Hello all,

After reading through all of the overlord cards I've taken a liking to the 'Warlord' cards, but some of the others look really good too. Can the OL's out there make a few suggestions as to some builds. I tend to use monster's more than traps myself, but traps are handy too...

Thanks

I started out with the Saboteur cards, because Web Trap can be great if you have it in your hand at the beginning of an encounter, but I switched to Warlord. Blood Rage is a great 1 XP card, and knowing that I'm working toward Reinforcements is a good thing.

If I weren't going for Warlord cards, I'd still be going for Saboteur cards. I find the Magus deck to be the most underwhelming of the three.

At least I'm not the only one who thinks that... laugh

Maybe after I get what I want out of Warlord I'll grab Web Trap too... will just have to win more bonus 1 xp quest's devil

I'm surprised though that I have not found much in the way of topic's on this. I guess most overlords don't want to give away their strategies.

Truth be told, there really isn't much strategy involved. Reinforce is hands down the best Level 3 OL card in the game. As far as I am aware, getting Reinforce as quickly as possible followed by Web Trap is the way to go.

In another thread it was suggested that OL cards are purchased on a per-quest basis. I am a big fan of this idea. We've made it a house rule and had great success with it so far.

That's an awesome thread and a great idea. I'm in the middle of a campaign now and would hate to try and presaude them on the switch, but for future campaign's I think that is a must (or at least a must try)

Thanks.
