    That card looks awesome. I didn't run across any errors. Thanks for the effort on the card and everyone for all the contributions and suggestions to get this guy to where he is.

    Great job on the card!

    I love how you gave him two sinister glowing eyes for a targeting point. Nice touch.


    Fantastic design, Derek!

    Chela Basic Side

    Post  Nomad on Wed Jul 17, 2013 9:42 am

    Thanks for the compliments! We are really pushing the amount of text we can get on a card without needing a magnifying glass.

    I will save the card to a PDF and do a test print later today.

    Here is the basic side.

    Bio wrote:Deep underground is a Lord so fierce, so feared, so noxious even the demons do not like to call upon it.  Only when there is no other way to gain victory do the demons call upon Chela.

    Let me know if you all think this is good enough or have any additional thoughts.  Thanks.

    "Deep underground is a demon so fierce, so feared . . . that he is a Lord, even among all demons. So fierce and noxious even the demons do not embrace its calling forth. Chattering in slow undulation and rising to a rapid agitation in calling upon his name, the demons only dare to bare Chlea's appearance when there is no other hope for victory."

    Kinda fun! Let's keep building.

    Very fun... a little over the top, but I love it.

    Aw-man . . . you didn't like my slow undulation and rapid agitation? Yikes - that sounds like fun!

    Honestly, I didn't even think of anything over the top (or maybe it is that new scruff on my face).

    OK, tone it down. But can't you just hear those demons rising from repose to summon forth the ultimate ecstasy in demonhood - - - the non-other in scary-hood, the most terrifying of all . . . the multi-clawed, poison-clowded, Lord of Demons - CHELA!

    I think the new scruff on your face has revived your vibes. You are too funny.

    I was kind of thinking I've never really heard of or seen anything where Demons chant and such to summon another Demon (maybe we will have a witch or such at some point). But my scruff is a few months behind yours.Very Happy

    A few months? Come on!

    When was the last time you shaved your chin?

    What ever you want for the bio. I'm good . . . just having some fun. Chanting demons sounds like fun!

    change in wording looks good to me.

    I will work on updating the card in the next couple of days.

    I printed the card . . . the text is pretty small! But with the rewording of the power and all of the text . . . we don't really have a choice.

    I don't know why I didn't do a super detailed examination during final editing . . . most of this is just cleaning up the wording and making it more consistent with the real Heroscape cards. Mind you, there is inconsistently within the HS cards, but I went with the more common wording/text that I could find. Anyways, here is my three cents.

    Chela OP wrote:Bio- "Deep underground is a demon so fierce, so feared . . . that he is a Lord, even among all demons. So fierce and noxious even the demons do not embrace calling it forth. Only when there is no other hope for victory, is the Demon Lord Chela summoned."

    Not a big deal, but this sounds better to me: "Only when there is no other hope for victory, the Demon Lord Chela is summoned.


    Chela OP wrote: Exoskeleton 2
      At the start of the game, place 2 copper exoskeleton markers on this card. After Chela rolls Defensive Dice against a normal attack, you may remove 1 exoskeleton marker from this card and ignore all wounds inflicted by that attack.

    EXOSKELETON 2
    At the start of the game, place 2 copper Exoskeleton markers on this Army Card. After Chela rolls defense dice against a normal attack, you may remove 1 Exoskeleton marker from this Army Card to ignore all wounds inflicted by that attack.


    Chela's OP wrote:Miasma Cloud
    All Figures that start their movement within 2 spaces of Chela have their move value reduced by 2. All figures within 2 spaces of Chela reduce their attack and defense values by 1. Demons are not affected by Miasma Cloud.

    MIASMA CLOUD
    All figures that start their turn within 2 spaces of Chela have their Move value reduced by 2. All figures within 2 spaces of Chela reduce their Attack and Defense values by 1. Demons are not affected by Miasma Cloud.


    Chela's OP wrote:Venom Pincers Special Attack
    Range 2 attack 3
    When Chela attacks with Venom Pincers Special attack the defending figure's base may be no more than 3 levels above Chela's height or 3 levels below Chela’s base. After attacking with Venom Pincers Special attack roll 1 attack die for for each wound inflicted in that attack. For each additional skull rolled, place 1 additional wound marker on the defending figure's army card. When Chela attacks with Venom Pincers Special attack, he may attack one additional time. The same figure may not be targeted more than once.

    VENOM PINCERS SPECIAL ATTACK
    Range 2. Attack 3.
    When Chela attacks with Venom Pincers Special Attack the defending figure's base may be no more than 3 levels above Chela's height or 3 levels below Chela’s base. After attacking with Venom Pincers Special Attack roll 1 attack die for for each wound inflicted in that attack. For each additional skull rolled, place 1 additional Wound Marker on the defending figure's Army Card. When Chela attacks with Venom Pincers Special Attack, he may attack one additional time. He cannot attack the same figure more than once.

    The last sentence makes it the same as Nilf's card. I struck out a few things to make the text shorter so that it will fit on a card, but I think it still reads as intended. Do we want to go with 'it' instead of 'he'?

    I think we should stay consistent and make it 'it'. I'll change the OP.

    Before I vote, can you change the text to this?

    VENOM PINCERS SPECIAL ATTACK
    Range 2. Attack 3.
    When Chela attacks with Venom Pincers Special Attack the defending figure's base may be no more than 3 levels above Chela's height or 3 levels below Chela’s base. After attacking with Venom Pincers Special Attack roll 1 attack die for for each wound inflicted. For each skull rolled, place 1 Wound Marker on the defending figure's Army Card. When Chela attacks with Venom Pincers Special Attack, he may attack one additional time. He cannot attack the same figure more than once.

    When we copy text with a strikethrough, it pastes with out the strikethrough, so we need to go in and delete it out.

    Looks like we missed some wording here. I would like to reopen this guy so we can get the wording so he can attack all engaged figures and such that might even be 2 spaces away.
