    On a whim, I was bored this weekend and started reading the fiction in the core set then first cycle inserts. To my delight, I find it really fun.

    So, today I discover that there is also fiction on FFG’s site. Am I correct in understanding this is also canon and not printed elsewhere?

    Is everything intended to be read chronologically from publish on website / pack release date?

    Yes. I believe there was a compilation pdf released for the Imperial cycle at some point as well, and there is a master list on the official forums.

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

    Yup. All the fiction is cumulative. It will often reference where it is in the story.

    Ooh. Read the tea leaves time.

    https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2018/8/22/sun-and-shadows/

    Short summary:

    Product to be announced on October 10th is neither a new cycle or a clan pack. Something new.

    The next two clan packs are slated for Unicorn and Crane!

    And all the remaining clan packs are slated to be out before the end of 2019.

    I would assume a proper deluxe.

    I am hoping for a story box like Terminal Directive.

    Obviously it should be a Mantis Faction Pack, with a stronghold and dynasty/conflict cards.

    However much I enjoy doing mercenary work for the Uni right now... the boss is calling...

    Finally. The card back art is beautiful and I hate covering it up with some flat color like I’ve been doing. I would also accept faction specific icons or scenes.

    I am amazed. This is exactly what I wanted them to make but didn't think they ever would!

    I hope they are getting better about this kind of thing. Netrunner never got them officially, though at its height another company made ones very close. But now, we're seeing things like playmats for upcoming games.

    Speaking of support, I finally got ahold of the Honored Duel mat. It's bigger than I expected! But, at the same time, it's got a strange printing error on it. A roller screwed up, so it has a couple smear lines. But... it almost looks like it is part of the design! I had to double and triple check it. The lady at the store couldn't exchange it for me (she works for FFG customer support as well), but she did say they'll help out once they get more in stock.
