Creature Card Ideas: War School
« on: July 09, 2013, 12:53:42 am »
As promised, more creature ideas! This time, for the War School:


Imperial Legionnaire (13 mana) (0-0 range) (zone) (soldier, knight) (level 3)

3 armor

10 health

9+ defense (1x)

Quick Attack (Gladius): 4 dice, Piercing +2 if the target is Restrained

Full Attack (Javelin Toss)(1-1 range): 3 dice, Piercing +2, Effect Die: 8+ Stuck

Lightning +2, Vigilant

"Sons and Daughters of Ivarium!  As I speak, the Blood Wave and undead hordes march on Westlock...she cannot hold out for long.  Remember the liberation of your fathers and be her shield!  We must show courage this day, that our people may be saved.  Hesitate, and you damn us all."

-General Lucius Pellii, addressing the Ivarium Senate



Ivarium Conscript (7 mana) (0-0 range) (zone) (soldier) (level 2)

1 armor

7 health

Quick Attack (Short Spear): 3 dice, Piercing +1

Charge +1

"With that spear, you serve your Empress.  Fight well, and you may yet earn your freedom.  Die well, and you will glorify the Empire.  Now, march!"

-Task Sergeant Brutus Mordus, Basic Training



Veteran Crossbowman (13 mana) (0-0) (zone) (soldier) (level 3)

2 armor

9 health

Full Attack (Crossbow)(1-1 range): 4 dice, Piercing +3 Effect Die: 8+ Push

Quick attack (Crossbow Bayonet): 3 dice, Piercing +1

Ivarium crossbow bolts are forged of black, mana-hardened steel.  Under the keen eye of a veteran, even heavy armor is of little use against these munitions, as they strike with such force that defenders are thrown back.


Orc Berserker (12 mana) (0-0 range) (zone) (soldier) (level 3)

2 armor

11 health

Quick Attack: 4 dice

Charge +1, Rage 2

It is not clear whether the berserkers are brave or insane; among the Orcs, there is little distinction between the two.


Roghrar & Whitescar, Frost-Forged Companions (17 Mana) (0-0 range) (zone) (soldier) (level 5)

3 armor

15 health

Quick Attack (Boar Tusks): 5 dice, Piercing +1

Full Attack (Icy Sledge)(Frost damage): 4 dice, Sweeping, Effect Die: Frost Effect stuff?

Legendary, Frost Immunity

It is said that after many campaigns, Roghrar the Bloodied sought still greater challenges.  He climbed to the summit of the Anvil Throne and fought there Whitescar, a huge, old frostboar as immovable and wrathful as the mountain it ruled.  For days, the two exchanged deadly blows that rang like thunder from the peaks...and then all went silent.  Roghrar returned atop Whitescar soon after, his green skin bleached gray.  Whitescar had honed the orc's anger upon the Anvil Throne, and upon finding in him an equal, imbued him with all the fury of the frigid North.


Orc Taskmaster (11 mana) (0-0 range) (zone) (soldier) (level 2)

1 armor

10 health

Quick Attack (Spiked Lash): 3 dice, Bleed 9+

You may use Orc Slaver's Spiked Lash attack as a full action.  If you do, and the target is an enemy creature, it gets -2 attack dice for nonspell ranged and melee attacks until the end of the round.  If the target is a friendly corporeal creature, cancel the attack, put 2 damage on that creature and it gains Melee +2 until the end of the round.

Orcs relish taskmaster duty; it's not every day you get to hit another Orc without the fear of getting hit back.


Vespana Pellii, Herald of Wrath (16 mana) (0-0 range) (zone) (soldier, knight) (level 4)

3 armor

12 health

8+ defense

Quick attack (Spear Thrust): 4 dice, Piercing +2

Fast, Charge +2, Mounted, Legendary

As a full action, and as long as Vespana is not restrained, you may have her initiate a charge. If you do, Knight creatures in her zone gain the Fast and Charge +1 until the end of the round.

The daughter of Lucius Pellii, born mute, did not rouse her knights with tales of past Ivarium glory before battle.  When the time for war came, she simply raised her spear toward the enemy and let loose the bellowing cry of her war horn, fueling her armies with a fury no words could pronounce.

question about pellii. do you want her to charge buff then move herself or just command other creatures to charge.

she seems expensive to only grant a charge buff.
Being Aussie we place all our cards face down, apart from enchantments which are face up

Not totally sure. The intent was to have her be pretty good on her own, but be especially good with Knights, since no creature currently works with that creature type specifically.  I mean, she's got a lot going for her (I actually thought I gave her too much lol). 

Maybe she could be part of the charge.  Im sure the playtest team will figure things out, huh? huh? :P
