Well, I'm excited beyond reason and feel we'll have much to talk about. Does anyone remember the character sheets that came with a 2nd Edition expansion? They were about 8.5 by 11 inches and had areas to place your gold, strength, craft counters, as well as space to line up your various objects or followers?
I'm hoping to find mine in some long forgotten bin in the basement or where ever, as I think they would be helpful for organizing the players' areas especially now with all the new stuff coming in Woodland.
Since they mention gaining a Destiny card can transport you to a Runes space, I am thinking there is at least one Runes space on the Woodlands board, but you could teleport to any of the ones in the Middle region too. I like this because there are several characters or situations that also teleport to spaces that are not limited to one board (Hills space(s) in the Highlands, and now Firelands ' terrain changing to Woods, Forest, etc.). I am a strong proponent of these teleportation opportunities.
For those who use Jon/Nether Realm's suggestion of pulling nether cards on the Runes space, this opens up that other possibility for Nether stuff. And indeed, if the Woodlands represents a Faery/Fae landscape, that traditionally is removed from normal time and space, it can support the home-brewing of Nether cards beyond that expansion's immediate usage.
There is even mention of a Witch Tree, my Goddess! I always felt that some of the more obscure references, many in the Warlock Quest deck, would possibly have resonance, actual presence, in later additions, so I am curious about this and other Woodland things. Will it be an actual space, or an Encounter 'place' card. I'm sure we'll find out.
Well, I could babble forever, but finally I wonder if King Oberon and Queen Titania are characters or some sort of NPC thing. The reason I say this is because 2 of the plastic figures could possibly be The King and Queen of Elfhame. The obvious female and the tall male with a staff and cloven feet, it appears?
Does anyone have a different idea with that?
