Weapons Cards

Recommended Posts

I have been working on card templates using Magic Set Editor (http://magicseteditor.sourceforge.net/). Here is a sample of my current draft:

I started with many of the graphics from TheDearth's Community Project files, but decided to mimic the format of the upcoming Adversary Cards from FFG. If anyone is interested in the template, let me know.

Very cool!  Actually, this is getting me thinking... my generator has pretty much every piece of equipment published.  Maybe adding printable equipment cards like this would be useful. All the stats are already there.  Plus, you could even print out customized weapons and armor with all attachment info.

 

I like the format you used.  Clean, simple, easily readable.  The gears are grinding...

I would suggest some sort of symbol, not just the same greenish box, for each of Damage, Encumbrance, Critical, etc. When making my own homebrew cards it made it much simpler to quickly glance at a card and find what you were looking for:

Oggdude I would contribute again if you added an ability to make cards out of gear/armor/weapons AND be able to add your own custom items!!!

 

...and umm, vehicles too? :mellow:

This looks brilliant. I'd love to get involved. I've been making cards for my group using MS Publisher, and some Star Wars fonts I found on the internetz. We all use OggDude's character generator too so an option to create cards of our equipment would be off the scale cool.

Please do share you template.  :)

wow nice.

 

i used to have something similar in another system.

 

one thing that system did was have the encumb figure in the top left corner. then the players could fan them like a hand of playing cards to quickly some up their total encumbrance amount.

Any news on the templates for these cards please?

I see you already found the templates from the thread at https://community.fantasyflightgames.com/topic/91959-the-dearth-presents-npc-vehicles-and-starships-custom-card-template/

I’ve been using that PSD file and creating my own backgrounds for the armor cards I’ve been doing. See my thread at https://community.fantasyflightgames.com/topic/204150-my-work-in-progress-armor-cards/

I can share my background graphics with you, but it would just be a JPEG, PNG, or PDF format file with graphics in it, and wouldn’t be a proper template where you could just fill in text fields.

You would need to take that file and bring it into a graphics editor of some sort, and then put all the other elements on there, including the text.
