Default Murdering Winter

Hello!

I have a question about the Murdering Winter. First, here is the description found on pg. 215 of the manual:

"This is a long-ranged cold attack on an enemy army in a distant province. The strength of the attack is 7 armor-negating points + 2 x the province's cold scale. This spell will never kill more
than half of an enemy army, as at least half of the army is out of camp at a given time, and this spell attacks the camp."

My question is, is the damage dealt from this attack cold damage or normal? Should I assume that because the attack is cold that the damage dealt is also cold-based?

I ask because my opponent has several troops with 100% cold resistance. The description makes me think that the damage is normal though you would think it would be cold-based.

Any help here is appreciated. Just looking for a confirmation. Thx.

I think it is cold based. Dunno for sure. But most water spells are cold, and most fire spells are fire.

I'd say it's almost certainly cold based.

Does this sort of spell work on units hiding in castles?

What about if i have a besieging army, can i use it on the castle and my units not be affected?

If i cast wolven winter in the same turn, what order are the spells processed in?

Thanks.

You can cast it on castles, it won't affect your sieging troops, and the spell order is random.

You have an equal chance of Wolven Winter being cast before Murdering Winter or after it. However, spell casting order most certainly is not random!

It is randomly either in caster ID order or reverse ID order, which is effectively random for most purposes. There are ways to abuse this, of course.

As casting 2 wolven winters and the murdering winter in between.
btw. do wolven winters stack? Can i change heat 3 to cold 3 by two wolven winters?
And another question: Is murdering winter affected by season? As being most effective in winter?

- The scales effects of spells stack.
- Nope, murdering winter is affected by scales, not the time of winter. (iirc). Of course, it is just a little bit more effective if old units get diseases/never healing wounds, on the same turn as you cast murdering winter. But that is only marginal, and not something you should ever try to use.
