We're well into the latter half of the year. So, it's time to start thinking about the holiday season. In November, Privateer Press will be bringing you some new Riot Quest and <whoop! whoop! whoop!> Monsterpocalypse releases available for you. And before someone goes, "hey, wait. Didn't we see some of this already?" the answer is yes. Some of these were originally slated for earlier in the year but got delayed.
When Karchev the Terrible made the mistake of clamping the Skulls of Hate onto his own warjack body, he became one of the most malicious monstrosities the wintertime wasteland has ever seen! The Karchev & Deathjack combo cares not for loot or gear, fortune, or glory…they exist only to destroy. This expansion introduces a new co-op Boss Fight experience in which 1–4 players can battle their Crews against a super-powered Karchev & Deathjack. The solo mode can be a bit of a challenge!
Additionally, the Karchev & Deathjack model can be played as a standard member of a player’s Crew in any game mode of Riot Quest using the normal Hero stat card and Riot Gear cards included!
The normally dour Sir Dreyfus has found new joy in life, thanks to a most unusual partner. While raiding the shattered remnants of an old bank vault, Dreyfus first encountered the lovable gobber Flubbin. They were, at the time, on opposing crews, both seeking the same loot. During the battle, Dreyfus fostered respect for the small gobber’s combat prowess, while Flubbin became infatuated with the “Funny talking shiny guy in the flying suit of armor that is gonna be SO MUCH BETTER THAN MY BALLOON!” After the heist, the pair left to start their own crew.
Flubbin has made several modifications to Dreyfus’ Storm Knight armor, installing a “boomin’” propulsion system for maximum airborne velocity, as well as a tiny saddle to ride on. In return, she has agreed to help Dreyfus build a crew to patrol the wastes from the skies, intent on keeping the innocent folk of the world safe…if any are left.
Riot Quest Heist is a brand-new way to play the game using your favorite Heroes, Riot Gear, and Arena maps with an entirely new path to victory. In Heist, you won’t be earning Scrap or Bounty cards until one player has earned seven victory points. Instead, you’ll be stealing Treasure Chests from around the Arena and trying to return them to your home base before the game ends, all while fending off your opponents, the security system trying to thwart your every move, and the bots on patrol.
This expansion supports free-for-all play for up to 4 players in Riot Quest and includes the new Gunner Hero Princess Delores Graciela and a new Riot Gear card!
The Shinobi of the Shadow Sun Syndicate are trained in a plethora of different martial disciplines, including instilling mental strength. Fighting monsters on a battlefield hand to hand requires a certain mental fortitude that few possess.
Among the rare elite spawnings of the bellowers are some that turn their already destructive booming roar into something much more deadly. When they unleash their blasts they blow past the sound barrier with such quick acceleration that the air in the immediate area super heats.
The hounds of the Draken Armada act as the eyes, ears, and noses of the Faction’s surveillance force; however, unlike some scouting units, the elite coursers can also act as a vanguard, ripping apart foes even before the main force arrives.
As the destruction of the Monsterpocalypse mounts, leading to more and more industrial waste and gruesome battlefields across the planet, The Waste’s toxic nature just continues to amplify. The animated sludge of elite Toxxos is so corrosive, it can burn through metal, glass, and concrete alike.
The greatest eldritch horrors of the Cthul can often pervert the natural order of things with their vile magic. Sometimes a rare elite among their forces is granted a fraction of this ability. The elite Squix uses this tithe of power to disrupt small events around it, creating misfortunate cascades.
Designed for utter lethality, the Ubercorp’s latest creation is a perfect mechanical duplication of the valiant Shinobi of the Shadow Sun Syndicate. Unlike most of Ubercorp’s other designs, the Shinobot favors speed and precise motion, requiring powerful supercomputers only the company’s scientists can create.
Robo Kondo is designed to be the crowning glory of Ubercorp. A massive and very much over-engineered machine in its own right, Robo Kondo is also accompanied by some of the most powerful robots in the company’s arsenal. Each time the massive automaton enters the battlefield, Ubercorp spares no expense, ensuring that the deployment will awe any potential investors who might be watching the carnage. To anyone with much sense, Ubercorp is only a company bloated by multiple countries’ massive contracts, often at the expense of any actually useful response to the monsters that plague Earth.
Zor-Voltis is a combat expert that has been enhanced with powerful electrical currents running all through his body. These can be used as a direct weapon, sending balls of lightning forward to smash into foes, often causing the power to arc to those nearby. The real power, however, is in his massively enhanced reaction speeds. His entire nervous system operates on an order of magnitude faster than other creatures. This, combined with his unparalleled martial prowess, allows him to anticipate and swiftly react to all manner of attacks directed at him.
