Spell Cards

Post by Julien » Thu Feb 18, 2021 4:54 pm

I have been having a play with a RPG cards generator to create some cards for sorcerer spells.
The book icon at the top right corner is the stamina cost.

Any feedback about the layout?

Looks great! Nice and clear and easy to read from what I can see.

Only other thing I thought of was maybe you could put the spell name in big letters on the dragon's fire of the cardback so you can find the right card no matter which side is currently up?
I don't know if the card generator lets you do that.

Thanks!
Another option would be to drop the picture on the back cover.
I could then have the front cover with stats and the back cover with description of spell?

Here is my last attempt with basic info at the front and full info at the back of the card.

I have now come up with 9 cards with a few cosmetic changes compared to the previous post.

Just realised that the pictures I sent are a bit blurry. Hopefully these ones are better quality.

This time I removed the full description from the back to replace it with John Blanche’s artwork.
