Avlissian Chess Sets

PostAuthor: Kandi_Nulein » Wed May 19, 2010 6:25 pm

This silliness was mooted very briefly at the Aussie Pub meet in a tell I sent to another player. It got me thinking about what would your ideal Avlis chess set be?

Would you have a set unique to your all time favourite PCs? Obviously the black peices would be the evil PCs and the white the goody goodies. But who would you choose for which piece and why?

In this you could go even further by having themed sets the most obvious being the different religious affiliations Maleki vs Gorethar maybe or a set based on various Holy Warriors or even the two sides of the MChek Nanshi war, heck even a mage order set might be possible if you golden oldie players want to necro some of your really old PCs.

Me, I don't know much about Maleki except what I've seen or heard about IG in the few years I have been playing but I'd have to start with Silver Fox as the black queen with Dameon as the black king (he was once a Malekite right?). Queen and Kings side peices might correspond to their own sex where possible. In this case I'd go for Angus Blacksail as knight kings side.

And there my knowledge of Malekites ends, unfortunately.

What would be your ideal set and why?

Could be fun then again it could just be a complete failure!!

Not sure of all of them but Melonius or perhaps Lafreth would be White King. White Queen, Eldraea or Rika.


Black King would probably be Damar, or maybe Rhiss. Black Queen? Not sure - might be unfair to suggest Miette, as she isn't really Evil, or so she says :lol:


I will have a think about the others :wink:

I would do Gorethites vs. Malekites

Give me a little to think up of the piece setup.




And typical joke: Only issue I'm running into is all the Gorethites are pawns! *rimshot*
