The woman was the heart of it. [...] The red woman, the servants had named her, afraid to speak her name. "I will speak her name," Cressen told his stone hellhound. "Melisandre. Her." Melisandre of Asshai, sorceress, shadowbinder, and priestess to R'hllor, the Lord of Light, the Heart of Fire, the God of Flame and Shadow. Melisandre, whose madness must not be allowed to spread beyond Dragonstone.

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the next exciting Chapter Pack in the Brotherhood Without Banners cycle for A Game of Thrones: the Card Game!
Coming this summer, Rituals of R’hllor is the second monthly release in this new cycle, and the second Chapter Pack to adopt the versatile new collation format.
While the Brotherhood without Banners remain loyal to the name of Robert Baratheon, Melisandre of Asshai has worked her way into the confidence of his brother, Stannis. Under her sway, a new, fanatical sect of zealots has risen to power within the fractured ranks of House Baratheon.
Featuring the manipulative red woman Melisandre, as well as a wealth of synergy for cards with the Asshai trait, Rituals of R’hllor will bring new deck-building depth to your A Game of Thrones experience.
The never-before-seen cards in this expansion will augment existing decks and add variety to the A Game of Thrones metagame.
Stare into the flames and learn their secrets; you’ll see a bright future in store for A Game of Thrones players...
Based on George R.R. Martin's bestselling fantasy epic A Song of Ice and Fire, A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, playable by 2-4 players, brings the beloved heroes, villains, locations, and events of the world of Westeros to life through innovative game mechanics and the highly strategic game play. The Living Card Game format allows players to customize their gaming experience with monthly Chapter Pack expansions to the core game.
looks like GOT just got more tribal
I agree. Learned needs more love. Even a reprint of The Power of Knowledge would be appreciated, as it can make the Learned characters more versatile.
Also looks like this will contain another Mel. Interesting, and I am sure this one will combo with the themes of the set (or at least with Asshai/Holy).
I think the whole trait/crest-themed idea is really cool, but I really hope Learned crest support isn't left in the dust like it has been in the last few expansions.
