Re: Byzantii in the Middle East

Part of Islam's quick success in the byzantines was probably due to Byzantine being exhausted from a previous war (in our world). It's possible that with the alliance with the Infernii, they wouldn't have been so weak and would have been able to squash the islamic uprising or at least severely slow ...

Atalantes Burning Gaze invocation

How is this spell supposed to work exactly? It's a sight invocation that can only target friendly automatons. It also has maximum range and lethal range. Do we apply all standard modifiers when I target an automaton unit?

Atalantes balancing

Concerning the Toxokolossos; at first glance they seemed great, walking ballistas, but the truth settled in quite quickly after a few test games with them. Main issues with them is the very low skill, extremely low number of dice, pitiful might, prohibitive cost and rare ubiquity. I couldn't think o...

Re: Distributing shot (or invoke dice) to concealed warriors.

A mix of gigantic and not-gigantic makes sense to me with a Joined unit, but not with a Bound unit when the gap between could be quite large. In some instances you can even fit a whole other unit between the bound units and they're not affected by the gigantic unit in any way! I will conced the ride...

Technically their evade rolls would become difficult if they can't see the attacker. This also has the weird interaction when a boun...

Is there a reason hoplites in Darklands are written as Oplites? Ancient greeks wrote it as oplites, but there's a diacritic on the first O meaning it's pronounced with a heavy breathing sound, like the sound of the letter h, which is why it's often translated to hoplite and oplite. But what's the re...

Jutes and the Spiders. They're Foresters, so can Scout (I think). Also their bats are scouts as well, but they don't have any scout commanders. Many can get Flanker ability if you buy them a horse though.
