    A great many, to be honest. The chief of them all being my daughter and darling wife. Writing takes second place. There is almost nothing better than the smell of good prose in the morning.

    Halo 4

    HALO Reach was a fun game Breeze, not sure what you are talking about. But yes, HALO 4 seems awesome. I've been playing the Anniversary Edition HALO and if they use some of the graphics and textures that they used for that, then I am sure it will be one of the best looking shooters to date. Aside from that, Master Chief always gets my geek on.

    Magic: The Gathering Trading and Playing

    Kind of is a daunting task after all on TCGplayer. But, it is well worth it. I've never been able to count and sort all of my cards so having this is nice because I can search my collection online to see if I have anything. Very cool.

    Favourite Album Covers

    Painkiller is an awesome cover. Here are two that I think are better however: The simplicity of this one is part of what makes it epic: And this one takes the cake as THE BEST ALBUM COVER EVER.... A weasel? Nice touch.

    Magic: The Gathering Trading and Playing

    The rules are necessary Morte. My house games are to the letter, they just don't require anyone to have the latest cards. Bring whatever deck you like. Well, if anyone is close to Northeast Missouri or Northwest Illinois then you might be close enough to play with me. Other than that, I've taught some of my friends in the area how to play and a couple of them have really taken off with it and have decks that rival my own now. So that is one way to do it. Also, if you go to TCGplayer.com you can talk with people as well as view their entire collection (something I'm currently trying to finish....I wish I'd found this site back when I only had a few cards). But yes, my house is always open to gamers and friends. If you feel like making a road trip and hanging out for a couple days, let me know and we can work out the details. EDIT: To see my collection, http://store.tcgplayer.com/Collection.aspx?ID=18587 <----- Click! I have entered all of my M12 core set cards, but it will take me time before I get the rest (hundreds) of my cards added. Nevertheless, anyone from here who wants to trade should make an account there as well. It is fast and easy to enter your cards and trading is safe there. After you've done so, just let me know if you want to trade and I can make any of my cards available (the ones I'm willing to give up anyway :P ) Hope to be trading soon!

    Greetings :P

    Un0, Sofee....howdy. :P Freelancing has paid off for me. I've got some incredibly promising work happening at the moment. My name should be out there really soon. :) Glad to hear that you are doing well. And never mind the college, I never finished either. :P One day I suppose I will, just to have that piece of paper that says I did. Ah, the wilderness. What a fun place. Do any of you remember the Cabbage game? I would send everyone in the clan who showed up into the wild with nothing but cabbages and the person to bring back the best items would win. What fun! I miss a lot of things about RS, but I could never gain the amount of time necessary to stage a comeback toward that end.

    Are You Virgin

    One of these days Yuan I am going to get you drunk and learn all of your secrets. :P I don't believe that I need a piece of paper to prove that I want to spend the rest of my life with a person either. However, the tax break is awesome. :) Sex does not require both male and female reproductive organs. However, the implied 'rule' for a girl that determines whether or not she is a virgin depends on whether or not she has a 'maidenhead' or hymen. For a male it is whether or not he has engaged in vaginal intercourse. But of course, that is a social implication as well.

    Are You Virgin

    Always hitting me over the head with technicalities. As usual though, you are right. :P Aratreak! Goodness I forgot how much I miss that dude. And 123man with his kid and the sunglasses for an avvy. :P You haven't gotten or considered marriage have you Yuan? Come to think of it, I don't really know that much about you personallu.

    Splicer, nice. Never was a big fan of infect. After about a year of that the games would end to quickly. With New Phyrexia it became too easy to give out poison counters. My friends and I agreed to stop using it. Just no fun. Ahh, I need to build a red/black vampire deck myself. Traded for two Stormkirk Captains the other day. They are a nice start.

    A new player! How exciting. The first piece of advice is to choose what sort of player you are going to be. Tournament players are the most popular right now, only it is difficult to find a tournament (unless you live in a massive city) that will allow you to play with any cards that aren't part of either the current edition or one or more of its expansions. This gets quite expensive as you have to buy new cards several times a a year in order to stay current and competitive. Which is why I am the second option, a "house" or "table" player. There are still many exciting game modes to play in but you can play with cards from any year or edition. This can be more difficult however, as most people that play this way have a lot of experience at crafting excellent decks. Which brings us to deckbuilding. The first thing I can say about deckbuilding is that it is similar to writing a story. Only, instead of working with prose you are designing a library of unique cards to work together like a symphony orchestra to gain victory over the other players. If you can't tell the story in one sentence, then your deck is not focused enough. Example: I have a vampire deck that I would describe like this, "My vampire deck is based on speed, control, and gaining life." EVERY card in there is either cheap to play, can be used to control or destroy other creatures, or gains me life points to my player total. It is focused on those core concepts and only those. The second most important thing about deckbuilding is balance. There must be a good balance of small, weak cards, middle of the pack cards, and large, powerful cards. You don't want more than 2-6 cards that cost 6 mana or more and you don't want 20+ cards of 3 mana or less, that sort of thing. In a standard (EVERY one of my 12 decks has exactly 60 cards) 60 card deck this becomes even more important. The good news is, an epic deck doesn't take all that much cash. I will complete this post by showing images and prices of cards that can be made into a deck very easily. (Ebay is a great source for magic cards.) I will demonstrate a good deck build as a model for you to use in building your own. 1 Victory's Herald (You can buy a set of four for $2.62 shipping included) 2 Aegis Angels (You can buy a set of 4 for $3.19 shipping included) 4 Serra Angel (Negligible cost, less than above) 2 Angel of Mercy 2 Kabira Vindicator (same...in fact all remaining cards are either 99 cents for a lot of four or up to but not exceeding a dollar a piece, many of them you may have and many more can be found in booster packs which can be bought at 4 bucks or so) 4 Leonin Skyhunter 2 Gideon's Lawkeeper 1 Stonehorn Dignitary 2 Benalish Veteran 2 Kor Duelist Equipment 2 Swiftfoot Boot 1 Pennant Blade 2 Greatsword 1 Loxodon Warhammer Enchantments 2 Spirit Mantle 2 Arrest 2 Pacifism Instants/Sorceries 2 Landbind Ritual 2 Angelic Blessing 2 Holy Day 20 Plains All of that equals a 60 card custom White deck. Complete with damage prevention, blocker nullification, equipment, and of course angels. :P Realistically, that exact deck won't set you back much at all. But more importantly, if you do some homework and research the cards (you really didn't think I would do ALL of the research did you? :P ) you can see how a decent deck is put together. Being honest, this deck is basic. It will certainly work well in a game but as you collect cards you may find some more that fit in there better or perhaps change some of the numbers of some of the cards. This is not a battletested deck, so you never know! Anyway, I hope I was helpful! Also, let me know some of the cards you already have and I can try to help you if you can't get any of the above or if you can't use the example above to build your own with the cards you have.
