Just won my first lost legions scenario at the daring level and slow game speed...

When will there be the next expansion?

Christmas 2013 would be great ... This time please before and not after Christmas )))

There is already a video interview of wizkids personnel confirming new Mage knight characters in the new expansion on YouTube...

So what else except the new characters?

Really! Where did you see this video? I really hope there is more but wasn't sure if there was going to be as Vlaada feels it is a complete game now.

there are two more basic actions in the starting deck to 'customize' for a hero (march & threaten) of course that is room for just one more... no idea what the new challenges/scenarios/mechanic will be...

That's the current (first) expansion. I don't recall any mention of another one, though. Of course, I hope there is another expansion. I'd love to see more characters and cards and scenarios and map tiles and such. I definitely don't feel like MK needs to be considered "complete," by any means.

The statement above is correct.

I actually nearly didn't buy the first one because I feel I'm far away from playing anywhere near as much as the base game alone would allow me to without the game getting stale. Mage Knight is one of my favorite games, currently #2 in my top 10, but I don't think I'd buy a second expansion.

Your mention of Talisman only makes things worse in that regard

I've seen it mentioned that Wizkids were considering small expansions with just new characters in them. (Might have been in the Spiel 2012 interview.) I don't think every expansion needs to be as big as Lost Legion, drip feeding a few extras every now and then would be good too.

Before bringing out the next expansion whey should handle the things already on their list such as

- get the rulebook of the expansion online.
- include the expansion parts to their replacement system so one can get missing/damaged parts.
- give all the first edition owners an answer regarding how about a fix pack because of the different component color issues.

After that they can - for all I care - bring out expansion after expansion (if they don't result in such issues as described above)...

I actually don't want another expansion for this game.

At some point there will be so many rules for units, enemy tokens, new actions, tiles, it will become unwieldly to put the game down and come back to it after a few months.

I fear another expansion will bloat the game and hurt it overall. The only new content I'd like to see is scenarios (particularly solo ones). So I wouldn't complain if a scenario book was released (or online scenarios for free).

New scenarios would be high on my list too. The Volkare scenarios have really breathed new life into the game for me, certainly the feel of a cooperative Volkare scenario is completely different from a competitive conquest scenario.

While in the abstract I also like the idea of more new monsters, more new characters, more new tiles, more new everything, I think it's important that they do it well to avoid rules overload. The game's rules density is already high, to the point that small overlooked rules and edge cases crop up often, so adding more would just make it worse.

All that being said, I'm only 5 games into the expansion and not quite at 50 plays total, so I think I'm nowhere near 'played out' enough to demand a new expansion Right. Now.

Of course, you're free to avoid getting another expansion, if you prefer. The game's already a bit unwieldy to begin with, IMO, so I don't mind adding more onto it. And I like that expansions for the game can do so without adding more space... new units, spells, artifacts, map tiles, monsters, etc., just get added to their existing decks. And depending on what they do, you don't necessarily need any more rules. The new Adv. Actions and Spells and Artifacts in Lost Legion don't need any additional rules. Yes, the Units and Map Tiles and monsters add a few new things, but not too much.

Come on, you really think people on this forum can avoid buying an expansion for a game they love? I won't be able to help myself because I'm a masochist. It's like how I have this nagging feeling at the back of my brain that adding in Pegasus and Exodus don't really make BSG a better game, "but, the new characters are cool, executions are thematic, the CFB makes pilots more useful, treachery is kind of neat, goddamn this game is bloated."

Yeah, I hear you. The last two times I played BSG was base game only, and I kept thinking how perfect that game seems to be. But the kind of things added to BSG include a lot of extra stuff that is peripheral to the main game (and sometimes takes away from its brilliance, IMO). With MK, I think you can always add new cards, units, monsters, characters, etc., and the essence of the game is still the same.

I was in the video, and I'm not WK personnel. I thought it was made clear that new characters was just my thoughts and nothing official
