I'm torn. The potion tended to get in the way last game. I'm not sure if I want to run with it. The Command Scroll does seem super useful however.

I could theoretically carry the potion ... I have this habit of going nom nom nom on misty steps the moment they hit the market.

(Misty step is the official wizard card, even though it is part of the normal market deck)

Rockface Moonstaff
Class: Wizard
Race: Half-orc
Market cards: none
Features: Wealthy (10xp)
Pack: 1G,2M,4A,1D,1 Burning Hands, 1 Detect Magic, (maybe)1 Potion of Healing?(maybe)

Attuned: burning hands (one in inventory still not used)

Rockface is a half orc with an orc mother and an unknown father. He grew up in the tribe but was continually beaten by the other children and his face is hideous from all the scars from them grinding his half-human face into the rock. He wears a steel plate to hide his visage. Not being strong enough to be a warrior he took up the arcane arts and lived the life of a hermit after he was strong enough to hunt on his own.

Off Topic: I received my expansion pack yesterday. I do like that they are creating alternate art for the basics -- I know some people would rather see new cards, but I still like it :)

I am starting to see more useful commons, which is cool (elven superiority) --- damage icons on common cards really is needed to make them worth packing in many cases.

The truncheon+1 is just funny to me :) -- that mechanic should have been used first for a deception class character though IMO --- (black jack... )

So far, not one of my 'home' characters would ever pack Elven Superiority.

Rhegor
Class: Fighter
Race: Shield Dwarf
Market cards: none/starting Deck: 2 Grace, 4 Glory, 1 Cantrip, 1 Stealth
Features: Wealthy (10xp)

Rhegor is a simple warrior that wants to protect his party members, kill monsters, and get rich and famous while doing so. And occasionally come up with a good plan.

Hit and miss. I've got business travel next week, but I should have some BGG access from the hotel in the evenings.

15xp total, configure as desired, and let us know your sticker loadout and any magic items you're carrying.


We also need to determine marching order - I'd like Rock to not be the Caboose this time.

I would agree to any position but first. I don't want that first turn hit :) ... second turn hit for me.

How about you and Ishmael switch positions, that puts you in second location.

Rhegor
Rock
Sherzo
Barros
Ishmael

Normally I like the Arcane towards the back, but you're Resilient and I have a bad feeling.

I'll take that if our Fighter doesn't want it. Maybe I'll load up on cheap cards and he can focus on the expensive Martial cards to game this.
