Welcome to Terrinoth, adventurer! Runebound is a fantasy adventure board game for two to four players, inviting you to play as one of six heroes wandering the realm and taking whatever quests you may encounter. But all is not well in the realm: evil is awakening once more in the form of Margath the Dragonlord or the Corpse King, Vorakesh. Only you and your rival heroes stand a chance of stopping this threat before all Terrinoth is consumed in darkness.

Just saw Dice Tower mention this on their twitter feed. FFG must being doing their annual "In Flight Report". Dice Tower mentions that it is streamlined...innovative and fun. We shall see.

I'm sure it will be announced on FFG's website soon.

I have everything for 2nd edition, so it will have to be something spectacular to get me to switch (which I doubt).

"Streamlined" scares the shit out of me.

I'm with Stan the Man - It would take a huge, spectacular, mind-blowing system to replace the old one in order for me to buy in. I'm like Buddy from the Incredibles...the biggest fan (besides Mr. Frank Skeletor, perhaps).

I'm good with my second edition copy. One of my favorite 2-player games.

They posted a video on youtube. My main complaint about the google earth-ish board has been fixed. New board looks great for a fantasy adventure game. Movement is still roll and move....combat. Well, combat is, wait for it....token based. Yep, POG combat. OK then. Gonna need to see a rulebook folks! On a positive note they make character development seem pretty open, which could be great. We shall see...we shall see.

No dice for combat? No buy. Sorry, FFG.

In Fury of Dracula I'm ok with it because the dice system was something that gave a little variance to the rock/paper/scissors system they had going. But tokens for Runebound combat? Get dafuq out of here. I'll keep my second edition, thanks.

Oh, so the game will no longer be watching other people roll a D20 hundreds of times?

Well, now we'll just watch two of the players fiddle and fumble with tokens repeatedly, then consult a chart over and over again. I'm not sure that's better.

If there were an infomercial for the new Runebound, it would show 2nd edition being played in black and white footage, with the players having an EXTREMELY HARD TIME with rolling the dice and being really frustrated. Then cut to 3rd edition, with everyone flipping tokens or whatever. IN COLOR.

When will these game designers learn that the best combat resolution is punching each other in the face until someone passes out.

Don't forget the red ex and the blaring air horn over the old footage. Also make sure that one of the players angrily blows the bangs out of their face, grimaces and shrugs.

Why is there a Buffalo Wild Wings banner behind the dude at 0:48?

I cannot stand Runebound, nothing about this video really sold me on a new version.

Well, you can fumble with tokens while you gently jiggle your balls.

Still interested?
