having seen some of the art showing up on FA, I suspect that it will include some new vore themed rules, and speculate that they will not work like my long ago suggestion in the suggestions thread because that would make it too much like hibernate...

Well Reese you are absolutely correct that there is vore in this set. If you saw art of it on FA you likely saw Dark Natasha's Behemoth art (big blue dragon swallowing a cow and parrot). We haven't spoiled that particular beast quite yet, so speculation is still open on him. Not going to say much on him, other than he is not a subtle card.

However the vore mechanic has been revealed! We call it Glutton and it works by feeding your own furres to the Glutton as it comes into play. You can find more information on the main page here, as well as see some of the new cards and get info on how to pre-order the Glutton's Paradise starter deck.

Actually, I saw other card art that contained internal shots that had been posted on FA

I figure this is as good a thread as any to ask: with Fortune out, will we be seeing a written adaptation at some point? I can't remember if that was ever spoken of.

If not, then perhaps the studio can consider following in the DAA Vignettes' wake: conjuring up short tales by willing studio writers showcasing a variety of (mis-)adventures by various persons, Adventurer, Glutton, and Patron alike. It'd be a far more time- and cost-efficient manner of delivering entertaining stories based in the world of Kemah Karah.

Also, since I won't be collecting every card nor displaying them in numerical or story order, can someone give me the full monty on the events this set chronicles? I have a decent idea from the flavor text of a few cards (particularly that Glen Haven card talking about Sev and Asti), but the exact events interest me (particularly Ravamani breaking the contract with Hibiscus and Madita, which I find eyebrow-raising indeed). Oh, and use spoiler tags, for the sake of others.

Don't Sikaah and the Nightmare of the Jinvon at least count as a minor story?

After I see my cards I'll probably tell you directly which characters stick out to me the most. :)

Admittedly this is a lot, but these are of more interest to me than others, though for vignettes detailing "slices of life" and that sort of thing, I'd say:

Odonto's Bathhouse
Cult of Kuushik
Linzin's Lair
Ravamani's Contracts
Sylbana
Kasim and Jeela

Of course, that's answering the question of which stories I am most taken with. I have to echo Taz's sentiment that the Sikaah-Jinvon story deserves more credit.

To answer which characters are my favorites (of those I know and to the extent I know them), I'd have to say:

Kuushik
Sev
Asti
Juuba
Kasim
Jeela
Jinvon/Nightmare/Vonjin
Anyone unlisted is very minor. :)
Sad but true, though some of the more minor characters can get a spotlighting by starring in vignettes (Aldrenn was very minor, but he's now with Bryn in a short all their own). Juuba's really grown on me, and having her feature into would doubtless be a good thing.

One thing that is of profound interest to me is how Patrons recruit Conductors. The articles when Fortune was being previewed prior to release mentioned how Sev caught the eyes of a few Patrons and how contracts for employment were mounting on his doorstep, offers from them to acquire his services. I'd love to see more of that aspect of Fortune, how Patrons inspect the Adept Academy and what goes into the recruitment letters they send out to prospective subordinates, the whole courting process.

Does anyone know when the card spoiler will be updated with Fortune cards? I's hard to plan a deck when I dont know what I'm missing. :p

End of July / beginning of August is usually when the new set gets added to the spoiler. :)
