Hello! Are you looking forward to Fortune at Vell's End? Let me tell you, as exciting as developing for the set was, I would sure hope so! High Fantasy is a theme near and dear to my heart, and Kemah Karah, as much as it puts a new spin on things, is faithful to that theme to its core. Knowing that, I couldn't help but make myself a part of that world. While I won't be at Anthrocon in person this year, perhaps you can find me there anyway!
This completes the hat trick of guest Conductor previews!
Conductors power society, but what powers the conductors? We represent this with energy, and when Taz studies new and unfamiliar places, he finds more sources of it! (Much like Sikaah, he's a gas conductor with a license to travel--this one from Vell's End's Adept Academy.)
As part of a harem, Taz is all about defense. At a solid 20 stamina and Submissive (he costs 1 AP less to put out), he's good at what he does!
What sets him apart from a similar Furre like Aldrenn, however, lies in his ability to conduct. For a small payment from each available resource--AP, GP, energy, and exhaustion--he can directly pleasure a swinging Furre! (He can even do this while putting out, before Generous pleasure is given, and he'll still give non-Generous pleasure so long as he's still in the scene!)
Taz starts with the ability to do this twice, but gets to do it again whenever you get a new non-Home Haven (that is, a Haven that isn't a Home Haven), making his conducting even more potent than before!
Don't be intimidated by his steep GP cost--he's best in a multi-gender deck, perhaps one enabled by Dickscouting. With plenty of dual-gender Havens and AP Havens (you're playing plenty of AP Havens, right?) this pika's gift will keep on giving and giving!

i don't know that i'd call this overpowered. it's kind of expensive for moderate stamina and mostly average PE's. the fact that he uses so many resources for his ability keeps him from being too overpowered. since he can only use his ability once per turn and requires multiple havens to be effective, he's most likely going to be useful but of average effectiveness for most of the games he's used in.

@polkakitty: I was pretty bemused when you made your comments on Sigil's card. I think I'm allowed to say that while FAV has both Female cards with the Conductor mechanic and Male cards with the Adventurer mechanic (including an auction winner), the Conductor and Adventurer *archetypes* were designed in M/H (e.g. Sev) and F/H (e.g. Fake and Jinn, Reckless Rookies), respectively. This is why their respective starter decks are in those genders.
As a side note, Taz does get along very well with the Haidar Lions (perhaps because of a common sense of justice?), but he also works quite well with Sigil herself within the M/H Conductors archetype! Between us and cards like Blown Away (a gas conductor's specialty), you'll find that archetype to be pretty keen on keeping the board under control!
Of course, I'm quite interested in seeing what other sorts of decks I end up being used in! I have a couple more uses than I mentioned that I can think of, but after FAV comes out, I'd love to see some lists on the Deck Customization forum! ^_^

@Yuri: Well, you don't exhaust from putting out, so yeah, he can put out, then exhaust with his ability, but he's still in the fight so he deals his pleasure. Same as any fur with an exhaust ability.

Time for a little Razza-ma-Taz!
Cute, and powerful.
Yuri-Bloodfang on Jun 19th, 2014 @ 08:00 PM
Let me make sure I understand correctly, he exhausts while doing BOTH if you have the points? Puts out AND conducts? That'll bring down some serious pleasure on those heavy hitters in your opponents' decks.
polkakitty on Jun 19th, 2014 @ 07:32 PM
Hmm, that's an interesting idea for a card. He might not be an Adventurer, as such, but he's still got the ability to become stronger as the game goes on. He should have some good synergy with Tanglebrook Lions, as well.

Very nice looking card. Love the abilities and all.
Lafitte on Jun 19th, 2014 @ 04:26 PM
With that power he could useful in a lot of different decks, though. I find I'm using fewer home havens and more dual GP havens all the time, anyway.
Scrimno on Jun 19th, 2014 @ 03:41 PM
It's tempting to put him in a deck, but 4GP is pretty expensive. He is adorable though.
Tegome on Jun 19th, 2014 @ 02:48 PM
Taz loves his AP havens... both in game and out of game. :v
BlueJay on Jun 19th, 2014 @ 02:36 PM
Oh ho, another staff member gets the card treatment! A little harder to snag than Sigil, but I'll have him nonetheless.
