  1. The Return to the Forgotten Age is supposed to come out on the 7th of August... And the Starter Decks are supposed to come out at the end of august (probably the 28th).
  2. It's just as much content as was in the original game.
  3. I think that Cosmic Encounters: Duel will actually be more popular because it requires only two players. And there are a lot of couples that are quarantined together.
  4. I wonder what are the other livestreams that is listed at the end of the announcement. I'm sure they're not going to be showing off brand new products but they might be showing off already announced things.
  5. Mine just shipped as well! I'm really excited to have him in my collection at last!
  6. A looks to be a LOT easier. A is 1 cultist, and 2 tablets. B is 2 skulls, 1 cultist, and 2 elder things. So therefore in Guardians... With the A bag the cultist makes you draw another token, and the tablet is a 0/-1.... With the B bag... The skull is -X (strength of the abyss), cultist makes your draw another token, and the two elder things are a -5/-4. A is certainly a LOT easier than B in this front. That might make it much more doable as level zero characters.
  7. I'm about ready to start the dreamlands with two friends who will be playing the other half of the campaign separate from us. So, I was considering doing the same thing that you were doing before we plunged into it. Your advice is certainly valuable. Which bag were you using? Campaign A or B?
  8. I've heard those are really hard scenarios. How were they with level zero characters?
  9. I love coming up with thematic reasons why I continue past something awful. <Blob Spoilers> I played The Blob inserted into The Forgotten Age after Calvin died... And I used it as a flashback to when Mateo (the new investigator) and Ursula had met. However we ended up losing the scenario... Which then caused us to lose the campaign... So instead we said that The Blob ate our memory of that scenario... But losing the memory was so horrible that we took 1 trauma and lost 3 xp... (our actual outcome from the scenario minus the losing the whole campaign.) And since it was already just a memory we justified it that way. </Blob Spoilers> Mateo: "Hey Ursula remember when we met?" Ursula cringes and shakes involuntarily at the utter horror of the absent memory Ursula: "No, do you?" Mateo: "I don't either, but I have this scar and a limp that has to have come from somewhere." Ursula: "Odd." Mateo: "Perhaps it is better that we don't speak about it." Ursula: "That's probably for the best." Or perhaps if you replay a scenario... Suddenly you're back before the scenario... "Yup. That doesn't sound like a terrible plan. Let's do it differently."
  10. I would love a neutral Charlie Kane. I bet they'll start including parallel investigators in the main expansions eventually.
  11. I ended up printing out my own mat with the Eager for Death artwork.
  12. They're both REALLY different. And I would say that they're both harder than Carcosa or Dunwich. The Forgotten Age's gameplay is punishing and doles out a LOT of trauma. Its story is a really great adventure type with some time travel horror thrown in. The Circle Undone's gameplay has a lot of punishing encounter cards with several of them stacking in your play area. Its story is DARK and is more conspiratorial and more of a mystery that you have to puzzle out yourself.
  13. Most of the gators aren't cycle specific. So you can include any gator in any expansion. So, these decks can work with ANY and ALL expansions so far released! Also they contain upgrade cards so you don't even need any other players cards!
  14. I think that last years April Fools was good enough to last two years. I was really hoping that they'd do a surprise release of Barkham yesterday. That would have been incredible. 🙂
  15. We're getting a full announcement on the 30th! A mere month away! "We’ve teased the game’s upcoming deluxe expansion, which kicks off its sixth campaign, The Innsmouth Conspiracy—and now it’s time to sit down with developers Matt Newman and Jeremy Zwirn and show off some of what you can expect in one of the strangest campaigns yet.
  16. In the livestream they said that each deck is about 80% new cards. And that there will be duplicates of all of the new cards.
  17. Probably what the currently available apps do. Campaign tracking and making the guides more easiliy available. Deck-building and storing your decks interfacing with ArkhamDB.
  18. We've already had one Guardian who was more of a support character in Carolyn Fern. It's possible they'll do something similar with him... But I'd be willing to bet they'll try to mix it up a bit more than just Carolyn but for healing health.
  19. I VERY much doubt that. As they've said several times. The taboo is optional. Did you happen to notice they posted this recently? https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/4b/71/4b71c6d8-0317-4a25-afd8-044f379bf970/taboos_17-compressed.pdf
  20. I had a great idea! So, if they include cards from the core set we might be getting second copies of the cards we only got singles of in the core. If they release enough investigators this might negate the need for buying a second core set altogether!
  21. I would guess Guardian/Rouge as well... Perhaps restricted to No Firearms? I think his signatures will be boxing gloves. And his weakness will be something about taking the fall or failing to take the fall in a fight.
  22. I'm in the mid-west and my girlfriend works as an ICU/Rapid Response Nurse. She's really concerned about how quickly this might overload the hospitals and how much she is going to exposed to it. Since she is going to be constantly exposed to it she might not get to be outside of self-quarantine for over a year. And almost certainly won't be able to see her elderly grandparents for that long. Additionally my weekly running group has canceled our runs for a few weeks and we don't know when or if we'll be able to start it back up again. Since we all run usually pretty close together and enjoy taking walking breaks to talk and socialize. I normally play Arkham with my girlfriend at least once a month and we have another couple from the running group that we play with about once a month as well. But that looks like we're not going to be able to continue that or be able to see each other very often at all. I'm trying to get tabletop simulator working for her... but her internet connection is VERY slow due to her living out of city limits. I'm going to try to learn OCTGN to see if I can get that to work with her internet but I'm not optimistic about it. And it almost feels like I won't be able to play with her for over a year.
  23. I know one barrier for me bringing new people into the game is asking them to build decks. It can certainly be an overwhelming proposition at first. And with these decks being pre-made they might be better than the original starter decks. I'd be willing to bet that they'll incorporate cards from the core set into the deck to allow them to fit more new cards into the pack. There was a guy who works in translation who dropped a hint about the packs... He couldn't say more but the idea of it not being against the campaign nature of the game lends me to think that there will be a scenario included with the pre-built deck. JUST FIVE MORE DAYS UNTIL WE KNOW!
  24. We're checking on you @Duciris! You're acting quite unlike yourself! Making sure you're okay in these times of social separation. What's your favorite hero and villain so far?
