Warlock and Priestess Spell book Covers
« on: November 23, 2016, 08:03:36 AM »
Since in Academy there are only Wizard and Beastmaster themed spell book books I decided to customize my extra spellbooks for the Academy Warlock and Priestess and  make some covers like the ones I had to do for text books when I was in school. Anyone do anything similar with their duplicate books?

Here are my terrible results!

Well, we know that Etheria does have paper and not just parchment, based on the flavor text on teleport. So I suppose that these covers might be realistic? At least if the mages who created them were poor. How much does tuition cost to attend the Tower of Night? Somehow I doubt they offer scholarships. Loans maybe. But do college loans even exist in Etheria?

You may want to check out the original spellbook covers when there still was Priestess vs Warlock core set planned.

Off topic, but after looking at those spell book covers, I started browsing the Mage Wars commissioned art by "Deligaris" (same artist as the book covers) and came across this mosaic of card art, including some from the core set and various expansions through PvS, Lost Grimoires v1 and some otherwise unreleased promos (e.g. Bloodwave Greatbow and Lightning Beetle)... but... there's also one that hasn't shown up yet (to my knowledge).

What is that... thing?! A "swamp golem"?

What is that a swamp golem? Not a bad guess.

I was pretty bummed when Tony said those books would not go into production. I guess academy isn't selling well enough to warrant more supplemental product support.  :(

The books may eventually go into production, but right now we have bigger priority items on the plate. Spellbooks as an accessory haven't been huge sellers and we still have stock of Spellbook packs 2, 3, and 4 available for purchase.

We don't have our sights on supplemental product right now, we're focusing on actual game expansions.

You don't technically need the binders. They help when you're starting out and don't know your own spell books that well, buy after that they just make cleaning up after a game more of a chore.

I am 250 thousand percent behind this statement. The book art is nice, but I'm way more interested in more Mage Wars cards/content.

I am actually quite fond of the physical spellbooks. I realize Academy decks are pretty small & would be an easily managed pile of cards, but you lose some of that tactical Mage Wars feel without them.

I enjoy the post match cleanup discussion where we talk about the tactics & strategies we employed that match while putting the spells back into our books. I'm fairly OCD about having all the spells in my books laid out just so & in a certain order so maybe I am in the minority here lol. Plus I'm fairly lucky in that putting the spellbooks back together is really the only cleanup involved for the game since I play on a dedicated arena table that always has a play mat & Plano full of tokens ready for some Mage Wars action.

I may be new to the forums here, but I've owned & played Mage Wars with self built custom books for years & have no desire to phase out the spellbook portion of the experience. To each their own.  :)

By the way do the Academy binders have the same number of pages as the arena binders?
