    Shako - - Rules Questions & Answers

    You're right, every dice can only be rerolled once. a) You have to reroll every successful because of Ice and Fire (so each 2-6) b) You can reroll every 1 (Dusk Forged); lets assume you want to use it. -> Result: Roll your armour saves and reroll EVERY dice once. Alternative: Talk to your opponent and say that instead of rerolling every single dice you just roll once and not reroll any (the result is the same). But rules as written you do have to reroll everything so if you haven't talked with y…

  • Quote from Kaneador: “if dark acolites take both cosmology spells do they have acces to the special attribute of cosmology too? ” All spells always habe their corresponding attribute unless noted otherwise. Doesn't matter who casts them or if cast as a Bound Spell or anything else.

    Quote from Traumdieb: “Quote from piteglio: “@Shako but wouldnt the Mask conflict with the Dice?! ” why? you can even reroll 1s with the breath weapon. Good idea ” No you can't. Lugar'S Dice are Close Combat Attacks not Melee Attacks ! So it's not like they conflict with each other, but they dont specifally help each other. I just figured that with S6 most of the to wound rolls you need to reroll are 1's and maybe a couple of 2's? Dice already let's you reroll the 1's so all you get are the coup…

    Quote from piteglio: “i like crazydwarf's suggestion of complementing deatcheater and lugarsdice with blessedinscriptions. but maybe kingslayer would work too? ” Could also replace the incriptions with Mask of the Furnace bumping up his armour another points and being a potent weapon against opponents with 1+ (or even worse with reroll). With Blunderbus this should be exactly 525 if I remember correctly. Whether it is actually better than Inscriptions I don't know, would need to do the numbers :…

  • Quote from Mercenary Armies: “May I pick a Marshall of eos with Imperial Prince and Great Tactician? ” "one choice only". So no you can't have a Marshall with both. However you can have a Marshall with Imperial Prince and a second Marshall with Great Tactician.

    Quote from Beaugamiel: “Seem to contradict one another? ” Here you have 2 different groups. The passus you quote: Quote from 9th Age Rulebook: “When several modifiers within a group are to be applied to a dice roll (e.g. for Aegis Saves, to-hit rolls, to-wound rolls), apply them in the order that results in the lowest success chance of the roll. ” is if 2 (or more) modifiers happen within a group (the groups are the 4 steps) For example "attacks made with this weapon are set to hit on 4+" and "a…

    Quote from Henrypmiller: “Quote from Hruggek: “I have just now seen in the Wildhorn section one option that I missed due to taking other options... They come defaultly with shields. You can exchange shields for paired weapons, paired weapons and throwing weapons or just throwing weapons. Why isn't there an option for shields and throwing weapons? Is it an oversight or did someone think they would be too strong with that option? ” I read it as the "throwing weapons" option is in addition to the s…

  • Quote from arwaker: “Quote from Shako: “B) Having 3 different Orc Warcrys and 3 different Goblin Warcrys, heck no thanks. ” Hm, could you explain this dislike a bit more, because that is exactly what I really would like to have. ” Lots of complexity for what I assume is little gain. As they're all supposed to be a Warcry there probably is some common ground between them. So if the mechanics are similar it will confuse people at times. On the other hand, if they're not similar then why are they a…

  • Quote from CariadocThorne: “Calling vanilla mage, OotFH and Asfad one option is pretty misleading. ” This. On the other hand I understand the want for Wizard Conclave (it simply is cool. Whether good or not, they're cool). HE is also kind of a good fit for those, at least before quite some others. Quote from Aenarion43: “Wizard conclave could work, but would need some good innate defenses (eg, 4++ that other elves have on their conclave). Personally, I’d like an infantry one that focused on defe…

  • Quote from Mazuri: “I have some models for 'The Empire' from Warhammer Fantasy Battle and am planning on using them for an Empire of Sonnstahl army to play T9A. They are either unassembled, partly assembled and some in various stages of painting. My question relates to the bases for artillery for T9A: The artillery base is given as a 60mm round, do the crew go on this base also. Also how do I know how many crew to include? Are these 'multi-part models'? Cheers ” Technicall they're not multi-part…

  • I dislike the idea of giving champions access to magical items. Yes it's been a thing in the past of another game for HBE (DE, too?) but still. -Weapons? You're not giving him any as he's going to die as soon as he sees his first combat anyway, as if this guys carrys a weapon the enemy will make sure to remember to allocate some attacks towards him. -Armour? Makes allocating attacks against him somewhat awkward but again, unlikely that one would ever want's to take it for a champion. -This leave…

  • Quote from arwaker: “What I want to discuss now is the Warcry mechanic. Maybe not too specific at first, but more some basic principles: 1) Do we want to expand the Warcry mechanic, do we want to keep it like it is or do we want to get rid of it (replace it with something very different). 2) What should be the basic mechanic for warcry? 2.1) One use only or conditional multi-use? 2.2) General only or also with other characters or not liked to characters at all? 2.3) Buy it or have it for free?

  • Quote from cptcosmic: “Quote from Shako: “To show how the concept works, I'm going to take an extreme. Like in economics, it's a model not the reality. Sticking with your examples: Army X is bottom tier. 90% are using unit A 10% are using the worse unit B. Now let's say unit B is only 75% as good as unit A. The price for A gets increasedby 5% The price for B gets cut by 50%. Now tell me this wouldn't have an influence on external balance aswell as internal balance. ” yes you have change external…

  • Quote from cptcosmic: “Quote from Arrahed: “You have to look at the update as a whole. Overall HBE received the biggest point reductions (looking at etc lists). So I don't think your point is valid. It is okay to discuss improvements but making false claims does not strengthen the argument. And if you have a better balancing algorithm, I'm sure the team is happy to hear you out. Implying that the people working hard on improving the game are stupid is not cool. ” ok, I will give you an example, …

    Quote from Eldan: “Quote from JimMorr: “I am afraid no-one will allow us to have low Ld high Damage unit priced correctly. Nature of low Ld is randon. Such unit would perform terribly in one game and played exactly the same way in another would become man of the match... ” That is true for every stat. If you roll only ones on your attacks, your unit performs terribly too. The game has a lot of randomness. ” But Discipline is binary. You test for a unit as a whole and you either succeed or fail. …

  • Quote from arwaker: “Combat is not necessarily something Goblins would favour. I don't think it is a good concept to link the unruliness to. ” Fair. Split Orcs and Goblins in half, a full army book for each! With orcs being special in goblins vice versa! On a more serious note: One could also express the unruliness for both of them different though, the above examples could work for orcs, something else might work for goblins. Might lead to rulebloat but: Having 2 actually very different races i…

  • Quote from Gingersmali: “Quote from Shako: “Quote from Little Joe: “If I had to design the rule, then it would be something like an escalation counter, your units start disciplined and eager to fight. Then if you do not fight and win you get punished by unruly forces. Counting that for units individually is too much work. So with very much random numbers, if not at least 3 units shoot or declare charges, you loose a counter. Start with 2, that is your morale boost on some checks. The only other …
