It all starts with watchwolf. A 3/3 for 2 now seems like trash, but in 9th edition this was fucking unheard of. Creatures with more power than converted mana cost always had some drawback. Cant block, can only attack under certain circumstances, has to attack every round, upkeep, is removed at the end of round, always something.

This motherfucker is the exact point where the game broke and turned into bullshit.

I can't get behind rarity entirely as an offset to mana cost, especially if a card comes with options (hell I think options on cards should always drive up cvc) or is multicolored (particularly since every set ever now MUST have some version of dual land).

I think sets overall were designed better under the block format since they didn't have to pack every new set with multiple gimmicks and could develop things over time and across sets.

Two-set block would be best; don't know why WotC threw out the baby with the bath-water and went to a one-set block.

Not defending it, it's part of their monetary model though and it's what they've always done.

Well that and really crazy cool cards are rare. I remember having the wiitigo. That thing was a 0/0 that started with 6 +1/+1 tokens on it and gained them if they had attacked or blocked since your last upkeep but lost one if not. For 7 mana it was okay in a format where 4 got you a 3/3 or maybe 2/2 flying if you were blue.

The game is still in Alpha, but its already gained serious momentum and builds are coming out every other week. It Does have some bugs. So Save often.

What are some books, wikis, lore, stories, games, documentations, whatever about sorcery, wizards and all that is magic?
I'm interested in all kinds of magic schools, systems and spells.

Dominions 4, Stone Soup, DnD and Mtg are all examples of fantastic spells and the magic behind them.

Battlegames/Bofferlarps liek Dagorhir get a bad rap for being "stick jockeys" and for having weapons that don't look super realistic, but the combat is so much better than any traditional LARP. The combat is nowhere near as restrictive, and you don't have any lame spells to deal with (depending on the game)
I hated LARP after realizing I couldn't thrust, shield bash, or grapple and had to pretend to get frozen by douchebags throwing sandbags. You're also encouraged to swing forcefully, no tap fighting allowed.
I thought I'd miss the roleplay, because events are mostly just several largescale battles, but frankly the roleplay was boring and shitty anyways.
My biggest problem is that most participants are lazy and have shitty garb, with no serious attempt to improve or understand actual historical clothing, but it was the exact same thing at every other larp anyways.

Why are there so many "rules light" indie systems? I jive with rules lite stuff, but it seems so over saturated at the moment. To the point where some of them lack so much crunch that they're just campfire stories. Thoughts?

I was going to mention D&D. Because 5th edition is much more streamlined. It's not quite rules light though. I think it's part of the trend though. The pared back rules meant it's become very hip to say how much into the narrative you are and stuff as a sort of backlash against 4th edition but all the Matt Mercer generation of players. Don't get me wrong I'm glad the hobby has grown but they're not quite right.

I think for most games you need a rule system for there to be any tension. If the DM writes the adventures properly they never know the players will pull through they probably should. Having some consistency (which rules enforced with a bit of sense, ie to the spirit not necessarily the janky letter) is a key part of any good narrative remaining engaging. If anything at all can happen in any way it's not tense because you're just waiting for the next ass pull.

3.5 and 4th were hugely rules heavy and 4th was more like a wargame. Now D&D and so a lot of these games have their roots in a wargame but having a slightly lighter framework is what lets us create the exciting stories. 2nd was janky, the combat rules were both specific and limited. In 3rd and 3.5 they piled in options and depth but I'm glad that you can pick a class and a couple of intuitive stats to load up and you won't be miles and miles behind an optimised multiclass (who will still have traded in certain things to do what they do). The use of core rules +1 in the official/store campaigns probably helps a bit too.

So we've had Old Spice with the "Gentleman" class (https://twitter.com/oldspice/status/961362988019064832) and we've had Wendy's recently introduce "Feast Of Legends" at NYCC which is an entire ruleset of its own and a clear continuation of sassy Wendy's lashing out at other fast food franchises.

Am I missing any? What do you think about the backlash of people crying about sexist terms or bitching about it being publicity stunts?

Well there's already MTG settings for D&D so it makes sense that WOTC would leverage their products the other way.

Sucks though because each time they do that crossover it makes it more plausible that they have abandoned planescape and spelljammer.

For everyone who doesn't know, this is referencing a character from Return of the Condor Heroes.
Priscilla Brerringdare - Wed, 19 Aug 2020 16:39:52 EST JR8U8DQa No.29584 Reply
It's a classic Terminator 2 type situation. The Condor Heroes is not nearly as interesting of a narrative as Return of the Condor Heroes, so the question is do you want to watch/read one just to better understand the references of another? Here's my approach:

I'd recommend watching Return of the Condor Heroes, the 2006 TV series. Most of it is available on YouTube. If by the third episode, it's something you're interested in, then I'd recommend also reading A Hero Born, which is the first book in the Legend of the Condor Heroes series.

So, to answer you, here is the summary:

Guo Jing is the child of a murdered Song Dynasty patriot, and has been raised by Genghis Khan's army. He's your classic lovable oaf; kind of a dumbass, but very strong and kind. He is fated from birth to fight an enemy who is his opposite in every way. He winds up meeting the son of his father's blood brother, who was with him when he died. The son is Yang Kang, who is a devious fucking asshole, and wants to deny his heritage and conquer Song. They have some crazy adventures and meet a couple of sexy bitches.

Things turn sour because Guo Jing can't deny his heritage and won't help the Mongols invade Song, so Yang Kang tries to poison his girlfriend and accidentally kills himself. Yang Kang leaves behind his girlfriend and their son, Yang Guo. The Mongol invasion stops because Genghis dies suddenly, and Guo Jing and his girlfriend decide to raise Yang Guo. This is where Legend of the Condor Heroes ends.

Return of the Condor Heroes picks up with Yang Guo's childhood, which fucking blows. Guo Jing and his wife hate him because of what an asshole his dad turned into, and this inspires Guo Jing's kids to keep bullying and fucking with Yang Guo, who winds up turning into a huge dipshit asshole.

Guo Jing says "Fuck this kid, fuck that shit" and sends him to go live with monks, who smell like shit and abuse the fuck out of him. Kid runs away from the monks and accidentally winds up in the Tomb of the Living Dead, which is this spooky cave that the monks don't want to fuck with. Inside, he meets this chick named Xiaolongnu (the one in the picture) who is like 16 but has actually been alive for 40 years; she ages really slow because she sleeps on a block of ice, idk.

She ends up raising the kid, who ages normally, and then they fall in love, but the martial arts masters are like "Nooo you can't fuk ur teacher." But because she's secretly the greatest martial artist of all time (she's super fucking enthusiastic), she winds up raising Yang Guo to be the greatest martial artist. So she gets super ashamed and needs some space, so she leaves the narrative for like 16 FUCKING YEARS.

Yang Guo wanders around, getting into some shit here and there. Then he leads the Han Chinese to defend the Song dynasty from the Mongol Empire, which brings it all back around. Xiaolongnu comes back, they get permission to get married because they saved all of fucking China.

The third story is The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber, and it's not even about anyone, it's about Yang Guo's fucking sword, which got melted down and made into two other swords. It's not great, don't bother with it.
