FACTION PURE SPECIAL ABILITIES

Post by Guest on Fri May 24, 2013 12:43 am

For the information of everyone, you can find below the rules for faction pure special abilities we cooked up and we can add them to our group house rules.

This was part of the poll Rino did last time regarding additional house rules for the title matches. And since no one had any idea what this was, it was no surprise that no one voted for it. Razz

These faction abilities were meant to add more fun and depth to our games and makes for a nice incentive for players to build pure faction armies.

GUIDELINES FOR DETERMINING FACTION PURITY:
1. Except for Draconum, Solonavi, Shyft and Apocalypse factions, 1.0 and 2.0 have different versions of the same faction (e.g. Atlantis Guild/Atlantean Empire, Knights Immortal/Elven Lords, Orc Raiders/Orc Khans, etc.). However, as a general house rule, 1.0 and its counterpart 2.0 faction shall be considered as one faction for determining faction purity.
2. Mounts in cavalry units must belong to the same faction as that of the rider’s to be considered as faction pure (e.g. EF Skydragons can only be considered faction pure with EF armies). - TO BE FINALIZED
3. Mage Spawn figures belonging to the Order of the Ninth Circle can be considered faction pure with any single faction.
4. Ordinary Mage Spawn figures can only be considered pure faction in Shyft armies.
5. Dual faction figures can be considered pure faction with any single faction they are aligned with.

FACTION ABILITIES
These extra abilities are only accessible by armies of the corresponding faction with 100% faction purity based on the guidelines stated above.

After the movement, this warrior takes 1 click of pushing damage before resolving the ranged combat attack. This warrior’s range value is halved (rounded up) and gets -1 to its ranged damage value when using the Leap Frog Maneuver. Warriors using Leap Frog Maneuver cannot use special abilities that require a warrior to be given a ranged combat action.
