You have encountered the Trains Deck which lunges at you with railway cards!

The Trains Deck's Hitpoints (Level 10): 54
YOUR Hitpoints: 937

You draw a credit card from your rather empty wallet, and add it to your hand.



The bottom notes in your wallet vanish.

Your Clan's Aura strengthens you!
The Trains Deck tries to hit you but you RIPOSTE for 1499 points of damage!
Thanks to your Adrenaline Rush, your attacks are more powerful!
Your Plasma Gun spits gobbits of superheated gas at your opponent!

You execute a power move!!!
You hit The Trains Deck for 2170 points of damage!
Your Clan Aura allows you to absorb 127 of the damage you dealt to the Trains Deck!

End of round:
The Trains Deck's Hitpoints (Level 10): DEFEATED
YOUR Hitpoints: 1064

The whistle shrieks, the brakes squeal ... and the thundering black iron locomotive eventually comes to a stop. The Conductor leans out through the puffing clouds of steam. "All aboard!"

You have bought Trains Decks!


76 shiny Internet Points are dispensed from the nearest router!
You receive
23 total experience!

So it's 2014. Some of you may be wondering what's been happening with that last deck of cards, the one that's going to be a collection of wonderful art miniatures from many Island artists.

There's been progress. A little. I diverted my attention late last year to get the Trains deck done in time for holiday giving, which rather stalled the Art Deck. Even so, we do have five more cards. Here is a look at the current status:

Completed Cards in the Art Deck as of 2014-01-27

Thank-you to Marlybaa for the Ration Pack, and to Kew for The Magpie! I've been plugging away, too, adding Invisisuit, Stonehenge, and ChainsawChuks. The total now adds up to 35 cards finished, out of 72.

However. We need more art! And artists! So I'm putting up a MoTD, and also asking here. If you've already promised some art, then (poke, poke) what are you waiting for? And if you'd like to get involved, or if you know someone who'd like to but is being shy... contact me!

*sheepish shuffle*

The Baa will finish her art soon!

I actually plan to spend this week knocking some real life assignments back and getting a few of the cards done sooner rather than later. It's not like I'm sketching in the middle of class or anything...

I'm really looking forwards to seeing the art everyone else is gonna do.

It's been a while, so here's an update on where the Art Deck now stands: http://countsessine.deviantart.com/art/Display-2014-09-06-480666900

There are six opportunities now where just one completed image will win a rank BINGO (all five of a rank completed) -- and both Diamonds and Hearts are a mere four cards away from the higher-level suit BINGO (all cards of a suit completed)!

Oi! Come on you bloody artsy fartsy types!

If you claimed a card GET IT DONE!

There's only a handful left unclaimed so pull your fingers out from wherever they're stuck and lend a hand!

I WANT THIS DECK.

Please?


It's not an optical illusion. It just looks like one.

I would really like this deck to be finished in time for people to be able to add it to their Christmas wish lists. THIS year!

It's been two months. About six weeks ago I did a quick reality check and realized that, while, yes, the Art deck had made considerable progress, there was no way it could be ready in time for holiday wish lists. Too big a project, too many different people involved.

The Trains deck, however... that was just up to me. It looked doable.

Turned out, it was. There will be an announcement shortly...

Mr. Green

That was in 2013. Oops!

I am a terrible art director because I am no good at browbeating artists, especially when many of our fine artists need to rely on commissions and I'm asking them to do this for free, for the Island. But we've all been plugging away. Every little bit helped, and the end is now in sight! Would you believe... ready for holiday wish lists in 2015?

I now have art for all but four of the cards. This deck is going to be, no other word for it, awesome.

Look here! http://countsessine.deviantart.com/art/Display-2015-06-26-542214052
