if it hasnt been mentioned anywhere else,
i was thinking maybe using azhag the slaughterer as a special character for the undead army, or its leader. just my (2c) though.

been mentionmed a couple times. I don't know what goofy has in mind for it though.

I think its a bad idea. I'd rather have a non-dead special character, I'm not too keen on using characters from th epast..

well i suppose he is dead...and wasnt the crown of sorcery nagashs crown..... so could he not have risen again.....i still dont like the idea...but its doable

I think it would be better to have something more original than just an undead version of azhag.

Yeah except his crown got stolen and locked in a big box by the grand theogenist or however you spell it, so he wouldnt have it. Id also suggest you dont use premade special characters as it makes it worse and is nowhere near as fun either. Also, dont go overboard with the special characters either. We had a lot of different character designs for the Pirate Orc book and thankfully we cut them down in numbers at the end, so dont be affraid to do similar in this one. Good luck guys.

Does anyone have any ideas?
Gutta - January 18, 2007 04:42 PM (GMT)
I posted my special character idea a while ago. Based on Jack the Pumpkin King...
My advice is to aim for a Fighter and a Wizard, and thne soembody fun..

Wyck von orcstein
While alive Wyck was a powerful warboss leading the broken sword tribe through the forest of the empire. After overrunning Ostermark his tribe crossed to Sylvania where they met in ferocius battle with the forces of count Gregori von Carstien. The undead force slowly drove the orcs back and in a desperate attempt to win the battle fought his way through to the count. The duel was a one sided affair in which the vampire easily evaded the clumsy blows of Wyck and pinned him to the floor delivering the curse of vampirism to the orc. Seeing this the rest of the hoarde fled into the night.
Wyck meanwhile was mutated hrribly by the curse, intended for humans, and sonn lost his amazing strength and resilience, to be replaced by quick reactions and amazing speed causing him to go insane. Now he roams the old world always looking for blood.
|M Ws Bs S T W I A Ld |
6 8 8 4 3 3 9 5 10
Special Rules: Frenzy, Undead
Amazing Speed - always strikes first, 4+ ward
Level 2 nekromanza
Hates Vampires (including black coach), eternal hatred to von carsteins
For each wound caused by Wyck in combat he may raise either his S,T or W stat by 1, up to the values 6,5 and 4 respectively. However, if at the end of anyorc magic phase he is not in combat, these stats revert to their original values, if not already lower. Also provides the choppa rule
Not sure how many points, but he's not too powerful so perhaps 350-400
(hes the fighty hero by the way)

why would the vampire curse cause him to become weaker.....id think it would combine his orcy strength with the insane vampire strength...after all a vamp thrall is stronger than an orc big boss.
Chaos goblin - February 1, 2007 03:21 AM (GMT)
I would think he'd be super strong and somewhat faster.
carenthos - February 1, 2007 04:59 PM (GMT)
I did it so that he was a bit different and because I read that the vampire curse was unsuitable for non-humans
@Chaos Goblin, isnt he fast enough? - M6, Ws8, I9, A6(including frenzy)
Chaos goblin - February 3, 2007 01:22 AM (GMT)
Yeah, he's fast enough. i wasr eferring to the fact that your fluff said that he lost strength and gained speed, whereas Vampires are much stronger than normal humans.
