New promo "Marchland" for the brand new expansion Dominion: Rising Sun (Rio Grande Games)

Is any more information about this expansion available anywhere?  I looked on BGG and RGG but couldn't see anything.

Random guess: Rising Sun - Dawn - The reverse version of Night, used by many fan card ideas. :D

Dawn cards have issues like having to be feature a second type lest they are dead when you donít have them in hand at the start of your turn. Also, they can be simply emulated like with Clerk.

So I guess that the name just reflects the Asian theme and has nothing to do with the mechanics.

Personally, I don't think an Asian theme will fit Dominion. It is very Medieval-Euro.

Depends on how itís done. I think Asian themes fit in better than the Roman theme of Empires. Plenty of cards already have an Asian theme - Farmland and Margrave come to mind right away. Margrave is particularly significant since itís a VERY European word yet features some random Asian guy.

Hinterlands feels like Middle East for me, except for Mandarin. If the next one comes to Far East, it's quite exotic.
Sorry, I am not meaning any complaints, just curiosity.

I dunno I could see Samurai, Ninja, Monk, Hanging Gardens, Throwing Star, Katana, Origami, Mongol Horde, Abacus, Typhoon etc being neat cards that would fit into the general dominion ethos.

First announce of the expansion
There is in fact a new expansion on the way, called Rising Sun. My best guess is March 2024, but as usual I will know more in say February. And there's a promo coming called Marchland (no relation to the month or expansion), which I expect will be in an issue of Spielbox, and all the other promos are available in English from BoardGameGeek so I don't know why this one wouldn't be.

IIRC spielbox says the promo is promoting the new expansion, and the promo's name sounds like a victory card, so are we finally getting more victory cards in this expansion?

A creature can dream.

The promo is not promoting the new expansion, except to the not-what-you-meant degree that you can say that any promo promotes nearby expansions.
