The very first thing that I did not like when I read the new rules was the new meaning of misscast. and I would like to know whether any of you has a better name for this phenomenon.
In the previous version misscast and irresistible force were mutually exclusive. A misscast used to be a disastrous mishap. While irresistible force represented a stunning success. Now both of them happen at the same time which seems contradictory to me. I my opinion the current misscast can be described as the inability of the mage to fully control the magical energies he has channeled into his spell; like someone shooting with a big gun. So maybe recoil or something like that would describe it better.
And the magic items and such that cause miscasts on other rolls?
Irresistable Force is a miscast as the wizard channels too much power into the spell, sure it fires and nothing can stop it, but you can be pretty sure that popping into the chaos realms at the same time was a bit of an error on their part.
Saying that, my first miscast with dark elves had the roll where it hits everyone in base contact. She was stood next to one crossbowmen. So she cast an awesome spell and stabbed up her neighbour, which seemed oddly appropriate.
Fantasy: Wood Elves, Dark Elves, Beastmen and Tomb Kings.
LotR: Misty Mountains and Rohan
Moved to the Fantasy Battles section as it really isn't a rules question.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Sure you can find a way to explain the use of this word. But to me it just seemed like a convulsive attempt to stick to the old terms.
Nice proposals, especially the first one. Thank you!
Sure you stunties like see the collateral damage that 8people described, don't you?
I have one ..
