    Hirahito Problem: New Card Generation

    Greetings...

    I am having an issue when it comes to creating new cards using the Hirahito set.

    I can create the card normally, including background, symbols, and text. The problem is that the database refuses to see the necessary flags to keep the new cards sortable or grouped with others of its type.

    For example: I can create a feat power (lets call it 'Channel Divinity: Divine Shield'). It requires you to be a worshipper of 'Shield' and requires you to take the feat 'Divine Shield'. It is an encounter ability, and can be used at a range of 2.

    When creating the card, the card will hold all of the necessary information. When looking at the database, however, the only field that auto updates is "Name". The "Class/Race" column (which should be "Feat Power" at this point) remains blank. As do the rest of the database fields.

    This could become particularly problematic if I was creating a new class and needed to input several abilities that require the class name and level to be associated with the card in the database.

    Is there something that I am doing incorrectly in order to achieve the desired effect? I've tried clicking in the database field itself expecting it to be editable, but had no luck with that, either.

    Until that time...

    Thanks in advance.
    Greetings...

    I know that the Hirahito set has Rituals already included in them; so you should check that set out. The Hirahito set also includes magic items.

    At last check, the Ander set doesn't appear to have rituals or magic items, though blank templates for items exist.

    Until that time...

    Since I wanted a mix between Ander style and Hirahito's Simple style for my cards, I made a new style greatly inspired by Ander's design.

    I liked Ander's simple and elegant cards, but not the landscape format, especially not for rituals, and other cards with a lot of text, and since Hirahito's set included rituals and magic items, I combined them.

    Here is the result (unzip and put into data directory).

    I only created one of the parchment backgrounds, the medium / light, so if you want one of the other two, you need to create the images yourself (from the template file).

    I updated Ander's set if anyone is interested. I also created condition cards and rituals cards. I made some condition marks and horse marks as well.

    If anyone is interested I can post them.

    I for one would love to see an update of Ander's set.

    Seeing rituals done this way would be pretty cool!

    Cheers, LT.

    Thanks a lot. Only catch is that I won't be able to take a closer look at your cards in the next few days, with three gaming sessions and an unfinished IRS report in my calendar.
