Seldom spoken of, but not to be ignored...
Few games touch upon another important aspect of real life; the urge to compete, physically, for no better benefit than to be sweaty, in the company of like minds, and probably finishing off by drinking draft beer.
That's right, sports fans. We're talking sports.
Ever wonder who would want to keep up with their favorite team sports, and what might happen, if say, an adept or Avatar got involved?
Try some of these ideas.
Football: ever heard of a grudge? Irascimancers excel at making someone mad; we're talking rip-out-your-eyes-and-skullfuck-you *mad*. Watch old clips of the Raiders in the 1980s, and you'll see what I'm talking about. Imagine an Irascimancer giving the evil eye to a placekicker, or a nose tackle. Heaven help the poor bastard he keeps sacking, over and over again.
Baseball: want to irritate someone to death? Try being an Entropomancer, and nailing shot after shot into every batter in front of your mound. Eventually, one of them is going to try to kick your ass, six ways to sunday. Or, for real fun, trying for a major charge during the playoffs. Suddenly walking off the field, when the bases are loaded, two strikes, three balls, last batter.
Note: bring good running shoes, and keep a car running close at hand. You'll need it when the oddsmakers suddenly start spontaneously combusting in sheer terror of the payouts they'll need to make...
Basketball: doesn't this just scream out for someone to adjust those temperamental overpaid lunatics? You know what'd fit the bill? Annihilomancers. They'll bodycheck you into a hospital, and plant evidence of dope use into your UA sample, just to thrash your career. Hell, that's not even counting what they'll do if they get a personal bias against you.
Amoromancer as cheerleaders, anyone? Just a thought.
You get the idea.
Remember: playing one game shouldn't mean forgetting the others.
Then again, I just enjoy the idea of two Entropomancers playing golf in the rain, with rubber boots full of salt water, hoping to get hit by lightning...
