I Made a Whole Set of Fan Cards

Rate this Entry
I've been playing with designs for a fan Set for Dark Souls (my favorite game ever) for some time, but when @nutki released a template for filling in Cattlemark's card generator, I knew I could do it. It took a long time to come up with all the stats, abilities, and art [I'm still not satisfied with some characters (Maneater Mildred has some bug with her coloring)], but I did it and I'm incredibly happy with the results overall!

In the end, I made 9 characters from each energy type, 1 new affiliation, 2 non-basic actions, and a full 10 card set of basic actions for a whopping 132 cards (the same as AvX). I fully intend to make a small set of pseudo-OP cards as well, but I'm going to take my time with that. OP's should be the creme de la creme of art and abilities, so I want to make sure they're not rushed.
The only changes I made to the game was calling sidekicks "hollows" for thematic purposes and adding the Lord affiliation which can be noted by a small fire icon underneath the purchasing cost.

Without further ado, here's the fruits of my labor:

If you have any feedback or comments upon how I could balance things a bit or where I could find better art for some of the characters, I'm all ears. I think that I may have made some brash decisions regarding the stats of the Lords, but I think it works out in the end. I'll be getting in contact with the developers of Vassal to see if I can get these cards made into a module to actually be playable, but otherwise, my work here is done.

(Just in case you don't visit the forums, I wanted to make sure you had a chance to see this set and to plug @nutki 's card generator.)

    You've literally laid all the groundwork!
