Typo in Assistant to Dr West - says shullfe instead of shuffle for his Action.

I'm so excited for new cards.

I have to ask though, as I have never used a fan made expansion before, is there a way of printing them on to card so they mix with my normal collection. I know it's a stupid question but any help is appreciated.

I disagree. I think its a good question. At the moment, I don't know. I mean, I know there plenty of custom card printers out there but I've never dealt with one much less know of one that would even be remotely close to an FFG card.

 

Worse, if I did find out, not sure I'd be even allowed to say. Don't want it to seem like I'm teaming up with some printer to somehow profit off of these. At the moment, I'm mostly focused on getting at least the story set complete before origins. However, once the set is complete I'll be sure to do some research towards finding a good print option(s) for myself. Even if its via my home printer. 

 

Which, via a home printer. You can get pretty close with 2 layers of 100lb card stock. Once they're in a sleeve the shuffle difference is pretty minimal. You can tell, but within a deck of 20+ cards you'll rarely notice. 

 

Regardless though, I plan to (somehow) release the expansion in as many different formats as possible... by request to accommodate as many options as possible.

 

With that. Here is another!

Make Playing Cards website is good for this and profit settings can be set to 0.  This is what is used for Warhammer Conquest custom sets which are very nice.  Their shipping is reasonable and the cost works out to about the same as a Mythos Pack MSRP.

 

Would highly recommend, several types of cardboard are available including 300 gsm which is very close to what's actually used.  The finish can be anything from glossy to laminate.

Well hey... there ya go. Sounds perfect to me! Will looking into making sure the formatting works for that site then.

Of course, that deserves another preview (I'm quite proud of this one):

MOAR Spoilers. And good news. I'll have the whole story deck ready for Origins.

Bonus Spoiler for some non-story action:

Which, I'll admit. Having a bit of a hard time finding out who illustrated this.

I am not sure if I understand you right, Tom - but if you are looking for the illustrator for Charlie Kane, it should be Magali Villeneuve. She painted all the investigators in the Eldritch Horror core board game, which is where this picture was used first.

 

Furthermore, what does "their triggered effect" refer to in Charlie's text? An effect on a card belonging to an opponent or an effect on the character card itself?

Yes, that exactly the information I was looking for! (how did you know that) Still trying to find a higher quality image though. As for your question. Both. If you opponent decides to use Shocking Tranformation, you can trigger Charlie. If your opponent decides to jump a Black Dog into play via its own effect, you can trigger Charlie. Charlie is meant to be more of a support character deterring put into play effects. Still though, wonder if he should get a skill or something... feel like he should have some sort of second use. 

 

Anyway, another preview!

Fairly situational, but useful card. Especially for those heavy control decks.

Nice work! These cards will definitely go into my pool if i can get my hands on a proper printer.

 

Though, one thing that just bothers me in a fluffy immersion-breaking way. Its the title of Kane. "The Politician", really?

In a world of Haunted Detectives and Fearless Leaders a guy who is known just as "The politician" sounds kind of lame, in a lack of more adequate word. 

Why not something that suits his ability? I know it is his title from Arkham Horror, though I think it is more of a job description.

 

Anyway, I digressed from my original point, which was to praise for these cards. Cannot wait to see all of them! Any dates settled?

I kinda like 'The Politician'. It's straight laced and has no frills. It suits a character of that ilk.

I loved the little subtitles in this game. They were a nice touch. Carl 'sinister but not necessarily Evil' Stanford was a firm favourite.

Glad you're liking them so far. 

 

Towards the title. I admit to totally lifting it from the Arkham line. That being said, I'm open to ideas. Mostly I'm on Skelton's side at the moment, but nothing is set in stone at the moment. 

 

As for a date... haha. There won't be one till its completed and tested. Being that this is all happening in our spare time I'm sure you can understand. Still. I'm hoping for sooner rather than later. Got some plans and details I'll be posting eventually. 

 

In the mean time. A little something else to tide you over!

Very cool card. Recycling your discard pile in an event heavy deck is very useful as well as stopping shenanigans is pretty potent.

I like.

These are quite nice, I especially like the idea with Charlie Kane and the "jumper" punishment.  Perhaps his ability could be reworded as follows:

 

Response:  After a character is put into play by a triggered effect controlled by your opponent, exhaust Charlie...

 

alternatively

 

Response:  After an opponent puts a character into play, exhaust Charlie...

I met Magali shortly after the release of the Eldritch Horror game and got my investigators signed by her.
