    Monday Preview - Mysterious Gentlemen

    Alt Belles are possible, but another possibility I raised on FB: " An interesting possibility might be Malifaux upper-class citizens who see undeath as either a trendy affectation or a way to beat the reaper, and have the means to either buy the materials themselves or hire someone to "do the deed" as it were? "

    Monday Preview - Mysterious Gentlemen

    I'm wondering if they might have either of the Midnight Stalker's two passives - penalizing attacking him until he's attacked, and not being able to attack already-activated models. Might go with the same upper-class nature?

    Thanks for everything Aaron! (Especially buffing Ten Thunders).

    March Newsletter

    TOS has already also been delayed twice - once from December 2017 to this March, then again to April. It's just a ton of work overall and it's not a purposefully delayed schedule. I imagine once they get the Kickstarter orders out the door that life will get a little easier. Hopefully we'll hear another update on delivery soon, even if it's to alert us to another delay.

    March Newsletter

    Doubtful. Wyrd has stated their intention to not do pre-releases anymore except in limited capacity at Gencon, and regular releases only make their way to the webstore 1-2 months after they become available to brick 'n mortar stores.

    Loving Gremlin Bob Ross, but sad to see that Undying seems to have vanished :(
  7. I'm actually a little miffed since I had an idea for 10T Saboteurs, down to the blowing up scheme markers Still though, these look awesome and I'm looking forward to getting the box.

    Maybe they're opening the forum tomorrow?

    Allies Gaining Glory

    I believe that each faction has a special sublist of rules when being brought in via allying. It brings *some* but not all of their home faction's rules, but one of the rules they do bring is their native glory rule. So for example if you brought some Hordes with Horo into what is nominally a Burning Man force, you don't get to benefit from all the rules you'd get if you were running a nominally Hordes force, but one thing you do get is the Hordes models getting to eat stuff for Glory. It's been a while since I read the blurb about allying stuff though, so maybe someone will correct me.

    February Chronicles

    Well, what I was trying to get at was that simple mention of fluid/soulstone trade seems like it'd be bait enough, but the way it was written took it to ridiculous extremes beyond my ability to swallow, with constant harping on what they're doing is illegal. If I saw a cup game coming up on the sidewalk and I walked by two men loudly discussing how to beat the cup game, I would not think "golly, now I can go win some money!" I would think "associates trying to round up marks". The fact the guardsman opted to follow them even after reflecting on how ridiculous the conversation was, makes him an idiot rather than a tragic figure. EDIT: To be clear, I don't dispute the "bait" nature of the conversation. I'm saying that the way the conversation as currently written is extremely obvious and poor bait, and doesn't serve the rest of the story (which I liked) well.
  11. For the second book onwards, some of them have custom scenarios but they're not essential. They're mostly fluff/card list repositories. The exception is the third book, Shifting Loyalities, which contains rules for the campaign system. The campaign system is pretty fun if your shop runs it, and while you may have someone there who will let you use it while necessary, it's a solid buy if you want to do the campaign system.

    February Chronicles

    Overall I liked this issue of Chronicles, but one of the stories really stuck in my craw Specifically, Gift Kentauroi. It started off very well with the Guardsmen trudging along, and the ending third was well executed (especially him lost and wandering, being funneled down hallways by the sounds of things best left unmentioned). The part I took issue with was him listening in on the alleyway conversation. I really feel like the mention of soulstones and embalming fluid by themselves should have piqued his interest, especially since both are described as highly regulated in trade. The whole repetition of "ILLEGAL ILLICIT ILLEGAL UNDERHANDED" felt super-contrived, and by itself turned the protagonist from "an up and comer whose ambition led to his downfall" to "a credulous idiot who got everything he had coming". I think it would have gone much better with the two alleyway conversationalists playing it straight. I actually didn't mind the orange cloak - it wasn't obviously the kind of elbow in the ribs that the conversation was, and provided a useful story tool for the protagonist to follow.

    Friday Preview - Twisted Horrors

    This is why I'm keeping my eyes on the Kickstarter progress, I have a hunch I'll really enjoy it once I finally sink my teeth into it.
  14. Thinking ahead to my February purchases, what's the current sentiment on Rogue Necromancy hiring? Right now I'm in possession of Molly/Tara/Kirai with Nicodem still on sprue, and while I think the model is cool, I can't really see a spot for it that isn't currently occupied by something else (students, Killjoy, Izamu). I'm thinking about getting Dr. Dufresque if she goes on sale like the other previous sale models were available Black Friday, and I could see the RN upgrade being funny with melee monster McMourning for even more zipping around the board, but other than that, I got nothing. Any suggestions that will help me justify a purchase?

    Monday Preview - The Undying

    That is true, but I was speaking more in the context of the quoted post which seemed to speculate on Yan Lo being able to bring Belle lures over into 10T (poor Oiran), warning against assuming that there was going to be a ton of bringing stuff across faction lines and getting new bonkers interactions. For sure it's sounding like it'll be a nice booster pack for either faction choice in general. Just not the same shot in the arm that mass handing out of Retainer would bring.

    Monday Preview - The Undying

    That's reliant on all of the Rezzers having the Retainer ability, though. Strong bet that Manos does given the mention of Chi, but Mourners look more like the Belle aesthetic than a Retainer aesthetic if that makes any sense. Not to mention whatever the hell that big thing is. They just don't feel enough like something that would be close pals with Yan Lo. I'd say an additional component to the argument is that the Wanyudo and Katashiro both don't seem to fit the Retainer profile as well. It's likely to be a nice perk to Yan Lo if Manos has Retainer, not a reflection of the overall box being "GET YOUR YAN LO SUPERCHARGE PACK RIIIIIGHT HERE" (Although I would not mind such a thing )

    Monday Preview - The Undying

    I preordered this as soon as I could after hearing about it I enjoy both 10T and Rezzers so it's all for me! All of it! Although with difficulties in getting December and January releases to my local store from the distributor, I hope I can get it in March proper

    Branded bags & shaped foam trays?

    I wouldn't mind them reaching out to K&R Multicase as well.

    Branded bags & shaped foam trays?

    Personally I buy K&R Multicase. I've heard the Battlefoam boss has engaged in douchebag behavior before, so I buy K&R. They're nice folks and I think they should have foam to fit titans. The only thing I hate...their website...

    January 2018 Errata

    It was mentioned up-thread, but they said that caches would adjust to reflect this.

    Lelitu also has Regeneration and can always Whispers in Blood if you need to shore up her Defense. Granted it's only until EOT, but doesn't need a card, benefits WP, and boosts her Lure if you want to go Whispers + Lure route. Generally I'll take her outside of Lynch, but Beckoners in Lynch is easier to swallow.

    January 2018 Errata

    It also lost the clause to ignore damage reduction, so Armor is now a counterplay to it. I don't think the Rider change is unbalancing. Their reduction and damage tracks still take a bit to spin up, and you can use stuff like blasts and other non-targeting effects (Misery auras) to go to work on them.

    January 2018 Errata

    Looking forward to seeing how this all shakes out. I feel like Ressurectionists, Arcanists, and Guild benefited the most from the cost reductions, though I am happy to see a reduction on Thunder Archers, which I felt they needed. I think a few models in that list (Guild Guard, Desperate Mercenaries) might have benefited from either poking at other numbers on their card or non-number text, but overall I think it'll help to try and balance cost around power rather than power around cost for that many models.

    Tsk tsk Kimberly, "Yarazi" and you did not reach for the owl duo of "Orazi?" "Yarazi!"?
