PEACEFUL GIANT

There have always been stories of Giants in the Splinterlands, but recently they began to arrive. They bring tales of a home far across the water that they had to flee from a terrible threat. Luckily, these refugee Giants mean no harm to the Splinterlands. Most of them arrived by swimming across the entire Outer Ocean.

The giant may be a pacifist, but he’ll help you win when used at the right times. If you’re a strong magic or ranged player, he’ll work well as a shield in the front or the rear. We sadly killed all of the Earth’s giants after they built our pyramids and won our wars. I miss them. Shame on us for their enslavement, extinction, and cover-up! At least they peacefully battle on in the Splinterlands. For now… Can NFTs go extinct?

Oh no! I got a rich Gold carded higher-level enemy. I sometimes feel like the game’s AI has a conspiracy against me and always gives my enemies a bunch of misses. Not today. I was lucky and got way more misses and won this battle. Much thanks to the Peaceful Giant. He gave his life for our victory today. All of the DEC earned in today’s battle will go to his family. There aren’t that many giants left. Maybe we should refrain from using them in battle from now on…

Fire Spitter NFT Battle Challenge

Small but mighty, the Fire Spitters have recently descended upon the Dragon Splinter of Draykh-Nahka, where they fit right in. They come from a faraway exotic place only known as the Pocket Dimension. The Pocket Dimension has many key differences to the Splinterlands, but lots of things in common as well. Most of the monsters there are smaller than those native to the Splinterlands, including the Fire Spitter. However, even the smallest Fire Spitters can produce a magnificent blaze, large enough to easily incinerate a cottage in a few minutes.

I remember when Splinterlands used to reward this card out like it was candy. It’s now worth over sixty cents! I would like to request an interesting and maybe even depressing bot that shows what all the cards we’ve ever owned would be worth if we never sold, burned, or combined them. If I had just HODLed every card I’ve been rewarded over the years, I would easily have $10,000 now, but I was dumb, broke, greedy, and emotional, so I’ll have to work my way back from monster bottom just like I’ve done two times before. While it’s very exciting that NFTs are selling for millions of dollars, Splinterlands has been making NFTs accessible as rewards for gameplay for years. Even though I regret selling so many of my cards I always remind myself that this whole NFT gaming journey all began with just $10. Show me any other NFT site where all you need is $10 and can grow that into a champion account over time. Right now I don’t know of a better decentralized blockchain-based game than Splinterlands. Do you?

My Fire Spitter Battle:

It took me forever to get a victory, let alone a chance for my Fire Spitter to be useful, but this battle had it safely positioned in the middle helping take out the enemy’s lead monster with a ranged attack of 2. The Fire Spitter is also useful during earthquakes because as a dragon, of course, it can fly. Thank you for reading.
