4eX 58 - Error fixing


So there were some errors on the Aftermath set. I have endeavored to fix them. As of now, all of the errors I know of are fixed. The cards in the Box download area are replaced with fixed versions and the artscow pages are fixed.

Brother sterrance and Debris gargoyle both had text that didn't really make sense, so I reworded them to do what they were supposed to do.

Teka had a horrible picture error that has been fixed.

Karem tansiq and The world had incorrect or missing artist information

Gauntlets of Power, Stance of Vengeance and Wand of the Earth had art that was already in 4E and was thusly replaced.

Here is a list of the fixes with links for those that want to re-download them:

Teka - Picture fixed -
The Wolf - Artist added -
Brother Sterrance - Errata to his ability -
Debris gargoyle - Errata to his ability -
Karem Tansiq - Artist added -
Gauntlets of Power - Picture changed -
Stance of Vengeance - Picture changed -
Wand of the Earth - Picture changed -

Also, on the artscow front, besides the above fixes, 3 cards were not sized correctly: Contingencies, Forsake Riches and Honorless. Here is a Fixed card option for those of you who already ordered some and would like to replace the incorrect cards. This link does NOT have The Wolf or Karem Tansiq on it, but has 6 each of teka, brother sterrance, debris gargoyle, gauntlets of power, stance of vengeance, wand of the earth, honorless, forsake riches and contingencies.
Fixed cards:

One last thing: The free shipping from artscow expires on the 24th. They may offer other free shipping opportunities in the future or not. I have no idea.

If any of the my fixes turn out to not be fixed, please inform me asap o.o

image errors

So I said that was the last time I would update things but apparently I was wrong =)
Someone pointed out a major image error with Teka. Not sure how I and everyone else missed it (It was on like the 3rd blog post @_@)

Anyway, I had to fix it and while I was at it I noticed some minor image errors on some other cards. Most of the errors would not really be noticeable on the actual cards but they can be seen when looking at the images zoomed it.

None of these changes effect the text or gameplay of the cards, for those of you who have already printed some out. They are solely contained within the image area and most of them would probably not have been noticed. Teka would have been though, it was pretty major.

Printing @ Artscow


So for any of you guys wanting to print out cards at artscow, I have taken the time to set up the entire set and share the links. The set up time can be kind of time consuming, and confusing if you've never done it before.  Anyway, in the downloads section there is now a Print section at the bottom. Just follow the links and add them to your cart.

A deck of 54 cards is 10 dollars. a Set of cards consists of 3 decks (146 cards in the set). There were 8 left over slots, so I filled them with summon characters that I thought would be the most numerous.

If your order is over 20 dollars you can use the Shipped20 coupon for free shipping. Although that expires soon. Check the home page of artscow for other coupons when it expires I guess.  The only problem with Arts cow is that without the free shipping, shipping costs can add up quick. However, I have not found a better, more user friendly place to print and the quality of the halloween cards was good.

Also, while I did order a set to check on quality, it has not arrived yet. Actually it's still processing. I suspect they are busy for the holidays so orders may take longer now than normal.  I expect the quality to be good based on the halloween promo's, but if you want to wait until I get my order in, I will announce when I do and if it's all good.

I have read several comments about summon characters "After entering play from your hand" abilities and thought I would talk about it, to clear up some misconceptions.

When I started making summon characters, I had two options. Make them as playable only by summons or make them playable as normal and also be summoned. The conflict there is that a character you want in your deck will be more powerful than a character that is generated by an action. In general, most summoned characters don't have abilities, or have very limited abilities.

I did not want to make purely token characters if they were to be printed. It felt like a waste and kind of a cheat for the players, buying cards that are only useable via another card. So I decided to give characters, that were originally token characters, abilities that would only be available if played from your hand (IE, were in your deck) that way giving them a use outside of being summoned, but not making them more powerful than they should be when summoned.

Not all are like that, it's primarily level 1 characters. Bear for example, is the same whether summoned or not. However, it is much more difficult to have 10 bears in play than it is to have 10 skeleton warriors or mummy's in play.

4eX-Aftermath-Finished @_@

So, yesterday had the final previews of my first fan-based extension to warlord. It was a lot more work than I expected =)  And I know it took a lot longer than most of you would have liked. I think I mentioned it before, but I wasn't actually ready when I announced, it just seemed like the right moment and if I waited any longer the game might have completely died off.  So anyway, some things:

1) The downloads section is complete for Aftermath, I added items and re-uploaded all the previous files. So anyone who downloaded them before, please do so again as many cards had typos that had to be fixed. I hope everything is okay now, but there is always room for error.

2) I will have some artscow links available soon, for the playset. I will not be making faction sets or class sets. For anyone who chooses to make their own sets, using the PNG files in the download section, I have zoomed out twice on each picture to get the right size in the non-bleed area. I zoomed out 4 times on the halloween stuff and it was a bit small.

3) I am planning on doing more sets in the future. Future sets will be 54 card expansions. What this means is that not all classes and levels per faction will be represented like they are in larger sets. All factions and classes will be represented in total though. (For example, Deverenians might simply find they get non level 1's and no wizards in an expansion. What this also means is that Warlords will not be released in every expansion. I am planning on every other expansion atm.  I am not sure when the next expansion will be ready. 3-4 months most likely. I will not do the super long preview period again. Since the set is smaller and a lot of the groundwork I had to create this time is already there, I plan on things going much more smoothly in the future.

4) I made a logo for Aftermath. It's conversion to tiny is not so good and I made it quickly, but whatever. It's something ^_^
