Providing him the 25% fire resistance simply provides a reason for the comment of "douser of all fires"... whether or not the title is true doesn't matter.

For example... I could create a human pretender after a relative and provide the title "greatest of all fighters", but it would also seem out of place if the strength and attack variables were as normal as any other human commander.
You are probably right, but I don't like those changes. I might change the description at some point, perhaps to make God Spider's deeds too Munchausen for it to be clear that they are just exaggerations and stories.

Do you think the cost is too low? He's so flexible, I'd almost bump him up to 50. That's just my gut sense, without referring to charts. But the other Pretenders I can think of in the 30-35 range (Enchantress, for example) are much more limited in terms of power.

I based him more on the Manticore. Hmm. The Smoking Mirror of Mictlan is 60 points, F1D1B1, new paths 20 points. Less versatility but easier access to high-level blesses in any of those three, so I'd say level 1 path is about equal to being [pathcost] points more expensive. So he's 20 points for a Jaguar form, and more expensive new paths than other humans.

The spider form is worth at least the 30 points, and the sneakiness might also be. I must agree, he is currently a too cheap. Any ideas on a new price? Would 50 points be enough? Or 50 points and dominion 2?
