    Don't underestimate the power of 2 health minions.

    Those 4 ants require 8 hits. Imagine having 8 Rat Warriors on the table.

    Agreed. The playtesting is showing I shouldn't have 2-life Common Minions.
    The night's shadow exists, not sleeping at all,
    The toil of the light is its only call,
    Behind the scenes lurking with shadowy gall,
    Its face never showing; height never too tall.

    Without a cry wherein dissent finds respite,
    The multitudes safer in the billowing light,
    More likely than not to strike evil at night,
    Then silently vanishing to be out of sight.

    I really like the idea of ants! So I'm going to chime in this thread even though it's been a while since the last post. I think in order to really differentiate them from roaches, their weenie/swarming characteristics should be highlighted. I would consider giving them 1 meelee and 0 shield (or 2 melee and 0 shield for red ants), and increasing their swarming capabilities. Thematically, I think of ants as selfless and not really interested in blocking attacks (nor as heavily armored as a roach, which has 1 shield), bur rather just piling onto their enemy to attack them. Plus 0 shields makes it a lot less tedious to play against a big swarm of ants. Much less dice-rolling, and the surge wheel won't fill up instantly.

    Thank you, breegull. I'm a little late responding as well (XD) but thank you for the suggestion.

    I'm bumping this because I just need a beta-reader to just bounce a little something off of (and make sure I didn't horribly skew personalities with my writing); if you can help and you've already finished Mice and Mystics: Sorrow and Remembrance, send me a PM. Thanks in advance.
