Greetings from an apprentice.
« on: January 21, 2014, 06:10:37 PM »
Hello Mage Wars community. Finally having been accepted into your ranks here, I'd like to introduce myself.

I found out about Mage Wars through The Dice Tower and was instantly hooked. I started playing Magic back when Legends was just ending and The Dark was coming out and managed to keep at it for a few years before the constant drain on my finances made the game an unviable option for me. I've been back several times (mostly Magic Online) and spent a few years with the Legend of the 5 Rings CCG. Ultimately, the constant need to keep spending all of my hard earned money to keep up with the constant outflow was just too much. But now I find Mage Wars and in all honesty I think that this is a far superior game in every aspect save that it hasn't been around as long and isn't as well known.

I was instantly drawn to the Warlock and all his in-your-face type of play (I played B/U or B/R in Magic and Shadowlands/Spider Clan in L5R) and have also been drawn to Malakai's Priest and the Warlord. Quite, frankly, I also want to try the Johktari Beastmaster, Forcemaster, Necromancer, Wizard ... you get the idea.

My work schedule means that I don't really get to bring my game to my local game store and play nearly as much as I'd like, so over the last few weeks I've been forcibly roping my friends into playing to various degrees of success but I know when I'm starting to overstep my boundaries when lo and behold I see about the answer to my prayers, OCTGN. My username there is the same as here, svvcDark, and I'd like to thank user Gizzu for being kind enough to walk me though the ropes of my first game with someone not in my game group.

My normal playing buddy plays Necromancer, and I find that as he gets more familiar with the game out games are getting much more difficult on me. Such is the way of things, I suppose, I guess I'll just have to get better myself.

Random fact about me: I've only broken a bone one time, but it was two bones in three different places when it happened. I don't recommend it.

I like in California, USA in the San Francisco Bay Area if there's anyone else close to me who would like to try to get together for a game some time.

Ok, I think I've gone on long enough. Thanks preemptively for being a friendly group.

Long live Mage Wars.

Welcome to Mage Wars! Warlock is my secondary Mage after Straywood Beast Master. You get a lot of mileage out of those fire spells if you're willing to just pour on the damage. Burn tokens are an awesome gift to give the other mage that just keep on giving.

Hiyas!

I'm located in Mountain View. I just picked up MW yesterday :) I am brand new to the game and looking forward to learning all the ins and outs of it.

I love gaming, my likes in games varies like Discworld, Omen:reign of war, Gosu, Summoner Wars, Heroclix, Kingsburg, etc.

I am a very casual gamer, i enjoy playing don't care about winning or losing. Just looking for fun casual people to play and learn with!

Welcome to the arena! It will be your final resting place...

(No seriously, it will. Mage wars is addictive. You will be playing it until you die lol)
