Re: Puny Trait

I am thinking of using it mostly for weak wizards, children, and some fey creatures like sprites. It can also represent a creature that is a good fighter but does not have a lot of musclepower.
Ranged attacks have no advantage against Puny.

Re: Area Spells

I have amended the text Area Spells with the Area tag can potentially affect every target in a circular area. Place a marker on the table where you want the spell to go off. Place a measuring stick of the appropriate length on that spot to determine who is caught in the blast. The stick is the DIAME...

Re: spells that you tested

Yes the summoned warrior can be a Personality model. The points are in addition (but remember that you paid points for the spellcaster, and that in most cases the spellcaster will be weaker than the summoned warrior) Read the Summon tag on p.30: If the summoned creature is hit by the Unsummon spell,...

Re: A couple of thoughts on the lizardman roster

Yes I think I can squeeze them in. Remember that each race will have their own army book -- I have given a lot of space to Lizardmen here only because they are, basically, the main antagonist of the humanoid races on Norindaal, and their own book is not going to be published anytime soon. Good call ...

Re: Javelin clarification

yes, all shooters are assumed to have at least one large knife or club for melee combat, and to automatically draw the weapon when they are contacted in melee or when they contact enemies in melee.

Re: weapon interaction

Long reach: that is being discussed, but I am leaning on the idea that Long reach does negate cavalry and higher ground modiofiers, it certainly does from an historical perspective. Maybe there was a previous version of the rule that I wrote for the (still in development) spear and shield rules. Une...

Re: Lucky and Hero

yes this makes sense, good catch. I have tried to break up all "multiple function" traits in ASOBH.

Re: Will of the Gods and Battle Hunger

They are indeed similar and meant to be two variations on the same idea. They are not in the builder because they were a last minute addition. A playtester suggested them and I think they could be useful for low Q warbands -- there are not many other mechanics that affect the activation rolls. Some ...

Re: Typos and other blunders in ASOBH pdf

yes that's in HaF too. It seems I have to shift some content between the two books.
