Deck of cards

Post by ancestral » January 24th, 2012, 1:12 pm

I have some plans for these, in time. I’ll likely be able to whip out the whole set in the next day or two.

Ahah, cool :) Although, some card games use colors as a variable (not just kinds), so the diamonds being red and the clubs being black is kina important... So I dunno, although elves fit the clubs symbol, maybe it should be orcs or something, and maybe diamonds should be dwarves or elves? (I rarely if ever play cards in english - I may get some names wrong, sorry)

Very nice.:)
I have seen that the Wesnoth-goods such as Li’sar's T-shirt were for sale (on somewhere linked from wiki). I don't think the project has still being developed, but I expect its return with your cards. (maybe, you involved the project ?)

How about their joker is this one by artisticdude ? :D (just a jest)

I think I'll install these to play solitaire! (Well, as long as the colors end up being right. Otherwise, it will be a little too confusing for some games.)

Well, it's the only mainline card that does... pretty much nothing; it makes sense to make her a special card.... No? Alright. :(

Ohhh, okay, no that makes sense! But if not the Elvish Lady, who then should I make the Elvish Queen? The Shyde?

I am just guessing that:
- you meant Elvish Sylph, instead of Lady, didn't you ?

I think that either Shyde's and Druid's portrait works as the Queen for your cards, but the Shyde is level=3 and the Druid is level=2, so yes, I agree with the Shyde.:)

He meant Joker. Not "Queen of Clubs".
Because Lady is, well, joke character. Shyde would definitely work as Queen of Clubs, though.

Because they match "kinda neutral wild card" status.

I was thinking Sea Orc would be a great choice for the Joker.

Although he doesn't really have a portrait, so that'd be a problem :cry:
