I just hope this place ain't out in Cali. God
knows nobody could afford then, and 6MMM is
already pretty expensive. That's what, US
Eh, anyway, this is actually a very nifty place
to live. Thing is, the location slots for most
warbands is already pretty full. You got
Pearlthorn Castle and Arch of Triumph for
movement in just about anything with Valor, and
you have Heartsblood Temple for that bit of
extra spawn in anything with Passion. Compared
to such tactical advantages, a bit of extra
power for one cell really... eh.
Don't get me wrong, please. Cottage is an
excellent location, but it's very limited in how
it can help you. Yeah, you could put him in a
pretty highly contested cell, like the center
one or whatever, but it'll only work for that
one cell. You'll probably get a pretty hefty
boost even if you only have one or two unengaged
Scissors hanging back or whatever, but after
that... what then? Odds are, you'll just get
shunted out with a Scare or a Lure or some such
thing and then nobody will be around to deal
with your opponent. Or they could just hand that
cell to you and focus elsewhere. Or they could
start purposely engaging other creatures to shut
the power bonus down. Or they could kill people
with warpstrike. There are plenty of ways to
deal with DHC, all of which will screw you over
Of course, if you manage to kill three or four
pieces, you definitely put things in your favor.
Of course, they just got an extra six or eight
spawn points next Spawn Phase...
Constructed: 3/5 I'd be very careful here.
Movement is king in Dreamblade, kinda like draw
power in a normal TCG like Yugioh or Magic. This
doesn't quite help enough figures to be an
auto-include in most bands, but if you playtest
it and like the results, it's certainly worth
Limited: 2/5 Any location that doesn't start
with Arch, Pearlthorn, or Heartsblood, I skip.
At least for the time being of course.
