As I previously mentioned, the Guardians CCG blog has 100 card designs based on many of the .sig cards. One of the things missing from the collection is a name.
I never named them because they were just homebrew cards that I was tossing off at the end of messages and I hadn't given it much thought? So what to name the new set?
Well, there are some Angels, which I always thought got a raw deal in the original game. This might be because Demons and Devils are considered cooler or because they had folks like Brom doing the artwork. (Brom did one Angel card: the Angel of Death. Kind of figures, doesn't it?)
On the other extreme, the stronghold is the First Circle of Hell, which gives more support to those same Demons and Devils.
This leads me to think that the name should have something to do with Inferno or Infernal. Moreover, Jackalwere used a delta as the symbol for the set. Delta is the letter "D", which is the first letter of Dante. Eerie co-incidence??
The set also introduces Elves, Dwarves and Gargoyles into Guardians, with a handful of cards each. These have little to do with the eternal struggle of Good v. Evil. On the other hand, not every card in Necropolis Park was a dinosaur nor a dead Egyptian.
So what to call it? Inferno? Dante's Peak? The Divine Expansion: so far North, it's Heavenly.
Of course, since they are .sig cards and the stronghold is Hell, we could call it ...
Nah, let's not go there.
