Re: Arcmage leaflet/booklet

Do you want to have one box-set containing all the decks? Or do you want to have a separate package for each deck? I agree with your bullet points for things that should be included. It would be cool if we could work in the Creator Endorsed mark somehow, but obviously this is complicated when many o...

Re: Removing VP from ARC and Improving Cities

I also corrected the 'Farmland' being overpowered, as used resource cards are destroyed now.
Oh, good! I'd been meaning to bring this up. Before the red/black deck could not ever win against the green one. I'll test out this change.

Re: Removing VP from ARC and Improving Cities

I have to admit, after playtesting a few more times, I've changed my mind about this. I think it would likely be worth the investment to simplify the game. Dark Legion cards can interact with a city's health instead of VP. Cards that do direct damage to a player can do direct damage to a city instead.

The forum logs me out frequently

I'm guessing there's an issue with the cookie setting, because the forum doesn't keep me logged in. I imagine this is deterring people from writing posts.

Please make sure the cookie URL in the site settings matches the URL for the forum.

Licensing thoughts (GPL)

Okay, so I'm not a lawyer and you should take everything I say with a grain of salt. These are potential issues I'm seeing. In the GPLv3, section 6, it says: You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the machine-readable Corr...

Re: Removing VP from ARC and Improving Cities

I have mixed feelings about it. It would require reworking a number of release-candidate cards, like Elvish Ambush, Elvish Archer, Undead Archer, Forgiving Vampire, Dark Portal, Deadly Shock, Misled Goblin, and Lobotomized Library. This would dramatically affect the flavor and gameplay of Dark Legio...

Problems with the card "Abduction"

The card Abduction has a few issues. 1. It is an Event, yet contains a ↩ symbol. You would not need to mark an event card, so I suggest removing the symbol. 2. The text says "Move the marked card to a city or the army controlled by its owner." This is problematic because it's not clear whether this ...
