    1. Haha, I really should proofread better! Ignore that points cost altogether, and Jaguars are supposed to be fast cavalry, yeah.

  3. Fantastic book as normal. Have noticed a bug in the Spell Embrace of the Serpent. the second casting value for a extended version is casting value 8+ where the first casting value is 9+.

    Also have you considered writing a a designers brief to show what you were trying to do with the Army books or units. Or how you transferred background into game rules would be a be a great read and really interesting read.

    1. Thanks, will fix that.

      Not entirely sure what you mean... do you want me to write some kind of article on each unit's role and the army's playstyle? As for how I transferred background into rules it's rather simple: I just read something, get an idea, and make a special rule out of it that reflects the background, in short ;)

  4. G'day Mathias,
    I am writing ArmyBuilder 2.2 files for these books and I was just wondering if I could get a clarification on the Amulet of the Great Toad. Does the 4+ come before, after or instead of the normal roll to dispel?
    Regards,

    1. Hi, the roll is before, then you may still dispel as normal if you wish. Will clarify that in the next update.

  5. Great, thanks for that. I have a few more queries if it's not too much trouble. I will amass them as I write the files and give them to you in one hit.

    Congratulations on some high quality work.

    Regards, Steve.

    1. I'd appreciate that! Makes it a lot easier than having to back and forth between the documents all the time ;)

  6. Have finished Cathay and just seeking some clarifications;
    1. The Chu Ko Nu champion (Marksman) has extra Ballistic skill AND extra attack. Is this right?
    2. Spell Shroud, just confirming it lasts until caster's next magic phase?
    3. Spell Earth, just confirming it doesn't scatter and there are NO saves of any kind?
    4. Spell Meteor Rain, just confirming it is 3D6" radius, not diameter?
    5. Enchanted item, Gong of Tsao Tsao, is D6 rolled for each unit affected or are all the units affected by the one D6 roll?
    6. Just confirming that the Drum & Gong cannot move or join units? Also, do its points come from the Lord allowance?
    7. Is the Jin Shan's Great Leap of 6" part of its movement allowance or in addition to its movement?
    8. Tian Shi's Celestial Robe casts a spell automatically. Just confirming, there is no opportunity to dispel? It isn't defined as Irresistible Force so no miscast roll?
    9. Cheng Long's Breath Weapon, unclear as to whether it is St3 or St4?
    10. Dalan Tai's Dragontooth Bow, is the range 24"?

    Regards,
    Steve

    1. 1. No, he should only have +1 BS.
      2. Yes.
      3. Will nerf that one, the casting value is currently too low for what it does.
      4. Will switch it to radius, nerfing it to 2D6.
      5. Roll for each unit.
      6. It follows the rules for normal war machines. Allowance comes form the lord section, yes.
      7. Movement allowance.
      8. It can be dispelled as normal, you just don't need to roll dice to cast.
      9. Strength 3.
      10. Like a bow, it's 24".

      I'll have an update out soon to clarify these things with the smaller balance changes.
