These cards are amazing! I haven't been on since the first 10 or so we're revealed! This is goingto be an awesome set! Too bad I won't have much til Nats...lol! Anyway, is there a thread that explains the star cards??

I'm sure it is somewhere, but I don't know where, so I'll do my best to explain it.

During your opening draw 8, and each turn on your draw 3.  Play your lost souls like normal, and draw to replace them.  Before you play any cards you can choose to "activate" (probably wrong word) any and every star ability in your hand.

During the opening hand, whoever has the most lost souls or wins the tiebreaker gets to play their star abilities then the opponent gets to, and then you continue as normal.

If you draw one by a special ability you do not get to activate the star ability.

I'm sure there is more to it than that, but that is the basics.

This helps thanks! I like the idea of only being able to use the stars on your normal draw. It would be chaotic if you got to use them every time you drew a card.

One point of clarification, you can only use * abilities on cards that you drew that turn. You cannot draw a * card one turn, and then use it on your next turn during your draw phase.

The best practice may end up being to set your current hand down during your draw phase so the opponent knows you are using * cards drawn that turn.

I knew I was missing something!  That is a huge clarification I left out!

We have been "Without Prophecies" for a long time! It's well worth the wait! Glad to hear it's being shipped.  :D

We're deep into PoC phase 2 now. Maybe this is a good time to update you on how the card originally previewed as "400 Years of Silence" has evolved. It's actually turned into cards! These are still being tested and could change further.

Not according to the REG entry for "Look" or "Search".

How long have we known that we were making PoC? Here's a card we cut from CoW to save for this set.

Hmm. It's certainly interesting. I'd be a little more upset without the choose the _____ rule change. It's an intriguing card, lots of fun possibility this year. I honestly wanted her to be able to take a Bab king (or even Belshazzar specifically) from reserve. It would make stuff like Belshazzar and Nimrod maybe a little more playable.

That said, Nebbe being protected from opponents in territory is a little annoying. No more sniping him with Asahel-Jehu combos.

So with Bel's Mom can I choose any human prophet or is the default a good human prophet to attack? I base this on "human prophet" and "attack" rather than "rescue attempt". Just wondering...

Godspeed,
Mike

Based on its ability probably a curse; artifacts are usually more tangible items.

I agree; LP doesn't really strike me as an Artifact. A curse I could see. Maybe brown/gray to fit with the false prophet theme?
Absentmindedly glancing at this unimpressive signature fills you with determination.

Every battle defines the alignment of its sides when it begins. You can only bring characters that match the alignment into a side of the battle.

"Attack" vs. "rescue attempt" is mainly to avoid arguments about valid selections when the new character is not rescuing, for whatever reason.

Looking at the Pagan Sailors preview, isn't "or Curse" in "activate an Artifact or Curse" redundant since Curses can be targeted as artifacts at face value?

Yea, I think so. To make it keep with the curse theme and maybe add interesting strategies, maybe you could somehow make it be able to play a curse from artifact pile as an enhancement. I'm not sure how that would fit in with the rules, but it would be pretty cool.
