FFG: New Releases – GoT, LotR, Eldrich Horror & More
Fantasy Flight Games has quite a few new releases in stores this weekend. Get ready to save the world!
The world of Westeros has been defined and shaped by religion. For much of the south, the faith of the Seven is professed—but in the north, the Old Gods still hold sway. The ironborn worship the Drowned God, and the fires of R’hllor are spreading from Essos across the Narrow Sea. Whether held devoutly or used as a pretense for power, these religions have a profound effect on the game of thrones and those who play it.
In Favor of the Old Gods, you’ll find the continuation of the Flight of Crows cycle for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game—drawing players deeper into the events of A Feast for Crows with cards that feature the bestow keyword or reward you for forging alliances between factions. This pack also features an assortment of cards with traits such as Old Gods, The Seven, or R’hllor, hearkening to the many religions that have played their roles in the tumultuous game of thrones. From a new agenda evoking the mystical powers of the greenseers to characters like Selyse Baratheon and Ser Balon Swann, this Chapter Pack has plenty to offer for every faction.
Eldritch Horror: Masks of Nyarlathotep is an expansion for Eldritch Horror, a cooperative boardgame for one to eight players where intrepid investigators must traverse the globe in an attempt to thwart the cataclysmic rise of an otherworldly Ancient One. Strange cults are gathering strength in remote corners and bustling cities all over the world. Though they seem to worship different gods, the investigators have found a thread that runs throughout all of the cultists’ horrific rites.
In Masks of Nyarlathotep, each of these sects pursues the awakening of an aspect of the same horrific creature: Nyarlathotep. This being is known as the Messenger of the Outer Gods, and he is the only Ancient One that still actively walks among humanity. The investigators must work to stop the that cults spring up to serve his many guises, or Nyarlathotep will gain enough strength to open the Ultimate Gate, ushering in an unthinkable doom. Strike down these cults in new Adventures, explore ancient mysteries among new Mystic Ruins, and destroy the monstrous followers of Nyarlathotep. New to this expansion, Personal Stories unique to each character add stakes to the actions undertaken by each investigator, and a Campaign mode adds a fresh challenge and enriches the narrative of the investigators’ struggles to stop the many cults worshipping the multitude of faces worn by one dread being in Eldritch Horror: Masks of Nyarlathotep!Advertisement
Attack on Dol Guldur originally premiered at Gen Con 50 and was later featured as a favorite at the 2017 Fellowship Event. This scenario is designed to embrace Fellowships of every size, whether you wish to campaign with a small band of elite fighters or strike with the force of a great host. This scenario pack features two forms of gameplay with both Standard Game Mode and Epic Multiplayer Mode. Standard Game Mode supports one to four players and can be played with a single copy of Attack on Dol Guldur. Otherwise, with three copies of the scenario pack, you can support an incredible three to twelve player game and launch an assault on the fortress from multiple fronts.
