**If the author reads this: please correct filenames to fit the actual ID number of the card. This issue affects ALL decks of "The Game Master's Apprentice".**
I don't know why anyone else hasn't stumbled across this, but the filenames include the number of the card. And those filenames do NOT match the actual number ID printed on the card. That just means confusion when I use them in Fantasy Grounds. Now I roll for a random card, the number was 14 out of 120 possible cards. So I pick up the card with filename GMA Base VTT_Part14.jpg, but if you look at the card, the ID printed in the bottom right hand corner is 110/120. That is definately wrong. To remedy this, I now need to open all image files, look at their printed number on the lower right hand corner and change the corresponding filename. First off, we will see, if any cards are missing and therefore used double. And second of all, I have purchased ALL decks of The Game Master's Apprentice.
Ordered this as part of my search for tarot boosters, such as are used for so called 'magpie' tarot decks, and also after seeing the beautiful artwork of the Page of Swords from this set that was incorprated into the Alleyman Tarot kickstarter. This product is a collection of cleverly designed cards consisting of a 14 card minor arcana suite of Eggs, with several alternates, and a collection of alternate major arcana cards. The art is bright and evocative, and the ideas behind each card are clever and thought provoking. They are cut to a standard 2.75 x 4.75 inches in size, but the cardstock used is as thin as I've seen; they will tear, i found by testing the cover card, but it takes more force than what i give my decks normally. The cards have a somewhat textured feel that is visually noticable- they are more matte than glossy. And it should be noted that the card backs are not all aligned- most have one or two thin white bars along the edges in varying places. The card...
Wonderful reproduction which captures the original deck as closely as possible. Colors are nicely saturated but not dull, and linesare very clean. Great job, I love to see this level of care and attention.
A great Dashboard for Gaslands. Have printed off about 150 of these so far (not all are for me, some will be given to a coworker who is getting the Gaslands Refuled rulebook as a gift for her nephew) in the base Tarot Card size, and 20 scaled up (these larger ones will be used as War Rig Dashboards and Truckasaurus dashboards). The Gear box is perfectly sized to fit a standard sized d6 for trackign what gear your vehicle is currently in.
This is an optional but useful companion product to Interstellar Patrol. It expands on the situations and worlds found there. Note that you're still getting seeds, not fully fleshed-out adventures or worlds. This is good for a low-prep or pickup game.
The plot cards offer a good variety of situations. Each card gives you two brief situations that fit a certain theme, such as Strange Phenomenon or Enemy Action. As an earlier reviewer said, the description font could have been bigger. The adventure fractal icons on the plot cards are unnecessary, so they just take up real estate that could have left room for a bigger font. Each situation description is just a sentence or two, so it's up to you and your group to run with it.
The adventure fractal cards are for those who are following the adventure fractal model described by Ryan Danks. Here's his archived description:
Each adventure fractal card ass...
I was really excited to get this deck because it's the closest thing out there to Pixie's original and the most oldest version found. I like that the box is simple and clean, with very little imagry. The card stock is great for shuffling and will wear well with time. However, the cutting of this deck is absolutely horrible. For the amount of money of this deck, I would expect to have an even border around the cards. That is absolutely not the case here. All the cards are not centered correctly and my High Priestess card is so far to the right that some of the words got cut off. Then theres a huge space to the left that is partially white and then partially a tan color. I'm so disappointed in the lack of care taken to make sure that such an important deck had everything centered and even, was thrown out the window...especially for a total of $40. If I wanted a deck this poorly made, I would have bought a knock-off for $10 off Amazon....
Great PnP game from an independent designer/publisher. Covers some very interesting and obscure (Well, duh) campaigns, both real and hypothetical, from post WW2 to the 1990s. If the stock scenarios are not that interesting for you, you may create your own. The in-depth and well-structured system offers players the opportunity to simulate any land engagement they wish from the Cold War era.
The difficulty is moderate but the game plays really fast. Optional card rules increases replayability value. Besides, the designer seems to update his work and create new content regularly.
These little minis are awesome. Quick and easy prints and add some extra fun to the game-- Love that they have matching character cards. When my kids play 4AD with me they relaly like having minis to put their characters in marching order. WE would like more female characters!
