(A♠️) Kasirta samingir
After four days of tracking, Darius approached a cliff edge and found the enemy Iertae cavalry—or, what remained.
Below, a lone samingir stood at the heart of a snowy moon painted on a blood-red canvas. Darius clutched his woolen kaap,
but it lent no aid. The chill he felt was one born of death.
The ace of spades. This card depicts an elite warrior from the northern nation Sipiorr. Only 7 samingir hold the rank of Kasirs. To become this rank, one must challenge and kill another who holds the rank. In Sipiorr the warriors master what they call their Sokan (the 10 senses). The magic they have, gained from slaying others, can increase any of the 10 at the expense of another. For instance, one can increase their sense of sight and sense of temperature simultaneously to gain inhuman abilities like infrared vision. Or one could dampen their sense of temperature to fight off the cold. Sipiorda warriors train under these extreme conditions and become extraordinary fighters, capable of modulating their Sokan on the fly effortlessly. Many will fight with steel weapons but this particular samingir has modified an ollo with obsidian, mined from the extinct caldera they live within. A terrifying and brutal weapon that often leaves behind shards in flesh with every swing.
The first paragraph is the working flavor text for the card. I've been hard at work trying to make 52 unique, lore-filled, and cool flavor texts. I'll start posting a few more. Any comments or thoughts would be appreciated :) Also, with the help of a linguist friend, we made a noun class for Sipiorr. Hopefully you'll see that the nouns for this nation are mix of Japanese and old Norse.
