After finally getting the Maneuver Cards done after about five years of working on them off and on I decided to get moving to the Spell Cards. Like the other cards they are a form that you can fill and print yourself. However since there are so many varieties of spells and what they are capable of doing I only made the Page field permanent. The rest of the cells can be entered by the user. The information panel looks just like the other cards but for the cover I opted for a spell book cover with each College having the same colour represented in GURPS Magic. I also added a symbol for each college.
The symbols are from Game-icons.net I’ve made a card for each college and one set of “Generic” Spell cards. Next up will be Psi cards, Path/Book, Ritual, Syntactic, Symbol, and Wild Magic. All but the Psi cards will probably have to have a different format for the information so they may take a little longer.You can view all the Spell Cards HERE
If you end up using them please send me pictures of your cards!
I’ve finally finished the bulk of the cards needed for use during GURPS combat. This has been an on again/off again project since 2012. The idea comes from the GURPS Combat cards that you can download for free from Warehouse 23. It is a great idea and very useful but I didn’t like the basic design of the cards or the limited amount of information. So I came up with my own version which you can enter your own text then print out for use during game play.
These are great for beginner or pro and if you use miniatures or counters with a hex map it turns the combat into a tactical table top war game. I’ve considered making a play mat to place the cards on, much like you see with Collectable Card Games (CCG).
As you can see from the photos above the cards are printed individually on 6×4 blank note cards. Each pdf has three different variants of the card and are a form which you fill out yourself. Once you have entered the information that you desire to have just print it out on the note card, score (crease) down the centre, glue & fold, press with a heavy object so it dries flat, then just cut the remaining card edge. I recommend a hobby knife rather than a scissors.
Two other pdf forms are in the folder, both are used for NPC’s and Monsters. One is playing card size like the Maneuver Cards but you print it on an A4/U.S. Letter size sheet of card stock. The other is also a 6×4 note card size which you can fill out and store in a standard recipe box. There is a small area where you can upload a picture unto the card as well.
Enjoy! Let me know if you use them, send me links to pictures of your cards! Any suggestions? Ideas for different play aids?
Some one asked if I could make a version of my Monster Cards for 6×4 Note Cards instead. I’m always happy to help if I have the time so here you go folks
I’ve redesigned the cards to Bridge Size (2.25×3.5 inches (56×87 mm)) and I have ordered 200 blank Bridge cards to use in my printer. I’ve asked the GURPS community on Google+ to make any suggestions and to add any Maneuvers not covered in the current GURPS Combat Cards. I’m still working on the Monster cards and I’m unsure if to actually use them or stick with 4×6 note cards.
So I have the new computer and I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of things. One thing I’ve been doing is creating cards for GURPS. I’ve been remaking the GURPS Combat Cards and I’m making some Monster Cards.
I’ve got a bit more work to do and I’m hoping to learn the MSE software to allow anyone to create their own cards with these! If they work out I will be making these cards for personal use.
