    Now i am excited about this....interesting.

    To avoid such misinterpretations i would advise you to look at the deck previews on the official plaid hat website before playing a deck.
    (Like https://www.plaidhatgames.com/news/792)
    While that seems tedious it is actually quite interesting and also clarifies a lot of interactions. If you do not know the use case of a card this quite helpful.

    If you dive face first into decks from the end of the Ashes live cycle you are bound to get some rules mixed up.
    Most players were forced to get used to a pair of twin decks over about 4 months before they got something new.

    Don't forget that you can still attack with this unit. Salamanders are fantastic units to help draw games out so that your opponents can be lured into burning through their decks while you wait them out.

    Note for others: Guard and block are different, I was dumb and played a couple games before I realized it cannot be guarded against, but it can still be blocked.

    Currently i think the quality of the cards is comparable to the main product and i would be an idiot not to buy into this while i can get the advantages of mass production.

    The Permission to use offical images would probably cost thousands of dollars, if PHG would even give the permission. In the End someone is continuing a product that they deemed not be worth enough any more.
    They could milk it for money that way and Asmodee (who bought Plaidhat Games last Year) is known to enforce right protection for monetary gains.

    I feel like this could easily spiral into a game that just is inspired by ashes if it succeeds and there is no party i would rather want to develop the spiritual successor to ashes than this community.

    So if you like the game and are unsatisfied with the slightly different Art - maybe just give it a go anyway just to support the community.

    And we're there! You can preview the icon design for my "Turtle Dice" here:

    https://ashes.live/phoenix/dice/

    If you like what you see and think you would like to purchase 1 or more sets, please fill out the form on that page! I need to know: a) is interest high enough to justify a bulk order in the first place; b) is interest high enough to justify molded dice (which increases the size of the bulk order but brings down the cost)?

    And if you want physical dice but hate the idea of non-standard icons, fill the form out, too (just check the appropriate box)! If I find an alternative that would allow individuals to print their own sets using the official icons, I will let you know (just know that whatever I find will be a lot pricier than Turtle Dice).

    are there any plans in place to turn this into a functional physical item

    We don't currently have any plans to sell physical cards (we stuck with the original design, so there's way too many copyright issues there). However, folks can print and play them if they like, and that's relatively easy since there's tons of print-on-demand services that produce quality product for about the cost of an original game expansion.

    We are working on developing Time dice, but again there's the issue of copyrighted images (the turtle and Basic symbol are both PHG's). I am spear-heading that effort, but folks are currently split over the desire to get affordable dice (easily possible and legally safe using custom icons) vs. the desire to have the official icons on the dice.

    I should have some news on this shortly. I've lined up two potential manufacturers (one laser engraved for a smaller quantity, and one molded for a larger quantity), have some custom icons that I am very happy with (but again are a bit divisive because they aren't the official icons), and am getting close to the point where I am ready to gauge public interest to see if there are enough people interested to make a large dice order worthwhile.

    I'll admit I was skeptical when i heard there were fan developments in the works, but everything I've seen is quite interesting. I don't know if I'll ever play enough to take advantage of all these new combinations but I'm happy to cheerlead and look forward to future reveals.

    Interesting, I'm only a casual player; are there any plans in place to turn this into a functional physical item or is this going to languish in the homemade, print and play/ handcraft section of reality?

    The selection of card arts in both previews are amazing!
    Even though they are placeholders, the images represent the cards appropriately.
    Kudos to the team who put all of these expansions together. So excited to see the rest of what Jill and Tolliver can offer.

    That is an old photo, my apologies. 18 is the correct life. We pushed through one last buff as Toliver has shown to be pretty low to mid tier. Also, Brain and I tested the four main actions in one turn. It is best with Fallen because that takes up 3 cards in your hand to do that. However, Fallen will be given a few counters in Jill's deck that will be previewed soon.
