The Stranger v1.2 Teaser (Coming Wednesday 17th February PST)
« on: February 09, 2016, 10:09:41 AM »


Hey Armellians!

The next update "The Stranger" has been announced!

But remember: v1.2 is not yet live, it will be here on the 17th of February (PST). Here are the list of features that will appear in this update, details will be added as we approach the release.

New House Rules
In this update, a bunch of new House Rules have been added to ensure you can take control of your own game and play Armello in new, interesting ways. A few of these were even inspired by community suggestion!

King Dawn Damage
By turning The King’s standard dawn damage off, The King will continue to rule Armello until the heroes intervene.
The Mad King
Each night, The King ensures there are at least 4 perils on the board.
Starting Hand Type
There are three options here, Default; an even distribution of Item, Spell and Trickery cards, Random; start with completely random cards and Draw; Choose which decks to draw your starting hand from on your first turn.
Hero Wits
Heroes gain a passive bonus to Wits
Hero Starting Equipment
Each hero starts with either a random Treasure or a random Follower

New Cards
This new batch of cards focuses on forethought and strategy. Block an opponent's path by placing a strategic Rotten Fog or stop them by force by standing in their path, armed with a Tower Shield. Avoid confrontation by forcing an opponent into an Armistice and steal a King's declaration with a Bubble Tea.

Tower Shield (Item) - 3 Gold
In Battle, +1 Shield, and when Defending gain another +1 Shield.
Bubble Tea (Item) - 1 Gold
(Play on) Hero, +1 Prestige until the end of target's next Turn.
Rotten Fog (Spell) - 2 Magic
(Play on Empty Tile) Plains, Forest, Dungeon; Creates a toxic -1 Health Fog on the Tile until next Dawn
Armistice (Trickery) - 2 Gold
(Play on) Hero (Not Self); If either Hero attacks the other, they'll be given a Bounty

The wife and I are super excited by this. We can't wait to see what the stranger is going to bring. Maybe a new tile piece? Maybe s/he sits at a shop somewhere in Armello and will not only sell stuff to the players, but maybe even buy cards off of them?

Or maybe It's a whole new hero with a unique power who isn't tied to the existing clans.

Excitement abounds!

I think it would be very neat if "The Stranger" was someone who came to the land of Armello and either became the Puppet Master for the dying King, working his way into power. Or, once the King has perished to corruption, he has taken the Throne and is threatening the land with the ultimate darkness. Therefore the Clans must unite to try and overthrow this new danger. Maybe even the introduction of the Bandit clan to the non-backers

That's coming with the tablet version of Armello, and will be a separate purchase.

The Stranger has a symbol on the main site that reminds me of a baby wallaby.  Well, a hybrid of sorts.  Kinda rodent-ish. Maybe a jerboa?

Also given the '"." in 1.2 is a crazed/skiddish eye, and the Stranger symbol has a messed up eye, perhaps the Stranger is some crazed rodent.

Yo! Just to clarify, the patch will not land on the 10th of February (Today). That date was placeholder in the text field and we removed it from our website shortly after.

Regardless, the wait shouldn't be long! Hold tight for a date!

I have this... clingy sense of foreboding. It's been following me around all day. I thought it was just my fickle tastes misleading me, but now I know why... :D

So basicly this update occurs 6 months after launch. Does it mean that a tablet version comes along with it?

I believe they've said that the tablet version has been delayed.  :'(
