Q:The aggressive looking grey skinned guys in red Tarkir art, do they have a name/creature type yet?
I want to say that they’re orc?
It’s not read, but it’s grey skinned.
Similarly, it seems to be orc. Orc or ogre, really.
Okay so I high pitched 21 Guns and…
I’M GOING TO Cry OMG
Phineas and Ferb: The Teen Years.
This is how I came to love this song.
…This should not work as well as it does.
Once again, we’re all gearing up to get our hands on some fresh cardboard with Khans of Tarkir. Prerelease weekend is always an exciting time, but let’s not forget some of the basic necessities for having a good prerelease:
✔ SLEEP: This is a tough one. If you’re like me, I always have trouble falling asleep before a big, exciting event. Nonetheless, sleep is necessary if you want to be alert and on your toes while playing Magic this weekend. (This is doubly important if you’ll be attending a midnight prerelease!)
✔ SNACKS: Food is good. One of the things I find most often brings players down during long prerelease events is hunger. No one likes to play Magic on an empty stomach. If your local shop doesn’t offer food or drinks, plan to bring some light snacks or even a meal to keep you nice and fed.
✔ EXTRA SLEEVES: This one is mostly for newer players, but even I’ve had times where I completely forgot to bring extra sleeves. Sleeves are important if you want to protect your new cards from wear and tear while shuffling during the prerelease. Your local shop will most likely be selling sleeves if you don’t have any.
✔ DICE/COUNTERS: It’s always a good idea to bring extra dice, counters and tokens for keeping track of all the crazy shenanigans that might transpire during a match. Most players will usually be nice enough to let you borrow dice or counters if you simply don’t have any. But don’t be afraid to ask!
✔ EXTRA DECKS: A lot of players forget this one, but you’d be surprised how much time there might be to kill while waiting for a prerelease to start or round to end. Many players like to get to events early, so it’s a good idea to have just-for-fun decks on hand to practice with friends while waiting. For those looking to trade, bringing your trade binder might be a good idea as well.
Of course, the most important thing to bring to any Magic event is your FRIENDLINESS. We are all called to be top-notch ambassadors to this wonderful game we love. Prerelease events are often the first exposure new players ever have to the game and the community. Let’s make sure they come back for more.
p.s.: *GAMER FUNK IS NOT ACCEPTABLE* The only thing anyone should be smelling at a prerelease is the smell of freshly-opened booster packs.
Genghis Khan had a government with a code name “yassa” that had a standard of equality towards everybody. He prohibited stealing, defection of soldiers, wife stealing, and other rules which made everything safer. He gave full protection to everybody and had no favorites with anybody. The Mongol Empire did not emphasize the importance of ethnicity and race in the administrative realm, instead, He believed that appointments and responsibilities should be given by talent and skills not by wealth.
Mongols were highly tolerant of most religions, and typically sponsored several at the same time. At the time of Genghis Khan in the 13th century, virtually every religion had found converts, from Buddhism to Christianity and Islam. To avoid strife, Genghis Khan set up an institution that ensured complete religious freedom, though he himself was a shamanist. Under his administration, all religious leaders were exempt from taxation, and from public service. Mongol emperors were known for organizing competitions of religious debates among clerics, and these would draw large audiences.
- Me: *heals self*
- Enemy: *heals self*
- Me: Whoa. Whoa.
- Me: What do you think you're doing?
- Me: I just took off half your health bar, and then you go and do that?
- Me: Yeah, I KNOW I just healed myself.
- Me: It's different when I do it.
Every time this post comes around, I have to explain this.
Watch Dennou Coil, the most underrated anime pretty much ever.
- Yes, this is the standard of animation throughout the series.
- AND THIS IS A FILLER EPISODE.
- It’s basically about kids with what’s essentially Google Glass: The Game. The whole world is affected by this game. Traffic lights, school, anything.
- It’s good in the beginning and gets really, really good by the end.
- Shows the vulnerabilities of children.
- Well-written children in general. They fall under some tropes but they don’t suffer from the usual fallacies of writing children into series.
- And yeah, the filler episodes are really good. The whole series is worth watching.
Reblogging as a reminder to myself
wish this show was longer.
PLEASE WATCH DENNOU COIL IT’S REALLY COOL!!!!!
