    These five items will be added to the game alongside Mauve Manticore 10 in early-mid October, at which time I will open the next round of Aloyzo's Arsenal.


    What is Aloyzo's Arsenal? The wizard Aloyzo has finally decided to make himself useful, and is now enchanting custom items! The only problem is, he's pretty slow about it, filling only one order each month. He’s also a bit temperamental—every month, he may have some restriction on what kind of item he’s willing to make. Still: he might fill your order! Use the form below to request his services.

    (Disclaimer: Alozyo is still quite maladroit. In addition to giving his customer the requested item, he probably also accidentally mass-produces it and scatters the copies throughout Cardhuntria.)

    Aloyzo's Arsenal #3
    this month's restriction: monster theme, up to 1 monster-only card per item

    # Order Form
    Every month, you have a chance for Aloyzo to make an item of your choice. To place an order for this month, make a post in this thread. Limit one post per player per month. When you place your order, you must include the following information:

    1. In-game Username
    This is necessary for Aloyzo to deliver your item.

    2. Item Name
    Aloyzo does not guarantee that he will craft your item with the requested name.

    3. Item Slot (e.g. Divine Item)
    E.g. "Divine Item" — Aloyzo won't craft your item if you do not specify this.

    4. Cards
    Aloyzo recommends that you only request cards already on existing items of the requested slot, as these enchantments are more likely to work. Dabbling is risky.

    DO NOT submit any accompanying explanation of why your item should be selected. Submit only the above 4 pieces of information. Submitted items should not be discussed anywhere until after submissions are closed.
    • You do not need to preordain the level or rarity of the item you're ordering, but @Vakaz has set up a tool to make such an endeavor easier if you feel like trying.
    • That said, items of particularly high quality may be too complex for Aloyzo to craft.
    (If your submission would be level 22+, it is unlikely to be selected.)
    • Also, Aloyzo isn't interested in crafting existing items, so please make sure your idea doesn't already exist in-game by consulting the wiki.

    # Clarification of This Month's Restrictions
    What's up this month? The winning items of AA3 (yes, items) will be added to the game in October, alongside our usual Halloween celebration content. Aloyzo will craft the items of five (5!) lucky winners, and these items will all be added to the special Halloween store.

    Winning items will be those tightly themed around a monster already in the game (for example, Wyverns, Kobolds, or Sharkbears). Each submitted item may have up to one (1!) currently monster-only card on it. For your best chance at winning, include a monster card that is similar to an existing player card in function and that isn't clearly too powerful. Each item must still be tied to an item slot, and fit the function of that item slot—so, if you make a Wyvern-themed item, say, and you want to include Wild Spark, it better be a staff because long-range high damage spells don't belong on any other slot.

    Items do not need to include a monster-only card to have a chance at winning: you may include one, or zero.

    Ask in the discussion thread if you need more clarification. :)

    If you like, you may include the name of the monster around which you themed your submission in your submission. Here's an additional clarification on the design goal here.

    # Rewards
    What you get if Aloyzo accepts your order:
    • a copy of your item, delivered straight to your inventory!
    • your item will also be released into the game's loot tables for all Card Hunters to hunt!
    • your name may appear in Card Hunter news!
    • you will also receive an epic chest, a gift from the smiling gods of Cardhuntria!
    • in October only, your item will be in the Halloween store!

    Alozyo's Arsenal updates monthly in tandem with Mauve Manticore, starting with MM#8 in August. The winning item from this round of submissions will be added to the game in October alongside MM#10.

    # Questions
    Q: Can I submit more than one item?
    A: If you want to submit multiple ideas, you have to do it over multiple months. Only one submission per month!

    Q: I submitted an item last month. Can I submit it again?
    A: Yes, but be warned that it might not be worthy of Aloyzo's consideration if it hasn't already been selected. Also, different months may have different restrictions, so one month's submission may not qualify the next.

    Q: When do submissions close?
    A: Eh, we're winging it, as there's no exact date for the Mauve Manticore releases. Submit sooner rather than later if you're worried.

    Q: Is there anything that will instantly disqualify my item?
    A: No... but if your item name includes references to intellectual property not owned by Blue Manchu, such as Mickey Mouse or Iron Man, Aloyzo guarantees he will change it should it be selected for crafting.

    Q: You've historically only picked items I don't like. Explain yourself!
    A: Okay. Read this post for an explanation of the point of this contest.

    Other questions? Ask in the discussion thread.

    Please only post in this thread to submit an order. Thanks!

    Gnomish War Cap!
    1. In-game Username

    2. Item Name
    Gnomish War Cap

    3. Item Slot (e.g. Divine Item)

    4. Cards
    [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]

    Level 11, (minortoken)

    Lets be honest- this is a really dubious item, doesn't exactly make sense to the format, and I'm totally wasting my submission slot.
    But would I forgive myself if I didn't submit this?

    Because the gnomes are frothing at the mouth, waiting in the shadows, and preparing for their invasion- and to defeat them, we must be willing to even use their own tactics against them.

    Okay, actual submission:

    1. In-game Username

    2. Item Name
    Stench Demon's Horns

    3. Item Slot (e.g. Divine Item)

    4. Cards
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Level 9, (minortoken)

    This is the upper part of a stench demon's skull, used as a makeshift helm. Probably by a dwarf, they're odd like that.
