Does Pegasus Sacrifice when Icarus Strikes?

Discussion and questions about the latest version of Chaos Reborn. Not for bugs, but for comments about the game play.

  • 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:)
