Post subject:  Razorborne Fills Out A Set He Concepted Eight Years Ago: Fleets Of Ossia

so a little while back, I found an old document on my computer detailing the groundwork for a tribal set I'd never completed. so I thought it'd be fun to complete it. so I'm gonna do that. complete it, that is. to be clear. I'm going to complete a set I began eight years ago. the only rule I'm instating is that any work I can find or remember from back then is unchangeable, set in stone.

the basic conceit, as anyone who knew razorborne eight years ago might guess, is obscure-type tribal. in fact, I went so overboard that I originally wanted to do 20 (!) different tribes. well, not 20 different tribes exactly. the plan was three-color races with two-color classes, so they intersected and overlapped quite a bit. while as I said above I can't change this number, I've decided to try to gradate it across rarities, so limited will mostly be about class benefits, while the race benefits will mostly be check-one lords, with the exception of rares.

another thing I'm doing, which I don't explicitly have to do based on previous work, but I know past-razorborne well enough to know he would've done this, is that the whole thing will be in cycles. this both feeds my love of symmetry and makes the whole process easier because I have to do less structuring. most of the cycles will be fairly loose, but every card you see in one race or tribe has a corresponding member in each other. there are a few exceptions: I have one five-color land at common, a 5 card cycle each at uncommon and rare, and 2 mythics that aren't part of a cycle. I also have a few things that aren't related to tribes that are just regular 5-card cycles (or in the case of some artifacts, just a collection of five cards at a given rarity.)

oh, and I'm also making a keyword for each race. my original plan was to do a returning keyword for each race, but too many of them were hard to find good fits for the flavors of the tribes. I may stick with a few returning ones, but the majority will be new. and I also intend to add in another, 11th keyword for a side flavor thing, but don't worry about that. obviously I'll try to make these keywords as simple as possible, but like eight-years-ago razorborne would've totally done this, so I pretty much have to.

I'll be introducing the races and their backgrounds, mechanics, and some example cards over the next couple weeks/as I make them. then I'll do the same for the classes. then I'll just start dumping random stuff to fill the extra gaps. hooray? hooray.

So I haven't paid attention to the story much of your set, but that's only because I'm too excited about the mechanics.

I'm pretty sure that any set you designed 8 years ago wasn't going to have any mythic.

You are missing a common savannah lions with mazeofithform :w: .

Grovetender (uncommon, white) replaced with Vinewalker Sophisticate (uncommon, green) due a misreading of my spreadsheets that led to the uncommon dryad lord being the wrong color. I think the Sophisticate works better anyway.

Okay so you have 11 new keywords? Now I don't feel as bad for wanting one for each of my tribes in my set, yay.
