Forgotten knowledge...

Welcome to this new update all about spells. 

However this time, we’re not talking about a school but rather the most sought after and dangerous spells of the lodge, the ones only the Black Rose can bestow as gifts to mages who prove their loyalty and worth. 

Yes, we're talking about the Forgotten Spells.

The Forgotten Spells were created in ancient times when magic still had the upper hand over reason, when the mages - who would later become the founders of the Black Rose - enjoyed powers beyond all imagination, powers that modern-day mages can only dream of having... a dream that every now and then comes true.  

The founders of the Black Rose created these extremely powerful spells, or, as some say, an unknown entity donated them in order that they be used to protect the lodge. Whichever the case, what we do know is that the founding fathers realised the extreme power of these spells and decided they were too dangerous to fall into the hands of just anyone.  

So they entrusted them to the Black Rose, she that would decide who could use them. And so as not to succumb to temptation, they made sure they forgot them too, so that no-one would ever be able to reproduce them unless so desired by the Black Rose.

As you know, during a Black Rose War, a mage can enter their room and ask the Rose to give them superior knowledge to use one of the 10 forgotten spells. As you also know, the mage must sacrifice 4 of their spells to have the opportunity to draw 3 of the 10 forgotten spells and choose 1 to add to their hand. 

It’s up to you to choose the right card for the deck you’ve built during the game... let’s take a look at a few of these Forgotten Spells!  

Devastation” strikes a room by inflicting 2 wounds on all models inside and converting 3 instabilities, or else all mages within two rooms will lose 2 power points, while you earn 2 power points for each mage struck.

Bull-o” will allow you to evoke a powerful Minotaur, who will inflict one wound on all models in every room in which it moves, or else make 2 rooms next to the target room unstable, allowing you to take their token!

Eviscerate” on the other hand will inflict 5 wounds on a model, ignoring the protection spells, or else kill any model that has suffered at least one wound.

All these Forgotten Spells are truly excellent if you’ve decided to concentrate on the Transmutation or Destruction schools, or in general if you’re focusing on collecting trophies or room tokens.  

That’s all for this lesson, we’ll be back tomorrow with another update to reveal other Prohibited Spells that your mages will be dying to learn!

And now...

      Molise is a mountainous Italian region with a stretch of coastline on the Adriatic Sea. It encompasses part of the National Park of Abruzzo in the Apennines mountain range, with rich wildlife and trails. The regional capital, Campobasso, is known for its mountaintop Monforte Castle and Romanesque churches. To the north is the Pietrabbondante archaeological area with an ancient Samnite theater and temple.

      If we choose the language pack, do we receive a copy with everything translated: would we have the letters and rules in English and another language? Or would we only have the copy in the chosen language?

      "The evanescent land of Molise"... Molise doesn't exist. It's an illusion. :D

      So, now that Marco confirmed, Draco will come with its own scenario (probably Boss or so like Crono) - who else is really looking forward to play this?

      The Bull-O texts seem to have some sentence problems.

      "You cannot make unstable the throne room and the Black Rose room."
      Move the "unstable" to the end of the sentence.

      "Inflicts a wound to every model (inside in) the room." double up on ins remove the _in_ and you should be fine.

      "“Devastation” strikes a room by inflicting 2 wounds on all models inside and converting 3 instabilities, or else all mages within two rooms will lose 2 power points, while you earn 2 power points for each mage struck. "

      Doesn't it say to remove 3 power points from all mages, and earn 2 yourself.
      Or is there a change to the picture displayed than the text it should be?

      Both Bull-o & Illusionist look awesome!
      .
      Jayhad - with stretch goals hit we have Bella, Arianna, Circe, Baba Yaga, Rebecca & Tessa. That's a pretty good amount of women mages.
      .
      I agree it would have been nice to see some non-Caucasian female mages, but at least with Tessa & Bella we have a little bit of variety in the women's body types. They don't all look like 'Paolo Parente' girls.

      @Jayhad he has to be male or else it would be 4 females and 2 males for the basic schools.

      Honestly I'm not a fan of the hat but aside he is nice.

    9. Jayhad on

      It would be great if the illusionist were female (lots of males already) and a different race, maybe a female fairy or some elf-like glamour mage. The old Irish fae were beings of glamour (illusion) so would be a nice touch to have something like that here...
