The City of the Open Hand is a city of the Scorpion Clan.


The Illustration had been used by AEG in the previous iteration of the game on the card named Shadowed Estate of the Scorpion, which was also associated with a Stronghold of the Scorpion Clan.

Errated and Reversed[]

This card received an erratum. The text read: "...bow this stronghold – take 1 honor from that player." instead of "...bow this stronghold and select one – either that opponent loses 1 honor, or you gain 1 honor." [1] The erratum got reversed on April 6th 2020. [2] A new errata was issued on 5th January 2021, and the text should read: “gain 1 honor.” instead “take 1 honor from that player.” [3]
