We hit the alternative bust for the Criminal!
Over this past weekend you really outdid yourselves both here and around the internet! After unlocking the upgraded tray Stretch Goal you managed to reach more than 500 shares on the Facebook post and so you unlocked the Alternative bust for the Criminal. You all deserve a round of applause! 👏🏻
Now you will be able to play with the Criminal both in full armor and without the top. Remember, there are also special variant rules that come with this change!
Chain System: how does it work?
Lots of you were wondering about the Chain System, the mechanism that allows you to play in sequence Mysthea, Icaion, and Mysthea: The Fall.
This system allows you to have a different setup for The Fall that can be influenced by either one or both games! Here's how it works:
Mysthea ➡️ Mysthea: The Fall
If you play Mysthea before The Fall, play the game regularly until the end.
Now in order to play Mysthea: The Fall with the Chain System, before you clear Mysthea table, you need to take with you the decks you built during the game. These decks will be used to handle the attack mechanic towards enemies and monsters.
Icaion ➡️ Mysthea: The Fall
If you play Icaion before The Fall, play the game regularly until the end.
Now in order to play Mysthea: The Fall, you need to keep the map as it is with the exact same machines layout. Then, depending on the number of players, you need to take the spare miniatures you did not use of non-playing colors and scatter them randomly along the map. Some regions may remain empty. You will also carry the Wonders in order for them to provide bonuses and to increase the defense of the regions.
Lastly if you use the Chain System, players take with them the characters they used during the previous games.
Let's hit another SSG together!
Next we have the Lore of Mysthea: The Fall, do we have lore lovers among us? Come on, 800 subscribers on BGG and we are ready to hit that one too!
Lastly, regarding all your game mechanics related questions we submitted them to our game designers. We will be back at you as soon as we hear from them. We also sent to Travis all the questions reserved for the lead artist and we will share the answers with you in the near future.
Details about Volfyirion Expansion in Mysthea and Mysthea: The Fall and more!
almost 1 year ago
– Sun, Jun 02, 2019 at 02:48:58 AM
It is Volfyirion's turn to be on the spot today! As you might already know, the Dragon Miniature comes with cards, shards and special rules to use it as an expansion on both Mysthea and Mysthea: The Fall. We have decided to explain these variants a bit in detail for everyone that doesn't know about them.
The dragon in Mysthea
Picture this, the Volarees Guild decided to deploy Volfyirion alongside their Champion on the journey to the Five sacred Islands, but the wild energies erupting from the Henakor unshackled Volfyirion from the Guild’s control.
The fearsome creature is now on a rampage, threatening the success of all other Guilds’ expeditions too. The Guilds are now forced to join forces and cooperate in order to defeat the dreadful and fearful dragon.
The Dragon Miniature is placed in the center of the map: this new rule will prevent the Islands from moving and will drastically change the game mechanics!
During the dragon’s attack toward the island it's facing, all players are called upon to defense. It is up to each player to stand up to their nemesis or call a retreat and abandon the opponents to their fate!
If Volfyirion is not defeated, it will destroy everything on the unfortunate Island.
The dragon in Mysthea: The Fall!
Wondering also how is it going to work in Mysthea The Fall? You have been served!
After The Fall, the balances of Icaion broke irreparably. Ancient forces unleashed from the crystals, wild energies that channeled through the Henakor and started to resonate everywhere. Summoned by these ancestral energies, Volfyirion flew to the Henakorblinded by this immense power.
The dreadful beast is making its growl heard in the depths of Icaion, calling every kind of creature toward the City and the crystal it surrounds.
Volfyirion miniature will be placed in the center of the map. In fact, Volfyirion will replace the Colossus in this scenario, so you will need to keep the Colossus, its shards and its cards inside the box.
The final goal is to defeat the creatures that are destroying the City and obtain all Volfyirion's shards.
Beware, in case you fail in the mission of defending the City, you will be dead meat and annihilated by the mighty beast!
Another cool SG: The tray!
Thanks to your support we managed to unlock a pretty cool Stretch Goal. We know you were eager about this and we couldn't be more happy to give it to you! Thanks to this upgrade the tray will have visual details and markings, as well as icons to highlight each slot making it feel as premium as the rest of the components. What do you think about it?
Here are the wallpapers!
On a last note, we can finally share with all of you the mobile and desktop wallpapers! Now you will get the chance to take the art behind Icaion wherever you go! They can be downloaded here and you certainly deserved it, so enjoy! :D
Soon we will unveil details about the Chain System, so stay tuned!
