It’s not 2018 anymore, and that means we get to like the Yin and talk about them in a serious context. This might legitimately be Matt’s best faction, and hopefully that translates to some somewhat decent strategic insights. You be the judge! And stick around for the final Yin Brotherhood Prophecy of Kings spoiler!

This month on Fireside Chats Alec sits down with the creator and moderator of the TI4 on TTS Discord, PhilRoi. He’s a huge figure in the community who puts in tons of effort and hours to ensure everyone has a safe and fun place to organize games of Twilight Imperium online. Not to mention he’s an incredibly kind person who is incredibly easy to talk to!

Development of Leder Games’ Oath has been completed, and a lot has changed since the last time we talked to Cole Wehrle. So, we decided to sit down with him again so he could update us on what’s new, what’s not, and what’s to come! Additionally, we talk about where he sees Root heading in future expansions, as well as the competitive Root scene and our upcoming test tournament!

For our second consecutive Galactic Council episode, the winner was an update on all of the components and abilities revealed for Prophecy of Kings so far. Now we couldn’t cover EVERYTHING, but today we touch on all of the tech, objectives, and faction stuff we’ve seen. It’s a LOT, so strap in and prepare to get your lace up your analysis shoes. We’re about to go trekkin’.

It’s the day you’ve been waiting all this time for. Nearly 3 years in, and we’ve finally managed to book our significant others to appear on the show. They were a tough get, and we had to offer some major residuals, but we finally got them on board. The Galactic Council submitted loads of questions, and we went through as many of them as we could so that you all could get the inner scoop of what it’s like to be our Partners in TI.

We’re trying to get our significant others to sit down for this month’s Galactic Council episode, but it’s proving more difficult than we originally planned. So, Alec is here to save the day with yet another Fireside Chat. This time with longstanding patron and Discord rabble-rouser, Billy!

And so begins the saga of the most temporary strategy guides ever written. Why are we writing guides for a game whose strategy will be radically changed in a matter of months? BECAUSE! When you start something you finish it! Even if it costs you everything. Even if all you’re left with is a Floating Factory and a single infantry sitting alone in a distant asteroid field. See, I still tied it back to Saar, who this strategy guide is about. And also, stick around for a Prophecy of Kings Saar spoiler!

Deemed “The Jol-Nar of Root,” the Woodland Alliance is very powerful, and rather straight-forward in what they need to do in order to win. However, they can still have rather intimidating hurdles to get over for new players. So today, we want to cover solid play while avoiding the traps new players fall into. Stick around too, because at the end of the episode, we have more Twilight Imperium: Prophecy of Kings reveals!!

There has already been so much new stuff to digest this weekend, but only one thing is actually CURRENTLY playable. Alongside the reveal of Prophecy of Kings on Friday, Fantasy Flight also released the first official Twilight Codex, which contains more Omega components, new action cards, and a whole playable scenario! Today, we sit down with Dane and just talk through every single thing in the document, and Dane shares a few design insights, but mostly we just freak out about all of the cool new stuff.

 

To download the Codex, visit: https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/94/c5/94c59830-533e-47aa-a708-25634575161b/twilight_codex_v1-compressed.pdf

AAAAHHHH! It happened. The expansion for Twilight Imperium 4th Edition, Prophecy of Kings, has been announced! And the only way to celebrate this momentous occasion is to bring designer Dane Beltrami onto the show and go in depth into every new mechanic. Additionally, we have been given exclusive access to one of the SEVEN new factions, and will be doing an exhaustive reveal of the lore and abilities of The Nomad. You cannot miss this episode.
