So, I have been thinking for a few weeks if this project was doable, worth doing, if it had merit and eventually though it would be a fun thing to work on over next year.
I'm not sure if many of you have played or even heard of the game called Munchkin , it's a card game which runs a little like Dungeons and Dragons, you face monsters, get treasure, wear armour and all that fantasy stuff. My current housemates got me into it over the last months and it's actually quite addictive. The aim of the game is to get to level 10 by fighting monsters, selling loot and other ways, but your "friends" can also throw monsters, curses, challenges or dodgy deals to stop you.
Now, the guys who make the game also make blank cards so you can effectively make your own game. Which also in turn makes a good idea to fit in the setting of whatever you want, say Monster Girl Quest. In the new year I'll be buying a pack and playing around with a few ideas for cards, working out how to allocate the cards and "design" them is another thing, but the cards work out in the following ways.
Classes (Warrior, Cleric, Mage, Rogue)
Monsters (No shortage here)
I'm guessing that I won't be drawing stuff but lifting the game art and sticking onto the cards would be a plan, either that or scan the template in and use Photoshop/Indesign to create them. If you're interested in the normal game, it's pretty easy to get hold of and great to play with the Skyrim soundtrack.
