More Awesome Custom Hearthstone Cards

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Custom Hearthstone post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome creations. Now, let’s have ourselves a brawl!

  • Fuse Elements by Nobody Type: Mage Neutral Spell Mana Cost: 2 Appearance: An awesome fusion of  multicolored spells. Effect: Discover two spells that Cost (5) or less. Merge them into one.

I absolutely adore the mechanic of this card. Combining two Mage Spells into one ultra-powerful board clear seems like a ton of fun. You also literally have an almost numerous amount of combinations that you could make.

  • Sharknado by CheeseEatingEtc Type: Hunter Epic Spell Mana Cost 6 Appearance: A tornado of sharks. Effect: Deal 2 damage to all minions. Overkill: Summon a 4/4 Shark.

Presenting Blast Wave, BUT WITH SHARKS!!! Yes, this fantastic card creator has made a Blast Wave for the Hunter class. I absolutely love the design of this card, and the overkill effect fits quite nicely into the game.

Asher’s Art Gallery (D&D Edition)

Hello fellow art lovers, and welcome to a very special art post! I have recently really gotten into Dungeons and Dragons. I love the great storytelling and the wide array of amazing classes. The monsters should also be noted, and the artwork is just fantastic. This gallery will be covering some of the most eye-catching characters. Luckily, there’s a monster manual that covers all of the monsters in the game, and I will be using it as reference. Now, let’s go on a fantastic journey!

  • Strige: Type: Beast Affiliation: Unaligned Attack: Blood drain: Deals 1d4+3 piercing damage and attaches to the target. When attached, the beast drains 1d4+3 hit points. Languages: None  Appearance: A horrific amalgamation of a huge bat and a mosquito. It feeds on the blood of the living, like mosquitoes do in real life. A small pack of them can be easily dealt with, however, in large numbers, they can be quite formidable. As if mosquitoes weren’t threatening enough (Shudders).

  • Remorhaz: Type: Huge monstrosity Affiliation: Unaligned Immune to cold and fire.  Attacks: Heated Body: Any character that touches this monster, or uses a melee attack within 5 feet, will take 10 (3d6) fire damage. Bite: Does 40 (6d10+7)piercing damage plus 10 (3d6) fire damage. Swallow: The creature makes an attack against its grappled prey and swallows it. When swallowed, the prey is restrained and blinded and also takes 21 (6d6) acid damage at the start of each of the Remorhaz’s turns. Appearance: A fearsome, multi-legged creature with a blue body, large wings, and sharp fangs.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 189

Starlight Brigade by TWRP (feat. Dan Avidan) from the album “Together Through Time” May 18th, 2018 Music Video Released May 23rd, 2019 Genres: Synthwave, Rock

This track is absolutely incredible, and the music video that accompanies it is mind-blowing. TWRP aka Tupper Ware Remix Party are a Canadian Synthwave band that usually play with Ninja Sex Party. They play in full costume, and their real names remain anonymous. This particular piece is one of the band’s best works, and Daniel Sexbang (The singer of Ninja Sex Party) vocals carry the piece into epic territory. It tells the story of a young boy and his trials and tribulations with a ragtag group of space hunters called the Starlight Brigade. The video is shot like a wonderful homage to Daft Punk’s Interstella   5555 (An anime-inspired movie based on Daft Punk’s album, Discovery), and it is absolutely breathtaking. The video actually played on Toonami, and people still with shower it with praise today. The instruments are bass heavy and otherworldly, and this really makes this piece memorable. They also add vocoders halfway through which works wonders to the song. What else can I say? This song is amazing, and I really would love to hear your opinions on it in the comments’ section below.

Hearthstone Tribes: Mech Edition

Hello fellow tavern dwellers, and welcome to a new Hearthstone post! Tribes are a huge thing in the game that causes various cards to have awesome effects with one another. They range from Dragons to Murlocs, and many decks are built around specific tribes. One of my favorites is the Mech tribe. Mechs have been a part of the game from the very beginning, and with the new Magnetic skill, they are a major force to be reckoned with. Below is a list of some of my favorite Mechs, and some awesome synergies with other cards. Now, let’s have ourselves a good old brawl!

  • SN1P-SN4P Tribe: Mech Mana Cost: 3 Attack: 2 Health: 3 Type: Legendary Neutral Minion Appearance: A giant, blue robot crab with a mounted gun on its head. Expansion: The Boomsday Project Effect: Magnetic, Echo, Deathrattle: Summon two 1/1 Microbots. 

This card was released recently for free to new players, and it’s one of the best Mechs in the game. Being one of the first Legendaries to have Echo and Magnetic, the amount of play is incredible. It can magnetize to some insanely powerful creatures, creating an unstoppable behemoth of epic proportions.

  • Blightnozzle Crawler Tribe: Mech Mana Cost: 4 Type: Rare Rogue Minion Appearance: A poisonous machine with multiple legs and syringes. Attack: 2 Health: 4 Effect: Deathrattle: Summon a 1/1 Ooze with Poisonous and Rush. Expansion: The Boomsday Project 

Another absolutely fantastic card that makes the Rogue class even more fun. The ability to summon a minion that can kill anything is extremely unique, and this card was a staple for Deathrattle Rogue decks. You can also magnetize this to other mechs to leave the opponent in for a nasty surprise.

Asher’s Art Gallery (Every Other Monday)

Hello fellow Art Lovers! It’s Monday, and my Gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some amazing works. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!

  • Titian by Jean-Michel Basquiat  From The Daros Suite of 32 Drawings 1982-83 Acrylic, oil paintstick, pastel, charcoal, and pencil on paper.

This is another wonderful work by “Master Surrealist” Basquiat.  It’s another addition to the Daros Suite, and my god, it’s a good one! This particular piece has a lot of anatomical designs. We see the bone structure of a leg, as well as various green teeth. There’s also many repeated words, and one of Basquiat’s signature “heads”. Lastly, there’s for some reason, a burger situated in the middle of the painting. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

  • Armored Train by Gino Severini 1915 Oil on Canvas 

This is an absolutely awesome Futurist piece by “Italian Painter”, Severini. The work has a very industrial feel, and definitely looks like it takes place in the future. The train is made with a very unique sheet of metal and covered with a multicolored background. The defense is comprised of multiple guards armed with high powered rifles. In conclusion this is an absolute treat of a painting that will be loved by many steampunk fans.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 185

El Dorado (SkyWorld) by Two Steps From Hell from the album: “Skyworld” Released: October 25th, 2012 Genres: Epic, Orchestral, Film, Neo-classical

It’s been a very long time since my last Jukebox, but I’m back and ready for action! This particular piece by the insanely talented music group, Two Steps From Hell, will blow your socks off! I’ve loved this group for many years, and never get tired of listening to their epic music. This song starts out with some intense violins and other string instruments. The entire piece has a very Middle Eastern feel to it, and you can imagine hearing it in some lavish party. The strings go on until about the 90 second mark, and then the drop comes in, and we are hit with a bazooka blast of raw musical power. A chorus of horns starts up, and thunderous drums annunciate the end of each note. Upon hearing this for this first time, my entire body became covered in goosebumps and tears of pure jubilation cascaded down my face. Next, a beautiful operatic voice fills the air and carries the piece till its eventual end. I would love to hear what you guys think of the piece in the comments’ section below. Also, I’m thinking of starting up a new Jukebox for epic orchestral music, any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the day.

Fighting Game Tropes

Hello fellow fighting game enthusiasts! It’s time for us to take a look at some common tropes within our favorite fighters. Now, let’s battle!

  • SNK Boss: Every fighting game fan has dealt with this trope in some way or another. It deals with the bosses in fighting games that aren’t just difficult to beat, but seem to be programmed to be as cheap as possible. Versions of this include; extremely overpowered offense, infinite super meter, neigh invulnerability, or extreme projectile spamming. The final bosses in the King of Fighters franchise regularly are considered as this. In KOF ’99, the final boss Krizalid, has a disgustingly powerful combo that can take away 90% of your health bar! In Street Fighter 3rd Strike, we have the thong-wearing god of annoyance, Gill. Gill can literally recover his HP to full, and dishes out massive damage with his projectiles. Lastly, we have Yami (The final boss in Okami) as the end boss of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. He has 3 different forms, each of which is more annoying then the last. His first form has him stealing your power meter and firing homing missiles. His second form has amazing range, and his third form is pure hell. His supers are the most damaging, and he spams his attacks like crazy.

  • Lethal Joke Character: Another extremely common trope in fighting games. It deals with the presumably pathetic characters in games that have hidden potential. Dan Hibiki of the Street Fighter franchise fits this mold to a T. His projectile is absolutely useless, and he doesn’t have a lot of range. Then, as the games progressed, he became a lot more useable, with highly experienced players using him for mind games. The Super Smash Bros series has the pink balloon Pokemon, Jigglypuff. Her moves are very weak, and she can get KO’ed very easily. There’s one thing however, that makes her dangerously unpredictable. Her move, “rest”, can be one of the most powerful moves in the series, if you manage to connect with it. Lastly, there’s Shingo Yabuki from King of Fighters’ 97. His move set is weaker versions of Kyo’s techniques. Then, you find out that he has the highest chance of scoring a critical hit in the game! This means that his attacks tend to hurt a lot more, albeit, randomly.

  • (Sorry if this sounds perverted) Jiggle Physics: A rather scandalous, but highly used fighting game trope. This occurs with a body bounces in place or reacts to physical stimuli. This often applies to the breasts of female fighters, making them highly popular among male gamers. King of Fighters has one of the original versions of this with Mai Shiranui’s “orbs”. Mai is a gorgeous kunoichi with a rather large breasts. They’re often seen bouncing in her idle stance. She was modeled after Fumie Hosokawa, the Japanese porn star with the largest breasts. Next, we have the unsettling Rufus from Street Fighter IV. He’s extremely fat, and his body jiggles in a very disturbing manner. Lastly, we have Xianghua from the Soul Caliber series. The physics not only appear on her breasts, but her butt as well!
