Notes and Rules Information for Secret Base
  • What's a watermark? Watermarks are an image that goes behind the text in a text box (with one addition listed in a second). Unstable has five new watermarks, one for each faction. The one addition is that we consider the faction symbols in the bottom right corner of the Contraptions to be watermarks. The five factions in Unstable are: Order of the Widget – Its watermark looks like a gear and castle; Agents of S.N.E.A.K. – Its watermark looks like a combination key and umbrella; League of Dastardly Doom – Its watermark looks like an explosion inside a light bulb; Goblin Explosioneers – Its watermark looks like a bomb and two sticks of dynamite; and Crossbreed Labs – Its watermark looks like a double-spouted beaker.

  • Can the "watermarks matter" cards care about watermarks from other sets? Absolutely. It's one of the reasons we included the watermark theme. (2017-12-06)
  • How do I describe what watermark I mean? If it appears on a card you can point to, point to it. If not, describe it as best you can. "It's the Azorius guild symbol," "It's the watermark for the Phyrexians," and "It's the watermark for the Mardu" are all fine. If your opponent still doesn't know what you mean, try to describe what it looks like. When it shows up for the first time, point it out. (2017-12-06)
