One of my favorite Garner exchanges, from "Support Your Local Gunfighter":

Jug (Jack Elam): You hit that fella from behind!
Latigo (James Garner): Just as hard as I could!
Incoming munitions always have the right of way.

You could take the Dark Set and recolor them to look like sand.. I did this for my Dark/Stone Brute and my Dark/Staff Brute...

And the -to hit debuff for Dark even plays into the theme.. sand in the eye..

try to hit someone with sand all in your eyelids..
Hmm I've seen people do it for the control set. But not the other dark stuff. That's pretty interesting.

Sure, NOW I look it up, and find that Garner died July 19th. I don't know why it seems like it happened just a week ago. Someone's playing with my time sense.

Thoughts of Marvel's Sandman come to mind. Sand is sorta like Earth, isn't it?

Or, you could just be a dirty crook. A dirty smelly crook. One who leaves behind toxic fumes, Pigpen of Peanuts fame style..

The tier 9 power could be channeling some lava from deep within the Earth (causing you to move like a Stone tank who's rooted - so not at all)

There's probably a lot of different ways to do it, but it just makes me think of Earth Control.

I much prefer Vertigo's Sandman... ;P

Uhhh... Do you say that because Baby didn't make it past 89, or because James Garner was struck down at the tender age of 86?

No I just say it in general as something to mean that stuff like that is soooooooo high pressure.

Join the club. I was thinking that James Garner died around the same time as Gabriel Garcia Marquez. But turns out Garcia Marquez died in April. Somehow I just lost three months.

UPDATE

I did contact the team yesterday and got this reply back:

Things are moving along. We should have things worth showing fairly soon, made a great leap forward yesterday.

The thing is while it is quiet here - work is being done behind the scenes.

Thank you Ironwolf!

I ran a dark/storm troller tinted red for blood.
I can easily see it being earth tones for sand, as well. Tornado turns into a dust-devil. :D
