The Lion


I decided to review this great character, because I love how it works.

Move:
4 hexes

Attack Dice:
1x standard
2x boosted
1x mighty


Defence Dice:
---
(yes you read right!!! no dice rolled during defence)

Life Points:
16

Special Ability:
FS - Fast Speed
This one doubles movement hexes for actual turn.

This character is really strong in attack and can run really fast all around the map... but it really lack some defence ability.
Said that, its greatest value is due to NPC Rules a.k.a Rules for using it as Non-Playing-Character.

Here it is a breif review on using Lion as NPC:
- Lion always moves last (turn order).
- 5-6 with 1d6 let him use FS ability.
- roll 1d6 for direction, considering 1 frontside of lion miniature and proceding clockwise for other directions (reroll if Lion already on the edge of the map).
- Lion moves in straight line until adjacent to another Gladiator (then immediate attack).

Hope this short review lets you understend the "unpredictable" power of this character.

Cheers
Alessandro
