      So that's cheese??? Hmmmm ...Must be a abstract drawning. Hahahahaha. Thanks for the updated, look forward to the printing of the Sci-Fi cards. Will even consider the Adventurer's Backpack who knows, what a little practice we may see some wine with that cheese.

      Ah, for the digital ones yes - there's just one thing I need to do to get those ready, and that's make a second printable version for US letter size paper (as opposed to A4)

      Hi, Is there a chance, that fantasy addons will be distributed sooner (once a week when paid in backerkit *wink* *wink*) than SciFi cards?

      @Lisa so are we! We'll discuss which decks to do next with backers once this one is delivered - best not to get ahead of ourselves I feel - but suggestions are always welcome

    6. Lisa Ward on April 13

      So happy to see this funded!
      Look forward to seeing my choice of deck appear!

      Talked with you guys at Nationals. Decided to back the Scifi version of your cards.

      £5200, 52 cards in a deck (barring jokers and the like) - coincidence?

      Yeah, probably.

      @Rico - i have now added the Add Ons section to the front page.

      @Syther Gaming - Thank you!

      @ Niel - Thank you, I have added that to the front page.

      Sorry, I haven't ben keeping on top of comments and whatnot. I should have done this before.

      @Rico you will be able to add the previous, fantasy cards on after the campaign finishes via Backerkit. We're not offering them as an add on during the campaign so we can get a more accurate gauge of how popular the sci fi cards are

    15. Rico - Editor extraordinaire on March 29

      I just found this project. Do you have a webstore where I could purchase the previouse Concept Decks?

    16. Syther Gaming on March 21

      Congratulations on a successfully funded campaign! 

      All the best and I look forward to seeing more of your works!!

      If you want testemonials: I've used Concept Cards for most games I've run over the past few years. The cards give me great prods to my creativity, forcing me out of ruts when I come up with new places, people, or ideas. I mainly use them before sessions, but I've also used them during sessions when I've had to improvise an NPC or location.

      I've run at least one campaign of Tenra Bansho Zero based on a bunch of plots and character ideas drawn from the cards. A Concept Card inspired event has even made its way into an example of play in Blades in the Dark!

      These are excellent cards, well worth the cost, and I'm happy to back more of them.

      A metallic border might be cheaper, but probably still expensive. It could look really good though, so definitely worth talking to printers

    19. Stephen Coffey 7-time creator on March 14

      I'll have to get a costing for that one :-)

      I suspect we'll need to be in the tens of thousands before it becomes feasible - so if you know somewhere that'll like the decks make sure to share :-D

      Since this is sci-fi themed, a stretch goal for upgrading the cards to a shimmering metallic type card face would be awesome, even if it is only on a few cards, such as the one you did for Stephen hawking.

    21. Jeremy Helton on March 13

      We've gone so far off topic it's hilarious, now I'm going to have to pull out my writing hat and toy with that idea.

    22. Stephen Coffey 7-time creator on March 13

      It could make for an interesting hybrid fantasy/sci-fi short story.

      I'm imagining a short story of the ambiguous type, where he has dreams where he's still in the fantasy world being messed with by some mindflayer type creature. So two stories simultaneously, with them interacting through him.

      For a longer story it might end up like the Apprentice Adept series, where both worlds are real but links like Diothaen are rare.

    23. Jeremy Helton on March 13

      I would say he went in for the "experience" and just got sucked in for an unknown amount of time. Maybe something like a stasis pod used for long distance travel that was faulty and recovered by some expedition team after a long period of time.

      Damn, now I feel like I"m writing a story.. LOL

    24. Stephen Coffey 7-time creator on March 13

      Now, did he choose to go in (and forget about it), or was it a strange experiment from birth?

    25. Jeremy Helton on March 13

      I can see it now, Diothaen's entire life was just some Matrix-esque existence running as a background program on a VR platform.

    26. Stephen Coffey 7-time creator on March 13

      After the ontological argument for chickens I'm not sure we can top the previous Diothaen cards - but we'll try :-D

      The immediate thought is: is this the same Diothaen, emerging from a VR console where he's experienced dozens of lifetimes in a fantasy realm?

    27. Missing avatar

      Loz Hensel Collaborator on March 13

      @Jeremy, I'm sure Diothaen can wander where he pleases, he wouldn't be constrained by something so mundane as *genre!*

      And thank you!

    28. Jeremy Helton on March 13

      I also Just realized that I'm backing a 5th creation by you guys.. Good Work

    29. Jeremy Helton on March 13

      It's time for Diothaen in space... You ready for it Ste?
