I picked the right day to look in YMTC for the first time in months, apparently. I gotta take a close look at this and see if it's something that would fit in the Expanded Multiverse... it's certainly the kind of ambitious project I think we should be promoting, and I'm digging the Iambic Heptameter. That's weird in all the right ways.

The Oliviad is back! Awesome!

I like True-Name Invocation far too much. It's incredibly janky, but that deck is too hilarious not to build.

Preferred Pronoun Set:
"What have you done with my brother, you twit?"
Desire's hot tongue was as sharp as her blade.
The latter pressed deeper down into Faith's neck,
As he, most unfettered, did calmly retort:
"So good now to see you, dear sister! My word!
How rude of me not to have offered you myrrh."
Desire, though thirsty, was far from impressed.
Did he mean to mock her by speaking his best?
"Don't slick that with me, you most worthless of slime!
No coward like you could be brother of mine.
I've said why I'm here. Now you say what you've done,
Or I swear by your laws you won't see the next sun."
But Faith only chuckled, his conviction secure:
Though she was far older, Desire could stir
Nothing up in his heart to let anger take hold,
And without that, she'd lose. So he kept his words cold:
"Without your brother here, my dear, I fear that that won't work.
His sickly scythe might slay me, 'haps, but never your dull dirk."
"I count on it!" Desire snapped. "The better yet to bleed you,
For pain enough to loose your words is all with which I need you."

"So good now to see you, dear sister! My word!

Chalice of Myrrh

Nothing up in his heart to let anger take hold,

Calculated Coldness

And without that, she'd lose. So he kept his words cold:

"Without your brother here, my dear, I fear that that won't work.

Death's Scythe
Artifact — Equipment (R)
