Cities in Ruin expansion announced!!

Recommended Posts

Oops, yes sorry for that Eldritch Tokens are called Mythos Tokens in the German version, I had some expasions in English but haven't used them since I purchased the German versions so I forgot the Englisch EH nomenclature.

no worries danke for the heads up!

Like another poster said, with the AO in this expansion requiring Eldritch Tokens on spaces and the AO sheet, it makes sense that we'd need more Eldritch Tokens in the stockpile. I think we have more health/sanity tokens and little plastic bases than we can shake a stick at!

I was excited when I saw the article went up yesterday, and then bummed when I saw that all the previews were for cards I didn't want spoiled until I actually played.  

 

Oh well... we're likely only a month from release, so that's enough for me.

Kinda wish it told us a bit more about the other investigators we know nothing about. I thought Bob would be Mr. Services, but Roland was, so I'm curious what he does (given that he sounds like a guy with high Influence)

Yeah. Maybe as a salesman he can trade assets between players wherever they are in the world, as his action.

Charlie already gets an action similar to that. And since Jenny gets a special ability in regards to Debts, I didn't think it would be that either. Unless he can roll an extra die on deals, which can make Dark Pacts/Agreements less painful.

i'm gonna assume he gets items for 1 less cost to a minimum of 1 or extra dice on deals/agreements..

something like that would make the most sense. Bob was fun to play in Arkham.

For me, it's all about Mansions. I like that, in the bio on the back of the cards, he's all "Yeah, I'm doing this for the money. Nobility costs extra."

It was nice and frank for me.

yeah weird to announce it so early then we wait a long time for delivery.

wonder if they're winding down the line?

Not unusual at all. On the boat is approximately 6 weeks with shipping another 2 or so weeks.  It's been on the boat now 6 and half weeks.  We will likely be getting an announcement in the next few days.

That was already revealed in the first preview: Bob Jenkins, Rita Young, Roland Banks, and “Ashcan” Pete.

Roland: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2017/5/8/disaster-strikes-and-the-world-burns/

 

Bob Jenkins is the one we still know nothing about.

It's going to be a few days before my copy arrives in the mail.  Anyone who went out and bought a copy right away able to post details on Bob Jenkins?  Please?

According to the wiki:

Action: You may trade any number of Item or Trinket possessions with another investigator on any space.

When you perform an Acquire Assets action, reduce the value of each card in the reserve by 1 to a minimum of 1.

Starts with a clue and a new weapon.

Hey, yeah, I'm updating the wiki now. You got any questions you wanna ask, go ahead. I'll help as best I can

I'd describe Bob as a definite all-rounder, although support is his primary duty. Being able to reduce the value of Assets is one of those abilities that's almost always useful, since Assets are almost always useful.

BTW, the Winchester Rifle (Bob's gun) is a +4 to Combat only once a turn. Only costs 2. Roland's gun (Mauser) is also value 2, +2 to combat and 1 reroll

All right, got all of the small cards and most of the large ones on the wiki.

Some interesting tasks from what I can see.

My group is meeting next weekend to break in this bad boy, but from what I can see, Shudde M'ell is a punisher. His reckoning hits a lot and disasters can cripple. I'm thinking Instill Bravery and Flesh Ward are going to be the way to go for this.
