[Bug Reports] Storm of Magic
 
Is anyone here looking at doing a Storm of Magic update when it's released? Or would that be another file entirely? Just wanted to ask, thanks!

Just pre-ordered book, so no worries guys - I will get round to it!

How hard will it be to add the fifth "Monsters and Magic" category in excess of the nominal points value?

Because that seems like the sticking point to me.

Well, the post finally came at 5PM with my SoM book. I shall digest it tonight, and then see what plan I can work out.....

I don't know if anyone has told you lately UltraPrime, but you are the best!

I've not made any decisions yet, but wanted to throw this idea out for opinions.

Because anything you choose for a SoM game has no bearing whatsoever on your 'initial' army (ie, you have a 2,000 point game - you work out the 2,000pts as normal, then decide what you will spend your 500pt SoM allowance on) I was thinking of doing the SoM rules as a completely seperate file to the main WFB file.

This would have it's good and bad points. The bad point would be having two distinct lists, which means you couldn't drag units around to list magic items with characters who you intend to use them with.

The good points far outweigh this. Obviously, the way the points are allocated will be a nightmare to integrate into the main file. Plus I would have to edit every single file!

I'm still reading the book, so inspiration may hit me with a better way.

One last point, and I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with this yet. Summoning units - as you can choose pretty much any unit, and don't have to make the decision until you actually cast it, I'm not sure how to include stats for these. Any suggestions welcome!

Mr_Rose July 12th, 2011 01:04 AM

Summoned things...I really wouldn't bother.
People know what they have in their collections and the AB files can easily create and print out listings for a single unit if necessary, without modification.
Unless there's a way of automating that somehow?

Or maybe create a new point category "summoned 75pts" with the usual restrictions deleted, maybe as part of the SoM files.

Slight change of plan. I'm adding 'Storm of Magic' as a race to the files. This seemed easiest option. You will still need to create your main army, then your extra allowance.

I'm undecided at present whether I will add the new spells to this file, or tag them onto each individual race.

My first job is to get the Mythical Artefacts and Bound Monsters done. Once that is in place, I'll think how I'm going to handle Pacts.

How can you force Storm of Magic as a 'race' to be +25% of another's total? Or can't you?

Can you make it so that it's an 'ally' like Dogs of War or something? or make it affect the roster points total that way?

You can't, that's the point. You must create your extra 25% completely seperately. I can see no way of letting AB give you an extra 25% without it affecting the composition.
