Last time I saw something on the add-on characters it seemed like the Ghoul was still really strong and the Ghost was a little confusing. I also saw something about new cards watering down decks (treasure?).

Are the add-on characters close to being balanced/sent for printing? Also, any updates on expansion cards?

All of the files for the addons and expansion cards can be found in the Public PNP folder here: www.tinyurl.com/VastPublicPNP (in the Expansion subfolder)

The expansion/promo cards are included in that folder too, as part of the 9-up card file.


The rulebooks in the folder are marked as "DRAFT" copies, and have already been through another round or two of edits beyond what's there. Player boards, cards, etc. for each of the roles have also been through some final editing. The changes between what's in the folder and the final-final versions will be minimal, mostly just tweaks to the wordings for clarity.


Balance-wise, and with the rules themselves, what you see in the folder is essentially done. All of the issues and concerns that have been raised previously have all been addressed in one way or another. There's one small rule addition for the Ghost that we're testing and evaluating (to address a specific endgame situation), but otherwise we're very happy with how all of the roles are sitting.

You can check out the individual threads for each if you want more specific details on what has changed along the line:
The Ghoul
The Ghost
The Unicorn
Promo Cards



As far as schedule goes, we're right on the verge of sending these off to the printer. Just those few final updates to the layouts they'll be off.

Also, if you haven't already seen it, there's an unboxing video with prototypes of the miniatures here: Miniature Unboxing

As a person that made a lot of criticism myself, I can say that they've done a fantastic job. I'm legitimately excited to get my hands on this stuff. :)
