Good idea Sir!
Hopefully they've thought of this but suspect the community will add it quicksmart if not! Tons of cool plastic/clay models out there that could be used too.
Hello all! I just wanted to hear your thoughts about adding pillars to the boardgame. It would have many benifits such as being neat scenery pieces but also add to the tactical aspect of gameplay. My best idea (that ill admit i thought of in a hasty 3 minutes) is as follows:
1) pillars do NOT block movement into a node or block line of sight for any figure.
2) if a hero is sharing a node with a pillar, he is always considered "behind" it. This purpose is so if a boss were to move towards that hero and enters the same node containing a pillar it (the boss) would lose any remaining movement and/or immediatly end its turn (destroying the pillar in the process, removing the token/mini from the board). Or if the boss doesnt have enough movement to enter the same node but can still attack from an adjacent node it would protect the player (and again destroy the pillar in the process).
This gives players more tactical choices in combat because so far you can either move out of the bosses movement range or remember what move comes next and avoid that arc in order to be safe from damage. But this allows you to still be within movement range and/or the bosses attack arc and still be safe for 1 turn to drink an estus flask and prepare for the following attacks. Sorry if this is a bit wordy but ive done the best i can with how tired i currently am. Thanks for reading this lengthy bit and i hope to hear any additions/modifications you guys can think of!
