    Yes - Uncommons are Uniques in every way. Strength of Ullar power edited as follows:

    When attacking an adjacent figure, each Warden of the Wood receives 1 additional attack die for every other Unique Army Card you control that follows Ullar up to a maximum of +3 dice.

    Here is the updated card:

    Another excellent and informative bio. What is a hierophant? I learned what "demesne" means.

    A couple of suggestions in red.

    Character Bio:
    The Wardens of the Wood are an elected group of elven druids from Feylund. The druids are chosen by the elders of the druidic order and are ordained by great hierophant of the Waylan Woods. Each Warden is assigned an area of elvish land to foster and protect, tending to the health of all life (both plant and animal). As a symbol of their authority, each Warden carries a sacred staff blessed by the hierophant. Each staff is unique to its bearer and allows the druid to channel bolts of force at short distances. The energy of the bolts can be controlled to simply be a push or to impact with the power to break bones.

    In addition to their enchanted staves, the Wardens are instructed in many rituals. One of these incantations is the Ritual of Oakenshield. Cast each day at sunset, the spell provides magical protection from harm for the Warden and his allies within a 5 foot radius.

    There are currently three Wardens of the Wood in Valhalla. First among the group is Hrothan, Warden of Aubria. Hrothan wears the mask of the Heartsinger Stag and he is the guardian of the great animals of the forest. Next is Kristia, Warden of Ashra, who bears the Talon of the Eagles. Kristia is guardian of all creatures of the sky. Finally there is the stoic Kaolo, Warden of Llmovar, the guardian of the mountain. Kaolo carries the Staff of Shepherds which allows him to communicate with the gentle animals of the woodlands.

    When the Elves of Feylund arrived in Valhalla, they became great allies to Ullar. Initially the Wardens of the Wood helped their brothers and sisters to understand the different flora, fauna, and animals of the forests of Valhalla. But now as the battles have grown closer to the new demesne of the collective elves of Valhalla, the Wardens have been brought to the front lines to keep Utgar and his minions at bay.

    To aid the fight, Ullar and the Druids have developed a new ritual. Cast the night before a battle, and focused through an oath to serve Ullar, the Wardens can call upon the strength of the great heroes and heroines that will fight the following day. With this ritual, the Wardens can perform great feats of strength and skill in combat, making them formidable combatants.

    Thanks for the edits on the Bio.  Updating OP.  I believe "on" Valhalla is correct if Valhalla is a planet.

    Is Valhalla a planet? Or is it a mystical realm of Norse after-life?

    Either way works for me, but Galdy's bio should be changed to "on" to be consistent in his first sentence.


    I looked through 10 classic bios, only one referenced Valhalla . . . and it was "on Valhalla."

    Galdy's bio should be changed. Sorry for being such a nit-picker.
