Welcome back, everyone!
Whether you’re an old-school Heroscape fan or you’re interested in what all the fuss is about, we hope you’ve been thrilled by the sketches and concepts we’ve shared so far. The Avalon Hill team has been working hard to make the return of Heroscape something special, something that doesn’t just replicate what was great about the game before but also adds to it.
We’ve already shared two factions we’ll be introducing in Age of Annihilation, and this week we’ll take a look at a third. But before we do, we also want to share an exciting announcement. We’re going to have a panel at Hasbro Pulse Con 2022 that will focus on Heroscape as our next HasLab crowdfunding project! That’s right, on October 1st you’ll finally get all the details on what will be included in the Age of Annihilation set and how you can back it. So mark your calendars, as we’re just a few weeks away.
Until then, let’s continue with our preview – again noting days 12 and 13 were the weekend. Take it away, Chris!
DESIGNER'S NOTES - "DRYAN LIFEBORNE ORDER" FACTION LORE - Mystical weavers of the raw magical energies of life and death. The Dryan Lifeborne Order has dwelt in the dark forests of planet Arboreas for countless ages, attuning their powers with the spirits of nature and the etheric beasts that also call these ancient and forbidden places of the wild home. Masters of the arcane, these spell weaving magi learned to harness the very life force contained in the anima of living creatures, even using the fallen and deceased to increase the strength of their spellcasting or calling upon the powers of the earthly elements to create destructive manifestations of raw carnage. Though few in number, the order's magi make up for this by enlisting the aid of the world’s many creatures and beasts, bolstering the ranks of their armies with the unbridled fury of their animal kin, and unleashing the very definition of feral rage upon their enemies.
