Good spot - sorted. They're 14 and 13 respectively.

Well, like that, for now. Until the Khelones are expanded that's the only way.

Yeah, got that wrong - I'll sort it. It'll end up 70.

Are these rules holdovers from the previous revision of the muster or are Fiannagh intentionally exempt from the realm caveat?


Fiannagh shouldn't be able to have them; they're Uí Néill, so only the Tuanagh should have them. I'll remove that. They'll be able to Bind to Deaisbard though, when they arrive (hearthguard).

Cheers

Concerning the 2-influenced-or-common-units-to-form-a-mainstay question:
when I read in the new muster rules « Each command must include at least one Mainstay unit of effective size within it - effectively the commander's household warriors - and this is called the command Mainstay unit», I find it perfect, both il terms of Darklands lore and in terms of game mechanics.
The rule of "2 influenced units = a command Mainstay unit" is in the same spirit, and a very good idea to allow variations while keeping coherence. But 2 random common units = mainstay... I really don't see the point...
So I think the muster rules are great as they're writen now, and only adjustements on who compels/influences who are required.

Yes, I am with you for sure, that's why I wrote it; I need to adjust nobles, basically.

Cheers

So I'll address this now...

demyse wrote:Ok. As far as I can see these are the miniatures (apart from sell swords) that are warlords or war chiefs that can no longer form commands
Rose of ker-ys
Augur drune
Seer drune
Harvest drune


They can have Veteran Ax-Drunes, although that's a bit silly... but it'll have to do for now. Hopefully this puts off lots of sorcerers as commanders, which was kind of my aim...

There will be some standard Drune infantry at some point - Spear-Drunes - but I won't add those until the miniatures arrive. One fine day...

The Rose will be able to Compel Sword-Melusines.

I'll make him able to Influence (Oplites, Phalangites, Khalkotes). Veteran Oplites will become Mainstay though.

demyse wrote:Thaumaturios (crap spelling, mage dude)


Veteran Oplites - same deal as the Ysian sorcerers, until something standard comes along... Oplites are good infantry, common, but not your bog standard Atalantes.

demyse wrote:, dreaguth deathbringer


Oops I forgot to reduce his Authority. He's now 33, so you can have him in another command with the Dreaguth Thain. Tough monkeys on him - he can't have a command... yet.

demyse wrote:Wiglaca (if wiht)


Whoops... he should be able to Compel Wihts. I'll sort that to be: Compel (Wihtgār); Influence (Wihtsweord, Wihtax). The Licwaca will compel all those.

Cheers
Rob
