    Definately, if space does not make it impossible having both the formula (Attack: Wis vs. Will etc.) and a blank box where one can write the current result would be the most usable in the game from my limited preview experience.

    For a couple of months already I was considering the idea of putting all the inventory on 2.5 x 3.5 cards. Today I started to implement the idea. Here is my first try.

    The upper text box can serve different purpose - you can write a fancy name for the item there or just +1 flaming or something like that. More information can be included on the back of the card. I intended to give each player a binder with the classical character sheet in a plastic file and 2-3 card sheets from MtG album to keep their stuff.

    P.S. The image of the sword is taken from http://www.trueswords.com/. No copyright infringement intended - I am not going to distibute this one.

    If you compile all the powers from KoTS (preferably in txt format) I'm sure we will all be very happy to make power cards for you

    I have been trying to learn MSE. im not at all good as you folks are. But using Tintagels formats, and watching his video many times, and looking at all the created stuff on the website (trolls, quindia, Randolph, etc; and the posters suggestions here) i'm slowly starting to get the hang of putting in text. Here is kinda what i came up with using his stat cards.

    I dont know how you guys come up with the art, backgrounds, and wonderful colors. but keep up the great work!

    Which ones are needed?
    Nevermind, all the powers I have are the same as were shown here previously. If people need more let me know.

    Nice link!
    From a making cards perspective, having txt that can be copy/pasted makes things faster...

    If you use the plastic sleeves then you can use a erasable pen and write the total damage on the sleeve. then you change it as needed.

    Late commer to the thread and all, but I was just deciding to try this as of late last week...

    Also, @ Tintagel:

    Some cards I found on Educatedgamer.net under Paladin-Pregen.pdf, I think the action icon of Channel: Divine Strength looks off. It has the cog of the Standard action, not the Asterik of the Minor action, but is listed as a Minor action.

    Hope that helps...
