Many lives were lost in Robert Baratheon’s bloody rebellion. Some, such as Rhaegar Targaryen, died in honorable combat on the field of battle. Others, like Elia Martell, were brutally slain at the hands of the conquering Lannister forces. For fifteen years, House Martell has held its thirst for vengeance in check, waiting with the utmost patience. And although the Red Viper’s duel with Ser Gregor Clegane ends in tragedy for House Martell, it is also the catalyst that sets Doran Martell’s plots in motion…
Oberyn’s Revenge, the fifth Chapter Pack in the Blood and Gold cycle, continues the major themes of the cycle and invites you to play out some of the most iconic moments from A Storm of Swords. Even as dark events and schemes unfold around you, you can use your gold and the new bestow keyword to gain new levels of control over the game. As new versions of the Red Viper and Bran Stark enter the game alongside characters like Irri and Ser Garlan Tyrell, your vengeance is about to become more vicious than ever before.
A Bloodthirsty Man
When the Red Viper arrived in King’s Landing to take Doran Martell’s place on the Small Council, Tyrion Lannister immediately recognized that there would be trouble between the lords of House Martell and the Tyrell forces already in the city. Yet if anything, Tyrion mistook the true danger. House Martell’s feud with the Tyrells was a simmering anger, but their hatred for House Lannister had been stoked to an inferno over the last fifteen years. Now, Oberyn’s Revenge offers a new version of the Red Viper for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game—one who can challenge your opponent with utter ruthlessness.
The Red Viper’s dangerous arrogance and consummate skill with arms is represented in the new version of this character. The Red Viper is a six-gold, five-STR character, who features all three icons and the renown keyword. With just those stats alone, The Red Viper is a competitive option for your Martell decks, but his ability is what truly sets him apart: “While The Red Viper is attacking, each defending character with fewer than 2 challenge icons does not contribute its STR to the challenge.”
The Viper Strikes
You have bided your time, hiding in the grass, stoking the fires of your anger and your hatred—but now the sun is in the eyes of your enemy, and it’s time to strike.
