Troops with this characteristic count as having successfully cast the Sorcerous Blast spell when they shoot. Treat the casting result as if a 6 PIP card was drawn. This spell can be dispelled.
Wizards in the same or adjacent box to a unit with this characteristic add 1 PIP to any casting result.
Mechanical Monstrosity is given to a Monstrous Creature (II). It can shoot as if it were an Organ Gun. When drawing a 1 PIP card for any activation place a Breakdown Effect token. This cannot be redrawn in any circumstance.
Breakdown Effect – While this is in place this unit may neither move nor shoot. The only activation that it can perform is to repair itself. This is treated as a difficult activation. If a 1 PIP card is drawn for this activation the Steam Tank explodes as if it were artillery. If successful remove the Breakdown Effect Token.
Mercenary troops must be paid 1 victory medal before the battle begins. You may choose not to do this – then, if their very first activation is a 1-PIP card they retreat from the battlefield (counting as lost).
