With the release of BL, it sure seemed to give the impression that other lore cards would be released (although subtle if one reads the rules). I would look forward to maybe some lesser powered cards, since there are enough high powered ones as is. With the Warrior basically having very little level based cards, it might be the one of the 4 lore masters that might need some more level based cards. Other than that, the other 3 have quite enough of level based cards as is.

I have to agree with diaper in that fact that lore cards should not affect the game so much as to be the killer spell (namely the 3 cleric spells that people loathe!). Sure tactics should play some part of the game play, but one already has random elements already in the game (i.e. drawing of the section cards plus dice rolling).

What might be nice as a spell card is some sort of card that is random - random in the sense if affects a specific race (human, dwarf,goblin, creature, etc.) and one won't know which it will affect until after casting it. And of course it would affect both sides units, if it is an area type spell. In other words, a spell that might help or hinder a person's side (guess you could call it maybe a hail mary type of spell if one was behind in points).

Since I find it humorous to see how a hill rumble only affects one side's units troops but not the friendly units on those same hills. Likewise, as I mentioned in an earlier thread today, how fireball always affects the unit but never the terrain it's in (namely forest!!)

Another item that might be nice to incorporate into scenarios is the ability to have additional units enter the game in later rounds. And even add the possibility of randomness of when they come into play perhaps (maybe due to the fact that these new units see that maybe their side is winning and wait and/or due to rolling of dice or maybe the scenario has a random secret objective that side has to obtain to get those new recruits - obviously endless other ideas as well). This item shouldn't be hard to do but hasn't been done in many scenarios.

looks like we're getting new lore cards!

Timing ?

It's been 8 months at least... that's obviously nowhere near enough time..
