How come we haven't seen a character expansion for Runebound? (i.e. a collection of a couple character miniatures and cards sold together).
It seems we've seen every other kind of expansion under the sun, but not just normal extra characters. Fantasy Flight isn't actually shy about expanding their games and something like this would seem to be a natural thing to do.

You get new characters in the big box expansions.

Who knows, maybe with the new promo characters they do something like this. Still, I'd rather by an expansion that comes with more characters, than to buy characters without an expansion.

I know I can get more characters by buying a box of other stuff...I was just surprised they hadn't broken it up a little. I'd rather spend $10 on 5-6 new characters than $30 on a big box expansion (or more appropriately I'd rather have the additional option to have more characters separate from buying a big box). But that's just me...the thing that surprises me is that there are no character expansions.

I think the additional characters are the main draw for the big box expansions. That's why I'm not surprised that they don't have separate expansions for them. It's also why I don't expect them to issue character only expansion.

Yeah, it's the same with Arkham Horror. Or Descent.

I created a system for creating your own custom characters. You could use any fantasy themed mini with them or use one of the many provided as a proxy!

You'll find the rules in the files section.

I'd love feedback too!!!
