Re: event cards


I always dreamed of having the appropiate monster cards instead of reading the charts for every Batte [sign in to see URL] guy who made the spanish website "El ataud de amatista" (i found it in Brunos Links) made some monster cards too (for instance the skaven ones, with lot of flavour text too on the card).I Only didnt found a way to print them out.

@Mystified Michael: If you ever reach to complete some monstercards, your name would be praised throughout the whole gaming group. (Well, its praised a lot yet for your tons of other cards you made, but it would be still MUCH MORE praised, if ever possible. We could build a little shrine in honor to your name, if you are interested.
Your example monster card is just what we need, dont give up making more please please please emoticon.

Re: event cards


Here is an example of the cards I am speaking about:

Using these, You can really get creative when making your event deck(s).

1: Use resources available here as a starting point to create the intitial template.

2: Make a spot in the upper corner of the face templates to include the proposed battle level of the event (not necessarily just for M events)

3: For events that you already have, just coy them down to the face of the card. For new ones, simply write then up.

Note: With the intended battle level notated on the corner of the face, you can quickly sort in, or out, the cards appropriate for the game without actually having to see what the event is (unless you want to, of course). Also, using Battle Levels on E events allows you to make more difficult situations for the character to resolve as they gain experience.

I prefer to weed out all of the chances for the ol' "instant death" events and toss in a second (or third) chance that the character will survive, if not barely.

For me, the only thing I disliked about using cards was having to screw around after the print (cutting, gluing... making pretty, etc.,) So I just resize everything to work with perforated sheets that work in your printer. Initially, I used business-card sheets, which do work great (monopoly card size) but the index card size allows for much more growth in the game possibilities, battle levels possible and the fun of the whole thing... just print, tear, shuffle and play!

I go through all of this because I really enjoy using cards.

Re: event cards


Hi, I'm new to the group.

I just wanted to add this about tablse vs. cards - Using cards also allows you to regulate the ratio of Events to Monsters, which I prefer. With tables, you should get an average even split, but crazy rolls sometimes (often times) upset that balance.

Cheers,

Regault

Re: event cards


With Michael's Bestiary collections, I do have a solution to the "making lots of cards is a pain in the arse" problem by using business card, perforated paper.
It requires a bit of set-up time, but the results are great! Here's how I do it.

1. Get Michael's Card Collection Bestiary decks on the museum (pdf).

2. Using Adobe Acrobat Reader, select the first two rows of cards (3 rows of three per page, use the graphics select tool)

3. Edit > Copy (you should have just copied six cards)

4. Open up a photo editer (I use photoshop) and paste the image in.

5. Go back to acrobat reader and select and copy four more cards. the selection should be 2 cards high, 2 cards across, to keep thing quick and easy.

6. Paste those four into your phot editer.

7. attach the new six cards to the side of the original six, so you end up with ten cards. 5 across, 2 high in a single image file. (Using photoshop, I simply enlarged the canvas size of the original six cards to accommodate the final four, then pasted the remaining four in)

8. Rotate the image clock-wise 90 degrees.

9. resize the entire image to 7 inches wide by 10.2 inches high.

10. print the cards onto business card paper.

11. fold along perforations and get your brand new WQ cards!

I never have enough time to cut all those cards out... this works for me. If I could get more time, I would simply do the conversion for you and send them to Bruno to post at the Museum... but I haven't the time to do all of that formatting. Maybe Michael would be able to? (evil grin)

I will always use cards over tables... WQ spoiled me! But in order to use business cards, I would make copies of all of the originals as well, so you have complete sets in the same size. For cards that require too much info for business card size, I use Index card size for the entire deck. You can make all kinds of 'out-of-dungeon' Hazards Cards in this way.
