Dark Seas Dice Update

Sat, 04/11/2015 - 17:06

Today at TableTop Day people will recieve their first copies of Dark Seas. There was a production error with the dice in the final copies. The colors are correct but the symbols were incorrect. Three symbols do not correspond with the symbols on the tiles.

The colors are all that are necessary for play, we added the symbols for the benefit of color-blind players. They have no direct impact on play. That said we care about our color-blind players and we want to get everyone the correct dice anyway! So we already ordered corrected sets of dice. We will let everyone know as soon as they are available. In the meantime enjoy Dark Seas with the slightly wonky dice. Can’t keep them pirates from causing trouble!

Faith and Fear – ON SALE NOW!

Mon, 04/06/2015 - 13:00

After the disastrous Election Day Slaughter, Gomorra seems like a town devoid of mercy or grace, but there are some devoted to the work of the divine. Bringing blessings and simple compassion, these souls seek not only to raise up the meek, but drive out those who would destroy. But can the same be said of the new mayor?

Doomtown: Reloaded is a fast‑paced expandable card game set in the Deadlands™ universe of gun slingin’, spell
slingin’, and mud-slingin’!

Faith and Fear is the first “Pine Box” set for Doomtown: Reloaded and introduces the new Blessed dudes and their miracles. But of course, other forces are always at work, and you’ll find many new cards for all your favorite factions, including four entirely new outfit cards!

How will you work to lead Gomorra … through faith or fear?

Twenty Festival Starter Deck Clarifications

Mon, 03/23/2015 - 21:53

Samurai of Rokugan!

It was brought to our attention that the Twenty Festivals Starter Deck PDFs are in need of 2 clarifications.

1. The Spider Stronghold Side B listed with the contents is from an out dated version of the card. The correct version is the one provided below. This is both the version that is listed in the Oracle of the Void and is physically located in the Twenty Festivals starter decks. For purposes of printing a proxy of this card for use at Kotei over the next two weeks, please make sure to use this version.

1

2. The Mantis & Unicorn Starters contain the card Advanced Warning. The presence of this card does not change the Banned Status of this card for constructed play. The card remains Banned in all Strict, Arc, and Extended formats. This includes both the Ivory and Twenty Festivals versions of these formats. The card is legal for use in Limited Formats. This includes both Sealed Deck and Booster Drafts.

Thank you, Good luck at any events you attend and Don’t forget to preorder your Twenty Festivals today! Time is running out, only 4 days until the Stronghold Store release.

Tsujiken Sensei

Tue, 03/17/2015 - 17:50

Hello Kotei attendees! I hope everyone is getting ready for their local Kotei and for the release of Twenty Festivals. While Twenty Festivals is not yet released, we do need to make one adjustment to the tournament format in the form of Tsujiken Sensei.

While Tsujiken has been out for some time and has been fine in the tournament format, with Twenty Festivals Crab receive a Shugenja based deck which can receive the gold bonus from Tsujiken Sensei without also being affected by the gold penalty, since the Shugenja deck tends to play very few, if any, Samurai.

We have been testing the Tsujiken Sensei Shugenja deck in Playtest for a couple months now and have found that erratum will be required once the deck is legal for tournament play. Simply put, the gold acceleration given to this military deck brought the deck to an unacceptable level.

As such, effective when Twenty Festivals becomes tournament legal, Tsujiken Sensei’s second trait will read:

Your non-Courtier Personalities enter play for 1 more Gold.

Nothing else about the card, nor any other aspect of the environment is receiving an adjustment at this time.

We look forward to finishing up the current Ivory environment and moving forward into the beginning of our twentieth anniversary with the release of Twenty Festivals! Check with your FLGS to pre-order now!
