    There are very rare instances when Chela (or a Hydra) couldn't attack a figure because the target's base was too low. But I can see the 'Scapers point that the Range 2 Reach might cause confusion.


    For simplicity, how about dropping the Range 2 "Reach" powers.

    VENOM PINCERS SPECIAL ATTACK
    Range: 1 Attack: 3
    After attacking with Venom Pincers Special Attack roll 1 attack die 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.

    I think his range of 2 is pretty important, especially because of his placement issues. Simply making the height of the defending character 3 levels below Chela's base would work. The question then becomes is there too much text on the card so that something else may have to give.

    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 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.
    to

    When Chela attacks a non-adjacent figure with Venom Pincers Special Attack the defending figure's height may be no more than 3 levels below Chela's base or the defending figure's base may be no more than 3 levels above Chela's height. If Chela inflicts a wound with Venom Pincers Special Attack roll 1 attack die. If a skull is 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.

    If Chela didn't have placement issues I would be OK with a range of 1 (if you guys both think it should be a range of 1 we can go that way). I like the Venom part of the attack and would like to keep it. Double attack is important. Not being able to attack the same figure twice is the least important to me, but is part of what makes him vulnerable, and then I don't see the need to keep the Venom part as much. I also think terrifying should also be is personality and am surprised I didn't go that way originally.

    This will only increase the power length a couple of lines on the card . . . we will have to see if it fits. Nice rewrite, Derek.

    I think range of 2 is a must. I also like keeping not being able to attack the same figure twice which restricts the power over a single hero slightly.

    Despite Scytale's reservations about this power - I think it is pretty cool. The least important part to me is the additional wound marker possibility if we had to cut something out.

    We can easily change him to Terrifying - it certainly lines up with his bio. Eratas are done often.

    Are we good here? Do you want me to tweak his card and repost it?

    I am good with the rewrite without "nonadjacent", which changes the height restrictions on figures to heights of the defending figure below Chela and base above Chela. If it is too wordy we can stick with original wording and add "non-adjacent". Terrifying chance is also appropriate. Thanks.

    I'm so sorry that I've been so busy the last few weeks.

    Chela's new power wording fits, barely. Let me know if this works just right and then I'll change the card on Heroscapers.

    Looks awesome. The only other thing I thought we were changing was from Ferocious to Terrifying. Sorry if I didn't update the OP on these.

    Looks awesome Damon. The only thing I see is that in the Venom pincers attack should the first line have any coma's? I am happy as is.

    I can't see any place commas are needed. If you want to rewrite with commas inserted as necessary, that is fine.

    Hi!

    Can we name this thread "W1 - Chela Released"? Just makes the searching for a figure easier. Thanks.

    New and improved card . . .
