Umm, what's my way?  Or was the "read the books out of game" tier higher than Bandit?

Is there going to be an out of game way to read the Novellas?

Anything with more Armello Art is awesome.  Unfortunately, it's also super EXPENSIVE, like 1000$ a second from when the Dev's last mentioned such details.  The cut-scenes we got for the launch and DLC trailers are covered by a special Australian government grant that can only be used on "Marketing materials" i.e. those cut-scenes.  Paying their animation contractors thousands of dollars for a rarely seen feature isn't going to be sound financially. 

Getting awesome cut-scenes for victory states has been a long request, but even though a victory happens every game, it still would cost more than makes sense.

Wouldn't it be spelled Horlet?
Also, I think MerCosha feels better to say.

So poison dagger and Poison vile are even more useless by being unable to combine with piercing effects.

Realizing this is an old thread, but I wanted to talk about the Channel.

1st: since this thread ended LoG apparently reopen their archives to everyone, which is nice for people who were concerned about the main topic.

2nd: The Twitch notifications are very unclassy.  "Live and Nude"?  Why are you trying to look like Porn spam in my Inbox?  You are very lucky my wife already knew what you were!

The low floor and high ceiling may balance her over a period of many games, but it doesn't stop the high frustration players will feel being a "poor" Griotte or fighting a "rich" one.  Normalizing the floor and ceiling would retain the overall balance while generally appearing more favorable to the community I think (Less, she is OP, she is UP arguments).

If the extreme swinginess is intended and non-negotiable from the designers though, we'll have to agree to disagree and I'll have to hope my feedback could be incorporated on the other characters.

This was inspired by a feedback thread on Steam about Griotte, but it expands larger than that. 

Griotte's power is a drawback unless you can afford 1 trickery during the day phase (last I checked night trickery gets no credit), and it takes 2 trickery to actually make it different from being "powerless".  Like Zosha she's Powerless during the day as well.  Conceivably, a Griotte with uncontested control of 3+ towns and drawing the correct Trickery's could boost herself to Brun levels of dice madness for a whole turn instead of a single fight and win Perils too.  In short, Unlucky folks get shafted with her power while lucky folks will get dominating force.  This is frustrating to me.

Lets consider some other hero powers of similar frustration. 

Ghor's original power had no downside (even a single forest gave you super spell reach- arguable the glowing forest effect was intended as a downside), and no cap.  Find a big forest and your whole hand is free.  New power now has a downside (no stealth) and a hypothetical cap as the forest threshold increased but it's still a big problem that even a 2 point discount is usually enough to empty a hand with mana to spare.

Scarlet's power has great potential (you could get full/the best followers) from it, but it is also too easy to go the whole game with it never occurring. 

Sylas's Old power was extremely difficult to get started (low floor), but would have been devasting if allowed to get to max of 5.  The new power is far easier to activate and pleasantly limited.

What I'm getting at is that it is important to consider the "edge cases" of any element in the system.  I think Griotte and Hargrave's downsides (floor) is a bit too severe and that Griotte's Ceiling is too high.  I'm hoping they can get a Sylas style adjustment and not a Ghor style one.

In game terms.  Gaining a Rot every night is the King's Hero Power.

Wouldn't it be a hatchling?

Funny, Fang used to be 5 Overkill and it was lowered for being too rare to attain.  Maybe 4 is the sweet spot?

He's really single.  He's the only one of his species in Armello since he's from far away.  A family would make the prestige leader succession more contested.

That's an interesting take, because it seems the community at large has written off the poison effect as nigh impossible to land an certainly I wouldn't fear attacking someone with poison gear unless I had no armor.  Even if struck in most cases it wouldn't outdamage a piercing die depending on life remaining and available healing.  I maintain that the lack of the special dice priority is the worst decision your team has made.

I used to like the Bane blade but the rise of shield and pierce gear has made it's luster dull.  When armor was scarce, you usually killed your opponents with it, now even GUARDS can survive the battles and you end up dying even if your own gear makes you unscratchable.  It's not much stronger mathematically than the Bastard sword.
