I am not very interested in talent cards (which can already be easily referenced on a single page).

 

What I think we need are cards with adversary stats on them. Some ready made baddies that I (as a GM) can whip out in a pinch, with all their pertinent data. 

 

You could theme the packs, like Imperials, Gangsters, Corporate, Pirates, etc.

 

Who's with me here?

Yeah that would be a great idea. Maybe each book could be a pack which includes all the "baddies" in there!

Very unlikely to buy the specialisation cards but would definitely buy Adversary decks!

Opinions stated in the above post are my opinions.
They may be different from your opinions, that is ok, that's how the world works.

This would be much preferred to the notebooks, index cards, word docs, or other methods that I'm bludgeoning myself with trying to organize npc's. Spoiled from WFRP and still haven't figured out a clean, efficient way to do this yet that I like.

I am pretty sure that back to the beta days some one already did that. At least, I have downloaded some pdfs in card format with the stats, equipment etc. of the badies.

Someone did that with the ones in the book at least, something like 3 or so to a page.  Very helpful during a game.  If you want some, why not try to find that PDF and organize them into three by five cards?  It would save you a bit of cash.  That said, anything that they want to publish I am happy about.  I may not purchase it, but every gamer has different needs and learning methods.

Yes yes, I have them, it is no problem.

 

For those who may be interested, here is the forum's thread and here a link to the creator's blog with all the stat blocks. Obviously, it is nothing as fancy as FFG could do, but they are super functional and for free.

 

Cheers,

Yepes

Those still have the beta stats on them, so you'll need to update some of the information if you want to bring them up to release stats.

Yes, I said that. Nevertheless, what I wanted to point out is that creating card sized stat blocks for enemies (which is very handy for the GM) is a very easy task. You only need word or power point, or similar softwares (and a printer).

 

Of course, the cards that FFG can eventually produce will have much fancier pictures and design, and this is what you will be buying, because the cards from FFG won't be more functional than the ones you can create yourself.

 

I am not against the cards, I will just not buy them, I will safe my money to buy things I cannot do myself. I just hope that FFG keep focusing their efforts on producing good supplements for the game.

 

Cheers,

Yepes

Not a bad idea considering I've been planning on using a Rolodex to store home made adversary cards.

I am currently working up NPC and Adversary cards for Escape from Mos Shutta and Long Arm of the Hutt. It is not an insignificant amount of work. If FFG released them I would be all over them like stink on a tauntaun.

Aye, I'd buy these in a heartbeat.

I keep looking at getting custom playing cards printed up. It's around $15 for 54 with the adversary image on one side and a stat block (akin to the triumph and despair ones posted earlier) on the rear.

I'm currently holding off in the hope adversary cards are announced (and it's taking forever to do custom stat blocks as images for uploading :P)

I agree with the OP, please make Adversary Cards.

 

And when you do make multiples of Minion Groups.

 

 

Ship cards would be nice as well but if you have to choose which to do first go with Adversary Cards.


Watch these now. Really, right now. (Oh, there's some naughty language but we're all adults :D here)

I'm averse to Minion cards simply because... there's really not much to them beyond Characteristics, equipment and what skills they have ranks in when operating as a group; otherwise, unless you're wanting to use a format like what those aforementioned cards use there's little that you can't just whip up on the fly; Rival and Nemesis cards would have more value.


 

Well, according to George Lucas, the Empire is intended to be bad guys and the Sith to be objectively evil.

Fans proceeded to immediately disregard his bull and have fun with the Empire and make believable characters left and right, and come up with sensible rationalizations east, west, north and south.
