    Backs for Ander00's wonderful power cards. Simple with legal disclaimer. Took the Logo from the backs in the first few pages of this thread.

    There is no outline border for the backs, cut your cards from the crunchy front side. If you are using letter sized paper (versus A4 which the cards are designed for) Then you need to leave a little white border outside of the outline box.

    Been watching this thread for a bit and I really like the idea of the power cards. What I'm looking for, though, is the SET file for MSE so I don't need to re-enter all the info. (yes, lazy).
    Anyone willing to supply one?

    @Ander00:

    Your power cards are fab, but it is a lot of pages. I was going to try and print off as I needed, is there any logic to the layout or is it random?

    Just sort by the "Power Class/Type/Level" column and find the ones you need, print those.

    That's not really what you want. No, it isn't!

    What you want to do is make a set for your PC with all the exact numbers filled in. Which is better:

    Code:
    Hit: 2[W] + Dexterity modifier damage. In addition, 
    you switch places with the target and can then shift 1 square. 
    Artful Dodger: You can shift a number of squares equal 
    to your Charisma modifier.
    or

    Code:
    Hit: 2d4 + 5. In addition you switch places with 
    the target and can then shift 3 squares.
    No contest on game day, tho you have to print the second one out when the numbers change...

    If you like, feel free to host them on the Fan publishing site (I'm just not getting a gmail account for that), or do whatever else you please with them.

    The Set (core_complete_set.rar)
    This set consists of 753 cards in total, including the powers from classes, paragon paths, epic destinies, feats and races (from the PHB, the MM, and the DDI article on the warforged), as well as blank cards to fill in for the different item types (though you can also use the template to make finished cards for different items). If you're using a template based on Randolph's "D&D" game file, you can probabably still use the set, but you will have to reenter some of the information.

    The Template (mse-template-Ander.rar)
    The template now works with MSE version 3.0.6, and includes a style option for completely bland (or more printer-friendly, if you will) and not quite so bland cards (see attached samples). Comes with its own MSE game file.

    Power Documents (powers-docs.rar)
    The powers in .doc format.

    Installing the Template
    In case you are unfamiliar with MSE and aren't sure how to load a set, here are some short instructions to point you in the right direction.
    • Download and install MSE version 0.3.6.
    • Put everything from 'mse-template-Ander.rar' into the 'data' directory of the MSE installation.
    • Extract and open the 'core_complete.mse-set' contained in 'core_complete_set.rar'.

    If you have never dealt with .rar archives before, you may need to get WinRar or some other compression tool that supports .rar files.
    If you have previously used MSE, you might have to delete the 'mse8.config' file found in your '...Application Data/Magic Set Editor' directory.
    If you have problems with MSE itself, you might have to download the Windows 9x fix, even if you are using Windows XP.

    Power Card PDFs
    If you are so inclinded, you can download the whole set in PDF form.
    I'd still advise you to use the MSE option because you can easily make your own corrections as needed, add your own cards, and specify exactly which cards you want to print. But if, for some reason, you cannot get MSE to work, maybe you can get some use out of these PDFs.

    Hi,

    Your cards are excellent, and my group is planning on using them. I have been adding text boxes to the PDF files to make them even more user friendly for players/GMs.

    I have one question: Are you planning on including the other, basic Class Features? I know you have included some of them, but the following are missing, and would be handy to have:

    Fighter
    Combat Challenge

    Ranger
    Hunterĺs Quarry
    Prime Shot

    Rogue
    First Strike
    Sneak Attack

    Warlock
    Misty Step
    Dark Oneĺs Blessing
    Fate of the Void
    Prime Shot
    Shadow Walk
    Warlockĺs Curse

    Wizard
    Arcane Implement Mastery

    Whether you include them or not, your work is much appreciated.

    I'm a slave to my PDFs and you've provided a great set Ander00, BUT, would it be possible to create an 8.5" x 11" set?

    *The reason is that I have got my hands on US letter size "Card Stock" paper

    if you export the cards to PNG, then use windows photo gallery (on vista, I think it was fax and picture viewer on XP) to load the picutres into the gallery, you can choose a ton of pictures and then print, one of the options will be a 3x3 grid of 9 on a single sheet, uncheck the Fit picture to frame option and you can get some very nice sized cards that are easily readable, and as a bonus, 9 per sheet instead of just 8. They come out at roughly 2" x 3" that way, no ratio issues on their size either.
