Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Obi-Wan Kenobi Starter Set, the General Grievous Starter Set, and Convergence booster packs for Star Wars: Destiny….

As the start of a new block of sets, Convergence introduces plenty of new themes, and even a new card type, into Star Wars: Destiny! Look for a focus on character subtypes like Jeditrooper, and leader, as well as an emphasis on new plots and powerful downgrades to hinder your foes!

Since the launch of Star Wars: Destiny, upgrades have always been an essential part of deckbuilding. By attaching these cards to your character, you can roll out additional dice every turn and receive other helpful benefits. Convergence introduces a dark reflection to these enhancements in the form of downgrades—cards that you attach to your opponent’s characters. A separate card type from upgrades, every character can have up to three downgrades attached to them. Naturally, these downgrades hinder your opponent in some way, with cards like Wounded  (Convergence, 161) permanently reducing a character’s health. Even the most stalwart characters can fall to downgrades, and each color has these cards in their own flavor.

For example, Yellow receives a cavalcade of bounties in Convergence. These are downgrades that provide a bonus when the attached character is defeated, a helpful reward for bringing in your target. Wanted  (Convergence, 143) provides a windfall of resources, while Death Mark  (Convergence, 39) lets you draw three cards when you defeat the attached character. Naturally, you could attach both of these downgrades to your primary target, giving you a massive boost of momentum when you fulfill the contract. Look for these bounties and more within Convergence!
