G'day guys,

Just wondering if there was a typo on the cards or in the rulebook.

My rulebook states that I should replace C7 in the call to arms deck with the c7 from Horrific Hordes, but there is no c7 in Horrific Hordes - C3 is the one in Horrific Hordes with the Creature on it.

Anyone else know what's going on?

Cheers,
Ben.

Looks like yet another FFG error in BL.

Swap out C3 from the CtA deck and replace with the new card. A7, B7 and C3 were the only cards that had a creature symbol on them from the old CtA decks.


I hate to be rude, but do they really pay the guy who proof reads the BL releases ?

Thanks Mike.
Had a game this afternoon - very enjoyable.

Battlelore really is one of my very favourite games. I do hope they continue to release stuff for it.

I would love to see more races and race specific heroes.

Cheers,
Ben.

Typo in the rulebook as the replacement card and new card have the same C3 number.

To be fair, this is really DOW's "mistake" as the other 5 decks have the creature on card #7 and the Pennant C deck breaks the mold and puts it on card 3.

FFG wrote the rule book without checking their assumptions. FFG error.

That aside though - what do you think of the set? Are the deployment cards in HH okay, good or fantastic? That's what I want to know!! laugh

I'll be getting it regardless at some point in the near future - and holding out hope for an announcement on more soon...

Cheers,

Giles.

I like the Call to Arms cards.
They effectively function the same as when the humans were the main race. Specialist cards will replace most human units.

I do like them, but thought it would have been better to have a Goblin only Call to Arms deck.

I thought it was great that they were included in the HH release.

I really do hope that they expand Battlelore beyond its current three races. I think it has too much unrealised potential (and Borg has so many great races already created that I want to use!) that it would seem a real shame (and missed opportunity) to pass up on it.

Listening to Kouba try and answer questions about Battlelore on the D6 podcast made me very nervous. He didn't seem to want to give much away about what's coming after the Dwarf expansion (if anything).

So I would suggest everyone to buy HH to show FFG that people do want Battlelore to continue.

Cheers,
Ben.

That's a shame. Hopefully he was just shy because FFG don't seem to like giving away too much too soon. I too would love to see this game supported to realise it's potential. Race specific CtA decks like the HH ones would be great. A scenario book following a similar pattern to the Memoir campaign books or even the Tide of Iron scenario book would be fantastic. More on the setting - or a fully fledged fantasy setting of it's own.

A second ed FFG edition...

Sigh.

I live in hope... laugh

Cheers,

Giles.
