I'm fine with it, it's as much of an advantage as a disadvantage when you think about it (since your own guys can pick up the talismans as well) and it adds another layer to the battle as the SN dice aren't removed from the game as soon as someone goes 'lol all of my guys shot your mage'.

If you use a staff and a SN die for direct damage, do you get another SN die of damage if you get a 6 or more on the action roll you make for using the staff like you do with normal attacks?

Didn't see anything regarding overskill in the dice chapter. :mystery:

This sounds fine to me. Bennies in general are pretty flexible so I usually leave stuff like this to a judgment call by the players.

If you don't have your wand / staff for whatever reason, can you use one SN die to add range to the effect of the other SN die?

yeah, you're supposed to be able to use sn dice together to create spells or whatever.

Unless the SN die was actually in the wand or the staff. But SN users don't have to channel their powers through any special pieces of equipment if they don't want to. Wands and staves are just a cheap way to add CC and ranged attacks without having to buy more SN dice.

Real SN users rely only on what is in their Heart! And Beard! And Cape! And Pants!

I am very confused on the cost of Supernatural Dice and generating Summoned Creatures.

I have a wizard who is a cookiemancer and want him to be able to summon gingerbread soldiers. To be able to summon a gingerbread man with the stats of a standard minifig, that would require 4d6 to be spent on the effect (1 for each stat effectively). Am I getting this correct or am I missing something? And then further dice would need to be spent for equipment, like pretzel stick spears, correct?

EDIT Post Script: Okay, after reading the section again, summoning minifig equivalent things is by spending a D6 (effectively summoning a 6creant) and summoning equipment is by spending dice on a roll against effective equipment size (So spears would be Medium Equipment with an effective target number of 3 on the superdice) with the D6 used to maintain the summoning effectively spent until the minions die or get dismissed, but the dice used for generating the equipment return to the SN dice pool next turn whether they succeed or not, correct?

Sorry I'm late, I got behind on checking the forum.

To make your cookie man, you'd start with one Image to create a 6creant. He starts out with a d6 he can use for either Action or Move; a second Image lets him have one for each.

Gingerbread man, cost: 2 SN Image
Stats: Size:1" Armor:Image Action:Image Move: Image"

The cookie man could pick up any weapons lying around, or you could summon some with more supernatural dice.

Any one of the three effects will end when you recall its supernatural die.

Thanks for the clarity, Mike. It clears some things up.

I was going to ask a stupid question about conjuring Spawning Generators to generate Canon Fodder, but I think I can figure it out. :fudge:
