Hello all, and welcome back to Friday, and with it comes another question. But first, I want to remind you that I'm holding an Office Hours live stream tomorrow at 9 AM Pacific. You can join me to talk about 1E, ask questions, chat with other viewers, and more. It should be a fun hour and give us all something to do in times of trouble.
Today's question is about your favorite story - but one that didn't land right for you in the world of First Edition.
What card story needs a "do-over"?
This question is inspired by a discussion on The Dojo, a Discord discussion group. In the First Edition channel over there, a user - @Tosk - was unhappy with the story on the card "We Are the Metrons". I'm paraphrasing his argument, so forgive me @Tosk if I misrepresent you, but he felt that the card, while mechanically fine, had nothing to do with the story of the card. That got me thinking about other cards that had stories on them that felt off, or cards with cool stories that ended up being mechanically flat.
So that's the inspiration for this week's question: what card's story just doesn't work for you? Which ones would you like to see redone or mixed up in the future? Your answers can and should be personal, as all of us have different tastes. And this isn't meant to be an exercise attacking the work of our Art and Creative teams, because I think we can all agree they do fantastic work. But nobody is going to like every decision made, and that's the space I want to explore - I want to find what cards, in your minds, needed a different story. Or, which stories deserve some better cards.
Have a great weekend! I hope to see you for Office Hours tomorrow. Then, on Monday, July 6th, there will be a printable card update, new promos, and the monthly balance changes. Beyond that, there are more amazing things that I can't wait to share with you.
