Monday Preview - Wanyudo

Recommended Posts

It's like a pirate, except instead of having a peg leg it has a peg leg, peg leg, peg arm, peg arm, peg torso and few other pegged things as well.

Wave to the former Oyabun, everyone!

(Phew. Governor-General pinned to the sky in flames, Oyabun pinned to a wheel of fire—I’m beginning to think Ramos got off lightly by only being imprisoned. Or Sonnia’s gone soft after her years in the mask.)

So is the Undying Box basically an alternate starter set then?

Nope.

Think more "University of Transmortis."

"Typically, only those spirits who abused their power while alive become Wanyudo in death, but Minako Rei can force this punishment upon those she kills. The created Wanyudo are subservient to her wishes, much like beaten dogs."

 

That reads like Minako Rei might have a trigger on an attack that summons these things.

That's exactly how I read that too. Plus we already know she can summon those origami oni things

Kind of hope it is harder to get then just a trigger on attack, or at least have some extra hoops.  This is an Enforcer so it should require some sort of extra something to get.  Require a Severe, cost two discards, some sort of SS cost, only certain types of targets can trigger, have something like Flicker, or Katrina's issue where the model buries itself afterward.

Seems like the trigger will be "when killing".

It could be like Datsuba, and she puts a condition on the model for when it dies. I think that we'll have a rare limit on the wayundu which is what really limits their power. You'll probbaly easily be able to summon one, but if they are rare one, then you can't summon another until the first one dies. 

Although not having a rare limit will encourage purchasing of multiples of the encounter box...

Did we get a release month for this set? I think the pictures from a magazine suggested a March release but the latest newsletter didn't list it at all.

Too bad if true. I'm really looking forward to this set and I was already excited about May for the charm warders.

But there are multiple ways to do this and some that are triggers have additional costs to them.  Take for example Sonnia's Reincarnation upgrade, it is an ability with an :aura with an additional cost of a SS or two cards.  Lampads have a similar ability.  Witchling Handlers have theirs as a trigger on an attack but it costs them a SS to summon the witchling stalker and it suffers 3 damage.  Nicodem has an odd one on his upgrade Shadow Embrace where if he kills the target with the action he can use his Reanimator action, Rei could have something similar where she can take what ever summons the paper dolls but it summons a Wanyudo instead with the trigger.

So while it might be the ones she kills, it could still have some extra hoops or costs to the summon.
