    Figure - "Drider Fanglord" from DD, Savage Encounters

    General: Utgar
    Planet: Toril

    Species: Drider
    Unique Hero
    Class: Messenger
    Personality: Menacing
    Large 5

    Life: 4
    Move: 7
    Range: 1
    Attack: 3
    Defense: 3
    90 Points

    TEST OF LOLTH
    Yazlochar's Species is considered to be Drow and Arachnid in addition to Drider.

    LOLTH'S MESSENGER
    After revealing an Order Marker on Yazlochar's Army Card and taking a turn with Yazlochar, if Yazlochar is unengaged, you may take a turn with a Drow Hero or Squad you control.

    IMMOBILIZING WEB
    When an opponent's small or medium Common figure moves onto a space within 2 clear sight spaces of Yazlochar, that figure must end its move there and must subtract 1 from its Attack value.


    Character Bio: BACKGROUND INFORMATION
    Yazlochar means web messenger in the Drow language. Scytale and Dok each created a custom for this figure, and I borrowed heavily from their powers.

    There is a new "drider" just released:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/D-D-Icons-of-the-Realm-Rage-of-Demons-26-55-Drider-/331651751000?hash=item4d37fc1c58:g:2SgAAOSwuTxV8jJO


    More availability, so lower price for this mini.

    What do you think about swapping the Bonding so he takes a turn after the Squad or Hero - and drop the 'unengaged' part?

    I already have the original Drider, so let's stick with it. It was a gift from you, by the way. Perhaps the new released Drider can come in down the line.

    The order of who takes a turn when kind of limits the points - if you aren't successful with the attack, then you can't take a turn with a squad/hero. So, do you risk an attack and just move him into a spot where he can protect with the web and then let his buddies do the work.

    Let me theory-scape some more . . .

    OP updated with first attempt at card. I think I would like to keep the order of the bonding as is and the unengaged part intact for now to limit points and make Yazlochar more strategic to play.

    Cool, we can play-test the Bonding as is.

    Army Ideas:
    #1
    Yazlochar ... 90
    Deepwyrm Drow x3 ... 300
    Estivara ... 380
    Bellochar ... 450
    Chain Fighter x2 .. 500

    * Since Yazlochar can bond with a Hero that would include the Chain Fighters.  Otherwise, I would totally drop the Marro Warriors in here for 50-points of range.


    #2
    Yazlochar ... 90
    Deepwyrm Drow x4 ... 370
    Bellochar ... 440
    Elaria the Pale ... 500

    * Elaria adds +1 to Hide in Darkness for the Drow. With Bellochar that could be a +7 (+1 Elaria, +6 Shadow).  This army lacks range and is very vulnerable to special attacks.
