Clan Pack Spoilers - Lion and Crab

Recommended Posts

Letter seems amazing to me, comparable to Blightning in MtG (though maybe that'd be more like loses 2 honor and discards 2 cards). Retreat really feels like it should cost 0 for taking a card in your hand. Also seems like it 'should' be a lion card, but at least it has lion on the art.

I don't know who you guys assassinated, but Lion gets no respect from FFG.

Iwasaki pupil's probably the most interesting of this bunch. This is the card that will give crane honor decks a boost towards viability. Cutting down the card discrepancy between low bids and high bids will help them not fall so far behind. It feels like it should be a conflict card, but I guess they didn't want to bring up the fact that you'd always miss the draw phase the turn you play it like that.

Iwasaki pupil is pretty amazing. For one cost we see the effect lion pay 4 for in Kage. 

Also regret would cost 2 if it were lion. We have Tsuko now so all events  must cost 2 more fate, it’s the FFG way.

Well, here's the announcement for the Crab pack:

If my counting is right, we currently know of more cards from the Crab pack than the Lion one!

I like that the unique Crane is someone we've seen before, even if only briefly.

 

Does it count though when 3 of those cards are 1x copies that are just different parts of the wall? 😛

Even it you only count the three wall cards as 1 card they still previewed 7 Crab and only 6 Lion cards so far.

All I know is that we’re getting more mouse-men cards.  That’s a 100% win in my book.  #Redwalloftheeast

I just saw that the Crab pack is actually numbered L5C26 and the Lion pack is L5C27. 🤯 Wouldn't that mean the Crab one gets released first, thereby explaining the increase in previews?

The release schedule of the packs was shifted around, to have them all release much quicker then originally intended. This is surely a remnant of the original release schedule.

Since the last pack in the Inheritance Cycle is labeled L5C24, and the Crab- and Lion Clan Packs are L5C26 and -27, that should mean that the Dragon Clan Pack is L5C25, right?

Good catch about L5C25 -- I had missed that! 

I didn't think the schedule acceleration would amount to a reshuffle with confusing catalog numbers (which I use myself to track what I own and what I expect in the coming weeks). 

But it does seem to be what's happening. It looks like the Dragon pack will effectively be the last one to be released, but then they already announced the accompanying novella. This would fit with the initial schedule hinted at by these LC5 numbers. It's just not what we'll be getting in the end.

Seekers of Wisdom (L5C25) was next in line to be previewed but FFG switched the order. Also there was no Crane Clan novella with the Masters of Court release.
