Does Devastation and War combine to make the game bigger? or are they separate games? I have Devastation and wasnt sure if I should pick up War.

They do combine. You can play fighters from either game against each other, and arenas from one game can be used with fighters from the other game.

If you own Devastation you have a pretty good idea what War will be like-- it's 18 more fighters you haven't seen before and a bunch of arenas. There's also a "War Extended" expansion with 6 more fighters (new, not from the previous printing of War) and costumes and some other stuff.

Many of the same storyline threads run through both games. If you don't care about story fluff it doesn't matter, but if you do, there are tons of connections...

- Cherri Seneca, in War, is the human form of Lymn, the psychic dog creature in Devastation.

- Heketch, in War, is a creepy nightmare creature originally summoned by Rexan (the politician who gives out Curse tokens to opponents) to kill various kings.

- Kehrolyn, in War, is an artificial person created by Malandrax Mecchi (the mad scientist in Devastation) before he was killed and raised from the dead and renamed.

And so on!

Absolutely!


But in the past, combining them has been less fun because Devestation had such nicer components. That will no longer be an issue!

Yeah they combine.

Since you already have Devastation, just think of War as a giant roster expansion! More fighters = more matchups! The core game is the same, but the characters are totally different. You should totally pledge!

Some more story tid-bits:

-Hepzibah was the one who revived Rexan.
-Demitras serves Rexan along with Hepzibah and Heketch.
-Eligor and Magdelina are cousins.
-Joal and Vanaah are married.
-Hepzibah was the one who revived Aaron Ross (but also made sure to replace his personality), renaming him to Malandrax

So much fluff. ^_^
