Nanok of the Blade is a playable hero in the eighth Hero and Monster Collection set, Stewards of the Secret. He was previously playable in the Second Edition Conversion Kit.


There are countless mighty warriors in Terrinoth, but in the eyes of Nanok of the Blade, far too many are cowards who hide in metal shells, thinking the skills of a smith can compensate for their own lack of power. Nanok of the Blade scorns these fools—his faith lies not in armor, but in his keen axes and the strength of his arms. In truth, he loves nothing more than the feel of an axe lodging deep in an enemy’s body, and woe betide the fool who dares to meet Nanok face-to-face in battle.
