I had no experience with the game,"Magic: The Gathering," but the artwork in the comic captured my attention with books #3 and #4 of the "Path of Vengeance" series. Moreover, I found the writing to be humerous and intelligent enough to compete with the impressive art. The combination has made this my favorite offering at DriveThru Comics.
Just as in those episodes, the characterization, action and evocation of place in "Magic: The Gathering #1" are impressive - especially in view of the many different worlds spanned by the plot. The fantasy cityscapes of Ravnica would be a difficult challenge for any artist, and here are brought to life. Now, I have to read every other issue....
The time my order was placed to the time I received my cards was two weeks.
The color of the printing looks great. I would say the color is within an acceptable tolerance of the original base set cards. I don't sleeve my cards and when added in with the other Class Decks that are all minimally off in color, it becomes indistinguishable.
The registration of print from front to back is slightly misaligned. Not by much in my opinion, but the cards are punched from the back, so that is a good thing. It means that the facedown cards are punched centered to the artwork's border. You want this instead of the other way around. If the cards were punched from the front you would notice the off-registered printing on the cards when they appear face down on the location decks.
The stock is comparable to the base set, and the card die is the same both in dimensions and round corner.
All the card proxies from the Season of the Shackles are represented here; Villains, Henchmen, Monsters,...
As a character creation system, it's brilliant. There are 20 ways to combine 6 approaches taken 3 at a time (without repetition and order doesn't matter). That makes a convenient deck size. The system ensures that all approaches are in the 0-3 range, that there'll be variety in the approaches, and that each character has 3 aspects and 3 stunts. Doling out cards ensures that we'll have a mix of character types.
The character system also strikes a good middle ground between other potential methods for creating one-shot characters. It's less time-consuming and less daunting than having players make up characters from scratch. It gives players some say in their characters instead of handing them pre-made characters.
I've started making custom character decks for various settings. I can fit the necessary information into a business card size. I can make a custom deck with two sheets of business card printer stock.
The situation generator has some decent variety, but not all cards a...

Sadly thos card deck isn't compatible with the actual Mind Eyes Theatre game (MET - The Masquerade).
So you can only use some blood and willpower cards.
If there is an updated versiuon of it, i would buy it at once.
Five Stars Highly recommended.
Combat Patrol is Buck Surdus Opus to WWII miniatures skirmish rules.
To begin your symphony of miniatures violence, you shall require a set of rules and the cards required to play. I purchased both here at Wargame Vault. The download provided a clear set of the rules. The cards came later and were well produced set of playing cards. The delivery time was excellent and they were well packaged. I later purchased a physical set of the rules, which is handy for pre 21st century war gamers, who are still coming to grips with electric toasters and microwave ovens.
The rules PDF comes with everything required to play the game, except the required Action Cards.
There are numerous player aids which can be printed from the PDF, these include explosive templates, flame thrower templates and various cards for unitsis and vehicles.
The system uses a Double Random Activation, a lot of words for throwing the dice 1D6, to create a random number for each...

The style of art is very consistent between images, which is something you don't see a lot of on here (especially in free/pwyw artwork like this). Images are of moderate resolution and are clean enough to be used right away.

Much of the artwork on DMs Guild or DriveThruRPG is tailored to the usual fantasy stuff. Elves, dwarves, and the occasional gnome. Here is a pack of the lesser used goblins, a foe that appears in nearly every fantasy rpg you'll find! High qualiyt scalable vector graphics means you can use these in nearly any game and a very permissive license means you can remix and modify them to your hearts content!

This FAC deck is an excellent investment if you play Shoot-Out Hockey. Using the cards really speeds up the flow of the game as all the results come off the cards rather than having to do chart lookups. And the cards themselves are top notch with rounded corners, thick stock and a smooth finish. A must buy for Shoot-Out Hockey fans!
