The hirelings are small versions of the factions that can be added to games at any player count. They introduce surprising new power combinations as well as a chess-like tension to games with fewer players.

Lord of the Hundreds

Claiming to be the true voice of the Woodland, the Lord of the Hundreds spreads distrust and division, inciting torch-wielding mobs to dominate their enemies. The swarming army of the Hundreds can overwhelm all but the toughest defense, looting items and adding them to the Lord’s towering hoard.

Keepers in Iron

An order of nomadic warriors, the Keepers have come to the Woodland to recover ancient relics. To find them, they must manage their Retinue of Woodland contacts carefully, since only the local animals know how to find the relics they seek. Their zealous devotion to their cause makes them a terror in battle.
