Dungeon Dice Masters Talk
Dungeon Dice Monster of the Week: Orgoth the Relentless
by TheDungeonMaster
05.02.05  

 Effect:

Magic x3: This monster permanently adds an additional 10 Attack Power points to itself for every 3 Magic Crests spent.

HP: 50/ATK: 30/ DEF: 20.

Ok, lets see here… this guy is one of my personal favorites. He is a Level 4 summon, good effect, and good points. Like in the show, he is one of Duke’s favorite and strongest, but enough about that, lets move onto the review. When you summon him into the Dungeon, he is a major monster destroyer. But, not all things are without his flaws. His defense is a MAJOR let down. There are other guys who can help with this, but what if there not on the field? There ya go; he’s like gone. Still, if you just use his brute force, then he is good. There is something good with him. Just destroy all your opponents big monster first, summon this guy, and then use him to destroy all his little monsters with him. But… there is one monster who is weak, but its harmful. Want to guess who it is? … … … …

Time’s up. The monster: Blast Lizard. Make sure HE is gone before you summon him as well. Duh.

Ratings:

Traditional: 4/5 (Blast Lizard. Point blank).

Advanced: 3.5/5 (Blast Lizard AND it’s a bigger Dungeon ahead of you. More chances for Mr. Lizard AND more powerful monsters).

Otaku:

Name: Orgoth the Relentless
Set:
Series 3 (Ultimate Wrath)
ID:
B3-02
Level:
4
Tribe:
Warrior
Movement Type:
Normal
HP:
50 ATK: 30 DEF: 20

Effect: (M x 3) This monster permanently adds an additional 10 Attack Power points to itself for every 3 Magic Crests spent.

Stats: Duke Devlin’s signature Monster, Orgoth the Relentless is a Level 4 Monster.  That means Orgoth must be very powerful, as he is very difficult to summon.  He is a Warrior, which means he has some support in the English game, and no natural counters (unlike Dragons).  His Movement Type is Normal, so he can’t touch Flying Monsters, and as such one could stand between him and his intended… prey, blocking his efforts.  Since he lacks the Tunnel ability, should he actually face an opponent with a DEF that can stop him, he’ll have to either back off or save up to use his effect…

Orgoth’s Hp is 50, topped only by BEUD.  His base attack is only 30, which is roughly middle of the pack.  His DEF is even worse at 20, though surprising few Monsters surpass it.  DEF tends to be the least useful of these three bottom stats anyway: you’re better off focusing on offense in this game.  Still, as a whole, these stats are a tad low for a big Level 4 Monster.  Let’s hope the effect can offset them…

Effect: For 3 Magic Crests, you can raise Orgoth’s ATK by 10.  Unlike most some effects, this states the increase is permanent.  This is a pretty solid effect: not great (at least on its own), but definitely useful: 6 Magic crests allow you to tie a BEUD, the creature with the highest base ATK in the English game.

Uses and

Combinations: This bad boy needs to be the center of his own dice pool.  Fortunately, that is very, very reasonable.  Karbonala Warrior is a Level 1 Monster that adds 10 to the ATK of all Warriors.  There are several strong Monsters of the Warrior Tribe to support you: Battle Warrior (Level 1), Knight of Twin Swords (Level 2), and Strike Ninja (Level 3) immediately spring to mind, and the latter two are from the Starter set.  I would also recommend Dark Magician Girl to provide you with ample Magic crests to pump up Orgoth, and Blast Lizard, who also feeds off Magic crests, to remove any obstacles (like Flying Monsters).

Ratings

Basic: 4/5-He’s a powerhouse here, though hard to summon.  Of course, I don’t think you are really supposed to use pieces other aside from the Starter Set here.

Advanced: 3.75/5-He’s still good when playing with the full rules, but suffers since your opponent will have more time to get something like Blast Lizard into play to make all your efforts on Orgoth wasted.

Summary

One of the three choices for a Level 4 Monster if you are running Warriors, Orgoth the Relentless lives up to his name and hard to survive once he gets going.  Of the remaining two Level 4 Warriors, only Black Luster Soldier rivals him (by having 10 more ATK and DEF points in exchange for no effect).
