Does Pegasus Sacrifice when Icarus Strikes?

Post by Glas Masv » Wed Oct 18, 2017 8:37 pm

If a wizard with windwalker jumps from a hex adjacent to a Pegasus does the Pegasus sacrifice if the wizard is hit by Icarus :?: What if the landing hex is adjacent to a Pegasus; would that Pegasus sacrifice :?:

I'm almost certain that pegasus never sacrifices for icarus strikes. This is because the creature takes the hit in the air, rather than adjacent to the pegasus.

Ty. Is the air considered one space, or many hexes in air? Or is it a temporary air interim?

Internally, there is no airspace in Chaos Reborn: flying creatures move from hex to hex just like walking creatures (but they ignore obstacles where necessary, and you see a different animation).
It was difficult to decide what was most intuitive for pegasus/ icarus-death. Does the player expect a sacrifice if the victim takes off next to a pegasus, or if it lands next to a pegasus, or both? Snapshot went with neither, for the reasons above:)
It was similarly difficult to come up with intuitive Line of Sight rules, so again, there aren't any: Icarus has homing missiles:)
