Does anyone have these cards? How are they with the game? Do they enhance gameplay? More options? Or more of the same?

I have them for completions sake, but only acquired them recently so haven’t played them.

I would recommend them simply for variety’s sake; not that they’re needed, but because they add gameplay value.

I have them, got them straight form Garphill games' website, Shem sells used to have the deck of extra villagers+1hero as a standalone component.

They add extra actions and strategies, like adding a counterbalance against the traders and merchants from the original game, increasing the value of cattle at the end, adding a couple of quick ways to get extra resources and silver, and taking avantage of your valkyrie count, plus you don't need to have Runesaga or the other two games to use any of the new villagers, none of their actions or effects connect with anything outside the base game.

Of course, as you shuffle them with all the original villagers their appearance is entirely up to chance. They may or may not have a big impact in any single game depending on when (or if) they are drawn, but add a bit of variety.

Where? I can't find anything like that on garphill.com or Renegade games store.

Ah sorry Shem I was referring to whether the villager cards for Raiders, from runesaga would ever become available again.

The ones I sold were spare parts from my first printing of Runesaga. I wouldn't print them as a standalone product.
