Fantasy Flight Previews King of Ashes Expansion for Cadwallon

Posted: September 19, 2012 in Uncategorized

King of Ashes is the new expansion for Cadwallon: City of Thieves.  Fantasy Flight Games previews this expansion at their website.

The guild intrigues of Cadwallon: City of Thieves grow even richer with the treasure trove of new adventures, characters, equipment, and Arcana in The King of Ashes expansion!

In our last preview, we looked at the ways the rules had changed for the thieves lurking in the streets of Cadwallon. This time around, we’ll introduce some new faces, and get reacquainted with some old friends and enemies alike. With the lure of the legendary treasure room of Sophet Drahas to be found in the Catacombs (which we’ll explore in-depth in a future preview), new mercenaries flock to the city of Cadwallon to try their luck at making off with the riches below the streets!

New Mercenary Characters

Each gang has a brand new mercenary character that can be swapped out for one of the gang members from the standard game. Here’s a rundown of the new recruits:

The Executioners have found Chufflock, a tall, black-cloaked figure wielding a giant axe. If Chufflock defeats another thief in battle, fleeing is not an option for his unfortunate opponent. The loser is sent immediately to the Prison deep in the darkness of the Catacombs.

The mysterious Lucius comes to the aid of the Nocturnis Gang. Lucius’ high collar, wide-brimmed hat, and glasses almost entirely obscure the man’s face, but one thing about him is immediately apparent: Lucius is armed to the teeth. The thief’s entire body is bristling with weaponry, and Lucius can start the game with any one piece of equipment he chooses.

Kaldern’s Gang has managed to secure the services of the illustrious ambassador Iraem. A smooth talker with powerful connections, if the brilliant Iraem should ever find himself in trouble with the law, he can easily walk out of the Prison of the Catacombs at no cost any time he likes!

Check out one of the cards below – see the rest of them, along with the rest of the preview, at the FFG website.
