Dédales must have some kind of ultrafreaky HQ Link database on his PC. I was always wondering how he manages to constantly remember similar topics and deliver high quality postings. Now we know. He is human. He has a database. It is actually possible that the database is not up to date. That makes him less HQ godlike and more like us. Phew. :D

I am currently working on Slev's huge potion collection. I love his system but I love it even more if it keeps a maximum of compatibility with Base HQ. So I am translating his potion card in my own HQ language and format. Slev's System is very clean as he tagged all abilities and cards with a lot of words you can reference to on other cards or in the rulebook. You have a buddy who likes to discuss a formulation? Slev can update that rule centrally in the rulebook. Very elegant.

I prefer to have the rules on the card, so that you can read everything you need directly on your hand, without cross referencing. That will be the hell for me if we discover a failure, but for me this is part of the beauty of the HQ game system. Additionally, I translate the card size to Zombicide card sizes, so I can reuse the dashboard of Zombicide. That means I have a lot of space less and I need to shorten and simplify the more complicated cards. Which is good for the game, I think.

But it is a lot of work! A lot of work! Slev's System is beautiful, and it is big!

I've seen that somewhere else. Oh wait...
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jgj0kzsys9w38oh/AAA_VEHx6vMv4HKRX7IiOWTFa?dl=0
But seriously, I plan on reeeally sifting through Slev's stuff in detail soon, to ... ahem, derive... (i.e. steal) what I like better in his system than in mine.
I need more diverse card ideas and am thinking why try to invent everything new from scratch when there's someone out there thinking very similar to myself with his own system which has been playtested...
So I need to do the same as you, Anderas, translate what I like into my own semantics and syntax.
Another interesting project.

I will upload the photoshop files once finished so you can reuse a word here or there. :D

You will have to put up with my format, though: 1.73 inch x 2.45 inch, which is Zombicide size. Only my spells will be bigger.

All my cards are just a little bigger: 4.45x6.35 cm
I can then easily see if wording changes from me fit my cards, that's a nice perk.
Other than that, I'm now pretty comfortable at photoshopping cards thanks to you and Dean Laxer, artist and my best friend.

Okay, thought that topic had been moved, but apparently not. I just moved it to this room: Cloud of Chaos question
