RPGNow - Tue, 08/21/2018 - 14:13
Boot Hill Wild West Role-Playing Game (2nd Edition)Publisher: Wizards of the Coast

You step from the cool shade of the Long Branch Saloon into the midday heat of Promise City. Loosening your Colt in its holster, you look down Main Street and spot the leather and denim-clad stranger who called you out. Citizens of the town scramble for cover as they sense the forthcoming battle. The outlaw doesn't look fast enough to match your draw, but ... wait! Your keen eyes catch the unmistakable glint of the sun against gun metal from the roof of the dance hall—the yellow coward has a buddy who's going to shoot you in the back! What will you do? Think fast. or you'll be the next resident of ... BOOT HILL!

BOOT HILL is the game of role-playing in the Wild West of history and legend. Each player adopts the persona of their character, becoming a shift less outlaw robbing banks and stages, a renegade half-breed leading Indians on the warpath, a straight-shooting sheriff determined to clean up the town, and so on. This boxed version contains a revised and expanded rules booklet (which now includes ratings for many of the real-life "fastest guns that ever lived"), a campaign map for El Dorado County ("Somewhere in the Southwest"), and a 34" X 22" map of Promise City, including a movement grid which can be used with the counters provided or by miniatures, and detailed structure drawings showing door, window. and stair locations as well as the height of the buildings! BOOT HILL merges the West of movies, television, and literature with reality to form the locale for endless hours of adventure and fun. Strap on your gunbelt, and enter the world of BOOT HILL!

Note on the Print Edition: For this version all off the maps and counters have been included as bonus pages in the book. If you plan on using them at the game table it is recommended that you purchase the PDF+Print combo deal and print them from the PDF.

Watch the World Burn

RPGNow - Tue, 08/21/2018 - 10:30
Watch the World BurnPublisher: White Wolf
Are you pawn of Destiny?

The broadcasts appear have no meaning; at best they point to average citizens with no connection to the Traditions 

Unconnected locations are targeted by dream-directed arsonists

An unknowable entity directs the latest conflict in the Ascension War  

 

Or serving something far worse?

Numbers Station 232778 has fired the first shots in a battle it cannot win, and the Mages in residence have placed their trust in a clandestine entity claiming to be an agent of Destiny.

Within this title, you’ll find:

  • The background and description of The Firehouse, an unusual Chantry with a network of cells and a penchant for fire
  • The Founding Members, three Mages summoned by The Gardener, but each with secrets and agendas
  • Two new Talismans and a Familiar, and
  • Eight story seeds

Designed for Mage First Edition. 

The Book of Chantries and Book of Shadows are useful, but not essential to enjoy this title.

NOTE: Every effort has been made to proof-read, edit, and correct this title.  If this title requires any corrections, please post in the Comments section below.  I try to respond to these observations swiftly.

Monster Menagerie: Draconis Arcanus

RPGNow - Tue, 08/21/2018 - 09:03
 Draconis ArcanusPublisher: Rogue Genius Games
DRAGONS OF PURE MAGIC

The true dragons are broken into numerous groups, each organized around a single common set of concepts they embody. The Chromatic Dragons are all organized by color. The Metallic Dragons are all organized by ore. The Imperial are organized by regions of rule, the Primal by elemental planes and related dimensions. All are creatures of powerful magic.

But none are creatures of pure magic. None are defined by what school of magic they embody. None, but the Draconis Arcanus.

Eight new forms of True Dragon, each embodying a single school of magic, from the defensive Abjuration Dragon to the ever-changing Transmutation Dragon, these are true dragons of pure magic, aloof and infused with arcane might in a way no other dragon can challenge. Each is presented with all the information needed for all twelve age categories, and three full stat blocks.

Also included are numerous Spell Dragon templates, allowing a GM to add various magic descriptors to allow for Chaos Infused spell dragons, or Druidic Spell Dragons.

Your players may think they know magic; that they know dragons ...

NAPD's Most Wanted

Fantasy Flight Games - Tue, 08/21/2018 - 03:25
Published 20 August 2018 | Android: Netrunner LCG NAPD's Most Wanted

The Newest Most Wanted List for Android: Netrunner The Card Game
 

"We stand behind all those who wear the NAPD badge."
   –Commissioner Chen-Mai Dawn

Android: Magnum Opus and the final Android: Netrunner World Championship are now just a few weeks away!

As these events look to draw a close to the game's Organized Play, the developers have assembled a new Most Wanted List (pdf, 6.5 MB) to promote greater diversity among the game's Corps and Runners—and to ensure that the game ends in a healthy place to reward continued play, even after its Organized Play has concluded.

What do these changes entail? For that information we turn to developer Michael Boggs.

Developer Michael Boggs on the Most Wanted List

Hello,

As we worked on this latest Most Wanted List (MWL), our team and playtesters faced a special challenge. Previous MWLs all followed the same key philosophy—to address problems in the meta, while keeping the list contained and welcoming to new and returning players. This MWL, however, is our last, and we’ve decided to tweak our philosophy accordingly.

We still want to keep the list contained, but we felt it was more important than ever to promote a meta that is healthy and long-lasting. As a result, MWL 2.2 is the most aggressive iteration of the list to-date, featuring a number of restrictions and removals on both sides.

Let’s start with the Runner.

Restricted

Clone Chip is coming off of the Restricted list. Mad Dash is taking its place.

  • Clone Chip: Taking Clone Chip off will boost the Shaper faction and Freedom Khumalo, providing both with useful flexibility. This also allows for Clot resurgence, helping to slow Arella Salvatore chains and Titan fast advance, while the boost to Freedom diversifies Anarch’s identity options. On the whole, taking Clone Chip off the Restricted list should encourage a welcome measure of exploration throughout the Runner side of the game.
  • Mad Dash: The extra agenda point from this inexpensive run event gives the Runner a significant amount of value against nearly every Corp archetype. In conjunction with cards such as Indexing, Mad Dash can end games quickly. As such, it has been restricted as a general way to slow Runners.
Removed

Hyperdriver, Mars for Martians, Zer0, and Tapwrm are now removed.

  • Hyperdriver: Hyperdriver enables decks that spend and abuse a massive amount of clicks in one turn. Corps have little way of responding to this style of play, meaning that Hyperdriver decks introduce a negative play experience that is harmful to the larger metagame.
  • Mars for Martians: This has been removed to slow Liza Talking Thunder tag-me builds. Tag-me Liza builds will continue to be strong, though they will no longer be able to gain twenty-plus credits in a single click, forcing them to work a little harder for their Counter Surveillance dig.
  • Zer0: Zer0 has been removed to break up the Anarch’s hottest couple. Both Zer0 and Clan Vengeance were discussed as potential candidates, but Zer0 was ultimately chosen for two reasons. First and foremost, before Zer0, Clan Vengeance existed on the fringe. It was part of strategies that were difficult to successfully pull off but that were exciting if you could do so. Secondly, Anarch has arguably the strongest economic potential in terms of credit gain, card draw, and click compression of all the Runner factions. As such, Zer0 gave Anarch both an oppressive synergy and an economy boost that they did not need.
  • Tapwrm: Tapwrm is being removed, partly due to its synergy with Clone Chip, which is being taken off the Restricted list, and partly to force Runners to find a more diverse set of economic solutions. While Tapwrm isn’t the clear choice for every deck, the decks that do run it can often put the Corp in a lose-lose situation.

On to the Corp!

Restricted

Bryan Stinson, Potential Unleashed, Skorpios Defense Systems, and Surveyor are all being restricted; Violet Level Clearance is moving from Removed to Restricted; and Fairchild 3.0 is coming off of the Restricted list.

  • Bryan Stinson: Bryan is the centerpiece of many exceptionally swingy turns and strategies. If the Runner dips below six credits for even one turn, Bryan can allow the Corp to gain such a massive economic advantage that it effectively ends the game right there.
  • Potential Unleashed: The entire plan for Potential Unleashed revolves around locking the Runner out of servers, something that is really no fun for either party. While this style of play certainly has its place in the game, Potential Unleashed is able to do this all too frequently. Placing Potential Unleashed on the Restricted list still allows for the lock-out style of play but forces the Corp to choose between the identity or Jinteki’s other powerful tool, Obokata Protocol.
  • Skorpios Defense Systems: Skorpios is not being restricted because of its power per se, but because it is one of the identities most prone to negative play experiences. Either Skorpios does absolutely nothing to the Runner or it wrecks their deck—there is no in-between. Playing against Skorpios can oftentimes feel like a coin flip. Placing Skorpios on the Restricted list alongside Hunter Seeker should limit the most abusive uses of the identity and encourage future Skorpios players to explore alternative strategies.
  • Surveyor: Surveyor simply turned out to be stronger than anticipated. If it were three or four influence, it likely would not be Restricted. It’s really a lesson on why higher influence costs are usually better for the game. As it stands, however, Surveyor has become the premier piece of ice for nearly every deck wishing to run some semblance of glacier.
  • Violet Level Clearance: Violet Level Clearance was initially removed to slow Cerebral Imaging. While its removal certainly had an impact, it wasn’t as effective as expected. VLC is still extremely efficient, however, and has moved to Restricted for that reason.
  • Fairchild 3.0: Though Fairchild 3.0 is a very strong piece of ice, it’s not quite on the same level as Surveyor. With Surveyor being added to the Restricted list, Fairchild 3.0 is coming off to ensure that glacier keeps the tools it needs.
Removed

24/7 News Cycle and Cerebral Imaging are being added to the Removed list; Estelle Moon and Museum of History are shifting from Restricted to Removed.

  • 24/7 News Cycle, Estelle Moon, and Museum of History: These cards are all going on the Removed list for the same reason: when they work well, they lead to Corp advantages that the Runner has limited ways of disrupting. And, of course, these cards often work very well.
  • Cerebral Imaging: Even when Violet Level Clearance was on the Removed list, Cerebral Imaging still dominated. More than this, balancing the identity is incredibly difficult; when we limit one build, another springs up almost immediately. For this reason, we’ve decided that it’s better to take CI out of the competitive environment.

Before I go, I want to say that it’s been an absolute honor working with this community. I simply cannot express how awesome it has been to have met, talked to, and playtested with so many amazing and passionate people. Thank you for making my time as the developer of Android: Netrunner such a memorable experience.

Join the Blue Squadron

Fantasy Flight Games - Tue, 08/21/2018 - 03:25
Published 20 August 2018 | X-Wing Second Edition Join the Blue Squadron

See the Prizes for X-Wing™ 2018 Season Three Organized Play

“Red and Gold squadron, attack formations. Defend the fleet. Blue squadron, get to the surface before they close that gate.”
     –Admiral Raddus, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Upgrade your shields, take evasive maneuvers, and fly with Blue squadron—a whole new series of thrilling dogfights awaits you with the third season of 2018 X-Wing™ Organized Play!

This is a season of massive changes. In September, we'll see the release of X-Wing Second Edition, and in October, we'll revel in the new edition at its first major competitive event, the 2018 Coruscant Invitational. The introduction of second edition also means the conclusion of Organized Play support for first edition. To that end, the 2018 Season Three Tournament Kit is the last to offer first edition prizes—even as it simultaneously offers second edition versions of the same prizes.

First edition or second edition, the prizes from X-Wing 2018 Season Three Organized Play have got you covered, so strap on your flight suits, scramble your fighters, and fly to battle. With all the buzz surrounding second edition and just a little bit of time left to explore all the possible first edition squads, there's never been a better time to enjoy the galaxy's greatest battles!

Fly to Battle Before the Gate Is Closed

There's only a short time to enjoy the last of your first edition Organized Play battles before the transition to second edition, so use it to the best of your advantage!

Perhaps you'll want to experiment with your latest Resistance or First Order squadrons before their ships and pilots go on temporary hiatus until they reemerge as distinct factions in second edition. Perhaps you'll want to practice arc-dodging ahead of the transition to the second edition's heavily reinforced emphasis on maneuvering and firing arcs. Perhaps you'll want to dedicate as much table time as possible to your favorite first edition pilots and upgrades.

However you approach your final Organized Play events for first edition, you'll want to be sure to have fun with them, and you'll be able to add to your enjoyment with the new prizes you can win during Season Three.

The X-Wing 2018 Season Three Tournament Kit features seventeen Core Prize Cards, three Elite Prize Cards, and two Elite Prize Sets to reward you and the other members of your local X-Wing community for your participation—both in your final first edition battles and in the earliest of the second edition battles that follow!

One copy each of the Core Prize Cards and Elite Prize Cards are intended for the event organizer—to keep or distribute at their discretion—but the rest are meant as prize support for your local Stay on Target Tournament or X-Wing league. And it's up to your organizer to decide whether yours will be an event for the game's first or second edition!

Core Prize Card

Ready your squad for future victories with the double-sided, extended-art Shield Upgrade card available to the Top 16 participants of your Stay on Target Tournament or X-Wing league. With the ugprade's first edition text on one side and its second edition ability on the other, this Core Prize Card is a valuable addition to your squadron no matter the edition!

Elite Prize Card

Whether you're looking to the future or trying to race your Blue squadron through the shield gate before first edition support comes to a close, you'll find the double-sided, extended-art Blue Squadron Pilot card to be a valuable addition to your collection.

Like the Shield Upgrade Core Prize Card, this Elite Prize Card features the B-wing's first edition version on one side and its second edition version on the other.

Elite Prize Set

To claim one of the Season Three Elite Prize Cards you need to place among the Top 4 at your Stay on Target Tournament or in your X-Wing league. However, if you place among the Top 4, you might not even opt for the Blue Squadron Pilot Elite Prize Card; you might want to claim an Elite Prize Set of five arcade-style evade tokens.

Importantly, even though these tokens are metallic and not actually colored green, they count as "green" tokens in second edition, just like all your other evade tokens, and you can still use them in Organized Play events even after the transition to second edition.

Stay on Target, Wave Leader

Whether you want to enjoy the current edition as long as you can or you're hoping to usher in the new edition as early as possible—or both—the prizes in the 2018 Season Three Tournament Kit offer you plenty of reason to participate in X-Wing Organized Play.

But as we said earlier, this is a season of massive changes, and even the seasonal Tournament Kit is soon destined for change. The 2018 Season Three Tournament Kit is the last of its kind, and we'll release a new style of kit for future seasons of X-Wing Organized Play, along with the additional support provided by the Deluxe Wave Kits meant to celebrate the arrival of each new wave of X-Wing starfighter expansions.

We'll share more details about the first of these newer kits in the weeks and months to come, so be sure to check back. In the meantime, put on your flight helmet, check your systems, and talk to your local retailer about how you get involved with X-Wing 2018 Season Three Organized Play. You are cleared for launch!

Get More from Your Troops

Fantasy Flight Games - Tue, 08/21/2018 - 03:25
Published 20 August 2018 | Star Wars: Legion Get More from Your Troops

Decorate Your Troops with the Star Wars™: Legion 2018 Season Three Ground Assault Prizes

“Imperial troops have entered the base. Imperial troops have entered…”
     –Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

Star Wars™: Legion is your gateway to the greatest ground battles in the Star Wars gaming galaxy!

With its detailed miniatures and highly intuitive mechanics, Star Wars: Legion brings your battles to life so vividly you can almost hear the blaster fire and smell the ionized air. And while your troops will want to take cover anytime they hear an AT-ST thudding along the ground or a T-47 Airspeeder roaring overhead, the game's focus on its infantry ensures that your troops will always take center stage.

You need to build infantry into your army to make it legal. You need soldiers to pursue your objectives. And your soldiers are often the ones who most closely tie you to the action. Surrounded by towering war machines and commanded by powerful Force users, these soldiers represent you and me—if we were somehow dropped onto a Star Wars battlefield. They remind us how deadly the combats of Star Wars: Legion can be. They remind us how even a grunt soldier can become a hero and snatch victory out of the jaws of defeat.

Accordingly, we should treat them well. We already want to assign them the best possible commands each round. If we can't keep them all alive, we at least want their sacrifices to prove meaningful. Our soldiers should all know that their efforts made a difference and helped turn the Galactic Civil War in their favor.

Finally, we should honor them with the new extended art unit cards coming in the third season of Organized Play… and that means getting involved!

Coordinate Your Attack

Your games at your favorite local game store are the beating heart of Star Wars: Legion Organized Play. The program exists to help you find more players, enjoy more games, and experience more of all that Star Wars: Legion has to offer. To that end, you'll find each new season of Organized Play accompanied by the release of three new Operations, each of which allows you to enjoy a slightly different take on the game's hard-hitting battles.

Each month, you play a new Operation, and your event organizer will inform you whether you'll be playing its different stages as part of a weekly league, as part of a big one-day event, or with a single "rival" with whom you'll coordinate your games. No matter how you play through the Operation, though, you can earn prizes for your participation.

These prizes are distributed a little bit differently, depending on the type of event your organizer chooses to run, but you earn one Core Prize card at the end of your first game and an Elite Prize token after you complete three games. Each of the Core Prize cards is also available as a Patronage Card that your retailer can offer when you make a Star Wars: Legion purchase (while supplies last). You'll have a chance to win an additional Elite Prize, too, and the more you play, paint your army, and pursue the goals outlined in your Operations, the better your chance will be. Finally, each Ground Assault Kit comes with three Painting Awards to support monthly Painting Contests.

In the 2018 Season Three Ground Assault Kit, you'll find the following Core Prizes, Elite Prizes, and Painting Awards:

  • Core Prizes: AT-RT, double-sided Fleet Troopers / Snowtroopers, E-Web Heavy Blaster Team
  • Elite Prizes: Ion token, Panic token, Standby token
  • Painting Awards: Best Painted Corps, Best Painted Commander, Best Painted Special Forces

$(document).ready(function() { var opts = { iframe: true, innerHeight: 837, innerWidth: 1000 }; $('#67A5').colorbox(opts); });

Notably, all of the Core Prize cards in this Ground Assault Kit are double-sided and feature full-bleed extended art. As you would expect, the Fleet Troopers / Snowtroopers card presents all the necessary information for the Fleet Troopers on one side and for the Snowtroopers on the other. The AT-RT and E-Web Heavy Blaster Team cards, however, simply pair the unit card information with a bold and uninterrupted look at the unit's art piece on the reverse side—an image worthy of the sacrifices made by any of these units destroyed in battle.

Continue Your Battles Across the Galaxy

Prizes are great, but the true highlight of the 2018 Season Three Ground Assault Kit is the introduction of three new Operations for you to enjoy with your local community!

  • Operation: Superior Position is an Ambush Operation that supplements your starting army of 300 points with a pool of Incoming Reserves that may be deployed later in the game in increments of 100, 200, or 300 points. You’ll need to seize control of the game’s objective tokens in order to bring these forces into play, so you can expect these tokens to be fiercely contested!
  • Operation: Deep Jungle carries you through a series of four Raids, each of which is played within the confines of a 3’ by 3’ play surface. While you and your opponent battle for control of an abandoned weapon facility, you’ll each start with a relatively small force. As you battle your way into the facility, however, you’ll be able to claim new weapons and gear to upgrade your units. Since these upgrades remain with your units for your subsequent battles, you may find yourself forced to decide whether to pursue tactics better for your current battle—or aim for the upgrades that might position you better in the long-term!
  • The games Special Forces and Operatives will feature prominently in Operation: Shadow, an Escalation event that will have you and your opponent hunting for each other's secretly selected priority units. Your inital army for this event will start at 300 points—with no Commander—and will build to a total 900 points over the course of four games.

Naturally, these Operations each feature a unique set of rules and achievements to ensure they promote fresh and memorable play experiences. They will be made available shortly. In the meantime, to get a better idea of how the game's Operations feel when you're in the trenches, you can read the article "More Than Miniatures," in which guest writer Charles Bryers recounted his personal experience with Operation: Blue Metal.

Fight for a Cause

There's more at stake in Star Wars: Legion than your battlefield and your immediate objectives. There's a Galactic Civil War raging throughout the stars, and once you're ready to play your part, the Star Wars: Legion Organized Play program will be waiting for you.

Is it your time to be a hero? Help decide the fate of the galaxy. Sign up for the Galactic Empire or the Rebel Alliance. Talk to your local retailer today about getting involved in Star Wars: Legion Organized Play!

Don't Upset the Wookiee

Fantasy Flight Games - Tue, 08/21/2018 - 03:25
Published 20 August 2018 | Star Wars: Imperial Assault Don't Upset the Wookiee

The Prizes for 2018 Season Three Star Wars™: Imperial Assault Organized Play

"Droids don’t pull people’s arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that."
     –Han Solo, Star Wars: A New Hope

A raging Wookiee can be seen in one of two ways:

If you've angered the Wookiee and it's coming after you, you might see the Wookiee as a worrisome force of destruction. Its low growl, towering form, obvious strength, and renowned ferocity may have you questioning your life decisions—even as you look for ways to extend your suddenly fragile lifespan.

If, however, the Wookiee is your ally, and it's lunging into a pack of Stormtroopers who, much to their surprise, find themselves tossed about like rag dolls, you might view the Wookiee's rage from an entirely different perspective. You may see it as the manifestation of its fierce loyalty and its bravery—its unrelenting nobility of spirit.

No matter how you view a raging Wookiee, though, you'll have your chance to get a better look at one during 2018's third season of Organized Play for Star Wars™: Imperial Assault!

A celebration of the Imperial Assault skirmish game, Imperial Assault Organized Play helps you find other players, enjoy more of the game's tactical combats, and see new and interesting strategies. Better yet, your participation in Organized Play events puts you in contention for a whole host of custom prizes, including an extended art version of the Wookiee Avenger skirmish card!

See What You Can Scavenge

The 2018 Season Three Tournament Kit for Star Wars: Imperial Assault comes with seventeen Core Prize Cards, three Elite Prize Cards, and two Elite Prize Sets. One of these Core Prize Cards and one Elite Prize Card are the event organizer's to keep or distribute at their discretion, but the other prizes are all up for grabs, awarded to those commanders who can best balance their pursuit of objective points with their destruction of enemy forces.

Whether you enjoy your skirmish battles in an Entanglement Tournament or over the course of an Imperial Assault league, you can claim one of the Core Prize Cards for finishing among the Top 16 participants, and if you finish among the Top 4 participants, you'll be able to choose one of the Elite Prize Cards or Elite Prize Sets.

Core Prize Card

The Top 16 participants in each Season Three 2018 Entanglement Tournament or Imperial Assault league receive a double-sided, alternate art version of the popular Jawa Scavenger unit. One side features the standard Jawa Scavenger while the other features the elite version, which allows your Mercenary army to recruit up to three Droid groups from any other affiliations.

Both sides boast an action-packed illustration by Audrey Hotte, who depicts the yellow-eyed smuggler returning enemy fire from the cover it has taken behind a pile of scrap.

Elite Prize Card

Battle your way into the Top 4 of your Entanglement Touranment or Imperial Assault league, and you'll earn the chance to claim an Elite Prize Card or Elite Prize Set. If you choose the Elite Prize Card, you'll be able to bring Chewbacca to your games, bigger and bolder than ever!

This extended-art version of the Wookiee Avenger skirmish upgrade features all the same game information as the version from the Heart of the Empire campaign expansion, but it boasts a version of Chewbacca that can no longer be contained by the standard art frame.

When Heart of the Empire was released, players everywhere were exicted for its skirmish upgrades because they meant we'd see more of Darth Vader, Han Solo, and Chewbacca. And now that we've seen them feature on more and more tables, this upgrade allows you to get an even better look at everyone's favorite Wookiee.

Elite Prize Set

Alternatively, if you make the Top 4 and don't claim the Wookiee Avenger Elite Prize Card, you can upgrade your collection of Imperial Assault tokens with the five Weaken tokens featured in the Season Three 2018 Elite Prize Set.

These acrylic tokens feature purple paint atop a frosted white base and hinder the attack and defense of any figure that suffers them—perfect for anytime you find yourself on the wrong side of the raging Wookiee!

Bolster Your Army

Before you send your army into the thick of combat, you want to give it every advantage—including the enhanced cosmetic appeal provided by the custom cards and tokens in the 2018 Season Three Tournament Kit.

Jawa Scavengers, raging Wookiees, and stunning Weaken tokens—it's all in there, and it's all yours to win. So talk to your favorite local retailer today to find out how you can get involved with Imperial Assault Organized Play!

Way of the Light

Fantasy Flight Games - Tue, 08/21/2018 - 03:25
Published 20 August 2018 | Star Wars: Destiny Way of the Light

See the Prizes for Star Wars™: Destiny 2018 Season Three Organized Play

"You must feel the Force around you. Here, between you… me… the tree… the rock… everywhere!"
     –Yoda, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

The Force is all around you. It can be a powerful ally. And if you master your deckbuilding with the recent Way of the Force Booster Packs, you should fare well in your confrontations during the third season of 2018 Star Wars™: Destiny Organized Play!

Designed to help you meet more players and enjoy more games, the Organized Play program for Star Wars: Destiny features multiple levels of events—running from the seasonal Clash of Fates Tournaments you can enjoy at your favorite local game store, through the Galactic Qualifiers that take place at select conventions, and all the way up to the game's pinnacle of competitive play at its World Championship.

But no matter your aspirations, your journey begins with your local retailer. Only a fully trained Jedi can possibly hope to conquer the world's best Star Wars: Destiny players, and the seasonal events at your local retailer are your training grounds. Only there can you complete your training—and win custom prizes for doing so!

Through the Force Things You Will See

Reach out with the Force to find an Organized Play event near you, and you might do more than complete your training—you might also discover new deck designs and claim one or more exclusive Season Three prizes.

Whether your event organizer uses the contents of the Season Three 2018 Tournament Kit to support a Clash of Fates Tournament, a local league, or some other style of event, your participation will put you in the running for one or more of the kit's seventeen Core Prize Cards, three Elite Prize Cards, and two Elite Prize Sets.

One of the Core Prize Cards and one of the Elite Prize Cards are intended for the event organizer—to keep or distribute at their discretion—but the rest are up for grabs, awarded to the players who most successfully engage in their "What if?" Star Wars: Destiny dice-and-card battles.

Core Prize Cards

Finish among the Top 16 participants, and you will claim an alternate art copy of Way of the Light with artwork by Aurone Folny that depicts Kanan Jarrus deep in meditation.

This common card is the perfect counter to the dark side's anger, fear, and aggression. For one resource, it allows you to remove any non-hero die, even allowing your Jedi to stand without fear against an AT-AT or Planetary Bombardment.

Elite Prize Cards

Finish among the Top 4 participants of your local Organized Play event, and you'll be able to choose from among the event's Elite Prize Cards and Elite Prize Sets. If you choose the Elite Prize Card, you can face your future opponents while wielding an extended art version of the powerful Darksaber.

Elite Prize Set

Even if you follow the way of the light side, you will likely deal—or at least suffer—damage during your matches. After all, the conflicts of Star Wars: Destiny are fast and furious, with plenty of back-and-forth action.

Make your way into the Top 4 at your local event, however, and you might be able to claim one of the sets of acrylic damage markers available in the Season Three 2018 Tournament Kit. Featuring red paint atop a smoky background, these damage markers can lend a sense of nobility to the damage you suffer—or if you use them to track the damage you deal to your opponents, they may serve as a subtle reminder of the lure of the dark side.

Master the Force

Whether you're a Jedi Master or a Padawan looking for your first introduction to the Way of the Force Booster Packs and the many possibilities they represent, the Season Three 2018 Organized Play events at your favorite local game store are your training grounds.

Meet new players, play more games, discover new cards, and master new strategies. A whole galaxy of adventure awaits you with Star Wars: Destiny Organized Play. Talk to your local retailer to learn how you can get involved!

Featuring the Demolisher on one side and Home One on the other, this card grants you access to two of the game's greatest ships—either of which could be viewed as an appointment worthy of the greatest of admirals.

Elite Prize Set

To fly and battle your way toward the top of your Fleet Patrol Tournament, you'll need to plan ahead. Among other things, that means knowing when you'll need to reveal your Navigation commands—and when you'll need to back up the command from your dial with the extra maneuverability provided by a token.

Accordingly, if you fly your way into the Top 4, you might lay claim to the season's set of acrylic Navigation tokens. Featuring bold red paint atop a frosted white base, these tokens don't just empower your maneuvers; they make them look good!

Scorpions Win the Imperial Favor

Fantasy Flight Games - Tue, 08/21/2018 - 03:25
Published 20 August 2018 | Legend of the Five Rings LCG Scorpions Win the Imperial Favor

The 2018 Season Three Stronghold Kit for Legend of the Five Rings

The Scorpion could sell what they knew, or offer to remove the threat… or, if necessary, create a spark in just the right place to turn this pile of tinder into a wildfire. Whatever served their purpose best.
     –Marie Brennan, In the Garden of Lies (Part II)

So far, this year has been very good to the Scorpions of Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game.

Led by Bayushi Shoju, Bayushi Kachiko, and the many samurai who have represented them in Organized Play, the Scorpions have insinuated themselves into numerous positions among the game's highest ranks, and they have seen many of their most far-reaching schemes move slowly, surely, toward fruition.

They continued to make excellent use of the information their spies presented to them, winning tremendous influence within the Imperial court and the distinction of hosting the Emperor's Winter Court. They surprised both the Lions and the Crane by winning Toshi Ranbo by way of Imperial decree. And, most recently, they have won the Imperial favor heading into the third season of 2018 Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game Organized Play.

This means that the 2018 Season Three Stronghold Kit will be—like so many other things in 2018—themed to honor the Scorpions and their cunning.

Scorpion samurai enjoyed enough victories throughout the months supported by the Season Two Stronghold Kit that they ran away with the Clan Vote, and the Season Three Kit will, therefore, feature a plastic Imperial Favor card lavishly decorated with Scorpion art.

Which Clan Will Shine in Season Three?

Startled and spurred to action by the Scorpion clan's dominating start to 2018 Organized Play, the other clans will certainly push back hard in Season Three. They'll delve the Scorpion secrets revealed in the Underhand of the Emperor Clan Pack, and they'll use their knowledge of these new Scorpion tactics to find greater success in the battles supported by the 2018 Season Three Stronghold Kit.

You can represent your clan's interests by joining these battles. They're your chance to refine your skills and to experiment with new techniques. You'll be able to explore the courtier's greatest arguments and the swordmaster's cleanest cuts. You'll resist the ambushes set by other clans, you'll confront their lies in the Imperial court, and you'll find your chance to claim not only honor, but riches—and the chance to sway the Emperor and help your clan win the Imperial favor.

Each Stronghold Kit for Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game contains enough prizes to support three Conflict Tournaments or three Dynasty Leagues—or a combination of Conflict Tournaments and league play. The kit's flexibility ensures your local event organizer will be able to structure the events in the way that best supports your community.

In addition, the 2018 Season Three Stronghold Kit supports a special Harness the Elements event. This event celebrates the additional roles each clan has gained with the close of the Toshi Ranbo Kotei Series and comes with its own array of prizes—including an exclusive playmat and engraved wooden cards for each of the game's elemental roles.

You can download the 2018 Season Three Stronghold Kit Event Outline below to review the entire list of Season Three prizes and their recommended distribution.

Event Outlines 1.0 MB
2018 Season Three Stronghold Kit 31 Jul 2018

Of course, there's more at stake during your Season Three battles than just the prizes. There's your honor—and the strength of your clan. Fight your way to the top of any of your store's Season Three Conflict Tournaments or Dynasty Leagues, and you will earn a code card and the right to support your clan in the Imperial court.

You'll use your code to vote for your clan on L5RVote.com, and in so doing, you'll support the rest of your clan in your efforts to gain Imperial recognition. At the end of Season Three, your votes will determine which of the Great Clans will be honored by the prizes of the 2018 Season Four Stronghold Kit!

Find Honor Through Victory

Every samurai in Rokugan suspects the Scorpion of underhanded tricks and dishonorable tactics. The problem is that very few can catch the Scorpion in the act. Now the Scorpion have risen to a position of tremendous influence, and it's almost as though they can whisper directly into the ear of the Emperor himself.

But the world demands balance, and the other Great Clans must rise. Which of them will prevent the Scorpion from ensaring the Emerald Empire within their web of lies? Which clan can lead Rokugan back toward a path of honor and glory?

Play your part in shaping the Emerald Empire. Support your Champion, and rally the other members of your clan. Talk to your favorite local game store about how you can take part in the third season of 2018 Organized Play for Legend of the Five Rings: The Card Game!
