8/9/2013 - Paint the town Red
New Investigator - Vladimir, the Crimson Reaper
-Vladimir can be found in the League of Legends tab under Investigators.
New Content Bundle - Chaos Legion
-This mini bundle comes with 2 investigators and 1 Ancient One from the Chaos Legion title.
THE FULL IMAGE GALLERY IS UP!
-By use of the Imgur Gallery features, this full image gallery was crafted with traces of legendary dragon scales and smelted together with the embers of a dying star.
-Each item on display has a name, description and a high resolution image. Not on display are Personal Stories or Sinister Plots.
-There are goodies in there. Namely, a few images for future content.
-The Full Image Gallery can be found in the second post of the thread, right under the Topic post. Alternatively, there's a link here.
-Lore reduced to 4 from 5. Sneak increased to 5 from 4.
-More wording cleanup on the Tibbers Monster Token.
*Chimbley was a long time joke character, made in the earliest days of my custom creation phase. While I like Chimbley from a flavorful standpoint, his selection of items and abilities was not very well thought out, and has been long overdo for an update. The reason why it took so long to refine Chimbley is because he was incredibly fun and kinda silly, and people enjoyed playing him despite how overpowered his design was. I think I finally found a sweet spot where Chimbley can be strong without being overbearing, can still remain flavorful and no longer reeks of bad design.
-Convenient Law Enforcement completely reworked. Now allows you to make a Luck (-1) check once per turn instead of making a combat or evade check. If you pass, the monster is arrested. Only 1 monster can be in jail at a time, putting another in there causes the first monster to be released into Easttown Streets. The monster will also be released during "Blue Flu".
-Panic and Stealth have both been removed from Fixed Possesions. Now starts with an extra random spell.
-Dusty Broom now costs $5 instead of $4.
-Dusty Broom now requires 5 soot counters to refresh from 6.
-Chimbley's Personal Story completely redone to reflect the recent rework.
-Trial of the Dragon's activation is now restricted to "cannot be used unless in Arkham" as opposed to "cannot be used in the middle of an Arkham Encounter or while not in Arkham, but can be used before drawing an Arkham Encounter". Not only better, but way nicer to read.
-Ewan has been scrapped due to poor design and no interesting gameplay. Ideas that went into creating Ewan will be redirected into future projects.
*Ewan, like Chimbley, was made as more of a joke character in the earliest stages of custom creation. Unlike Chimbley, he didn't really have any great specifications or unique abilities, and his gameplay was really lackluster. Additionally, he could almost be considered overpowered once he passed his personal story. Ultimately, there's nothing really compelling about Ewan as an investigator and as such, I'm sorry to say, he's not worth keeping around. Basic ideas on which Ewan was founded, like self-recovery and item bonding via Duct Tape, will probably be re-evaluated and used in future designs. I'm a particular fan of Magical Duct Tape, and will probably try to incorporate it elsewhere.
-Image updated for "Griselda's Spear". No Actual Changes.
-No changes to Isaac, but a small change has been made to Samson
-Samson no longer automatically discards his fury counters for 1 clue token upon hitting 3.
-Samson's Bloody Fury now has "Any Phase: You may discard 3 fury counters to gain 1 clue token."
-Image updated for "Matenbou Staff". No Actual Changes.
ODIN SPHERE CONTENT
-Art assets have been updated for all Ancient Ones (Leventhan, The Cauldron, Darkova, Onyx and King Gallon), and art assets for Ancient One parts have also been updated (Baby Leventhan and The Cauldron Monster Tokens).
*Summoning legions really takes a lot out of Sieg. Because of how the ability works, Sieg could only really play at Maximum Speed (5) and would still only receive 3 movement points if he ever tried to take advantage of Legions, which is his only unique trait. My first inclination was to start him off with a Map of Arkham, but I decided instead to fix his ability at it's core so that smart players can find a way to create additional movement out of it.
-Apocrypha of Yzarc now allows you to summon a legion at any time during movement at the cost of half your remaining movement points (rounded up), instead of at the start of movement for half your overall movement points (rounded down).
*In the actual League of Legends game, Twisted Fate's ability to grant bonus money to everyone was recently reworked into a self-giving money tool based on the idea of rolling loaded dice. I was such a fan of this change that I decided to implement it onto his investigator sheet as well.
-Loaded Dice minor rework. Whenever Twisted Fate gains money outside of trades, retainers or Deputy of Arkham, roll a die and receive that much money instead. You cannot receive less money from this ability than you would normally (Ex: If you would receive $3 and you roll a 1, you will still gain $3. However, if you roll a 4, you receive $4 instead of $3).
>The second part of this ability remains unchanged (Any Phase: Once per turn you may add +1 to the result of any die rolled by Twisted Fate)
-Wording on Pick a Card revised to better cover what is actually happening with the ability, mostly where shop purchases are concerned.
-Personal Story pass condition now also requires discarding a gate trophy in addition to the ally and $6.
-Personal Story reward now lets you exhaust the card instead of discarding Astral Travel, instead of exhausting and paying 1 stamina.
ODIN SPHERE BUNDLE HAS BEEN UPDATED
I hope you guys enjoy the new image gallery, it took a long time to set it up but I'm pretty satisfied with it overall. If there's anything about it that bothers you, let me know.
