Hello Arcadians! Time has flown by and it's hard to believe it has been almost two years since I last posted. However, I just want you to know that I'm going to be putting more time into the site in a big way. I'd like to officially announce that I'm creating an expansion for Arcadia!
This will be a "fan" creation and is not affiliated with White Wolf in any way. I just thought I'd like to create some additional cards that can be used with the game and finish telling the story that began with the first two sets. I haven't committed to a name yet - I've been back and forth between King Ardlanth's Fate (KAF), Road to Skyeholm (RTS)., or Day of Darkening (DOD). It will not be called The Lion's Den, which was White Wolf's intended name, and I have no wish to infringe on that.
The setting begins after the events at the end of KIM, as the players look to Skyeholm, the ruling kingdom of Arcadia, to solve the puzzle of The Darkening and High King Ardlanth's fate. Skyeholm has three vassal kingdoms surrounding it: Ardenmore, Middlemarch, and the Arborian Nation. To the south of Middlemarch are the Fallen Lands, and to the North of Ardenmore is the Frost Kingdom. Like the original two games that tell a story when the quest cards are followed in a linear progression, this series of quests will take you from Skyholme to the Arborian Nation, from the Arborian Nation through familiar territory in Ardenmore to the Frost Nation, back through Ardenmore and Middlemarch, and into the dreaded Fallen Lands. From there what will happen is yet to be told.
This expansion will introduce new cards of every type, and reintroduce some familiar cards that have changed due to the events in TWH and KIM. However, the set will tilt heavily towards Quest, Waylay, and Map cards, as they will be the main difference from the released sets, which have plenty of Characters, Arts, Abilities, Flaws, and so on. I do have some artwork lined up for the new cards. I'm not certain how many cards will be in the set, but it is likely to be around 200 to 250 or so. That's still a lot of cards!
What I plan to do is work on cards then release them one at a time on the site, similar to the Ogre King Road card I created previously. I'll even discuss printing your own versions of the card for actual use! So stayed tuned for more info as it appears...
