There are a couple of modes of play – as with the single-player scenarios, you can earn reward cards for completing the raid scenarios against the AI.    One of these reward cards will be a ‘Raid Boss’ avatar that lets you take on teams of players in the casual games lobby. 

We’ve got additional raid avatars and entire raid decks that we’ll be giving out to players in some upcoming activities in January, as well.

In games with more than two players, there are always three quest locations. A player normally can only reach two of these quests. (In a four-man raid, the wing players can only reach one.) If a player on a team is eliminated, then the remaining players sometimes are able to reach more quests. Depends on where they’re sitting.

P1   P2    P3   P4

(Avatar Racesに関する質問に)
We’ve got a plan for the first seven sets that introduces two new races with each one. 

The next set will have cards for Bards and Monks, for example.

Sometime in the first quarter of the new year.

Forsworn Launch Week: An Avatar is Born - 12/17/2007
by Evan "Heimlich" Lorentz, Game Designer at SOE Denver

With the launch of Oathbound, players had their choice of six different avatar races, each with three different kinds of game text. Combine those options with the four different archetypes and several possible configurations of attack, defense, and health, and there was plenty of variety for players to explore.

But it was never our intention to stop there. Once Forsworn arrives, two more races will be added to the mix, each with three game texts of their own -- Iksar and High Elf. And both races take avatars in interesting new directions.

One of the exciting aspects of deck design in Legends of Norrath is faction: whether you intend for your avatar to turn shadow or light (or to stay neutral). The six original Oathbound avatar races could support any of those choices with fairly equal results. But when the Forsworn designers turned to the Iksar and High Elf races, we decided to take another approach. When you create an Iksar avatar, chances are you'll be planning to use it in a shadow strategy. The same goes for a High Elf avatar and a light strategy. This is because, for the first time, the characteristics of light and shadow will be used in avatar game text.

Take a look at this Iksar example: 

Iksar Avatar Example

There are many great ways to make use of text like this in any of the four archetypes, but Lovecraft here is a Mage, specifically to take advantage of all the new necromancer cards in Forsworn. For just one example, consider the Restless Bones pet that's already been previewed. Use this Iksar avatar to bring that one Shadow card back from your discard pile, and soon as many as three others might follow it!

Lovecraft has one of two Iksar avatar texts specifically geared for a shadow deck. On the reverse side of the coin, you'll find two of the High Elf avatar texts tailored to a light strategy. But if you want to play neutral, or reverse expectations, don't worry. The third option for each of these new races is as unrestricted as the six races of Oathbound. Here's the High Elf example of this:

High Elf Example

There are, of course, as many uses for this text as there are items in the game. But I find my most item-intensive decks are for the Fighter archetype. With this High Elf avatar, you can use your Shield of Strife for defense on your opponent's turn, yet still have it available for attack in your next quest phase. And did somebody say "Fiery Avenger?" Or, if Fighters aren't necessarily your brand of fun, how about getting 1 extra power from your Flowing Black Silk Sash on one turn, but still getting an extra level token on the quest phase of your next turn?

As before, you don't have to search booster packs to find avatars -- they're just a few mouse-clicks away. So you can bet the new Iksar and High Elf avatars are going to be showing up the moment Forsworn arrives. Will you "respec" one of your favorite Oathbound decks to use one, or build a brand-new deck with a new avatar at the center? It's all up to you.

Discuss this article in theforums.

どちらを見ても、各方面がNerf! Nerf!言いそうなステキ性能です。
上の文中にもありますが、HighElf+Fiery Avengerあたり面白そうです。

少し前に、Dark/Wood/High ElfがTrait上で"Elf"になっているのは何故だろう、と書いた覚えがありますが、↑のForumスレッドにて同様の質問&回答がありました。

Yep. We decided that for unit cards, we'd show different Elf types by their alignment: Light Elf units are High Elves (like Firiona inOathbound), Shadow Elf units are Dark Elves, and Neutral Elf units are Wood Elves. We're changing the traits on the avatar cards to match this, which means that all the Elven avatars just have the trait of "Elf." We're hoping that players can tell from the images and other contexts which Elf an avatar represents.
(意訳)うん、LightのElf=High Elf、ShadowはDark Elf、NeutralだとWood Elfということで。

ということで、そういう風に決めた(=We decided that)そうです。

Forsworn Multiplayer Week: Get Your Raiding Party Ready - 12/13/2007 
By Chuck Kallenbach

Now that you know how to play as a team with three quest locations, it's time to talk about the most exciting new gameplay format for Forsworn. Raids! At launch, we'll provide two raids for you and your friends to test your decks against, and they're free for all players.

Goblin Dojo

The two-man raid is called "Goblin Dojo." Bring a friend to face the Storm Reach Sensei, a Goblin who runs a dojo that trains young warriors in the Thundercrest Isles. You've been challenged to defend the honor of the Oathbound.

You'll face a total of four waves of highly-trained Goblin opponents. Once you destroy the last unit of a wave of Goblins, the next wave appears on the Sensei's next turn. When the game begins, you'll see the five Goblin units called Disciples. The second wave is the four Emotions, the third is the three Grandmasters, and the fourth is the two brothers, Silk and Steel. That's fourteen units you have to defeat just to get to the final round!

Grandmaster Beetle

The Sensei himself is your avatar opponent, but as long as he has even one of his Goblin students on the playmat, he'sInvulnerable. That's a new keyword that means what you think it means: He doesn't take damage. You can't win by questing, but the Sensei can, so you have to make sure he doesn't finish four quests too easily.

Once you defeat all the students, you face the Sensei himself. When you take him down, you've completed the Goblin Dojo raid!


The Iksar city now called Old Sebilis is in ruins because a mighty undead dragon named Trakanon laid waste to it. Now, that dragon is entombed in a cavern of many passageways and chambers. You and three other friends can try to defeat him in his very lair!

This four-man raid provides three different phases for you to conquer. First, you face a ghostly avatar called the Pained Soul. It's also invulnerable, so the only way to get past it is questing. When you as a group complete a total of seven quests, the Pained Soul is destroyed. Of course, this raid boss avatar will be making that difficult by playing tons of awesome units.

Once you defeat Pained Soul, you enter the dungeon of Old Sebilis itself. All the players' quests are wiped clean, and your new adversary is the Iksar leader Emperor Chottal. He's not invulnerable, but he gets a +2 rune when any avatar attacks him, so send in your best units.

When you've defeated Chottal, you face the dragon Trakanon. He has special cards playable only in this third phase, and I hope you've brought a healer and kept him alive! Trakanon gets a +2 rune also, but only when your units attack. It's time for you to be the heroes! Send in your avatars and finish the job, and you'll win the raid!

Trakanon's Touch

You may be wondering how one AI controlled avatar, even with special cards in his deck, can survive playing against four live players. Just wait till you see the cards this raid boss gets to use! Since these cards can only be used by a raid boss in a four-man raid, they have amazing effects.

We have found that players very much enjoy the planning that goes on with every decision in a raid. Teamwork is key to defeating the enemy, and you'll want to build special decks that work together for each different raid. Each time you participate in a winning raid with a new archetype, you'll receive a reward card, just like beating a scenario. Which player guild will be the first to defeat the Storm Reach Sensei or Trakanon?

Discuss this article in theforums.

two-man Raid(プレイヤー2人):Goblin Dojo
Storm Reach Senseiというゴブリンがメインターゲットで、1体でもUnit(文中では"Student"ですが)が場に存在する限りInvulnerable(無敵)という特殊能力(新キーワード)を得ます。

four-man Raid(プレイヤー4人):Old Sebilis
1)対Pained Soul:Pained Soulも、Invulnerable能力を持っていて、クエストによってのみ攻略可能です。
2)対Emperor Chottal:アバターによる攻撃を受けた時に+2 runeを得るため、Unitによる戦闘を行いましょう。


At launch,we'll provide two raids for you and your friends to test your decks against, and they'refree for all players.

Forsworn Multiplayer Week: Four-sworn - 12/12/2007
by Evan "Heimlich" Lorentz, Game Designer at SOE Denver

Some of my favorite games of Legends of Norrath have been the ones where I've had fun even when I ultimately lost. It happens more often than you might think. Maybe you faced one of the highest rated players of the game, and managed to hold your own for a while. Maybe he busted loose on you with a really clever new deck strategy you hadn't thought of before, and now you're inspired to try something like it yourself. Maybe you and your opponent had a really close struggle, where he only had 1 health left when he dealt you the fatal blow.

Well how cool would it be if the next time you started a Legends of Norrath game, that player was your ally instead of your enemy? With 2-vs-2 team play, you can do exactly that!

The Playing Field

The set-up of a four player team game is pretty straight-forward -- it looks like two separate "normal" games placed side by side on a single virtual "table," but sharing the center quest. To some extent, you might think of the player directly across from you as your "primary opponent." You share the two quests that sit on either side of your avatar, and you're likely to conflict with him (both in combat and in questing) more than your second opponent. You'll only draw power in the first phase of your turn from the two quests your avatar "can reach"; that is, each time the quest on the far side of the playmat from you is completed, it will add 1 power per turn for your teammate and his primary opponent, but not for you and your primary opponent.

As you can see, this makes the center quest of particular strategic importance, because it benefits all four players equally. All four of you can quest towards the center. And what's more, if you and your teammate have units at the center quest and neither opponent does, then you can raid either opposing avatar from there. You may want to constantly gang up on one player until his avatar is destroyed, or you might make attacks of opportunity, going against the player with less ready defense or fewer cards in hand (and therefore, probably fewer tactics to play against you).

The Best of Both Worlds

Players who have sampled the fun Booster Draft tournament format have seen for themselves how exciting it can be to combine cards of two different archetypes. It opens up all sorts of great card combos that aren't normally possible, and can lead to situations you'd never find in standard play. Team play can combine that fun of mixing and matching archetypes with the freedom of using any of the cards in your collection. All you have to do is work with your teammate when building decks, and deliberately choose different archetypes for your two decks. You could even plan for one of your avatars to turn shadow while the other turns light!

We're All Friends Here

The cards you may want to consider most when constructing a deck for team play are the ones that use the word "friendly" in their game text -- cards like this one: 

Insidious Promise

In a multiplayer game, "friendly" cards aren't just the ones you played -- they're any cards played by your teammate as well. Say you have a pretty good hand, but you can't seem to draw any units. Your teammate might be able to pick up the slack there. When you play Insidious Promise, the unit or units you give that +2 attack to might be his instead of yours. And better still if you've turned Shadow and you both have units around, having both played them at that oh-so-important center quest. Insidious Promise will then boost all of those units!

For You, The War is Over

If only you could win every team game you'll ever play. Of course, that can't really happen -- sometimes you or your teammate will be eliminated by fatal damage to your avatar. When a player is knocked out this way, all his tokens and cards are removed from the game, except for any of his quests already out on the playmat. And from that point, it will fall to the surviving teammate to try to pull out the victory. Though now outnumbered, he will get one strategic advantage -- he'll now be able to access all three quests on the playmat, questing to any of them, playing units to any of them, and drawing power for all the quests that were completed throughout the game in any of those three slots. But then, he'll be vulnerable to enemy raids from any of those quests as well, so he will have a tough road to climb. But what a story you'll have to tell when you pull out a come-from-behind victory in this kind of situation!

2-vs-2 team play will add a whole new realm of possibilities of Legends of Norrath. In a way, Forsworn cards won't be the only "new cards" coming to the game -- the possibilities of working with a teammate will make you reconsider lots of Oathbound cards in entirely new ways.

Good luck and good hunting!

Multiplayer Is Here! - 12/11/2007
Multiplayer is Here!
By Chuck Kallenbach, Game Designer

One of the coolest things about MMOs is getting together with your friends and teaming up to fight a common foe. So far, the combat in Legends of Norrath has been a one-on-one contest between avatars. But that's all about to change! Welcome to Multiplayer Week!

Forsworn introduces multiplayer games, which we define as any game with more than one player on either side. That includes a two-versus-two team game as well as a raid game with several players versus a single player (that single player will usually be controlled by a computer AI).

Of course, this raises all kinds of gameplay questions. My goal today is to lay the groundwork for the basic concepts of multiplayer games, and we'll flesh out the details of the various formats later in this week.

Three quest locations

Multiplayer games will always have three quests in play. That's a left and right quest as before and a new center quest location. Players will normally still be able to "reach" two quests, so when you play units you will choose one of two locations like you're used to. Sometimes, when your teammates have left the game, you'll be able to choose any one of the three quests to play your units, but that's not the norm.

Moving around is fun!

You've probably already used Decoy in a two-player game to gain a tactical advantage. Imagine moving across a playmat with three quests in play! Cards that move units from one quest to another can now choose where they're going. The Reinforce keyword you learned about is lots of fun in multiplayer too.

Friendly with your teammates

When you're on a team of more than one player, you're all considered to be "friendly" teammates. "Friendly" means what you think it does: When you're able to heal a friendly unit, for example, you can heal one of your units or any unit belonging to any one of your teammates. Players can whisper in chat to each other for secret conferencing.


When a battle takes place, there is still one player making all the decisions for each side. If you're launching a raid from a quest that has some of your teammate's units, you'll commandeer them for the duration of the battle. Only you can play tactics and use their combat activated actions.

When you begin a raid from the center quest, if there are no opposing units there, you can choose which avatar to attack! If your raid is opposed by enemy units, the defending player will be the one who has the most units at the raid location. If it's a tie, the attacker gets to decide who defends.


When any single player on a team completes a fourth quest, that team wins the game. Level tokens and quest completion is tracked by player, not by team. Your team can also win by destroying all opposing avatars. When a player leaves the game, all of that player's tokens and cards are removed, except for any quests on the playmat belonging to that player.

Preview card? Is that what I hear you saying? You want all this cool new info and a preview card too? Oh okay, then...

Fire Giant

Here's a new unit with a couple of nifty multiplayer effects. The Fire Giant boosts the attack of your teammates' units as well as your own. Plan with your team to dump units to the same quest and then drop this guy to launch a crushing raid you're sure to win. On later turns, use the Giant's Reinforce keyword to send him where he's needed and add his great stats to any combat.

TCGPlayer.com Forsworn Preview: Exchange - 12/07/2007
TCGPlayer.com will be featuring a preview of the Forsworn card Exchange this week, with an article by Paul Dennen, Senior Game Designer at Sony Online Entertainment Denver. Be sure tocheck it out!


Forsworn Preview: Eluviel's Breastplate - 12/06/2007
by Paul Dennen, Senior Game Designer

Eluviel is the fourth and final Oathbound hero to strut down the catwalk this week. We've taken a look at Karlemayn's bizarre new eyewear, and snuck a peak at powerful two-hand weapons for both Terin and Cyndra. Eluviel's item is, frankly, not quite as "showy" as those items were, so he is not likely to win any innovation awards for this one. But sometimes practicality is important. And sometimes the details can make or break an item's worth.

Eluviel's Breastplate

Check out that pose. It's a contender for the cover of the first romance novel based on Legends of Norrath, though I'd bet that Cyndra would win that battle.

Anyway, as I was saying: the value is in the details. At first glance, this is a decent item, capable of defending and healing your avatar, similar to Oathbound's Ethereal Remedy ability. And it can also heal your units in a pinch. However, the coolest thing about Eluviel's Breastplate is that it doesn't just heal your avatar -- it can heal any friendly avatar. What this means is that your allies will love you in a multiplayer game.

I really want to tell you about multiplayer games, because they're fun and I'm excited by them! However, that is our topic for next week's previews, so adios until then, and have a good weekend.

Forsworn Preview: Terin's Battle Axe - 12/06/2007
Preemptive Strike

by Evan "Heimlich" Lorentz, Game Designer at SOE Denver

Terin's special item card in Forsworn is none other than his ever-present double-bladed battle axe. As the most in your face, "beat 'em up" of the major Oathbound characters, one could hardly expect something else. 

Terin's Battle Axe

As a 6-cost Shadow weapon, this might be seen as the mirror of Fiery Avenger. And given how many players were quick to include that card in their strategies despite the high cost, this weapon could show up quite a bit once Forsworn releases.

You could say this weapon really has a +2 damage bonus rather than a +1, given the nature of its game text. But it's so much more than that. First, you have the ability to direct that damage as you wish, rather than as your opponent would distribute it. Secondly, you deal this damage right at the start of combat rather than at the end.

Those powers together mean you can often get rid of a meddlesome unit before it has the chance to do anything to you in combat. Work the Battle Axe into one of the popular avatar-vs-avatar strategies, and you can get an extra damage in every time you play Assault. Just leave it sitting ready in your items area, and you may give your opponent pause before he decides to start a raid against you. And there are a couple new cards in Forsworn (including one of the new avatar texts) that work particularly well with it too!

Forsworn Preview: Karlemayn's Arcane Lenses - 12/05/2007
Forecast: Cold Snap Coming
by Chuck Kallenbach, Game Designer

Poor little Karlemayn. Our masterful Gnomish mistress of cold magics doesn't show up on the splash screen for the game, but she's a starter deck avatar and she's often depicted in Mage card illustrations, so I'm sure you've seen her before. 

Like many Gnomes, our Karly is a bit of a tinkerer, so her Oathbound mask is more of a mechanical goggle contraption than a simple piece of cloth. We provide her with a new version of those lenses in an item card for Forsworn. Each iconic Oathbound character gets a new toy in our first expansion set. (Of course, you can use this card in any Mage deck!) 

Karlemayn's Arcane Lenses

At last! Something that uses the "cold" trait! Once you get the Arcane Lenses on, your cold cards become much easier to play. It's not the same as a flat 2-power discount, since you need the power to play a card before you gain the bonus power. That makes it more of a mid-game strategy, but once it gets going, it's powerful.

Of course, Glaicer Bears are an automatic inclusion. Pay 2 to play one, get 2 back -- lather, rinse, repeat. Aqueous Stalkers is also a natural fit, and will usually give you 2 or 3 defense (remember it only works for abilities, so no bonus from the Lenses).

You'll be using Column of Ice and Shards of Ice in this deck as well. Playtesting has shown that you can only do so much with the exertion effects of cold magic, so instead of Frost Spiral I put in a few copies of Sunstrike for the killing blow.

Another card that gets better in this deck is Staff of the Observers, with all that exertion going on. In Forsworn, you'll find a new Hidden ability for cold Mages, and a big, beefy unit with the cold trait that fits in well with your strategy of exertion.

Forsworn Preview: Cyndra's Barbed Spear - 12/03/2007
Swath of Destruction
by Chuck Kallenbach, Game Designer

All four of our iconic Oathbound characters receive special weapon items in Forsworn. You've seen them wielding these weapons to good effect in the splash screen for the game and numerous card images.

Remember, our Oathbound heroes are unusual characters. They're not bound by restrictions like good and evil, or classes. Cyndra is a rogue and a ranger, a brigand and a swashbuckler.

Maybe that's why Cyndra often wields a two-handed spear, rather than the usual daggers and swords you'd expect a Scout to use. She has a surly personality, so I'd suggest not asking her about it, or else you might get a first-hand demonstration of how the weapon works!

Cyndra's Barbed Spear

Cyndra's Barbed Spear is a two-hand weapon, which means you're giving up the Secondary slot to use it. There are actually two new Scout items and seven generic ones (including promos and reward cards) that a Scout can put in the Secondary slot in the plans for Forsworn.

However, this weapon can be used when your avatar is defending, and that's something remarkable. We like the concept that two-handed weapons can deal damage to more than one opponent, like swinging a big scythe, and that's what the Barbed Spear can do. If you can survive the unit rush long enough to get this weapon in play, it'll kill off lots of weenie attackers with one exertion.

The Barbed Spear combos nicely with a couple of Forsworn cards you haven't seen yet, like an avatar text that readies an item (so you can use the Spear again in your quest phase). There are also two cards that move all opposing units to another quest, which bunches them up nicely for a juicy swath of Barbed Spear destruction.
