Background[edit | edit source]

Derdriu is more cautious and ready to attack than most, usually concerned with betrayal from anyone but her mate, Ro'Ech. Her family was ambushed and murdered by a previously friendly tribe, leaving her with lifelong mistrust.

Active Ability: Poison Tipped[edit | edit source]

The Horseborn Cantref uses a javelin tipped with a deadly poison to make sure her enemy doesn't forget her after the initial sting of her attack passes. The ill target becomes unable to secure their own ground and units can move through him/her.

Poisons like this are often used against high Strength enemies to wear them down over time or on a large unit that is blocking paths to other areas of the board.

The doses do not stack together, but a second dose will serve to refresh the damage over time and keep the target afflicted.

Rank 1: 1 Strength damage per Round, for 3 Rounds

Rank 2: 2 Strength damage per Round, for 3 Rounds

Rank 3: 3 Strength damage per Round, for 3 Rounds
