Oi, greetings to ye, welcome to the Tilted Stern! Come, have a seat, ya look weary. What can I do for ya? Trouble, around here? Just about every day there’s some squabble going on with a gang or someone tugging on the stick up the Bullburg family’s arse. But real trouble? No mate, Aeris is a fairly quiet town compared them big cities. And most of all, despite our problems, we get by all the same. But come on, if ye tell me about yerself, maybe I can help point ya in the right direction. I’m well connected as they say.
Welcome to my first Saga! This is a character-centric, story-focused saga set in small/medium sized town named Aeris. The central theme of this will be around a group of (mostly) well-meaning individuals coming together to deal with the problems of the town. I’m talking about robberies, gang fighting, family affairs, political turmoil, and generally just a bit of this and that.This Saga may not be for you if you aren’t interested in:
Long-form cooperative storytelling and roleplaying
Posting a minimum of once a week to the forums (within reason)
Occasionally underpowered Magic cards.If the previous did sound interesting to you
, than that is the general gist of what’s going on here. Following this introductory post with rules and themes, there will also be a short story/lore post. You’ll be encouraged to pull from it some as you develop your character for this saga. With all of that said, let’s get into the Smithing meat and potatoes if you will.First and foremost, old cards ARE allowed, but I highly encourage new cards to be made
, and they’ll have to be made going forward. But if you have a character you’re dying to use, I’ll allow it, but encourage you to try and tie them into the lore if possible.These are the cards I’m looking for:
A legendary creature with maximum converted mana cost of 4, and no more than 3 colors. Please no X mana cost creatures. This is your character for the saga.
2 instant/sorcery cards with max cmc of 6, with no greater combined cmc of 8. Must be within your colors.
Up to one artifact or enchantment, with a max cmc of 3
Up to one other creature, with max cmc of 3. This does not have to be within your colors. This slot if only for secondary background characters and things like animal companions.
Additionally, you are allowed and encouraged to make as many story cards as you’d like. There are no major restrictions on these, but they’ll only count towards your character’s story, and nothing else.I'd also like at least a paragraph of information about your character when you post them.
You’ll be given points (and favorites) according to: grammar, flavor, mechanical cohesion, powerlevel balance, and realistic card design. After a given storyline/challenge, you’ll be given additional points (and favorites) according to the overall quality of the cards (see the previous for things I look for here) as well as how well your character is represented by them and how well it matches the story and what your character is trying to accomplish in the story.
Furthermore, these points will also be usable to acquire new skills, items, favors, and more during the adventure.Feel free to ask questions, message me directly, or join the slowly blooming MTGCS discord server https://discord.gg/SPUU8a6
