Print and Play are those cards designed to be prize cards, but never printed. [1]

Heroes of Legend[]

The nine “Heroes of Legend” cards portray the protagonists of the Scorpion Clan Coup's conclusion, and carry the following special rules:

  • Each Hero of Legend has four abilities available, only two of which can be used.
  • In deckbuilding, a player must check off (or fill in) two of the boxes in a character's text box to indicate which abilities they have selected. Once marked, the selections cannot be changed. A card with more than or fewer than two selections is invalid for play.
  • A Hero of Legend's printed text box contains each ability that has been selected, and does not contain any unselected ability.
  • Multiple copies of the same character in the same deck do not need to all share the same selections. As with any other card, no more than 3 copies of a character can be included in a player's deck by title.
  • Toturi's constant ability restricting the use of Akodo Toturi is active regardless of which abilities are selected for his card.
