  1. Per the description blurb at Wayland Games for the Explorer's Society Faction Book. "Originally established as a means to reinvigorate the long-dulled sense of adventure of its founder, the Explorer’s Society has since expanded to focus on unfurling the mysteries of Malifaux and beyond. These aristocrats, dark tourists, and pioneers venture into the unknown corners of this world to seek knowledge, discover new locations, and hunt big game. While their motivations are unclear, their recent push to amass rare artefacts is not. In Search of Greatness in the vast unknown, the Explorer's Society has masqueraded under the guise of curious adventurers for the better part of a decade. Recently, the keys to the society have been passed on to someone far more interested - and conniving than it's founder, and with the new leadership comes new ambitions. Their rapid expansion has drawn attention from every corner of Malifaux. Each new discovery is a victory for the Society, and to the victor go the spoils." So while Cooper was the Founder, he is no longer the Leader. This makes things far more interesting going forward in my opinion.
  2. Heh, best so far. Can't say more due to an NDA but hoo boy, y'all ain't seen nothin' yet.
  3. Here is our mysterious Master of the Spelleaters(?). Discuss!
  4. Called it. Instead of Dual-Faction shenanigans, ES is showcasing dual-keyword shenanigans. Between the Malasaurus Rex and these new Spelleater guys, we’re seeing a pattern begin to emerge as the Explorer’s Society also reinforces other keywords.
  5. Yeah, I think this guy could be either the Umbra's Master or Henchman, if Brocken Spectre is the Totem.
  6. Core Box. Master: Lord Jason Cooper Totem: Hunting Hounds Henchman(?): Model 9 Minions: Runaways Supplementary Box Vatagi Huntsmen - Minions most likely Crypsis Corps - Expensive, Rare (2) Minions most likely MALISAURUS REX Box MALISAURUS REX - Expensive Grootslang-sized Enforcer most likely So, what do we think all these folks are gonna do and be about? The unit I’m most looking forward to is the Crypsis Corps. From their description and some educated guesswork, I’m gonna say they have either/both Stealth and Disguised and will likely be our designated Scheme Runners.
  7. So, I predict our initial release will be: Apex, Umbra, and the fleshing out of Frontier and Wastrel, plus some upgrades. Also, Raptor Riders anyone?
  8. Aaaaaaaah yeeeeeah. Great White Safari Hunter + Jurassic Park = WIN.
  9. I highly doubt the Bayou will cross over with Explorer’s Society. Read Ulix’s story to find out why.
  10. The reason I say Half-Blood is because of the newly introduced character of Gretchen Janus, I won’t spoil any specifics but she’ll likely have the Half-Blood Keyword, I doubt we’re going to see Asylum in ES, it doesn’t really make mich sense. ES’s ties to the Guild are going to be through Basse. So with: Frontier, Wastrel, Apex, Umbra, and Half-Blood, that leaves 3. One of which I think will be some type of Captain Ahab-esque Sea Captain hunting down Meridion and the Gibbering Hordes.
  11. Well if you read the McCabe story in the TT book you’ll find out just what the Society is up to, at least some of them. As well, the poem kind of explains what Umbra-guy did: “Who went into the darkness,And lived where shadows do?“
  12. From Wikipedia: A Brocken spectre (German: Brockengespenst), also called Brocken bow or mountain spectre, is the magnified (and apparently enormous) shadow of an observer cast upon clouds opposite the Sun's direction. The figure's head is often surrounded by the halo-like rings of coloured light forming a glory, which appears opposite the Sun's direction when uniformly-sized water droplets in clouds refract and backscatter sunlight.
  13. Umbra means Shadow, and the poem mentions using light and tech to bind and fight ghosts. Hopefully not too much thematic overlap with Kirai.
  14. Welp, with the revelation of this guy in the new Waldo’s Weekly, it looks like Daeva are in fact Explorer’s Society, hm.
  15. So Daeva are Explorer’s Society after all then...hrmmmmm.
