The full backstory on this one is long and boring, but it bears some explanation, so here you go…my friend “B” and I both play the card game Magic: The Gathering. An inside joke in our MTG group is that the deity Chronatog Jesus (a Chronatog, but also, y’know, Jesus) controls the Magic players’ fates, and blesses or curses their every draw, coin flip, card opening, and die roll.
In recent months, Chronatog Jesus has blessed B with an inordinate number of the card Kemba, Kha Regent — every pack, box, or card lot he’d buy that could conceivably contain one has given him at least that many. It’s become a pattern of sorts. Well, over this past weekend, B was gone for a teaching conference in another state. During this time, Chronatog Jesus, who happens to have a key to B’s house, saw fit to bless him with over 200 more copies of Kemba…some hidden in obvious places, some he may well never find, and many more in between.
It seems to me that Kemba, Kha Regent is the gift that keeps on giving. Far be it from me, after all, to deter the will of our turn-eating overlord. And so, to ensure that the blessing continues, I turn to you.
If you’d like to help, send me a PM with your address. I’ll mail you a Khemba, Kha Regent card and $3 to cover costs, along with a PO box address where you can send it to B in the name of Chronatog Jesus. Add any flourishes you like — you’re Dopers, I wouldn’t try to rein in your creativity — and take as much time as you please; it’s funnier if he gets some now and more later. Trust me, he’ll still be finding them come Christmas.
Thanks to any who care to help, and may our scaled and toothy shepherd guide you.
