Origins Tournament 2017
« on: May 08, 2017, 02:12:37 PM »
Greetings Forum-goers!

Arcane Duels is hosting a Mage Wars: Arena tournament at Origins this year!  We are still nailing down the details on which day(s?) and need to gauge interest.  If you will be at Origins and are looking to duke it out in the arena let us know!

I am Sailor Vulcan! Champion of justice and reason! And yes, I am already aware my uniform is considered flashy, unprofessional, and borderline sexually provocative for my species by most intelligent lifeforms. I did not choose this outfit. Shut up.

I am going to see if I can make it.  Have not got a ticket to Orgins yet but may just so I can participate.

Farkas, you should enter Origins and win with Straywood. I'll win my next fundraiser tournament in June with Straywood and together we'll prove Straywood superiority.

I want to see some form of Paladin take it home. While I do think rushes with paladin or buildups with forge and a big buddy or two are typically more popular and will most likely be even more popular in a time format, temple is still the way to go imo. ;)
Good look to all! And make sure to have fun and hopefully get some pictures or video footage!
Btw, grizz for the "Gen Con War," I hope there will be some sort of summary for all of the matches since to the best of my knowledge, we only get to see you vs Coshade.  :(

All sides ready? Remember no killing, maiming, soul sucking, or any other funny buisness. This is just a training match. Let the Battle Comence!

What does your Straywood focus on?

That's it. Farkas, kill the shark at Origins. The Devils mine. I'll also handle the old wizard at Gen Con. It's going to be an un-BEARably good time!

As long as the time is right, and I'm not working the booth, I will participate.

@zot I think you mean they're only dominating the discard pile.....

In all honesty tho I would just like to play new players and have a good time.  Win or lose I want to have to some good matches.  So bring it on. 

 I really don't know what others would be bringing to the tournament besides maybe Sharkbait. So I may have an advantage with a lot new players but I'm also at a big disadvantage not really playing much outside of the few circles where I live and in places I visit like STL.  Again eitherway it will be fun. 

To answer Reddice question my Straywood focuses on swarms but has really good flexibility with some of the higher lvl animal creatures.  I also use animal kinships in my build.  Very much nature school focused.  Still needs some developing but I have done really well with it in the past.
