Bard, a Fate card.

Fate is a card type that was introduced in Nocturne. Fate cards give out Boons.


[edit] List of Fate cards

[edit] Official Rules

  • Nocturne has Fate cards and Boons.
  • Fate cards can somehow give players Boons; all the Fate type means is that the Boons are shuffled at the start of the game.

[edit] Retrospective

If I did [NocturneNocturne.jpg] today, I would only do 5 fate cards...PixiePixie.jpg for the selection, DruidDruid.jpg because really it's a card that's different each game, TrackerTracker.jpg because it combos with Boons, Blessed VillageBlessed Village.jpg where you get to time it, and BardBard.jpg for simplicity.

IdolIdol.jpg would exist but not have a Boon involved[;] that Boon is bad because some are worse in the Buy phase and people fixate on that. Sacred GroveSacred Grove.jpg, some people hate giving other people stuff. FoolFool.jpg is too slow.

TrackerTracker.jpg and BardBard.jpg do not feel redundant to me. And I like Sacred GroveSacred Grove.jpg, it's just, I know some people are stingy. Yes, some [Fate cards] would have had +Cards if that hadn't been too slow.

I don't think it's the move to cram sets full of mechanics - yes based on my experiences to date including NocturneNocturne.jpg - and I don't think new expansions want to just revisit old mechanics either. Then too, when a set has multiple mechanics, it's best to minimize how often multiple mechanics show up on one card. Instead of it being, "this is so cool it has both cool things," it's, "if you don't like either of these mechanics, you don't like this." For example, some people like Heirlooms but not Boons. Three of the seven Heirloom-givers have Boons. Turns out, that wasn't the move.
