The Celestial Realms book for the Legend of the Five Rings RPG brings insight into thes other realms of existence. Meanwhile, the Wheel of Judgement in the sky keeps turnin'... I mean, it's a new adventure that involves players in the games and plans that celestials and devils will make.
Fantasy Flight Games
It's always important to make sure you have the most up-to-date rules for your game. Something might've needed tweaking because it was unbalanced or the wording was ambiguous or whatever reason. Star Wars: Legion is the latest game to have an update. Fantasy Flight has posted one up, so if you've got an event coming up, or are just a hobby fan, you should make sure you've got the latest version of the rules.
Can't we all just get along? I mean, civilization has come to an end, the atomic bombs have rained down, and we're still fighting. Well, it's time to bring it all together. Fantasy Flight has announced that thaty'll be releasing Fallout: The Board Game: Atomic Bonds, a new expansion that turns the game into a cooperative endeavor.
For those looking to get some more adventures in the land of Rokugan, or to keep your superhero cards from getting dirty, Fantasy Flight has some new releases for you. For the Legend of the Five Rings RPG, there's two books, Path of Waves and Sins of Regret. For Marvel Champions, there's a bunch of play mats featuring some of the game's iconic characters.
The Clone Wars saw the clone armies of the Republic facing off against the robotic forces of the Separatists. But despite one army being made up of clones and the other coming off an industrial assembly line, not every trooper was identical. There were elites, specialists, and more. In this preview, we get a look at two new units coming for Star Wars: Legion that are a step up from the average squad.
Padme Amidala wasn't your average monarch. She didn't just sit on her throne, occasionally make a speech, and generally stay to herself. She was ready to get out there and fight just like anyone else when the Separatists came calling. Soon, Star Wars: Legion players will be able to add her to their forces. But not just her, Cad Bane is coming along as well, representing said Separatists. In this preview, we get a little look at what you can expect when they are released.
Fantasy Flight is moving a lot of cards these days. They've got a whole mess of new releases available for you shufflers out there. Marvel Champions, Legend of the Five Rings, Lord of the Rings, and Arkham Horror all have new expansion packs that you can pick up. And if you're a KeyForge player, there's some new gaming mats available as well to make sure your cards stay nice and clean. Have yourselves a look.
Fantasy Flight is looking to get you edicated about the world of Star Wars: Legion. Sure, you've maybe checked out a rulebook or hovered around while a couple people played a game, but maybe it still wasn't clicking. Well, that's where this deep-dive into the game's mechanics might help. This is the second part in the series looking at the game's mechanics.
There's something Strange in your neighborhood. Who you gonna call?
Doctor Strange, of course. And calling him a "something" is rather rude. He's the Earth's Sorcerer Supreme and soon he'll have his own deck in Marvel Champions. Fantasy Flight has announced this new set, full of magic and mystic goodness. Have yourselves a look.
19 new releases. There are 19 new releases spread out among the different Fantasy Flight Star Wars minis games that you can now purchase. That's quite a lot. There's things like the new Luke and Vader kits for Star Wars: Legion. Star Wars: Armada has a pair of new huge ships (good to see that game getting some support again). And X-Wing has a bunch of figures, including a bunch of re-releases for the 2nd edition of the game (I'm kind of surprised some of these weren't already available, to be honest...).
Technology advances. When I was young, I had a casette player. Then I had a CD player. Now, I have a phone that's a supercomputer. Well, the same happens in the Star Wars universe. The Battle Droids of old are replaced with newer models. Hence, the B2 Super Battle Droid. Soon, Star Wars: Legion players will be able to add these droids to their forces. Let's take a look at what they bring.
You might think that taking a walk through the woods would be calming and relaxing. However, that's not the case when one heads into the Mirkwood. You think happening across a regular spider web strung across the path is bad? How about a spider bigger than you are? The Shadowed Paths expansion for Journeys in Middle-earth will take players into the dark, dangerous woods with new heroes and new foes to fight against.
Sure, Star Wars: Legion has been out for a while, but maybe you never really gave it much of a look because you weren't entirely sure how the mechanics worked. You might've checked around, but didn't see anything truly to your liking in explaining the game. Well, Fantasy Flight is here to help. They've posted up an overview of the game so you can know just exactly if it's the game you're looking for.
The Kaminoans created a massive clone army for the Republic to use. But just because they made one clones doesn't mean that all the copies were going to be the same forever. As they went along, they refined their process and the training that the clones would receive, resulting in the Phase II trooper, of which we get a preview here before they make their way to Star Wars: Legion tabletops.
One of the greatest spies ever, Natasha Romanoff, also known as Black Widow, has had a bit of a checkered past. However, she's on the side of the superheroes these days. And she brings unprecedented espionage abilities to bear. Soon, you'll be able to don the black and head to battle with the Black Widow deck for Marvel Champions. Let's take a look at what's in store.
It's not just a brand of whiskey. Fireball is the name of a starship in the Star Wars universe. Primarily created as a racing ship, it's been fitted with some weapons to make it a fighter (Spike would be proud). Soon, it'll be racing its way onto tabletops in X-Wing from Fantasy Flight. In this preview, we get a look at just what you can expect from this "explosion with wings."
The Star Wars: Destiny game line is coming to an end. It's been around since 2016, with the card/dice system that set it apart from other games. It's had quite a run, but Fantasy Flight is bringing it to a close.
Beureaucratic paperwork. Some pencil-pusher in some galactic central office somewhere has made an error. The Cosmic Citizenship Council had been ready to add two new races to their ranks. However, only one set of forms was drawn up. Of course, just copying a new set wouldn't work. Too much red tape involved. Instead, the races are going to have to fight it out to see who's admitted. That's the story behind Cosmic Encounter: Duel, a new game coming soon from Fantasy Flight.
Convention season is damn-near upon us. Adepticon is rapidly approaching, and with it, the start of a season that nowadays basically runs pretty much all year. And with the launch of the season, Fantasy Flight is celebrating with a special edition Royal Naboo Fighter for X-Wing, including an alternate paint job and alternate card art for one of the pilots. But don't worry. Even if you're not up in Chicago, you can still get this figure.
While the Rebellion and the Empire fight it out in the galaxy, there are many individuals who are just there to stay out of the way and make a credit or two if they can. They're the pirates and smugglers who take the conflict as opportunity to do what they want while nobody else is hopefully looking. In Covert Missions, the upcoming set for Star Wars: Destiny, there's some new pirates and scavenger cards coming, along with their support cards. Let's take a look.
A new wave of X-Wing ships are on the horizon. For those looking to add to your squadrons, you can get a quick peek at the Xi-Class Shuttle, LAAT Gunship and HMR Droid Gunship. How will you be putting these new ships to use when they arrive?
Sometimes, a pilot comes along that redefines what it is to fly a certain type of craft. It could be said for Wedge and the X-Wing. It was definitely said for Baron Soontir Fel and the TIE Interceptor. It's also said about Major Vonreg and the First Order's upgrade of the TIE Interceptor. Soon, he'll be joining your squadrons in X-Wing. In this preview, we get a look at just what he's capable of.
You've possibly played KeyForge, Fantasy Flight's game where every deck in existence is different from every other. It's quite a wild world that the game takes place in. If you've enjoyed it and wish there was more ways to interact with it, you're in luck. Fantasy Flight has announced the KeyForge sourcebook for their Genesys RPG system.
The Force is a strong ally. It turns regular people into superhuman fighting machines. That's handy when you've got a war on. And in the Star Wars universe, there's always a war going on. In Covert Missions for Star Wars: Destiny, new blue characters and their accompanying support cards will be added to the card pool. Get a look at what that will include in this preview.
The Hotshots and Aces expansion for X-Wing will add a whole bunch of pilots to the roster when you're building your squadrons. It's an expansion for everyone, including new cards for every faction. In this preview, we get a look at some of the Imperial, New Order, and Scum & Villainy pilots that are coming in the set. Want to know who's going to be hopping into the cockpit? Take a look for yourself.
