    Join the club of "screwed by hiring changes," sadly. Or don't, vote with your wallet. That's sort of where I'm at, currently. I was waiting for the beta rules to make my final call, and well.. they didn't cut it.
  2. Mad? No. Displeased with and lacking confidence in the balance team to the point of my wallet closing? Yes. The card-draw.. probably justified. Taking a bat to the knees and then the skull of his specialty as a Master to appease whiners? Sorry, that's a deal-breaker as it makes me doubt the capabilities of the dev team to an intolerable degree. It shows a design philosophy that I refuse to endorse with my hobby budget.
  3. No, it says "I bought into Ressers starting with Nico, back when he was considered a mid-tier at best, and because I enjoyed the notion of him I bought almost all of his summons." Nice try, though.
  4. Congratulations Wyrd, that Nico nerf cost you my business going forward, at least where Malifaux is concerned. Ridiculously overdone, and since Ressers were the only faction I felt inclined to expand on and you just gutted my only Resser Master (I play Tara as Outcast).... I'm voting no-confidence with my wallet. Doesn't do wonders for my faith in TOS, either.
  5. Nico has a lot of tricks, but ultimately I usually have him in the back performing profane rituals while his summoned horde does the work. (I also relate to this, as it's how I felt about the Outcasts overall. Parker sold me on theme, and I also now have and love Tara - who plays nice with my Nico horde, so bonus)
  6. I have Masters in every faction except Grems and Guild - though I did pick up Lynch as a 'Born master. Guild.... eh. I just don't like the Guild, lore-wise. They're soul-stealing fascist scum! That said, Hoffman tempts me, as I've come to enjoy giant stompy-bots and I'vealways loved cyborgs. I also actually like Sonnia as a character, but I already have Rasputina for a nuker. Gremlins..that's only a matter of time. I love Ulix conceptually and in the lore, and he's mostly self-contained. Wyrd sending me a foil card for him helps.
  7. So hey, I'm back with a new release - well, okay it was back in December. Anyhow, to any interested parties who might enjoy a Space Western yarn with a bit of thematic ground akin to Malifaux... If you're interested, check it out at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077VR63BJ Thank you, gentle Wyrdos, for your consideration.
  8. I have to both agree and reinforce this point. It really cannot be over-stated that this is the case.
  9. As for what to get w/ Parker.. a few things not mentioned yet: Johan: Johan's pretty much mandatory. He's phenomenal, and he's a bargain at 7ss. At 6ss for Outcasts, he's ridiculously good. Big Jake: A great scheme runner, card-engine, and surprise attack to swing dicey situations on Turn 5. Great for certain take-and-hold strategies, too. Sue: Just a great big bag of wonderful abilities. As a bonus, they all fit Parker's aesthetic pretty well, too.
  10. I've actually heard the exact opposite re: Hans vs. Trapper.... but mind, it was in a matter of Hans v. Trapper for use with Tara...
  11. Seriously, this. As phenomenal (and I do mean phenomenal) as all your work is, the separate irises are what may be the most mind-blowing bits of all.
  12. I want the adorable lug in melee as quickly as possible, and I want things trapped in melee with him until they're naught but a fine, red mist.
  13. I like Leap and the Tentacle myself.
  14. He's really pretty easy - the only bit that confused me were his sabatons. I've only had one game so far, but Talos was great. His low Defense is a real pain at range but against bigger targets he closes with he can really do work - he ate Lilitu, Coppelius, and Lelu in that game, and then the Wretches chewed them up while they were held. It was beautiful.
  15. This mini would be almost enough to make me consider playing Guild.
  16. My only device is a Kindle Fire. Any chance the app will be coming to the Amazon app store, or am I out of luck here?
  17. There is none, to me. Buying the books for new editions, new cards, etc. is a huge money-drain for the less-than-flush gamers among us.
  18. Yeah, honestly he's a solid generalist. If your venue is 'pick one Master and stick with it".. as was said, that's arguably where he'd shine the most. He can shoot decently (he doesn't hit immensely hard, but he hits decently well with the built in ), he's decently resilient (especially at range and especially with his new Wave 5 upgrade), and his Totem is a cheap, decently effective healer. His entire thematic crew is fairly quick and he's no exception, and his upgrades (and Mad Dog) let him deal with terrain both creating and ignoring.
  19. Raspy's my only Arcanist Master.... but my gods, both of those upgrades sound glorious and I want them. Especially as I love her for her thematic crew...
  20. Those new Parker upgrades... I was intending to get this anyway, now I'm utterly sold. The fact that both are western video game references just makes it better...
  21. @Astrella "Can" and "should" by who's measurements and decisions? Popular consensus of a society? Fallible and prone to horrific excesses. If little Jimmy Klansman wants to spew ignorance, he's permitted, and has every right to do it. One must recall, in nearly every case any given position, right or wrong, popular or unpopular, will have an opposite opinion - and which one holds dominance at any given time can transform abruptly. Censorship and condemnation of any form of artistic expression or creative endeavor only empowers social regression. Whether by 'moral imperative' or any other principle. The tool that is used for 'progress' today to squash regression and bigotry can all too easily turn on its wielder when the definitions of 'social acceptability' are changed. Precedent is a dangerous thing. All expression is free, or none is - and again, those supporting the stifling of free expression, no matter how vile, are traditionally not good people. @Dogmantra Ah, see I agree on that point. Free expression does not mean 'free from consequence' and yes, in that regard I agree. Apologies for the misunderstanding. But criticism and demanding suppression are two separate things - just as criticism and persecution are two separate things, yeah?
  22. @Dogmantra I utterly disagree. One does not get to tell others what they can or cannot create, based on your prejudices, sensibilities, or beliefs. Maybe your society does, but that is not universal. No one forces you to read any given creators' work, and if that creator relies on that work for a living eventually they will choose between belief or payday. Is that diatribe "in-character"? If so, the author is not speaking, the character is, and just because some folks are too fragile to even read a very real viewpoint because they find t troubling or disagree with it -even when it deserves to be disagreed with - does not mean an author is at all obliged to humor their delicate sensibilities. All expression is free and absolute, or none is. And those arguing for the latter in any form? Historically, not great people.
  23. Biig thread, but has anyone mentioned Emeline Bellerose yet? She's very explicitly lesbian, or at least bisexual - and she's obviously the model for new alt-Sybelle.
  24. Magic! Also, I love how Vogel's look turned out. So very much do I love the entire aesthetic.
