If you are new to the Colonisers series and don't want to be confused, skip this bit
*The grand Hero of the Capes marches into the hollow hallway, he has just ended yet another game of colonial conquest, he eyes the native king*
"So I must ask as I am in a hurry to leave this plane, why did you summon me here?"
*The native king stared at the Hero of the Capes, wary*
"Although I would love nothing more than to have you restrained-
*His guards appear from the shadows behind the throne and gather to accompany the monarch*
-and set to be executed for your crimes against this whole earth, I regret to inform you that I did not summon you here."
"Well, then who did?"
*A shadow appears between the two, at first it just seems to be a trick of the light, but as the Hero of the Capes blinks, he notices it collecting and the light disappearing in the hallway, it forms a portal, and an undead sorcerer steps out of it*
"I, did, if you would be so pleased to know, my name is Evyn, the Reaper of Dusk, and I wish to accompany you as a companion for the next game of colonial conquest you will most likely cause."
"I am not in the mood to have a companion, but if you must, then so be it, we shall set out the next day to our next plane."
"It will be my pleasure, Hero of the Capes."
*They both walk out of the native monarch's hall and set up camp for the night, tomorrow they will both venture to start another game*
This is our (yes, OUR) way of announcing that this season will be co-hosted by none other than @EnvyReaper
! The deal is for one season so far, but it might become a permanent partnership if things go well.
*crash* *boom* *badum-tss*
*more flying through the blind eternities noises*
Back by popular demand, it's the Hero of the Capes! He has returned to take another batch of young factions 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...
If you still have no idea what the hell I just said, you will probably get it as you go along, but you are welcome to check out the threads of the first three seasons for extra context:
The challenge is to make cards for an empire that will come through the fragile Blind Eternities of the sector to colonize the plane of Turmoil, a breathtaking world consisiting of four archipelagoes, each inhabited by a different colour of dragon, with sea serpents swimming in between. Your empire needs:
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 vehicle! You can't cruise the seas with sheer willpower, so I need you to show me what your empire will be sailing in
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.
Finally, Alliances will be back by popular demand, I will explain those later.
If this contest magically gets popular and we get to 16 contestants really quickly, I will pick out the ones I like and start the contest immediately. Otherwise, though, you have until the 1st of September to sumbit your entries, and I will pick 6 to 16 entries I like to participate.
P. S. : 1-3 colours for an empire only! No 4-Colour or Prismatic factions allowed!
