    Can we change the name of the thread to "Shadow Slayers of Kresnik - Final Editing"?

    Now that we have dozens of threads, this would be easier to find . . .

    OP updated with Bio. Let me know what you all think, if Konrad Von Bramgur will work for the name of their hero, taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konrad_von_Marburg.

    Here is a copy for easy reference.
    Bio:
    Deep in the basement in the back corner of the Royal Library, a group of young Kresnik watch as the strange elder, Konrad von Bramgur, tilts the book "Morindan Contaminated" to a 45% degree angle and pushes down. The shelf twists 25 degrees exposing a narrow passage of stairs leading even further down. Konrad urges the hand selected recruits to follow him down.
    When they reach the bottom of the stairs a large room is occupied by a group that Konrad calls the Shadow Slayers, "a group of the best hunters from Kresnik". "But to become a Shadow Slayer it takes more than being a good hunter" Konrad explains, "it takes a belief that the evil monsters they encounter in the forests of Morindan can only be cured in the afterlife, thus the evil must be destroyed in this life, and this is why I have chosen you."
    Konrad shows them books that only the Shadow Slayers know exist. Books that delve into the darkness of the enemies they face. "The Shadow Slayers must know every aspect of the darkness they face to truly defeat them. But beware", Konrad warns, "for every verse read the reader is changed, becoming more and more like our adversaries, and if your heart is not pure, there is chance of becoming pure demon yourself."

    Wow, the historical Konrad was pretty rough!

    Konrad, after receiving a commission from the Archbishop of Mainz,[2] also set to work seeking out heresy in both Thuringia and Hesse, and quickly gained a reputation for being unreasonable and unjust. According to most accounts, Konrad accepted almost any accusation as true, and regarded suspects as guilty until proven innocent. Those accused of being heretics were quickly sought out by Konrad's mobs, and told to repent or else be burnt at the stake.


    You're Bio for the Heroscape Konrad is very nice, btw.  It adds a ton of flavor and background to the Shadow Slayers!

    OP wrote:DUAL WEAPONS
    If a Shadow Slayer of Kresnik attacks an adjacent figure with his first attack, add 1 attack die. If a Shadow Slayer of Kresnik's first attack was against an adjacent figure, he may attack 1 additional time.

    FEARLESS OF EVIL
    A Demon or Undead figure never receives height, terrain, or special power dice bonuses when attacking or defending against a Shadow Slayer of Kresnik.

    MASTERY OF THE DARK ARTS
    A Shadow Slayer of Kresnik may never have his defense, attack, or move reduced by an opponent's Demon or Undead Army Card. When a Demon or Undead rolls the 20-sided die for a special power against a Shadow Slayer of Kresnik you control, you may subtract 2 from the die roll.
    Dual Weapons wording needs to be addressed. I think it could be interpreted to mean that the 2nd attack would get +1 as well, and the 2nd part could be cleaned up. How about

    DUAL WEAPONS
    If a Shadow Slayer of Kresnik attacks an adjacent figure, add 1 attack die to his first attack. If a Shadow Slayer of Kresnik attacks an adjacent figure with his first attack, he may attack 1 additional time.

    Fearless of Evil is alright but I wouldn't mind some other options.

    Evil Studies
    Fearless
    Hunters of Evil
    Demonic Hunters
    Demonic Studies
    Demonic Understanding
    Evil Ambush
    Demonic Ambush

    Nice work on the bio!

    Konrad Von Bramgur is a good name . . . I'll play around with it a bit.

    Regarding the power names, in my honest opinion, I prefer the initial offering of

    Study of the Dark Arts

    and

    Mastery of the Dark Arts

    Yes, they are very similar, but so are the powers. Mastery is achieved after thorough and complete study. I vote that we go back to those names. I thought they were very thematic. I actually preferred that they were similar sounding. Just my 12 cents (which is a dime more than 2 cents).

    I think I agree here, OP changed. The hero guy will only have Konrad on his card I'm thinking- but would love to see what you come up with.

    The Study/Mastery of the Dark Arts 'power name' is sort of close for my tastes but it will certainly work for the Heroscaper community.

    But Yeah they look good. Approved!

    Feedback appreciated. I think I need to rework the fogging on the basic side.

    The lead Hunter's right foot is a little transparent ... but might not be noticeable regular size/printed.

    Yes, the fogging didn't turn out right on the back side. I will redo it when I get a chance.

    Nice avatar. Is that Loki?

    I improved the image quality on the card (lightened the background and increased contrast on the figures). I have reloaded the PDF download on Heroscapers.

    I will be reprinting my card.

    Akumaken: Mask of Terror
    Being a squad figure with the Fearless personality, the Shadow Slayers of Kresnik are not affected by Akumakens Mask of Terror.

    Books updated here with the above under synergy imposed. Needs to be updated on Heroscapers. I did not notice any other effects Akumaken had on our books.
