Re: Regarding abillities

I forgot about this thread! I am just going to repeat what julie said - it is better to define the key words if at all possible, and leave it out only if there is no way to fit it on the card. There will always be barrier's to entry, but if we can take down as many as we possibly can, we will have a...

Re: Licensing thoughts (GPL)

Not sure why I haven't posted here yet. I completely agree with this. CC-BY-SA is a better way to license artwork than the GPL. Richard Stallman clearly designed it for software, and I believe he has said on occasion that software like games should be distributed in two pieces - the software, and th...

Re: Removing VP from ARC and Improving Cities

That would make sense, however the card generation tool can't handle that right now. To generate inline symbols (as the mark and the current circles) we use a custom designed font, and that's hard and difficult work. Q_x might pull it off, but not me :-) Sticking with the "Produce <x> <faction> res...

Hey, don't know how I missed your post. Welcome aboard! Your app looks cool, I'll have to check it out. It will be good to have more people to playtest the game!

Re: Removing VP from ARC and Improving Cities

Magic recently changed "add X to your mana pool" to "Add X". I actually like removing the words "mana pool" from cards for simplicity's sake. I just really wish they had gone with "Produce X", since I can't help but think "to what?" whenever I see "Add X". May I suggest that the template be "Produc...

Re: The Uprising

http://aminduna.arcmage.org/#/decks/ade9be8e-a414-4da9-a97a-e843a40aa2af I've updated the deck to have a larger focus on Orcs. Removed the Goblin King's Throne Room in favor of Second Son's Army Camp. Only missing art for Goblin Burrower, and I can't think of anything to switch it out for. At this p...

Re: Three new ARC decks ready for review.

Now for a review of Toll of Time. Overall I'm really impressed with the changes that have been made since I last looked at this deck. The art looks good and the mechanics look good. We'll see if that survives playtesting :P Toll of Time Binding Contract - Fixed a typo. Carpe Diem - Should we spell o...

Re: Rules text style?

I will get this put on to the wiki in a little bit. EDIT: On number 7, I think italicized is the way to go. It is reminder text, there if wanted/needed, but should be unobstrusive otherwise. Bolding and italicizing the entire definition will make it overpowering to the other card text. Also, when I ...

Re: Three new ARC decks ready for review.

I have a few things to say for initial review, and I'll come back later with playtested criticism. I'm going to start with the Brothers in Arms deck and move on to the other ones as time permits. Right off the bat, I don't like the X for city defense points. Cities should have a set amount, adjusted...

Rules text style?

We have a style guide for the art on the cards, but we don't have one for the cards themselves. I'm talking mostly about the text. I have a number of questions (and probably more in the future) that need to have answers so we can have consistent formatting for our cards. Do we end every sentence or ...
