I've decided to mess around and just make a deck building card game. So far I have a template for cards (which if anyone is interested in, I'll figure out a way to add it into the thread) and a few ideas but I thought it'd be interesting to see if any of you have any ideas for a card or two. For example, I've already made "Karen" as a card so don't take it too seriously. In any case, I'm intrigued to see where this goes and hope some of you help out!
I don't really have a direction as long as it's actual objects. So I can most certainly make a beer card. Ace of Diamonds would be more difficult but maybe a card pack card. And as for a fart.... Well, couldn't I just include you?
Ogre brought up a good point about how I didn't mention what the actual game was about. So far it's just been real objects being reduced down to a few abilities (like Atk and Def) and it'd be centered around two players trying to damage their opponent. So there's be item cards as well. If anyone is at all familiar, it's a hybrid between Magic and Inscryption but with a more grounded/modern approach to it.
Sure, why not. I'll change the name around some so it's not a complete rip off but I'll add it in. Maybe simply Prejudice would do and it increases damage dealt to all cards of a single type.
Incite Hatred is probably a better name.
That's true. And it still works with the idea I had brewing. This'll be fun.
SPEAK HIS NAME AND HE WILL APPEAR
I will definitely add this.
I'm not exactly sure which way you're going with this, but I know you probably saw some of the Illuminati cards from that game that I posted in the discord. I'd advise looking at a few of those for ideas since that game probably had the more humorous approach to various concepts.
In keeping with that game's approach, here's more stuff, though I'm keeping it slightly internet related.
Most Normal Thing Ever
Trolling for a better Tomorrow
Department of Degeneracy
Great Firewall of China
Alphabet Squad Unite!
Crusaders for Wholesomeness
Plague of Pepes
Doxxing for Dollars
Hell, I could go on with these really, but you get the idea.
Yeah, I saw those. I'm going a slightly more serious route (but not by much). I'm not clever enough to pull that off. However, I am definitely gonna use some of these as at the very least inspiration. Figuring out how the game is actually going to work but Darkweb Market has given me more than a few ideas.
Actually upon thinking about traits, here's a list of potential opposing ones you could give to certain cards. Not all cards need a trait of course, while others could have multiple traits. (Just not two that oppose each other)
Based vs. Woke
Wholesome vs. Degenerate
Orderly vs. Chaotic
Mind Goblin- Chaotic Fantasy
Karen- Citizen Degenerate
Fast Food Employee- Citizen Worker (Maybe Worker vs. Managament?)
I'm remembering the opposing traits from the other game they had:
Liberal vs Conservative (This one is pretty much Woke vs Based)
Weird vs Straight (This one is sort of Degenerate vs Wholesome)
Peaceful vs Violent
Government vs Corporate
Criminal (No opposing trait for some reason. Not sure why they didn't have "Law" for the opposing)
Fanatic (The idea with this one was EVERY card that had this trait were opposed to other cards with the fanatic trait)
I sort of came up with the Zealous trait with the Fanatic one in mind.
Peaceful vs Violent isn't a bad one. Gov vs Corporate would be a bit weird now since I'm starting to see those two work together more often than not. Criminal vs Law would make sense but I think Chaotic already fills that role. Fanatic vs. Zealot would is a good addition.
