I was thinking, what do people think about the possibility of getting multiple versions of the Affiliations over the course of the game? Not different Affiliations, but ones with different stats.
It's something they're doing in Netrunner, with multiple versions of the various Identity cards for each faction. But there's more going on on an Identity card. The card determines what your minimum deck size is, how much influence (which is used for out-of-faction cards) you have in building your deck, and each Identity gets a special ability, like reducing the cost of the first card of specific type each turn or damaging the opponent when you perform certain tasks.
The Affiliation cards don't have nearly as much going on; they're much more like the House cards in A Game of Thrones, which generally don't really DO anything, they just establish which faction you are and provide you with a list of the phases in the game. But the Affiliation cards do provide two important stats: they all provide 1 resource and establish our starting reserves at 6 cards. It's the fact they include that "Starting Reserve: 6" I find the most interesting, as they could have easily left that off and just trusted us to know that we all get 6 cards to start with. It could just be FFG being user-friendly, providing as much pertinent information as they can on the Affiliation cards, but it could also be that they're leaving themselves design room to someday alter that number.
Would people be interested in seeing something like that? An Affiliation that provided more resources, at the cost of a smaller hand, or a larger hand at the cost of not having resources on your Affiliation card? Alternately, they could go a step further and add additional conditions, like smaller or larger decks.
