Yes, this thread comes from my own desperation/boredom for not having Tyrants in my possesion yet and not having any more spoilers either.

So I was wondering, what is it about tyrants? are they just another keyword like "human" or "dinosaur"? or do they have some special rule or ability to use? maybe they're like playable demigod cards?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tyrant

A tyrant (Greek τύραννος, tyrannos), in its modern English usage, is an absolute ruler unrestrained by law or constitution, or one who has usurped legitimate sovereignty.

Yes I am aware of the general meaning of the word . I meant rather what are they in the context of the game. It strikes me that the expansion seems to be all about them but we still don't know anything about how they work/what they are.

Rob described the Tyrants in the Dice Tower interview as main characters in the expansion. There are other cards in the expansion that refer to the Tyrants, but the term Tyrant has no impactful difference from human or demon.

I also believe that you met the King of the Forest, Mei, and meeting him is a sign of good luck.

I'm hoping for more of those "Take that" cards where we target the player directly. That way my opponents will be like "Stop it you tyrant!"

At least one can hope.

It's more of a storyline thing, but who knows what the future will hold?
