    LGS Promotion FAQ

    They haven't listed a new promotion since December. They said we weren't getting any Q1 this year, looks like none for Q2 or Q3 either. Honestly they've been really busy lately so probably have been putting everything into their new products - M3E, TOS and Wyrdscapes. The promotions were nice but while doing them they didn't seem to have any large projects going either.

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    Even taking the Doppleganger or Trixiebelle I rarely cheated Fate even if I was losing the initiative. I took them for other reasons.

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    If you look at Cojos card from Gencon, he has an ability called Frenzied Charge, which lets him ignore the once per activation limit of Charge. The Ice Golem has Flurry, which was one per activation. After taking a melee action you can discard a card to take it again. If these are examples of what’s happening to (2) actions, it’s more about increasing player choice during a given activation rather than spending time to set it up, and increasing AP efficiency. You get the same result - you can charge and then spend your second AP attacking again, or hit a model 3 times using Flurry. But now if your second attack from Flurry or first attack from Charge kills the enemy, you have a choice of what to do next rather than having wasted AP.
  4. I would have liked to have seen a Tyrant faction, myself. There's enough that they could have made a faction out of dual faction masters like they did with Ten Thunders. Maybe even separated some entirely. They seem to be focusing on the waking Tyrants according to the fluff on the announcement page, so not having some of them them splinter off into their own faction was a little disappointing.

    Yeah, the Other Side. Matches the art.

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    Well, in 2E there were often schemes based around ss costs which got wonky around things like masters and 0ss henchmen. Maybe it’s also to combat that? Also with keyword hiring, just picking the most expensive seems like a bad choice if the rest of the crew you want will now cost even more?

    Gen Con 2018 Coverage

    So she decided to change her wardrobe when she got back to Earth to another Japanese style dress that's not a Kimono. She and Ikirio also got matching horned masks now, which I don't recall them having before.

    Gen Con 2018 Coverage

    Just didn't come across well in the orange print. In the art it's very Asian looking.

    First feelings M3E

    They’ve all been lined up for some sort of a comeback. Lilith is in Nythera after being mortally wounded. Same place Titania was. Nicodem may be dead, but he’s inside a soul stone in Mortimers keeping. Ramos is in a Guild prison on Earth. Collodi, last we saw him, was unhappy with the quality of the puppets he was making and went in search of his creators workshop. They probably won’t come back in their 2E/DMH incarnations but there’s interesting things that could be done with each of their returns.

    That's what they're doing a beta for.

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    The description posted above for Charge says ‘push this model it’s Mv’. Move says ‘this model moves up to its Mv.’ If there’s still limits on Pushes, like Flight not working during a Push like in 2E, then there’s situations where you would use Move instead. Also Charge appears to be limited to once per activation.

    The loved and the lost

    The main problem with Collodi for me was he never felt connected to the Neverborn. Granted I started with 2E so I don’t know his fluff before that. Same reason I’m fine with Lynch losing dual faction, another master I never felt was really connected to the faction.
  13. It sounds like they went with Pass tokens instead of just a pass mechanic (which TOS has) because it gives them something to use as a resource. In the information on Perdita, it says her crew can discard Pass tokens for Focus.

    10T Keyword thoughts

    Pretty sure the point of the OP is where 3rd edition is going, not where it is now. We kinda already know where everything sits right now.

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    The explanation of even amounts of masters is the most likely reason for the Dead Mans Hand. There’s no real reason to make them optional if they’re balanced, but opening up more options for select factions isn’t great for a competitive scene. Why should Neverborn get 10, Ressers and Arcanists 9 each, while the rest get 8?
  16. -Loki-

    First feelings M3E

    I see a lot of complaints about restricting options, but let’s face it, if you care about competitiveness your options were restricted anyway. There’s a reason we had what were commonly known as the Neverborn All Stars. You had the same handful of models that made up the core of most Neverborn lists, regardless of master, and other factions were no different. The majority of the faction didn’t see the table as it was. Even if we see more common models for each master but different to others due to theme, I’ll take it as a win. Better than seeing some combination of Doppleganger, Nekima, Mr Graves and Lilitu hitting the table for most lists across faction, or the ever fun ‘X new minion looks great, but it’s no Illuminated...’.

    I'm a Basse man.

    The only Guild master I have is Perdita. I like the Wild West look. If that really is Basse on that art with 3 characters and what looks suspiciously like Dashel in the middle, the badass with the coat and huge rifle, I’ll very likely have a second Guild crew.

    First feelings M3E

    I’m enthusiastic. I never really played Collodi and was never interested enough to even buy Lynch. Losing Lilith stings because she got me into the game. But Pandora has been my go to for years and Titania is starting to get table time too. I also really dig both of their themes. I’m happy using Dead Mans Hand Lilith whenever I’m feeling nostalgic. I’m also super keen to see what they do with Lilith in the future. I’m betting none of them are gone forever and are getting reworks. I’d love to see a Outcast Lilith, working to get back at Nekima from the shadows.

    Guild has had massive shakeups just due to having a new, not corrupt, Governor General.

    On the plus side, you’re free to print the stat cards in whatever size you want, since they will be free.

    Nicodem Players - Dealing with the nerf

    Gamers? I don’t see a point in segregation. We play the same game. Personally, my group plays a mix of ways. We sometimes meet at someone’s house to play there. We often play at our local store, with our own group and pick up games with people from the surrounding area. We also play tournaments and leagues with people from the surrounding area. Never once have I seen a casual game played with gaining grounds schemes and strategies treated with the seriousness of a tournament.

    Third Edition is Coming!!

    I started this game with Lilith. I do have Collodi, but I don’t really play him. I was never particularly interested in Lynch and never bought him. Losing Lilith hurts. However, I’m very keen to see where the story goes. With Nekima taking her place and Lilith currently sitting in the pit, there’s a lot of opportunity in the future to shake up Liliths playstyle. For example, I’d love to see her go Outcasts. Have her work in the shadows with subtlety like she’s supposed to to once again bring her sister down.

    Nicodem Players - Dealing with the nerf

    Speaking of earlier faulting those who have lost masters not being helpful, neither is dismissing groups you don’t care to accept the opinions of as ‘basement groups’. We’re all in this together.

    Nicodem Players - Dealing with the nerf

    I see people run the latest set of tournament scenarios but I never see people treat casual games as tournaments. That’s two very different things. TOs can say no, you can’t use Nicodem. Even casual games using Gaining Grounds I can’t imagine anyone will care if you run a Dead Mans Hand master.

    Nicodem Players - Dealing with the nerf

    He will get a card - all current models will, but it’s tournament legality will be optional depending on the TOs decision.
