The hype train has plowed into town!

Looks like some old promo stuff (Merlin/Assassin, Inquisitor, Lancelot, Excalibur) + new stuff (Hunter, Trapper modules) and Kickstarter exclusives (Rogue Agent and Sergeant Modules).

Fantastic! I like the theme of The Resistance more, but I like the characters in Avalon more.
The artwork so far looks outstanding!

This is pretty much all the components plus more that I was hoping for from an expansion. I'm also happy I get to stop hearing Avalon fans tell me why this version is not as good.

So I'm on the fence for these expansions/promos since I own both The Resistance and the Avalon versions of the games.

But I haven't played the basic The Resistance version yet.

Looks like Avalon has the same cards/roles these expansions provide. Once these expansions are out, will these 2 versions only be different in theme making owning both mute?

Thanks for your comments,
Pat

As I hinted at in the OP, there is indeed brand new content in both the expansions as well as the Kickstarter Exclusives. Modules that are new to this include:

Hunter, Reverser, Trapper, and Rogue Agent.

From what I can tell, it looks like the content is:

Hostile Intent
Hunter Module: New
Reverser Module: New but sounds similar to having multiple Excaliburs
Inquisitor Module: Lady of the Lake from Avalon
Hidden Agenda
Assassin Module: Original special roles from Avalon
Defector Module: Lancelot Promos from Avalon
Trapper Module: New
KS Exclusive
Rogue Agent Module: New
Sergeant Module: Excalibur Promo from Avalon

This is what I gathered from the info available as well.

On the one hand, $20 is a lot to pay for content I already own, with very little new. And what of the new stuff? Not super likely to make it to the table very often.

Yet, on the other hand...

More Resistance! Give it to me! Take my money!

This coming from someone who has paid for Coup thrice in 2014, for whom the deciding factor might be "SciFi Resistance will pair better with Coup when I make a night of the two of them." Which is technically true, but also falls under the heading of "solution to a problem no one really had."

Oh well, take my money, Indie!

In this designer's opinion the 'Hunters' module is the big value here. It's the next step up from Avalon in every way, and can play a complete 10 player game without a single 'basic' character. Not sure why it's not fleshed out a bit more on KS, but there ya go. ;)

Can you drop us a few more hints Don?

Love the original resistance and looking forward to the additional depth.

Haha, well let's see... Each side has a Chief. Each side has a Hunter. Those are the essential characters for the game, and they need to set about locating and protecting each other, all while succeeding and failing missions. Imagine if killing Merlin weren't a bonus for the Spies, but rather a thing each team HAD to do to secure the win.

Then of course insert all the little rules that make that happen, plus a handful of special characters for kicks.

Is it true then that if someone owns the latest edition of the regular game + this set, that they would have the entirety of Avalon; all the mechanics and roles unique to Avalon?

Yes I believe so, but it's best to ask the publisher to be sure.

Yes! So hyped for these expansions already. Resistance is my favorite game (even though I'm terrible at it)!

Shame that the KS edition at least doesn't come with a card for the Trapper. Leaves 1st edition owners in the dust.

If I had known this was going to happen, I wouldn't have traded away Resistance v2 to pick up a new version of Avalon.

It's pretty annoying that the mechanics are always leap-frogging ahead between the two themes. I see the business sense in it, but as a fan, I would have preferred Avalon and Resistance universes get the mechanics upgrades at the same time.

Now instead I will wait for the Avalon Hunter module.

It wouldn't surprise me if The Resistance is going to be the standard going forward. Avalon was a great improvement to the game, but I don't think it came close to the original in terms of popularity and profitability. I think Coup was also a large success, and that's another tie-in with The Resistance.

I'm okay with this. My copy of The Resitance is a worn out first edition, and I needed a reason to get the new edition. I have Avalon but the box is basically destroyed.

Because the older one's were done in Travis' personal name. He's (wisely) decided to change that.
