Spoiler

I am excited to see the physical cards.

/Spoiler

 

When you say post, do you mean "after"? Should I type spoilers relating to things that happen in films after OblivAeon is released here?

That box, in particular, caused a lot of complaints in the minds of certain individuals.

That’s a different box.  That box only contains one card that is the best variant.

Actually, now that I am thinking about this, having everything said in one thread, questions and comments might be a bit much. I am thinking about making a thread for each deck, that you can post (and only post there) spoilers. Thoughts before I do this?

Maybe one thread for Oblivaeon content, one for the new heroes, and one for the new environments?

It’s arrived, redacted was Voss, and he pulls a Dr Doom when Oblivaeon is destroyed and carries on the fight with him wielding Oblivaeons powers.

If I get around to it I’ll post some tomorrow, I have to head to work soon.

In terms of the box, its very sturdy and does have enough room for premium sleeved cards, you may have to put some decks into the oversized cards and tokens drawer however to get it all to fit.

Luminary's deck is filled with devices and cards that find devices and discard from the top of his deck, Devices come in two variants, normal devices that either have an effect and/or a power and Doomsday Devices that have powerful effects but can only activate if he has 15 or more cards in his trash and usually shuffle the trash into the deck.

Given that cards tend to have unique titles, what are Char, Highbrow, and Radioactivist called in Fort Adamant?

So, can we get a list of Missions, preferably with a general "schtick" of how to succeed them, and the respective reward for completing each?

The best thing about OblivAeon (IMO), Luminary's flavour text. There are 3 cards in his deck that show the "story" of an idea to implementation, I love it!

So while I am not one of the fortunate people getting the actual game, I am a total spoiler sponge, so random thoughts from stuff I've seen so far:

The Void Slave card in the Nexus of the Void deck still elicits a NOOOOOO WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO ME reaction from me. D: D: That one should particularly interest you, PlatinumWarlock.

Everything about Luminary's deck is great. He's basically achieved peak mad scientist and I love it.

Akash'Thriya has a number of amazingly boss cards.

The Bottom of the 9th card in the Champion Studios deck is pure hilarity.

Everything about the Form the Mecha-Knight card and its flipside is the best thing ever. Now I want to know who the other person making sound effects was (since I just know Idealist had to be one).

Everything about Nixious is wicked creepy af.

Seraph is awesome. He pretty much has the paladin vibe I wish Fanatic had.

Harpy is totally badass and peak style to boot.

Highbrow is also wicked creepy.

Heartbreaker complaining how Stuntman is being annoyingly flashy in how he fights is best.

Not always the best at social skills; I apologize in advance. I don't apologize for any corny and morbid jokes, though.

I'm really impressed with it.

The box is a lot better than I thought it'd be, it's very sturdy and looks fantastic. It weighs an absolute ton when it has everything in it though, it's definitely not something you'd want to be moving around a lot.

The mission decks are incredible, really good job on them, they really give an epic feel to the battle.

The Ranek Kel’Voss appearance, and how he works, was a major surprise to me (I avoided all spoilers coming in), as were some of the cameo appearances from other heros as rewards.

I love the new hero deck mechanics, I can't even single out one as all of them have something to recommend them. I can already see that they're all going to get a lot of table time.

Kudos to Adam in particular, the artwork is sensational throughout.

The one and only disappointment to me, and it's a minor one, is that the comic book is a lot thinner than I thought it'd be.

Thumbs up to everyone involved in the making of it.

If my memory serves me correctly, this was a clear highlight for me as well. His deck is laugh out loud kinda funny.

Yeah, one of my personal favorite pieces of art in the expansion is Luminary trying to explain to Tachyon and Unity the merits of pulling the moon into OblivAeon, and between exhaustion/bordeom/annoyance they just don't want to hear any of it.

I'd be curious for the same information, especially if the weight includes The Cauldron in its dimensions.

I’d place an estimate at about 12-15 kg, well within my lifting limit but not something I’d move long distances by hand.

I'm interested in knowing the actual pagecount, for one thing. A "standard" comic is typically 22 pages of story, but winds up around 10 pages longer due to ads (now I'm imagining things like Dotitos "They're the crunchiest!" ads in there).

Idle thought I forgot to mention before: Seeing the Virtuosos of the Void art now makes me wonder why Argent is the only Virtuoso with an energy signature (green) that doesn't match his signature color (silver).

Regarding Jeysie's question about the comic book: to be honest, it's very underwhelming unfortunately, which is a shame because everything else about Oblivaeon and the collector's case have massively exceeded my expectations.

It's very, very thin: 16 pages of glossy high quality paper in total, but that count includes the front and back cover (which is just a picture of some Scions), the inside front cover (just a picture of Oblivaeon's head and summary text), 1 page that has no text / 50% just black ink and is just a picture of Oblivaeon standing over a city, and 4 of the pages are taken up by double-page splash screens which contain hardly any text. In short, there's not much in the way of actual storyline content. WalkingTarget, there's no extra content like fake adverts.

In terms of storyline, there's 1 page of Nightmist and Harpy talking about the mist gates, 4 pages covering Freedom Five interacting with Luminary which contains four panels depicting where some of the other heroes are, then 1 page showing the Aeon men attacking Fort Adamant with Void Guard showing up in the final panel. There's no information or storyline developments in it that haven't been covered in the podcast, and it's all very, very superficial. The dialogue is particularly bad, especially in the Nightmist / Harpy interaction which reads like a pastiche of bad comic book writing. The only good thing I can really say is that Adam's art is of a very high standard on most of the panels and the double page splash screens are very cool looking.

Overall it just feels rushed and something that you're going to finish reading in less than 2 minutes and put back in the box.

Spoilery question

Does anyone know why La Comodora is interested in the first human Flight? I have a huge backlog of The Letters Page to listen to (the last 20 or so episodes), is it mentioned in any of them?

I havent seen it yet (fingers crossed with backer number 500 something Ill be in the first batch of collector cases in the US) that seems like a normal comic book to me. Its one of the reasons I rarely buy antyhing other than the trades - i finish standard comics in 5 mins or so, cause I read fast and while the artwork is fun, i don't pay too much attention to it the first time though. - so ... seems par for the course for an actual comic book to me!

Hold on, I'll do some counts.

Standard sized cards.

5 Hero decks 41 cards each - 205

5 Environments 15 cards each - 75

Oblivaeon Decks (Oblivaeon, Scion, Aeon Men and Missions) 25 cards each - 100

Shields - 5

Hero Reminder Cards - 5

Battlezone Cards - 2

Stuntman - 41

Benchmark 41

Void Guard - 164

Variants - 11(New heroes)+5(Freedom Five)+5(Xtreme Prime Wardens)+1(Ra)+1(Captain Cosmic)+1(Visionary)=24

If you got the collectors case = 1(Completionist Guise)

Complete Hero Variant Pack = 69

Total Standard Sized sleeves = 732

Without Collectors Case = 731

Without Complete Hero Variant Pack = 663

Without Case or Variant Pack = 662

Oversized Cards

Oblivaeon Booket (Not really sleevable)

Scions - 10

Inevitable Destruction Card - 1

The Scion Reserve Card - 1

Foil Oversized Villain pack - 1 Booklet + 57 cards

Total = 2 Booklets + 69 Cards

Without Foil Villains - 1 Booklet + 12 Cards
