Ooof, Bunker could be tough as he is characteristically a slow starter.  To help with that and to give us some villain deck control I'm going with Dark Visionary.

Three Bunkers to choose from.

Regular Bunker--28 HP, Base Power is Initialize: Draw a card.
Engine of War (Freedom 6 Bunker)--27 HP, Base Power is Locomotion: Discard a Mode card. If you do, destroy an Ongoing card.
GI Bunker (WWII Bunker)--27 HP, Base Power is Panzer-Buster: Select a target. Damage dealt to that target is irreducible until the start of your turn.

Given the amount of DamRed Iron Legacy can get out, GI Bunker could be a huge advantage for the team.

Definitely. That power sounds like it could make one of his tactics obsolete.

Sorry. Had a real hard time choosing. Lots of neat characters i wanted to try out. Still, i had to choose someone who can help fight iron legacy.  The easy and safest choice would probably be Legacy. But id like to try someone new.

So i'll try and see if The Naturalist can help you guys with Iron Legacy.

Alright, four's a good number.  I'll leave it open for another day or so in case anyone else wants in (new players are always welcome)

It's gonna be a tough villain to learn on, but pick a character any character.

Take a look at some of the past games to get the idea, but to explain it quickly you are given a selection of cards which all behave in different ways. Your turn will come up once a round. Usually, you would play a card, then a power, and then draw a card (but there are a lot of modifiers that change how that works).

It's just a case of paying attention to what all the effects of the cards are and tactics come with being adaptable as the game changes.

We do a lot of talking about how the game works as we get to grips with it ourselves.

I hope that covers the gist of it.

Reep correct.  This will probably be a very short and very hard game, so don't expect to win or excel your first outing, but you'll catch on to the general rules just fine.  Since it's coop, the other players and even me as moderator can answer questions and give advice and we will be pleased to do so.  Just choose a hero that looks interesting.  The first six and KNYFE are especially good choices for a new player.

I'd argue against Fanatic as a first character.  I'd advise Haka or Ra - they're both pretty straight forward damage dealers.

There are 3 "versions" of Tachyon available. Each with a slightly different base power and starting HP. But the cards in her deck will be the same.

Tachyon (regular) - HP 27
Power - Rapid Recon -Look at the top card of your Hero deck. You may discard that card.

Tachyon (team leader) - HP 28
Power - Team Leader -Each Player draws 1 card.

Tachyon (super scientific) - HP 26
Power - Experiment -Reveal the bottom two cards of a deck. If they share a keyword, put them into play. If not, discard them.

For more information on other Heroes, their powers, and their cards. You can look them up here.

I'm feeling sick right now and not up to actually starting this, but you an discuss what Environment you'd like to try.  In addition to these, I have 4 more that aren't on the list that I or someone else can tell you about later.  I don't feel up to getting them ready for fancy viewing right now.


The ruins of the lost city of Atlantis, home to amazing relics and the terrifying Kraken.



The home city of Legacy and the Freedom Five.  A shining vast metropolis.


Wagner Mars Base, a research and military base located on Mars, it is the first stop for would-be conquerors from the stars.


A land lost in time, where dinosaurs and other ancient creatures still live.


Often known by it's nickname of Crook city, it is full of crime and curruption and is the home of Wraith and Darkwatch.


More than just strictly legal production and research goes on here.  Beware of dangerious chemicals and mutated vermin.


A strange magical dimension where the laws of physics are constantly in flux


The tomb of Anubis, Egyptian death god, full of traps trails and the occassional reward.


Time has gone completely bannannas here.  Creatures and places form throughout time and space are all mixed together, and that can't be good for the space-time continuum.


FILTER's interdimensional prison, where the worst of the worst are held.  The prison is ungoing a riot and the heroes are unfortunately not any more popular with the guards than they are with the prisoners.


A time Portal has connected the present with Chronoranger's home down, right in the middle of a gunfight with a family of bandits.


In the far future that Chrono-Ranger ended up in, strange cryptids have multiplied and destroyed all human life.  Only Chronoranger, lost through a time portal, and the eternal warrior Haka are still alive.


The headquarters of the Freedom Five and target of villains looking to get ahead.  It was, in fact, designed with that in mind.

I'm not super excited about Wagner Mars Base - I've been playing the video game a fair amount and with the limited environment choices I've been playing it a fair amount.  My preference would be Time Cataclysm - plus I think it fits the game.

It was retconned.  The editors are trying to appeal to children.

It looks like Mars Base has the lead.  If you don't to annoy UY, you can always pick another one.  Also, that one has the potential to shut Iron Legacy down for a long time and that would interfere with my plans to murderize you.

Anything that can help us win against Iron Legacy has my vote. So i'm with Uncle Yuan on Time Cataclysm.

Plus it would make it more interesting if it was a tie. Only DJ's vote will break the tie.

It's up to DJ now. ;)

I think he was referring to Mars Base - there's a card called Meteor Storm that stops ALL damage.  It can really be a key card as it can give heroes essentially unlimited time to set up their tableaus.  I don't hate Mars Base, I've just been playing it a lot lately.  If that's the was the team wants to go I'm fine with it.
