Dew Mountaineer coming along to give a mega damage boost. For now a Jolly Bee.

    Yep. Ain't that a beauty, you can focus on choosing other upgrades.

    (I should mention that some of these units were modeled after Disciples units, because I'm lazy; in particular, Melee/Magic here is based on the Templar unit, which had all elemental Wards. It is, actually, regarded as kinda imba. Let's see how that plays out, since there's a flip side to Wards in my version of the rules- some beneficial spells won't work on a Warded unit)

    So we've got an Archon, two Melees and one Support. That's already a fairly interesting stack, but there's room for two more Melees and two more back row units.

    I'll go the Archer route (THAC0 Bell), mostly because I like the campaign symmetry.

    Reading through the rules as part of my catch-up from holiday. I see theres stack room for four more units but have we reached a sign-up limit ? *

    * (Re-reading through the sign-up to check - math was never my forte :P )

    Players and selected unit types, so far:

    Swodaems: Melee (/Might/Skill): Patty flipper

    0beron: Archon (/Magic/Force): All-a-paino

    kriss1989: Support (/Might/Force): Jolly Bee

    ETheBoyce: Melee (/Magic/?) ?: Patty flipper

    MarbitChow: Archer (/?/?): THAC0 Bell

    WaterMonkey314: ?/?/?: ?

    The Colonel: ?/?/?: ?

    Werebiscuit: ?/?/?: ?

    I'd like everyone to select their development path, at least for the first incarnation of their unit. So where there's a question mark, usually it's because some type, or branch, should be selected. ETheBoyce was considering a melee unit, but since that was uncertain I left an extra question mark.

    There's no requirement for the 8 of you to form a sensible stack (which is, a stack with 4 melee units and 4 back row units that are NOT melee). It would be easier for you to work together though if you followed that structure. Alternatively, you can split into two stacks, each protected by one melee unit and otherwise filled with Archon/Archer/Support. It will put a lot of pressure on the Melee unit, but in principle workable.

    Alternatively alternatively, you may have more than 4 melee units, split them between two or more stacks, and skimp on Archer/Archon/Support for now.

    So basically, anything may go. I'm not imposing a structure, just recommending one (4 Melee + 4 not Melee).

    So in other words, it'd be rather ideal if we got one more Archer, and 4 total Melee :)

    Since BLAND didn't give us any mount stats, I would assume they're not available yet, or aren't suitable for Player Characters.

    I'll go with the Archer / Might / Force build. And granted, it will be a LONG time before Level 6, but does Vampirism apply to the secondary attack, or just the primary?

    I believe I'll become a mount at 2nd level.

    ....I just checked that, and you're right....I'm confused though as to the point of an ARCHER becoming a mount...I thought mounts technically counted as the front row, and the unit they carry is in the back row....so doesn't being in the front row ruin the point of being an Archer...? BLAND I'm confused!

    I'll be Melee, though frankly I'm somewhat confused about how things work - do we choose a type (e.g. THAC0 Bell) each level?

    Just the primary. Secondary effects, if any, will do their thing without pumping life back to you.

    There was nothing in principle to stop a mount from being a "ranged" type (whether Archer or Archon). Your side pulled the short straw so to speak, and you only have ranged mounts.

    When you pop, you choose a type of unit to be. And that's what you are at level 1. On reaching level 2, your unit will upgrade into one of two paths, and same thing will happen on level 3.

    I could allow you to decide at level 2 whether you want to pursue the path of Might or the one of Magic, but for reasons to do with how Disciples works, and to make it easier to use the XP-recuperation from corpses, I've decided to require that you specify in advance how you want your unit to upgrade if/when it reaches levels 2 and 3.

    Marbit, Unless I misunderstand the rules (which is a distinct possibility) Archer/Might/Force results in a Medium rare Grillphon... which has 9dmg ... not vampirism. The vampirism is from the Wendygo which is Melee/Might/Force.

    Indeed the only unit that naturally has Vamp is the Wendygo, just as the only unit with natural Leadership is the Burgermeister (well, among the units you can pop, anyway).

    However, starting from level 2 until level 6, you get 5 chances to tack on some extra abilities to your units. Like, for example, Vampirism, which is available to Level 6 force units.

    Ah... I did misunderstand then. So how does that affect your development path ? have i limited myself to much by specifying Archer/Might/Skill ?
