Re: Wo-Sa-Ga revealed!

Yes.

And the Marro better be done. They have 468576x any other "theme," enough already!

Re: Wo-Sa-Ga revealed!

Yeah they need some type of Marro flying squad. Possibly Marros riding on flying creatures. The _____ fliers

Re: Wo-Sa-Ga revealed!

i second the notion that the marro outburst should be retired for some time. if not, the theme of heroscape is going to quickly become a universe being overrun by derma-less anthropomorphoids that generate by spontaneous fermentation, with some hapless heroes attempting to stem the tide. certainly not an eventuality i had foreseen (or hoped for) when i first purchased original RotV set. hopefully, the hinted of future master sets will incorporate some diversity outside the race-dominated themes we've been seeing. of course, all just in my humble opinion...

Wait, is "Outburst!" a Hasbro game! Gotta get that version!

Seriously, I agree. I don't want the Marro fliers to come out before ranged flying squads are available for all the generals. Therefore, I'm all for "stemming the tide", as you put it.

We haven't been seeing it for that long. The only set out of all the waves and masters, including Marvel as a Master, that was "race-dominated" was SotM, but that was done to advance the storyline. I'm all for anything that advances the overall storyline of the game. I think we will continue to get diversity as a rule unless something else needs to become the focus so as to advance the storyline again. I wouldn't worry about it.

In the SotM Rule Book on page 19 (the fluff for Exploration Part 1: Ominous Beginnings) quotes Sgt Drake: "...I look up in the sky as we walk and I shiver at the sight of the large alien birds circling above us..."

Are they Marro birds? Possibly. Could be the completion of the Marro 'Airforce'.

VERY cool if they really planned all this out.
Well, the Hive can't move, and wasn't soupposed to be removed from the board when destroyed...indicating a concept that called for it to be deeply rooted within the swamp.

Any thoughts on my post above?


i always pictured the hive like the phazon meteors from metroid prime 3, big up above even bigger down below.

Re: Wo-Sa-Ga revealed!

Anyone else realize that she's the lowest cost hivelord?

sigh...

It's the same problem everywhere... Women do the same job as men but get less respect and less money!!! Just another example of that 'glass ceiling"!

And i had hopes Marr would be more progressive!

Re: Wo-Sa-Ga revealed!

Wa-Sa-Ga is kinda just like the vipers but way more powerful, because the walking trough water is always nice, especially when the opponent you face every weekend is obsessed with moats! She's a unit that should be in everyones pocket (or a bunch o' vipers).

Where's the confusion? She has a tiny marro rider under her neck scales, plugged into her nerve cord!

In any case, WOW! She is easily the worst nightmare of Kato, Spartacus, Marvel figures, etc. - especially if she has Su-Sak-Na in the army. The combo Nagrubs of the the two hivelords + Nagrubs does more than give her more Life and greater Coil Crush chances. The flexibility of bonding means that you can choose on the fly which Hivelord to heal, according to which is more wounded. She is arguably less vulnerable to being killed than SBN, given his lower Defense seems worse than 1 lower Life.

I am ambivalent about marro fliers, though. They would seem to be muscling in on the dragonfly squads that Aquilla is coming out with. I hope.

Anyway, I think WotC has done a good job of separating the Marro from an implied arthropod theme, which doesn't seem easy to do. It would be nice to see something official showing SBN's mount to be a real Undead, which would allow the Undead to be from Marr as well as Feylund - but that's just going into "HS as an RPG" territory.

I am extremely excited to use her and her friends, plus Sujoah and Braxas, in a Vs. Marvel game.
