Abilities and their effects

There are two types of abilities: ones that apply to units (called abilities) and ones that only apply when using a particular attack (called specials or weapon specials). A unit may have multiple abilities and an attack can have multiple specials, but by convention only one weapon special should be assigned to any given attack.

The [abilities] tag

The following tags are used to describe an ability in WML:

  • [heals]: modifies the hitpoints of a unit at the beginning of the healer's turn
  • [regenerate]: modifies the hitpoints of a unit at the beginning of the unit's turn
  • [resistance]: modifies the resistance of a unit to damage
  • [leadership]: modifies the damage of a unit
  • [skirmisher]: negates enemy zones of control
  • [illuminates]: modifies the time of day adjacent to the affected units
  • [teleport]: allows the unit to teleport
  • [hides]: renders the unit invisible to enemies

Any other name is valid (for example [dummy]), but will result in an ability that does nothing but report it's there. These tags still use the same common keys and tags as every other ability. Note: a dummy ability must have an id for the name and description to display.

Common keys and tags for every ability

  • name: the name of the ability.
  • name_inactive: the name of the ability when inactive.
  • description: the description of the ability.
  • description_inactive: the description of the ability when inactive.
  • affect_self: if equal to 'yes', the ability will affect the unit that has it.
  • affect_allies: if equal to 'yes', the ability will affect allies in the specified adjacent hexes.
  • affect_enemies: if equal to 'yes', the ability will affect enemies in the specified adjacent hexes.
  • cumulative: if set to 'yes', this ability will be cumulative with the base value for this ability.
  • id: this ability will not be cumulative with other abilities using this id. Must be present if cumulative is anything other than 'yes'.
  • [adjacent_description]: contains all four of the above keys, which are used when an adjacent unit receives the ability.
  • [filter]: StandardUnitFilter If the unit owning the ability does not match this filter, the ability will be inactive.
  • [affect_adjacent]: each adjacent unit that does not match this filter will not receive its effects.
    • adjacent: a comma seperated list of any combination of these directions: n,ne,se,s,sw,nw.
    • [filter]: a StandardUnitFilter.
  • [filter_self]: if the owner of the ability does not match this filter, it will not receive the effects of the ability. [filter_self] takes a StandardUnitFilter as argument.
  • [filter_base_value]: filters on the value before any modifications; uses the keys equals, not_equals, etc. If several keys are used all have to match.

Extra keys used by the [heals] ability

  • value: the amount healed.
  • poison: can be one of slowed,cured.

Extra keys used by the [regenerate] ability

  • value: the amount healed.
  • poison: can be one of slowed,cured.

Extra keys and tags used by the [resistance] ability

  • value: set resistance to this value.
  • max_value: maximum resistance value. This value must be set in order for [resistance] to function.
  • add: adds to resistance.
  • sub: subtracts from resistance.
  • multiply: multiplies resistance value.
  • divide: divides resistance value.
  • apply_to: a list of damage types; if left out, the ability applies to all types.
  • active_on: one of 'defense' or 'offense'; if left out, the ability is active on both.

Extra keys used by the [leadership] ability

  • value: the percentage bonus to damage.

Extra keys used by the [illuminates] ability

  • value: the percentage bonus to lawful units.
  • max_value: the maximum percentage bonus given.
  • min_value: the minimum percentage bonus given.

Extra keys used by the [hides] ability

  • alert: the displayed text when the unit is discovered. Default "Ambushed!".

Extra tags used by the [teleport] ability

  • [tunnel] - a tunnel tag (see DirectActionsWML) (without the remove key) defining the tunneling source and target hexes, and maybe other conditions. (It automatically applies only to the unit with the ability.) You may use $teleport_unit inside the tunnel tag for filtering purposes.

  • add the number to add to the base value.
  • sub the number to subtract from the base value.
  • multiply: same as value, except that this multiplies the base value.

  • [filter_adjacent_location]: like [filter_adjacent], except that it filters on the locations rather than the units.
  • [filter_self]: the special will only be active if the owner matches this filter.
