I tend to like a few magical stand-ins, moreso than whole-cloth magic that you tend to see in D&D-type settings. I probably would have leaned into it a bit more had I not needed to speed toward the ending. Similarly, I would have explored more of the characters and setting (not that it wasn't a glorified Monster Hunter story), but I just pushed as fast as I could toward the ending, so a lot got left on the cutting room floor, like dialogue, for example.

Primal Beyond
Phyrexian Hulk
Creature Bond
Waxing Moon

I have some stuff going on tomorrow, so I may not be able to post mine for this week then, so I'll just do it now, with flagrant disregard for the title of the thread.

Enjoy!

Primal Beyond

I wish I'd paid attention to this, because Creature Bond is one of those cards that always reminds me of Old Magic. Maybe I'll cook something up...

It seems like a card that would have been in that Microprose Magic game from the 90s.

In other words, I agree!

Oops, I guess I forgot since I've been doing things today:

Ghazbán Ogre (Fifth edition version)
Seer's Sundial
Mardu Shadowspear (game day full art version)
Vela the Night-Clad



Side note: I don't know if I'll be writing for these partly because I've been working on Callia again and partly because I've been busy prepping for a vacation.

Thanks! I was happy with this one. When I first read that card, my immediate thought was "That's possibly the silliest fortune-telling device I've ever heard of." So, here, I got to explore that reaction...

:D

Thanks for reading!

I'll be travelling for the next few days, so I will unfortunately be missing this week's prompt. See you all next week!

Work got cancelled today, and I haven't written anything in far too long. Don't have access to my computer with any of the stories I have been working on, so I'm just going to write something right here, on my phone, in a single session. We'll see how it goes.

@Aaarrrgh: Nice slice of life in Lovecraftian Innistrad. I like it. I think it might benefit from being expanded on a bit to draw out some of the tension, but for a short piece written on your phone, excellent!

Thanks for posting, Aaarrrgh! Always good to see you around.

I felt like writing, and decided to do something off of an old prompt in the thread.

Creature Bond

@Aaarrrgh: Valan's story captures exactly the tone of Shadows, and I wish I had brought it to read around a campfire. Well done. Creature Bond is more amusing, but I love the twist.
