    So Reckless Lycanthropy will be the reward, it seems. That's quite a good reward, will be great for the handicap quests.

    Youch, I can see why these will be level 21 modules, I'm looking forward to seeing what other crazy cards we'll see. And a 4-stage module, it's been a while since we've last had one of those!

    Here's hoping CoC Mokad will get Wail.

    The text on Wail isn't correct :)

    Even at emerald, Too Horrible feels like it should be 3+, rather'n 2.
    At the very least, between that and Shield Block's changes, Laser Block is looking like a worse and worse emerald by comparison.. :X
     
  10. It's probably supposed to say FLAVOR FlAVOR instead.

    Maybe a cone attack with some range... maybe 'all characters' rather than 'enemies'...

    Honestly, when I first read it, I had to reread it to make sure that wasn't what it said. That's just where my mind jumped to [based both on the comparative value of emerald to amethyst, and how such a mechanic typically works in similar games].
    After that, I just assumed the fact that it wasn't unblockable is what served as a counter-balance. If that's in place, then I can only assume Manchu intentionally wants Amethysts to stand out noticeably in potency.

    Balancing aside, at first consideration I'm definitely more in favor of a clear-all-blocks [regardless of ownership] mechanic, since that has more inherent strategic depth than a 'screw my enemies' mechanic.
    Oh well, no way of telling how it'll play out till it plays out. But if it's as indicated thus far, definitely hope Manchu gives it actual time for testing before launching it, unlike RTS just a moment ago. :confused:

    My main concern, however, is that CM already offered noticable power creep- but given that it helped balance item slots a lot better, it seemed a positive thing.
    But with Too Horrible and Wail now being pushed out.. it's a bit worrisome, at first glance. I've seen too many MMOs crash and burn once they stop sticking to a restrained sense of balancing.

    I've assumed that those new CM cards would be monster-only campaign cards.

    So, we will be getting an Aloyso's about Mitternacht cards, right? Hmm, what item idea would be good....

    *inserts one of the new CM cards*

    I can confirm that players will never get these cards.

    Oh, I'm so used to not-intended-for-player cards having utterly silly quality values, that the mostly reasonable assignments here threw me off.
    Well then, by all means- these seem like they'd be fun to play against. :)

    Can we keep the flavor text on Freezing Blade just as "FLAVOR FLAVOR"? It's hilarious.
