Anybody catch truth's interview?
This morning I noticed a thread started by Doc_Savage over on heroscapers.com regarding Summoner Wars in the 'Other Board Games' forum. In it he makes mention of an interview he did with Colby (truth) regarding Summoner Wars.
The interview can be found here.
The part that I find most interesting?
When will we know if any expansion decks will be published?
I fully intend to release expansions. A time-frame for release is really dependant on how quickly sales provide the funding for printing expansions. I will tell you that I just commissioned my artist to start work on illustrations for the Fallen Kingdom, a faction of undead that will be among the first expansions released. So look for previews of that art soon.
What are the first expansion decks going to be?
The Fallen Kingdom - An undead Faction Deck. The Vanguards - A righteous, knightly, human order Faction Deck. A Reinforcement Pack with more Guild Dwarves, Cave Goblins and mercenaries. A Reinforcement Pack with more Phoenix Elves, Tundra Orcs and mercenaries.
Let the speculation about the undead and rightious knights begin.
How much longer...that's all I want to know. I'm so impatient
Thanks for pointing this out rym.
This sounds great. I'm so excited for an Undead faction! That was what I was hoping for the most, so it's great that it's coming out first along with knights.
I can't wait.
Two words: AWE SOME!
The Knights need Longbow men and we still need Cyrpien's Skeleton army.
Truth told me, "I'm going to make undead fans poop."
[Although those two factions were definitely hinted at on the story page in the rulebook, so it shouldn't come as a huge shock].
I'm interested to see what the new factions can do as well. So far, he has done a very good job of making each faction feel unique.
There has also been a mention of those two new factions on the "Description" page, so the mention of them in the interview didn't come as a surprise. http://www.plaidhatgames.com/sum_about.html
(I still thought it was a really cool interview, though!)
