Characters from the Blood Wars CCG
Posted: Sun Mar 10, 2019 9:19 pm
Blood Wars, a short-lived collectible card game based off of the Planescape setting, features a small collection of characters seen (to my knowledge) nowhere else. After going through this fansite I believe I've singled out every one of them, but if I missed any or if some of these appear elsewhere give a heads up.
- Aferoxxynomak: A rust dragon from Acheron.
- Darktome the Arcanaloth: An arcanaloth from Khalas, Gehenna.
- Ercid, Rudra's Vengeance: A marut enlisted by Rudra. I'm guessing this is supposed to be the same individual as the one mentioned in the marut's profile in the first Planescape Monstrous Compendium Appendix.
- Exiraati: Apparently an entire species of "lesser" astral dreadnoughts that never got a writeup. Another card, Revenge of the Exiraati, shows one seemingly commanding a pack of cranium rats. The artwork used here also appeared, unlabelled, in the Sigil and Beyond book of the Planescape Campaign Setting boxed set.
- Faaram the Slaadi King: A death slaad from Limbo. Could be interpreted as another Slaad Lord, or just a slaad that declared itself king in name only.
- Gamakar the Studious: A "temporary leader" for the Free League, probably devised so that every faction in Sigil could have a warlord card, even the ones that don't have factols.
- Gazra the Pit Fiend: A pit fiend from Baator.
- Lazzaret the Brown: A human wizard from Oerth.
- Lord Tenarrus: A balor from the Abyss.
- Marisa: A human mage/thief from Toril.
- Mellinos the Rrakkmal: A githzerai lord from Limbo. I don't think the term "Rrakkmal" is used outside of this card, maybe it refers to someone with great achievements in the Rrakkma.
- Old Hannirian: An inhabitant of the Spire, Outlands. I can't identify what species, if any, this character is supposed to belong to. This art, like the Exiraati, also appeared in the Sigil and Beyond book.
- Orryx: A shadow fiend from Cathrys, Carceri.
- Perigon: A temporary leader of the Revolutionary League, in the same vein as Gamakar.
- Phylaras: A bariaur lord from Ysgard.
- Thomstel Maedarson: A human wizard from the Outlands.
- Tokkarest Mercenary: A mercenary of an indeterminate species. Art is also from the Sigil and Beyond book.
- Urial the Celestial Arrow: A solar from the Upper Planes.
- Vadarther the Ultroloth: An ultroloth from the Wasting Tower, Gray Waste.
- Xerxes the Vigilant: A per from the Upper Planes.
