In every generation, there is a chosen one. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer.
Welcome to the first look at the Vs System 2PCG: The Buffy Battles!
In the iconic TV show Buffy and her brave band of friends solved mysteries and saved the world time and again. But before we take a look at the heroic Scoobies, let’s take a look at the most common type of monster they faced: the vampire.
Vampire is a new keyword power found throughout the set which allows a character to gain vitality by KOing enemies. But what exactly is a vitality counter?
A vitality counter is essentially the opposite of a wound counter. It gives a character +1 and remains on the character while the character is stunned. However, if a character has both a wound counter and vitality counter, they cancel out – remove one of each until the character only has one type.
Example: A character has 2 vitality counters. It gets stunned and gains a wound. You’ll now remove one vitality counter and one wound counter. It now has 1 vitality counter left.
If able to feed often enough a Vampire will have an unnaturally long life. But some Vampires can tap into their vitality in other ways.
Keep in mind for a character to “survive” a combat that means it doesn’t get stunned. Which isn’t so easy to do, especially for low DEF characters. Fortunately, Vampires don’t always play fair.
On the other hand some enemies aren’t so easy to KO. Well unless you’re Buffy’s boyfriend-turned-killer:
Finally let’s take a look at the King of Vampires himself.
And remember, when you’re an immortal being, time is always on your side…
We hope you enjoyed today’s preview. Come back next time for a look at the woman who will stand alone (and with friends) against these bad guys.
