Why bother taking part in this conversation or even this forum if you don't actually intend to listen to what anyone else has to say?

Re: roadblock cards

Any player can interpret the rules any way he or she wants, but it doesn't mean anyone else will play with them. The purpose of this forum, rules gurus like Konrad, and the extensively-documented democratic protocol for proposing and passing rules errata and clarifications is to create a common mean...

Re: Cave Troll: Balrog Specific?

it has the Balrog-specific border color. I believe you are conflating a difference in print quality/color control between sets with an intended difference in the border itself. See some of the discussion in this thread, http://www.councilofelrond.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=3603&start=30. , for ...

I'd spent some time imagining a White Mithril variant that involves cooperative play:

Re: Promo cards and misprints

Huh, it's missing the quatrefoil design which normally sits at the bottom of the lefthand bar, below where the mind and DI stats appear.

Re: Updating Magic Set Editor

On a completely different note, one thing that's always bugged me about the design is the slight overlap of the artwork with the frame in the upper left-hand corner. I find it slightly jarring that the artwork sits in front of the frame, which seems to be accentuated in your remastered versions. Was...

Re: Updating Magic Set Editor

I vote for color option on the right, represented by the Black Horse card. My reasoning is that more contrast is generally better, which in this case is the option that is furthest from the dark gray color of hazards.

Re: Updating Magic Set Editor

I agree that a touch more purple (i.e. more red) would be good. Also, have you tried giving the frame a bit of texture? It seems to me that the original cards have a bit of texture to the minion frame, as though the metal were pitted a bit with corrosion (the way old wrought iron looks, sort of).

Re: Updating Magic Set Editor

I think the man-lord templates are meant to evoke a corroded metal, perhaps, but not corrupted to the extent of the minion template. They also have a bit of an Atlantis feel to them, it seems, maybe kind of playing off the Numenor legacy. For the war-lords, I'm not sure. I kind of think they might b...
