FORCE OF WILL NEWS FOR WEEK OF JULY 7TH, 2017

HELLO WANDERERS!!!

Alex handled my weekly duties while I was away enjoying the wonders of Universal Studios. But I’m back and I’m here with everything I always bring. Let’s kick things off like always.

Q&A STREAM

  • Spoilers for Starter Decks start on the 18th.
  • Starters and Ancient Nights to be revealed congruently.
  • No plan for “Ascension” campaign for banned cards to get playable cards.
  • One starter deck ruler has “something we have never seen before”.
  • First Starter is Panda and it is Light.
  • Art for Casters changes as Character “levels up”.
  • New Rotation plan will be posted soon.
  • New Bootcamp for Echoes coming on Monday.
  • Starter deck rulers will get support thru out the whole Reiya cluster. Not just dependent on cards in starter deck.
  • Next Lore is return to Refarth.
  • No Attoractians in Reiya cluster.
  •  September promos have Jordan excited. Something the community asked for awhile ago. School Girl themed.
  • For some reason a lot of people seem to want School Girl promos of many FoW female characters.

ECHOES OF THE NEW WORLD LORE

On Monday, the first lore article for the Echoes of the New World was released. This time it featured an emotional story between Machina and Mariabella. As two fan favorite characters who usually always have a very emotional story behind them, Jordan loves the Father/Daughter story line for them. Mariabella’s Journal has remained one of the highest praised lore articles FoWCo has issued so this one is right where it needs to be.  I for one am glad this is where the lore started as I have always been a fan of both characters.

Give the full article a read here.

RULER LEAGUE PROMO CARDS

Last week, the new Ruler League promos for August were released. It looks like Alex may have missed this but I will let that slide. This time…

Starting off we have Rainbow Arrow which features a lovely trio of Red Riding Hood, Nylarthotep, and Melfee relaxing and watching a Fireworks show. The color in this card is absolutely beautiful. Definitely like this one.

Soul Debt is next, and features a very Japanese themed celebration. With Charlote, Faria and Lars wearing tradition Japanese robes as they celebrate some similar light show. The artwork here is nice but I prefer the art on Rainbow Arrow better.

Make sure that you get your games in and get your promos.

SITE NEWS

    • Jordan did not really elaborate. However, based on the discussion, it seems there is talk of when the rotation will take place this time. It will either be before the starter decks for Reiya are released or after but before Ancient Nights. More than likely it would before the starters are released as it would not make sense to do it afterwards.

      It is FoWCo so who knows.
