We wanted the Energy Blade to be conceptually very different from the Excalibur item in volume 1, so we made it this ridiculous scimitar made out of crystallized fire. The Force Field was really difficult, we had a hard time coming up with a concise visualization which is why we initially removed it from volume 1 - it was originally just a medallion that blocked all attacks and it was really unfun. Now that it’s an umbrella it’s much easier to visualize its inherent limitations and hopefully it’ll work way better in playtests!
check out the finished Junkyard card for Story War Volume 2! I drew this live on livestream over the last five hours! it was a good time.
miss out on the drawcast? no problem! it isn’t over. not even kind of. i’m gonna be doing a second battlefield start to finish right now!—
