Some Empire card suggestions

Post by Peter » Sun Mar 27, 2016 22:26

I don't yet have an understanding what is a medium stat value like ATK, DEF, Cost.
So I post without values what I think would fit into Empire faction.

I mix Roman and Holy Roman Empire. If that is not good, then let's simply not use the inapropiate cards. Only Centurio is of Roman Empire, so far.

(Here I ignore if the card is not to be used in the start simplified rules.)

All effects mentioned are at card owner's cards of course. (Except last one.)


Footsoldier: Weak but armoured soldier

Centurio: Experienced soldier, can make critical attacks and has high DEF

Knight: Highly armoured, slow

Paladin: Like knight but with divine power

Champion/Hero: Adds to ATK and moral of the co-fighters

Sword of Justice:

Warhorse: Immune to fear/moral effects/spells

Dwarven Mercennary: Hight ATK, armour, endurance, speed

Halberd Bearer: Can effectively fight off horse riders and swords (including two-hand) wielders

Blessed Lance: Extra ATK and/or damage when used by a (horse/wolf/etc.) rider against a rider

Priest of Justiousness: Buffs HP and moral

Emperor's Crown: Co-fighters get each +1 ATK for one turn, rechargable

Emperor's Cepter: Fighters speed increasing

Catapult: High damage, needs X turns to "charge" it

Courtier: Makes weapons cheaper, increases moral?, adds moral and ATK to highest card in play

Silence the Enemies Weakens all enemy cards a tiny bit (probably ATK).
Kind regards and happy coding :)

Here is a part of the framework you're asking for:
http://wtactics.org/wiki/index.php?titl ... ment_(ORC)

Or more easily described: Whatever is high/low/normal in Magic the Gathering would be the same in our game.

For example, a 3/3 starts to count as big creature, a 4/4 or above would definitely count as a big creature, hitting heavy and also defending well.

The values are: ATK/DEF. [EDIT: Should Cost be calculated from ATK/DEF, like it is done in MtG?]

Footsoldier: Weak but armoured soldier
1/2

Centurio: Experienced soldier, can make critical attacks and has high DEF
1/3

Knight: Highly armoured, slow
2/4

Paladin: Like knight but with divine power
2/4

Champion/Hero: Adds to ATK and moral of the co-fighters
3/4

Sword of Justice: Deals special damage (maybe Fire)

Warhorse: Immune to fear/moral effects/spells
Should be only mount or attack, too?

Dwarven Mercennary: Hight ATK, armour, endurance, speed
4/4

Halberd Bearer: Can effectively fight off horse riders and swords (including two-hand) wielders
1/1
But 2/0 (because not able to defend) against riders

Blessed Lance: Extra ATK and/or damage when used by a (horse/wolf/etc.) rider against a rider
+2

Priest of Justiousness: Buffs HP

Emperor's Crown: Co-fighters get each +1 ATK for one turn, rechargable

Emperor's Cepter: Fighters speed increasing

Catapult: High damage, needs X turns to "charge" it

Courtier: Makes weapons cheaper, increases moral?, adds moral and ATK to highest card in play
0/1 He/she's not able to fight.

Silence the Enemies Weakens all enemy cards a tiny bit (probably ATK).
ATK -1 for every opponent acteur.
-----------------------
One particular question is:
Should the Empire have only weenies like Magic-White? Or should it have powerful, but unflexible and clumsy cards?
Kind regards and happy coding :)

Use Magic as a reference:

Gaia: White
House of Nobles: Blueish
Empire: Greenish
Red Banner: Red
Shadowguild: Blackish

These are overall directions, each faction will of course have anomalies that are still in line with the faction identity. So, no, Empire will not be the most weenie faction around, Gaia will.
