Fantasy Flight Games announces Threads of Fate, its first mythos pack expansion to Arkham Horror: The Card Game – The Forgotten Age. The Forgotten Age took players deep into the rainforests of southern Mexico to discover the remains of an Aztec city. During the investigation, players uncovered a priceless artifact and had to decide how to protect it. In Threads of Fate, those decisions continue to have consequences. It begins with a choice of three tasks that must be completed in a limited time. Threads of Fate include twenty-four additional Act card, broken into three different Act decks playing all at once and will vary depending on who was last in the possession of the relic. The Mythos Pack also includes several new player cards which will shape the rest of the campaign. Two of the cards previewed with the announcement are Arcane Research, which reduces the experience cost of the first spell card upgraded before the next scenario, and Shrewd Analysis, which allows the upgrade of a second copy of any Unidentified or Untranslated card at no experience cost. Threads of Fate is available for pre-order now. Available now is the latest data pack for the Android Universe. Council of the Crest, the third Data Pack in the Kitara Cycle for Android Netrunner, features three copies each of twenty new cards full of new tools for runners and corporations and a new NBN identity.
