Mystic Skies

For those who don't know, Mike Hutchinson (of Gaslands and Billion Suns fame) has been contributing to a new periodical called Blaster. The second issue includes a complete new ruleset called Mystic Skies, which involves wizards zipping around on flying carpets, summoning minions and blasting each other.

Looks like fun. It uses Gaslands templates for movement and ranges and the combat system's nice and straightforward. Looks like it could be nice and chaotic.

All you need is a suitably mobile wizard (it doesn't have to be a flying carpet), a tower for your opponent to attack, and a selection of minions and monsters to summon.

Any interest?

Brilliant! I built a few wizards on carpets a while ago so definitely interested.

Tom, as discussed here's a list of what you need for a game.

- Wizard
- Wizard's tower, minimum footprint of 3"X3"
- A handful of D6s
- Some minions (see below)
- Some wandering monsters (likewise)
- Some way to mark damage on your minions and monsters (tokens, different coloured dice, whatever)

I'll provide the tokens, spell cards, Gaslands templates and anything else game specific.

The number of minions depends on how many you're likely to summon during the game, it can be several per turn if you want. Minions come in the following types, it should be as easy as possible to tell the difference between them.
- Fighter
- Archer
- Engineer
- Elemental (max 1 per player)

Wandering monsters have the following types and numbers. Note that the maximums are for both players combined, so you probably won't need to full amount.
- Monstrous Beast (max of 2 total)
- Champion (max of 2 total)
- Warrior (max of 6 total)
- Bowman (max of 10 total)
- Beast (max of 10 total)

Thanks, I built the wizards tower yesterday so just need to finish up on the minions and should be fine.
