    So the full spoiler for the first pack is out and oh boy that Scorpion card...

    While racing light mechs, your Urbanmech comes in second place, but only because it ran out of ammo.

    Maze of Illusion gives the Scorpion a second chance to manipulate their dial as needed. Dang.

    And a confirmation of the Mantis Clan's theme -- Fate Generation.

    Jeez. He's a heavy hitter, but... imagine just passing an entire turn and slamming into your opponent with 8+ fate available, and ways to make him available again.

    Yeah, I'm definitely thinking of rolling him into town with Yurts, to generate all that fun bonus fate. Maybe some Gaijin Customs, too, to unbow and swing again since apparently a Unicorn stronghold counts as a Unicorn card being in play for it.

    Charge also feels good with him.

    Choose to go first.
    Pass for fate.
    Play Wayfinder.
    Declared Military conflict.
    Charge in 9/9 Yoritomo.
    Attach Reprieve.
    Play Gaijin Customs to ready Yoritomo.

    I need to read cards better.

    I've been using Talisman of the Sun to lure people to Endless plains. Turns out it doesn't work, as the reaction only fires when a conflict is declared there.

    I only learned this thanks to the new holding we are getting.

    The Tempests and Tides fiction is pretty good. Yoritomo is super ambitious.

    I am debating if I should make or recover a reddit login. They are discussing Altansarnai, and everyone is missing important stuff with her. Not that it makes her equal to the other champions, but the fact that she doesn't need to be ready to bank someone is definitely a plus if you do movement shenanigans.

    But I still feel she got merged late, which is a shame.

    Yeah both those Crane cards are very good. Noble Sacrifice ACTIVATE. The Crab berserker is also pretty great I think.

  • AthenorAthenor Who needs lions when you have a battlecruiser? Registered User regular
    At first I read the Crab Berserker and was like "eh, big deal, I can bring characters into a combat all the time without sacrificing anything!"

    Then I remembered I play Unicorn and that's a defining characteristic of my clan, and said card was a dynasty card. And it dawned on me that other clans might not have the kind of post-declaration mobility I do. :D

    I own this core set and I really wanna try it, but I don’t think I know anyone hardcore enough to get into it

    I’ve already exhausting my girlfriend enough asking her to play Netrunner

    I guess I’ll play a game against myself to try and learn it? Would that even work?

    Sure- I do this and honestly enjoy it. It's a fun way to learn the game and just appreciate the art/card interactions in general. You just have to try to remain objective when playing both sides. Also - there's one step where you "gamble" a resource called honor against the opponent. That's a little harder to simulate - I've typically just either picked the same number for both sides (1 or 2) - or, pick one for yourself and roll a D6 for the other. If you roll a 6, just roll again (since 5 is the highest).

    I think I might just give up and play Scorpion.

    Maaan, I got wrecked tonight. Dragon with crab splash, the best player in our local meta. Was able to get 2-3 fate on the Doomed Shugenja off me, by forcing me to break one of his provinces by putting an Ornate Fan on my character.

    It.. just... damn. I am such a newbie.

    Feast or Famine, the most busted of provinces!

    Yeah. It suddenly makes me not want to put out more than 1 fate on a character, and yet at the same time, Unicorn does well keeping a built up board presence and some of our cards really should stick around. What's really annoying is that he pulled the fate from someone not participating in the conflict.

    Yeah, it's a stupid good province, because it's very poorly designed. Very surprised it didn't make it on the latest restricted list, but FFG seems to want to have powerful provinces in the game.

    Imagine a world where there was a separate province restricted list with Feast or Famine, Secret Cache, Shameful Display, Kuroi Mori, and Restoration of Balance! I mean, aside from ruining the current Dragon lineup, it might force some different provinces to be played and probably be better for the game. A large reason why Scorpion and Dragon are doing so well right now is their province row.

    It is restricted to seeker/keeper of fire.

    Is there any clan where it wouldn't be bonkers good in? Because maybe it will self-balance when the roles change, though I somehow doubt it.

    Finally got to play some of this, and I really like it

    I'm a little bugged by soooooo many dang tokens, though

    Particularly the honor ones, I get why fate needs to be tokens because they move around the board onto the cards, but I couldn't help but feel like honor would be best tracked as a dial rather than just a pile of stuff

    Fortunately, someone on Etsy agreed with me!
