Well, the first magic POD has been released... and missed my group. I mean, I'll get it anyway and I know the chances of them choosing Celestial Magic (which is what my group is fielding) was slim but I was really hoping on getting lucky.

It was the POD expansion I expected. Since Sigmar came first, Bright Order Magic was my guess for the second expansion (allthough I was wrong as Dreadfleet came in between).

Now my guess is that the next will be a priestly expansion, and I guess that it will be Shallya. After that we'll probably see another magic POD with one of the other collages of magic that were included in the core set.

Fun though, I'll pick Bright Order Magic up as soon as my retailers get it.. :)

I admit I hadn't been thinking Bright Order but in retrospect with Sigmar first, it makes sense.

I'm just pleased to see it and hope they keep producing (good quality, play tested, edit-checked) POD bits for all niches.

I end up ordering them, my local retailers get the POD's for boardgames (Mansions of Madness) but not for WFRP it seems.

I'll definitely get it, I tend to buy most things for this game as I love the system.

I'm not too happy that they keep focusing on magic and prayers though, since the game does not lack actions for those groups compared to most other types of actions.

I too hope they come out with packages on other themes or combining them such as a dual "Ranald priest pack" with a "follower of Ranald" merchant/rogue support etc. action pack.

Based on picture from the announcement, it seem like a few card is dedicated to special rule / flavoring text maybe? Those card in lower left hand doen't seem like just spell cards.

They look similar to the cards that came in Faith of Sigmar which condensed some of the rules from various supplements.

Well, my copy showed up. I think I was more impressed with Faith of Sigmar, though. There are a number of neat spells here, and they're probably fun in play… there's a lot of synergy stuff with adding and removing tracking tokens and some neat ongoing effects. I think my favorites are the ones that conjure a wall of flame and the curtain of flame. Those were neat effects that I hadn't seen before. There were not a lot of differences between the recklass and conservative sides, but that might be because they assume a Bright Order Mage is going to be in Reckless so there isn't much of a point. But there does seem to be plenty, well, fire-power, for a combat oriented mage.

 I just ordered this and the Dreadfleet packs. Only did that cause I noticed shipping doesn't go up when you order them all at the same time. I already got the Sigmar pack from ebay but now that I know about shipping costs I'll probably wait for the next 3 POD's to come out and order them all at once.
