It is both satisfying and appropriate that my final article of 2017, published in the final days of this year, is the conclusion of the Tour de Cryx. I did it! There were a lot of times along the way that I wasn’t sure, because life got in the way, but at the end, I was able to clear enough time to make sure that I was able to make it all the way to the end. So, here we are, the final Caster, the final list, and the final article, of the Tour de Cryx: Skarre 1.
While I was busy writing all the articles for Asphyxious 3, I was also playing games, and the Community decided that I was going to have to save Skarre 1 until the end of the tour, so I was stuck playing Asphyxious 2, the original Lich Lord, first. What was I possibly going to do with this paupers caster?
I am burning through casters, here at the end of the tour! Its a sprint to the finish, and that means that I’ll be writing more of these, I do believe, than one a week. I wrote the first two on Gaspy 3 last week: The overview and the midpoint and now I’m putting fingers to keyboard to get the final one out. I went through a bit of a metamorphosis through my time playing, and I got two games in with my final incarnation.
Normally, I do my midpoint review after having two games with the caster, trying to take stock of the way that they play and make some changes to how they operate. This time, though, I was at a tournament, and got in three games in a row, so we’ll do the midpoint there.
Unfortunately, the holidays and my recent illness have left me playing more than I’ve been writing, which means that I’m writing this post way after real time, which is a disappointment. I really enjoy exploring the casters in writing before giving them a shot on the table. I’ll try to be as true to thoughts as I can as I make my way through how I played Asphyxious 3.
