Old School 93/94 on a Budget ($40 USD) Deck Techs

In last month’s article, I skimmed the surface of what most people assume is the primary barrier to entry: monetary co$t.  In an effort to disprove that assumption, I settled on building two Old School 93/94 “precons” with a budget of $40 USD each.  Sure, you can build cheaper decks, but I wanted to build decks that would leave you with a stack of useful cards afterwards.

It’s a new month, and we have a new month’s Adventure Seeds! At a reader’s request I decided to give sci-fi a spin, specifically adventures one could find in a futuristic city or metropolis. Fantasy is definitely more of my specialty, so this was a fun challenge and a good nudge for me to maybe dust off that copy of Starfinder I have on the shelf and give it a go!

The challenges here were that, being in such a fantasy mindset, the limitations of complications of life in the future escaped me. I know what is possible in a medieval setting (which, accompanied by MAGIC!, makes for easy parameters) but the seemingly more complicated world of sci-fi through me for a hyperloop. I’m definitely going to crack open a sci-fi novel or two and refresh myself on some great aspects of the genre!

For this DM Panic, I got an unexpected source of inspiration while watching some cartoons. Here are four characters whose roles I summarize as a ruler, the right hand, an animal companion, and a wizard. These characters are fluid enough to fit in nearly any setting, and any of them can be the villain of a last minute plot. I’ve also included some plot suggestions at the end of the article if you need help coming up with ideas. Read More
