A Stranger has come the the land of Armello… and he’s brought a whole bunch of new features and improvements to League of Geeks fantastic strategy game
In Patch 1.2, release earlier today, The Stranger was added to Armello as a new follower, and he brings with him some odd rules…
The Stranger is a Follower that does not abide by standard rules.
When equipped, Heroes will move to a random adjacent tile upon the start of every turn.
In Dungeons, The Stranger will have a chance to be found outside of the standard Follower outcome.
When found in a Dungeon, The Stranger will automatically be equipped. This will override a random Follower if there is no free Follower slot in the relevant Heroes’ inventory.
If the Hero is killed in combat, The Stranger will automatically be equipped to the opposing Hero. This will override a random Follower if there is no free Follower slot in the relevant Heroes’ inventory.
Another follower cannot be equipped over The Stranger but it can be killed and/or stolen by all other standard effects.
The Stranger will return to the Dungeons when its Hero successfully lands on a Palace tile.
Having run into The Stranger in a few games of Armello I played tonight, I cannot help but feel like this isn’t the full picture. I think we are looking at a follower with a few secrets up his sleeves…
In addition, through next Wednesday, you’ll be able to earn the limited edition Stranger Dice Skin (see below), just by playing a few public multiplayer games.
There a host of other changes, all of which can be found in the full Patch Notes, but I’m most excited about the addition of a series of House Rules that can be set in custom games, four new cards, and a host of bug fixes and tweaks to heroes and cards.
I know what I’ll be playing this weekend!
