Guide-Key Words
« on: August 04, 2013, 12:30:44 AM »
When I first started playing I found myself a number of times wondering what the heck some of the key words meant for game-play. So, in light of this, I want to gather up a list of all the key words with what they actually do.

Key Words:
Charge - Deployed directly to the assault zone.

Vigilance - Deployed directly to the defense zone.

Haste - Is not exhausted on its first turn.

Slow - Becomes exhausted after spending a turn in the attack or defense zone.-TimetoSplit

Unstoppable - Attack continues if defender in dies.-Tyonidas

Untouchable - Cannot be the direct target of abilities.-gpt999

Shield - A character with shield cannot be killed by non-damage effects while their Shield is "On". Characters come into play with their shield "On" and taking a non-damage kill effect will "Turn off the Shield", meaning the next non-damage kill effect will kill the character. Shield effects "Turn back on" at the start of the next turn.-Zinqf

Invincible - This character is not affected by anything that would destroy this character or reduce this characters' health. This character can still be sacrificed, removed from the game, returned to the hand or have their stats adjusted.-Zinqf

Consume X - When this character destroys another character, it gains health back equal to the health of the character destroyed and gains +X/+X where X is the value of consume.-WWKnight

Flying - Cannot be blocked except by creatures with flying.

Unique (Character) - A player cannot play a unique character from their hand while a unique character of the same name exists on the battlefield or the command zone under that player's control.-Zinqf (brought over from glossary)

Unique (Artifact) - A player cannot play a unique artifact to the support zone while a unique artifact of the same name exists in the support zone of that player's control.-Zinqf (brought over from glossary)

Up to date as of 8/9/13. Let me know through PM or just leave a message here if you see any problems.

Unstoppable allows the character to continue to attack if it kills the defender in front of it.

Slow exhausts the character every other turn.

When a character with consume kills another character, they heal damage equal to the amount of life the dead character had, and gain X/X, where X is the consume value.
I'm a pretty big deal around here.

Make these changes to the original post:

-Slow-Becomes exhausted after spending a turn in the attack or defense zone.

-Invincible-Cannot be destroyed by any means - still affected by Calamity, but Shikana allows it to stay (I believe, may have to check on this one).

Invincible - This character is not affected by anything that would destroy this character or reduce this characters' health. This character can still be sacrificed, removed from the game, returned to the hand or have their stats adjusted.

Slow - If this character was in the combat zone during the planning phase, they are exhausted at the end of that turn.

Fact - 42.3% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

Besides, I created the mechanic. If anyone knows how it works, it'd be me!

Thats right!  If you visit www.utopianchaos.com you will be seeing content from a bonafide game developer (technically speaking).

Thank you all for the help, I think that pretty much does it for now. Got it looking decent. If you guys see anything wrong just PM me or something. Hope this helps some of the newer crowd get used to the game while the tooltips are not in place.

Also, I would like to direct your attention to www.utopianchaos.com. :P
