"The Eurobeat Continues" Story Thread


Recommended Posts

"The Eurobeat Continues" is a "super-archetype" thread composed of five separate archetypes tied together by a group of "Drift" Quick-Play Spells.  The card thread can be found HERE.

When I had originally begun designing the archetype, I had also started writing a story alongside the cards.  The new thread is now called "The Eurobeat Continues", because I had an older thread with all of this set-up and spoiler'd so it was nice and neat.  I posted the story bits every week when I "bumped" the thread, however, when the site was updated, the post got way out of hand since the spoilers weren't working.

All that said, it was one of my personal favorite projects, so I plan to repost the whole thing in weekly installments just like I had done last time.  This thread will have the story while the other will have the cards.  On the whole, I am going to try to write these independently so if you are interested in the story, you don't need to look at the cards, and vice versa.  However, for maximum flavor and lore, I would recommend glancing at both threads.

Thanks for looking through and I hope you enjoy!

List of cards is HERE.  You can see the characters as cards.

Don't worry about the brevity of this post.  Just like last time, the story intentionally starts off slow and without much information.  Background will be built up as the story progresses.

“Daddy, can you tell me a story?”
“Ok, sweetie, get comfortable.  Did I ever finish telling you the story with the racers?”
“Oh, I like that one! But you never finished it though.”
“I guess I should start at the beginning then…”

~~~

“The Blazing Racers were a team that burned up the track and the mountain passes alike with their high-speed drift techniques.  Together, this team of elite racers were indisputably the best group of drivers in the world.

One day, their old mentor, the enigmatic Master Draft, calls the team back to her underground racing dojo.  She had received a warning and a challenge.  She had received a message from one of her sources.  “A threat looms over our planet from the stars.”  She said, “That threat is far off for now, but you all need to be ready to race against the best in the universe.”  She looks over to the corner.

The Blazing Wheels’ financier, Ms. Elara Erie moves into the light and drops a note onto the table for the team to read.  “It seems as though the racing world is a lot bigger than we expected.” she said, smiling.

Captain Young, the leader of the Blazing Wheels gave a huge grin, “Alright team, it looks like we’ve got some work to do!”

Bump~

Dunno how I forgot to update this last weekend.  Probably just blown away by all the site changes, but I do plan to post the second archetype (hopefully) tomorrow but definitely before the weekend.

Third set will not be posted this weekend though; something's come up that needs taking care of by early next week.

List of cards is HERE.  Check out the racing clones!

~~~

"While the Blazing Wheels were perfecting their skills aboveground, an undersea civilization was thriving and began developing their own racing techniques.  100 years ago, the king - Orichalcum - sired a child whom the oracles claimed would save the galaxy.  The child, however, was interested only in racing and seeking better and better challengers - completely forgoing his father's instruction.  His father, angered, exiled the boy and his mother.  However, the people loved him and even without his father's help, the boy became influential and his skills took him to the top of the undersea's racing world."

"10 years later, recognizing that the prince was a racer unlike any that was ever seen, undersea scientists came to him and offered him a unique opportunity.  They would preserve him in cryosleep and create clones of him so that he would always have a true challenge.  The prince agreed.  He did not realize that his father had talked to his mother and - recognizing his error - had hired the scientists to place the prince in cryosleep so that the boy could be awoken when his destiny finally caught up to him.  As the prince slept, the lab's clones took the racing world by storm. Soon the entire racing circuit was clones racing each other, each racer and car tweaked to specialize in certain racing techniques.  The people did not care; they loved this new entertainment."

"Back in the present, Orichalcum and his undersea civilization had finally been "discovered" by the surface peoples.  Seeing this as an invasive force, Orichalcum sent diplomats to the surface.  The diplomats returned with amusing news.  The people on the surface were peaceful; however, they were curious if these legendary "clone racers" were any good.  They insisted that the undersea peoples bring their best racing team to the surface and face off against the dominant Blazing Wheels team."

"Orichalcum, flabbergasted at this development, had the lab awaken his son for the race of a lifetime..."
