Root – The Riverfolk Expansion!April 8, 2021
Update: The Riverfolk Expansion is now available on Steam, the App Store, and Google Play!
Get ready for two new factions to join the fray when the Riverfolk Expansion comes to Root on 4/28!
The Riverfolk Company and the Lizard Cult bring new strategic twists to the battle to rule the woodland, and three new vagabond variants add even more variety, leading to dozens of new player configurations!
The Riverfolk Company!
The Riverfolk Company is open for business – the woodland may be at war, but there’s no reason you can’t make a profit! As other factions purchase services, the Riverfolk are able to further entrench their commercial interests by building trade posts across the forest. Establishing these posts is a viable way to score victory points, but so too are the dividends they might gain from their wealth.
The Lizard Cult!
Spread the scaly gospel of the Lizard Cult! Tend your gardens to radicalize new acolytes, and reveal the true extent of your proselytizing power. Taking a gentler approach to woodland domination, the Cult relies on word of mouth (and beak!) so new enclaves can spring up anywhere on the map. By building gardens in clearings they rule, the Cult can also attract pilgrims and further radicalize the animals that live there.
New Vagabond Variants!
Three new Vagabonds skulk into the woodland to help you swindle your way to victory!
- The Scoundrel torches the woodland rather than see others rule it
- The Vagrant starts fights that others have to finish
- The Arbiter offers their services…for a price, of course!
New single-player scenarios and tutorials help you learn the wily ways of the latest woodland warriors!
The woodland is about to get wet and wild as the Riverfolk Expansion comes to Root on 4/28!
