I had a hard time with this one... because everyone knows what it is...

I almost just posted both sides at once, but I suspect that one face is going to cause more discussion than the new SAI...

So here it is...



If you are nice to me, you might find a nice little 'Treat' come Halloween.
Don't be nice... and you WILL find a 'Trick'

I'm not going to end with the normal phrase, because you can't end on a stinger EVERY time. That would be too CSI:Miami of me...
















It just feels too wrong... Like a strange yearning in my chest. Like an ache in your ears for an uncompleted chord...





What is that?

Wha... what? that was an unexpected amount of info all at once... It's pretty excellent though! I love the Id icon! Also, is that a new SAI, or just something that looks like Fly? Fins perhaps? Wave was expected and neat, Swallow is strong, Tail is nice because it rerolls, so yeah, this is looking pretty good.

Actually, it makes the Lurker look a bit bland...

Interesting. IMO the Lurker is by far the best new monster so far. Unless the Leviathan has some sweet icons on the back, I'm sticking with that.

Though I do really, really want to try my Dragonnes with the Behemoth.

Well... They are fins, but it is Fly.

Imagine him all grown up...

I always pictured Leviathan slightly bigger than that...

I didn't say anything about it being good or not Wink. Its just that Fly, Counter, Volley and Cantrip are pretty common SAIs, whereas Wave, Tail and (to a decreasing extent) Swallow are a bit less common.

As for the back side, I expect it to have a brutal caostland-centered SAI, possibly with an army-wide effect. Apart from that, it probably has a melee, maneuver and save icon. The final icon depends on the SAI. If it isn't coastland based, I expect it to be another maneuver. Otherwise, I expect it to be another save or melee icon.

WAVE!!!

But ya, I always questioned fly on this dude.

Still, unless he has a terrain hopping ability the griffon will hold its place in my opinion. The fact that coast land does not offer path with even a standing stones means it wont work. With that said, can this unit out do a coral giant on coast land? Thats the only question in my book.

Fair enough. I agree with you on that aspect.

Pretty stoked about this guy already! Swallow is a solid SAI, and he's already got other SAIs. I don't know what to expect from the new SAI, but this is shaping up to be a strong contender.

The new ID is great, too. I'm actually impressed with all of the new monster IDs.

I think Coral Elves might be the next race I collect.

Big time huzzah! Loving the presently visible swallow, wave, tail and fly. The ID is quite the looker too. Thanks for putting the fabled five out, ive been looking forward to them for 15 years. I just want to say straight up I deeply appreciate that the SFR crew has maintained, expanded and improved this game. Its really neat to have seen all this come back full circle to the original races being released in kickers, with the fabled five finally in there too.

That is so true. I do really agree. The best new one yet.
