MTG Cards!

Postby SpencerDespenser » Sat Feb 23, 2013 8:26 pm

Using the magic of the internet, I've gotten into making custom Magic the Gathering (Friendship the Gathering) cards, and somepony gave me the idea to make them for everyone's PnP characters!

Every card will have a name, mana cost, Type and Sub-type, optional keyword (flying, first strike, etc.), ability, and flavor text.

It's free, because charging money for shit like this is silly. All I need from you, if you're interested, is your character's name, a picture (preferably with a background and who drew it), a little blurb about him/her/it (to get a sense of what their ability should be like), and maybe a quote for the flavor text.

I don't claim to be an expert on game balance, but I the focus here is on flavor, not necessarily practicality. :D

Neat. This looks like a lot of fun. You going to hold it to just making fun cards, or are you considering making an actual "Core Set"?

:o

A set could definitely be a possibility! Once I see enough interest, I'd start churning out some of the more "meat and potatoes" cards like lands, artifacts, and instants/sorceries.
