file Wording inconsistency with "Tend the Flock"

11 Mar 2019 08:48 #94010 by drnlmza
Most of the various cards which add blood from the blood bank to uncontrolled minions have been reworded to say "Add X blood to a Y in your uncontrolled region" (Govern the Unaligned, Enchant Kindred, Dreams of the Sphinx, Thing, etc).

However, Tend the Flock currently says
"Add 3 pool to a younger infernal vampire in your uncontrolled region."

It's the only card to use "pool" for this effect, which makes it a weird exception to this template for no apparent reason. Would it be possible to update the wording on Tend the Flock to match?

Also, given how common the "Add X blood" effect is, a sentence or two in the rulebook explaining this seems like a sensible addition.

Indeed.

It is planned.

Woah, wait, wait, wait.

This is a huge errata (buff) to this card? Are you serious?

:gang: :CEL: :FOR: :PRO: :cap6: Gangrel. Noddist. Camarilla. Once each turn, LivesByProxy may burn 1 blood to lose Protean :PRO: until the end of the turn and gain your choice of superior Auspex :AUS:, Obfuscate :OBF:, or Potence :POT: for the current action.

@thelonius: Add 3 blood from the blood bank to a younger infernal vampire in your uncontrolled region is waaay better than: Add 3 pool to a younger infernal vampire in your uncontrolled region.

It would be a change in the power level except that Tend the Flock was always from the blood bank:

The Heirs to the Blood printing said
"Move 3 pool from the bank to a younger infernal vampire"

That the current text can so easily be interpreted as not being from the blood bank is another reason to fix the wording.
