Combat cards as alternative to those elusive colored dice!

Postby torilen » Sunday July 5th, 2020 9:29am

So, I put this together and the PDF version is ready. Basically, my take on those colored German dice
that would be so amazingly awesome to have...in card form. The PDF is for sale on DriveThruRPG:

I hope to have actual cards for sale in the future, but I have to get them made and find a site to sell them
through, which could take some effort. I think the PDF print-and-cut-out version could work pretty well, though,
if printed on nice card stock and laminated (or poor-man-laminated with clear packing tape...instructions for this
are in the PDF).

Here are a few pictures from the PDF to give you an idea:

And here are two more pics....the "triple lethal" set, as I have called it.

What I'd say is that it would be better to do this sliiightly different.

You only actually need six card front designs.

Each front has ten coloured squares on it, each with an appropriate image on it.

You then make a number of card backs, to represent each individual dice, to keep the same probabilities.

If you are going to have a different deck for each color dice, why have the plain dice rolls included on any of the cards instead of their own decks?

I'd probably let the white dice have their own deck, but include the coloured dice all on a single deck - I've not seen a system that used two different non-white dice in a single roll. So the face of the card would show results for red, yellow, black, orange, etc, dice all at once and you just look for the colour you were rolling for.
