Legend of the Five Rings LCG Announced

April 22nd, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of the Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game Core Set.

Originally released in 1995 as a collectible card game, Legend of the Five Rings has since thrived with its unique setting, engaging gameplay, and enthusiastic player base. Now players new and old alike can experience Rokugan like never before in the Living Card Game format.

Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game is a player-influenced LCG that sees two players take on the role of one of the seven Great Clans of Rokugan, vying for military and political control of the land while maintaining Rokugan society’s strict code of honor.

Each player commands their forces with two separate decks: A Dynasty Deck fills their provinces with characters and holdings and a Conflict Deck consisting of tactics, maneuvers, followers and attachments that can be used to turn the tide in a struggle for supremacy. During a game, players will engage in conflicts, both political and military based, with the goal of breaking their opponent’s stronghold and winning the game. But the rules of society are absolute, and even in the fire of battle and heat of Rokugan’s courts, clans must remember the tenets of Bushid?, lest they lose everything in their single-minded pursuit of glory.

The Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game Core Set comes with everything a player needs to explore the seven great clans of Rokugan, the Crab Clan, Crane Clan, Dragon Clan, Lion Clan, Phoenix Clan, Scorpion Clan, and Unicorn Clan. It also includes a variety of tokens, cards, and rule sheets that make the Core Set the definitive starting point for the Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game.

There is no single path to peace, but the Galactic Empire has ensured that all such routes are fraught with danger. The Consular works with the Force to bring peace wherever they go, and the all-new Disciples of Harmony sourcebook expands players’ options in the Star Wars: Force and Destiny role playing game, including three new specializations and adding on three new species.

Although all it takes to be a successful Consular is a desire to see justice done, some species are more inclined to seek balance and peace in a way that lines up with the ways of the Consular. The Arkanian, Cosian, and Pau’an species are presented in Disciples of Harmony, opening your campaign to cultures focused on Jedi lore, negotiating, and medicine, each having a unique view of the Force.

This preview provides a look at each of these three species and how they play into the role of the Consular.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of The Path to Carcosa, the second deluxe expansion for Arkham Horror: The Card Game!

A new theater production is coming to Arkham all the way from Paris. Unsurprisingly, it’s been all the rage in conversations among Arkham’s socialites. But in your efforts to learn more about the play, you’ve uncovered a darker history. Disappearances. Suicides. Delusions. Insanity. Wherever The King in Yellow is performed, madness follows close behind.

Everything you find suggests the workings of something foul, even though no connection has yet been proven…

In The Path to Carcosa, it becomes your task to uncover the secrets of this unusual play. The expansion’s two scenarios kick off The Path to Carcosa campaign with a trip to the Ward Theatre and an invitation to the formal dinner party hosted by cast and crew. But with every answer you gain and every clue you uncover, you only find yourself falling deeper into mystery and madness.

Along with its new scenarios and encounter cards, The Path to Carcosa introduces six new investigators and sixty-two player cards (including a complete playset of each) that afford you new ways to explore and enjoy the game—even as they challenge you to overcome new weaknesses.

Blood on the Altar is now available for Arkham Horror: The Card Game!

The third Mythos Pack and fifth chapter in The Dunwich Legacy campaign, Blood on the Altar welcomes you to the eerie little town of Dunwich. The setting for one of H.P. Lovecraft’s most beloved tales of horror, Dunwich has always been a bit more dangerous than it appears. And when you arrive to find that the townsfolk are all on edge due to a series of recent disappearances, there’s already an almost palpable aura of danger in the air.

How are the Dunwich disappearances connected to the bizarre events in Arkham? Might they be related in some way to The Necronomicon and its sinister prose?

The answers to these questions are more hideous than you would ever imagine, but it’s your job to find them. Along with the missing townsfolk and the secret chamber in which they await their gruesome fates. Can you find these abductees and stave off greater evils before it’s too late? Much depends upon the results of your previous investigations. Much more depends upon your current haste.

Perhaps you and your fellow investigators should split up to cover more ground…

Utinni! – The Jawa Scavanger Villain Pack comes to Imperial Assault

April 7th, 2017

Almost no one knows what Jawas look like beneath their hooded brown robes—not even on Tatooine, where nearly everyone knows them by reputation. They are junk droid scavengers and merchants, and they traverse the desert planet in their massive, treaded sandcrawlers, hawking their wares to moisture farmers with few other options.

Not quite hostile, these Jawas aren’t truly friendly, either. Because their droids are often hastily refurbished, they push to strike their bargains quickly. Then they roll away in their sandcrawlers before the droids have a chance to malfunction.

It’s this combination of mystery, haggling, and droid-focused trickery that you’ll find brought to life by the figure, missions, and cards in the Jawa Scavenger Villain Pack for Imperial Assault.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Blood on the Altar for Arkham Horror TCG

April 6th, 2017

After a horrifying train ride, you receive a painfully cold welcome to the town of Dunwich. A string of disappearances has left the townsfolk on edge. Most of them regard you with obvious distrust, and almost no one is willing to help in your investigation…

In Blood on the Altar, as you and your fellow investigators explore the connections between Dunwich and recent events, you’ll find the town’s missing people chief among your concerns. You may even find it somewhat unnerving that they’ve gone missing just before you arrived—and that they might have been taken at the same time you were confronting terrifying, otherworldly creatures on a train, in a museum, or in the private underground corridors of an Arkham speakeasy.

So why do you hear so little about these missing people? You’d think in a town as small as Dunwich that the disappearances would have left a larger footprint. Shouldn’t someone have seen something? Shouldn’t the local officials have named one or more suspects?

The more you investigate, the more you suspect you’re making a target of yourself. You’re almost certain the missing people are hidden somewhere in the village, and you have to believe that if you’re not careful, you’re likely to join them.
