I was thinking... what if you could temporarily "lend" a SN die to a summoned creature, giving it the abilities based on the type of die you give up in the process?stubby wrote:Resurrection, retroactive, and lasting effects are no longer possible in the updated system, although dead bodies can be animated on a turn-by-turn basis.
Rover the Red, firemage with supernatural dice 1d4 + 1d8 summons a Fire Sprite.
He chooses to spend his d4 in the process, giving it the following stats:
1 HP (number of dice used)
1d4 skill (the type of die used)
1d4 dmg (the type of die used)
5" move (like standard minifig)
4 armor (like standard minifig)
Right now, Rover has only his d8 left to perform his magick, but he will get the d4 back, once the firesprite is unsummoned or killed.
He could also use both his dice to summon a mightier Fire Elemental, which would have 2 HP (cause 2 dice were used) and either his skill, dmg, move or armor boosted by 1d8.
Of course, the idea needs tweaking, and possibly some additional effects should be added to different SN die types. Tell me what you think, would ya?
