This weekend my MaliQuest focus has been two fold.
First: Finish cutting out my Loot Deck: Essentials cards.
As you can see, it's big! By my count in fact I make it roughly 250 cards.
But this is everything in the deck, my aim is to encourage people to play with only the cards they want.
For example: when it comes to SkypeQuest, I'll probably remove everything below rare quality (other than mods) which will drastically reduce the deck size and increase the chances of good draws.
But my main focus has been on designing the character cards.
So on Friday I came up with the following:
The aim is to allow for the players to laminate and write in their character name and stats and then mark off when they equip gear.
In addition, the Wound and SoulStone markers work in reverse of those found on Malifaux stat cards. You fill in however many you have, and then as you get hit/use stones, wipe them off the laminate, meaning everyone can have up to 10 Wounds and 8 Stones, but starting with much less.
I've had some feedback and based on that the following v2 was created:
The plan was to de-clutter the card, however as my wife pointed out, now the space for recording stats is drastically reduced.
Something I'll be trying tonight is creating some more cards, the first will have the Head/Gloves cogs moved to be in line with the Torso/Boots cogs.
The second will have all 4 cogs moved to be next to the Wd/SS blocks.
The third version will have the cogs removed all together and replacing them with a manual writing space, thus suggestion came from @Gorbad13, and I am curious to see how it will compare to the others.
I welcome any comments/suggestions. For obvious reasons, my trail of thought is so stuck into wanting there to be cogs, the idea of not having any had not even occurred to me!
Anyway, please excuse me while I take a nap on the way to work.
Stay safe, and I'll see you all breachside!
