Official product release blurb:
Quote:
On the plains of Esfah, the Amazons prepare for their first solo foray into battle. SFR, Inc. is releasing the Amazons in their own kicker pack for the first time in Dragon Dice™™ history. Now you can build your Amazon collection with these packs dedicated to just that race.

The Amazons bring speed and ranged prowess to your battles. Unlike other Dragon Dice™™ races, the Amazons are ivory, and have no link to any particular elements in the game. Instead, they produce magic based on the terrain on which they are located. This flexibility adds a strategic twist to your battle planning.

With this release, the legendary Nightmare makes its first appearance. This aptly named monster is one of the most anticipated dice ever released by SFR, Inc., and will prove to be a nightmare for your opponents with its speed and melee strength.

Each Amazon kicker contains a random assortment of 8 dice. There are 7 six-sided units: 4 16mm commons, 2 18mm uncommons, and 1 20mm rare. The kickers also contain one 20mm 10-sided monster unit, plus a rules sheet . Each kicker retails for $9.95. The Amazons will be released in June, 2014 and are available wherever your favorite games are sold.

That box looks AWESOME!

I am really excited for this. I will probably miss pre-orders, but I can't wait to get my hands on this soon.

I'm waiting for the confirmation that they are on a boat that has left the dock and then I'll put the pre-order online.

Because of the way that Amazon works we can't ship something 8 weeks after you pay for it and I just want to avoid having to fill out all those labels by hand.

So as soon as I hear something I'll let you know it's online.

Yayz! Pity it won't be at Pax East...

When might we know what all is on the die, and any new special rules?

Finally getting around to finishing up and printing out my playmats for the races I have on hand (1st 5 + Ferals). Need the Nightmare details and any new SAI line drawings before I can complete the Amazon mat though.

I believe the Nightmare has already been fully spoiled (an online game with an army consisting entirely out of nightmares has already been played). Yet when I tried to find the faces and the new SAI on the boards I was rather unsuccessful.

edit: Oooh! Found it!

Ooh, thanks. Do we have black and white line drawings without the die shape around it of the ID and the Firebreath SAI? Is it safe to print those Firebreath rules on an Amazon Playmat?

Found the photo: http://agamemag.com/archives/7838
Hmm, have to add a Hoof Maneuver to their icon chart too I see.

Added to shopping cart!! Keep in mind anything else you order will ship when Amazons ship.

I will see if Cliff will let me post a picture of the Nightmare!!

I noticed from the picture of the box that it implies that Nature created the Amazons. But the TSR stuff and your rulebook says Tarvehnehl created the Amazons. Is this an error or a change in the History of Esfah?

An Oversight, but as I can change the rules easier than I can change a box... the history will begin to change.

Honestly, for the mythical 3.0 that flavor text will probably be dropped anyway. after all the 5th monsters are not unheard of anymore.

The history doesn't need to change...you just have to understand the interplay between the gods at various levels and how more than one could have their hands involved in the creation of a race.

Maybe someone with a theological background will someday write a history of the creation of the races of Esfah.

Careful, you are no longer the only one on this forum who meets those credentials!
