    Default The Book of Lun

    The Book of Lun
    Champion of the Deep Dwarves - Master Set




    Bio: The patriarch of Clan Lun leads the most powerful of all the Stone Clans. Among his arsenal of gems is the heirloom known as the Gem of Calling. There are those who claim Clan Lun’s power comes from that gem, and its ability to magically transport friends and foes. There are also those who believe the gem is actually a fragment of a Summoning Stone, hence its similar nature to those rarest of artifacts.


    Rulings and Clarifications
    Q: Can Gem of Calling target my units and my opponent's?
    A: Yes. You can only use the ability once per turn, but it can be any Common Unit within 4 spaces of Lun.

    Compare to Sprog and Kynder, I think Lun will be the most valuable Champion for this faction. Although he may not lost very long, it allows DD players to get a nearby unit adjacent to Lun and then surround the opponent's unit to get at least 4 (Lun and Miner) to 5 (Lun and Gem Mage) attack value.

    Just musing. I think Vermins will be good complements to both Lun and Kynder's abilities. Lun can call for a Vermin next to his side and then move them near to a space with crowded units and Kynder can simply push them forward two spaces into strategic position.

    The more I think about it, the more I feel Lun here is actually "the" Champ of DD, not Kynder which are design for defensive maneuver more. Sprog are just fun unit but he likely won't win you any game

    Once you get him out, just form a fortress around him and suck in your opp's unit one by one for the execution... once you pick off enough of their unit, then advance forward for the kill. That 4 spaces of suckage is really huge

    Ah yes! I forgot Lun's can also target at the opponent's commons. This is great. DD can form a V shape formation with a centre space for Lun's to call the opponent's common unit and then 'gang bang' the unit from three sides (which may be an overkill for 1 Life common). (See below)

    Miner | Opp's Unit | Gem Mage
    Scholar | Lun | Empty


    Basically, the other units act at insurance just in case Lun's fail on his 3 dice roll. However, I believe Lun will only need to have one supporting unit rather than two. In addition, if Lun is supported by a Scholar, his attack value will be raised to 4!!! This is powerful for a cost 4 Champion.

    Thanks for the idea, Saum. Your idea is better than calling on my own commons

    You're taking a gamble is bringing in one of your opponents units. There's the possibility that you don't kill you're opponents unit and then they could kill Lun. Not to say that Lun couldn't be usefull, he definitely could I'm just saying

    What would be better is if you called a common that was between the opponent summoner and one of your champs...

    true but chance are you will wipe the floor on their common when you suck them into your fortress, with around like 6-7 combine attack value and all

    Lun is really powerful, so much possibility, suck them through walls, or into one, move your own unit into battle... etc

    I am at lost here, any faction will be afraid of having their common pull out and pretty much kill in one turn. I don't see why only vg be the only "it", every faction will not be prepare for having their unit execute turn by turn
