Hero Actions

Heroes are the only units in this game that can perform any actions.  Each hero can only perform 1 Hero Action (a default ability) at the beginning of the game and will gain the ability to do more as the game progresses.  Some heroes are able to have up to 4 Hero Actions.  In addition to this default ability (Action 1), each hero also begins the game with 1 ability according to their hero classification.  These hero classification abilities are always the 1st square on the left side of your hero mat.   Commanders begin with the Recruit 1 ability (Fig. 18), princes begin with the Build 1 ability, confessors begin with the Publish 1 ability, and generals begin with the Battle 1 ability (the 1st square on the left side of your hero mat).

Throughout play, there will only be five different actions that a hero can perform on their turn.  They can perform these actions in any order you choose and as often as you choose, as long as that hero has Hero Actions left to utilize.  The five Hero Actions are:

  • Move – Costs 1 Hero Action
  • Build – Costs 1 Hero Action
  • Battle – Costs 1 Hero Action
  • Publish – Costs 1 Hero Action
  • Recruit – Costs 1 Hero Action

Commanders – Commanders are the heroes that initially lead your entire army. They are good leaders in battle and are very versatile.

Confessors – Confessors do not have the ability to lead troops in battle. They are the only heroes who have the ability to publish confessional writings to convert opponents to their side.

Philip of Hesse

League of Confessors.PhilipofHesse

Philip of Hesse is a starting Commander for the Lutheran League.  He was mightily impressed by Martin Luther at the Diet of Worms in 1521, and in turn, actually began to study the New Testament.  What a concept!  Within a few years, he was willing to put his name on the articles of faith contained in the Augsburg Confession.  Now that the Lutheran League has been formed to defend protestant lands, Philip is the league’s inspiration through his promotion and tireless recruitment.  At times, he may be a little too good of a negotiator.  He is often willing to bend a lot further than his ally, John Frederick.  Regardless of his issues (for he was no sinless saint!), Philip is certainly committed to the Reformation cause for better or for worse.
