Expansions and Add-ons
The nefarious Marquise de Cat has seized the great woodland, intent on harvesting its riches. Under her iron rule, the many creatures of the forest have banded together. This Woodland Alliance will seek to strengthen their presence by building hideouts and launching missions to subvert the rule of the cats.
In this effort, the Alliance may enlist the help of the Vagabonds, who are able to move through the more dangerous woodland paths. Though some may sympathize with the Alliance’s hopes and dreams, these wanderers are old enough to remember the great birds of prey who once controlled the woods.
Meanwhile, at the edge of the region, the proud, squabbling Eyrie have found a new commander whom they hope will lead their faction to reclaim their ancient birthright. The stage is set for a contest that will decide the fate of the great woodland. It is up to the players to decide which group will ultimately take root.
With the kingdom in ruin the Marquise gathered her warriors within her keep, the end was imminent. The Eyrie commanders had outmanuvered her at every turn only to gather their forces and strike. But as the Eyrie warriors overran the many woodland clearings their supplies began to vanish, some suspected that not every bird in their ranks could be trusted. As the Eyrie prepared for their final assult on the keep great explosians thundered through the treetops. Many roosts were reduced to rubble, the proud leaders of the Eyrie scwabbled, and as the dynasty fell into disaray the members of the Corvid Conspiricy slipped into the forest.
The Conspiracy had won the day and upset the balance of power in the woodland but not even they were able to realize the consequances of their actions. While their agents looked for a new base of operations beneath the foundation of the forest the great Undreground Duchy looked for new domains to master. Millitant lords were elected to Parliment and new tunnels extended their reach to the bright unspoiled lands above. Soon the Duchies armies would march to war.
Protection Fan Expansion
(Not an actually expansion by Leder Games)
Adds the Jackal Legion, the Slither Syndicate, and the Panda Peacekeepers(Sorry for promoting my own stuff but I created a website and I guess that's what I can do now)
An uneasy peace has broken out in the forest after the treaty of Lacerta divided the woods into several provinces with Eyrie, Marquise, and Duchy all claiming land. Increasingly disillusioned with the Woodland Alliance, the Snakes have succeeded in running a criminal enterprise. Now the denizens of the forests live in constant fear of kidnapping and extortion by the Slither Syndicate. This could be the catalyst for new tensions…
It is not helping the situation that there are rampant rumors of an invading army. Come summer; the woodland could face a new threat from the Jackal Legion seeking to extend their home empire into new territory.
This news terrifies some of the peace-loving creatures of the forest. Soon they will band together to put a stop to this war once and for all. The peacekeeper pandas will attempt to stop the forest from battling and creating a unified world.
