Troll Girls

SG_Crux-Knight-PintailFrom time to time the denizens (or whatever you want to call us) of #Osamuko’s IRC channel begin playing games. Whether it is a loli text-based RPG, or a battle among Gods, there are plenty of sites that we frequent when we want to take a break from the epic battles we have at the mahjong tables every day. So, here is the next thing: Sword Girls.

Sword Girls is an online TCG written in flash to work for any browser (no downloads or heavy clients). You can craft any card in the game for free, though paying has its benefits. There are regular events, daily quests, and even cash prizes for the elite. And the fun part? They cards are all girls.

There is also a random factor to it, and the fights have a nice flow (no more than 5 minutes for really hard fights). Dungeons, bosses, mining, you can even gift cards to your girl so she’ll evolve.

Did I mention the random factor? There are awesome cards out there that can change the course of the game. Swap Spell, which might as well have a troll face attached to it, Sister’s Letter, Shrink, oh, and it’s always fun when your opponent has a highly buffed character and you ran out of removals, and all you can do is watch your sword girls attack the wrong target… repeatedly, embarking into suicidal missions.

So, yeah, join us at the IRC and ask for a Fight!

Also, this is a sorry excuse for an April post.

  1. >You can craft any card in the game for free

    I’ve heard there is/will be some cards you can only get by buying the premium pack at the end of a fight

    1. During the first week (or month, depends) an episode is released, cards of the current episode are only available through premium select, but they -will- always become available for crafting at the Science Lab.

      Even if Luthica Nemesis was available to craft right now, I don’t have the materials yet anyway. w

  2. This game is pretty hard on new players after the tutorial. Also, the ungodly amount of grinding to craft useful cards (double rares) like Fatal Blow [Destroys all cards on both fields whose size is equal to or less than the combined amount of cards you have in your hand and on your field. tl;dr- wipes out the entire field] I estimate 1 month of grinding or 1 week of hardcore grinding to make one card. OTL

    I guess I won’t bother trying to convey how it feels to grind for around 300 Heart Stones (each floor gives 1 if you win the battle) in a 10 floor dungeon and fighting a boss at the top floor which you know you can’t defeat with a newbie deck since she has 3 copies of that precious Fatal Blow card you’re working ever so hard to craft…

    And yes, as Osamu mentioned there are many cards in fact which can only be obtained through purchasing boosters with the premium currency in SGO. They are NTRs and NDRs (Non-craftable Double/Triple Rares) and event cards which can be found in many of the booster packs and event booster packs. But of course, they’re very very rare. Also, Talentium, a material used for crafting certain cards is purchasable only with premium currency.
    examples of the rigging level:

    http://sword-girls.info/cards/ruins-end
    http://sword-girls.info/cards/one-winged-edelfelt

    Edelfelt…by legend says it once came in an event booster. Also, very rigged and difficult to craft. (Note how by raw materials, it uses 240 Talentium Pearls, obtainable only by premium currency.)

    Also, it won’t kill them to have events and updates more often…
