It's 07:18 on Saturday morning. Why am I up and writing? Because my office is getting a deep clean today, and as the London North Area's Facilities Manager (as well as Payroll Support) it's my job to make sure it goes without a hitch.
But regardless of why I am up, I am and I'd like to share with you my idea to further augment MaliQuest:
So one of the issues I currently have is how to allow players to expand/complicate their games without over complicating the core rules.
I mentioned a few days ago about the first expansion: The Paths of Fate. Well now I would like to introduce you to another idea: The (I don't have a name for it yet) Expansion Decks!
So currently I'm working on the basic core game deck, the Essentials so to speak. It has all the basic weapons and gear you would expect plus a few spells here and there to keep things interesting.
I have mentioned before to people that something I want would be for players to suggest ideas for cards, and this is where that is going.
My plans in the months to come is to release further decks, they may be comedy theme decks, horror theme decks, future-Sci Fi decks, high fantasy decks etc.
The idea behind is that (ideally) you could use these decks in place of the Essentials Deck, or if you so wanted you could make your own deck selection by mixing and matching any loot cards you wanted.
To give an idea, currently I am at 81 unique cards for the Essentials, when it goes to print that will work out as much more (currently each card represents x1, but at print each Common will be x4), so as it currently stands GMs will probably want to remove some of the cards already.
Anyway, I think this concept really speaks for itself, and if you have any suggestions please let me know.
By the way, I have it on good faith that my interview 'should' be released today. If so expect my big Card Reveal later!
Stay safe and I'll see you all breachside!
