Yet again, the slick and elegant Hero of the Capes takes us on a magical journey to the sector of Kala-Niza, where planeswalking is a much easier feat, and a small battalion of trained sorcerers are enough to bring a whole empire onto another world...
This winter's topic is the world of Edgerim, a mystical plane built around the shape of a disc. Long ago, some cataclysm took out most civilisation there, and the society that's left is very primitive.
This contest is going to be different from Season 1, because we will have ALLIANCES! (Maybe. Only if we amass 8 members or more. No promises). The way this will work is that 2 players will be joined into a coalition. They will still have to make their own cards for contests, but they will go to war together. If your teammate will be eliminated, do not fret, the next player without an ally will be put into a coalition with you!
Other than that, the rules are very much the same!
Create an empire from some distant plane that no one has ever heard of (you could use a plane like Rabiah, or make your own).
1. A legendary creature to represent the ruler of the empire, or the one responsible for colonisation.
2. A creature to represent the army. It could be a famous general or soldier, or it could represent a run-of-the-mill private straight from the front line, whatever you think would work better.
3. A card of any type to represent how the empire handles magic. A wizard, or a magic potion, or anything really.
4. A macguffin! This is where things get interesting. Create an artefact that is of importance to the empire. A magic orb with the power to signify omens, or a book containing ancestral magic. It is most important to think of a creative solution.
5. And if you think of anything else, I allow up to 3 bonus cards!
Now, how does this challenge progress? Every once in a while, I will present you with a problem. A native rebellion, an appearance of a new species of beast. You will create cards to counter that problem. An artefact to represent a pact with the natives, or a trap for the beast. I will note down your solution, and think about how that affects events.
You could also go to war with another contestant, if you are feeling extreme. You could gain a major advantage when I judge the contestants (which could happen in 2 weeks, or 5 months, depends on how it goes) if you win, but you could gain a massive disadvantage if you lose. Do you want to risk it? Or would you rather sit at home and sip your cocoa plant beverage?
However, I must warn you, I will only accept 4-16 entries into the contest, because 30 empires trying to conquer a plane would be ridiculous, and the deadline is 14th of January.
