    Tomorrows News

    I'd love to see a deluxe box dedicated to the Mantis , bringing them up to the same number of cards available to other clans by the end of the second cycle and first two Clan Packs. Going forward after that, I'd like to see them get the same support as the other seven factions.
  3. No problem - your well-reasoned response definitely presented a logical conclusion, and just because Tyler ruled it the other way doesn't mean you are wrong
  4. " It does not matter whose dial is higher, so long as they are different. You are correct that if you and your opponent bid 1-5 (in either direction) the difference is 4 and the character’s skill will be reduced accordingly. ~Tyler Parrott Card Game Developer Fantasy Flight Games tparrott@fantasyflightgames.com "
  5. If I bid five and you bid one, the difference is four. If I bid one and you bid five, the difference is four. I'm not seeing any reason why those two situations wouldn't both trigger the penalty.

    Help with core set

    If you to Fiveringsdb, you can select 'one core' from the Packs option, and that should give you the information.
  7. I stayed at the Radisson last year and it was fine. If anyone does decide to stay there, don't book a room via an online site though...call them directly and ask for the FFG World Championships block rate. It should save you about 20% on the price. As for flying solo, there's a lot of gamers in an area with table space and refreshments! There's usually friendly games going on, and it's easy to make new friends. If you're worried about being Jonny No Friends, you're welcome to hang out with us when it's time to get food and kick back, but I'm sure you'll be fine.
  8. Good to know - when I filled in the form for my reserved seat, I didn't have to pay straight away...got a follow up email a few weeks later and bought it then. Did you decide to go? The prize support is amazing, and last year was an awesome experience. It's definitely something I'd recommend, if your funds and schedule allow it.
  9. There are less games this year without Netrunner, so hopefully that translates into more space for everything else. If I remember correctly, you have until October 1st to put in for a ticket, do it's definitely worth doing it just in case - you still have to actually purchase the ticket if you're selected, and can always choose not to go at that point if you so wish.

    Elemental Meta

    Can you point out where any of the cards on the Restricted List actually say that on the card, please?

    Elemental Meta

    Said this before, but the cleanest and most effective way to deal with Hawk Tattoo is to just add an RRG entry for Tattoos that states "Unless the card states otherwise, a Tattoo can only be played on characters you own." This gets HT back in line, and leaves design space for future cards to contain the necessary qualifier.

    The Pinnacle of Power

    I was pretty sure I was going to be playing Kyuden Bayushi at Worlds anyway (because Aramoro), but this really helps solidify it. Love that these cards are meh for existing decks and instead promote a new deck archetype (one that, if it wants to run heavy-hitters like the Whisperers, actually has a choice to make about what RL card it plays). Yes, it almost certainly isn't going to be as overtly powerful as 'classic' Scorpion is, but it provides variety and options, which is a good thing. Stoked.

    Leb NH Sept 8th - special tournament

    One week today is the charity L5R event at Black Moon Games in Lebanon NH, which will begin with my head being shaved. You can find details of why I'm cutting all my hair off (and make a donation to that campaign if you like!) here: https://www.gofundme.com/e8qnkv-hair-today-gone-tomorrow Entry to this event is by donation of $5 or more (there is an incentive to pay more than $5...see below!). All money collected from entrance fees will be donated to the Jesse Carpenter GoFundMe campaign which is raising to help with medical expenses for a hugely popular member of the AGoT LCG community. You can find details of that campaign here: https://www.gofundme.com/support-of-the-people-for-jesse I'd like to talk about the prize support on offer! Please note that not all prize support is in these pictures - we have even more to give away that's currently not close enough to photograph. Everyone taking part will receive, while stocks last, a full art Wandering Ronin, a full art Asha Greyjoy from the Game of Thrones LCG, and a FULL ART MARAUDING ONI! The top four will each win a play mat, with first place choosing first and so on. The runner-up will also get an acrylic 'Imperial' Favor, while the winner will receive that Favor plus a set of the seven Clan pins only previously available at very select events. There will also be spot prizes given away at various points during the day. But that's not all! All our remaining prize support will go on the Prize Table - this includes extra copies of many of the items named above, along with sets of Clan dice, sets of plastic Clan mons, cool Honored/Dishonored tokens, a copy of the Matter of Honor LtP CCG set, Fate tokens, and more. At the end of the tournament, starting with the player who paid the highest entry fee, players will be called up one at a time and allowed to select an item from the table! This process will repeat until ALL our fantastic prize support has been given away. Please give generously to a great cause, and score cool bling for doing so! If anyone has anything else they'd like to throw in to the prize pool, please feel free to bring it along. I'd like to thank the following people and companies for their support and/or donations: Black Moon Games Drew Baker Charles Derby Caleb Foster Frank Kallal Fantasy Flight Games Gardner Game Knights ...and anyone else I'm forgetting. Hope to see folks there!
