Matt from SUSD just posted about it on Twitter.

Are we going to get details soon? Can I have it? Now?

That is so exciting! I can't wait to hear more about what kind of stuff the expansion has in it. Hopefully SUSD discuss it on their next podcast

Mmm, intersting. There's the obvious season board thing, but also a land tile that's been renamed and couple of small wooden meeples possibly proxying something not yet sculpted.

Any speculation on what the seasons-bit might be, or how it might work?

Confirmation from Matt on Twitter that there will be a 5th player in the expansion as well.

They already announced that bit. The new colour will be black.

Looks like each season has some passive and/or triggered effect on the game. I assume they cycle every round.

The easiest to read is Winter, which says

"End Of assembly - Samhain
Each player may discard one Action card to draw one Epic Tale card

Season
No more than 3 clans my be moved by any single card"

The other three are almost legible

Spring seems to say

"End of assembly - Imbolc
The player(s) having the least cards places a clan in one territory where he is present. The player(s) having the most cards loses a clan in any territory. If everyone has the same number of cards nobody places or loses a clan.

Season - No effect"

Summer seems to say

"End of assembly - Beltane
Each player places a clan in a [illegible] territory where he is present.

Season
During his turn, [in this season phase?], a player may discard one Action to move up to 3 of his clans from one territory to one adjacent territory."

Autumn is the hardest to read. It seems to say

"End of Assembly - Lugnasad
Each player having more than [3?] Epic Tale Cards discard the excess. For each discarded the Brenn chooses a player except himself, that player adds a clan in a territory of his choice where he is present.

Season
No Effect"

There are two renamed land tiles. They're probably just playtest versions of new tiles in the expansion, I don't think we should read too much into what tiles they were renamed from.

I want to know more about the new green cards and new buildings. Is anybody actually at SHUX and can check it out?

Wow, I was at SHUX, played Inis from their game library, but did not see any expansion, nor hear of anyone talking about it, despite Inis being played quite a bit there.

I heard about the expansion at SHUX on Saturday night, when the person who had donated their copy of Inis to the game library taught me and three other people how to play. He was one of the people who got to play the expansion along with the SU&SD crew. Said the new cards really seem to speed up the game with 5 players. Also mentioned the seasons mechanic.

I'd guess one of the meeples from the picture is used for tracking the season. No idea about the other.
