    I feel like you can actually create some powerful lists with double Slann and some Endless Spells. Quick questions.

    -Does each Slann add a dice to the EotG? The wording is ambiguous.

    -Do multiple Astrolith Bearers still stack? it looks like their buffs are not unique

    I am quite sure that only one Slann can influence the EotG.

    For the Astrolith Bearer the wording is pretty clear, it doesn't stack. The keyword here is "any" which means one or more.

    Ahhh yes the word any. Thanks. The EoTG wording is definitely less clear. I agree that the spirit of the rule probably is a single Slann but the way its worded doesnt really exclude a second Slann from also being within 10" and flexing "its will" as well lol.

    I don't think I'd play it that way but I could see an arguement for someone who wanted too.

    You can certainly make an argument for gaining the affect for each Slann within 10" of an EotGs. Be ready to make your case before a tournament organizer though. You should definitely ask the TO about it before attending any event with plans of using this interpretation.

    One could argue that the first Slann to manipulate the EotG applies the rule "cosmic engine", so another Slann cannot do the same because he too would apply the same rule/buff. Balancing wise this would be too good to be true. Slann + Kroak or another Slann with engines could summon so reliably or double move and attacks of the whole army more oftenly.

    yeah I agree. I would play it that way but if you wanted to try and cheese I could see why. I'm okay with people trying to cheese with Seraphon. Skinks have to do what they have to do to win.

    The language of the rule is certainly unspecific and rules as written should allow for each Slann within range to effect the EotGs. I think most TOs I know would rule against though.

    Imo you cannot, but for a different reason.
    The first Slann manipulates the engine. It is written that you roll an additional dice and before adding them together you discard one.
    When you discard a dice, the other ones are added together (it's a part of the same course of action) so there's no room for another roll by a second Slann.
