Dark Ascension (DKA) Draft #1

February 29, 2012 Leave a comment

Finished my first draft with DKA last night (DDI however for lack of Innistrad boosters), and boss deck is boss. Came second in my pod because the guy with the equal W/L had better resistance, which someday I will understand.

My deck was U/B Zombies.

‘A funny thing happened on the garden path…’ Part 7

February 22, 2012 1 comment

Author’s Note: These are taking a lot longer then I thought they would. Or maybe it’s all the Starcraft 2. And before you ask, I have no idea why the size of the spacing betweens lines is different.


Four hundred and twenty-eight days before Day 0

After leaving the Police Station, James led me around Primus for a length of time equal to or greater than the time anyone would need to not have any idea where we were going. And in no less than thirty minutes, I found myself in a part of the city surrounded by apartment buildings. It was less that I had no idea this was here and more that I never needed to know these were here; James and I rented in a more up-town district in line with our income.

“This is the one.” James said, matching his GPS on his watch with the building name printed down the side. Read more…

Author’s Notes: I dislike this chapter, which is partly why it took so long to arrive.

“It’s underground, with one narrow entrance and big enough to park the skimmer inside if you blew a bigger door. What more did you want?”

Two hundred and sixty-three days after Day 0


Captain Messner sat at his desk on the bridge of the Archimedes, lead frigate of the 22nd Intraplanetary Defense Force, like he had done every day for the last four-hundred-something days. It was one of those days he wished he could have stayed in his room, undisturbed and in bed, maybe with something good to read. He’d always been meaning to finish the e-book his wife had sent him for New Years.

Fourteen days after Day 0

James had been making plans while I was away. In a week and half’s time I had mapped maybe 20% of the surface of the planet from low orbit in the skimmer, which was boring work but at least the skimmer had spacevision, and James wasn’t here to yell spoilers out. That being said it was lonely work and I often found it difficult to sleep when the wind picked up, despite the atmospheric resistance the skimmer provided. Comfort had clearly not being intended in its design. Read more…
