These things like the Eye of Sauron and an Oracle aren't exactly fitting for a unit that can see everything . The Eye of Sauron was clearly not omnipotent. Sauron was frequently mislead about the where-abouts of the One Ring. How else could it possibly be brought into Mordor? Lore aside, I still bel...

Ok SmokemJags, do you realize that when shroud is off, both players can see each other If a player had access to something that let them see the entire map while the other player remained blinded by fog and shroud, that amount of information is ridiculously unbalancing. Ever heard of an Oracle? Any...

There are much more reasonable ways to view sections of a map through a shroud.

Again, the point of something that can see the entire map seems utterly pointless since this is already accomplished by removing the shroud.

SO.. How about a unit that's some type of charm/golem/plant/something that's fixed in place, maybe no attack, costs alot, uses one of your castle hexes, BUT lets you see the whole map? What part of this sentence suggests otherwise? It sounds to me like this is exactly the suggestion of how it shoul...

Technically there is a scenario in HttT with a VP system. 1 kill = 1 VP. 25 kills = victory.
Though it's not exactly the same thing as what is being proposed here.

I think he means mage specific traits. Strong is friendly towards melee attackers. Dex is friendly towards for archers. If you ask me, intelligence is the mage friendly trait and it's good enough. Sure it helps on everyone else, but not as much as it does for the mage who needs huge amounts of exper...

Sounds good on paper. Communism sounds good on paper too.
Try putting it together and getting a working version for people to play test.

Heh yea me too, but not like I used to. Point is fire and smoke have a purpose in BattleTech. Clearing woods reduces base to hit. Creating smoke increases BTH. Creating fire increases heat and generates smoke. All important facets of BattleTech. In Wesnoth... clearing trees would be a purely anti-el...

Can't move, can't fight, costs a lot, but lets you see the whole map. Let's see... That would be a spy satellite. Somehow I don't believe they had those in an era of magic and goblins and such. If a player had access to something that let them see the entire map while the other player remained blind...

Then it wouldn't be a werewolf. It would be something original and would probably warrant an original name.

So the bull, the skeleton skull (or the goblin?) for the small humanoid, the ogre for the large, and the horse for the horse then?
