    Frostguard Thaumaturge

    Unholy Pact
    Trait. Attach to yourself. Whenever you play an Unholy card, a random enemy suffers one point of unpreventable Unholy damage. Keep. Duration 2.
    Never forget to offer the souls of your fallen enemies as payment to the demons. If you're lucky, they might get impatient...

    Reckless Fury
    Attack/Boost, Magic Unholy, Range 5
    Attach to target. Frenzy 3, duration 2. Subtract one from all block rolls target makes.

    Blood Frenzy
    Trait. You take two points of unpreventable piercing damage. Attach to yourself. If you are below full health, Melee Frenzy 2. If you are below half health, Melee Frenzy 4. Duration 2.
    Many skilled warriors have fallen to the blood cult's berserkers. As it turns out, almost killing them is deceptively easy.

    Brittle Armor
    Black quality
    Trait. Armor cards lose "keep" keywords in their armor section duration 3

  8. Wait, why does this make sense? To quote Grugg Axebreaker, "
    As Crusher and the Blunt Sword demonstrate, if your sword is dull, all you have to do is swing harder to deal more damage. I have always assumed that frenzies just make you swing harder. A better name for this might be Too Much Practice or something along those lines, signalling that you are attacking on autopilot and not putting any extra effort or skill in.

    Inspired by the new AA(15) to brew up some cards with unique mechanics. These definitely don't fit thematically on Helmets, sadly.

    Armor, Silver=
    At the start of each turn, add a Reliable Hide Armor to your hand.

    Armor, Silver+
    At the start of each turn, add a cloth Armor to your hand.

    Mostly Ghostly
    Attach this card. Character gains Invisibility Durration 1. While this card is attached, Add 2 to Move cards. Add Free Move. Duration 2.

    Wooden Skin
    Armor 1. While this card is attached, add a random bludgeon card. Duration 3.

    Steel Skin
    Armor 2. While this card is attached, add a random shield to your hand. Duration 3.

    Bone Shield
    +3 roll. Blocks vs piercing and slashing damage +2 to block roll. Blocks vs crushing damage +1 to roll.

    Do you mean add a random bludgeon card to your hand at the start of every round and add a random block to your hand at the start of each round?

    Block. Silver Quality. Uncommon.
    Block Melee. Push Attacker Forward 2 Fly. Turn to face attacker.

    Edit: changed free move to fly because I don't think one can free move through a square that an enemy is on.

    You can't play move cards when you're halted.
    I was thinking along these lines for this idea, motivated by the AA 15 discussion: Drunk. Tar quality. Trait. Duration 2. Whenever you play a move card after you move, move 1 randomly.

    The last line is supposed to be a secondary reaction, like with unstable bolt, as opposed to part of the attachment effect.
  16. I don't like the idea of traits with multiple effects. If I'd designed this all effects would be duration 2, and there would also be this stipulation.
    When Target plays an attack card, reduce the damage of that attack to zero.
    This would simulate ghosts not having to interact with, but also not being capable of interacting with the physical world.

    You do realize that the attacker will go nowhere, unless it was a range 2 attack and this will bring him into close combat?
  18. Won't the free move mean that the enemy will be pulled past you, behind you on a range 1 attack?

    Depends on where the character is positioned.
  20. Yeah, but it definitely does more than Wexmajor suggested.
