Custom Card Creator

Posted by Crafty Games (Creator)

We've been working with our friends over at DriveThruCards to see if there's a way we can offer you the opportunity to make your own custom cards for Mistborn: House War.

The idea is that we'll provide some assets and a structure; you'll provide the rest.

Want to make a custom card for that special Mistborn fan in your life? Not only would this Card Creator make that possible, but DriveThruCards will print and ship you actual cards for you to use during play.

In addition, while you can make your cards private, you will also be able to share them with the community right on DriveThruCards so that other people can enjoy your creations.

This is a Social Stretch Goal: When we reach 2,500 backers we'll get started making the Mistborn: House War Card Creator a reality.

      @Hero - we will be working with our friends at DriveThruCards to make as close a match as possible, but there are bound to be some differences due solely to the fact of font-licensing (we have an excellent substitute, but it is a substitute), factories, and POD vs. offset printing. Likely, the biggest difference is the DTC cards will not have the linen finish we funded on the main cards is not currently an option with the DTC cards. Using sleeves of some species is probably a good idea if only to protect your creations!

      @Crafty: I'm curious, do you know how closely the custom cards will match the texture and ink-color of the mass-produced cards? It won't matter for me personally, since I plan on using the card sleeves, but I could see people who choose not to get the sleeves getting disappointed.

      House Heron incoming? :P

      Sweet, that's a lot cheaper than what I was thinking/dreading.

    5. Crafty Games 2-time creator on

      Probably about $0.50 per card. Not 100% sure, yet.

      I agree with the other comments. Super awesome.

      Do you know what the costs will be like for ordering custom cards?

      Now I'm imagining a couple of fun cosmere time- and world-hops that you could do with this. We could bring Wax and Wayne into the Final Empire. Or Kaladin, Susebron, Raoden Khrissala or Nazh... This could get really interesting

      @Crafty - Quick question. Which cards would we be able to make with this? Personalities, Problems, Houses? (Cos being able to make proper cards for some of the custom houses from my MAG campaign would be so cool.)

      0_o, Ok, that's awesome. We need some more backers asap :)

      @Michael - that was the center of the original idea :) We fully expect people to do picture swaps for named characters, to fold in their own ideas, or revise stuff as they see fit.

      Oh, man! I could add characters from my gaming group's Mistborn RPG sessions!

      Well that's pretty cool. 17S is gonna go nuts for this one.
