Continuing their offensive, the Bangers welcome two new recruits who are going to bring their rivals out in a cold sweat. Lennox with his impressive physique and Leila, the meanest dancer on the block. But beware, from their secret HQ the GHEIST are also hatching plans and can now rely on the clan’s new reinforcements, Toro and Luba.
Find these characters in the shop’s Cool Attitude, Danger and New Blood packs.
@Apricotsoup: Your horticultural idea is Roots. They're exactly what you described as far as land based Ulu Watu. They're basically hippies, environmentalists and such so that's a bit too close to roots if you're shooting down Reality TV and Hospital (though I agree with your points)
@Ryuk, you're right. I suppose I just overlooked them due to the lack of more plant based cards or anything strongly tying them to plants, then I just got carried away with the whole ulu-watu thing :3 Would be nice to see some kind of dryad/nymph etc. for roots I guess.
@Apricotsoup about the gods, we're not talking actual GODS like odin or Hades etc. but basically Former gods, became mortal, and thats only part of the idea, the whole idea is that a former civilization before clint city was there has been awakened by i dunno 'priests' of the clint city cultists? And it's fallen gods, mythical creatures and ancient legends.
Eg. A former god of strength now turned mortal may have for ability power + 3 on an already 8/7 and a power bonus also. Also such creatures as medusa, cyclops, dragons, the big snake in the myth of loki would be cool and even HOBBITS are condisdered mythical creatures in this day and age, so one of them could stand as a 2 star card for the Myths.
@Spinalcracker I quite like the idea of a motorcycle gang because it could be a kind of cross between bangers and sentinels. Fitted out with top of the range guns and thick handlebar mustaches. Could easily bring a new gang type clan into the game to match the bangers.
@Meinemene The Asylum is a good idea but how far could you really run with it? Former freak member too insane for even them? A man who think's he's a plane? I suppose there's lots of ways you could go but I'd have to hear more suggestions about it.
The most mentioned idea's of course are the Government and Myths clans, because a lot more idea's can run through them.
Personally they are the two new clans i would vote for if we had a poll to choose from.
Ok I'm a lot happier without full power gods (though the card you suggested is still a bit much imo look at say Dorian for comparison).
A better take on getting the actual gods influence would be avatars and champions of these gods giving strength to mortals, demi gods at best (see hercules etc.) But I agree a good myths base would be fun to explore even if it's just taken from a single pantheon we'd have a huge list (with Norse polytheistic states you'd be able to get in many different avatars as well as things like, yaettyr, trolls, norn etc.). I'm a stickler for strong themes so I'd personally like it to follow a single mythological line, though the roman/greek lines are blurred enough to allow many more ideas than room for cards alone in a single deck so you'd hardly be covering old ground much.
I just don't think the gods should have a direct influence but be done through followers more :3
Still any idea in this area would intrigue me more than enough to start grabbing them
How about Players Guild_ with game lovers all sort, poker,horse race, ps3 lol
or Elementals with characters based on fire,water,earth elementals etc? with bonus 'change'- that exchange oposing card base power with dmg _that would be a interesting and not overpowered thing that bring some fresh into game^
I like myths idea for sure...
motorcycle I don't think it has a point since it eould be sport bikes = all star, bad street guys = bangers, bad guys with guns =montana so I guess that "clan" is allready in!
the governament seems good to me but isn't it kind of uppers place.. I mean uppers is the famous, rich and influence clint city people clan! so I believe any member from the government would be there... other thing would be that almost every card from the government would be a "copy" of a politician so it would kind lost the funny... because it is nice to see parodys of famous people but not a hole clan!
still as I believe I said before... if there's a clan coming out it is porbably allready planned...! anyway let's wait.
Zhupons: There are parodies of celebrities already. Janine and Sydney for example. (Read their bios).Willy is another (OK Willy is more of a gestalt parody but still). Lao CR is mostly likely one as well (Take a wild guess, so no.. Politicians are not outside the reach of UR). Trust me the Card dev team loves making fun of pop culture (as is plainly evidenced).
The 25th is next week. We'll just have to wait and see what the Card Dev Team has for us. (And no.. I don't know, and even if I did I couldn't tell you.)
