All Enemies subtract 1 from their die roll during daylight and add 1 to their die roll during darkness!

Ell.

 

 

Indeed.

Cool addition to the game, or not Elliot

Maybe the character with the shovel is a Graverobber instead of a Gravedigger.

It's so funny.

Everytime if i look to the gravekeeper, i must think about Dampé the gravekeeper.

Maybe some of you know him from the OOT series

 

Anyway, i wonder what for abilities he has...

It won't be the Heart pounding digging tour at least Digging for lives!

The expansion looks awesome.

Unfortunately we have to wait until October for the German edtion of "The Dragon", so this one is probably for 2013.

I am still wondering what that character is with the flail.

Does anyone from you remember Mad Max 2.

     

He has the same sort of costume as the one on the Blood Moon cover.

 A nice surprise, was expecting a small box expansion though not this theme. Any ideas about release date, based on previous announcement patterns?

It will probably be released in the end of May.

Usually 2-3 months from announcement to release.  The last couple were both 3 months, so I would guess June.

John Goodenough has uploaded the front cover and the back cover on boardgamegeek! 

 

Awesome!

Cool artwork

What do i see:

- A flying witch on a broom

-A female doll

- a sort of frankenstein creature 

- a sort of swamp creature

- Pharaoh Mummy !

- Dragons

- Wolves

- Pumpkin

- giant hand

- a Night creature on a wagon

And many more!

 

PS: I see also a new type card with a wolf . I think it's the Lycanthrope card.

I also remember from the 2nd edition the Halloween adventure card with a pumpkin illustration.

That's right.

It could be that giant pumpkin on the back cover

I hope that the Band of Zombies is also included.

Halloween

 I might be missing something but I thought that the character with the morning star was an orc.

 

It all looks great and very similar to something I was planning. Looking forward to it.

I hope that the werewolf figure is more active than the reaper

Run for your lives!

If we add the Blood Moon expansion to our collection then we have 485 adventure cards for the mainboard!    (excluding the dragon expansion)

This is what I was thinking of when I said that the character with the morning star could be an Orc.

This is by Ian McCaig and featured in Deathtrap Dungeon, a Fighting Fantasy book. (The series is 30 years old this year !!)

 

The artist you may know from his work on Star Wars amongst other things... 

 

Orc by Ian McCaig

That's pretty close indeed. It has the same haircut and the morning star.

I have the Deathtrap Dungeon book 

The Fighting Fantasy books are awesome.

I have it also as a game on a ps 1, but never play it  

Anyway, the artwork is great!

 

PS: Do you own the book too?

Oh yes, I have the book from when it first came out in 1984. Not sure where it is at the moment, probably in a box somewhere. 

I had all the ones from that year but then they all went a bit sci-fi and I prefered my FF to be nore D&D based. Talisman of Death I think

was the last one I had apart from the return to the Deathtrap Dungeon (which was not as good if I remember)

They are bringing out a new one to celebrate 30 years. I think is is about Zombies.

I even have Deathtrap Dungeon on my iPad and just played it and got through. I remembered the path from 28 years ago! Can't remember what I was doing last week mind.

 

Always thought there was quite a bit of crossover with FF and Talisman. In particular the artwork which attracted me in both cases.

Anyway, veering wildly off-topic so will close by saying I bet that is an Orc we are getting in Blood Moon. And I am always right. ;-)

 Forgot I was going to mention I still have issues of Warlock magazine and "Out of the Pit" and "Titan" which were  reference books for FF.

Those are right here on the bookshelf.
