Where in Philly are you? I'm in central NJ, but have family in Philly. My son (a former World and National champion) lives in Newark, DE.

There's a game store in Hamilton, NJ that I go to, but unfortunately I haven't been able to convince the owner to stock Dragon Dice™. Still, they have open gaming nights, so maybe one week we could meet up there. My kids (ages 18-26) all play as well, so I might be able to get together a group.

1. what is the rule on how many of each die can you use?
in a 36 point army.

The only restriction on number of dice is that only half can be a magic producing die. i.e. a die that has a magic or cantrip icon on it.

There used to be an additional rule limiting Eldarim champions, but that was removed a while ago.

2. are there any dice restricted to 1 or banned.

The only dice that are banned are production misprints. those are very rare.

3. can i play a game with 9, 4 health dice?

YES!

4. is the dracolich a dragon?

No, dragons are 12 sided dice. the dracolich is a ten sided dice and thus is a monster.

5. i have a full set of undead can you help me build a team?

'full set' is a very loaded term. To some it means one of each of the 20 dice in that race, to some it means 36 (or 60) health of each of the 20 dice in that race.

That is a strategy question and there is no perfect answer. Each player has their own style and that a passive player can not usually an aggressive army as effectively as someone else. The army construction is the first part, but how you play with them is equally important.

However, there are some themes in how you can approach building an army that works for you. Choose how you are going to achieve a victory condition. This is most important, don't just do things, always move towards victory. Choose two things you want your army to be good at: saving, melee, missile, maneuver, magic. Choose if you want to have consistent results or if you want more chaotic results that can be higher or lower than the average. Choose if you want to be VERY good at something at the expense of being VERY bad at something else or do you want to do all things equally. Those decisions will lead you to use certain dice over another.

Then play against as many people as you can to learn what your weaknesses are and how you might tweak a die or here there to help.
