New treasures: Hero treasures

As our world grew, we thought it would be fun to name treasures after existing heroes. This way, even if they aren’t in the game, you can still get a little bit of what they do.

Will the new heroes have treasures named after themselves as well?

I like the idea, but a couple of the treasure names flow awkwardly off the tongue. Maybe shorten a few? The Warlord's Bell Charm of the Scion Effigy of the Recluse Also, I'd love it if the new heroes had their own treasure representation. Even more if they were usable in the base game!

I thought this achievement might be new companion quests or events. But thematic hero treasures is good too! I love having a lot of variety in the treasure deck.

Are there treasures related as well to the swindler, the aegis, the astromancer and the warden (the 4 new heroes) ?

As hero treasures, I would like them to have options. They are hero treasures after all. What I mean by options is (For Example): +1 MELEE Advantage/ XYZ. Note: the XYZ would be an optional choice. So, a player could choose either +1 Melee OR XYZ. It might be fun if the XYZ did not correlate to battle. Say for example the XYZ could be purchase one extra gear from the bizzar for 1 spirit. OR it could relate to the hero. In the case of Brutal Warlords's Bell.... Spend one Gear or spend one spirit or spend one XYZ to become an Enraged Berserker. Gain up to five movement at the cost of one health per move. Quote" "The Bells...The Bells...The Bells..."

Just a note: all the content we’re showing is in the design stage but still hasn’t gone through development and copy editing. Which means there are still loopholes in the rules and language inconsistencies that we'll definitely be addressing. Feel free to point out concerns (we might miss something!) but these are going to go through a final editing pass before we’re done.

I would argue that some of the text in the app is also confusing. For example: "Lose one item". This occurs during a battle. What the hell is an item? What is lost should EXACTLY match the name of the XYZ. Example: lose one gear, lose one magic item, lose one quest item, lose one magic item or one quest item. There is nothing in the game called an item. I constantly have the same trouble with other games. This results in a massive FAQ. FAQs are dangerous. Although they clarify, they also cause game stoppage, arguments, and rule misinterpretation. What game manufacturers should do is build in a $5000 fee to have their games professionally edited.

@Kevin, the game term "items" is defined in the base game rulebook on page 8. At least in this instance, no clarification or FAQ is required. :)

The treasures that say "upgrade" should say "improve" to be consistent with the design language.

Count me among the folks who think the adjectives (Brutal, Orphaned, Haunted) just make the items sound unwieldy. These are exceptionally cool though, and I hope a signature treasure shows up for each of the new heroes too!

I really appreciate this idea--clever, useful, and feels thematically appropriate. I'll definitely be using these! :D

If 3 skulls come out of the tower when a seal comes off in your current kingdom, does the Orphaned Scion's Charm give you 3 spirit? I'd think yes.
