Good to know and thanks for the info. I might just dive in on these miniatures then. I have noted that they sold out a LGS's rather quickly, so as I noted at our game meets - local gamers are liking this series.
As for the cards, the deck you use is just a standard poker deck with different suits than hearts, spades, etc.. The rulebook has a conversion chart for using a normal poker deck, or you can buy a Fate Deck (as they call it) for about 8 bucks. The cards are used strictly for the results number and the suits. It's not like Dungeon Command in any way in that regards.
Awesome, that means I could use my Savage Worlds Initiation deck which is just a standard card deck, but with some great gameplay-inspiring artwork on the cards.
By the way, I really dig Dungeon Command. The only problem I have with it is that my cards are so horribly warped that I can't really use them. It really ticks me off that they released at least the first print run with such amazingly bad quality.
Yup, that was a problem with my 1st box set (Heart of Cormyr) too, along with slightly warped map segments. I always place tiles and maps under plexiglass, so the latter isn't too much of a problem. The card warping wasn't enough to prevent me from effectively using them. My 2nd newer set (Tyranny of Goblins) didn't have warping though, so maybe WotC has resolved that quality issue.
