Custom Fate Cards
« on: October 12, 2011, 01:14:12 AM »
Whipped these up last night for a game I am going to run with new players to the Fate system.  My thought process was that poker chips are fine for experienced people, but a card with "reminder text" of what fate points can be used for would be helpful.  I am curious what others think.

They look pretty sweet, however they say fuel a stunt when you can also fuel a power. It's only a minor difference and not a very important one though.

Dig em.  Any chance you'll be posting a pdf or image file when you decide you're satisfied with them?

Thanks for the Fuel a Power remark Sinker, I will make that edit. 

As far as sharing a print ready PDF, whats the legality of me (a private individual) sharing something with others that has the DFRPG logo on it?  Would hate to step on any Evil Hat toes.  I enjoy their products too much for that.

I would run the idea past the folks at Evil Hat, and see what they have to say. However looking at the Download section they have for fan-created items (lists, character sheets etc.) it is my opinion that they would not be averse to the cards, and might even put them on the EH/DFRPG site. That said, I would love a print-ready PDF of these cards, as well.

Hrm... copyright legalities...

Well, Evil Hat probably got the art as work-for-hire or at least got the right to remix it in the license agreement, so release your design to them under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license with none, one blue pixel, or whatever specified as the method of attribution.  That way they can release it under any terms they're allowed and you're under no threat from the copyright cops.

From what I've seen Fred is plenty fine with stuff like that so long as people run it by him. Send him an email with a link to this thread and ask him what he thinks.

Thanks all, I will finish my tweeks.  Shoot some email off to Fred and then hopefully share a Print ready PDF for all to enjoy!

Fred got back to me fast!  And it is with his blessing that I share a link to my final high resolution PDF.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I will.  Thanks for all the interest, and if you have any suggestions feel free to drop me a line.

How would people feel about kicking this over to the Resources board?

I'm kinda loath to start a new thread there, but this sure looks like a Resource to me.

Would go nicely as a pinned resource even.

Eh. About half that board deserves to be pinned.

And there's only one page of threads to view. Kinda defeats the point.

Still, that's beside the point. I'll report it.
