A brief one today, ladies, gentlemen and Australians, a rare plot card from the Season 2 rule book….
What is this? It is a rare plot card, obtained during campaign play. You accrue these by earning Campaign Points (CP). Eagle – eyed people will spot that by playing this card, you earn more CP anyway, so it can be quite self-sustaining.
Generally speaking, you earn a new plot card for every 20 CP you accrue. Depending on how much you have earned, this could be a normal or rare guild plot card. This is an example of a rare one.
It is worth noting that CP are earnt independently from winning games (for which you earn League Points) or for doing deals with other coaches between matches (for which you earn Favours). What is notable about Favours in particular is that you earn more for losing that you do for winning, which is obviously meant as a ‘rubber banding’ mechanic to keep less successful teams involved in the campaign as it goes along.
I have to say, I am pretty excited by the campaign system, and I hope to play with it as soon as I get my hands on the book.
