The second book I completed was my wizard spell book.

I wanted the wizard spell book to look simple and sturdy, functional and well used.  I used 3 different brown tone leather.  Built in a bookmark and used metal decals for the corners.  I sealed this spell book with the mystical bonding material only the wizard knows about,... Velcro

Thank you for the kind words.  Making this books were a lot of fun.  These creation has several phases. First is the planning the basic vision of what each mage's spell book would look like.  For example the beastmistress would have a very tribal or primitive book.  So I just didn't want a smooth leather bound book. I took the roughest piece suede i could find and cut it into big chunks.  Then I refit them together and hand sewed it.  The leather was tough and my hands got tired so I had to do it in several session.

The second phase was getting the material and supplies.  Lucky for me I have access to a variety of leathers.  For the first few books I used dollar store epoxy to glue the leather to the AW spell books, but now I just used a good glue stick.  All the other assessories and details are bought at Walmart, Michaels arts and craft or the dollar store craft section.  I just keep my eyes open for anything that would look good the spell books and I didn't want anything that looked tacky.  I like to use metal details which surprisingly can also be fasten with a glue stick.  I had to sew a little on the other books and sometime I use two sided tape.  Because the leather was free for me and Michaels has great weekly coupons each book only cost me like $5 or less in material and supplies. 

Third phase is edit.  I had to make several changes because some things didn't work out the way I wanted.  For example the epoxy can get messy and mess up the project. The first spot on the panther paw was an accident.  I had epoxy residue on my finger that marked the paw so I rolled with it and added more spots.  Most people don't know panthers have black spots on their black fur. In my later books I do a lot less editing because my planning became better with experience.  However I did have a fellow MW player friend give me some more ideas after he sees them.

These book were fun to make but a little time consuming.  They are a labor of love because I love mage wars.

As an old school D&D player, I love the idea of the spell book.  Some people says the draw of cards from the spell book makes them feel like an apprentice more than a master mage.  I think of it more as draw and using all the spell componets to cast the spell.  really getting into the roleplaying of MW.  To make it more thematic I modified a spell book for the huntress (JBM).

I took pieces of rough suede and hand sew them together, then wrapped it around the cover of the spell book. I then made a panther paw print and placed it on the back cover.  I tried to use a sodering iron and tried to brand the MW logo on the paw print. finally I hand cut a leather strip to bind the spine of the book.

So far I have created 6 custom spell books, each to a specific mage.  Thought put into what each mage would want in their spell book and why.  The pics of my custom spell books are too big to upload now,  I have to take new pictures when I have time so I can upload to show them.

General Discussion / battle grounds
« on: June 18, 2014, 01:56:56 PM »
I know AW announced battlegrounds and domination game modes but will this include the dungeon crawl mode that was suggested earlier?  Last night I played a 3 player game and one of my friends made his sole goal to kill my Druid's vine tree and my tataree butterfly.  He mange to kill my vine tree with help from the third player but left my tataree with one life.  My druid ended up wining the game but he was satisfied with my hacks up vine tree.  We all had a laugh but got me thinking about a secret mission game mode where your goal is a secret and your opponents are trying to figure out your goal and stopping you while trying to complete their own secret goal.  What are the other game modes in battlegrounds and anything like this in battlegrounds?
