Sir Lucan (non-official Knight) Fri, 20 January 2006 00:08
Hi,

After reading some threads, i noticed that there are some SOC fans that would like to have some kind of expansion, or at least some new Knights.

I'm writing my first post here, to share with everyone the coat of arms of:

Lucan the Butler


"Lucan was better known as Lucan the Butler (other says that Bedivere was the butler). Lucan was the wine-steward in Chretien de Troyes' Erec and Enide. Lucan was the brother of Bedivere the Cupbearer. Lucan was cousin to Girflet, son of Do (Doon) of Carduel.

In La Mort le Roi Artu (Vulgate Cycle), Lucan was one of the two surviving knights of King Arthur in the war against Mordred. However, Lucan died, when the mortally wounded king crushed him in an embrace."

in "Timeless Myths"


I've created the Coat of Arms based on Sir Bedivere and in a Knight of The Round Table Legend.

The picture of the Knight is from a Dol Amroth Knight from The Lord of The Rings (Sorry, but i had to "steal" it somewere!)

I'm also working in an expansion to my own SOC. When it's tested, i will share it with the comunity.

That's why this game is so fantastic, there are so many possibilities to expand.

Great game! Congratulations Serge Laget and Bruno Cathala.

Hi Sir Lucan,

I really like your idea of "Lucan the Butler"! New knights can bring a lot of fun and new tactics to this great game.

Nevertheless, I believe that the special powers of Sir Lucan are too strong. The ability to add +1 to every combat he participates is already very valuable. Such an advantage you get otherwise only if you win Excalibur.

The possibility to move to another quest after all heroic actions is even more powerful. Only Sir Tristan may move for free till now and this only if he has been in Camelot. So Sir Lucan would be much, much stronger than Sir Tristan.

Both talents create together really a super-knight, who is supirior to all others in the game. I even think that he displaces the balance of the game in favour of the knights.

Anyway, your idea is very interesting, only the special power should be weakened.

By the way, a very nice coat of arms! Smile

Yes, in deed the powers together would make Sir Lucan too strong.

When i posted his Coat of Arms, Sir Lucan was still to be tested, so, after start playing with him, we choosed not to play with the +1 power.

Here's the final Coat of arms for Sir Lucan:

Yes, I think this is better. Sir Lucan is still a powerful knight and probably no one will want to play with Sir Tristan any more, because Lucan's special power is the stronger version of the same ability.

Perhaps there should be something negative when using this special power in order to weaken it, e. g. "After all Heroic actions, move to any Quest. This does not count as Heroic action. Discard one white card from your hand."

Just a suggestion... Rolling Eyes
