Thread: Amu-Hah Shekala

  1. #1

    Amu-Hah Shekala

    OK, we've gotten through the “Backer Champions” we have so far and so we can start working with you guys' suggestions. I wanted to open with Amu-Hah here because he's undead and we could use another undead champion in my opinion.

    This is War Troll's pitch:

    Description- Hierophant class

    Once an Ancient Priest-King of a forgotten Kingdom long since swallowed up by the sands, Amu-Hah is a restless Mummy brought back to undeath when Elanraa's War of Ascension racked the World. A truly talented Cleric in life, he now serves the Unhallowed against the living.

    Abilities- Undead, Bolster Undead, Caster (Biomancy circle), Cursing Touch, Fear, Cold resistance, Electrical resistance, Fire vulnerability, Stoning immunity.

    Traits-

    Though armed with a Ceremonial Axe, Amu-Hah prefers to grab enemies by the neck and snap them like twigs. Should that fail, his cursing touch attack leaves the opponent far less able to resist. Extremely tough, strong, and highly resistant to magic, the embalming fluids and shroud that covers him is still flammable enough to be a liability.

    Any chance he could come with a khopesh (not an axe =) that is a rather weak weapon but has a hefty curse attached to it?
    Maybe random spasms that randomise a unit's attack strength from 15 - 110% for every attack.


    Ability: Unarmed. Does improved damage with bare hands but reduced damage with weapons.

    Now his touch/grip would be more damaging than the weapon but the weapon's curse could do all manner of vile and creative things that help him and other troops in the long run. =)

    glaive and voulge look almost the same, the difference between the two is that voulges have tangs (well not exactly tangs). bill hooks and guisarme are the same thing (well the guisarme is basically a specific type of bill hook).

    a khopesh is a primitive falx, which is in turn a primitive sickle.

    It's a side effect of playing too many role playing games. ^_^

    i like military history, the evolution of arms tells the tale of how needs have changed, some of it has to do with new tech, but not as much as people think.

    +1 from me, oh and I like the idea of being armed with a khopesh.
    Elder Dragon, Grand Chancellor x 2, Conjurer x 2, and some other type of Backer
