    ok, now that the dark priest is dead. we need to look at this again... We got a slog ahead of us on the west side.

    Donia is out of assisting us this turn. She need to gather troops and support cards for herself and be ready to attack next turn when Dorgas moves next to the town. She can't wait for him to attack.

    ***
    Ravinith is dug in like a tick. She's got water on her left side, and a horde of 'undead troops' in the field. If we move to fight her, we need to get across the field and kill her in one round, or we fight troops all over again when she rezzes them next turn.
    Beside her is Exahr who has the biggest army to date. I think we need to figure a way for Zyne and his dragon to get there and support Gato. Am I reading this right? Exahr has 9combat power?

    I... have to sit out this turn as well, until Zyne and the Princess get around me, unless we want to keep pushing her west?

    I'm kinda at a loss here on what to do, not to mention Marianne of the twins will gather up troops in a deathball on her march to us the moment we step foot in either Ravinith or Exahr's areas...
    Do we just funnel troops into Zyne and the Princess and just juggernaut our way through this?

    We need to keep going west because we have to kill the Chancelor so probably easier if we’re focused on that side of the map.
    Probably head towards Exhar.

    Then maybe hole up in a castle as Marianne heads towards someone.

    I can get out of mountains this turn but we should probably figure out how to slow Princess a bit to give us time to get ahead of her.

    Exahr has 3 combat rating. 6 soldiers, and a 2 defense value on his space and would have been a much better starting neighbor for Magnus.

    Ok, if we do not help princess this turn, she moves to road (2 resources left), collects resource (3 res), moves to temple (0 left), collects (3 resources). It looks fine for me, so we should concentrate on getting res/soldiers and Gato should start cleaning path between lakes. Next turn we are pouring a bunch of resources on her, so she will be able to finish Exahr and get to his castle

  • NotoriusBENNotoriusBEN Registered User regular
    Another point for next turn event. We let her get sick so we dont spend 2+ actions on resources and sending them, but i spend 1 action to negate the HP loss.

    Enemies with red backgrounds are aggressive, and will begin moving towards the nearest kingdom hero 1 space per turn as soon as one enters within a 1 area range.
    Blue background: defensive, will never move.
    White: Will move only to attack adjacent kingdom hero.

    Remember you must pause and draw a fate card the first time a character moves into the same area or adjacent space as an empire general (exceptions: Black Knight, King of the Abyss, Emperor).

    Zyne: (Black Drake) May spend 3 supply to add 4 dice once per battle.

    Resources
    Godfried: 2 (NotoriusBEN)
    Gato: x (Elvenshae)
    Josephine: 10 (Phyphor)
    Donia: 13 (Daemonis)
    Annelie: 0 (cj iwakura)
    Zyne: 21 (AustinP0027)
    Princess Cornelia: 4

    Turn 3
    Event (Stage I)
    Impatience: At the start of the princess step, the princess moves 1 space without cost.


    (next event via Donia scouting)
    Sudden Illness: Unless the princess was sent 10 resources this round, the princess step is skipped and the princess suffers 2 health damage.

    Since I have two moves in the mountains no matter which way I go, should I head towards Ravinith instead and start clearing out those soldiers? That'd leave Gato to work on/towards Exahr, but maybe it's better to have a plan in motion where we try to hit both Twins in the same round from separate ends.

  • ElvenshaeElvenshae Registered User regular
    The person in the Stronghold is the Ice Lord, right?

    If so, I think I can handle that tile next turn.

    You only have 5 dice you get (plus whatever support cards you might have).

    Ice Lord has 6 soldiers, +2 for defensive spot, and a combat rating of 3, so to totally wipe him out, you'd need 11 hits.

    I think Ravinith not our problem, we pass through lake areas.

    Ok... turn 3 the princess is 10 spaces from the capital. We still have some breathing room.

    Marianne is going to be trouble. She is gonna deathball when we move into the fields or start siegeing Exahr. We push Rav, she gets 7troops total and possibly more if we bog in the undead field. We push Exahr, she gets 8 then 12 troops total if we dont kill Exhar and take the town on turn 4.

    Proposal for this turn is we move to the mountain and forest edges, and then sprint on turn 4 to drive a kill on Rav first so that we can choose/force Marianne's AI action to the east.

    We'll have to weather some troop attacks from the field, but Zyne can take it more or less unless he rolls six 1's. Even then, we can have him take HP damage over troop damage and Ill heal him.

    Thoughts?

    Really wish I could delay my turn order to the back of the pack...

    Not to mention you operate at 3 dice for town defense and then 2 dice because Exahr is a prick and takes away a die

    Yeah, fighting him in that city square is going to be a really tough proposition.

    Just let the princess smash into him she takes 4 damage if she has full troops, then Ben heals her up

    We should be ready to provide her with soldiers right after that as enemy soldiers and Marianna will come after her. May be Gato should go around the lake? We wil have to destroy cancelor anyway.

    Does the enemy act before or after the princess?

    Its all for not naught if she smashes Exahr and then gets overrun by both sets of 4 behind him or Marianne if she moves and get 8troops

    Not this turn, but next turn, I'll should be able to get Marianne to attack me in a well-defended location.

    Won't be able to do much about her brother just yet, though.

    Oh hey thats right! Princess is a warrior, these 2troops cant hurt her. Sure all enemies attack at the same time, but it isnt 4troops total vs her. She'll shrug it all off in 2v1 then 2v1 etc.

    Lets push her to ravinith

    Actually, all movement happens before combat, and common troops stack up before attacking.

    So if she's moving into them offensively, then it's 2, 2, 2, but if they move onto her, it's a single 6-damage attack.

    As she is resurrected near him, can we put her in the northest mountain and forget about her?

    She's aggressive, though, and will slowly march towards anyone who gets within 1 whole tile of her.

    Yeah, but the north mountain is on Vampire tile, and noone will be within 1 tile from her ever.

  • AustinP0027AustinP0027 Registered User regular
    Do we get to pick which spot she respawns on?

    If not, there are multiple other adjacent tiles that will put her on the Dark Citadel tile which is closer.

    Damage is number of soldiers plus the character's combat rating. 6 soldiers + 3 Ice Lord combat rating. Princess would take 7 damage.
