Meanwhile, In Taiwan

Taiwan has banned Laevateinn from general local store events. Competitive RL events will not be using this ban.

More like Leave-ateinn, amirite?

New Legend Precipice

On Wednesday, the starter decks for the next cluster were revealed. They are being called the New Legend Precipice, however during the Q&A Jordan stated this was not the name of the next cluster.

Check out the deck description below.

Long ago when the world was young, a mysterious castle appeared in the light of the full moon. Rumors quickly spread across the land that any who ventured beyond its gates never returned.

Its master bade the extraordinary people of this world to meet her for a feast. The king of the mountain horde, the dragonoid champion, the princess of the merfolk, and the magical prodigy. From opposite corners of the world, these four have assembled at the dark castle’s gate.

Will you join them and venture into the castle’s dark depths to uncover its mysteries?
