I like the Hybrid monster.


However the Punisher cards and the handbow leave me utterly indifferent.

The powder seems to have potential and the boots seems good.

Fire Imps are nice as well, although without implementing some house rules and owning the conversion kit I've already a bunch of monster which I do not see played.

The punisher cards are not bad, unfortunately Warlord remains vastly superior, thus making the OL class system a little dull.

I am eagering for the new quest/rumor though

The Handbow seems neat, although I'm not sure how much use it would get, especially in Act II. It could be good to give to a Berserker or a Knight, so he could still equip his full complement of normal weapons, but also have access to a ranged attack when he needs it.

The level 3 Punisher card seems pretty good to me! Even if Warlord is the strongest deck among the (soon-to-be) four possible decks, I'd still want to try out Punisher to see how it goes.

They still haven't explained the Burning Condition yet! I guess we just need to wait until it comes out.

No Rest for the Wicked seems like it could really save Splig's hide in the first encounter of The Man Who Would Be King.

Or Belthir in Death on the Wing Encounter 2. Basically, it would be great in any group that has learned that fatigue-move + double attack is often more useful than move action + single attack.

And will there be a Preparation H(tm) potion in the Search deck to remove it? Told you not to get the microwave burrito with hot sauce.

The handbow gives you a ranged attack without using a hand slot or having to re-equip, and variety can be it's own reward. It could also give offensive capability to a dual-shielded tank. Worst case, if you pull it from a chest, you can get some gold for it.

And quite a bit, at that. Selling something to the shop for 75 gold is not too shabby.
