So, a day late and a dollar short they say. I dunno about the dollar short bit but I am a day late. Actually, as I really wanted to post these saturday so you could have them to look over on Cupids big day. 2 days late. I however failed. Do forgive me. I'm lenient on all of you with dead lines, so hopefully you want hold it against me. I'd love to blame Edgar some how on this one but no dice. :P

Anyway, without further adeu I present our top 3 winners! There may have been some entries that had a smidgen more "artistic merit", but these are the three that I felt most represented the valentines day cards of my youth. Simple art, terribly delicious puns!

We out celebrating Presidents' Day. It's nice when your land your first REAL job. One without a name tag. One with an office Christmas Party where wild antics are bound to happen. One that gets you vacation days on holidays that you never knew existed.

Enjoy the rankings, we're gonna mack on some cupcakes, the Magnolia kind.

Just what the title says.  Alteil has a TV Tropes Page thanks to long time Iczer Grain.  I figured this would be a good way to get some of the story down in an organized fashion, so take a look. I'll be updating it probably more often then I should... Also, feel free to contribute.

What's Errata With You?

Our nicely laid out Errata Page has been updated with all the recent changes and updates. Use it for reference, use it for nostalgia, just don't use it on a ham and cheese sandwich. That does NOT taste good.


Just not on a sandwich. Dear God do not put it on a sandwich!

Arakis' Quest Reminder
Written by Edgar Figaro   
Friday, 12 February 2010 15:27

This is a reminder that the submission period for the current Arakis' Quest ends this Monday, the 15th, at noon EST. Please be sure to submit your entries to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by that time. Also, I need to notify everyone of something regarding the errata that went into effect today. If you entered this Quest prior to 2/12 and used any cards that were affected by the errata, you may resubmit, but be sure to do so before the deadline. There will be no extension. Any errata-affected entries which are not resubmitted by the deadline will be retested, if it's deemed necessary, using the post-errata version of the Alteil card set.

The Ninja that Erratas in the Night

So, at maintenance, the FILE menu resets and reloads the data.  Meaning, I have to do the errata before then (6 AM EST) for it to show up tomorrow morning... Yeah, so it's only 2:40 AM EST but I'm exhausted and I've had a crazy day. So, errata's happening now. It will instantly take effect in the actual game, but the card File won't register the changes until tomorrow.  The Card List on the web site should be fine (except for Sumer being a 5*... I guess she'll just have to be a surprise).


-Why did you sever the Fencer Sea Serpent combo completely? Why not just make it less efficient? In testing, after decreasing the efficiency of the combo, we found it was better just to replace Fencer in the deck with something else.  And the "Still combos but less efficiently" skills were unnecessarily complicated, so why include unnecessarily complicated skills just to preserve a combo no one will use anyway?  Now Fencer can go play with Wizard Kingdom, and Sea Serpent can go play with Frog. Everyone  (with AGI 3 or lower) goes home happy.

The Valentine's Day seasonal art is up! Four cards, one from each sphere, have been switched to alternate, Valentine's Day themed artwork.  You don't have to do anything special, just log in as normal and check your Card File to see the new art.

Also, we've added CHOCOLATES to the Avatar shop during the seasonal art event!
