All Right Lads and Lassies, it's like to get the 'ween on!

So for all you wondering "Why should I make a costume or carve a pumpkin?" I'm going to lay down the incentives!

Our First place winner will get 1000 GRAN and 20 Point cards (Oh Snap!)

Our Second Place winner will get 500 GRAN and 10 Point cards (bombdiggity)

Everyone who participates will get 5 point cards.

The best costumes will join into the seasonal cards for Halloween. Remember, The GM's will once again toss all dignity and cosplay for you enjoy/amusement regardless of the number of entries. We really hope everyone enjoys this because we certainly did last year.

CotF - Heierrat Army Results

(For the period of 7/2/09 - 7/15/09)

Apologies once again for the tardiness of this particular judgment. Harking back to two months ago, there was a Challenge of the Fortnight of a commonly used, but not always to its full potential, card named Heierrat Army. Due to the limited number of entries, there are only three runners-up instead of the usual five. But now, without further ado, is the final verdict.

(For the period of 9/10/09 - 9/23/09)

I can't seem to keep up with these fortnights these days, and while there are still a few Challenges of the Fortnight to be judged, rest assured that they shall be. In fact, one or two already have been, so keep an eye out for the results posts in the coming week or so. But enough about the past. It's time to look toward to the future and move into darker territory with a Lawtia Challenge of the Fortnight. For the next fourteen days, let your partner of the night be the Elder Druid.

We're Back from PAX and Rankings

The crew of the S.S. Alteil have made it back from the farthest reaches of space. We've traveled all the way to the Penny Arcade Galaxy to witness their native gaming holiday in all of it's glory. It was great except for the fact that King Edgar Figaro didn't get to go. I had to stay at base and man the defenses. And who the hell wants to do that? No one!, that's who. Always take the mission to deliver cargo and go traveling fellow Iczers no matter how boring it seems, that's the lesson today. That and... rankings!

As always, anyone who fought in the arena at least once this week will receive 10 gran. Listed below are your top 5 ranked Iczers, top 3 guilds, guilds that have become official, and guilds that have leveled.


  1. Mavel
  2. cervelo
  3. yu-yangli
  4. Sethiel
  5. luckysvn777


  1. Royal Flush 
  2. Order of the Black Knights
  3. SRX Team


  1. Unlimited Blade Works
  2. Requiem of Phantoms
  3. Flawless Victory

Unfortunately for us, the various players who were planning to drop by our booth at PAX to help out couldn't make it. So, we have an extra badge, which is cool because the show is sold out so there's no other way to get in.  If you happen to be in the Seattle area and 18 yrs or older and know enough to be able teach people how to play Alteil, then come help out at our booth and we'll get you into the show.
