Ignore this post. This has been incorporated into the complete rules list below.
Spoiler: show
Here's a first draft attempt at Dollamancy. Let me know what you think.

Edit 1: Added Wargamer, decreased healing costs.

Edit 2: Expanded golems to include multiple material types (only impacts appearance); Clarified mount creation rules.

Under the Magic section:
Item Slots : Each unit can equip at most 1 Crown, 1 Armor, 1 Weapon, 2 Rings, 1 Bracer and 1 Cloak. All magic items must belong to one of these slots. Crowns can only be worn by Rulers. Mounts, Constructs, and Uncroaked cannot wear magic items.

Spookism (Dollamancy)
Dollamancy can create Magic Items with charges. Once the last charge is used, the item turns to dust. Magic Items are created in the Dollamancer's square, but can be handed to another unit as a free action. Equiping a Magic Item during combat requires an Action. Dollmancers can create Golems out of Cloth, Wood, Crystal or Plastic. Other than appearance, the material used does not affect the golem.
Bonus: Caster who specializes in Dollamancy can choose to spend Juice instead of a charge for any Dollamancy item they have created and equipped. Juice cost is 1/2 the cost required in the item creation. Caster can also create Rainments, allowing them to change their (or other units') clothing each turn.

    Craft Cloak Allows caster to create one of three different types of cloak: Negate Fire, Negate Attack/Strike, Negate Hiya/Hoboken. Each cloak has 1 charge. (8 Juice)
    [Requires Craft Cloak] Craft Lesser Golem (1 AP) - Allows caster to create Lesser Golem (treat as Warrior with 1 AP and Construct special). (16 Juice)
    [Requires Craft Cloak] Enhance Weapon (1 AP) - Allows caster to enchant a weapon so that it grants a +2 Enchantment Combat Bonus. Each Roll modified by the weapon consumes 1 charge. The weapon reverts to a normal weapon when all charges are consumed. (4 Juice / Charge)
    [Requires Enhance Weapon] Enhance Armor (1 AP) - Allows caster to enchant armor so that it grats a +2 Enchantment Defense Bonus. Each combat Roll made against the caster (that doesn't ignore defense) consumes 1 charge. The armor reverts to a normal armor when all charges are consumed. (4 Juice / Charge)
    [Requires Enhance Weapon] Craft Blaster (1 AP) - Allows caster to create a Bracer that grants Hoboken with a limited number of charges to the wearer. (6 Juice / charge)
    [Requires Craft Lesser Cloth Golem] Repair Golem (1 AP) - Allows caster to partially or fully repair a damaged Golem. The caster can control exactly how much is repaired. (1 Juice / 4 Hits repaired)
    [Requires Repair Golem] Craft Golem (1 AP) - Allows caster to create Golem (treat as Level 2 Warrior with the Construct specials). (32 Juice)
    [Requires Repair Golem] Wargamer (1 AP) - All Constructs created by this caster and stacked with this caster gain +1 Combat / +1 Defense for each level this caster has.
    [Requires Craft Golem] Craft Greater Golem (1 AP) - Aullows caster to create Greater Golem (treat as Level 3 Warrior or Spearman with the Seige(1) and Construct specials). (48 Juice)
    [Requires Craft Golem, Level 8] Craft Golem Mount (1 AP) - Allows caster to create Golem Mount (treat as Level 2 Spearman with the Heavy*, Mount and Construct specials). (64 Juice)
    [Requires Craft Blaster, Level 8] Craft Item (1 AP) - Allows the caster to create custom permanent magic items. (Variable Juice required, based on item)
* Heavy is a free special, and does not consume any AP the unit is otherwise entitled to.

Ignore this post. This has been incorporated into the complete rules list below.
Spoiler: show
Updated Status Effects and Hippymancer descriptions: (hopefully these make the effects more clear)
Immobilized: Immobilized units lose any delayed Moves, and do not regain their Move each phase while Immobilized. Immobilized units defense cannot receive bonuses to their Defense, and receive a -2 Immobilization Penalty while Immobilized.
Incapacitated: Incapacitated units lose any delayed Moves and Actions, and do not regain their Move and Action each phase while incapacitated. Incapacitated units have a 0 Defense, which cannot be modified. Wards and Negation effects still work normally on incapacitated units.
Stun: Stunned units lose their next Move and Action. If unit is currently delaying a Move and/or an Action, unit loses those instead. (So a unit delaying an action when stunned loses their current action and their next Move, but can use an Action on their next Phase.) Constructs and Uncroaked are immune to Stun.
Calm: Unit automatically delays their Action, although they can still Move. Any attack against a Calm unit breaks the Calm and allows them to immediately respond, even if the attack has no effect or is negated. Any adjacent unit can awaken a Calm unit by spending an Action. Unless otherwise noted, Calm targets that are not Constructs or Uncroaked will surrender if all units on their side are Calm, Incapacitated, or croaked.
Stacked: A unit can only belong to 1 stack at a time. A stack is limited to 8 units.

Hippymancy (Flower Power)
Bonus: Caster who specializes in Flower Power can choose to have damage inflicted by Caster that would normally kill a target reduce the target to 1 Hit and Stun the target for 2 rounds instead.

    Space Out - Target is Calm for 2 rounds. (1 Juice)
    [Requires Space Out] Peace Sign (1 AP) - Target Calm for 4 rounds.(3 Juice)
    [Requires Space Out] Entangle (1 AP) - Target is Immobilized by vines for 2 turns. (4 Juice)
    [Requires Peace Sign] Groove (1 AP) - Up to 3 adjacent targets are Calm for 2 rounds. (5 Juice)
    [Requires Entangle] Call Fire Flower (1 AP) - Summons a Fire Flower in target square. Fire Flower lasts until slain. (16 Juice)
    [Requires Entangle] Choking Vines (1 AP) - Target is Immobilized by vines for 3 turns. Target takes 2d6 Hits / turn. Ignores Defense. (8 Juice)
    [Requires Choking Vines] Call Treant (1 AP) - Summons a Treant to fight for the caster. Treant will leave at the end of the combat. (40 Juice)
    [Requires Groove, Level 8] Give Peace A Chance (1 AP) - All enemy units are Calm, but do not surrender. Any hostile action by any enemy unit removes the Calm effect from all enemy units. (30 Juice)

Fire Flower : [6 Combat / 2 Defense / 10 Hits / Fire. 0 Move, 0 Overland Move.]

Notes on Give Peace A Chance : The intent of the spell is that if any situation breaks the Calm and allows any unit to attack, all units can attack; however, it also allows the attacked unit to choose to do nothing and keep the rest of the side calm, so it doesn't just break when one unit is attacked. Also, since all units enemy units are Calm, none of them can spend actions to awaken each other. Let me know if you see any loopholes. :D

Darkness Rising - Rules (v1.1 - Draft)
Here is the accumulated updated rule set for the Darkness Rising Campaign. These rules will go into effect immediately after the Bone Dagron encounter. This is your last chance to comment before these changes are final.

Character Creation
Spoiler: show
A player selects from one of the following builds:

Warrior: 5 Combat / 5 Defense / 14 Hits. 8 Square Move. 8 Overland Hex Move. Attack. 3 AP to purchase abilities.
Spearman: 5 Combat / 4 Defense / 12 Hits. 8 Square Move. 8 Overland Hex Move. Strike. 3 AP to purchase abilities.
Archer: 7 Combat / 3 Defense / 10 Hits. 8 Square Move. 8 Overland Hex Move. Fire. 2 AP to purchase abilities.
Flier: 4 Combat / 4 Defense / 8 Hits. 12 Square Move. 12 Overland Hex Move. Fire. Special: Flying.
Caster: 3 Combat / 1 Defense / 4 Hits. 8 Square Move. 8 Overland Hex Move. Fire. Special: Caster (choose type - see Magic below), 8 Juice.

If a build gets AP to begin with, it can be spent purchasing Attack Modifiers and/or Abilities (see below).


Leveling
Spoiler: show
Upon leveling, each unit gains 1 AP, +4 Hits and 3 Combat Stats.
Each Combat Stat can be spent for +1 Combat, +1 Defense, +3 Hits, or +3 Juice.
In addition, units with Flying gain +2 Overland Hex Move each level, and Casters gain +8 Juice each level.

Upon leveling, Casters can choose to spend their AP on a spell in their discipline. Casters can also choose to purchase the 1st spell in another discipline for 1 AP, but they do not get the Bonus listed for specializing in that discipline.


Basic Attacks
Spoiler: show
Attack: Deal Combat+2d6 Hits of damage to an adjacent opponent, reduced by their Defense.
    Rage: At 4th level, a unit with Attack can make one additional attack against the same target.
    Fury: At 8th level, a unit with Attack can make one additional attack against the same target. Stacks with Rage.

Strike: Deal Combat+2d6 Hits of damage to an opponent who is adjacent or up to 2 squares away, reduced by their Defense.
    Lunge: At 4th level, when attacking an Adjacent enemy unit, a unit with Lunge can make a Strike against a unit behind their primary target as well. Cannot be used with Sweep.
    Sweep: At 8th level, a unit with Lunge can choose to sweep 3 adjacent targets. Cannot be used with Lunge. Cannot target a rider on a Mount (although the mount can be targeted).

Fire: Deal Combat+2d6 Hits of damage to any opponent on screen that they have clear line-of-site (RLOS) to, reduced by their Defense.
    Quick-shot: At 4th level, units with Fire gain an additional attack against any target.
    Flurry: At 8th level, units with Fire gain an additional attack against any target. Stacks with Quick-shot.


Attack Modifiers
Spoiler: show
Attack Modifiers can be purchased more than once, and their effects stack. A single Attack Modifier can be purchased up to three (3) times. A unit can only purchase as many ranks of Attack Modifiers as he has levels. When applying multiple attack modifiers, you cannot reduce your base Combat or Defense below 1. Any ranks that would reduce a stat below 1 fails. The bonuses from these modifiers do not apply to attacks against structures; only attacks against units can be modified in this manner.

Block (0.5 AP): Get Defense +3 and Combat -2 for the round.
Mighty Blow (0.5 AP): Get Combat +3 and Defense -2 for the round.
Guard (0.5 AP): Get Combat -2 for the round. A single adjacent ally gains +3 Defense for the round.
Interpose (0.5 AP): Get Defense -2 for the round. A single adjacent ally gains +3 Defense for the round.
Support (0.5 AP): Get Combat -2 for the round. A single adjacent ally targeting the same enemy as you gains +3 Combat for the round. Bonus cannot be applied to Multi-target spells.
Coordinate (0.5 AP): Get Defense -2 for the round. A single adjacent ally targeting the same enemy as you gains +3 Combat for the round. Bonus cannot be applied to Multi-target spells.


Additional Abilities
Spoiler: show
Additional Abilities are unique modifiers. Each can only be purchased once.

Dance-Fighting (1 AP): All units in the same stack with Dance Fighting get +1 Combat / +1 Defense for every 2 dancers in the stack, rounded down. The bonus from Dance-Fighting does not apply to attacks against structures; only attacks against units can be modified in this manner. A unit with Dance Fighting can drop from a stack freely at any time, but joining an existing stack after the turn has begun counts as an action for that unit. The bonus takes effect after the action completes, so this bonus cannot be used to protect against attacks that occur simultaneously with the dancer's action.

Beefy (1 AP): Unit gains an additional +8 Hits.
[Requires Beefy, Level 4] Chunky (1 AP) : Unit gains an additional +12 Hits.
[Requires Chunky, Level 8] Thick As A Brick (1 AP) : Unit gains an additional +16 Hits.

[Requires Caster] Juicy (1 AP): Unit gains an additional +8 Juice.
[Requires Juicy] Succulent (1 AP): Unit gains an additional +12 Juice.

Well-armed (1 AP): Unit gains an additional +3 Combat
Well-protected (1 AP): Unit gains an additional +3 Defense

Heavy (3 AP): Unit gains +3 Combat / +4 Defense / +10 Hits. Units with Heavy cannot ride a mount.

Leadership (3 AP): All units in the same stack get +1 Combat / +1 Defense per level of the highest level character w/ leadership. Only the highest bonus applies. Max Leadership bonus +3/+3. The bonus from Leadership does not apply to attacks against structures; only attacks against units can be modified in this manner. A leader can use his action for the turn to restack (he can reassign his bonuses to any units that are not already in another stack). This allows up to 14 units to gain the benefit from Leadership over the course of a round. Units in the new stack gain the benefits after the current action completes, so the Leadership bonus cannot be used to protect against attacks that are simultaneous with the Leader's action.
[Requires Leadership] Improved Leadership (1 AP) - Increase max Leadership bonus to +6 / +6
[Requires Improved Leadership] Commanding Leadership (1 AP) - Increase max Leadership bonus to +9 / +9

[Requires Guard, Interpose] Bodyguard (1 AP) - Half of the Hits inflicted upon a target (rounded up), from any source, that this unit is Body-guarding is inflicted upon this unit instead. If two units with Bodyguard are Body-guarding the same target, that target takes no damage, the Body-guarding units absorb the damage instead. The attack on the guarded unit is calculated as normal, but all hits inflicted are distributed to the bodyguards instead. Cannot be used with Guard and Interpose. (Note: Since damage is rounded up, odd Hits will deal more damage to paired bodyguards. Example : 9 Hits are split as 5 Hits each to 2 bodyguards.)
[Requires Bodyguard] Elite Bodyguard (1 AP) - Unit can Body-guard 2 units simultaneously, as long as those units are adjacent to the Body-guard and each other.

[Requires Might Blow x3] Reckless Assault (1 AP) - Get Combat +5 and Defense -3 for the round. This ability cannot be used if Defense would be reduced below 1.
[Requires Block x3] Shield Mastery (1 AP) - Get Defense +5 and Combat -3 for the round. This ability cannot be used if Combat would be reduced below 1.


Magic
Spoiler: show
All spells are RLOS unless specified otherwise. Casters can purchase spells outside of their primary discipline, as long as they have more spells in their discipline than they have in any non-primary disciplines. (So, if you have 3 spells in Healmancy, you can have 1 in Shockamancy and 1 in Luckamancy, or 2 in Croakamancy.)

Item Slots
Each unit can equip at most 1 Crown, 1 Armor, 1 Weapon, 2 Rings, 1 Bracer and 1 Cloak. All magic items must belong to one of these slots. Crowns can only be worn by Rulers. Mounts, Constructs, and Uncroaked cannot wear magic items.

Scrolls
Scrolls are triggered items that duplicate the effects of the spell or effect inscribed on them. Only casters can use scrolls. Casting a scroll counts as an action. Casting a scroll does not consume any Juice. The scroll is destroyed when used. Scrolls can be passed freely between adjacent units as a free action.

Potions
Potions are triggered items that target the potion drinker. Any humanoid unit can use a potion. Drinking a potion counts as an action. The potion is destroyed when used. Potions can be passed freely between adjacent units as a free action. A Healmancy potion can also be used on an incapacitated unit.


Clevermancy (Healmancy)
Spoiler: show
Wards last until all granted damage has been absorbed. Only 1 Ward can be in effect on a target at a time. If target receives a ward when a ward is already in place, target chooses which ward remains.
Bonus: Caster who specializes in Healmancy can create a Potion for any Healmancy spell they know. Potions cost 8x the spell's casting cost in Juice. This cost can be paid for over multiple turns.

    [Requires Revitalize] Renew (1 AP) - Heal 16 pts to 1 target (2 Juice)
    [Requires Revitalize] Minor Ward (1 AP) - Absorbs 8 damage on 1 target. (2 Juice)

Clevermancy (Luckamancy)
Spoiler: show
Luckamancy spells last until used, and can persist over multiple turns if not used. Only 1 Luckamancy spell can be on a unit at a time.
Bonus: Caster who specializes in Luckamancy can create a Potion for any Luckamancy spell they know. Potions cost 8x the spell's casting cost in Juice. This cost can be paid for over multiple turns.

    Roll the Bones - On their next Attack, Strike, or Fire action, all target's d6 'rolls' are treated as 6s. On the following round, for every d6 modified in this way, an enemy unit will also max a d6 roll. (Enemy rolls can apply to any melee or spell action.) (1 Juice)
    [Requires Roll the Bones] Fumble (1 AP) - On their next Attack, Strike, or Fire action, all d6s rolled by the target is treated as all 1s. On the following turn, for each d6 modified in this way, one '1' on the enemy's side will be converted to a '6'. (Enemy rolls can apply to any melee or spell action.) (3 Juice)
    [Requires Fumble, Level 4] Lucky Streak (1 AP) - As Roll the bones, but the effect lasts for 3 turns. (8 Juice)
    [Requires Fumble, Level 4] Guardian Angel (1 AP) - The next spell cast against target is negated. (10 Juice)
    [Requires Lucky Streak, Level 8] Critical Fumble (1 AP) - Target's next Attack, Strike, or Fire action is completely negated. Deals target unit's Combat + 2d6 damage to target, minus Target's base Defense (ignoring positive modifiers; negative modifiers still apply) (10 Juice)
    [Requires Lucky Streak, Guardian Angel , Level 8] Can't Lose (1 AP) - For the next 3 rounds, all dice rolls made by Caster's side are automatically 6s. All dice rolls made by the enemy's side are automatically 1s. On rounds 4 through 7, all rolls made by caster's side are automatically 2s, and all dice rolls made by the enemy's side are 5s. (60 Juice)

    [Requires Groove, Level 8] Give Peace A Chance (1 AP) - All enemy units are Calm, but do not surrender. Any hostile action by any enemy unit removes the Calm effect from all enemy units. (30 Juice)


Naughtymancy (Croakamancy)
Spoiler: show
Units created by Croakamancy during combat arise where they died, unless otherwise noted. Hits lost via Decay cannot be restored by any means. Croakamancy units are able to act on the same round that they are created, at the end of the round on which they are created, after all other units have gone. They can react as normal, based on their combat stat, starting on the next round. Unless otherwise noted, all units created by Croakamancy last until destroyed or decays.
Bonus: Caster who specializes in Croakamancy can extend their senses through any Uncroaked they create. Caster can negate Normal Decay by recasting the spell that created the unit each turn. Extended Decay occurs on the 3rd turn and cannot be prevented.

    Reanimator - Animate a single fallen humanoid unit (friend or foe) as a Minor Uncroaked (treat as Warrior with 1 AP and Uncroaked special). (4 Juice)

    [Requires Reanimator, Dance Fighting, Level 4] Thriller (1 AP) - All Minor Uncroaked, Skeletons, Uncroaked, and Bone Horrors created by this caster and stacked with this caster gain Dance Fighting.
    [Requires Bone Puppeteer, Level 4] Bone Warlord (1 AP) - All Minor Uncroaked, Skeletons, Uncroaked, and Bone Horrors created by this caster and stacked with this caster gain +1 Combat / +1 Defense for each level this caster has. This bonus is a Leadership bonus, and does not stack with the bonuses granted by the Leadership ability. The bonus from Bone Warlord does not apply to attacks against structures; only attacks against units can be modified in this manner.
    [Requires Uncroak, Level 8] Trioxin (1 AP) - Animate all fallen humanoid units in the hex as Minor Uncroaked. All units created by this spell decay to dust at the end of the current combat. (45 Juice)
    [Requires Uncroak, Level 8] Bone Horror (1 AP) - Create a Bone Horror. Bone Horrors do not decay. Bone Horror fills a 2x2 square area, and is summoned directly in front of the caster. Creating a Bone Horror requires that there are 6 fallen humanoid units on the field, which are destroyed in the process. Bone Horrors are immune to all Healamancy, and do not revert to full health each turn.(50 Juice)


Naughtymancy (Shockamancy)
Spoiler: show
Against Plus-sized targets (targets that occupy more than one square), Shockamancy spells that affect multiple squares will do the specified Plus-Sized damage for each additional square the target has in the area of effect. Riders on mounted targets that are hit with a multi-square shockamancy spell take half the base damage, excluding plus-sized damage, that their mount takes, rounded down.
Bonus: Caster who specializes in Shockamancy can create Juice Restoration Potions. Max Juice that the potion can restore is 4x Caster's level. It costs 8x Juice restored in order to create the potion. This cost can be paid for over multiple turns.

    [Requires Hiya] Hoboken (1 AP) - Deal Combat+2d6 to 1 target. Ignores defense. (2 Juice)

Eyemancy (Foolamancy)
Spoiler: show
Unless otherwise noted, all Foolamancy spells last until the target attacks or the target's next turn begins. A unit can only have one Foolamancy spell active on them at a time.
Bonus: Caster who specializes in Foolamancy gain an additional +2d6 on their Spot rolls against another caster's Foolamancy.
Spot Check : Any unit with Leadership and any caster can negate a Foolamancy by making a Spot check. Unit rolls 1d6 / level; if total exceeds the Foolamancer's Defense + Foolamancy Spell Modifier (FSM*), the Unit can see through the spell. A unit can attempt to make one spot check for each enemy unit concealed by Foolamancy. A success on any unit reveals all units under the same spell.

The illusionary duplicates can perform entirely different actions from the original units. +6 FSM. (5 Juice / Target)
* - May you be Touched by his Noodly Appendage.


Spookism (Dollamancy)
Spoiler: show
Dollamancy can create Magic Items with charges. Once the last charge is used, the item turns to dust. Magic Items are created in the Dollamancer's square, but can be handed to another unit as a free action. Equiping a Magic Item during combat requires an Action. Dollmancers can create Golems out of Cloth, Wood, Crystal or Plastic. Other than appearance, the material used does not affect the golem.
Bonus: Caster who specializes in Dollamancy can choose to spend Juice instead of a charge for any Dollamancy item they have created and equipped. Juice cost is 1/2 the cost required in the item creation. Caster can also create Rainments, allowing them to change their (or other units') clothing each turn.

    Craft Cloak Allows caster to create one of three different types of cloak: Negate Fire, Negate Attack/Strike, Negate Hiya/Hoboken. Each cloak has 1 charge. (8 Juice)
    [Requires Craft Cloak] Craft Lesser Golem (1 AP) - Allows caster to create Lesser Golem (treat as Warrior with 1 AP and Construct special). (16 Juice)
    [Requires Craft Cloak] Enhance Weapon (1 AP) - Allows caster to enchant a weapon so that it grants a +2 Enchantment Combat Bonus. Each Roll modified by the weapon consumes 1 charge. The weapon reverts to a normal weapon when all charges are consumed. (4 Juice / Charge)
    [Requires Enhance Weapon] Enhance Armor (1 AP) - Allows caster to enchant armor so that it grats a +2 Enchantment Defense Bonus. Each combat Roll made against the caster (that doesn't ignore defense) consumes 1 charge. The armor reverts to a normal armor when all charges are consumed. (4 Juice / Charge)
    [Requires Enhance Weapon] Craft Blaster (1 AP) - Allows caster to create a Bracer that grants Hoboken with a limited number of charges to the wearer. (6 Juice / charge)
    [Requires Craft Lesser Cloth Golem] Repair Golem (1 AP) - Allows caster to partially or fully repair a damaged Golem. The caster can control exactly how much is repaired. (1 Juice / 4 Hits repaired)
    [Requires Repair Golem] Craft Golem (1 AP) - Allows caster to create Golem (treat as Level 2 Warrior with the Construct specials). (32 Juice)
    [Requires Repair Golem] Wargamer (1 AP) - All Constructs created by this caster and stacked with this caster gain +1 Combat / +1 Defense for each level this caster has.
    [Requires Craft Golem] Craft Greater Golem (1 AP) - Aullows caster to create Greater Golem (treat as Level 3 Warrior or Spearman with the Seige(1) and Construct specials). (48 Juice)
    [Requires Craft Golem, Level 8] Craft Golem Mount (1 AP) - Allows caster to create Golem Mount (treat as Level 2 Spearman with the Heavy*, Mount and Construct specials). (64 Juice)
    [Requires Craft Blaster, Level 8] Craft Item (1 AP) - Allows the caster to create custom permanent magic items. (Variable Juice required, based on item)
* Heavy is a free special, and does not consume any AP the unit is otherwise entitled to.


Status Effects
Spoiler: show
Immobilized: Immobilized units lose any delayed Moves, and do not regain their Move each phase while Immobilized. Immobilized units defense cannot receive bonuses to their Defense, and receive a -2 Immobilization Penalty while Immobilized.
Incapacitated: Incapacitated units lose any delayed Moves and Actions, and do not regain their Move and Action each phase while incapacitated. Incapacitated units have a 0 Defense, which cannot be modified. Wards and Negation effects still work normally on incapacitated units.
Stun: Stunned units lose their next Move and Action. If unit is currently delaying a Move and/or an Action, unit loses those instead. (So a unit delaying an action when stunned loses their current action and their next Move, but can use an Action on their next Phase.) Constructs and Uncroaked are immune to Stun.
Calm: Unit automatically delays their Action, although they can still Move. Any attack against a Calm unit breaks the Calm and allows them to immediately respond, even if the attack has no effect or is negated. Any adjacent unit can awaken a Calm unit by spending an Action. Unless otherwise noted, Calm targets that are not Constructs or Uncroaked will surrender if all units on their side are Calm, Incapacitated, or croaked.
Stacked: A unit can only belong to 1 stack at a time. A stack is limited to 8 units.


Situational Modifiers
Spoiler: show
Elevation : Unit who are at a higher elevation than their opponents receive a +4 Elevation Defense Bonus, and cannot be targeted by Attack or Strike actions. Flying, tower and castle walls grant elevation against ground units, and flying grants elevation against castle wall units. Flying units and units in Towers are considered to be at equal elevation.
Cover : If there is a Unit or Terrain (the 'Cover') that is adjacent to you, and between you and an attacker who has RLOS on you (i.e. a straight line drawn from you to the attacker passes through the Cover square), you receive a +4 Cover Defense bonus against any Strike or Fire action if the attacker is at the same or lower elevation as you. Only a single cover bonus is applied, no matter how much Cover is between you and a given attacker.
Movement: Units that enter a square that is adjacent to an occupied enemy square must end their move, if both units are at the same elevation.


Carrying
Spoiler: show
Picking up a willing unit or a body (corpse or incapacitated unit) is an action, and ends the lifter's move.
Heavy units can carry a single non-heavy unit or body. A carried unit receives a -2 Combat / -4 Defense penalty, but may otherwise cast or act normally.
Heavy units carrying another unit cannot take an action while carrying the unit, and receive a 1/3 movement penalty.
Two heavy units can carry a single heavy unit. The carrying units must remain adjacent for the entire path that they carry the unit.
Units carrying a body can choose to receive a +4 cover bonus from the body.

A non-heavy unit can drag a non-heavy unit or body. A dragged unit has a 0 defense and cannot act.
Regular units dragging another unit cannot take an action while dragging the unit, and receive a 1/2 movement penalty.
Two regular units can drag a single heavy unit. The dragging units must remain adjacent for the entire path that they drag the unit.

Units that are carried may not move on their own for the remainder of the round, but can be dropped at will and can move on their own on the following round.


Combat Sequence
Spoiler: show
At the beginning of combat, if the combat spans hexes all attackers begin behind a hex boundary. Attacks and spells cannot cross the hex boundary. Every time the Hex Boundary is crossed, the unit loses one Overland Hex Move.

Each round consists of Phases. The total number of phases in a round is equal to the highest base Combat score of any unit on both sides +1. Each unit in a round can Move once and Act once. If a Unit is going to Move, it must do so before it Acts. Anything that a unit wants to do (including Attack, Strike, Fire, casting spells, using potions or scrolls, performing a Combat Maneuver, picking up a body, etc.) uses up its Action for the round unless otherwise noted.

Start of Round actions (occur before any phases) : All attack modifiers are applied. Stacks can be redefined as a free action.

Units act on the Phase that corresponds to their base Combat score. All actions that occur on the same phase resolve simultaneously. If a unit wants to take an action that is conditional based on the outcome of a certain phase, it must act on the next phase.

A unit's move drops to 0 if it moves into a square that is adjacent to an enemy unit (unless otherwise noted : see Dodge and Agile), or when the unit takes its Action. A unit's Move resets at the start of its next normal phase, as defined by its base combat score.

A unit can choose to completely delay its Move and/or Action until the next round. If it does so, it goes on phase (MaxCombat +1), where MaxCombat is the highest combat score that would normally act. All units that delay their Move and/or Action until the next round start on the same phase.

When resolving simultaneous actions during the same phase, all Attacks resolve before any moves. Opposing units who attempt to move simultaneously into the same square are resolved in the same way as a Bull-Rush (see below), but this does not cost either unit their Action.


Special Combat Maneuvers
Spoiler: show
Each Maneuver listed below consumes the unit's Action for the round.
Bull Rush: A unit can attempt to enter a square (or squares) that another unit (or units) are occupying. Each unit rolls 2d6 (+1d6 if unit is Heavy; +1d6 for each square the unit occupies; also see Dodging). If the Bull-Rushing unit's roll beats all other rolls, the unit occupies the square, and other units are pushed back 1 square, moving to an adjacent open space. Other allied units are moved to make room for the displaced units if there are no open spaces. If there are no valid squares for a displaced unit to move to, the Bull-Rush fails.

Dodge: A unit gains a (+4 Base, +2 / Level) Dodge Defense Bonus, until the start of their next Action. (This allows a Dodge bonus to continue to be in effect if a unit delays its action.) Units that are Dodging do not cause enemy units to lose their move if those units move into an square adjacent to the Dodging unit. Dodging units automatically lose if Bull-Rushed.


Specials
Spoiler: show
Construct: Unit is immune to Stun, Healmancy and Turning.
Uncroaked: Unit is immune to Stun, Healmancy and Turning. Each turn, unit suffers Normal Decay (-1 Combat, -1 Defense, -2 Hits) unless otherwise prevented. Every 3rd turn, unit also suffers Extended Decay (-1 Combat, -1 Defense, -3 Hits), which cannot be prevented.
Skeletal: Unit is immune to Stun, Healmancy and Turning. Each turn, unit suffers Normal Decay (-1 Combat, -1 Defense, -2 Hits) unless otherwise prevented. Every 3rd turn, unit also suffers Extended Decay (-1 Combat, -1 Defense, -3 Hits), which cannot be prevented. Unit gains +6 Defense vs. Fire Attacks.
Mount: Unit can carry another non-Heavy unit. All normal Attack, Strike, and Fire actions directed at the mounted unit strike the Mount instead. The mount and rider are considered to be Adjacent to each other, and all units that are Adjacent to the mount are also considered Adjacent to the rider. Dismounting: Any enemy unit adjacent to a mounted unit can choose to make a dismounting action. Attacker rolls 2d6, +1d6 for each additional enemy unit aiding in the dismount. If this number exceeds the Mount's modified defense, the Mounted unit is dismounted. Dodging: If a mount is Dodging, the rider is also considered to be Dodging.
Siege(X): Unit does Xd6 structural damage to a wall, door, tower, or other structure. Attack ignores structure's defense.
Digging(X): Unit does Xd6 structural damage to a wall, door, tower, or other structure. Attack ignores structure's defense. Unit can create a tunnel X squares long through dirt each round. Each square must be adjacent in a cardinal direction (N/E/S/W) to a previous square; diagonal moves are not allowed when digging.
Agile: Unit does not lose it's move when it enters a square that is adjacent to an enemy. Units with Agile cannot bull-rush a square, but can still be Bull-Rushed.


Beastiary
Spoiler: show
Fire Flower : [6 Combat / 2 Defense / 10 Hits / Fire. 0 Move, 0 Overland Move.]

I'm not seeing it stated anywhere how much Juice casters begin with. I'm assuming it's 8 because that's what they gain with each level, but you should prolly state it somewhere.

Edit: Nevermind...Dollamancers have (as far as I can tell) no offensive capability at level 1, so I have no idea how I'd survive or gain XP from combat to reach level 2.
Actually, that's a critique I have. This makes it seem pretty darn hard for Dollamancers to reach level 2, since they can't craft units yet, and they don't have an offensive spell/attack besides "I hit it with my sword, and probably die when they counter-attack"

Don't all casters have some kind of basic attack though? A simple hoboken or something to do damage at short range with.

Good catch - when I "simplified" the character creation process, I left out Fire and Juice from the Caster's section. All casters get Fire, just like Archers.

All players split XP evenly, so it's assumed that the caster would be in a group of units to protect him, and that they would all level at approx. the same time, assuming they started with equal XP.

Oooooh ok cool, well then in that case I would actually like to ask that you roll for that small chance that Vinny Starcall is actually a Dollamancer, if that's ok. And if the roll fails, or you just don;t want more casters, I'm just as happy to stay a (Leadership) Archer.

Just a suggestion but could the 8th level not be changed to allow attacks against an adjacent target (which could also be the 3rd attack against the same opponent under the same rule). Just thinking it would allow warriors a bit more flexibility like the spearman has been given extra flexibility at 8th

How about adding something like this instead :
Whirlwind: At 8th level, a unit with Attack that kills an adjacent opponent can make an additional Attack against a new adjacent opponent. Kills made by the additional attack can trigger additional Whirlwind attacks.

So, you get up to three swings on your first target. If he drops, you get a free swing on anyone else next to you, and if they're weak enough, you can start a chain (but you may lose your Rage or Fury attacks, since your original target is now gone, if you kill them on the 1st or 2nd blow). Thoughts?

Pretty much the dnd Cleave feat then. The main flaw that usually has is it's based on just how easily an enemy will drop under any given attack. It's great if you're powerful and standing amid a group of low-level weak units, but if not then it's the kind of skill you'll put to use sometimes but not often enough to make it worthwhile.

Though, if I've just now read it right, you're saying this would be an additional skill a lvl 8 warrior gets alongside fury, not instead of fury. That being the case, it could be considered a balancer, it might even be a little bit much. I can't accurately guess without a) being in a combat scenario myself (which is soon yay!) and b) seeing a lvl 8 warrior in action and finding out if he even needs an additional ability or 3 attacks on a single target are more than enough. Considering the highest lvl characters are lvl 4, I don't think this is a matter that we should worry ourselves over right now.

Yeah, plus the additional feats that allow you to keep going, all bundled up in one.

Lord of Monies wrote:That being the case, it could be considered a balancer, it might even be a little bit much.
Since level 8s are going to be pretty rare to begin with, I'm ok with it being a *little* overbalanced. Plus, a one-two Shockamancer/Warrior combo (shock softens, Warrior cleaves) seems like a cool use of the power. Due to the nature of movement (you're stopped when you enter a square adjacent to an enemy), it's not likely that a solo warrior could position himself among 8 weak targets. 3-5 would probably be the upper limit under most circumstances.

Yeah, I guess that's fair. Combos or coincidence can help clear out the minions while the bigger threats still remain. Guess it's not as much of a game breaker as I was envisioning. Go for it then.

I have a clarification question on Dollamancy. With the Lesser Golems, it is specified they only have 1 AP to spend. The higher ranks of Golems do not specify. So are they treated as standard units of that type with the full amount of starting AP, or are they treated as ones who began with only 1 and gained extra from levels?

To explain what I mean, I'm asking for example if a Greater Golem of the Warrior type would have 3 AP or 5?

Higher ranking golems are treated as standard units, and get the full AP a character of equivalent level would get.

Request For Feedback - New Rules - Healmancy

The next rules revision is still some time away (we'll playtest at least one more scenario with the current rules set), but I wanted to start getting feedback on changes I'd like to make. I'll start with a revised Healmancy. The Hits on mounts and heavy bodyguards demonstrate that hits can get much higher than the original Healmancy was created to deal with, and potions needed a bit more work. Wards and Healing scale with level now, so that new spells grant extra ability instead of just more healing/protection. Since I think that Wards should be preparation instead of in-combat, I've nerfed them a bit by requiring the target to be adjacent, so they don't act like permanent HP Buffs. Now that Status effects are more common, I've given the Healmancer the ability to remove them at range and protect against them. Finally, since Healers don't always have to use their abilities to help, I've added some offense into the mix, but based it on the Caster's level and the target's health instead of the Caster's Combat score. Let me know what you think.

Once these rules go into effect, Triage and Junetta will be able to reselect spell choices but stats will remain the same.

Healmancy
Wards last until all granted damage has been absorbed. Only 1 Ward can be in effect on a target at a time. If target receives a ward when a ward is already in place, target chooses which ward remains.
Bonus: Caster who specializes in Healmancy can create a Potion for any single-target healing or warding Healmancy spell they know. Potions cost 8x the spell's casting cost in Juice. This cost can be paid for over multiple turns.

Revitalize - Heal up to (8 * Caster Level) Hits to 1 target (1 Juice / 8 Hits)
[Requires Revitalize] Remove Status (1 AP) - Removes a single Negative Status Effect of Caster's choice on 1 Target (5 Juice)
[Requires Revitalize] Revitalize Group (1 AP) - Heal up to (4 * Caster Level) Hits to each of up to 3 adjacent targets (1 Juice / 8 Hits plus 2 Juice / Target)
[Requries Revitalize] Burnout (1 AP) - Caster reduces their current and maximum Hits by gaining a -1 Hit Burnout modifier and immediately gains 4 Juice. Caster can exceed their normal maximum Juice. Burnout modifiers last until the start of the next turn. Burnout does not require an action to use. Juice gained from Burnout must be immediately applied to a spell, and cannot be used for potion creation.
[Requires Revitalize] Damage Ward (1 AP) - Absorbs up to (4 * Caster Level) damage on 1 Adjacent target. (1 Juice / 4 Hits)
[Requires Revitalize] Malpractice (1 AP) - Inflicts (d6 * Caster Level) Hits to 1 Wounded Target. Damage ignores defense. (1 Juice / d6 inflicted)
[Requires Revitalize Group] Reset (1 AP) - Completely heal a single target and remove all Negative Status Effects. (10 Juice)
[Requires Malpractice] To The Pain (1 AP) - Stuns 1 Wounded Target for 2 Rounds. (6 Juice)
[Requires Damage Ward] Shatter Ward (1 AP) - Completely removes a Ward from a single target. (3 Juice)
[Requires Reset] Mass Revitalize (1 AP) - Heal up to 4 * Caster Level Hits to each of any number of targets in the hex. (1 Juice / 8 Hits plus 2 Juice / Target)
[Requires Damage Ward, Remove Status] Status Ward (1 AP) - Negates 1 Negative Status Effect per 2 caster levels on 1 Adjacent target. (4 Juice / Status Effect)
[Requires Status Ward] Hardened Ward (1 AP) - Absorbs up to 4 * Caster Level Damage on 1 Adjacent target. While warded, target is immune to Negative Status Effects. (16 Juice + 1 Juice / 4 Hits)
[Requires Mass Revitalize] Reset Hex (1 AP) - Completely heal and remove all Negative Status Effects from any selected units on the caster’s side. (8 Juice / Target)
[Requires To The Pain] Euthanasia (1 AP) - Kills 1 Wounded Target that has less than half their total Hits remaining. (1 Juice / 2 Remaining Hits)

Request For Feedback - New Rules - Dollamancy

Dollamancy
All Accessories are created in the Dollamancer's square.
Bonus: Caster who specializes in Dollamancy can choose to spend Juice instead of a charge for any Dollamancy Accessory they have created and equipped. Juice cost is 1/2 the cost required for 1 charge in the item creation. Caster can also create Rainments, allowing them to change their (or other units') clothing each turn.

Craft Minor Accessory - Allows caster to create a standard minor Accessory (see below).
[Requires Craft Minor Accessory, Level 4] Craft Accessory (1 AP) - Allows caster to create a regular Accessory (see below). Caster also gains a custom Minor Accessory that they can create.
[Requires Craft Accessory, Level 8] Craft Major Accessory (1 AP) - Allows caster to create a major Accessory (see below). Caster also gains a custom Accessory that they can create.
[Requires Craft Minor Item] Craft Lesser Golem (1 AP) - Allows caster to create Lesser Golem (treat as Warrior with 1 AP and Construct special). (16 Juice)
[Requires Craft Lesser Golem] Repair Golem (0.5 AP) - Allows caster to partially or fully repair a damaged Golem. The caster can control exactly how much is repaired. (1 Juice / 4 Hits repaired)
[Requires Craft Lesser Golem] War-Gamer (0.5 AP) - All Constructs created by this caster and stacked with this caster gain +1 Combat / +1 Defense for each level this caster has.
[Requires Craft Lesser Golem, Level 4] Craft Golem (1 AP) - Allows caster to create Golem (treat as Level 2 Warrior with the Construct specials). (32 Juice)
[Requires Craft Golem] Craft Greater Golem (1 AP) - Allows caster to create Greater Golem (treat as Level 3 Warrior or Spearman with the Construct special). (48 Juice)
[Requires Craft Greater Golem] Craft Golem Mount (1 AP) - Allows caster to create Golem Mount (treat as Level 2 Warrior or Spearman with the Heavy*, Mount and Construct specials). (64 Juice)

Accessories are items that are have a limited number of charges or uses. If the item possesses charges, the item vanishes when the last charge is consumed and the effect that the item grants expires. If the effect has a duration, the item must be worn until the duration expires. Removing it prior to that will cancel the effect, and if the item has no more charges remaining, it will vanish immediately. If the item has uses, the number of uses are restored to full at the beginning of the side’s Turn. All accessories must be equipped to be used. Equipping any item requires 1 Action.

Minor Accessories
    Cloak : Negate Fire (1 Charge) (8 Juice)
    Cloak : Negate Attack/Strike (1 Charge) (8 Juice)

Dollamancy looks FANTASTIC. The different classes of items are good and seem balanced, and I also like the fact that Repair and Wargamer were made 0.5 AP, cus that seems more appropriate.
I'd kinda like to see the old items as well, specifically the items that boosted the wielder's Combat/Defense for charges.

I've only skimmed over the proposed rules, so I haven't been able to analyse things too in depth yet. I like the additional spells quite a lot - bravo! However, what stands out at the moment is that juice costs look like they might be substantially higher than I'd anticipated. I might want to re-allocate points towards more juice. :P

Also, I'm not entirely sure if juice costs are properly balanced. Is it intentional, for example, for Reset Hex to be cheaper than Reset?

Finally, Shatter Ward doesn't have a juice cost.
