Default The Kindly Ones

So, the global The Kindly Ones attacks all mages that have blood magic....


Does this include Pretenders?


Also, do they attack frienly blood mages?

I suppose they do. From the description, it seems like a blood mage is a blood mage, no matter who they follow or whether or not it's a god.

It's one of those "Screw everyone equally" spells, unless of course you don't have any blood mages at all.

they actually attack anyone who hurts a virgin...

this means:

A) people casting blood magic spells
B) people who kill your virgins in battle
C) people who forge magic items with virgins
D) people who empower their blood levels

and strangely

E) people who wish for "magic power" and gain that initial level of blood magic (but not subsequent wishes, adding subsequent levels of blood magic)

Are you sure about that Wish? Its been attacking indy blood mages. They dont do any of the actions you list, unless they are constantly blood hunting?

Default Re: The Kindly Ones

I have casted the spell once during a game. I was not playing a blood nation so I am not sure if it will affect your mages.

The Kindly Ones did attack blood mages every single turn until they were finally killed by enemies. They seemed to be pretty decent assassins, but they finally died to a well equipped vanheim commander. They would attack independent of one another and randomly target blood mages as far as I could tell.

During this game I am sure I killed enemy bloodslaves on the battlefield, but the 3 kindly ones never attacked my commanders. Also, I think I remember them attacking a pretender (Not 100% sure on this).

Oh btw, I noticed they keep afflictions they receive in combat.

Default Re: The Kindly Ones

if they sacrificed any of their virgins during a battle they become a possible target. I've tested with it thoroughly, and saw them attacking bogus' comrades and the like as well.

my blood mages that did nothing with virgins never got attacked.

they are unique, so they keep whatever, just like other unique folks.

So in theory you could use them as cursed item vectors by letting them eat some cheap bloodmages? Ugly surprise for whatever is strong enough to kill them.

Now that would be intresting.....Get them to equip slave collars (by having them kill a cheap blood mage with one) and anyone who kills them gets an unpleasent suprise

If I remember properly, there are three Kindly Ones, and each one attacks different commanders -- one attacks blood mages, the other two I don't remember.
