Across the scorched wastes of Volcor, generals clash in their quest for power. While the generals are trapped in endless warfare, not every fight is won on the battlefield; sometimes, the greatest threats come from within.
Kassai was once the daughter of a powerful general, well-versed in the language of war. As the eldest child, she was the heir to her father’s legacy, her childhood lost to years of training, preparing for the day that she would take the reins… But that day never came. In a cruel twist of fate, Kassai lost everything in a single night, as her father was overthrown by his own lieutenant. While she escaped with her life, she was forced to leave her family behind.
As she wandered the deserts, searching for food and water, Kassai stumbled across the Cintari, a group of bloodthirsty brigands who sought the thrill of battle. Recognising her skill with the blade, they inducted Kassai into their ranks. With them, she could lie low and bide her time, gathering wealth and power as she waits for her chance to strike.
Between the dangerous lava beasts, wandering ronin, and rampant highwaymen, there are plenty of targets for a fight. However, in recent times, word has spread of unrest within the royal court; rumours of wizards struggling to control their abilities.
As the generals grow increasingly aggressive in their quest for power, Kassai senses an opportunity to raise an army, overthrow the traitor lieutenant, and free her family from his clutches. At long last, Kassai might finally have the opportunity to reclaim what is rightfully hers.
The Price of War
Word of war is welcome respite for a sellsword; for where there's war, there's work. The promise of copper to feed herself is enough for this nomadic warrior to put her life on the line, and her mind at ease.
Worth Every Copper
Kassai, Cintari Sellsword
Aloof and impassive, Kassai retains the air of nobility instilled within her as a child, even as she revels in the bloody slaughter of the Cintari.
The saber is a cultural icon of the Cintari nomads who roam the ashen wastes of Volcor. These slender one-handed blades cut deepest when an enemy is bold enough (or stupid enough) to engage in hostile close combat. Look to pair Cintari Sabers with effects that can give them go again for maximum effect.
Spoils of War
Some fight for honor. Some fight for duty. Some fight for riches. Spoils of War is the perfect card to enable Kassai to swing with both Cintari Sabers in the same turn, and profit for it.
