Mal's Forum Card Templates

Postby Malcadon » Wednesday June 18th, 2014 4:33am

The following templates can be used to make fancy looking HeroQuest cards. Each code is a blank template that can be filled out to the desire of the user using them. If you use them enough, you can easily save them on a Word Pad file for quick copy and paste jobs. (Don't forget to replace the "Place [whatever] here." text with proper entries)

(shame there are no HQ-based fonts here, as they would look great in the headers)

I hope you guys find this useful? Enjoy! |_P

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The first one is for custom Hero cards. The stat numbers are hard to find in all the code and text, so after finding "2d6", run across the text to find 1, 2, 3 and 4, then change them to your desired scores (otherwise, find the number right before "size=200"). 1 = Attack Dice, 2 = Defense Dice, 3 = Body Points and 4 = Mind Points. (Yes, you can alter the movement dice and gear too.)

Code: Select all
[table border=1 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 width=40% height=50px][tr][td align=center valign=middle bordercolor=#666666 bgcolor=#FFCBA4][align=center][size=200][font=Romic][b][i]Hero's Name Here[/i][/b][/font][/size]
[img]Place_address_of_pic_here.[/img]
[i]Place fluff text here.[/i][/align][/td][/tr][/table][table border=1 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 width=40% height=50px][tr][td align=center valign=middle bordercolor=#666666 bgcolor=#FFCBA4][b]Movement[/b][/td][td align=center valign=middle bordercolor=#666666 bgcolor=#FFCBA4][b]Attack Dice[/b][/td][td align=center valign=middle bordercolor=#666666 bgcolor=#FFCBA4][b]Defense Dice[/b][/td][td align=center valign=middle bordercolor=#666666 bgcolor=#FFCBA4][b]Body Points[/b][/td][td align=center valign=middle bordercolor=#666666 bgcolor=#FFCBA4][b]Mind Points[/b][/td][/tr][tr][td align=center valign=middle bordercolor=#666666 bgcolor=#FFCBA4][size=200]2d6[/size][/td][td align=center valign=middle bordercolor=#666666 bgcolor=#FFCBA4][size=200]1[/size][/td][td align=center valign=middle bordercolor=#666666 bgcolor=#FFCBA4][size=200]2[/size][/td][td align=center valign=middle bordercolor=#666666 bgcolor=#FFCBA4][size=200]3[/size][/td][td align=center valign=middle bordercolor=#666666 bgcolor=#FFCBA4][size=200]4[/size][/td][/tr][/table][table border=1 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 width=40% height=50px][tr][td align=left bordercolor=#666666 bgcolor=#FFCBA4][b]Starting Weapons:[/b] sword
[b]Starting Armor:[/b] None[/td][/tr][/table]


Here is how it looks unaltered:

Hero's Name Here
[img]Place_address_of_pic_here.[/img]
Place fluff text here.
MovementAttack DiceDefense DiceBody PointsMind Points
2d61234
Starting Weapons: sword
Starting Armor: None


This is used for added rules or Special Notes (for anything, really):

Code: Select all
[table border=1 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 width=40% height=50px][tr][td align=left valign=middle bordercolor=#666666 bgcolor=#FFCBA4][align=center][font=Romic][b][i]Place Topic Here[/i][/b][/font][/align]
Place text here.
[/td][/tr][/table]


No code sample:

Place Topic Here

Place text here.

I'm talking about built-in fonts on this forum. That is, a code to wrap text round so I can change the font.

Example:
Code: Select all
[font=clairvaux]A Fancy Title[/font]

Understand now.
BBcode is not that capable. As much as I know, there is a variant of BBCode that has a [HTML] tag, allowing inline HTML (which in turn would include the <font> attribute, plus a better table constructing system). But it's not implementet at the inn.
Have a look ;)

This might be possible. I'll look into it.

Is it not possible to store the fonts on the server and load them in to the page with css using font-face?

That way everyone would see the fonts, even if they don't have the font installed on their computer.

If you mean, taller than wider, that would not be an issue if you add a picture to it — a picture automatically makes it taller.

If you mean, wider than taller, that can be done by altering the width codes to a higher percentage ("width=25%" for monster/merc/general, and "width=40%" for hero/notes by default). You'll have to alter more then one code per template, as they are made up of one to three tables each.

The issue I have right now is how to resized pics on this forum. If I had the code, then I would add preset width for the picture slots to give them a bit of margin, like actual HQ cards.
