No, not a Kingkiller reference.
I woke up from a dream this morning. Twas between 3AM and 4AM (already changed my bedside clock).
The dream may have started with Shadowfist play, certainly the players were Shadowfist players, including one who may not be playing anymore. But, the end of the dream had to do with V:TES.
I had played someone’s deck. I didn’t get it. I told someone how I thought it was odd. He (how come there aren’t more shes, oh right) went on about how I missed the point of the deck by not using card X to be able to do Y and Z. I was all like “what?”. “What are you talking about? I don’t remember those cards.”
So, I looked through the deck. I still didn’t see the cards that it was supposed to be built around. So, I looked again. I finally saw one of the key cards.
It was a Dominate card. It had no art, just lots of text. The mechanic of the card is that you turned Dominate into other disciplines, which is why you could play Melpominee(?) in this deck. There was some explanation (on the card) about why you didn’t want to give your vampire superior Dominate as that would prevent something to do with the uncontrolled region. It was said, not by me, that the reason the card existed was to give Dominate more variety without making it stronger, but I questioned that. You know, turn Dominate into Temporis or whatever may be bad. Actually, thinking about it now, Dominate into Protean would likely be worse.
I finally got the point of the deck. Btw, the name of the card kept reminding me of Hymn to Tourach. Though, maybe that was the other card.
So, I started thinking about how to template this card, as it reminded me of a mechanic that we came up with for some of our Traveller cards.
I, then, fell back asleep, kind of, just so I wouldn’t remember as much to post in this blog.
Yup, gaming has been slight in the last week. I could expound on True Dungeon transactions, as I’ve been back in token tycooning mode, again, plus I built a Spring 2017 transmute spreadsheet where I created a formula to appoximate the value of a token based on its trade items, but let’s save such unsavory topics for when it’s not early in the morning.
