Fantasy Flight Games is keeping the pressure up on the wallets of Living Card Game and RPG fans with a “flight” of new releases in March. Android Netrunner, Star Wars LCG, Warhammer 40K: Conquest and Lord of the Rings LCG are all getting fresh cards to expand players strategic deck building choices while new RPG resources are coming both for Dark Heresy 2nd Edition and Descent 2nd Edition. ACD Distribution has the scoop and you can read about it in more detail here.
Let’s take a look:
Breaker Bay continues and extends a Data Pack cycle exploring the “SanSan” region of the Android world. In particular, the University of the Californias at Breaker Bay and its students. The Data Pack offers new resources, programs and operations for both runners and the megacorps looking for new deck options.
Jump to Lightspeed finishes up a cycle of Force Packs exploring the famous Rogue Squadron from the Star Wars Universe. True to the old adage of saving the best for last, this Force Pack includes none other than Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon. Enterprising Rebel commanders and Imperial operatives will both find plenty of ammunition for galactic conflict and enhanced deck construction.
Descendants of Isha is the last War Pack in an extended cycle exploring Warlords and other leaders of various factions in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. This time the subject is Eldar, aka Space Elves. Long ago the entire race descended into the darkest hedonism, eventually splitting into the good Eldar and the super-bad Dark Eldar. Descendants of Isha offers up 2 new warlords, one to try to help lead each of these armies to deck domination.
A big box expansion, The Lost Realm offers a whopping 165 cards to help flesh out the regions relating to the wilds of the North. The expansion includes 2 new Dúnedain heroes along with a host of allies. The expansion also focuses on player cards that reward players for engaging enemies, along with 9 new encounter sets and 3 new scenarios.
In the Warhammer 40K universe, the Empire of Man has always been obsessed with rooting out corruption. Enemies Within (not affiliated with the Rush song) offers up new backgrounds, talents and roles to help the Ordo Herticus do the job right. New rules are included for Sister of Battle operatives as well as new and improved heretic-conflagrating weapons. Game Masters receive additional cult-related adventures and cult/plot generators.
There’s always more to do in Terrinoth! Heirs of Blood “descends” your quest to a whole new level with a sweeping completely new adventure, 32 new econouters and quest outcomes with drastic consequences as players defend the heir to Saradyn and face the infernal forces of the Overlord (who’s not really that bad of a guy, honest).
