Commemorative Stone Role Cards from the Gen Con Tournament

Role cards are used in organized play.[1] If used the role card is put next to the stronghold card, and modifies the deck construction options as well as options of playing the deck.

The first set of roles were selected during Gen Con 2017.

Currently new roles are selected three times per year—at the Winter Court World Championship in November, after the first phase of Elemental Championships ends in March, and after the second phase of Elemental Championships ends in July. The implementation of these elemental roles is staggered so that each is in effect for eight months. The roles take effect at the beginning of January, May, and September. No clan may select the same elemental role twice. Each clan will always have two available elemental roles.

Double sided acrylic role cards awarded to the top 8 by elements at Elemental Championship events.

The roles resulting from the Elemental Championships 2019 will last only six months instead of eight, as they will be replaced immediately upon the new roles being chosen at Winter Court, as transition to an adjusted Role Rotation schedule for 2020.

The elemental roles chosen at the Winter Court World Champion will be drafted by each clan's top finisher in the event.

Previously roles changes once a year during each Winter Court World Championship.
