Ok, this next AoD is gonna be huge! and the Mages will not be missing out!
We have the core Arena, we have brave (foolish?) warriors fighting monsters, and now, for a little touch of magic...
Ok, so i havent finalised the actual rules yet, but i think i have the Character selection system pretty sorted. Just sign up for now, and begin to think about Characters, incase of any changes.
Ok, here we go:
ALL important, please read
Stage 1: Choose your army and Character
-Characters chosen must have access, or be able to get access, to a Lore of Magic.
-Race specific rules will be granted (I.E TK cannot Miscast or IF, HE get +1 to dispel, DE get +1 to cast, etc)
-Magic Items and Wargear options may only be chosen from that armies rulebook (BoC/HoC may be mixed as normal), and only if the Character choice would ordinarily have access to the items.
-All Mages will have a standard statline as follows:
WS3 BS3 S3 T3 W3 I3 A1 Ld9
this statline will be used as necessary, and may ofcourse be improved / altered by magic item selection, or spell effects mid fight.
Stage 2: Select your Lore.
-This may be any lore allowed by the Character choice. The Mage will automatically know all spells from that Lore.
Stage 3: You may spend up to 250pts on your spell caster.
-This points limit DOES NOT include the base cost of the Character, but DOES include everything else. Marks, wargear, mounts, magic items, sprites, etc.
First off, determining your magic level
Each Mage begins at level 0, and gets 1Pd and 1Dd basic. This is Free.
Additional levels may be purchased as follows (cumulative):
Each additional level grants +1Pd. Levels 1 and 3 grant +1Dd
The level of your Mage will be the number of spells they may attempt to cast each turn.
Magic items may be selected at the cost indicated. Normal restrictions apply (i.e no armour unless mundane armour is available to the Character, only 1 magic item per category, except power stones and Dispel Scrolls, etc) As usual, only 1 bound spell allowed.
Points may also be spent on Marks, Vampire powers, Sprites, etc, so long as your Character choice is normally able to do so. Wargear may be chosen from the Characters unit entry.
There will be NO Close Combat phase, nor movement or shooting phases. Bear this in mind.
Magic items, such as the Diadem of Power, are legal. When submitting your Character, please state what you wish the effect of the item to be (i.e lose 2Dd and gain 2 Pd) and this effect will be applied constantly, from the beginning of a duel.
The Empire item which allows +d3 Dd, with a roll required, again when submitting please state the number of Dd required to be test for each turn.
There are many items like this, please just give specifics when Characters are finally submitted for entry.
For spells such as Master of Stone, Treesinging, etc, it will be assumed that the target is close enough to (or in) the something required for the damage to occur.
Mounts will not take hts for the mage. All spells will be directed at the mage itself. (im thinking HE Dragon Mage mainly) Normal mounts may grant armour saves as normal.
The List of entrants stands at:
2. AFG - received
3. Daelrog - received
4. Ginger - received
6. Herman - received
We are full for now, but ill chat with Dave and see if we can get it up to 16... so keep putting your names down if you want to be put in reserve, and keep an eye on this thread.

Lets say... all Mages are granted with a special armour free which prevents all types of physical harm. Except that could interfere with some spells... All mundane physical harm?

This would be my first AoD, but im intrested in signing up.
so the points cost of the unit we select is not added to our 250 limit?
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
They could block LoS. Impractical, yes, but it's a hypothetical situation. They don't have to make sense.
Inyhoo, count me in. Beast-shaman Want Fire will go to war (sorry about the real imagination shown in the name). otherwise, Wizard Lord Wilfred the Hapless will die for his college. Looks good so far.
I'll enter a character into this one. Whilst my entry into the main arena will be a terror to face, this one will be a little sneakier.
A dark figure approaches the magic arena from a far away land...
Every day it draws nearer and nearer, driven by the call of its patron deity...
Age has killed the unknown wizard's mount, so now the travel will be on foot (after a hefty meal!)...
The sorcerer grows more restless every day, the cry of bloodshed echoing in the wind...
Harsh winds berate the wizard, yet he pays no heed to nature's paltry defiance...
A lone troll, hungry for a meal, confronts the wizard...
Nothing is left of the troll but a pile of ash...
The wizard has arrived and has entered, soon his opponents will know his name, and will TREMBLE IN FEAR!

I am heading off to the Peace Corps. It is bery likely I will not be back. Good luck to all of you endeavors.
Ive received this in a PM...
Because the base cost of the character isn't included, but they have an additional 250 points to spend, does that mean that I could go with a 2nd Gen Slaan (135pts extra) and additonal equipment?
An this was my response...
At the moment, yes... although bear in mind the rules are not yet fixed, they may be changed if and when people start to ''break'' them. I may have to look at limiting it to 1Lord / Hero worth of slots, making the 2nd gen slann unusable, as he is 1L 1S + 1R i think. Ill ask around and see, keep the idea in mind though, its legal until any changes to the rules are made. Ill post specifically in the case of any changes, so you dont have to keep checking the opening post even when nothing may have changed.
No, the initial Char cost is not included in the 250 total. All Chars will have a basic statline, which will be modifiable by purchased Wargear etc (+1T etc...)
Block LoS maybe.. but how complicated would that get lol.
As for magic item limit... take the above PM response as your answer for this, ill see how breakable it is... although with 1 Arcane item limit, not even HE should be breaking this one too baldy...
Count me in Deci. I will be creating a character as soon as possible.... Something evil....
New LOChat functions now avaliable.

In this case I'm gonna have to skip...Look out for me in the monster arena though!
