Thread: Making your own power cards
Sunday, 27th April, 2008, 11:03 PM #231
Great work, folks. I've been working on my own cards as well. They won't really benefit anyone else because I am only planning on making cards for the powers my players choose as they need them (I have no where near enough free time to attempt to make a full set at this time), but I thought I'd add ideas to the design pool...
I printed a few on high gloss photo paper and placed them in card protector sleeves and I am extremely happy with the results. I decided to not try to add graphics to the cards because some of the powers (Mage Hand for one) completely fill the space. I also left off "At Will", etc. as the color of the card (and the backing of my card protectors) will be obvious.

I didn't want this lost.
How's it going Trolls?
I know internet time is infintely faster than real time, but I was hoping you might maybe be finished.
Also quindia, what program did you use and do you have templates?
I think having a site dedicated or a forum, where people can pick and choose which format they like would be great and as some people build them they repost them, eventually a newbie would come by and get a full set, but for now we could be making and using the ones we need and sharing them.
That's dwarven for, "I got an axe an' I aint afraid ta use it."

I think these and Trolls are the best ones I've seen so far. I really like the simplicity of the design. Are you sure there's no way that you can throw a template up somewhere? Or at least tell those of us who are not artistically inclined, but still have access to a copy of Photoshop how you made these?
I'm thinking you're totally out to lunch on this one. Find another form of foreplay that doesn't involve 3 hours of explanation and a pocket calculator.

Yes, even a copy of the photoshop file would be a great help.

I could see an application that would take an XML file and use a card template to make a printout of customizable cards. Or maybe a pdf document, web page, or some other such thing with forms that could fill in cards similar to Magic, the Creation.

Genetically engineered monsters, some of them of human-level sentience, engage in brutal pit fights at the behest of malnourished vagabond adolescants while shadowy corporations operate in the background and superficially cheerful female nurse clones (or androids) tend to the every need of monster and trainer alike..."

The program I used was CorelDraw and I will be happy to post the CDR file for those with that program if anyone is interested. I'll post a blank Photoshop file of the basic card background as well for folks who want to drop their own text on top of it.
Give me a day or so.

Here are JPG's of the backgrounds. I'll post the CDR tomorrow...

Holy Double Crap!
Quindia and Trolls, your work is awesome. I can't decide which layout I prefer. Congratulations to you both!

Morning, all. Since the CDR is not an allowed file type for attachment to the board, I dropped it into the web. You can find it here:
Power Cards CorelDraw File
The file is just over 1Mb and contains three cards (one of each color) and the symbols I made to go in the bubbles. You can open the file with CorelDraw 12 or higher or probably import it Adobe Illustrator if you have that program. The newer versions of WordPerfect may also be able to open/import it but I don't own that program. If you are successful with any other combination, post it here!
I embedded the fonts, but just in case, the serif font is Flareserif 821 BT and the body text is simply AvantGarde BK.
