posticon Monster Magic Users Attacks


The stats for the Vampire Lord Necromancer are
 
3 Attacks and Necromantic Magic 4.

Until now I've played that each spell counts as an attack. Should I have allowed spellcasters to cast all the spells AND all the hand-to-hand attacks?
Because with a magic rating of 4 and only 3 attacks, the Vampire Lord in my system can never cast all his spells.

I am confused.

I have always assumed (but never had to worry much about such high-level beasties) that you cast all the spells at the start of the phase, then do the attacks if appropriate. So seperate.

Re: Monster Magic Users Attacks


Thanks for your expert advice. In trying to find the answer myself I also stumbled upon this magic rule that I didn't know.

From the Roleplay Book under Monsters abilities Magic:

In addition, all magic-using Monsters protect themselves with minor spells that make them harder to hit from a distance.
All missile weapon attacks made against magic-using Monsters are at -1 on the to hit roll.

@custodian
I never played with these high level beasties either, but in The Catacombs of Terror, which we are playing now, a Vampire Lord Necromancer appears (unless the Warriors are extremely lucky:-) )

Thanks again and it shows that even after playing this game for over a decade I still have a lot to learn emoticon

Re: Monster Magic Users Attacks


The most explicit rule I can find is on the "Necromantic Magic" card that came in the Catacombs of Terror expansion. It says:

quote:


The Dread King and Gunter Laranscheld have the ability to cast Necromatic magic spells. They cast their spells at the start of the Monsters' Phase, before they do anything else (ie. move and attack). To see which spell is cast, roll a D6, and refer to the list of spells on the reverse of this card.



You can see it does ecplicitly state that their spells should be cast at the beginning of the Monsters' Phase, and it implies that they do get to attack as well. I think you can expand from this that all other magic casting monsters work the same way.

Thanks Paul for that one.
We play a mixed Heroes&Monsters Phase but I will show them anyway.
I will use this to convince my players I am not cheating: They always moan when something changes that is not in their favour :-)
After killing the Enormous Spider with (and I am using a direct translation from a Dutch phrase) two fingers up their nose, they deserve to get some more opposition in the last four rooms of this adventure.
