Two new expansion decks for Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn are up for pre-order in the PlaidHatGames.com store!

LeoVictoria

The Roaring Rose, featuring new Phoenixborn Leo Sunshadow, uses charms dice, supporting your own units and eating through your opponent's deck.

The Duchess of Deception, featuring new Phoenixborn Victoria Glassfire, is the ultimate illusion deck, manipulating dice and cards and relying on surprise!

Both can be pre-ordered today, and when you order from PlaidHatGames.com, you can now receive Orrick Gilstream, a new exclusive Phoenixborn with his exclusive ally, Gobi Sunshield. Like Dimona and Lulu before him, Orrick requires a customized deck from other sets to build out his deck and play.

Orrick can also be pre-ordered separately.

Previews start right here at PlaidHatGames.com very soon!
Pre-order the new decks today!

Note: Ahead of pre-orders shipping, know that a limited number of copies will be sent directly to Gen Con. These copies will be entirely separate from the pre-orders, and we will not be offering a pre-order pick up at Gen Con. While this isn’t our preference and we’d like the pre-orders to be shipped prior to the show, we can’t guarantee their arrival prior to the time of the show.

So, Leo... you're an immortal sorcerer and the look you decided to go with was "Man-bun while holding outstretched rose." I think you'd fit in better on "The Bachelor." #PoorLifeChoices

Jokes aside, I'm really looking forward to the options these new decks bring.

Victoria looks more funny to play than Leo.

Orrick is a new Rin's Fury, no? Also he has 4 colored balls. Do they hint at the 4 elements?

Red for fire, blue for water, green for wind and yellow for earth? His unit's name contains "sun", so I suppose it is a reference to the influence of that star on the planet.

This stays a theory, unless someone proves me wrong. Maybe does it simply mean there are different dice types required for his ability.

I'll leave comments about general awesomeness for the actual previews, for now I got two practical questions:

Will the "special shipping" options be available for non-US customers like for earlier preorders?

With the decks preorder you can pick a promo PB - does it mean I can pick one for every deck prordered? Could I end up with two Orrick if I so chose, or with an Orrick and an additional Lulu?

Seriously can't wait for these previews, I hope it will be a mere matter of days now!

I waited on the last two decks, will they be available to order/pre-order again soon?

I've been looking to build a mono deck of some sort w/ either Saria or Aradel.

But Victoria is a name of special meaning to me. I think I'll just buy her instead. =D

@Quasar I think the orbs are probably representing the dice set- although they are not the same color as the dice (black, purple, pink, blue) they are the same color as the symbols on them (yellow-Charm, red-Ceremonial, blue-Illusion, green-Natural) which represents the magic/power.

Looks like Orrick is trying to encourage a more diverse dice set. And the Gobi Sunshield is going to be a great counter to that damn Freeze ability that Bears have. Also will it encourage people playing Iron Rhinos to deal with them? I hope so.

I also think it's going to be extremely satisfying Hammer Knight-ing Leo to the face- that man bun.

A note to Leo, You're lovely and don't let the Haters keep you down! Now I need to go watch some Bollywood though.

I'd also like to know if the special shipping is available for these as well ... p.s. I'd also like to buy some more dice :)

So Leo has two unique cards like Rin? Interesting.
I'm assuming that's the Glow Finch flying around in his artwork.

jgibbo90 commented:

@Lalo interesting you say this because I pointed this out about Rin a while back but was corrected- his Rin's Fury (white card) is his unique card and his Ice Buff is just a conjuration (black card) that's also unique to him. Even though it's not the same as say Summon Blue Jaguar (white card) and the blue Jaguars themselves (black card). I do feel you're right though- if it has their face in the corner- the card is unique regardless of its a conjuration or not.

Lalo commented:

Exactly, the conjuration and the summon card count as one card in my opinion, so a Phoenixborn with a summon ability technically has 2 unique cards.

Quasar commented:

For me, there's a difference to make.

It's true that Ice Buff is only summonable through Rin's skill. It means it isn't his unique card - but Rin is the only way to get it.

It is a bit complex, it looks like a new mechanic without being new in any way.

For cards like the blue feline, it only counts as 1 card. Because one of them is necessary to use the other. In other words, if you don't have Summon, you don't get the conjuration. This is why I think the Jaguars shouldn't have the Aradel unique symbol, as it is obvious you can't use them with another Phoenixborn.

EDIT: Jgibbo, I didn't pay attention to it. You're right.

Two more days, two more days before the Glow Finch is revealed and I can speak again.

Bolga commented:

Two more days? I thought the previews were starting on the 21st?

Posted on 2016-06-13.

MightyToenail commented:

Apparently I was wrong. Yeah prob 21st.

Does anyone NOT look at Leo and see Joe Jonas? Emiright? Only slightly creepy... Victoria is vibe-ing a bit Parker Posey for sure, but Leo is the spitting image of Joe. From what I hear, anyway.

Love the new characters. Any update on international / special shipping for these?

It's a shame you guys don't have a European branch / distributor - there's a ton of your stuff I'd love to buy but the customs + shipping charges make it unrealistic.
