Steamforged Previews Scourge for Ratcatcher's Guild

The Minor Guilds will change the dynamic of Guild Ball. They're their own teams, but also tied with a Major Guild. The Ratcatchers are the Minor Guild for the Morticians. So death and decay is part of what they're about. Also, rats are well-known to carry diseases. The Ratcatchers bring a new Condition to the game, Disease. And Scourge is one of the main carriers. Get a look at this stat cards and mini in this preview.




From the post:

Scourge was one of the last Ratcatcher concepts to be created. There was a gap in the team for a ‘big guy’ and we really wanted to make him something special. The original pitch for Scourge was effectively that he was the one person who didn’t look at Veteran Katalyst and turn away in disgust, oh no, not Scourge. Scourge was the one person crazy enough to be in complete awe of what Katalyst had turned himself into. As such, he came to the conclusion that he wanted to be like his idol. Scourge only had two problems with this plan. 1. Scourge was nowhere near as clever as Katalyst once was, and 2. Scourge was a sewerperson with no money. So Scourge decided to do the only thing he knew how to do, catch as many rats as he possibly could and eat them all to try to become as big and strong as his role model… it didn’t quite turn out like he’d hoped…
