Geralt, we gotta have a man–to–horse talk. No offense, but your riding skills? They leave a bit to be desired, buddy.

Geralt named his every mount Roach, though no one really knows why or what Geralt had in mind with this name. When asked, Geralt would dodge the question or give an evasive answer. Perhaps this had just been the first word that came to his head? Roach, for her part, seemed to accept the name with no reservations.


Whenever you play a Gold Unit from your Hand (note: does not include Leaders), play Roach from your Deck on a random row before that card resolves.
