Anatomy of a Plego
This is the printable version of a plego. The lego brick plego is laid out slightly differently.
This is the lego brick plego. Stickers will be added for the movement descriptor, homeland, attack descriptor, and text. HP counters are removable for taking battle damage. The max HP for a plego is the number of knobs on the back side.
Each plego that belongs to a player is marked with a 1x1 tile that indicates the color of the summoning ground to which the plego belongs. This helps to identify which plegos on the battleground (BG) belong to which player.
Hit Points (HP)
Minions have between 1 and 6 max HP, indicated by the number of knobs present on the back of the base. When all HP have been depleted, the minion and any modifiers on it are destroyed.
The movement descriptor (MD) is a 5x5 grid representing where a minion may move (shown as X) in relationship to the position and orientation of the minion (shown as ■). Movement descriptors can be altered by effects, modifications and abilities.
The homeland indicator (HI) shows a pictoral symbol that represents the land type that is the minion's homeland. When adjacent to any land plego that matches the homeland type, a minion may both rotate and attack in the same turn (called the homeland ability).
The attack descriptor is a 5x5 grid representing how much damage squares will receive (shown as numbers) in relationship to the position of the minion (shown as ■). Attack descriptors can be altered by effects, modifications and abilities. Attacks do not harm allied minions and lands (no friendly fire).
A unique name is given to each minion, spell and modifier.
The text on a minion, spell or modifier may be one or more of the following: a description; an effect; an ability.
An informative tidbit intended for the imagination and has no bearing on the game.
An effect is declared with the lemniscate symbol ∞. Effects include an explanation of when they should be evaluated and what happens as a result. They essentially add rules and caveats to the game during play.
Abilities are denoted by the at symbol @. One minion ability can be used during the action phase of a player’s turn.
A minion, spell or modifier may only be summoned if one or more lands exist in the player’s summoning ground (SG). The land requirement indicates which type of lands and how many of each type are required in order to summon the plego. A wildcard (white square or rainbow pentagram) indicates that any land type will fullfill the requirement.
