CincyCon 2017 and New Cards

posted Feb 25, 2017, 11:25 PM by Tim Kennard
Less than a week away from CincyCon in Hamilton, OH. Things are looking very good. It should be an excellent convention. Several GM/Wardens will be running games to please any DS player, whether Classic, Hybrid, or 2.0. Veteran players will be there, and we hope to see some new faces, as well.

There are 3 new 2.0 sets and several new single cards. Here is the line-up:

Set 130 - Dwarf: This is the first new racial set since the Orc sets. Cards include Busting a Move, Dead Dwarf Walking, Dwarf Sight, Dwarf Warp Adaptation, Dwarven Muscles, Dwarven Stamina, Mountain Prowess, Nice Shot, and Underground Prowess.

Set 319 - Blackwind Blood Evolution: This is the first of the clan sets. Cards include Astral Cloud, Astral Strike, Blackwind Boost, Blackwind Surge One, Blackwind Surge Two, Blackwind Surge Three, Sense Astral Marker, Unexpected Strike, and Unseen Firebreath.

Set 328 - Unarmed Combat: This is the first set of unarmed combat cards. Cards include Brawler, Chop, Combo Attack, Disarm, Elude, Flurry Strikes, Get Behind, Get Inside, and Surprise Sprint. This set is intended only for humanoids, or shifted forms that appear humanoid, meaning having arms and legs. It is not intended for larger shifted forms like Boosted, Greater, or Prime; the only shifted humanoid forms they should be used with are the 1-point basic forms. It will be up to the GM/Warden to regulate this card. Allowing it to be used with larger forms or with non-humanoids would be quite unbalancing indeed. I wish I could have squeezed a sufficient explanation onto the cards, but it just wasn't possible without using microscopic font sizes. ;-)

And now, the Singles. These cards were originally in a beta Elethay set; but, it wasn't a complete set, and some of the cards aren't Elethay cards. So, I decided to get them into your hands as singles. They are:

Elethay Acolyte Background: This new background allows you to start a character as an Acolyte.
Elethay Acoltye: This is the anchor version which could be added to an existing character.
Elethay Worshipper: An existing character must be a worshipper before becoming an Acolyte.
Elethay Priestess: This boon allows an Acolyte to become a Priest/Priestess.
Regulate the Life: This card allows the voluntary and permanent donation of role playing points into an Elethay Altar to strengthen it, the Stone, and the Temple.
Tuning Ritual: From what we know of Draconic Lore and History, Temple Channel Stones were attuned to Plinths inside Clanholds and fed them power. This is the first Ritual card which outlines exactly how a stone is tuned for these purposes.

If you're in the Butler County area this coming March 3-5, stop by the Bulter County Fairgrounds and see us at CincyCon. We'd love to see you, even if just to vist. :-)
