Scorched Earth Neoprene Mats Ready to Ship!

Scorched Earth Neoprene Mats Ready to Ship!

The all new Scorched Earth neoprene mats have arrived and will be shipping out to pre-order customers from Monday. The bulk manufactured mats are even better than the prototype, making Scorched Earth our best mat to date. Not only is Shane L Cook's illustration amazing, we have spent more time designing, and play testing, this map than any other. It includes 6 challenging scenarios which include the elemental character shrines Forin (fire) and Eldir (earth), the new demon monster Dor'gokaan as well as introducing a brand new terrain mechanic with the teleportation circles.

We have re-engineered the scenario circles which enables us to include as much variety as possible in various locations. For example, the circle below contains the following scenario legend:

  • Map 1 Shrine
  • Map 2 Random Monster
  • Map 3 Shrine to Eldir
  • Map 4 Shrine to Forin
  • Maps 5 & 6 Soul Pit

Shrines to Forin and Eldir

Scorched Earth includes the much anticipated elemental character shrines for fire (Forin) and earth (Eldir), the latter coming to life in the form of Terra, the earth elemental, whenever a Warband controls it. These two shrines provide an incredible amount of depth to the game and become dominant objectives that players will fight over continually throughout a battle.

The Shrine to Forin - Elemental Fire Character Shrine

The Shrine to Forin - Elemental Fire Character Shrine

The Shrine to Forin is the last of the elemental character shrines set to be released this year, a shrine dedicated to the god of elemental fire. Forin is the most active of the old gods, full of fury and rage against the audacity of the demigods and one who is hellbent on their destruction. It was Forin that sent Inferno, one of his most powerful generals, to the shadow plane, to thwart the demigod's attempts of intercepting souls before they completed their journey to his home plane of fire.

The release of the new 5v5 map, code named "Earth & Fire", sees the battles on Between move towards the area where the shadow plane borders on the elemental planes of Earth and Fire, hence the reason the shrines to Forin and Eldir (Earth) feature heavily. All shrines are important in games of Judgement, they reward map control and are fantastic sources of Fate, the fuel that propels Warbands to victory. The character shrines add that little bit of spice because they also provide an additional buff beyond the standard Fate, and those buffs normally have a significant impact. The Shrine to Forin provides benefit more subtly than say the air (Arden) or water (Wellin) shrines do. 

Shrine to Forin

 

First of all, the Shrine to Forin awards a hefty 2 Fate which is significant and can turn the tide of a battle on its own, however the 2nd part of the reward could, in the right situation, be even more impactful. Buying, selling, and trading magical artefacts, during the heat of battle, is not always easy to do, however Forin's shrine allows any friendly heroes, within 2", to do just that. This opens up a myriad of tactical options and has the potential to reverse the fortunes of players that are under the pump in any given battle.

The other aspect of the Shrine to Forin that has the potential to have an enormous impact is the fact any model that becomes base-to-base with it immediately gains the fire condition. When trying to secure shrines, a common tactic is to place yourself in base-to-base with it, therefore requiring your opponent to push you 3" to stop you contesting it, however that is obviously something that won't be advisable with the Shrine to Forin. Saiyin's Holy Shield will become a powerful ability on maps that contain the shrine, and once again the curse condition becomes very important as well.

We will be releasing maps 4-6, from the new 5v5 map, in the coming days and all 3 will feature the Shrine to Forin. The design team are once again very excited to release another character shrine and feel with the full set of 4 now release, there is tremendous variety in our maps that compliment the 30 heroes we have currently in the game.
