Last week, we talked about giving old cards some love; this week, I'd like to talk about love in the form of romantic partners. Specifically, I'd like to talk about making some more dual personnel that represent couples. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's the relevant quote from the rulebook:
Romantic Partners wrote:A personnel is the romantic partner of another personnel if the lore on either card both names the other (see named in lore sidebar) and states that they are or were "romantically involved". For example, Pel and Quark are romantic partners of one another, but Pel and Deputy Quark are not. The following terms (even if preceded by "ex-") are considered equivalent to the phrase "romantically involved": "husband", "wife", "mate", "married", "wedded", "bride", "imzadi", "mistress", "widow", "divorced". A personnel and their romantic partner are collectively called a couple.Which couples would you like to see appear on future dual personnel cards?
The most recent version of what I'm talking about is Worf and Jadzia from last year's Equilibrium, but they are hardly the only example. The Gift gave us Culluh and Seska, and Sergey and Helena were created in the very first virtual expansion, Life From Lifelessness. One thing that makes these dual personnel couples is that they provide a single card that can power Holoprogram: Cafe des Artistes, which is a nice drawing engine.
Who else would benefit from having a couple dual personnel card? Which decks need a better way to use the love cafe? Are you desperate for a version of Beverly and Picard that are romantically involved? Or is there an odd-ball couple you need to see in the game? Whatever the reasons, which couples would you like to see appear on a future dual personnel card?
Have you gotten your holiday gift shopping yet? I haven't, and it's really stressing me out. But hopefully I'll be able to knock some of that stuff out this weekend, including my gift for my Secret Santa recipient. In any case, I hope you have a great weekend as we get closer to the holiday season.
