Idle Champion Spotlight: Warduke 
Posted in Idle Champions.

“I speak with the flames and razor-sharp edges of my sword. They beat words to hell.”

No one knows what Warduke looks like under his dread helm. He never removes that helmet to reveal his face to others, only showing his piercing, red, glowing eyes. This Simril he dons that signature helmet again to take his place in the Idle Champions roster!

I. Warduke



    Warduke's services as a remorseless killer-for-hire can be easily bought. The evil swordsman isn't terribly bright, which is why he leaves the plotting and scheming to others. He just likes to hit things with his sword.

This deadly warrior is a Tanking and DPS Champion who grows more powerful the more he swings his sword, all while inverting the positional formation abilities of the other Champions. Once you have unlocked his services, you can swap Warduke with Delina in Slot 8.

STR: 19 DEX: 11 CON: 17
INT: 9 WIS: 11 CHA: 11

III. Warduke's Design

Fans of D&D will recognize Warduke from his most recent appearance in The Wild Beyond the Witchlight, working for the League of Malevolence as they try to acquire a powerful staff. But this imposing warrior has been in the D&D world for over 40 years, including appearing alongside Dungeon Master in the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon, and becoming an action figure produced in the 1980s! He's even a foe our players have already encountered in Idle Champions, so it's fun to be able to secure his services to help the Champions instead!

Warduke is A Trained Killer who relishes in battle, becoming more powerful every time he attacks or takes damage. He's often seen serving The League of Malevolence, as the odious assemblage of villains provides a convenient arrangement for achieving his goals. As a Bodyguard for the Highest Bidder he'll make sure his employers stay alive long enough to pay him, increasing the health of all Champions in the formation. However if a better offer were to come along, he would have no qualms about changing his allegiances. Those chaotic tendencies affect the rest of the Champions as well. Warduke inspires a Chaotic Inversion of positional formation abilities. This means when Champions in the formation have an ability that only affects certain slots, he will invert it so it affects the opposite slots instead! He's also Drawn to Power as his damage is increased for each positional formation ability affecting him.

This evil swordsman will work for anyone who has the coin, but Specializes in a few specific formations. If Chaos Reigns then Warduke will increase his damage for every fellow chaotic Champion in the formation. Or he can draw power from other evil Champions as if surrounded by the League of Malevolence. But if getting paid is all that matters, this Mercenary for Hire will hit harder the more gold find Champions there are! With his epic sword Nightwind in hand, Warduke is a deadly foe as he leaps forward to slash through multiple enemies. And when it's time to turn up the heat, Nightwind ignites into a Flame Tongue Sword so Warduke can deal the ultimate amount of damage possible!

IV. Warduke's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Nightwind - Warduke moves up to the closest enemy and swings his sword, dealing one hit to all nearby enemies with a melee attack.

Formation Abilities

  • A Trained Killer - Each time Warduke attacks or is damaged, he gains a Remorseless stack. Warduke increases his damage by 100% for each Remorseless stack he has, stacking additively. Stacks are reset when traveling to a new area.
  • Bodyguard for the Highest Bidder - Increase the health of all Champions by 25% of Warduke's max health.
  • Chaotic Inversion - Most positional formation abilities' targets are inverted. Affected abilities will have "(Inverted)" appended to the ability name everywhere it is used.
  • Drawn to Power - Warduke's damage is increased by 100% for each positional formation ability affecting him, stacking multiplicatively. Buffs apply to the pre-stack multiplier.

Specializations

  • Chaos Reigns - Warduke's damage is increased by 100% for each chaotic Champion in the formation, stacking multiplicatively.
  • Mercenary for Hire - Warduke's damage is increased by 300% for each gold find Champion in the formation, stacking multiplicatively.
  • League of Malevolence - Warduke's damage is increased by 500% for each evil Champion in the formation, stacking multiplicatively.

Ultimate Ability

  • Flame Tongue Sword - Warduke's sword Nightwind ignites in flames for 30 seconds. For the duration, Warduke deals an additional 1000% damage with his normal attacks and he takes half damage from all sources.

Idle Champion Spotlight: Virgil 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Storms can be beautiful displays of raw energy, or dangerous heralds of destruction. It takes someone calm, cool, and collected to harness and wield that power.

Virgil is a friendly, easy going aasimar who is happy to work together and peacefully avoid a fight. But don't be fooled by his calm demeanor, with a snap of his fan he is ready to summon a storm! He joins the rest of the Rivals of Waterdeep in the Champion roster during the Feast of the Moon!

I. Virgil

Dungeons & Dragons Virgil Brian

    With unexpected and unwelcome Celestial heritage, Virgil was always trying to get away from both his past and a disapproving family. He put his talents to work on the sea, traveling with crews who he hoped would ask nothing more than that he earn his keep by way of his magic. Eventually he grew tired of wandering and ended up in the quiet lakeside town of Caradoon, thinking he might put down roots. But that all changed when he met and fell for a kindred spirit in the form of a charming and witty Tiefling named Kent. After some over-enthusiastic handling of the local tavern's rat problem, they found themselves on the move again. Fortunately they met Selise Astorio of the Rivals of Waterdeep, and while quickly becoming entangled in the group's adventures they discovered a new family and a new home.

Virgil is a support and speed Champion who is the master of lightning speeds! He makes the attacks of adjacent Champions faster, and speeds up progress if the formation is quickly dispatching enemies. Once unlocked, Virgil and his storm sorcerer powers can be found with Tyril in Slot 10.

II. Virgil's Stats

Race: Aasimar Alignment: Neutral Good

Affiliation: Rivals of Waterdeep

STR: 9 DEX: 13 CON: 14
INT: 13 WIS: 12 CHA: 18

Slot: 10 (Tyril)


Dungeons & Dragons Virgil

III. Virgil's Design

For anyone interested in learning about Brian Gray, their website includes years of wonderful content as a writer and streamer with blogs, reviews, recipes, and more. In the TTRPG community they are well known for their performances on many streams, including as a voice over artist for Into The Mother Lands, and our own Charity One Shot celebrating the release of Disco the Baby Moonstone Dragon familiar! We're extremely excited to bring their Rivals of Waterdeep character to Idle Champions just as their 14th season has begun, and as a bonus can enjoy Virgil striving to save the multiverse in Idle Champions Presents Hunger of the Far Realm!

As a Storm Sorcerer, Virgil is all about offering lightning quick buffs, causing adjacent Champions to do more damage as well as attack faster. If enemies are being defeated quickly, he'll be impressed by the Rapid Fire and increase the chance that those creatures drop double quest items or count for double quest progress. Virgil also harnesses the energy to Weather Control, increasing Champion damage every time the weather changes. All of these buffs are intended to help keep the formation alive, but if a Champion is knocked out, Virgil has a Surprise Mood: Angry! That anger bleeds into his attacks, making his normal Magic Missiles turn red, and causing any enemy he hits to take a lot more damage! He's especially protective of his partner Kent, and since the two of them are Inseparable, where one goes the other can follow.

Virgil's mood can be seen in the color of his attacks, and changing his Specialization also changes the power he is focusing on. If his mood is Relaxed, his Magic Missile and Chain Lightning attacks turn green as he increases Storm Sorcerer's damage bonus, as well as helping Champions attack even faster. Amber colored attacks means he's Anxious, increasing the number of Magic Missiles he fires and adding a chance to stun an enemy he hits. If there are plenty of other Rivals of Waterdeep Champions in the formation he will feel Determined, and his violet attacks indicate that his Weather Control damage boost is greatly increased.

If Virgil has had enough of being attacked, the weather will change to thunder as he summons a fearsome bolt of Chain Lightning! This powerful electric discharge forks as it strikes multiple enemies, laying waste to anyone attacking the formation.

IV. Virgil's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Magic Missile - Virgil summons 3 magic missiles and fires them at random targets.

Formation Abilities

  • Weather Control - Virgil gains a Weather stack each time the weather changes when advancing to a new area or when it's changed by an ultimate attack or other ability. Virgil tracks each type of weather in a separate stack. Each stack is multiplied by 10% and then all stacks are multiplied together to get a total value which increases the damage of all Champions. Each stack caps at 500.
  • Rapid Fire - Enemies that are defeated within 2 seconds of being on screen have a 5% chance to drop double quest items or count for double quest progress for each Rivals of Waterdeep Champion in the formation, stacking additively.
  • Surprise Mood: Angry - While a Champion in the formation is knocked out, Virgil's magic missile and chain lightning attacks turn red and any enemy he hits with his base attack takes an additional 1000% damage for the next 5 seconds. If an enemy is hit again, the timer is reset but doesn't otherwise stack.
  • Inseparable - If Kent qualifies for an adventure restriction based on his tags, age, ability scores, etc., Virgil may be used as well.

Specializations

  • Mood: Relaxed - Virgil's Magic Missile and Chain Lightning attacks turn green, and he further increases Storm Sorcerer's damage boost by 100% and increases the attack cooldown reduction by a further 1 second.
  • Mood: Anxious - Virgil's Magic Missile and Chain Lightning attacks turn amber, he increases the number of Magic Missile's he fires by one, and there is a 25% chance he stuns an enemy struck by a Magic Missile for 5 seconds.
  • Mood: Determined - Virgil's Magic Missile and Chain Lightning attacks turn violet, and Virgil increases Weather Control's damage boost by 33% for each Rivals of Waterdeep Champion in the formation, stacking multiplicatively.

Ultimate Ability

  • Chain Lightning - Virgil attacks a random enemy with a bolt of lightning dealing ultimate damage. Every 0.10 seconds, the lightning bolt attacks another random enemy until 20 enemies are struck or no enemies remain. In addition, the area's weather changes to thunder.

Idle Champion Spotlight: Kent 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Exploring ancient temples can lead to astounding archaeological discoveries, but also devastating consequences. However some Champions remain confident in their fabulous capabilities rather than let the dark memories sour their levity!

Kent is a trained archeologist whose blade is as sharp as his outfits. He joins his fellow Rivals of Waterdeep Gazrick, Shaka, Selise, and D'hani in the Champion roster during Liar's Night!

I. Kent

Dungeons & Dragons Kent Eugenio

    Kent is a former archaeologist turned adventurer whose Rogue skills and powers over death were honed by spending months making his way through the temple of Talona, where the rest of his archaeological research team was killed by traps and monsters. When he finally returned home to the lakeside town of Caradoon, he was the same outgoing, flamboyant Tiefling he had always been, but now it seemed to mask a darkness that Kent has since done his best to keep hidden. Fortunately for him, he doesn't have to bear the darkness alone, because not long after his return to Caradoon, he met smart, capable, and patient Aasimar named Virgil. Together they met up with Selise from the Rivals, and joined her and the rest of the crew in Waterdeep.

Kent is a support and DPS Champion who collects soul trinkets representing the highest level boss defeated in each campaign, which he uses to buff himself and Champions in his column. In addition, he increases the effectiveness of your achievement bonuses for the adventure he is on. Once unlocked, you can find this tiefling rogue with Jarlaxle in Slot 4.

Dungeons & Dragons Kent

III. Kent's Design

Eugenio Vargas is a New York City based singer, actor, and music director who has extensive experience both on and behind the stage. With a love of performing and gaming, he's become well known in the TTRPG industry for his amazing work, including as the DM and producer for The Last Refuge podcast, the Storyteller for Into the Mother Lands, and a writer and designer on many D&D products including Fizban's Treasury of Dragons for Wizards of the Coast. He is already well known to the Idle Champions community for his work on A Familiar Quest and The Pear Passage charity one shot, so we're very excited to bring his Rivals of Waterdeep character to the game!

Kent is all about making the formation more effective by celebrating your previous achievements. As you defeat bosses across all our Campaigns, Kent collects Tokens of the Departed, and increases the damage of himself and all Champions in his column. The more powerful the boss, the higher the damage bonus! He'll also make all the Champions more powerful by adding a bit EXTRA! using your current Achievement bonus. With a wealth of experiences to draw from, Kent is an adept at attacking nearby enemies with his Rapier, and Remembering the Old Days helps makes his attacks even more effective. But this rogue doesn't have to go it alone! After Virgil's release, you'll find that the two of them are Inseparable and where one goes, the other can follow.

If the formation is filled with his fellow Rivals of Waterdeep, Kent can specialize in increasing the attack bonus of Tokens of the Departed for each of those Robust Rivals. Or he can focus on his Potent Poison to add poison damage to all of his attacks. When Kent gets serious about defeating enemies, he calls on the Wails from the Grave to change the weather to an eerie fog, and call on ghostly spirits to help Kent deal some Ultimate damage!

IV. Kent's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Rapier - Kent strikes the closest enemy with his rapier.

Formation Abilities

  • Tokens of the Departed - Kent keeps a soul trinket of the highest level boss defeated in each campaign and the best event where he was present at the bosses' defeat. Kent increases the damage of all Champions in his column (including himself) by 10% times the sum of all levels from his soul trinkets.
  • Remembering the Old Days - Each time Kent or the ghostly spirit from his Ultimate attacks, he gains a Nostalgia stack that lasts until entering a new area. Kent increases his damage by +50% for each Nostalgia stack, stacking multiplicatively and then applied multiplicatively. Buffs are applied to the post stack value, and Nostalgia stacks are capped at 25 stacks.
  • EXTRA! - Kent's force of personality emboldens his companions. Kent increases the damage of all Champions by your current Achievement bonus.
  • Inseparable - If Virgil qualifies for an adventure restriction based on his tags, age, ability scores, etc., Kent may be used as well. Note: this won't be enabled until after Virgil's release!

Specializations

  • Robust Rivals - Kent increases the attack bonus of Tokens of the Departed by +100% for each Rivals of Waterdeep Champion, stacking multiplicatively and applied multiplicatively.
  • Potent Poison - Whenever Kent attacks an enemy and doesn't kill it, it is affected by a virulent poison. The poison deals 400% of your BUD to the enemy each second for 4 seconds.

Ultimate Ability

  • Wails from the Grave - For 30 seconds, when Kent makes a normal attack, a ghostly spirit briefly appears and makes an attack dealing ultimate damage, on another random enemy if possible. Additionally, the weather changes to fog.

Idle Champion Spotlight: Egbert 
Posted in Idle Champions.

"I'll do my best, but no promises. But I'll do my best. But no promises!"

Finding atonement for past deeds can lead people in many different directions. Egbert stumbled into a life of adventure with the Oxventurers, and now uses his paladin powers to try to keep the team safe, even as he's impulsively running into danger first! He now joins fellow members Dob, Merilwen, Rust on the Harbour, Corazón and Prudence in the Idle Champions roster during Higharvestide 6.

I. Egbert

Dungeons & Dragons Egbert Key Art
    Clumsy but well-meaning, Egbert the Dragonborn Paladin was summarily booted out of his Paladin order after a terrible incident he doesn’t like to talk about. Setting out on his quest for atonement with a new deity in tow, La Vache Mauve, he falls in with the Oxventurers Guild and, by his reckoning, questing with them offers as good a chance as any of guiding him towards absolution. Often impulsive, he very rarely plans beyond his initial moment of ‘inspiration’ but his heart’s in the right place. Well, at least until he next rushes into battle, trips into a spike pit and it ends up kebabbed on a skewer…

Egbert is a Tanking, Support, Healing, and Gold Find Champion who seeks atonement after being kicked out of his Paladin order. Does he make amends for is past transgressions, or will his companions lead him astray? He can be added to the formation by swapping him out with Minsc (Slot 7).



II. Egbert's Stats

Race: Dragonborn Alignment: Chaotic Good
Class: Paladin Gender: Male Pronouns: He/Him
Age: 24
Affiliation: Oxventurers Guild

STR: 18 DEX: 14 CON: 14
INT: 10 WIS: 8 CHA: 18

Role: Tanking, Support, Healing, Gold Find
Eligible for Patrons: Mirt, Vajra, Zariel
Slot: 7 (Minsc)


III. Egbert's Design

Dungeons & Dragons Egbert gif

Mike Channell is the latest member of the Oxventurers crew that we have had the pleasure to work with! This automotive enthusiast and racing driver fan is a writer and presenter for Outside Xbox, who can drive a race car both in videogames and in real life. While we couldn't fit Ginetta G40 into our formations, it was great fun to bring his dragonborn paladin into Idle Champions!

Egbert constantly struggles to Atone for the Past, but it can be difficult when he spends so much time with his chaotic friends. He gains Atonement points for every lawful Champion in the formation, and loses them for every chaotic Champion. Fortunately his damage buff is based on the number of Atonement points he has squared! That means filling the formation with his Oxventurers crew will push his Atonement points into the negative, but his buff will still be in the positive!

Many of his other abilities use the absolute value of the number of Atonement points Egbert has, so once again the goal is to maximize the number of lawful or chaotic Champions in the formation. That will push that number as high as it can go, either positive or negative! That absolute value will affect how much healing he will offer the most damaged Champion when he uses Lay On Hands, how much he increases the health of all other Champions with his Friendly Protection, and how much more gold find his Golden Scales will provide. He'll also increase the effect of Atone for the Past for each enemy on screen because he believes the More the Merrier.

Egbert's first specialization determines if neutral Champions will add or subtract from his Atonement points. His second specialization lets him focus more on support, healing, or gold find. For his normal attack, Egbert always has some Homemade Bombs to throw at the nearest enemy. But when things get dire and he needs more than just bombs, he can seek divine intervention from La Vache Mauve! This Ultimate attack causes the epic sight of La Vache Mauve to appear in the sky, inspiring the Champions to do more damage and forcing the enemies to take more damage!

IV. Egbert's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Homemade Bombs - Egbert lights the fuse of a bomb with a puff of fire from his mouth and throws it at the nearest enemy. It explodes, dealing 1 hit to all enemies in a small area and knocking them back a short distance

Formation Abilities

  • Atone for the Past - Egbert has a number of Atonement points equal to the number of lawful Champions in the formation minus the number of chaotic Champions in the formation, not including Egbert himself. Egbert increases the damage of all Champions behind him by +100% times the number of Atonement points he has squared.
  • Lay On Hands - After Egbert makes a base attack, if there is a Champion below 50% hit points (including himself), he heals the most damaged Champion for 10 times the absolute value of the number of Atonement points he has.
  • Friendly Protection - Egbert increases the health of all other Champions by 5% of his max health multiplied by the absolute value of the number of Atonement points he has.
  • More the Merrier - Egbert increases the effect of Atone for the Past by 100% for each enemy on the screen and each point of enemy/boss enrage, stacking additively and then applying multiplicatively.
  • Golden Scales - Egbert increases the global gold find by 100% times the absolute value of the number of Atonement points he has.

Specializations

Egbert's first specialization determines if neutral Champions, on the lawful/chaotic axis, add or subtract to Egbert's Atonement points.
  • Atonement Begins with an Apology - The number of neutral Champions, on the lawful/chaotic axis, in the formation is added to Egbert's Atonement points.
  • Team Chaos Team - The number of neutral Champions, on the lawful/chaotic axis, in the formation is subtracted from Egbert's Atonement points.
Egbert's second specialization determines if he focuses on support, healing, or gold find.
  • Smoky Bombs - Egbert's bombs now also create smoke clouds that lasts for 10 seconds. Enemies in one or more smoke clouds have a 50% chance to miss with their attack and take an additional +400% damage from attacks.
  • Health Kick - Egbert's Lay On Hands targets the two most damaged Champions and the amount of healing is increased by 100%.
  • Oxventure Capitalism - Egbert increases the effect of Golden Scales by 100% for each Oxventures affiliation member in the formation, stacking multiplicatively.

Ultimate Ability

  • La Vache Mauve - Clouds come down from the top of the screen and part, revealing the sun which rotates to reveal the head of La Vache Mauve. Radiant light shines out and illuminates the area. Enemies take ultimate damage, and the Champions deal +1000% damage for 20 seconds.

Slot 2: Gold Find Increase
Slot 3: Health Increase
Slot 4: Atone for the Past

VI. Conclusion

Will you surround Egbert with lawful Champions so he can find the atonement he's searching for? Or will he enjoy formations filled with the Oxventurers crew? We're excited to hear all about how much you are enjoying having Egbert in your formations on the Idle Champions Subreddit, on the Steam forums, or on the Official Idle Champions Discord!

Idle Champion Spotlight: Dob 
Posted in Idle Champions.

This relentlessly upbeat bard is happy to help wherever he can, and never lets a little thing like 'not having a plan' stand in the way of action!

Dob is a traveling entertainer, busking from town to town looking for his lost sister. His travels have lead him to the Oxventurers Guild, and he now joins fellow members Merilwen, Rust on the Harbour, Corazón and Prudence in the Idle Champions roster during Brightswords 5.

I. Dob

Dungeons & Dragons Dob Key Art
    Dob never knew his parents. When he fell ill as a baby, his sister Suzette searched far and wide for a cure. She successfully saved his life, but on the last of her trips out to find medicine, Suzette never returned. So Dob became a self-taught traveling bard, sleeping under the stars and roaming town to town in search of his lost sister. This brought him into contact with the Oxventurers, with whom he shares in many bizarre adventures, including one that did indeed see him reuniting at last with his long-lost sister!

Dob is a Support and Gold Find Champion, increasing the damage of Champions not next to him while boosting gold find based on how many Champions are adjacent. He has the unfortunate habit of dumping all that hard-found gold into a nearby lake to keep it safe, but he'll make sure to make it up to the formation! He can be added to the formation by swapping him out with Arkhan (Slot 12).

III. Dob's Design

Dungeons & Dragons Dob

Most of our community will know Luke Westaway from his work on Outside Xbox and Outside Xtra, but he's also the designer behind the sci-fi racing tabletop RPG Gravity RIP. As an accomplished singer/songwriter, it's no surprise he crafted the Half-Orc Bard from the Oxventurers crew. It is a pleasure to work with Luke and have Dob play his hard-rocking lute in our game!

Dob is an energetic music-maker who is enthusiastic about helping his friends fight enemies and keep their earnings safe. This Traveling Entertainer inspires anyone not next to him to be more powerful. If he needs to leap into the action himself, he can cause a Thunderwave by playing a chord on his Lute. Dob also makes sure to keep Busking to increase the formation's gold find, but heavy purses make him nervous. There's a chance he'll run off with the team's money, using his Offshore Accounting to stash the cash in a lake. When he returns from that deposit, he'll make up for it by increasing his damage and gold find bonuses.

As an accomplished and charismatic bard, Dob gets along with a wide variety of people! Depending on who he's hanging out with, he'll increase the Traveling Entertainer attack bonus. Befriend the Magical will focus on Oxventurers Champions or Champions with a magical base attack, Befriend the Friendly is all about those with a high Charisma or Oxventurers Champions, Befriend the Quick focuses on Dexterous or Oxventurers Champions, or if there's a lot of unique races in the formation he can just Befriend Everybody! When things look dire, Dob raises Ethelfrith's Hammer into the air to unleash a horde of skeletons on his enemies, pushing them back behind a wall, and boosting the power of all evil Champions!

IV. Dob's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Thunderwave - Dob leaps out to the closest enemy and plays a chord on his Lute that sends out a magical blast of thunder and lightning, dealing 1 hit to all enemies in the area and pushing them back a short distance.

Formation Abilities

  • Traveling Entertainer - Dob increases the damage of all Champions NOT next to him by 400%.
  • Busking - Dob increases global gold find by 30% for each Champion next to him, stacking multiplicatively.
  • Offshore Accounting - At the transition to each new area, there is a 25% chance that Dob runs off with a wheelbarrow of money, setting the Champion's gold amount to zero as he dumps all the Champions' money into a lake. He gains Deposit stacks equal to the exponent of the lost gold. Dob increases both the damage increase of Traveling Entertainer and the gold find bonus of Busking by 10% for each Deposit stack, stacking additively and applied multiplicatively.

Specializations

  • Befriend the Magical - Dob increases the attack bonus of Traveling Entertainer by +100% for each Oxventurers Champion or Champion with a magical base attack, stacking multiplicatively and applied multiplicatively.
  • Befriend the Friendly - Dob increases the attack bonus of Traveling Entertainer by +100% for each Oxventurers Champion or Champion with a Charisma of 17 or higher, stacking multiplicatively and applied multiplicatively.
  • Befriend the Quick - Dob increases the attack bonus of Traveling Entertainer by +100% for each Oxventurers Champion or Champion with a Dexterity of 17 or higher, stacking multiplicatively and applied multiplicatively.
  • Befriend Everybody! - Dob increases the attack bonus of Traveling Entertainer by +100% for each unique race in the formation, stacking multiplicatively and applied multiplicatively.

Ultimate Ability

  • Ethelfrith's Hammer - Dob raises Ethelfrith's hammer into the air, causing 60 skeletons and one flameskull burst out of the ground. The flameskull oversees the skeletons building a wall of stone, and any enemies in the area where the wall is being built take ultimate damage and are pushed back by the skeletons behind the wall. The wall lasts for 20 seconds and for that time enemies cannot pass it. While the wall is present, Evil Champions deal +1000% damage for reasons best left unsaid.

Idle Champion Spotlight: Voronika 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Achieving any goal while trapped in the mists of Ravenloft can be exceptionally difficult. But our next Champion has the cunning to get what she wants, even when Darklords and death stand in her way!

Voronika has wandered the mists as a ghost, traveled the domains of dread imbued into a sword, and taken over the land of her youth. Now she joins her fellow Black Dice Society companions in the Idle Champions roster during Ahghairon's Day 5.

I. Voronika

Dungeons & Dragons Voronika Key Art
    This young Eladrin woman was raised to be the Queen of Koshmarr. What was meant to be an idyllic life took a dark turn when she was killed on the night of her wedding. But Voronika didn't let death stop her, even as she was pulled into the machinations of greater powers. Using her excellent intelligence and observational skills, as well as a lot of cunning and manipulation, she used the crown of the Raven Queen to defeat Zybilna and cause the fall of Prismeer. This action drew the mists to Voronika, and she became the new Darklord of her domain of Koshmarr.

Dungeons & Dragons Voronika

III. Voronika's Design

We were thrilled to have Vee Mus'e join Codename Entertainment as our Partner & Talent Manager, and then to continue that work creating her character in Idle Champions! She has a notable presence in the D&D community as a professional Dungeon Master, writer, player, and mini painter, showing off her skills on our Twitch channel every Friday on Paint and Slay! Her YouTube channel has a wealth of resources, instructional videos, and advice for anyone wishing to learn more about crafting and mini painting, and you can enjoy her D&D performances on a multitude of shows, including The Black Dice Socity.

Voronika's goal is to find the Crown of the Raven Queen, which will enable her to transform into her incredibly powerful Darklord form. To do this, she chooses one Champion to join her Inner Circle. Her Search for the Crown requires her to reach a high enough level, defeat many monsters while her Inner Circle Champion is part of the formation, and use enough Ultimates from any Champion. When her goals are complete and she acquires the crown, she becomes the Darklord of Koshmarr, increasing the damage of her Produce Flame, and unlocking her Horrifying Visage Ultimate attack!

While she may be focused on her personal goals, Voronika also aids the formation with some Calculating Guidance, increasing the damage of all evil Champions and Black Dice Society members in the column in front of her. The more Ultimate attacks that are used, the stronger her Calculating Guidance becomes as the formation demonstrates their Ultimate Power. Her ghostly form reminds anyone who has effects that care about dead Champions that she was Wed, then Undead.

All of this requires Voronika to select one Champion to become her focus. Her first Specialization offers three potential Inner Circle Champions to choose from, and once that Champion is picked they gain entry into the Black Dice Society. Voronika then uses her second Specialization to decide if she wants to Assist the Puppet and boost that Champion's power, or Dispose of the Fool and help others as she sends her chosen Champion away.

IV. Voronika's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Produce Flame - Voronika creates a flame in her hand which she fires at a random enemy. If Voronika has achieved her Darklord form, the target is lit on fire and takes 1 second of BUD damage every second for 5 seconds.

Formation Abilities

  • Wed, then Undead - After being killed on her wedding night, Voronika became a ghost. Voronika counts as "dead" for the purposes of effects that care about dead Champions, but "alive" for all other purposes. She still counts as "dead" even after reaching her Darklord form. She can be attacked like normal and she can be "killed", at which point she stops granting all effects like any dead Champion would.
  • Calculating Guidance - Voronika increases the damage of all Champions in one column in front of her by +100% for each Champion in the formation that is either a member of the Black Dice Society or Evil. This stacks additively until Voronika completes her Search for the Crown, when it changes to stack multiplicably.
  • Search for the Crown - Voronika's search for the Crown of Raven Queen requires her to complete 3 goals. When Voronika completes all 3 goals, she acquires the crown, transforms into her Darklord Form, unlocks her ultimate attack, and improves her base attack.
  • Ultimate Power - Voronika increases the effect of Calculating Guidance by +10% for each use of an Ultimate while she is in the formation, stacking additively and applied multiplicably. Caps at 1,000,000 stacks. These stacks persist until reset.

Specializations

Voronika's first specialization dynamically displays 3 potential Champions. The Champion chosen becomes a member of Voronika's Inner Circle.
  • Inner Circle - Voronika chooses a Champion to be her Inner Circle champion. They gain the Black Dice Society affiliation membership if they don't already have it. Voronika displays herself if there aren't enough choices.
Voronika's second specialization offers benefits depending on if the Inner Circle Champion is kept in the formation, or removed.
  • Assist the Puppet - Voronika's Inner Circle Champion gets an increase depending on the Champions roles. Champions with multiple roles get all the benefits. Support will increase the effects of the Champion's positional formation abilities, DPS will have Calculating Guidance applied to them at all times, and applies twice if they're in the correct column, and Tanking Champions will have their overwhelm value increased by 10.
  • Dispose of the Fool - After Voronika has achieved her Darklord form, she increases the effect of Calculating Guidance by +100% while her Inner Circle Champion is not part of the formation.

Ultimate Ability

  • Horrifying Visage - Voronika moves in front of the party, magically pushing back all monsters a short distance. All enemies take ultimate damage, and then all surviving enemies deal 90% less damage for 30 seconds. In addition, the boss/enemy enrage timer fills 200% slower for 30 seconds.

Idle Champion Spotlight: Valentine 
Posted in Idle Champions.

It's a constant struggle to keep control over your own life and destiny when traversing the Domains of Dread. But our next Champion is determined to be in charge no matter who, or what, stands in her way.

Valentine was altered and reanimated after her horrific murder, and while this second chance comes with a heavy price, she's determined to use the power it provides to her own benefit. She joins her companions in The Black Dice Society in the Idle Champions roster during Midsummer 5.

I. Valentine

Dungeons & Dragons Valentine Key Art
    Valentine was once a social butterfly, nightlife connoisseur, and princess of a shady family business until her life ended in sudden tragedy. Through the mysterious will of Bluetspur, Valentine was given a second chance at life, though no miracle comes without consequence. Now she wanders the domains of dread with her companion Tatyana, in search of purpose and power.


Valentine is a Support and Gold Find Champion who takes hold of any incoming positional formation abilities, and uses her telepathic powers to broadcast and boost them, making those abilities more deadly! When you want to add her to your formation, you can swap her with Calliope in slot 5.

II. Valentine's Stats

Race: Reborn Half-Elf Alignment: True Neutral

STR: 9 DEX: 13 CON: 14
INT: 12 WIS: 13 CHA: 17

Role: Support, Gold Find
Eligible for Patrons: Vajra, Strahd (via Feat), Zariel (via Feat)
Slot: 5 (Calliope)


Dungeons & Dragons Valentine

III. Valentine's Design

Host, writer, producer, and TTRPG performer Saige Ryan has extensive experience creating content in a huge variety of spaces! We were excited to work with her and bring her Champion to life! Idle Champions fans will know her best as the creator of Valentine from The Black Dice Society, but she also plays characters in several shows on Pixel Circus, and can be found enjoying gaming and pop culture content on Smosh Games as well as her own Twitch channel.

The most deadly weapon Valentine has is her mind, and she uses her telepathic abilities to boost the deadliness of the formation. The more positional formation abilities that she is affected by, the more powerful she can make the rest of the formation! She can use Tregrum, the aberrant spirit in her brain, to harness that power and turn it into a damage boost for DPS Champions. As a Socialite she'll also share or boost those formation abilities with those damage dealers! And as she enjoys A Life of Leisure Valentine will also turn those abilities into an increase in gold find.

Valentine can focus on damage, gold, or her friendship with her fellow Black Dice Society member Tatyana. When All Hail the God Brain, Tregrum further boosts the damage of DPS Champions. If Tatyana is being My Loyal Bodyguard and making sure that Valentine is affected by her Faithful Friend ability, Valentine will return the favor and boost its effect! But if what matters most is gold find, the Family Business will increase that power substantially! When helping her friends isn't enough, Valentine will take damage into her own hands and summon the Arms of Hadar! She'll move to the closest enemy while inky black tentacles erupt out of her body, causing massive damage to all enemies in a huge area all while they are grappled and stunned!

IV. Valentine's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Mind Sliver - Valentine attacks a random enemy with a mental magic attack for one hit, and enemies have a 50% chance that they are stunned for 2 seconds.

Formation Abilities

  • Tregrum - The aberrant spirit in Valentine's brain telepathically reaches out to the other Champions in the formation. For each positional formation ability affecting Valentine, she increases the damage of all Champions with the DPS role by +100%, stacking multiplicably.
  • Socialite - Valentine duplicates any positional formation abilities that are affecting her to Champions in the formation with the DPS role. If the receiving Champion already has the formation ability, the formation ability is instead boosted by +50%.
  • A Life of Leisure - Valentine increases the formation's gold find by +100% for each positional formation ability affecting her, stacking multiplicably.

Specializations

  • All Hail the God Brain - Tregrum's pre-stack damage increase is increased by +25%.
  • My Loyal Bodyguard - If Valentine is affected by Tatyana's Faithful Friend ability, its effect is increased by +200%.
  • Family Business - A Life of Leisure's total gold find is increased by +200%.

Ultimate Ability

  • Arms of Hadar - Valentine moves up near the closest enemy and inky black tentacles erupt from her eyes, mouth, and hands to attack nearby enemies. Enemies in the area take massive damage, and are grappled by tentacles for 4-8 seconds. While grappled, the enemies are stunned and take +1000% damage from all sources.

Idle Champion Spotlight: Nahara 
Posted in Idle Champions.

The mists of Ravenloft are filled with loss, dread, and despair. But some make the choice to fight the darkness with a cheerful disposition and a child-like sense of wonder.

Nahara adventures into the mists on a mission to remember her past, trying to figure out where she has come from and who she was in previous lives. With a proper demeanor and joyful smile, she tries to balance her hopeful vigilance with her dark sense of vengeance. She joins her fellow The Black Dice Society Champions in the Idle Champions roster during Founder's Day 5.

I. Nahara

Dungeons & Dragons Nahara Key Art
    When she fell into the mists of Ravenloft, Nahara was unable to remember anything from her life, or previous lives. All she knows is she's caught in the conflict between her current Patron, Azalin Rex, and his foe Strahd von Zarovich, who has been desperately seeking her out.


Nahara is a DPS and Speed Champion, who permanently grows more powerful as she recovers her lost memories by completing areas and quickly dispatching enemies. When you want to add her to your formation you can swap her with Nayeli in slot 3.

II. Nahara's Stats

Race:Aasimar (Reborn) Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Class: Warlock/Bard Gender: Female Pronouns: She/Her
Age: 27
Affiliation: Black Dice Society

STR: 9 DEX: 16 CON: 12

Role: DPS, Speed
Eligible for Patrons: Vajra (via Feat), Strahd (via special rule), Zariel (via Feat)
Slot: 3 (Nayeli)


Dungeons & Dragons Nahara

III. Nahara's Design

With an extensive resume of livestreams, Noura Ibrahim is well known to the TTRPG community for a variety of performances and characters. She's brought Nahara to life with her acting and roleplaying skills on The Black Dice Society, as well as with her extensive cosplay talents. It was wonderful to work with her to bring that dedication to creating her Champion into our game!

Nahara may have the beauty and grace of an angel, but she also has the power to back up her dark sense of vengeance and justice. She's quick to Witch Bolt oncoming enemies, and the outcome of her attacks will inspire her To Amuse or Avenge. She gains a Levity stack when she attacks and defeats at least one enemy, but she loses a Levity stack when she attacks and no enemies die. The more stacks she has, the faster the formation will progress by reducing area requirements, and the fewer she has, the more powerful her attacks become! She is keen to recover bits of her lost memories as she asks Who Am I? and the more she remembers the more powerful she becomes. Thankfully she is part of a Strong Society which boosts her damage for every Black Dice Society member who joins her in the formation. Since she is Beloved by Strahd she can easily travel the mists to the Count's side, and can start in all Strahd patron adventures no matter the restrictions.

All of Nahara's Specializations focus on increasing one of her many abilities. If she's anxious to learn more about her past, A Grave Experience will increase the amount she receives from Who Am I? Or she can use A Skilled Lyre to further reduce the area requirements to get through adventures faster. But when Strahd comes calling she can surround herself with her friends, using A Barovian Bond to allow all Black Dice Society members to join her in Strahd Patron variants, as well as increase the power she gains from their support. When the battle becomes fierce, Nahara will manifest an aspect of her patron's terrible power with her Form of Dread. This Ultimate attack greatly boosts her damage and has the chance to leave enemies stunned!

IV. Nahara's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Witch Bolt - Nahara attacks a random enemy and every enemy that she has already hit with this attack.

Formation Abilities

  • Who Am I? - Nahara recovers a bit of her lost memory as she adventures. If Nahara is in the formation when you complete an area for the first time, she gets a +0.2% damage bonus, stacking additively. These bonuses persist through resets.
  • To Amuse or Avenge - When Nahara attacks and defeats at least one enemy, she gains a Levity stack, with a maximum of 30 stacks. When she attacks and doesn't defeat an enemy, she loses a Levity stack. Nahara gets a 10% damage boost for each Levity stack she has below 30, and at the start of each area, she reduces the area requirements by 2% for each Levity stack above 15.
  • Strong Society - Nahara gets a +100% damage bonus for each other Black Dice Society affiliation member in the formation, stacking multiplicatively.
  • Beloved by Strahd - Nahara is eligible to start in all Strahd patron adventures, even if variant restrictions would say otherwise.

Specializations

  • A Grave Experience - The Who Am I? counter increments three times for every area cleared.
  • A Barovian Bond - Strong Society gets a +100% increase, and Black Dice Society members can be used if Strahd is currently the Patron, even if they do not qualify for the other variant requirements.
  • A Skilled Lyre - The area reduction in To Amuse or Avenge is increased by 50%.

Ultimate Ability

  • Form of Dread - Nahara takes off into the air and channels the power of her patron Azalin Rex for 15 seconds. Her damage is increased by 1000% while in this form and any enemy she hits has a 50% chance of being stunned for 2 seconds.

Idle Champion Spotlight: Merilwen 
Posted in Idle Champions.

This is the tail of a druid who might look cute, but when her friends are in danger there's no kitten around! She's a fur-midable opponent who can cause a cat-astrophe to her enemies!

Merilwen is a Wood Elf druid with a penchant for puns and a love of all things nature! She joins her fellow Oxventure Guild members Rust on the Harbour, Corazón and Prudence in the Idle Champions roster during Dragondown 5.

I. Merilwen

Dungeons & Dragons Merilwen

    Merilwen is at home in nature, happy to speak with animals or plants at the first opportunity. She's always ready to pull out her trusty bow, or turn into a cat, to get out of many tough situations. With a fierce loyalty to her friends, and to nature itself, she'll call upon the moon to deal with anyone who gets on her bad side. And if you're really unlucky, you might stumble into Merilwen's Meatgrinder. Spoilers: it's a very bad time.

Merilwen is a Support and Gold Find Champion who increases the damage of all Neutral Champions, and when she transforms into a cat, she increases the attack rate of adjacent Champions. Her gold find and ultimate are both improved when she is combined with other members of the Oxventurers affiliation. She can be added to the formation by swapping her out with Celeste (Slot 2).

II. Merilwen's Stats

Race: Elf (Wood) Alignment: True Neutral
Class: Druid (Circle of the Moon) Gender: Female Pronouns: She/Her
Age: 101
Affiliation: Oxventurers Guild

STR: 12 DEX: 17 CON: 15
INT: 14 WIS: 20 CHA: 11

Role: Support, Gold Find
Eligible for Patrons: Vajra and Strahd
Slot: 2 (Celeste)


Dungeons & Dragons Merilwen Key Art

III. Merilwen's Design

It was delightful to work with Ellen Rose on the design Merilwen, and bring this nature loving fan of puns to Idle Champions! Merilwen is our fourth Champion from the Oxventure crew from Outside Xbox and Outside Xtra, so it was especially fun to dig into the ways she could interact with the other Oxventurer's Guild members.

Merilwen is fiercely loyal to her friends, and to nature itself, which she demonstrates in all the ways she supports the formation. She prefers A Neutral Party, not those who lean good or evil, so she increases the damage of all Neutral Champions. While in her elf form, Merilwen will hurl Punishing Puns at enemies to increase the damage A Neutral Party can do, and will attack enemies with a magical Poison Spray. But she can also stop attacking and Wild Shape into a cat, using her Distracting Cuteness to inspire those adjacent to her to attack faster. And the more Oxventurers Guild Champions that have joined her in the formation, the more Liquidity she'll have to increase everyone's gold find.

Merilwen's Specializations encourages her to pick one thing to focus on. She can cause additional damage by making enemies Stink like Skunk, increases gold find because she Treasures her Friends, or further increases the rate of attacks of her adjacent allies in her Mew-will-wren form. All of this support is a huge help to the formation, but sometimes Merilwen wants to join the battle in epic fashion with Merilwen's Meat Grinder! This Ultimate Attack causes stone spikes to shoot out of the ground to cause massive damage, and if other Oxventurer's Guild members are part of the formation they'll help make her Ultimate even more deadly!

IV. Merilwen's Abilities

Basic Attack

Merilwen has two attacks depending on if she's in cat or elf form:
  • Distracting Cuteness — Merilwen does not attack while in cat form.
  • Poison Spray — Merilwen attacks a random enemy with a magical spray of poison.

Formation Abilities

  • A Neutral Party — Merilwen increases the damage of all Neutral (along the good/evil spectrum) Champions in the formation by 100%.
  • Liquidity — Increase gold find by +100% for each Oxventurers Guild Champion in the formation, stacking multiplicatively.
  • Wild Shape — At the start of each non-boss area, Merilwen takes on the form of a wild cat. She no longer makes normal attacks, but the attack speed cooldown of every adjacent Champion is reduced by 0.5 seconds. If there are ever 15 or more enemies on the screen, Merilwen transforms back to her normal form and starts attacking until the party switches areas.
  • Punishing Puns — While in her elf form, Merilwen boosts A Neutral Party by +100% for each enemy, stacking additively.

Specializations

  • Stink Like Skunk — Merilwen's normal attack makes hit enemies stink like skunk, taking extra damage every second for 5 seconds.
  • Treasures her Friends — Merilwen gains an Encouragement stack each second that an enemy is not defeated. For each Encouragement stack, the gold find of Liquidity is increased by +100%, stacking additively. When an enemy is defeated or the party changes areas, the stacks are reset to 0.
  • Meow-il-wen — Merilwen's Wild Shape attack speed cooldown reduction is increased by 1 second and persists when she is in her elf form.

Ultimate Ability

  • Merilwen's Meat Grinder — Stone spikes come out of the ground with a 30 second duration. Enemies in the area take massive damage over time while in the area. Secondary effects are triggered based on if other Oxventurer's Guild members are part of the formation:
    • Corazón: Enemies affected by Grease in the spike area take +200% damage from all sources.
    • Prudence: Prudence's glee stacks are set to maximum.
    • Rust: Gold find is increased by +1000% for 30 seconds.

Idle Champion Spotlight: Nordom 
Posted in Idle Champions.

"I think therefore I am. I think."

The Great Modron March returns to Idle Champions, and this time a rogue modron has come along for the event! Nordom the Modron may be subtly different than the rest of his kind, but he's awaiting your orders to process your commands.

I. Nordom



    Modrons are the embodiment of law and order, marching in lockstep through the planes. But when Nordom Whistlklik was separated from his fellow modrons, the essence of chaos infected this rogue quadrone. Now with his crossbow-shaped gear spirits in hand, he works to fit his complex new outlook into his logical, if quirky, understanding of the planes.

Nordom is a Support Champion who adopted his new designation when he was called a "backward modron", and now takes on his new role in the formation with all the processing power he can muster. His four-armed assistance can be added to your formation by swapping him out with Makos (Slot 9).

II. Nordom's Stats

Race: Modron Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Gender: Non-Binary Pronouns: He/Him
Age: 122 Class: Fighter

STR: 16 DEX: 16 CON: 16
INT: 16 WIS: 8 CHA: 8

Role: Support

Eligible for Patrons: Vajra, Strahd

Slot: 9 (Makos)


Dungeons & Dragons Nordom Key Art

III. Nordom's Design

Planescape: Torment is a videogame that holds a special place in the hearts of many Dungeons & Dragons fans. Nordom can be a challenging character to find in that game, but his quirky dialogue and unique perspective are well worth the effort. Fortunately adding him to your Champion roster is a bit easier!

As an exemplar of law and order, and a being used to working as part of a greater whole, Nordom strives to bring those ideals to his companions. He likes to help Form Orderly Ranks by increasing the damage of Champions ahead of him, and his Rule of Law directive means that he will increase the damage bonus of Form Orderly Ranks for every Lawful Champion in the formation. If you have a modron core attached to an adventuring party that he is in, Nordom will increase the rate the core improves with his Modron Core Toolbox.

The two gear spirits that Nordom carries have taken the form of crossbows, which he normally uses to attack enemies. However his Specializations will add new capabilities to the crossbow attacks. He can equip Piercing Bolts to cause enemies he hits to take more damage, or Explosive Bolts which causes Nordom's attacks to explode upon impact and push the target back! While this quadrone has gone rogue, he can still issue an emergency call for backup with his Ultimate, The Frequent Modron March. Responding to his beacon, a multitude of modrons march en mass, damaging the encroaching enemies and shoving them away from the party!



IV. Nordom's Abilities

Basic Attack

  • Gear Spirits — Two gear spirits have taken the form of crossbows, which Nordom fires simultaneously at the closest two enemies. If only one enemy remains, he'll instead hit it twice.

Formation Abilities

  • Form Orderly Ranks — Nordom increases the damage of all Champions in the column ahead of him by 100%.
  • Rule of Law — Nordom increases the effect of Form Orderly Ranks by +100% for each Lawful Champion in the formation, stacking multiplicatively.
  • Modron Core Toolbox — Nordom increases the amount of experience gained on the modron core attached to his adventuring party when completing new areas by 20%.

Specializations

  • Piercing Bolts — Enemies hit by Nordom's attacks take 100% more damage for the next 10 seconds. This ability stacks once, and the timer resets if it applies again before the 10 seconds are up.
  • Explosive Bolts — Nordom's attacks explode upon impact, pushing the target back a short distance..

Ultimate Ability

  • The Frequent Modron March — A multitude of Modrons march from left to right over 15 seconds, pushing all enemies back a short distance and dealing ongoing massive damage as they pass by.
