I talked to Patrick a lot over the last few days at BGG Con (awesome guy) and he showed me the art for the female Warlock and Dwarf Warlord. I assume these are the part of the Forged in Flame expansion (similar to Conquest of Kumanjaro). They looked AMAZING. I don't know if they are out for view yet but what I saw really blew me away. The art for this game is, hands down, some of the best anywhere and it keeps getting better.

So this means the other sub expansion will later be the Wizard and Forcemaster alternates after Siren vs. Paladin.

I can see that.

Both of these are total must buys also.

I was expecting the female Wizard vs female Warlock. But this works too.

I agree with Donny - the artwork is simply amazing for this game, and I am excited about the expansions. Additionally, I heard that there are 2 new games planned for the start of next year from Arcane Wonders. With the quality of components and game play of Mage Wars alone, I'm pretty stoked about anything they produce.

I think those are planned too. I also had some good conversations with the Mage Wars folks at BGG Con.

Me too but I guess they have brought forward the Warlord as its the class that needs most fixing/beefing up. I'm also surprised that they did not made it Warlord vs. (female) Wizard as we will have 3 Dark Mages with the next expansion then.

So does this mean we are waiting to see frost damage introduced in August with the Siren, or will they throw in some frost damage finally in the Forged in Flame expansion?

I expected it to be introduced with the Druid vs. Necromancer but from all spoilers I have seen it is not here yet.

I am excited either way, it is just odd that they have hinted at frost from set 1 and it still is not here yet after all these new sets.

What do you mean? This is the female warlord. (It's hard to tell with dwarves, so I'll forgive you the mistake

I agree. The giveaway is the chain male under the plate. No dwarf male would ever wear something so light and dainty.

I am thinking the Siren is to water what the Druid is to Nature/plants. I bet you see a ton of water spells, ice/steam/liquid as well as summoning sea creatures, maybe water walls, pools or rivers that could spawn creatures, like maybe creating a lake in a zone and having something like the tentacle beast from Lord of the Rings summoned up out of it to drag creatures down and drown them or eat them, etc. I bet there's a spell that floods the whole arena and turns it into an undersea environment and have water breathing enchantments so you and your creatures can get around, maybe a swimming spell to go faster through the water, maybe you can transform into a shark, etc. Go nuts, Arcane Wonders. Bring it.

Thanks, was wondering what the next expansions were going to be (and I like alternating small-large expansions, although I generally only buy the large sets). Probably don't need Conquest for Priest with Paladin coming out eventually.

My guess is that there will be no male version of the Siren either, so they should eventually balance.

That's a good possibility, but I still think the dwarf is a female. People just don't know how to tell dwarf genders apart.

I think the hair bracelets in the beard are a dead giveaway that this is a female.
