Secrets Are Worth More Than Silver Or Sapphires

Valar Dohaeris, bannermen!

We've reached $1,130k and unlocked Maester Pycelle for all backers. The Lannisters should benefit greatly from his counsel.

By unlocking Maester Pycelle, you have fully unlocked the Lannister Heroes I box! All backers will receive, as part of their Hand of the King pledge, these five Lannister Characters in this box, which has an Estimated Retail Price of $35.

 

We have truly been inspired by the latest Optional Buy:

Lord Varys Knows All

We've recently unlocked wise counsellors loyal to the Starks and the Lannisters. Now it's time for a counsellor whose loyalties are a constant mystery. Enter the spider!

If we reach $1,165k all backers will get Varys "The Spider", including his miniature and Mercenaries NCU card.

"A eunuch has no honor, and a spider does not enjoy the luxury of scruples, my lord."

GAMEPLAY

Varys has spies everywhere. He always seems to know what is happening, or about to happen, much to the dismay of his foes. With Varys' NCU power you will always be one step ahead of your opponent, either knowing what their upcoming tactics will be or straight out delaying them.

With his ability, it is important to remember that there are only two copies of any given card in the Tactics Deck, moving one to the very bottom can remove some very meddlesome problem for you. Worse yet, your opponent will never know what you moved around, so if they are relying on a certain combination and/or card they might find themselves out of luck.

Varys' power is subtle, but incredibly powerful. A keen commander can use it to great effect, all the while appearing to have done little at all!

Why is it always the innocents who suffer most, when you high lords play your game of thrones?

      @Brian Of course it will, but if I have all but 1 character from the box I'll still have to pay $35 for that character and 4 duplicates I already got during the kickstarter.

      @Tim Maher I agree but one way or another the full Stark hero pack will show up. May not be in the kickstarter but I'm sure they'll pop up when the game is released next year. Money is money... I'm sure CMON knows that better then anyone haha

      Gonna be kinda annoyed if we end up with the whole Lannister Heroes box but only part of the Stark Heroes box. Seems like Varys and whoever is the next Stark NCU is should have had their order swapped. I figured it would be Pycelle > Stark NCU > Mercenary NCU > more combat units.

      The Varys miniature is fantastic. Does anyone know what rendering software they are using?

      The rule fits very nicely, but I wonder what else he could have after all he is a very powerful character. With all his spies he should be much more powerful than other NCUs

      Just to clarify is that Sandor Clegane also included in the Lannister Heroes box?

      Cool box but can't help be a little disappointed that this makes unit SG seem farther out of reach. Questio for those with more KS experience, do numbers tend to pick up during last 48hrs?

      Starks - Maybe Maester Luwin? Hodor? Lol

      Mercs - Brienne?

      Nice. I hope you have some room there for Jon Snow and Bronn

      I guess this means that there is one more Stark character from Stark Box 1 and two more Merc characters (including Varys) from Merc Box 1 to unlock in the SGs
