Re: [RPG] Adventures in Zendikar (play-by-post)

Goreteg takes a moment to savor his victory, then begins rummaging around the collected offerings looking for something good. He happily discards the journal that he'd been carrying, since it no longer seems relevant. He is unconcerned about the falling rocks, since he can't be injured by them -- in...

Re: February MCC Round 3: A Tale as Old as Time

Just a heads-up to @Venedrex that <12 hours remain to get your entry in (or request an extension). Given that it's already March and we haven't even moved on to the finals yet (to be fair, February is a *very* short month), I don't want to let this round hang for too long.

Re: February CCL, Top 6/Round 3: Make or Unmake

Huh. Definitely an unusual card. Not the most elegant -- took me multiple tries to grok -- and to be honest, not really my type of card, but I can definitely see how it would appeal to some people. It would result in some very complicated decisions, though, which is the biggest risk with these type...

Re: [RPG] Adventures in Zendikar (play-by-post)

Goreteg pushes his way free of the rubble. A normal creature would have been crushed beneath the stone, but for Goreteg it was just like an extended swim. He exhales deeply, then inhales, smelling the scent of fresh earth from the cracks above. Then he regards the horrible foe before them. Goreteg m...

@w0mbat last 3 hours to enter (or ask for an extension) otherwise we'll just proceed with 11, since we're already a day late because of my inability to read a calendar.

Bumping this because it had fallen off the front page and we're still missing entries from @Henlock, @Daylit, @MonoRedMage, and @w0mbat.

EDIT: Just to be clear, there are still 60 hours left -- just wanted to remind people.

Re: [RPG] Adventures in Zendikar (play-by-post)

Flavor: 3. Makes sense. Design: 2.5. Definitely playing into the same space as Unbreakable Formation and Rootborn Defenses but the blocking part is new. That's probably because blocking tricks aren't very fun or flexible, but the addition of a cantrip ameliorates that somewhat. Development: 2. I don...
