  • Hey I just remembered that not everyone knows I have an alt, though hopefully with me using it for the Daily Word cards sometimes, it'll be more clear. Anyway, if you like my stuff on my main, check out my alt where I make stuff when premium runs out or if I feel it's not up to snuff but I like it anyway!

  • It's time to read the dictionary again! In honor of this, I'm gonna try and make a card every day, using Dictionary.com's word of the day in either the name (which is preferable) or in the flavor text. Today's word is Septentrion, which is an archaic word for north. 

    Using forms of a word is also okay if you're wanting to join me on this journey! I'll be using Septentrional for my card today!

      Ok, so, here's how this is gonna work. I'm gonna make a forum thread for anyone who wants to join me, and I'm also gonna (try) and post the daily word for this Vocab Challenge both here and on that thread. Let's have a good time and (maybe) learn some cool words!

      @ShadowReign, what are you thinking for on that? It seems like a hassle to properly word, seeing as exile already functions as "other space".
    • Ranshi
      Ranshi
      @WarriorCatInAhat, I'm going to make that later, but you inspired something different (assuming I can balance the new thing out)!
    • ShadowReign
      ShadowReign
      @Ranshi I guess that's true. So instead:
      Create a card that searches for another specific card name.

      Harbor is creating effectively an extra library right?
    • feralitator
      feralitator
      Yes

      How is it different from (let me check the mechanic name)... Archive?

      I didn't make Archives or the Catalogue keyword, but I know I used them for a while.
    • feralitator

      Harbor is just one single extra zone. With archive, you can get multiple separate libraries.

      Yes. I was waiting on a box when I made the original post of this.
  • Don't you love it when a single minute of lateness loses you points from your final grade equal to a full assignment done perfectly?

      For some reason, I couldn't upload the file I used before. After several days, I only just thought to screenshot it, then upload that...
