We had them in past editions - the BrikWarrior and the BrikWussy - but the way I did it distracted too much from the core mission. This book has an increased focus on the four Horsemen though, so there's a possiblity to work them in as negative examples maybe.ninja_bait wrote:I like manuals that have Goofus- and Gallant-like characters to highlight concepts. Maybe you can make "Lurker" who just likes looking at cool creations and "Moderator" who routinely stomps scrubs in forum battles?
A couple big changes since the last time I mentioned - Horse Varieties and Riders are gone, probably for good, Crankiness and Heroic Weapons are moved out of the Core Rules to be introduced later. The system for controlling a Horse or other vehicle is a lot simpler now, and more in line with other equipment items.
As of this update, the only units in the Core Rules are the minifigs, the Hero (hard-limited to one Hero per player), and Horses. All the tactical variety in the Core Rules is now focused on weapon loadouts and terrain rather than minifig specialties, and it's a much more self-contained package than it was before.
