First, some good news. We've already secured French and Spanish distribution at Gencon for Wrath of Kings! Europe is the spiritual home of Arikania, where many of the artists and sculptors hail from, and this is very good news indeed for the future of Wrath.
On to the main event....
The eagerly awaited optional menu is now available! To add any of these items, just increase your pledge by the appropriate amount and we'll find out what you want after the Kickstarter ends (via our pledge manager).
P.S. For King and Ancient King, multiple choices of a single Faction are ok.
Goritsi Blood Engine
Whereas vampires and werewolves are human hosts Gifted by Telloria’s inherent darkness, the vile Blood Engines are avatars of pure evil summoned by heinous rites. Augmented by steam-powered blood pumps which further amplify their strength and resilience (whence they receive their name), Blood Engines require large supplies of fresh stock to keep themselves corporeal in the mortal realm. On the battlefield their beastly presence and voracious hunger give pause to all but the hardest veterans. In combat, a killing streak only stokes their furnaces as they rage from foe to foe, consuming, drinking, and hungering.
An evolution of the Arkazan Longhorns, the Greathorns’ war masks are similarly bonded with their flesh, and their bodies transformed into powerful weapons. Greathorns excel where stealth is not a priority, especially in strategies revolving around area denial: charred corpses, burning terrain, and smoldering footprints mark an enraged Greathorn’s passing. In battle the Greathorn’s human host is sometimes sorely tested to rein in its captive elemental’s powerful instincts to burn, smash, and kill. However, they are not mere berserkers and can still distinguish friend from foe even at the height of fury. Wise commanders simply point Greathorns at their enemies and let them loose.
Careful application of magic and captive spirits allow these terrors of the deep to stalk the land. Many Hadrossian scholars consider kulons the most intelligent among the many varieties of kraken kept as beasts of burden. As such they are remarkably quick to learn, and similarly quick to take offense, though, once trained, kulon demonstrate almost childlike loyalty to their cavalier masters. While they can boast to no great speed ashore, Kulon Cavaliers make up in reach what they lack in velocity. Enemies venturing too close find themselves ensnared by tentacles and dragged towards the kulon’s gaping maw to be consumed, crushed, or speared.
Shael Han Fulung Devourer
Although the vast dragons of legend are long gone, the Fulung Devourers share many of their traits, being amongst the most intelligent and versatile of their species. But, like the most spirited horses and proudest raptors, dragons require patient handling and constant diligence under a steady temperament. It is no wonder that Achrion alone boasts the only contingents of dragon cavalry. On the battlefield the Devourer can fill many roles, as exemplifying Achrion’s philosophy of flexibility over specialization. They can strike enemies at range with breath of searing light, cover an advance under a misty, mystical cloud, or break enemy formations outright through sheer strength and ferocity.
Combat Augmenting Galvanic Engines (CAGEs) represent the current pinnacle of technomantic engineering. Within the armor, a single operator becomes a platoon unto himself, boasting greatly enhanced strength and resilience. They’re especially proof against magical assaults of any kind. In ordinary sentry modes CAGEs clank along on steam and coal alone. In battle, power is drawn from a score of elemental batteries, which are easily replaced once the bound elemental’s life force is depleted. A CAGE may win no awards for agility, but in striking power they are unmatched. A solid blow will cleave through the thickest armor known to magic or science as enemies flail ineffectively to strike at the operator within.
