Teleport Assassin (WIP)

Postby Arkbrik » Tue Feb 16, 2010 11:54 am

Teleport Assassin

Cost: 17 CP

Skill: D8

Move: 5" (10" teleport)

Armor: D4

Specialties: Teleport

A Teleport Assassin can teleport up to 10" instead of moving normally. It may also teleport when Sprinting or Bailing. A Critical Fail on a Sprint or Bail sends the Assassin D6" in a random direction. If the Assassin ends up inside another object, both the Assassin and the object takes 2D6 damage.

So, this is a unit for an upcoming army of mine. It is heavily inspired by the Komato assassins from the game Iji. No statcard yet, since the rules are still in progress.

What I need

- Feedback
- A better name for it
Remus: Harry... I'm a werewolf.
Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

Give him CC mastery so he can only use swords and the like, and reduce his base skill to 1d6. As for the name maybe Tele-sassin

I made some teleport rules a while back for House Gnomes I think. They used the same system as Use Ratings and missed attacks. It's just easier that way so you don't have to remember another set of rules.

Teleporting rules:
Teleportation is a separate type of movement that you buy (like flying, swimming, or walking/running) and you buy it separately from any of those. The cost is like flying, where it costs 2CP per two inches plus its structure level.

You are able to teleport/travel as many inches as your movement allows. Place a marker at the location you wish to teleport to.

There is a skill roll involved in teleportation. The skill roll starts at a use of 2 for 2 inches (which would be the minimum distance that you could travel while using it) and for every 2 inches after that it goes up another 1 (so going 2 inches is a use of 2, 4 inches is 3, 6 inches is 4, etc.).

If you miss the skill roll, the minifig lands somewhere else, a distance of however much the use roll was missed by in inches away from the targeted spot. The opposing team member decides which direction.


See, same rules as firing a ranged weapon. Actually, you could probably just take out the whole skill roll changing for each increment of inches and just leave it at a base skill roll of 5 or something. Maybe even 6. It makes sense and makes it a bit more balanced if you have a higher chance of hitting off target at least by a couple inches if you're moving 10" a turn. I guess this is my new, revamped version of these rules:

You are able to teleport/travel as many inches as your movement allows. Place a marker at the place where you wish to teleport to up to your maximum Teleport distance.

Make a skill roll. The skill roll determines whether you land on target or not. A skill roll for somewhere you have a line of sight to is 4. A skill roll for somewhere you do not have a line of sight to is 6.

If you miss the skill roll, the minifig lands somewhere else, a distance of however much the use roll was missed by in inches away from the targeted spot. The opposing team member decides which direction. A Teleporting creation cannot be Teleported into a solid object (like a wall or other creation) unless it makes a critical failure on its Skill roll.

Hmm. I like the idea- this could also prevent snipers and troopers from taking reaction shots at the mini while he runs for cover. A good name could be 'Telebrik Commando'... or does that sound dorky?

Haha, it's the dapper clown thread, where I got my first ban!

CC mastery is a good idea, but I'll keep the skill as D8 since this unit is meant to be an elite.

Those rules seem good. Thanks!

And for the name, I'm thinking... TeleKommando. Does it sound good?
Remus: Harry... I'm a werewolf.
Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.
