Before the Dawn Preview: Indomitable Home

Found this one trolling the board on the Mothership: Indomitable Home is a decent Castle holding as a 2 for 2. The battle ability seems good, as it is does not require presence, however you still have to bow the holding so it will require some work to leave it…

Before the Dawn Preview: Stone-Hewed Shrine

Arigato Kolat faithful.  Here is today’s preview from the mothership, Stone-Hewed Shrine. I would say that judging by the previous preview and this preview, it looks like the Defenders of the Mountains theme is going to be prevalent early in EE. Not only does this region give force bonus to…

Before the Dawn Preview: Strength of the Mountains

Now today’s preview from the Mothership: Strength of the Mountain. This Kiho can only be played by a Monk, restricting who can use it even more than normal.  The battle action is OK, nothing to right home about but it has potential, especially early in Emperor Arc. The ability to…

Before the Dawn Preview: Goju Sawaki

More previews curteacy of our deligates in the Spider Clan. This card is the first in the new theme of the return of the faceless shadow, Goju Sawaki. This 2/2 Shadowland Ninja for 5 gold is on the small side but its ability to split itself into a pair of…

Before the Dawn Preview: Lion

Typically, you don’t hear the words honorable and Kolat in the same sentence.  Agreed, Akodo Kage was a revered sensei of the Lion clan at one time, so I guess that clears the way for this set of preview, the Lion. Their new stronghold, Shamate Keep, does not contain a…

Before the Dawn Preview: The Red Hunger

Today’s preview was sent in by our friends at the Roc Sect. Typically, we tend to see 7 force 9 gold Nonhuman personalities from the Shadowlands but this strange creature is from the Ivory Kingdom. It has low chi so it will be an easy target for chi death as…

Emperor Edition Themes: Dragon – Defenders of the Mountains

The Dragon have always partaken in different methods that were thought as strange throughout the Empire.  The Niten Technique of the Mirumoto, the magical tattoos of the Togashi, the investigative techniques of the Kitsuki, and the alchemy of the Agashi / Tamori.  But wait, you say that Agashi is a…

Before the Dawn Preview: Utaku Tairu Experienced

Today’s preview card comes from the Unicorn, Utaku Tairu Experienced. A 4/3 for 8 gold tactician is quite strong.  His reaction is also a very good source of card draw.  His is missing a common Unicorn trait though, Cavalry. Now, I know that he doesn’t have Cavalry, but he is…

Before the Dawn Preview: Visage of the Orochi

My apologizes on updates yesterday.  This weekend has been hectic for me. This preview is a Thunder card (though not a Kiho), Visage of the Orochi. This looks like another card to try and help the Thunder shugenja theme but it is still a bit off the mark.  The force…

Before the Dawn Preview: Phoenix

As a Kolat, I don’t know whether to be angry by the fact that Phoenix are now hunting Kolat, Ninja and Shadowlands peeps or to be happy that this may lead to more story time for the Kolat. No one expects the Phoenix Inquisition! Let’s start off with the Stronghold,…
