Post Fan Set
Not sure what happened to the last thread. Must have gotten purged with all the spam.

Looking to do another fan set similar to what Melon had done in the past. Once finalized, the cards can then be printed with artscow or a similar service.

Please post card ideas here for review and discussion. A smaller set of 54 cards seems manageable and perfect for printing. Breakdown suggestion as follows:

Characters (28 cards)
4 per faction
1 Level one or two
1 Level two or three
1 Level three, four or five
1 Warlord

Actions (13 cards)
3 cards per class + 1 classless
1 Level one or two
1 Level two or three
1 Level four or five

Items (13 cards)
3 cards per class + 1 classless
1 Level two, three or four
1 Level four, five, or six
1 Level seven, eight, nine or ten

Character and action numbers look good to me. I don't know how items were handled previously, but I'd consider changing to 1 level 2-4, 2 level 5-10. I don't recall how often "big" items get used, and it has been way too long since I've played, but I don't recall seeing much played about level 7.

Thanks for the feedback. Open to anything right now, really just need to get card ideas coming in.

You can, if you want, use the 4e Extended blog. I can add authors to it since I don't really use it anymore.
I would offer to help but it's been so long since I played I'm not sure I have any concept of balance anymore.

Will probably take you up on the offer if this gains any traction.

I really like the chosen just as a race(the idea of them), if they could be tweaked to be a bit better to play they could work really well (could be said about everything though I guess)

I vote nuke both and make a Monster faction and then characters from each faction with the Mercenary trait (can be played in any faction).

So are you wanting to build off 4E, build off 4Ex, or start a completely new format?

Aren't the chosen essentially monsters? so they would then have their own faction

No, they're an Egyptian-like human race that worships and summons demons.

I don't think it works for this fan-made addition to the game, but if we were starting fresh, I'd strongly recommend removing Mercs and Chosen and making a Monster faction where you can put your weird creatures. I'd make Mercenary a trait that some characters from all factions have that means they can go into any deck.

Waiting on an answer to the 4E etc. question.

I think a continuation of 4E Extended is the best way to run this project. As a fan set, people can do anything they want with it (4E, 4E Extended, Open, Ancients, etc.) so I am not sure it really matters.

I would personally prefer not to make any major changes. I would be okay with not including The Chosen, but I really don't think any other changes would be good as it seems to remove some legitimacy from the project.

At the end of the day, I someone submits a card and people generally accept it then it works for me.
