#Redlander Revolutionary (2) [Person] No Constraint > change the faction of a community to Redlander / change the faction of a village to Redlander
#Grassfolk Sage (2) [Person] No Constraint > change the faction of a community to Grassfolk / change the faction of a village to Grassfolk
#Barban Conqueror (2) [Person] No Constraint > change the faction of a community to Barban / change the faction of a village to Barban

Some duplication cards, and some faction change cards.

I’ve noticed that changing factions has never happened, and while it should be rare, it shouldn’t be non-existent, and there should be more than one community for each faction (or less, if you feel you have an advantage with one faction or another).

The duplication cards are probably pretty strong, but you have to draw one, you have to pay for the card again when you play it, and the card will have already entered gameplay, so they should be more balancing, not less. Also, once a card is all duplicated out, it cannot be duplicated again.

against Fine cards, I just don’t feel as if I’d want to be dealt any of them at the next draw, over the other cards in the deck.

against I don’t care for the faction switch cards:

-drawing faction cards is random, making a consistent “advantage with one faction or other” a nonexistent thing (there is faction clothing, but using is is IMO not worth it)

-The best strategy is just making friends with every community regardless of faction.

Also: diluting the deck with further Person cards makes the Rituals even harder.
