As someone who really enjoys the Witcher outside of Gwent, I'm okay with deviations from lore for the sake of good gameplay!Burza46;n9234941 said:Gameplay is the number one priority, of course we focus heavily on lore, since it's important to us. There might be some inconsistencies, but they make sense from a gameplay perspective. Thank you for the feedback
Well, dwarfs were always a small part of ST. That's true that Mahakam dwarfs or dryads fighting for ST don't make sense, though. I'd say Scoia'Tael is just not a lore-proper name for the faction, but then again, "Nonhumans" just doesn't sound cool.4RM3D;n10509202 said:Same goes for Dwarfs in the Scoia’Tael faction.
Yennefer was his prisoner and had to work for him to save Ciri. By this logic, Geralt should have a card in the Monsters deck since he worked for the Crones for the same reason.Mancoon1980;n10513002 said:Wasn't yennifer working for emeyr, or loading sleeping with him on the side.
Instead of changing, Swallow should be a Silver card that could heal a Witcher, or kill a Bronze or Silver Card (or Gold, if Swallow is Gold like the Trial of the Grasses).Shonendo;n8475790 said:Change Swallow Potion to... something else that heals people. Like, herbs? There's tons of herbalists in the Witcher.

Why are Northern Realms a single faction? Or, conversely, why are there leaders besides Radovid?
Why are there three Geralts capable of one casting one Sign each - once?
Why can't the Unseen Elder one-shot a generic Scoia'Tael grunt?
Why are siege towers weaker than some random Skellige savages?
What are they laying siege to, anyway?
Why does Fog even kill people?
Why doesn't Ragnarok end the game?
Etc etc etc ad nauseam.
There is something stupendously wrong in terms of lore with every single card, mechanic, and faction.
Of course there is. You can't represent anything worth talking about using two sentences that are supposed to also tie a card into a game system.
If they manage to put in the occasional noticeable reference here and there, I consider it a job well done.
