    Hi!
     
    A while ago, I created a basic custom card template for NPCs, ships, weapons and other categories. The main problem was both getting the data and finding good images.
    I wanted to relaunch the project of generating adversary cards that can be easily used at the table, and I would like to offer my current results with you:
     
    Star Wars RPG: NPC & Creatures Cards
     
     

     
    I took the data available at swrpg.viluppo.net and integrated them within Adobe InDesign to automatically generate NPC cards. Currently, there are 530 adversaries in their database and you can find as many cards to download.
    This is an ongoing project and I am not sure if all calculations and code work correctly, so I am looking forward to both feedback regarding some errors / logic mistakes but also hints for design. I plan to tweak the design a little bit in the next few weeks but I wanted to get the cards out now.  
     
    I used a few resources, credits for those go to:
     
    Data: Aahzmandius_Karrde, putting all the work in to bring the data to the index
    Stat Block Format: C. Steven Ross from Triumph and Despair for his revised stat block I took inspirations from
    Stat Block Template: Triliean for his template I merged with my old template

    Hi!

    While waiting to continue with the Menagerie, I looked around for another project. Some days ago mfluder posted Custom NPC Cards (http://community.fantasyflightgames.com/index.php?/topic/91545-custom-npc-game-cards-for-players/). I really liked the idea, so I decided to design some of my own.

    EotE: NPCs, Vehicles, Planets, Weapons, Armors, Gear and Starships.





    The pictures used are from Wookipeedia (Tie) or from the Under a Black Sun PDF. Teemo stats are place holder.

    TWO LAYOUTS
    I created the cards in two versions: One with the original EotE Fonts and one with Windows Standard Fonts everyone should have on his computer.

    Updated, version 2 is available for download!

    Link to the PSD-File which uses the EotE Fonts (you need to have them on your computer so that you can use them)
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/xpnzhcixbv95vfd/EotE_Custom_Cards_Original_Fonts_v2.zip

    Link to the PSD File which uses the Windows Standard Fonts (I tried to fit the look as closely as possible)
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/3tzgqtas0vrafbc/EotE_Custom_Cards_Standard_Fonts_v2.zip

    The files were made with Photoshop CS 6, but should work with most of Photoshop versions. All orange layers include information which needs to be changed for your own cards. To get the blurry edge of the picture insert the picture into the PSD, rescale it so that your picture is slighty larger than the blurry template. Then hold CTRL and click into the mask of the original picture layer (the black/white one next to the thumbnail) and click on "Mask" which is located at the very bottom of the layer tab.

    I see my work as Work in Progress, so Feedback is, as always, appreciated.
    I also plan to collect NPCs, Vehicles and Starships and put them all together in one big PDF but that needs some more time.

    the_dearth got a reaction from Roderz in The Complete Species Guide   
    I did not come up with this structure  but it makes sense when thinking about the most useful use cases. When a player looks for a specific race they can check in the index quite easily (moving it next to the table of content might be a good idea though). All others who are more trying to explore the book looking for a species, get a much easier way to go through by checking first which attributes are important to them and then going through the chapter.
    Alphabetical is easier to quick reference, but by attribute it is easier to explore and just look around for inspiration and my assumption is that the latter is the more common use case.

    Hi!
    Well I guess most of you have noticed the whole story unfortunately without happy end.
    However it ended, I always end my projects in proper ways.
    I am sure some of you liked the look of the Species Menagerie in the original EotE Layout and therefore I'd like to provide you with exactly that: The Revised Menagerie in the original EotE Layout.

    - is content wise the same compared to the other one posted on this board, only with the EotE Layout.
    - is searchable and optimized for mobile view (made with InDesign and not MS Publisher)
    - includes all the Species which were demanded to be left out in previous versions. If you are not happy with the official species, you can have a look here.
    I am not sure if I got all the errors and typos. If you find one, leave me a message and I'll fix it.

    So far I'm not, as it's quite high effort, and there are a few projects underway that use my template to create them. 
    Thank you! If you like the project, please consider advocating for it to be added in the sticky resource thread. My repeated requests of them to be added are ignored since posting the cards.

    Hi!
     
    A while ago, I created a basic custom card template for NPCs, ships, weapons and other categories. The main problem was both getting the data and finding good images.
    I wanted to relaunch the project of generating adversary cards that can be easily used at the table, and I would like to offer my current results with you:
     
    Star Wars RPG: NPC & Creatures Cards
     
     

     
    I took the data available at swrpg.viluppo.net and integrated them within Adobe InDesign to automatically generate NPC cards. Currently, there are 530 adversaries in their database and you can find as many cards to download.
    This is an ongoing project and I am not sure if all calculations and code work correctly, so I am looking forward to both feedback regarding some errors / logic mistakes but also hints for design. I plan to tweak the design a little bit in the next few weeks but I wanted to get the cards out now.  
     
    I used a few resources, credits for those go to:
     
    Data: Aahzmandius_Karrde, putting all the work in to bring the data to the index
    Stat Block Format: C. Steven Ross from Triumph and Despair for his revised stat block I took inspirations from
    Stat Block Template: Triliean for his template I merged with my old template

    Hi!
    Well I guess most of you have noticed the whole story unfortunately without happy end.
    However it ended, I always end my projects in proper ways.
    I am sure some of you liked the look of the Species Menagerie in the original EotE Layout and therefore I'd like to provide you with exactly that: The Revised Menagerie in the original EotE Layout.
    High Resolution [18 MB]:

    This version:
    - is content wise the same compared to the other one posted on this board, only with the EotE Layout.
    - is searchable and optimized for mobile view (made with InDesign and not MS Publisher)
    - includes all the Species which were demanded to be left out in previous versions. If you are not happy with the official species, you can have a look here.
    I am not sure if I got all the errors and typos. If you find one, leave me a message and I'll fix it.
    Have fun!

    Hi!

    While waiting to continue with the Menagerie, I looked around for another project. Some days ago mfluder posted Custom NPC Cards (http://community.fantasyflightgames.com/index.php?/topic/91545-custom-npc-game-cards-for-players/). I really liked the idea, so I decided to design some of my own.

    EotE: NPCs, Vehicles, Planets, Weapons, Armors, Gear and Starships.





    The pictures used are from Wookipeedia (Tie) or from the Under a Black Sun PDF. Teemo stats are place holder.

    TWO LAYOUTS
    I created the cards in two versions: One with the original EotE Fonts and one with Windows Standard Fonts everyone should have on his computer.

    Updated, version 2 is available for download!

    Link to the PSD-File which uses the EotE Fonts (you need to have them on your computer so that you can use them)
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/xpnzhcixbv95vfd/EotE_Custom_Cards_Original_Fonts_v2.zip

    Link to the PSD File which uses the Windows Standard Fonts (I tried to fit the look as closely as possible)
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/3tzgqtas0vrafbc/EotE_Custom_Cards_Standard_Fonts_v2.zip

    The files were made with Photoshop CS 6, but should work with most of Photoshop versions. All orange layers include information which needs to be changed for your own cards. To get the blurry edge of the picture insert the picture into the PSD, rescale it so that your picture is slighty larger than the blurry template. Then hold CTRL and click into the mask of the original picture layer (the black/white one next to the thumbnail) and click on "Mask" which is located at the very bottom of the layer tab.

    I see my work as Work in Progress, so Feedback is, as always, appreciated.
    I also plan to collect NPCs, Vehicles and Starships and put them all together in one big PDF but that needs some more time.
