Custom Cards / Custom Cards Sample from KosmosAlive
« on: February 15, 2018, 03:12:51 PM »
Hi all!
I thought I'd share some of my custom MW cards, made in Inkscape, a vector graphics program.
I think I've done this once before, with cards that I no longer have access to (file broke).
I'd love to hear your feedback and any suggestions/improvements/ideas you have.

File size is being a problem, so I will upload them one at a time or so.

Thanks!

Mages / When do the Elementalist and Cryomancer mages enter the Arena???
« on: November 27, 2014, 05:03:59 PM »
I can't wait to hear news of an Elementalist or a Cryomancer pretty soon.

The concept of a Mage trained in four minor schools of magic - all elementals (perhaps evven five, if you include Ice Magic) is fascinating. . . Would he pay triple spellpoints for Holy and Dark spells, and/or triple for non-Elemental creatures?

The Cryomancer is one I have been waiting for particularly anxiously, since I know that Ice magic MUST be at some point developed. So far, the framework is there with the Frost damage type and the Extinguish attack trait.

The Cryomancer's Ice attacks / incantations could cause a Freeze condition. Any ideas on the effect? I'm thinking Slow or Lumbering or Restrained, etc., and to remove at the end of the round on an escape roll of something like 8+.

So the question remains: When will these Mages arrive?

For a long time I hae noticed that the Wizard kicks ass when challenging most of the Mages. I wonder if anyone else has made similar observations.

Particularly the Warlord and Forcemaster have little chance for keeping their Arcane duel up to par with the Wizard. I think the Wizard has a serious advantage in that the widely-agreed-upon most important spell in Mag Wars, the omnipresent "Dispel" costs one spellpoint for only one mage. . . OP much?  8) This is why I think it would make a lot more sense to make Dispel a NOVICE Incantation. This, in combination with more copies of the spell, would even out the odds a little bit. If this were to happen, I would tend to think of it not as a Nerfing of the spell, but instead as a leveling of the screaming lack of Novice Arcane spells. How many others would appreciate having more than one Novice Incantation (Shift Enchantment) from Arcane.

My theory is that the Wizard is Arcane Wonders' 'star of the show,' so to speak, hence his magical training being Arcane.

The fact that the wizard has no Magic School restrictions (i.e. triple spellpoints) AND he can be entirely unpredictable being trained in ALL of an elemental School.

If the Wizard was comparable to the Druid, then he would be trained in Arcane + Level ONE of one of the Elemental Schools, and Nature spells would cost triple (I've seen others post about the Wizard's aversion to the natural order, in his countering with progress and experimentation).

Maybe this is more of a rules discussion, Idk. I suppose some errata might be helpful in the future   ;)

Creative / Mage Wars - INNOVATION!
« on: November 17, 2014, 11:54:01 AM »
Hi!

This is my first post here on the Mage Wars forums. I've been an ally of the Mage Wars since  few years ago, and I have several of the expansions. I love this game so much, I thought to myself: 'What can I do to help enrich the world of Etheria?' The answer is through creativity!  ;D

I hope other people want to generate their own designs. I will be very excited to see a mtg-set-editor type program for Mage Wars, so that players can have access to Mage Wars' fantastic framework for creation.

As an example of a Creature spell that could be possible with such an initiative, I have crafted a Level 6 Nature Creature named Alutari, Ancient Shapeshifter. Please note that all rights to the artwork belong to a DeviantArt user named BoneGoddess. I do not claim to own any of the concepts, images, artwork, or other digital representations displayed. However, I firmly believe that, with the explicit agreement of Arcane Wonders and all affiliated parties, players who create Mage Wars content should be able to protect their work from unfair reproduction. All I ask is that one give credit to the idea when reposting this; thank you  ;).

P.S. Please, how do I add an image properly??? The attachment only adds a blank image tag after the first try of opening a file :O
