Card editor...

Recommended Posts

So I just bought Descent: Journey in the Dark and while I was digging around looking at the various house rules and variants that people have come up with I came across a link for the Unofficial Descent Card Editor - which basically allows anyone to make their own variant cards to add to their game in an easy to use format.

My question is why I have never come across such a thing for Twilight Imperium. With all of the talented people on these boards and over at the wiki and all of the wicked variants that people have come up with for this awesome game I can`t believe that something like this hasn`t been created already. Of course it might have been and I just haven`t seen come across it yet. If it has - someone please point me in the right direction - if it hasn`t someone please do this - I would take up the cause myself if I had the technical know how.

Anyway - here is a link to the Descent one if anyone is interested...just some food for thought.

I guess it's more just wishful thinking on my part - I think that it would certainly be awesome to be able to produce new components for TI3, in a fast, easy manner and in such a way that they were indiscernable from the actual components. A pipe dream i know but I'll keep searching for the grail I guess.

To be honest, I'm not sure why someone hasn't tried to do it.  Granted, with a good photoshop/GIMP template, all it would take to make new ACs, PCs, and techs is just entering new text.  Race Cards are a bit more difficult, due to the graphical nature of them, though.

I am sure someone over there can point you in the right direction.

I think it was Grummore who came up with the template for the ACs and PCs.

 

Oh, and Mike_Evans who you guys seem to hate has been able to add to his as well....

What is that supposed to mean exactly? I may not agree with everything Mike says but I've hardly interacted with him enough to have him on an hate list.

Indeed, you'd have to be careful about the cards.  That being said, there have been many variant ACs, PCs, Racial Cards, and Technologies; some playtested more than others, of course, but it is definitely possible to create fair ACs, if you are careful :)

I use Powerpoint to place the text on the blank images of the cards. 

I have recently added the card fronts and backs to my image folder in Mediafire if you want to download the.
