Wow! Just wow!

If I wasn’t crazy for this game before then I am now. From Jenny’s balanced stat line to Jim and Rex’s terrible curses.

This game is awesome!

And the art is too die for.

I have no evidence, no inside information, and no proof. I am making this up.

Ashcan Pete is the Survivor. There's no way they're not going to introduce him in time to ride the rails on the Essex, and there isn't a character in all the games better suited to Survivor. Plus everybody loves Duke, and this will be the first character-specific Ally. His weakness will have something to do with losing and/or not being able to gain Resources. Maybe put ten Resources on the card or gain trauma at the end. Call it Empty Pockets.

Ashcan Pete seems to make sense as a Survivor anyway, whenever he arrives.

So what's the deal with the X cost of Jenny's guns?
That text box doesn't look like it has significant text defining X.
I'd suppose it would be "Uses (X Ammo)", nothing else would seem to fit.

(Edit: I guess either +fight or +damage could also be x, but that might get extreme fast.)


Shortcut is going to rock for Roland. I've had him eat multiple AoOs to drag a bunch of engaged enemies to locations with clues; since this is fast it not only saves the action, but also doesn't cause the AoOs in such situations. Neat.

Somebody said something to make me think that you could spend Resources on Ammo when you equipped the guns, that would fit her theme.

I'm loving Rex. Seekers are very quickly shaping up to be my favorite class. It seems like his unique item allows him to draw cards based on the number of something on Rex - which I assume to be clues. As Seekers are the main clue-getters - that's a fantastic ability.

It also works with her getting 2 resources per phase. So at the very least you're getting 2 ammo, most likely more.
