Raiding the storeroom
AEG has dropped another announcement that annoyed some of us l5r players. After Gate of Chaos expansion, which releases soon, there will be another expansion in nov/dec namely Aftermath. I was like wtf. Another expansion? Where’s the base set dudes?
Most of us are really waiting for Ivory Edition and if it takes too long, some will migrate to other games like namely MTG. The problem with games with once a year tourney scene locally is the lull/downtime/quiet time that follows a post-kotei season.
I wonder if the expansion name is a foretelling of l5r local scene.
Talking about the Gates of Chaos releasing soon, it becomes obvious from this that the base force for non-unique dudes, is 3F averagely. So looks like they are lowering the force? But being a dual bugged set, it’s hard to say for sure.
Also, if they run non-standard games, I wonder how they will treat the gold cost of peeps, seems like a lot expensive now.
Chase rare from the Gates of Chaos Expansion? Productive Mine. Deal with it. You need at least 2x playsets if you’re building a minimum of 2 decks for Ivory Edition.
Among all the other rares available in the set, this card is the one card that all decks need in Ivory Edition. I dont understand the logic of printing this type of card in expansion, where this card should really be printed in base set due to its stapleness…..
In other news,
It’s time for stock take as usual. I have been cleaning up the house and get rid of my excess cards and organised my old cards… like Harry potter ccg, initial d ccg, Duel Masters, a bunch of old Pokemon cards… (which i gave to junior to learn to read), organise mtg cards by colour and a bunch of other stuffs.
I got rid of Netrunner… while the game is good, having not enough people to play with and since i need to drop a ccg/lcg, netrunner gets the short end of the stick. If somehow the game gets more popular somehow, I might regret dropping it early.
But then again, maybe not.
I passed some of my excess Initial D cards to Lit.sensei… I got some of the starters for cheaps so i passed some spares to makes decent decks. This game should be fun for the giggles.
Post house cleanup, so what decks do I have with me in the car at all times?
L5R – Imperial JEK Honor
WS – Madoka Magica Trial Deck (Eng)
WS – Fate Zero Trial Deck (Eng)
WS – Asuka Pilot (Jap version)
MTG – Modern Red Burn
MTG – Modern Infect
CF – Bermuda Triangle Random Cheap deck (Eng)
CF – Bermuda Triangle Rivierre Deck (Eng)
Initial D – Mako Sil 80 Tactical Turn Deck
SW LCG – Imperial Hoth deck / Rebel Space Fleet deck
And… having sorted some of my old stuff… I’m unsure what to do with my harry potter ccg and Duel Masters……. sigh..
