A Strange City | Session #5 | Liudolf’s Escape

A Strange City | Session #4 | Escape from the pit!

Hi all, For this post I'd like to try something different: break down the session in a more mechanical way, rather than a storytelling way as I usually do. Let me know what you think in the comments.

A Strange City | Session #2 | The Dog Biters

Custom MtG devlog #2: First lesson learned

So, turns out designing a Magic: The Gathering custom set is deep. Real deep. Deep af. Duh, I can hear you say. When I first boldly declared to my friends that I was going to design a set, I wasn't really aware of the grandeur of the task, or the foolishness of my words. I … Continue reading Custom MtG devlog #2: First lesson learned
