Earlier I had asked about going about making an MLP based Faction, this is sort of the idea I came up with. Any suggestions are welcomed. I am not going to be adding in any point values or stats. Just general list of traits.
Cabalis: Because ponies
Partial Plate: I wanted some sort of generalized protection
Scarred Veterans: The ability war veteran I think meshes well with the spirit of friendship
Open Landscape: Speed, just speed
Safety in Numbers: Larger squads
Built for speed: all the movement (plus more class 1 squads)
Side Vision: they're horses
Dirty fighting: Odd I know, but in the show ponies are depicted as being rather all in when they fight
Melee Combatant: They have no ranged
Skilled Combatant: Again. no ranged
Level 1 Classes
Earth Pony Herder
Beasts of the great hunt: Something of a cheap unit. Pony and their dogs
Earth Pony Engineer
Shamanism, Earthen Wall: I want some form of Magic early on. Somethign to offer defense should I be counter charged
Earth Pony Scout
Recon: I wanted a unit with recon.
Occult: Basically a cheap resource unit. Have them on the field supporting the casters
Shamanism, arching bolt : An offensive magic ability. I realize this does not scale well with the students, but at least it offers something of a ranged attack
Biestal Crossbreed: Avian: A flying a unit, not much else
Level 2 classes
This is where things get weird, and confusing.
Primitive weapons and armor: Primitive Spear
Weapons and Armor: light armor
Basically a more offensive minded unit, though one that lacks any war veterans trait
Biestal Hybrid: Cabalis
Insekt Hybrid: Coleoptera (This was hard since....well changelings in the show are weird. Went with this due to mimicy.)
More in you face unit compared to the Griffon.
Biestal Crossbreed: Avian Flight
This was more of a dump unit. I initially wanted lizard man soldiers (lizard people exist in the show) But I got confused with how to make a dinosaur. Plus I wanted 3 units of each of the ponies, so I went with this instead
Again, still confused with how lizards work. Especially with classes/
Biestal Crossbreeds: Avian Flight
Another defensive magic unit
Spere of Protection
The main casting unit. I will of course put lots of points into will.
Alicorn (based on Twilight Sparkle)
Biestal Crossbreed: Avian FLight
The addition of Shamanism is wierd, I will admit, but Twillight was known for teleportation, and I wanted Dimensional walk. Black bolt and Embolden are for combat and supporting the rest of the army. Basically more of a support leader.
Concerns. My concern with this faction are the monsters. I think I built them correctly, but I as a first time, I am not certain.
Also the magic. I worry if Iam not goin deep into the magic.
