Seeker roles

Seeker is a trait found on role cards. There are five seeker roles: one for each ring.

Each Seeker role card provides two effects:

  • You may replace 1 province of any element with an additional <ring> province while deckbuilding.
  • Reaction: After a <ring> province you control is revealed – gain 1 fate.
