Ok...we have FINALLY got this to the table. And I gotta say, very awesome game experience!

Love the art. Simply superb. Gorgeous. I really like the theme.

The dice faces, for the most part, are great theme-wise. For Charm magic, the Snake and the Heart faces make sense. Same for the Ceremonial magic (goat head and knife). The Illusion magic dice works with masks and the wolf head (although, the wolf head is a bit confusing, hut it can still make sense in my head). But the power symbol for the Nature magic really confuses me. The class makes sense with it being a leaf...but why a "frog" for Nature power?

So the two dice faces that I don't quite understand: "frog" for Nature and "wolf head" for Illusion. Why were those two symbols chosen for theme?

I seem to remember that Rin was originally going to be in the core set.

If so, I assume the Nature Power symbol is a direct reference to Frost Bite (also there is a little frost frog in Rin's PB artwork).

Wolves and Masks are direct links to Noah.

Snakes link to Maeoni, Hearts tie into Saria.

Ceremonial's Goats make sense and is maybe a shout out to Jessa's headpiece ... I'm not sure.

Takea look at the masked wolves in NNoah's deck and the frog critter ion frostbite and on Rin's card.

I see....so it is not so much the theme of the school/type of magic, but rather the original Phoenixborn that use that magic.

That makes sense, then. Thanks for the replies.

If I remember correctly even if everybody (me included) call them Wolf, I think that the illusion dice face is supposed to be a Fox.

No, Isaac has confirmed it is a wolf.
