Guild Ball


Thursday Terrain Corner

Happy Friday Eve, everyone.

We're just about to the weekend, and I know mine's going to be filled with gaming. I've got D&D both tomorrow night and all day Saturday. Should be a good time had by all. The DM of one game is recently getting into terrain stuff, so I know she's always excited when it's time for another Terrain Corner. I hope you're excited, too. So anyway, let's get to it.

Today we have: WizKids Announces Icons of the Realms: The Falling Star Sailing Ship and Deep-Cut Studio Releases Official Falconer's Guild Pitch.

Steamforged Previews Windfinder For The Navigator's Guild

Every ship needs a captain. Same can be said for a Guild Ball team. In this case, the two are the same person. Windfinder is the Navigator's Guild captain both aboard the ship and on the pitch. The captain also tends to define how the team works. So, how do the Navigators work? Let's take a look.

Steamforged Announces New Big League For Guild Ball

Sports, generally speaking, are meant to be played as a tourney or as part of a league. You have your event or season, and the teams play games/matches against each-other over the course of it. For Guild Ball, that was the Big League, originally released in Season 2. Well, the game has changed quite a bit since then, and now Steamforged is updating the Big League for Season 4.

Steamforged Previews Fathom for Navigator's Guild

In every Minor Guild, there's two players that can work with the Major Guild the team's tied to. Fathom is one of the two for the Navigator's Guild, being able to play up to the Fisherman's Guild, my personal favorite Guild. On that team, Angel is one of my favorite players, and almost always hits the pitch when I play. So, when I see that Fathom works very well with Angel, I'm like, "yes. This is a thing that pleases me." Check out all she can do in this new preview.

Steamforged Previews Horizon For Navigator's Guild

The Navigator's Guild is the minor guild for the Fisherman's Guild in Guild Ball (Guild! Guild! Guild! Guild! Guild! Have I typed it enough now?). They are the first team that will be released under Season 4 rules. So, getting a preview of their stats, we get a bit of a look at how Season 4 will work along with it. In this first preview, we check out Horizon. Don't let the front of the card confuse you, the back's where it's at.

Steamforged Previews Season 4 Guild Ball

A couple years ago, I had a whole thing about a "year of new editions" as various games were getting updates. I really should've been doing that this year, too. X-Wing, Pathfinder, Age of Sigmar all got new editions, just to name a few. Another game that's upping the edition number this year is Guild Ball. It's coming this fall, and seeing as it's so soon, Steamforged has posted up their first preview of what we can expect.

Steamforged Previews Veteran Cinder For Guild Ball

The Blacksmith's Guild is unlike any other Guild in Guild Ball. They don't have a dedicated Captain. They don't have mascots. It's just pairs of Masters and Apprentices. But even with time, not all Apprentices become Masters immediately. Some have to work at it. In this case, we get a look at Veteran Cinder, who is still an Apprentice in the Guild.

Steamforged Previews Veteran Fangtooth For Guild Ball

During the Union in Chains event for Guild Ball, just about every Union member was accounted for... just about. One that seemed to slip off the radar was Fangtooth. Whatever happened to him? Well, it seems that the Solthecian church found him, gave him a bath (or probably several), and has outfitted him with some new armor and weapons. The big guy's making his way back to the pitch, and you can check out his rules in this preview.

Steamforged Previews Veteran Chisel for Guild Ball

As the players in Guild Ball grow, they change (as we all do). Their careers go through different phases. That's where the Veteran versions come in. The player has seen some stuff, and they're now focused on new aspects of the play and themselves. In today's preview, we get a look at Chisel. A bit of a wild-child, going out and just stabbing anyone she could, she's mellowed over the years and is now more team-focused.
