Magic: the Gathering one-on-one?
« on: May 29, 2006, 03:32:21 AM »
Here's a somewhat unusual idea, I think.  Anyone here play a lot of Magic (the collectible card game)?  There are a lot of characters in it that I'd love to get together in some fairly frivolous and frisky situations together, I think.  Akroma and Phage have the forbidden love of all time, and there are tons of other characters that are too great to just be stuck in the form of card art forever.

Anyone out there?  :)

I'd be interested, but not having much knowledge of the various characters, I'd probably need a bit of instruction- If that sounds alright, though, I'd love to do it.

Just to name a few characters, then, and I'll also link a picture to their cards as well so you can get an idea of what they look like (and it usually gives a hint to their personality because of flavor text):

http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=mtgcom/feature/91 contains a good synopsis for the "Onslaught" storyline, which involves Akroma and Phage (and contains a picture of those two.)  Their background is explained with some good detail there.  But to add on:

Akroma (http://gatherer.wizards.com/gathererlookup.asp?set=Legions&name=akroma,_angel_of_wrath) is an angelic crusader devoted to destroy Phage.  Well, or so the story claims.

Phage (http://gatherer.wizards.com/gathererlookup.asp?set=Legions&name=phage_the_untouchable) is a demonic pit-fighter of sorts and has a touch that can wreck human flesh.

Other characters that might be nice include:

Razia (http://gatherer.wizards.com/gathererlookup.asp?set=RavnicaCityofGuilds&name=razia,_boros_archangel and also here in http://www.wizards.com/magic/images/mtgcom/arcana300/985_boros3.jpg) is an archangel in the plane of Ravnica (which is a world composed completely out of urban territories) and leads a guild called the Boros; they're basically warriors and law enforcers.

Teysa (http://gatherer.wizards.com/gathererlookup.asp?set=Guildpact&name=teysa,_orzhov_scion) is a woman who uses her seductive charms to make others do her bidding; she's a big schemer in that way.  She's in another guild in the plane of Ravnica, Orzhov, a group of Mafia-like people who are into spiritualism and ghosts.

the Serra Angel (http://gatherer.wizards.com/gathererlookup.asp?set=Alpha&name=serra_angel) is an angelic creation of Serra, a planeswalker  (think demigoddess and you're on the right line).

There's an article about the 'hottest cards' in MtG here: http://www.casualplayers.org/article/get.php?action=getarticle&articleid=996, although it has no links to any cards.  If you're bothered to, though, you can use the Wizards MtG site to search up card images (http://gatherer.wizards.com/).

Actually... I've been thinking of running a Ravinca game, that is, a sort of freeform in the world of Ravinca. Would you be interested in a 1-on-1 version of this?

Who would be the characters?  I think I'm interested in playing some of the established MtG characters (because it becomes just another fantasy setting without, really).

Really, any Ravinca characters, as well as the planeswalkers, if you'd like to get them invovled.

Razia or Teysa for me, probably (did I miss any?)  What are your interests?  A forced/non-consensual is my turn-on (Teysa could just get in too much on her hands on one of her wiling missions, or Razia could just be captured in combat), but what about you?

The Chorus of the Conclave, Lyzolda, Savra, the Sisters of the Stone Death, and Lumia.

I'm gonna stick with Teysa.  And how shall we be doing this (the scene, et al)?

Depends. A lot of guild-play is possible.

She could get kidnapped for a Simic breeding program.

She could find out the truth behind Selesnyan "brainwashing."

She could be targetted by the Dimir and seduced by Szadek.

She could get caught by a Rakdos party for a little "fun"... or even the infamous Rakdos himself.

Just some ideas that I came up with on the fly.

Rakdos would likely be pretty good, involving a lot of forced-play.  Dimir, too, what with their secrecies and all.  I like the scenarios, all in all.  (And I just got the Guildpact Novel today and I'm reading up on Teysa  :))

Unfortunately, I haven't gotten any of them yet, so I'm not sure how accurate my portrayals may be...

I don't mind too much, I haven't read them in depth anyway.  Which are you going with?

Which idea? Rakdos should be fine by my book.

Teysa x Rakdos it is.  Do you want to start the topic or?  (Because I don't really know how to.)
