THEMATIC CHALLENGE V19 04: FIRE AND ICE
On April 14th one of the most successful TV series of the recent years comes to an end and will air the final season. I always liked crossover cards or cards from other franchises as Star Trek CCG cards like Boba Fett or Darth Vader from the Inquest Magazine or from this previous thematic challange and now it is time to get Game of Thrones onboard, too.
Create a Star Trek CCG card based on the TV series Game of Thrones.


DEADLINE 30th April 2019


Sneak peak for May's challenge: The trial never ended.

Post Re: Thematic Challenge VI 04: Fire and Ice
Thank you for continuing to do these Pazuzu. Interesting challenge, especially given I've only seen something like 5 episodes of Game of Thrones and that was when it first started years ago... :shifty:

Also thanks for fixing the infiltration icon in my entry (Entry: F,) but unfortunately there's now a typo in the lore as included in the first post. Michael Williams should have Jean-Luc Picard in bold italics, as he's an infiltrator "impersonating" Jean-Luc Picard. :D If you could fix that please that would be great, thanks. Now fixed, thanks. :cheersL:

Now to get my thinking cap on and maybe do a little GOT research! :wink:

All the Best,

Mattgomery Scott.

Ugh. I've never seen or read Game of Thrones. (Vote C)

In honor of Hodor's repetitive speech, then:

[Inc] I Am Tosk
Lore: The Gamma Quadrant alien Tosk is the only member of his species known to visit the Alpha Quadrant. Although initial communication with Miles O'Brien was difficult, the Tosk learned quickly.
Text: Countdown [2]. Play on a personnel which is the only member of its species in a quadrant (for free if Tosk). It is attributes +4 and excluded from random selection. If killed or captured before countdown expires, score points. [15]

[S] The Wall

The galactic barrier was an energy field composed of negative energy surrounding the rim of the Milky Way Galaxy.
To get past requires: Astrophysics x2 + (Stellar Cartography x2 OR Computer Skill x2). Then place this dilemma (owner's choice) between this mission and an adjacent mission. Creates a gap with a span of 4. Ships stopping on the gap kill one personnel (random selection).
