    If possible, It'd be great to get these formatted for business card size. You can buy pre-punched sheets of business card stock. You can't for playing card stock

    This is just stupid and dangerous.

    Making your own power cords is stupid and dangerous.

    You could start fires people. Just spend the 5 bucks at the hardware store.

    Yes, I know I'm nuts but I've been seeing this thread and misreading the title every time.
    New Sig Rules are lame, and I am cheap.

    In my opine the new symbols are unintuitive. I don't have a better set to offer, it just seems to add a new system to learn to use the cards which lessens the economy of design you have otherwise created. But I suppose the price is right?

    Other than that they look great.

    Well, the symbols are just extras. You don't need the symbols to understand the card.

    This said, I really like the lower batch, as we have ranged/melee powers, we don't always get a single symbol, so I like it shifted into the notches - the bubble should only hold a single symbol. A small range indicator as subscript for the ranged symbol would also be pretty rad.

    Also: Please keep the bubble without any special colour - after seeing it, I really have to say, it makes the cards to overloaded with information (colour-wise) and distracts.

    Cheers, LT.

    Wow

    Those are incredible! My vote is for the bottom set as well.

    Though for icons, I'd try a hand for Standard, a boot for Movement and a lightning bolt for Immediate actions. I don't have a good idea for a Minor action, but what types of things can you do in a Minor? A picture of a common minor action would be perfect. (Is quaffing potions a minor?)

    What about the attached image as symbol for a standard action - it represents general activity.

    Cheers, LT.

    Hey BMM, This is how we are doing this:
    • Buy some card sleeves from your local gaming store. You can get 50 for about 1-2 bucks. I bought 50 red, 50 green, and 50 black.
    • Get a friend who has some old Magic The Gathering cards, or others of similar size. Get them cheap or free (probably free) - just get junk cards like lands or commons.
    • Slide 1 card into the sleeve for backing
    • Print these cards on regular paper and cut them out.
    • slide them in front of the regular card in the sleeve.


    Enjoy a durable and protected card, with sleeves color-coded by frequency type!

    Well, thanks. The design is inspired by your icons - though I'm a bit concerned about the similarity to the minor action symbol - perhaps it should rather be two interlocking wheels?

    Cheers, LT.
