At Gen Con, Steamforged will have a lot of new Guild Ball figures available early. It'll be your first chance to pick up many of the new Season 2 figures. I know I've got my list of what I want to get. And while that doesn't include the Vileswarm for the Mortician's Guild (since, y'know, I don't play the Morticians), that just means you don't have to worry about me snatching up the last one before you get there.
You know, I had a friend who kept rats. There's nothing particularly nasty about them. But I guess if I saw them acting as though via a "hive mind" and crawling over skulls and such, I'd be concerned about them getting too close to me. They're still kinda cute, though.
