  • Quote from GorillaConda: “Also side note back to the Cuatl. What if the other species are subservient because the Cuatls make them dependent on a drug and that’s how the other species are loyal to the Cuatls, but don’t trust or even like them, but have no choice. ” Kind of like the Dominion in Star Trek?

  • Also, the guidelines are guidelines, not the design itself. They suggest the path for the designers to take, and the designers build along that path. Look at the guideline for the magic ability of each species. That guideline says that each species can cast magic, but doesn't require them to. If the LAB team has a good idea for adding magic to a gila character, the guidelines allow it (but doesn't require it). Some of the guidelines, like the samurai nature of caiman or the lack of a larynx, are…

  • Quote from Perch: “It was said at the beginning that cuatls value order above all, so I am a little bit sceptical about the concept of any betrayal to achieve alternative goals in mind or being unstable assets. ” I did say it was a guess. I could be entirely wrong. Let me try putting it another way, since unstable can have connotations and meanings that are unintended. In my guess (this still only a guess), cuatls are unpredictable assets. They are not enemies of the SA, but they are not blindly…

  • Quote from Perch: “I wish we could get more lore snippets about cuatls role in society. I am quite confused to be honest. How they can be mistrusted, but obeyed in battle? What does mean they should be watched by disciplined troops, are less disciplined troops going to turn against them? Why they need jailors, are they prisoners? ” Speaking entirely from a non-staff, non-LAB coordinator standpoint (because I do NOT have an official understanding of this at this point in time), my guess would be …

  • Quote from JeroBeam: “What does "ground-locked monsters" mean? Does this exclude the possibility of a Quetzalcoatl? That would be very sad in my opinion. ” The full guideline is "The army should have access to a number of ground-locked monsters which supplement their infantry and provide shock troops." This is not a limiting statement. It does not say "the army should only have access to a number of ground-locked monsters..." Instead, it says that there should be a many ground-locked monsters, m…

  • Warrior Poets? They don't pose a threat to us. Slash, roar! I was wrong.

  • Quote from wombat: “Whilst ( as stated previously ) there are numerous Warrior/ Poets in History surely the Whole Purpose of this thread is to inform players and obtain feedback ? Feedback by definition can be Positive / Neutral / Negative. Not having a go but the " official " replies all seem somwhat dismissive. Some Players ( including myself ) have expressed their concerns which I consider only right and proper. ” Yes, feedback is good. I am merely commenting on the fact that some people are …

  • Quote from GorillaConda: “I don’t know where this deep thinking caiman, crocodile, alligator philosopher angle is coming from. SA warriors should be brutal, cold blooded, predator, not some pansy deep thinking poet who writes poems about trees. ” Sun Tzu is probably the best known warrior poet of all time. Would you consider him to be a pansy?

  • Quote from wombat: “There is no doubt in my mind that Warrior and Poet are a well known combination ( the number of WW1 poets being an example ) it's the addition of " Alligator " to the mix that doesn't fit imho. ” Honestly, I think it is the perfect mix. Alligators are well known as ambush predators. They are calm, collected, patient...and then they strike with deadly fury. A humanoid alligator would have the same traits. A calm demeanor, a knowledge that they don't need to go out to seek bloo…

  • @Darkwise If you are curious, here is the TV Tropes page for Warrior Poet. It will give you a lot of pop culture examples of what a warrior poet is and why it might be a good fit for Caiman.

  • Quote from filosoraptor: “Quote from marcema: “Quote from filosoraptor: “Quote from Lawot: “Quote from filosoraptor: “Sorry but I don't see a Naga concept in a Lizardmen army, not at least the lizardmen we have known for all these years. ” I think the point of the LAB is specifically that these will not be the Lizardmen we have known for all these years. ” If lizardmen are not meant to be a dino based army, I should stop playing this game once and for all ” Its even in the guidelines if you have…

  • Quote from beerbeard: “nd finally some way to get magic into a list without it costing so much. I don’t know how to solve the shaman issue, but it needs addressing imho. ” Two headed big name - makes the character a wizard apprentice in addition to whatever else it has going on. If you put it on a wizard master, you have a wizard master and apprentice on the same character.

    DnD goblins *can* be super weak, or they can be run as devilish ambushers. Look at Tucker's Kobolds for inspiration on how to make goblinoids a threat. Warcraft goblins are intelligent and sneaky with a penchant for blowing things up. I think they are a playable race, too, so they are just as strong as orcs, trolls, and tauren. Order of the Stick hobgoblins are an existential threat to the world, and took out one of the strongholds of human power halfway through the story. I have no problem with…

    Y'all need to read more Order of the Stick, then. These are definitely hobgoblins to me. Hobgoblins: All efficiency, and warrior's codes, and sense of duty...

    I really REALLY like this book. I like the units, the core setup, the lore snippets, etc. I have one question and two complaints. Question: when a character takes a tusker mount, does it supplant a rider, or is it in addition to the 3 riders? Complaint 1: I don't have nearly enough goblin models for this army, and am too far behind on my current armies to buy more goblins. Complaint 2: The other slim books don't have those lore snippets. I wish they did. The HG book is making my OK slim book loo…

    I think the important thing to remember is that every unit is chaff if it tries hard enough!

    Quote from Traumdieb: “I doubt SA or VS will have units that arent pure chaff. ” For clarity, when you say "pure chaff", do you mean a unit whose sole purpose is to get in the way of something and then subsequently die, with no other use on the field?

    Works for me. First things first: the question being asked is bad for the purposes of data gathering. Since the first question is “I like and/or can accept “flexibility” as the selling point of immortals”, you are inherently going to get predominantly “yes” answers, and it is not going to give any useful information. That yes can either mean “I really like the idea of flexibility as the selling point of immortals” or “it is ok at best, and I will take it if nothing better is offered.” A yes to t…

    My reading of @DanTs request is “no reasoning, just yes/no”. If he’s ok with it for his data gathering purposes, I’ll be happy to expound.
