We're approaching the end of our journey (or is it just the beginning). And so, to help us ride into the sunset in style, we have one more Optional Buy to offer. Get your motor running for the Sons of Ragnarök!
The Sons of Ragnarök are a notorious outlaw biker gang, that could very nearly have become Acolytes of Sin themselves. However, their total rejection for following orders made any approach to try and conscript them to aid the sins result in a very dead servant of sin. This biker gang is obsessed with Viking mythology, with members assuming nicknames in reference to the Norse Gods. The realization that the Apocalypse (or Ragnarök, as they prefer to call it) was upon them stirred the gang into a battle frenzy! However, their contempt for authority also means they would never agree to join FAITH. Though that doesn't stop them from carrying on the fight against the Others on their own terms!
The Sons of Ragnarök Optional Buy box contains a full team of 7 heroes, including a Leader, 2 Fixers, 2 Snipers, and 2 Bruisers. These rebels tend to operate outside of FAITH, but they can be mixed and matched with any FAITH team as your group may choose. This team follows the same rules as any FAITH group, though they were designed with special synergy among themselves.
Kickstarter backers can get this box by adding $25 to their pledge. It will also be available at retail eventually for an estimated MSRP of $30.
So let's get to know better this band of misfits!
Father Odin - Leader
Father Odin is a natural-born leader. The fact that he can command the loyalty of such a rowdy gang speaks for itself. The blood he gives in battle pushes the whole gang to fight even harder for their leader. The more wounded Odin gets, the more extra dice all the heroes roll!
Loki - Fixer
An ex-FAITH agent, Loki is a very slippery character. He'll fight when it's advantageous, but has no qualms about retreating to lick his wounds when things go south. Any time he is wounded (but not killed), you may immediately swap Loki with another hero from the reserve, healing all of Loki's wounds and other conditions!
Fenris - Sniper
A fierce marksman, Fenris is loyal to a fault to his father and his gang of bikers. He specializes in escort missions, putting himself in harm's way to allow his comrades to move in safety. While he is wounded, he may take one hero with him when he moves, keeping them safe from the ill effects of leaving or entering harmful spaces.
Thor - Bruiser
Thor is without a doubt one of the most fearsome warriors around. He seems to believe he is the god of thunder himself, and few would be inclined to disagree when they see him in action. When he is wounded in a fight, he goes into a murderous blood rage. In these occasions, he may take corruption to automatically destroy an Acolyte or Abomination in his space after the fight is over.
Freya - Sniper
Most ladies would have a hard time hanging out with such a gang of brutes, but Freya fits right in, never a step behind her fellow Sons of Ragnarök. An uncanny sniper, with great defensive training, she's always ready to protect her 'brothers', willing even to sacrifice herself for them. During her turn, you may transfer wounds between Freya and another hero in her space.
Tyr - Bruiser
Always in competition with Thor to see who amasses the highest kill count in battle, Tyr will use anything at his disposal to make sure his enemies are put down for good. Before rolling for a fight, he may discard an Upgrade to gain an automatic Hit, gaining a new Upgrade at the end of the turn.
Heimdall - Fixer
The scout of the team, always looking out for the safety of others, Heimdall is an expert in solving crises. But beyond that, he seems to have a 6th sense about crises that haven't even occurred yet! At the start of his turn, he may take a wound to look at the next Apocalypse cards, or at a couple of Sins cards in the Sins player hand. Knowing what's to come can be key to victory!
