Manticore Rider! The Gryphon Rider counterpart!

Post by DoomsdayDragonfire » Mon Mar 06, 2017 4:50 am

For those who don't know what the manticore is, it is a...

"legendary creature similar to the Egyptian sphinx. It has the body of a red lion, a human head with three rows of sharp teeth (like a shark), sometimes bat-like wings, and a trumpet-like voice. Other aspects of the creature vary from story to story. It may be horned, winged, or both. The tail is that of either a dragon or a scorpion, and it may shoot venomous spines to either paralyze or kill its victims. It devours its prey whole and leaves no clothes, bones, or possessions of the prey behind."

I currently think it would be an awesome add to undead air arsenal!
Stay Awesome!

So it would be like an undead version of the drake knight?

Almost that, but more likely to Gryphon Rider role (not released yet... But you can take a look on him on that unit list provided by Alexander82)

No idea, it could fit both human and undead classes, but since humans would get the gryphon soon, i think it could fit on undead race

Oh i see it, actualy got inspired by that also, but since chimeras don't fly...

I don't think chimeras would fit with elves, unless there was some sort of elf alchemist with power to fuse or summon them... For elves i think the Pegasus Rider would fit better that role.

*Also when i was looking the proposals... why i don't saw anyone that have proposed wyvern riders for the Orcs???*

For elves, I'd actually go with eagle or dragon riders, from the current eagles and dragons.

Or humans if make non flying version.
Is living creature so not sure fit the undead
Thy gave me a sword to pierce a lie,
Serrated edge for the deamon inside
A moment I'm torn between two tides,
But all I need, I bear inside

Beastclan is not a finished faction yet, but there are many creatures that would fill that role on that side for them, like those eagle people (that i forget the name)... And its not a question of being a livingbeing or not, it's mostly classified with being a Netherworld/Otherworld creatures... But back to topic. Humans already have Gryphon rider, and for elves they might have chimera (that would fit undeads aswell, but who knows, maybe a crazy druid mave mixed the wrong potions again :lol: ), there isn't plans for anything alike to orcs, maybe that wyvern rider they where talking. But the idea was made for the first 4 factions released at that moment, to create a unit to do the same role as gryphon rider for humans. Something good on Air-Air battles.

Simple! one unit that is cheaper than the high end troops and still reliable to use.

Here the stats:

Cost: 5-6
Hp: 36
Attack power: 15
Range 1
Armor: 3
Pierce armor: 3
Speed: 8
sight: 10
Action/turn: 1
Spell resistance: 100%
Builder: Mansion
Bonus against other flying units, bonus against mounted, bonus against dragons.
Abilities: Scorpion Tail - Deals poison damage up to 2 range, and due it's particular venom, Blood/Meat units became paralized for 2 turns (does not prevent the unit from counterattacking closer units while affected) - Cooldown 3 turns.

WAIT-wait-wait!
Manticores themself are much more powerful units than gryphons.
They are also much less tamable for riding.

Who said undeads need to tame them? They just summon them and they obey :lol: And stats can be changed anytime that was just one made in comparisson to Gryphons

for undeads?!
NOnonononono.
in greek myphology manticore is extremly powerful creature nd definately living one.
Also undeads can't "summon" living units - only other undeads and demons (lesser ones because we have a discussion about demons as separate race)

i want to see manticores (without riders) as part of beastclans.
