Title: Indianapolis Mages Wanted
Post by: SpellSlinger on September 13, 2012, 06:49:48 PM
Hey Everybody!

So my gaming group, of about five or so, are getting our two copies of the game and we're looking to expand and hopefully get a league together when the time comes.

Anyone interested?

Where are you located in Indianapolis, piousflea?

My group still needs a brick and morter store to host any tournaments in the future...you wouldn't happen to know of one would you?

By the way, does this board have private messages? I can't seem to find the feature...

I've got a group in Greenwood that is definitely looking at getting into the OP program.  I'll try to nail down some more details as to where and when and post an up-date when I get them.

Well crap, I knew I should check back with this site more often... :pinch:

Really sucks we didn't make it on the 20th.  I know my playgroup would definitely be down for a monthly meet up for MW and Netrunner.

Indy Gaming is still looking for some hardened Mages!

Well, the Arsenal is no more... where are Mage Wars addicts in Central Indiana hanging out these days?

I would love to get in more games... I've only had one other person to play when I go to non-tournament settings, and even then that is only irregularly. It seems like no one wants to join us when I'm able to show up.

Boy do I need the practice! (In other words, if you want to win, look me up!)

   We have been playing around town. Sometimes at game time in castleton on center run road. I am working on getting my house fund up to full and will be buying someplace on the se side of town. It will be set up for gaming too. I would expect regular gaming sessions then. It is so sad that arsenal is no more. It had great location and hours of operation.
Title: Re: Indianapolis Mages Wanted
Post by: DaveW on June 13, 2014, 09:31:49 PM
Tim? It seems that we're split between west and south parts of town, and our new Mage couple lives well out Pendelton Pike on the east side. SE side would be a bit of a drive, but a lot closer than heading out to his place.

We will be holding our monthly Mage Wars gathering at Saltire Games on Pendleton Pike in Indianapolis the third Sunday of this month (3/15/2015) beginning around 2 p.m. I might be there 30 minutes or so early.

This would be good preparation for the gathering at Whosyercon in April, whether you want to play in the tournament, team game, or just stop by for some friendly fun.

I look forward to seeing you there!

We all had a great time today... for players were there from 1-2 p.m. until closing at 8 p.m. I believe that we will not be meeting in April as that date conflicts with Whosyercon... but we'll see everyone again in May.

TI3 rocks... I have two games set up at Origins this year, and have a game next Saturday (which starts after we play a game of Rex to get in the mood).

I won't be able to make GenCon this year... I work in Finance and we can't get time off the first week or two each month to close the books.

Hello! I'm a new player living in Indianapolis, and am having a hard time finding new people to play with. Is anyone this thread still actively playing or setting up events? As I said I'm quite new, only have the core set and druid v necro, but I'm eager to learn more about the game and play some.

where are you going to put everyone... one board where we usually play, two in the next room, a couple more where the StL guys were concentrated the last time I was there... I guess you can fit 14-16.

Shoot... why not just have a tourney there lol
Title: Re: Indianapolis Mages Wanted
Post by: zot on October 08, 2018, 07:15:53 PM
that has been brought up as a possibility. we will determine as we get closer. hope you are making it too. I also have a couple tables downstairs too.

We just did a 3 vs 3 on a 6x3 with starting position in direct view of one of your opponents.

Playing to 1 Mage death with no life bonding between teammates.

Main advantage is that it only took an hour or so :)

Post by: zot on October 20, 2018, 12:33:35 AM
games have been going since Thursday night when jbuzz and his buddy arrived. great games are happening.

 currently siren is undefeated by a few players at 3-0.
all who could not make it are missing out big time
of course we all wish you were here too
Title: Re: Indianapolis Mages Wanted

Thanks for the update Zot! Sounds like an awesome time.

Any Domination style matches?
Title: Re: Indianapolis Mages Wanted
Post by: farkas1 on October 21, 2018, 12:25:25 PM
Fun games and another good time at Zots!!! Frost Siren has gotten better and I’m working in on fine tuning it!  I got six frost tokens stacked on the mage for 12 damage.  Burst of frost is pretty sweet and can be deadly.  Got a lot of solid games in too help round out some of my books.  Jbuzzsaw force master is pretty awesome,  loved Toms builds too especially the Joktari crab book.  Zot had his impressive solid builds as well all which were very tough. VictorE Necro and Wizard are still doing great as well.
Title: Re: Indianapolis Mages Wanted
Post by: zot on October 21, 2018, 12:45:22 PM
indeed the siren had a great showing. 3-1. was a great time as usual. great games with great people. next event perhaps in early December or feb/march depending on how many can make it.

Hey Tim,

I tried calling tonight to see if you were able to get together tomorrow night, but found out that I only had two work numbers for you... I guess you only called from an 9000 and 8000 number since I switched phones.

I am planning on having a serious tournament for 11/16 Saturday. hope to start at 1pm or so. I will post rules for it here in advance. but the starting point will be the 2019 gencon rules as a base. there may be a couple of card modifications beyond those base rules. the 2 cards being considered for change to printed version are ritual of kallek, and perhaps pillar of righteous flame. just a thought at the moment.

should be a blast. looking forward to seeing folks. more to come....
Title: Re: Indianapolis Mages Wanted
Post by: DaveW on September 13, 2019, 08:16:25 PM
You might want to put in something about Freezes and Burns cancelling before Freeze damage.
Title: Re: Indianapolis Mages Wanted
Post by: zot on September 13, 2019, 09:35:39 PM
will do.
Title: Re: Indianapolis Mages Wanted
Post by: zot on September 29, 2019, 11:28:49 AM
only six weeks or so until the next mw weekend here in indy. if you have not yet informed me if you are planning on making it, please contact me and let me know and I will get you further details.

tournament on Saturday (11/16)  to be held. prizes will be available too. thanks arcane wonders. we will be using gencon tournament rules plus a couple of additions that the arcane duels team uses for their online events listed below.


• Disciple of Radiance Text Change:
Once per round, whenever your Mage casts or reveals a healing spell, Disciple of Radiance may deal 1 direct light damage to a target creature in her zone

• Casting a Spell - Change to the end of the Pay Costs Step
Previous wording - If you cannot pay all of the costs, the spell is cancelled and discarded, and you have lost the action.
New wording -If you cannot pay all of the costs, the spell is cancelled and obliterated, and you have lost the action.
Everything else remains unchanged about the step

• Steep Hill
Steep hill will block Line of Sight if you cast a spell and it goes through two diagonal sections of the zone.

• Force Pull
Once per round, the Forcemaster may cast this quick Force spell. Target creature is Pushed 1 zone towards the source of this spell. Will not Push a creature through a wall with the Passage Attacks trait.

• Trample
- If a Flying creature attacks a non-Flying object, it loses Flying until the end of the attack.
- Elusive Creatures can ignore guards when making a Trample Attack
- Defenses that do not work against Melee attacks cannot be used during the Avoid Attack step, however all other types may be (choosing one during the step following normal rules).

• Symbiotic Orb
Symbiotic orb triggers during the Avoid Attack Step

• Burns
Object is on fire. This is a flame condition. Each Upkeep Phase, roll 1 attack die of direct flame damage for each burn marker on each object. On a roll of “0,” remove that burn marker. Burn markers have a removal cost of 2.

additionally:
if after an effect assigns burns or freezes to a target, before resolving damage, if the condition's opposite (freeze and burn oppose each other) exists on the target, remove one of each until only one condition remains on the target. then proceed with final resolution normally.

• Dig in and Press the Attack only apply to the zone they are in

• Object Enchantments, equipment, creatures, and conjurations are spells which represents objects in the game, remaining in play after they are cast. The Mage is also considered an object. Incantation and attack spells do not become objects.

• Swarm (Please remember all non-mage objects are also spells)
Creatures with the Swarm trait cannot be targeted by non-attack actions or spells that do not specifically target Swarm creatures.  When attacking, Creatures with the Swarm trait may make additional strikes equal to their remaining health.  Additionally, they are immune to conditions, healing, and life gain that does not target swarms. Non-zone attacks do a maximum of 1 damage to them. Swarms cannot guard.

• The Embalmed
When summoning The Embalmed, remove target non-Epic Living creature in any discard pile from the game. This creature becomes a copy of the removed creature, gaining The Embalmed’s traits and subtypes. X= the removed creature’s mana cost

• ritual of kallek
this spell will be a full cast spell.

• pillar of righteous flame
will no longer attack enemy creatures that enter its zone.


   the last 2 items are for data gathering to see if they help balance a few spells. for instance regarding ritual; all other mana gain spells are full actions. consider crumble, remove curse, disperse, and meditation amulet. ritual will join these as a full cast spell. also, for pillar, it would be good to see if removing the enter zone attack portion of the spell helps balance this powerful spell.

  looking forward to seeing everyone soon.

Post by: DaveW on September 30, 2019, 06:47:04 PM
Are these changes in effect for the entire weekend, or are these just tournament rules. I will only be playing casually on Friday, so just need to know if I should replace the Pillar in some of my books.
