Tanglebrook: The Skaema - Shapeshifters!

Discuss and appreciate the Skaema, including Envoy Muto in this thread!

If you're wondering how to pronounce Skaema, that's skay-muh. ;)

I forsee the Skaema being my favorite tribe. I REALLY love the style and their connection to the dragons, and I really like how it looks like every tribe is important. <3

Funny you should mention this; I keep mentally pronouncing it as "skee-mah," but I have this thing where I prefer to pronounce words like "aerodynamic" as "ee-row-die-nam-ick." You can blame that on talking about the Final Fantasy series: whenever I pronounced the spell Aero as "ay-row," others would get it confused with, well, arrows! XD An alternate pronunciation was necessary to eliminate ambiguity, and "ee-row" seemed as fitting as any (even though it's the Latin pronunciation of a Greek term or something like that).

I think it's time I got into some rules mongering. There have been hybrid furs and multiple fur types in this game. Does shapeshifter only allow transformation into ONE species, i.e. Otter, lion, etc., or will we wind up seeing players shapeshifting their furres into rat-wolf-cephalopod-trilobite furres? Kind of a scary thought (though that brings forth the idea of a manticore or chimera or draconequus furre, which would each be comprised of many species anyway).

Shapeshift only handles one Furre type at a time. There are several really good reasons for this, but for now look at Handyman. What if you could change him directly from a Lion Shapeshifter into a Dragon Otter? That would sort of dampen the point of using him in conjunction with either Furre type, unless you went out of your way to use him with both.

Man, Barrier and Shield.

That's a good way to lock out an entire single-species deck, which seems to be what this set is all about. Crazy stuff :o

We have a bunch left to show off.
Bottomswell Banquet was awesomely cute, I thought, though.

If that was the preview art that I thought it was, then I'd have to agree. ^_^

Also Handyman, though that mostly because of Cai. XD
