The Legend of Korra: Pro-bending Arena @ Gen Con 50

So this past weekend was Gen Con 50, and a prototype of IDW Games’ upcoming Legend of Korra game, Pro-bending Arena was demoed! In this table-top board game, the Future Industries Fire Ferrets and the White Falls Wolfbats go head to head in Republic City’s favorite sporting event.

At least 18 figurines of the pro-benders were displayed: Korra, Mako, and Bolin for the Fire Ferrets and Tahno, Ming, and Shaozu for the Wolfbats. And they. Look. Amazing. The details are gorgeous, the characters are on-model, the and the poses and bending look awesome! In the first image above is a compilation of all the figurines that were obviously Korra. The other characters are harder to tell apart from the available pictures and angles, hopefully we get some nice closeups soon!

As well as this, the game features some cool artwork on the board and various cards and game pieces. We got a clear look at the Wolfbats team card and it looks really nice, plus Tahno’s expression is golden and iconic. Unfortunately we still haven’t been able to see the Fire Ferrets’ faces in full, but fear not, because we’ll definitely be able to see them– and everything else– when the official Kickstarter launches on September 6th!

Until then, check out the above pictures con-goers took!

The Nintendo Switch’s handheld nature is turning out to be a bigger deal than I imagined it would be, and I think it’s going to play hugely into the Switch’s success.

Slapping Tail
The Gorgons Tail is a Primary natural attack that deals 1d6 points of damage. Gorgon can make attacks of opportunity with a reach of 5 feet with their Tail.

Hair of Snakes
Gorgons hair take forms and shapes in a snake like appearance, this gives them a secondary natural bite attack that deals 1d3 points of damage.

Gorgon are covered in scales which protect their body

Skill and Feat Traits
Cautious Masses (-2 Diplomacy)
Most races have a hard time dealing with the Gorgon.

Other Traits
Serpents Lower Body
(Gorgons lower half is without legs, but instead appears much like that of a snakes lower half. They receive a +4 racial bonus to their CMD when resisting bull rush or trip attempts while on the ground and receive a +4 on Acrobatics checks for keeping balance. Due to their odd body shape they receive a -4 on all Ride Checks).

Magical Traits
Petrifying Gaze
Gorgon no longer have the abilities their ancestors once held to turn those who gaze apon them into stone, but they still retain the ability to slow them down for a time. For a number of times per day (based off their Wisdom Modifier), as a standard action a Gorgon may cause a person looking at them (or who has them within their field of view) to make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + ½ Character Level + Wisdom modifier). Upon failure, the person and its gear take on a stone like appearance, and are unable to move (as if under the effects of Hold Person). A Gorgon can not effect the same person with their ‘Petrifying Gaze’ more then once per day (although another Gorgon can attempt to do so).

This race was build using the Pathfinder ‘Race Creation’ rules as a base. They are built at 10 Race Points.
