See newer version below ...

UW
Undead Race

Main mechanic: units can be spawned from any location next to a Necromancer that is a valid location (I.e. GH can't be on mountains, only aquatic on water tiles, and can't have two units on one tile, etc. )

Which is a serious perk, of course.

Common thing found on units is either:
1. plague or
2. Decay
There is no way to stop either, for this race.

Some of their attacks will put decay onto enemy troops. Plague will still spread naturally to saps, making them a real thorn for saps to play against.

Overall Vision scores and mobility scores are appalling. 1-2 are most common vision scores, maybe one unit will have a 3. Top mobility I'm planning on 7-8. Getting to the point where you can build units by your enemies base will take time.

I want to go with reanimated forms of Uniwar troops for the most part. Mostly saps and khra since I'm not sure that Titans are even "alive" :p but maybe some of their tech will be used...




For other races, decay and plague can be healed as they always have.

Might go down to 50 on base infantry to really solidify the numbers thing. But for now let's say 75

I like the game mechanic.
I think that zombies of old uni-units might not be so good of an idea, since we're basically taking all the old units and giving them a cheaper cost and decay. Basically, the race should be more original (like phasers).

I don't disagree with what you're saying, more from a flavor perspective was why I went with Uniwar units as a premise. Like, what actually would rise up first.

I think it could make sense to have at least a couple original units though. Maybe one as a leader type unit ... But I'll have to think about it another time.

Definitely intrigued by the game mechanic. I can't decide how I would plan against this race....

I think a leader would be justified. What if the zombies could only spawn around leaders, since they are the only ones with vision?

Update log 2/13:

Changed several units to reflect change of not being able to spawn "anywhere"

Reduced cost of Necromancer.
Changed stats for nightmare eclipse

Reduced defense and cost for vile swarmer
Increased stats overall for spectral marauder given decay debuff presence

Increased mobility of bones of Garuda. Altered stats to make it a much more competitive anti air piece. (These may need nerfed in fact)

Changed stats for Wyrm unit extensively. Added burrow ability, which we have always wanted on a Wyrm

Changed Pinzer stats extensively.

All in all a bit update. I think this race is unique in function, poised to be competitive, and would require a lot of planning and thought given units who start with or can give the decay debuff.

As always I'm open to thoughts and thanks for reading

Undead Race v2

Main mechanic: units can be spawned from any location next to a Necromancer that is a valid location (I.e. GH can't be on mountains, only aquatic on water tiles, and can't have two units on one tile, etc. )

Which is a serious perk, of course.

Unique race ability:
1. Decay
Decay is similar to plague, but decreases affected units DEFENSE by 1 each turn, and can not be healed by any means. (Not all units are susceptible to decay). Decay does NOT spread to adjacent units like a plague.
2. Refurbished: any time the Undead kill an enemy unit during their turn, the Undead player gets 10% of the cost of that unit in credits.
3. Blood magic and Diminishing returns: the Undead player does not receive credits for owning bases or occupying cities. at the start of the game, the Undead player gets the same number of credits per turn as the average of each other player. The amount the Undead player receives per turn will diminish based upon a formula or something .. something like(total bases x credits per base / [total number of tiles / total number of players]) ... this isn't it. But something where the more credits on a bigger map, the longer it'll take to decay. But im intending them to lose roughly 10%/turn at round 15, 30, and 45. To give a sense of urgency and to balance out the refurbish ability I guess


Some of the UNDEAD Units' attacks will put decay onto enemy troops.

Overall Vision scores and mobility scores are appalling for this race. 1-2 are most common vision score. Getting to the point where you can build units by your enemies base will take time.

Thematically I am going with reanimated forms of Uniwar troops for the most part. Since those units would be recently dead, it makes sense they would be the ones resurrected. Mostly saps and khra since I'm not sure that Titans are even "alive" :p but maybe some of their tech will be used...
