Hi all,
I"m very excited for this upcoming expansion for Xia! I purchased the base game over a year ago and absolutely love it. I was too late to back it on kickstarted and missed out on the original Sellsword.

So now that Embers of a Forsaken Star is currently running, I'm wondering what the benefits are of choosing the "Embers + Sellsword V2" over just backing for the "Embers" expansion?

What is contained in the Sellsword V2 package? I see there will be model for the Sellsword ship itself (which I understand is an NPC). What are the cards that come with the Sellsword? Is it just the card that explains the NPC's movement? or will there be additional Mission cards and/or Event or Title cards?

Thanks,
Robert

Only one card comes with the Sellsword add-on. It details the Sellsword ability much like the Merchant or Enforcer cards did in the base game.
The new event, title, and mission cards can be had in the base "Embers" expansion.

1/2 the price of the expansion for a single ship that seems quite important to the game? Grrr....

I went for it, but I am not completely happy about only getting a ship and card for that $20.

How many places are you planning on posting about this? It's actually not that important to the game. Many backers of the original KS claim that they don't ever use it.

I replied in one thread, then found another talking explicitly about it, but I suppose I could post on several more if you wanted more to read.
