Body seems a little odd. But the idea of the eagle attack is something i think is fantastic.

I would give him a blowpipe instead of an eagle. The blowpipe can also double as an impact weapon.

Could the guy shoot an eagle with a blowpipe?

Eagles don't live in forests, they live in mountains, mongols use them.

Why do you think it's an eagle, he says it's a bird in the image name. For all you know it could be a Sparrow! :lol: But more likely a hawk.

It's not an eagle. You know how I can tell? He doesn't fall over when it lands on his arm. :) Seriously, eagles are huge. People don't hunt with eagles, they hunt with falcons (or hawks). That's why it's called "falconry".

(I had a friend who raised hunting birds.)

I love the bird attack idea.
I think its a very painful weapon. It should be a marksman attack, because I think the bird doesn't care about the terrain the enemy guards. The sharp eagle eyes will detect any opponent, no matter where he stands, and track him down.

Oh quick idea: Make him have a entangle aura that forces enemy troops in nearby hexes to stay on their place for one turn. However, they should be able to attack and defend normally.
Alas, I think it would be overpowered.

Cool, other than his hair is a little too blue for my tastes. Actually, the bird is neither an eagle or a falcon, but rather a wesnothian war-bird noted for its ferocious attacks against all manner of creatures when defending its territory. Only those raised from their youth by experienced foresters can be trained not to attack, and then only when handled by their trainer. When the trainer dies, the war-bird is killed as well, for it is too dangerous to others without the calming influence of the deceased.
