I say have it be a regular Curse and let Johon be immune to it; he dropped good money on that Artifact, aftar all, and he deserves to have the immunity it grants him. :wink:

I don't think it's unfair (unlike that "ethereal immunity" thing that everyone seems to be catching. :poke: ) just really challenging. He can't re-apply it though, so once everyone is blessed in a strategic fashion, we won't have to worry about it degrading us. I think it's a valid mechanic (although we'll see if I feel that way when I get around to blessing the spiders.) I personally like all the challenges we've faced during this adventure, but I'm sure as Helvetia glad I'll be getting double XP for this fight.

I like this idea, but it does seem a little Ranger-esque.  I, personally would have it go something along the lines of: "The Shaman transfers health from an enemy equal to the enemy's Level to the ally with the lowest Health, at the cost of one Ether."  Yes, that could result in quite a bit of healing for a "Miss"-type roll, but to balance it out it's rather difficult to get via Nostrum-use, it isn't affected by Encouraged (though it IS lessened if an enemy is Weakened), and it would cost Ether even if the healing is unnecessary.  If more balancing is needed, perhaps the amount should be one-half the enemy's Level.
But that would almost make "aim a better roll than a a "hit". :look:

True that. :thumbup:

I missed that Aranoc couldn't re-apply the curse, so that's good.  I still think Johon should be immune to it, though.

Almost, but not really (especially if it's done as 1/2 the enemy Level)--and remember, "Miss" rolls are superseded by three other rolls, which helps to balance the power.  Besides, it's not the only class where a "miss" is arguably better than a "hit"--as a Raider, I'd rather roll a bunch of "Steal" rolls than a bunch of "hit" rolls.

I don't mind, it's challenging and good fun. This curse is different enough that making existing artefacts ineffective wouldn't be such a stretch.

For the Miss roll, perhaps something like a mini Blood Ritual Aim type thing? During which damage is done to the enemy equal to WP, and the same amount of health is transferred to an ally.

I'm sorry, but I've come to the decision that the Shaman class is in balance now with just the Shield-skill changed, considering it is a damager/healer -type of class. Of course I understand that you want your class to be as strong as possible, but I'm trying to make all of them have their pros and cons. Well, the Master classes are insanely powerful, but we'll tackle that beast once someone hits Level 50 first. :tongue:

Brickdoctor, two of us are poisoned so we can't wait it out unless we use 2 remedies; I guess it's not that big of a deal since we're getting four at the end of this round, but still.

Doc, is the Cloak of the Blue Assassin bodywear or backwear?  If it's the former, De'kra can wear both it and the Cloak of Deception in one more battle, but if it's the latter I'll loan the Cloak of Deception to Barur and ask Barur to let De'kra wear the Ancient Crown (and try to Nostrum up De'kra so we have a shot at applying the Cursed-effect to all the enemies :grin: ).
Sorry for the late response. Like Pie said, a Cloak should be backwear and a Robe should be bodywear. I'm not sure how I've distinguished between the two types in the past, but that's how I'd call it if I dropped the item today.

Oh, I see what you meant. In that case, it would be better for you to attack the Unicorn, to kill it faster, right? The only way to not use a Remedy or continually heal you is to end the battle faster.

Pie, it's a testament to your NPCs and your writing that joining the crew of the Magpie is seriously tempting for both Arthur and for me.  If this were D&D, I'd have Arthur quit Heroica and start a new group with them.  Right now, I'm trying to come up with an in-character justification for Arthur not to join them. :blush:
