    W5 - Brainstorming - Giant Spider

    Post  Lord Kai on Mon May 02, 2016 2:00 pm

    New giant spider!!!  Looks great and is reasonably affordable.  I picked up 2.

    Figure:  D&D Icons of the Realm Monster Menagerie 28/45 Phase Spider


    Could be a new Arachnid Predator to bond with Spider squad : )




    Also had the idea for an Arachnomancer bonding:

    SERVANT OF ARACHNOMANCERS
    After revealing an order marker on 'Giant Spider,' before taking a turn with 'Giant Spider,' you may take a turn with an Arachnomancer you control.

    Gives bonding to Estivara, Pelloth, and Bellochar.

    PHASE SPIDER (placeholder)

    Figure: D&D, Icons of the Realm Monster Menagerie, Phase Spider 28/45

    General: UTGAR
    Planet: Eberron

    Species: Arachnid
    Unique Hero
    Class: Predator
    Personality: Relentless
    Medium 4

    Life: 4
    Move: 8
    Range: 1
    Attack: 4
    Defense: 3
    80 Points

    PARALYZING STING SPECIAL ATTACK
    Range: 1  Attack: 3
    If Phase Spider inflicts at least 1 wound on a unique hero with Paralyzing Sting Special Attack, roll the 20-sided die. Subtract 3 to your roll if the defending figure is huge. If you roll a 13 or higher remove one order marker at random from the defending figure's army card.

    WEB LINE
    Instead of his normal move, Phase Spider may use Web Line. Web Escape has a move of 4. When counting spaces for Web Line ignore elevations. Phase Spider may Web Line over figures without becoming engaged and Web Line over obstacles such as ruins. Phase Spider may not Web Line more than 8 levels up or down in a single move. If Phase Spider is engaged when he starts his Web Line, he will not take any leaving engagement attacks.

    Cool start. I like both powers, but what about Servant of the Arachnomancers?

    Yeah, I wasn't sure about the Arachnomancer bonding ... so I went with a more 'stand-alone' Hero that bonds with the Spiders.

    I could add a third power for sure though : )


    If he bonds with Estivara, he'd be pretty mean .. since he's an Arachnid and she'd give him +1 attack.

    What do you think?

    The spider can only bond with an Arachnomancer when an OM is revealed on it and would act as a bit of protection for the Drow Heroes. I like adding a third power . . .

    We can work on the wording, name, etc., in conversation later, but I'm good to start play testing the Spider.
