And so it has started very cool imo. She gives candy and run for support personnel and giving her dodge its icing.

Welcome!

Though she was posted here first hehe in the welcome to the SDE forum thread. I like her a lot (but then again, I really like support classes). She's heals, buffs and hard to kill all in one package. Just pray she never gets knocked down ;)

Also there are some pictures of the first expansion in this thread here on page 1 and 3: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=87

I can see her combining her potion with the Rogue 'draw 2 relics, pic 1' ability being quite powerful (And annoying for the Consul!)

True that, thats one thing I really enjoy about this game is the fact that even tho it has a chibi style to the game, it does have a deeper element to its gameplay mechanic that at first the art style would not suggest.

I'm thinking about buying and painting up Ruby and then holding her ransom against people I play. I play the Dark Consul and if you win, you get Ruby.

My friend and I played an 8-bit game with Princess Ruby the other day and she really did a fine job working with the Paladin. She gave her buffs where they were needed, helping to win key initiative rolls and her heal ability really helped keep fire from becoming a problem. Can't wait to see what the other two heroes do.

I cannot wait to use her as a Villian - we have a houserule that the Consul can take a Hero as a miniboss - and she'll give the Hexcast Sorceress a run for her money as Most Valuable Villain.

I think I'll paint her up as loligoth and put a little skull on the end of her staff....

That's a great idea! How do you find it works? Balanced?

That's a great idea! How do you find it works? Balanced?

It works out very balanced - we have a couple of groundrules for Villains:

1) No taking advantage of rolled potions/hearts (that's the Hero's benefit!) Yes, that means their Potion ability is a one-time-use only.
2) When the Consul draws Loot cards for 16-bit, he draws a second batch and picks one to equip to his Villain. When Super is reached, he picks a Treasure card for his Villain using the same rules as drawing and picking Loot cards (a straight Villain isn't a match for Rex, or even a tooled up Hero, so allowing some upgrades is a good thing).
3) In all other respects, they're treated just like Minibosses: cost 4 skulls to spawn/move, give a Treasure card after being killed, can be respawned, etcetera etcetera. They keep their Treasure/Loot cards drawn even after being killed - we say one of the bennies for working on the Consul's side is near-immortality! Their Potion token does refresh after being respawned.

We find that the best Villains are the Sorceress (for all those delicious debuffs), the Ranger (for her Remedy), and the Barbarian (who can hew down a Hero in a single round, provided she gets lucky rolls on her Rage).

I mean, it gets BORING as the Consul just using the same Rex's over and over again - that's why I introduced variety into it with this houserule. Oh, and making rules for my Bowser toy as a Boss... he's fun... Oh, and sculpting a set of Dragon Quest-inspired Slimes as another spawning point... but that's another thread.

And now I DEFINITELY can't wait to use Ruby... hrm, what's a good goth princess name? Princess Onyx. Yes, Onyx as a Villain.

I love this idea! My wife can't wait for the Princess and informed me that in no way will she ever be the villain.

Well, my girlfriend justifies the frequent use of the Sorceress as a Villain by saying that she "Loves those adorable baby dragons and can't stand the sight of those mean heroes beating them up all the time!"

She has also insisted that we buy two of the Princess, one for each of us to paint, so that's why mine is loligoth and hers is just... well... gonna be loli, probably. All pink and pretty.

One of my 'staple' AD&D adventures I have is where the PCs have to save the beautiful, demure dragon from the evil, ravening princess, so I'm no stranger to evil princesses.
