Latari Elves confirmed as third playable faction

Recommended Posts

Matt Nott/Toqtamish just posted some pictures from GenCon on facebook and one of them is quite interesting:

Apparently, Kari Wraithstalker enables Human players to incude one Latari Elves unit. Since Kari is a release unit, I guess we won't have to wait very long until they are released; perhaps even Wave 0 ;).

I doubt wave 0 myself. Probably wave one and or some sort of deluxe for the Elves.

I can't take credit for the photos. Just searched FB and added them to the group after saving them to my iPad for upload.

He who raids the photos from ancient facebook tombs deserves credit ;).

My guess Wave 1 Latari and Uthuk starters

 

Wave 2 Dwarf and Orc starters

 

then one unit for each faction per wave after.

That would be PERFECT!!

 

But I highly doubt it. My guess is they will up army count to 4 quite fast and then concentrate on fleshing these out before releasing more factions (if at all). I seriously doubt there will be six playable factions mid-2017.

Great find and great news too.  

You bet - I really look forward to including a unit of elven archers in my army. With the elven disposition to archery, I wouldn't be surprised if they got to choose between low-initiative and high-initiative shots just like other units with their melee attacks which would be seriously interesting :).

Kari's a new char, right? I can't help but wonder about the fluff reason behind this ability of hers. Ought to make for some nice lore titbits.

 

Anyway, yay, elves! They better do a parallel RW and BL release for them. *not sure whether in denial or not*

She looks kinda Elfish. Could be she is an Elf or Half Elf. Elves do live in the Free Cities too.

Could be friends to elves, lifed there, half elve or soemthing like that, could be a nice story.

I think it's more likely for them to release the Uthuk first before the dwarves and orcs. My impression is they are one of the movers and shakers of the universe.

My thoughts exactly.

Agreed. And I doubt there's much doubt about this.

This is an interesting move. Assuming elves have an archer unit, and assuming elves are released before any new human stuff we haven't seen yet, her ability will give the Daqan faction a way to muster archers before having their own archers released. The developers can take their time with Daqan archers because they're covered for the moment.

If FFG is hoping this game takes off then they have to be thinking what are the different options for players.

 

We know in Runewars there are

 

Daqan (Humans)

 

Waiqar (Undead)

 

Latari (elves)

 

Uthuk (Demon Dudes)

 

Orcs 

 

Dwarves

 

Mercenaries

 

In that alone there are a lot of options that could be offered, and even within those factions we have seen hints at specializations or troop configuration options that would translate well into a MINI Table Top game. They have solid lore and IP To work from. Lets hope they present it in a way that keeps us interested and coming back for more.

I really hope Dwarves end up being their own faction. I want an army of dwarves armed to the teeth and filthy.

If they come to this game they will. Dwarves of Dunwarr are their own nation. Dwarves do live in some of the Human cities too.

I'm really hoping they put out a book covering this world they've created.

 

I liked what they did with the Worlds of Android book and I can see this working as well.

 

Give people the chance to know more about this as you start releasing more down the line.

Most of us fully expect exactly that after their announcement of more Worlds books during GenCon In Flight report.

I want to see the Panther riding chick elves for this game. For sure.

 

Do you mean panther-riding?  Because that hyphen is important in that particular sentence, especially since you capitalized panther.  Without it, it just sounds well...just read it without it and you will see what I mean. 

 

Dirty.
