Capital strongholds seem really weak. If you need 7-strength in your home realm, you're not usually doing too hot. I'd rather build a forward stronghold.

Excited about Eagle-Eyed Archers!!

The big drawback to Eagle-Eyed Archers is that it only works in approximately 1/3rd of the map squares (9 out of 28 general hexes, 2 out of 3 Elven home realms, and 1/3 out of 3 of any other home realms). The minor drawback is that you can get unlucky with it, since 12 out of the 18 cards that would have been hits for you turn into misses (obviously this is more than counterbalanced in principle by the 12 cards it'll turn from misses into hits, but actual play might result in you getting stung).

Frenzy is more of a straight upgrade, and looks very powerful.

As for capital strongholds, I think the main benefit is that they make the "build 3 developments" objective card much less painful in terms of actions, while also giving you insurance against having your valuable developments stolen.

Also about capitals, if you replaces the regular stronghold with its token, supposedly you would be able to build an additional stronghold, so it is another reason to build it.

Well, I will be preordering this.. just like I did with Runewars itself before I even played it. Call me crazy, but more Runewars goodness is too hard to resist.

*these sure make Harvest orders more valuable. I can't wait to try it out!

Personally I really like the faction wide cards, the peasant one is especially great.
