One wonderful aspect of Summoner Wars that many players aren't even aware of is the backstory and lore associated with the game. Written by Mr. Bistro, each Summoner Wars unit has bio text associated with it, which tells the history of Itharia and the latest happenings in the Summoner Wars.

Tonight I just posted bios for all the champions and commons for the second summoner that have been previewed so far, as well as the longer bios for Frick and Bolvi (click the links to go to their pages directly). Torgan and Queen Maldaria bios have not yet been posted.

Sorry for the delay on these; I had to reprogram the card display to account for the fact that we now have multiple summoners. (Yes, there are still some bugs, especially for units with apostrophes in their names.) The rest of these should be up within 24 hours of the previews going up.

Enjoy some new tales of Itharia!

I love Bolvi's bio. I love love love it. Go read it guys, it's worth a thought. I mean, where do these Summoning Stones really come from? Inspires me to read everybody else's.

Edit: Ret-Talus is below his Event list. Oh and Joe, just a suggestion, group Filth Commons and Mutations apart, but still under the same Commons list. :)

According to one of the dwarf champion bios, Mad Sirian will be fighting alongside Cultists. I guess FK is getting cultists of their own, unless Filth are for some reason fighting alongside undead now.

Adam the FK already have Cultists of their own.

Frick's starting setup is nice, but Bolvi's is questionable. I guess we need to see what Oath Sworn does first.

Also, Maldaria's starting setup protects nicely against MV's Rushers.

Ulrick's bio has a repeated paragraph. Love them all otherwise! I'm actually looking forward to playing a 2v2 of the 2 dwarf summoners vs the 2 cave goblin summoners!

Oh duh, completely forgot. Having the same card titles across factions sometimes confuses me, haha.

Funny. None of the new summoners have a starting unit in a backrow :) From the previous 16 summoners, only 2 have a setup without a unit in the backrow (Tundle, Senderved).

Just wondering if it was a concious design choice, or if it is just a coincidence.

I've loved catching up on the bios recently, and these new ones are no exception. Very fun!
