Fantasy Flight Games had a busy week of previews and products – come take a look at what’s out now in stores plus some new fiction to get your head into their games.
There is a ton of new fiction out there for fans of Android, KeyForge, and Legend of the Five Rings. Plus a few bits of news for A Game of Thrones: LCG fans. First up, the new release:
In Daznak’s Pit is the fifth Chapter Pack in the Dance of Shadows cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game. Featuring three copies each of twenty new cards, this pack draws you into the world of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series where the key players in the game of thrones struggle to hold onto power as those they lead conspire against them. In the city of Meereen, Queen Daenerys Targaryen must fight for the loyalty of her people as the Brazen Beasts plot her downfall. In King’s Landing, Cersei Lannister must contend with the Faith of the Seven, battling against the power she helped them gain. And at the Wall, Jon Snow assumes the role of Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, but as his brothers question his leadership, a sense of impending doom hangs in the frigid air.
With the reintroduction of the shadows mechanic from A Game of Thrones: The Card Game First Edition, your games become further steeped in mystery as the tension and uncertainty threatens to unhinge your mind. With dangers lurking around every corner, you must either give in to the darkness within your heart or fall before those who do. How much of yourself are you willing to lose in order to win the Iron Throne?

Looking for a Cyberpunk fix? Look no further than the upcoming “Undercity: A Javier Zamora Novella” by Richard Lee Byers. This 96 page novella is set in the exciting Android Universe.
Javier Zamora used to be a real journalist, with all the perks of working for NBN. Now, he vids scandalous, fringe, and downright disgusting content for a less mainstream corner of the Net. His stories draw an audience, at least enough of one to fund his life in the undercity. Or they used to, anyway.
When Zamora stumbles on evidence of a serial killer stalking the undercity, he thinks it might be his ticket back to journalistic respect— or at least a steady revenue stream. But as the investigation draws him into a sordid world of underground cage fights and blackmail scams, the notorious Los Scorpiones gang warns him to drop the story.
Faced with the choice between abandoning the story of his career or antagonizing a dangerous criminal cartel, Zamora must tread carefully if he wants to keep his creds, his life, and maybe even his integrity.
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to present Undercity: A Javier Zamora Novella by Richard Lee Byers! This page-turning adventure explores the dark center of the Android Universe, as Javier Zamora risks life-and-limb to find the perfect story!
