We've sailing toward our next Stretch Goal, Captains, and hopefully soon Belle Rose will join the Crew!
As more and more faces and factions begin to enter the hunt for Davy Jones' Treasure, however, our latest group, the Iron Inquisition (Full faction rundown HERE), has summoned more of its Holy Crusaders to enter the fight!
This Hero Pack contains five all new Heroes to join the ranks of the Iron Inquision.
HEROES OF THE INQUISITION
Torquemada holds some of the most sacred artifacts in the Inquisition. His Basic Attack, Sword of Wrath, can be super-charged to deal enough damage to KO most any Hero outright- at a cost, of course.
Meanwhile, his Sacred Flame ability allows him to clear whole waves of enemies in a single stroke.
Rounding him off we have The Eternal Crusade, which fills the Inquisition's "retribution" theme by allowing a Hero to gain an additional activation should one of their comrades fall in battle.
Rosario brings the full technological might of the Inquisition to bare. Her Modified Blunderbuss deals extra damages on 6's, and has one of the longest ranges of any Basic Attack.
And what good sniper would be complete without the ability to Headshot? If given the time to properly align her shot up, Rosario can deal an impressive five damage to a Hero from an even more impressive five zones away!
Finally we have Rosario's Auto-Gun- and while it doesn't deal the most damage in the world, it is still very accurate and, more so, being a Reaction, is essentially a free attack on an enemy- what's not to love?
Saint Vinductus (of the core Inquisition Heroes) focused on buffering his allies attacks at the cost of damaging them, Vasco here takes a different route by being all about added mobility to his companions. This is shown via his Onward!!! skill, which allows Vasco and all his allies to better position themselves on the map. Few other Quartermasters in the game offer the mobility Vasco brings to the table.
Of course, Vasco is no push-over in combat. Sure, he's down an arm, but he's replaced it with a nifty Double Shot gun, which allows him to make two attacks on two different targets. While this has its pros and cons, when leveled up it allows two separate attacks at Range 2- use this fact to your advantage, Captains!
Vasco also cares about the Crew, and brings The Conquest to the table. When friendly Crew attack a zone and clear it of enemies (which, in Second Tide also means they advance into that zone!) Vasco can force them to activate again- more importantly, if he ha the Coin to spend, he can retain use of this skill, meaning that you can trigger it again-and again-and again really allowing a zone of Crew to rocket forth in the Inquisition's name!
El Verdugo is an executioner, meaning he executes things, usually with his execute attack.
Ok fine. First let's note that Verdugo has a passive ability, Aegis of Faith, which prevents him from getting Condition Tokens of any kind, as well as being Pushed by enemy effects- the guy is a juggernaut, and he doesn't like being messed with.
His Basic Attack is the no-frills Axe Sweep, which gains additional dice the more enemies in the zone- leveled up it also causes Bleed. Nothing glamorous, nothing insane, just a nice utility skill!
Now we come to the nastiness of Verdugo's kit: Execute (obviously you need something to use all that stock-piled Coin on!).With a single mighty swing of his axe Verdugo can completely annihilate an enemy Hero or Objective. Load him up and chop 'em down!
Diego has seen quite a bit of action in his day- so much that he's more weapon than man now- not that he's complaining.
His passive ability makes it so anytime this Swashbuckler Pushes an enemy Hero they suffer 1 damage- very nice since all his abilities do just that!
His Basic Attack is Handcannon, which is your typical 3 dice-3-to-Hit you see on Swashbucklers. One of the keys here, however, is once it's leveled up it gains a range of 2, meaning if you're directly next to a Hero you can hit for upwards of 4, Push them back for an additional 1, shoot them again, and push them for another 1 damage!
Combine this with his Hammertime attack and you can really lay down the hurt on a Hero! Diego is meant to take down other Heroes, its his job, and he loves his job!
But that's not all, Captains! To top today off we also have some other, albeit smaller, Optional Buys for you!
You like dice? Of course you like dice!
We've added Faction Dice Packs to the Optional Buy Menu!
