I feel like I overuse ron-paul-its-happening.gif, but, man, there is just new and awesome stuff happening all the time, isn’t there? If you’ve been paying attention to the Destiny world today, you might have noticed that ARH announced the next set.
Just in case you were living under a rock, prepare to have your hair blown back. I believe it was out of respect for FFG that the perpetrators of A Renewed Hope held off on touching anything from the Mandalorian because the final set, Wild Horizons, was supposed to have some Mando-themed cards. Once Fantasy Flight gave our community the finger, however, the gloves came off. Din Djarin and crew seem to be arriving on June 11, and I, for one, welcome our new Mandalorian-themed Destiny overlords.
With the third release of ARH’s Destiny comes the third release of complete playset printings from Kingwood Hobbies. I’ve tried to improve the product with each new release, and this one is no different. After dropping the new storage boxes with some ‘meh’ dice trays for the last set, our new Flippin’ Sweet Dice Trays are making their appearance. These are a massive upgrade that will make your Destiny life muchos better. The smooth feel of buttery foam gently, yet firmly, caressing your dice while they slumber will send you to bed at night finally able to sleep without worry.
- First, every complete playset purchased will come with a random foil battlefield, plot, or character. I got frustrated with how difficult it was to show off how gorgeous these cards are through pics and video, so I decided to just send everyone one of them. No idea what you’re going to get, but it will be really foily and really pretty.
- Second, Destiny is a fantastic game system that was run into the ground through mismanagement by its creator. It’s only through the tremendous work of the ARH crew that you and I and everyone else are continuing to play with new cards more than a year after the ‘final’ set was released. This work does not come easily and it does not come cheaply. Despite there being a lot of sweat equity involved in it, there are real dollar costs associated with keeping an enterprise like ARH going. From web hosting to tournament prizes to legal fees to whatever else, a group, even one that releases its product for free, needs money coming in to pay for things. I understand that not everyone can donate money to keep the game going, so I’m going to help by donating $10 of every set sold to A Renewed Hope. You can buy your set printings from Kingwood Hobbies knowing that you’re also doing your part to contribute to keeping the game alive.
