Alright some cool reveals, and a lot of talk about the future! Here we go...
CASTERS RELEASE DATE:
So we got our first reveal of when the next set is coming out. On the Japanese site, it added placeholders for
February 2019 for the new starter and March 2019 for the 5th set! This is quite a large gap of time between
set releases however. Not quite sure the reasoning but glad to see it's still going.
Still no word if they'll be doing clusters like Force of Will every 4 sets or not. Also looks like they are
continuing the trend of only releasing 1 starter deck at a time. In any case we'll keep an eye out in the future
for this set!
NEXT FOW SET REVEALED:
The big news is the reveal of the name and poster for the next Force of Will set! As you can see above it is
called 'The Strangers of New Valhalla'. We can see it featuring characters (as far as we can tell) such as
Alice, Pricia, a Dark Alice doll? And more. As mentioned last week, the release is sometime in January of
2019, so keep an eye out for when a more exact date and pre orders go up.
FIRST CARD REVEALED:
We also got our first look at a card from that set! You can read the original FOW article HERE.
If you can't read/see the image, here is what it says:
Type: Chant/Rune | Divinity 2
-You can pay  less to play this card from a rune area
-Destroy target Magic Stone. Resonators your opponent controls gain [-400/-400] until the end of turn.
So there you have it. In the Rune area this is a 4 cost destroy target magic stone. I could
probably see some problems with it. It is a high cost at least though, which is nice.
So there you have it, the first card of the set! They also revealed the ratios of the set, being what you'd expect:
Super Rares: 10
Secret Rares: ???
They also confirmed Alice is returning for sure! Still no word on Ubers or anything like that in the set, so we'll wait and see on that.
WILL POWER REWARDS VIP SURVEY:
So if you were VIP level on the Will Power App (scanned in enough cards to reach VIP status) then you
should have received a notification in app to take a survey! If not, be sure to double check your app and
see if it was received in there.
I think this survey is important because it asks about people thoughts on this new set, what they'd like
to see in future sets, and what other product FOW could create. Definitely some important information
that could be conveyed so be sure to check it out!
We got our first look at the upcoming promos, and they are awesome! Looks like we are getting a
Rachel Promo, and Forbidden Arts. Really excited to not only see a promo for Rachel, which is a more
expensive card, but also a card from the Starter Deck 'Lost Tomes'.
These could also be the first promos to be sent with the new system the company put in place
(I'm not sure if it will, but the timing could work out as such).
INFORMATION FOR LGS':
So if you are a Local Game Store, there is a new method to get your Promos now. Originally it
was told to us that just by using the FOW system on their computer they would get their promos, etc.
However, that is no longer the case.
Below is the exact instructions from Robert Hebert himself:
They need to send the following information to the following address:
Name of Contact
Along with links to photos or attached photos of play space and the store itself.
Please send this information to: FoWRob@gmail.com
October promos are going out asap and if you want to receive them I have to have your information for the new system. Thanks again for your continued support!!
US Director of Organized Play
So there you have it! Be sure to inform any local game store in the area of this new system that supports FOW.
OSCAR NEEDS HELP:
So Oscar is trying to add even more information of GP's to the website! But to do this he needs help.
If anyone has information as far as dates etc. for GP's that took place during Grimm Cluster please contact us!
You can reach us on Facebook, Discord, Twitter, etc. He wants our website to host as much GP information
