 SDE Crossover, let's design it

It has been made clear that there will be no official SDE crossover with RRI. That is fine. Their reasons are good. SPM has a bunch of projects on their plate, many that are late. Why add work.

However, we can design it if we want to. I am sure that Topher would be happy to add it to the compendium in a crossover section. I am guessing that a Crossover section will happen sooner or later anyways. (* Side Note, if you see this, good work Topher! *) We can print the cards for our own games.


Train Crash!!!
Everything was going great for the Raiders....they had the Law Bots on the run and as they entered the engine car, or so they thought. Suddenly another group of Lawbots appeared, shots rang out and something important got hit! The train screamed out of control to crash on some backwater planet. As the dust cleared the raiders checked what was left of the nav unit...it just said 'Crystalia'...whatever that means. The train was burning...time to grab what loot they can and get out of here....


We have a crossover theme (or at least an idea for one, open to other options of course :) )

Anyone want to offer any suggestions on monsters and spawn points? If not I'll post something on it soon.

I am not very good at designing cards. I have a hard time trying to make them balanced, but I can give everyone some ideas to start with.

General weapon ideas: Shotguns would have a short range (2) with possible push, massive damage, or knockback abilities. Pistols would have medium range (4). Rifles would have a long range (6). Those with 2 weapons would have their pistol be their main weapon and the shotgun or rifle would be a unique action costing action points.

Marshals: They should have sturdy (can't take more than 1 damage per attack) or something like that as they are the best of the law bots. They should either be mobile spawn points (such as Rudehero suggested) or have an ability where they call in deputies for backup (such as the Giri's New Crop ability or the Tusker Pig's Funky Fungus Sniffer ability). Rifle unique action gives them longer range.

Sheriffs: Shotgun unique action should have a short range with push, massive damage, or knockback abilities.

Deputies: Mob ability.

I am sure that others will have more ideas to add. Hopefully this will get others with better card making skills started on the project. I will leave the heroes to others.

huh, the beta rulebook i have is just text? did i miss an update along the trail?


edit - but if the sherrif and law bots are used on the same arcade card the wallpaper of them provided would suffice, wouldn't be the best of bested bestness, but it would be a decent place holder

Shotguns should have a cone area of effect I think.

Maybe do three spawn points one for the base game lawbots, one for the cavalry lawbots and one for the old tyme lawbots? That way if people only own certain sets they can still play with the spawn points that they have?

My biggest thought right now is how to handle the spawn points. We don't have good miniatures for them. We could proxy with dice or something, but that feels odd.

The one thing I was thinking is to design a new scenario. Escape the Train Crash or something. Where you designate one side of the board as the train wreck. Instead of spawn points you have the lawbots spawn from the doors of the tile facing the wreck. The only downside is that there are no spawn points to destroy.

i was thinking (and this is Arcade mode specific) about doing a paired Spawn Point for the normal sherrifs n law bots in the base box, so most folks could use it, then a single spawn of the ones from either of the expansions.

i migh hunt down something to use as the spawn point mini today, shouldn't be too hard to find something of use.



@Imriel Thank You!!! i must have missed this upon notification, legend. (pun may or may not be intended... hahaha)

I like the idea of using the highest ranking as mobile spawner. Or maybe have all of them start on the board and spawning occurs via skills?

Since spray doesn't exist anymore,I'd go for a dex based sweep attack for the shotgun. Maybe sweep 3

I for one second (or is this third?) the idea of having the Sherif as a sorta living spawn point, it makes sense thematically and gives the RRI spawns a unique twist. The Sherif would just need long ranged attacks and abilities as well as being more durable. This would be because it would have to be serving the purpose of both spawn and most elite minion.

3 wounds would be a good start.

I would have thought it would need more, otherwise it might as well be a regular spawn point. Perhaps some ability to pass of damage to the deputies if they are base to base or something?

Perhaps the sheriff could have something like Goro's Feed Me ability (it could be called something like I Need that Part). I also think that there is an ability where you can shunt damage to an adjacent mini (I can't remember the name right now). The Lootimeter rules for SDE have the bosses shunt damage and status effect to adjacent monsters (maybe something like this would work).

If we could get more info on how the mobile spawn points work that would help immensely.

I would say 4 wounds if the Sheriff is the spawn point.

One other crazy idea, what if we make the Treasure chest the spawn point. The Lawbots are there to guard the loot after all. We make a Treasure Chest spawn point and when the "Heroes" defeat it they get the rewards from popping a spawn point and it then becomes a normal chest that can be looted. Thematically it makes sense that more Lawbots would keep appearing to guard the treasure.

I like the theme, but i think in practice it wouldn't really change much to game play. You know what I mean? At least with a mobile spawn it's something that would change how the counsel and hero have to play.
