We encourage everyone to test out the chapters in their playgroups with paper-decks each week!

NOTE: Ongoing abilities from chapters are protected from players, but if that ongoing abilities gives something else an ability, you can negate that card (example: Silver Heroes gain, "You may band to one of your prophets."

I don't think I'll be able to join in but this looks like great fun.  Looking forward to hearing how each of the ongoing abilities and deck building rules affect the games.
May you prosper greatly!

Glad to see some of the ideas floating in your head coming to fruition. Can't wait to see how this goes. Would it be possible to play games locally to count towards this or only on Lackey. It doesn't hurt to ask since none of our playgroup, including myself, are on Lackey.

I dont know why we couldn't do something to accommodate "in-person" events?
Let me work on a way that you could report that. You could definitely play "for-fun" games whenever, but pick a day each week for the "offical" game that week.

I am very excited about this!

Many apologies!
I knew I was going to be gone last week, but I thought I had someone to stand in for week one on lackey.

If you had physical games at your play group on week one, please message me the results.
If you played on Lackey, please message me the results as well.

I would love to hear any great stories for week 1
