Nice reference, I'm glad they changed that card, unfortunately it's more valid than your actual entry, the entry should start a timer or counter on deploy (or when it's played if its an ability card)

3 Days to go and only 3 valid entries. :/
(are the forums super empty right now or does the challenge just suck?)

I'll push the deadline to the 11th.

@mew28 that card doesn't really work, the cards effect needs to happen after a delay, not just every turn.

@Number11 that looks interesting, but I'm not sure if I should allow a delay that can (hypothetically) be postponed indefinitely, I don't mind that the delay can be lengthened and I get that it only has 8 health and the opponent could protect their characters or avoid playing characters etc, I don't want to be picky but I just feel like the delayed effect should be 'inevitable' outside of destroying/removing the card or ending the game.


Also I may extend the deadline for the contest if there's not enough entries in the next couple days.

Sorry if the text is a bit much, only the first few lines are really important, rest was mostly just trying to make people think of different possibilities.

I'll re-write it to hopefully be a bit more clear.

Card Design Challenge – I'll Do It Later

Design a card which triggers a delayed effect once deployed/played.

The card must have an effect that happens X turns after the card is deployed/played.
(like Tome of the Dead or Eaten by Zombies)

The card can have whatever types/stats/abilities/keywords/etc you want.

The delayed effects can be positive or negative. (or both)

The card can have effects that aren't a part of the delay, but it should still have a majority of its effects, or its main effect, triggered by a turn delay or a counter counting down to 0. (or up to X)

The delay can be a static turn count (like tome of the dead) or it can be dynamic (like brief visit to torment).

A dynamic delay can be defined by anything you want when the card is deployed.
(eg the turn delay could be the number of characters in play when the card is played)
Just try to make sure it can't be set to 0 when the card is deployed.
(or at least not unless there are some pretty rare or difficult to set up circumstances)

Are the delayed effects dependent on the card still being in play?
(aka do they still go off if the card is destroyed/removed)
Unless specified I'll assume that 'counters' like tome are dependent, while 'in X turns' is independent.

If the delayed effect is dependent on the card still being in play what happens if it is temporarily removed from the game?
Unless otherwise specified I'll assume the counter is reset.

Can the delay be shortened/lengthened after the card is played?
Sure, just make sure that you can't reduce the delay to 0 on the same turn the card is played or extend the delay indefinitely.
The delayed effect should not be able to happen on the same turn as playing the card and should happen eventually unless the card is destroyed/removed or the game ends.


Deadline is the 11th of July at 7:00am IWT

Since characters stats are reset when removed and returned to the game maybe it should set missions to 0% just for the sake of consistency, but I was thinking the missions could continue where they left off.

I'll probably add a bit of text for it, but if not then just assume it resets to 0.

Memory Seizing Tome

Unique Artifact
2 cost

When you play Memory Seizing Tome remove all Missions owned by the opponent from the game and any enemy Characters that started the turn deployed cannot be moved this turn.
At the start of each turn you may Overcharge a card, if you do not Memory Seizing Tome is destroyed.
When Memory Seizing Tome is destroyed return the removed Missions to the game at the same level of completion as when removed and move any enemy Characters that were in play on the turn this was played to where they should have moved that turn.




Basically take the enemies memories, making them forget what they're supposed to be doing, hold onto the memories for a while, then give them back, tricking them into doing something they probably shouldn't.

The 'movement prevention' triggers during the deploy phase so you do actually get to see where the enemy units moved to, essentially you see the units move, then the ability goes off, then they all move back to where they were at the end of the last turn.

Allows you to not only mess with their missions but also with troop deployment/arrangement, the opponent can destroy the artifact themselves but they do have to keep their unit movement in mind.

Flame Dawn Pyro

Character - Human
Cost: 4
Morale: 6
8/7

Flame Strike 3
When Pyro attacks a defending character it deals half its power (rounded down) in combat damage to the next 2 defending characters and immolates them for 1 damage per turn. ('next' characters are to the right of the card entering combat)


Wave of Fear

Ability - Magic
Cost: 4

When you play Wave of Fear, you may Overcharge it once.
Whenever an enemy character on the battlefield takes damage this turn it gets -2/-0 until the end of the turn and moves to the back of the zone (interrupting multi strike or unstoppable).
If you Overcharged Wave of Fear the damaged enemy characters are moved to the support zone if they have half health or less.

Feed the Masses

Ability
Cost 1

Sacrifice a deployed non-artificial non-spirit character you control and choose X non-artificial non-spirit characters you control where X is the cost of the sacrificed character, the chosen characters get +1/+1 and heal 1 damage.
(You may choose the same unit more than once.)

"Those who have outlived their usefulness are no more valuable than the meat on their bones."



Essentially just lets you use consume effect on non-consume characters, and without needing them to actually kill things in combat.

If you Overcharged Wave of Fear the damaged enemy characters are moved to the support zone if they have half health or less.



Basically the pyros attack is a long stream of fire that doesn't just stop at one character but hits a few enemies (and immolates them) while the pyro only takes damage from one, it can be effective at damaging enemies in the defense zone that are hiding behind a big blocker.

Fear spell is effective at reducing defensive and offensive presence for a turn, including making the enemies multi strike and unstoppable useless (unless they attack a 0 power character), in pure verore it's not too powerful as it's messing with combat, though you can have it stumble attacking characters by dealing some damage to them, so its better in combo with other factions.

With the 2 cards together the pyro sends 3 characters to the back of the defense zone, immolating and debuffing them (if they don't die from the initial attack), possibly stumbling some, allowing the rest of your assault to either stumble some of the defenders and hit the fortress or cycle through the defenders and deal a bunch of damage to them while also taking less damage.

Buff the pyro a bit, add in some ability damage and/or multi strike and the combo can get pretty effective.

The Primal Frenzy Inducer
 
6 cost
6 morale
Unique Character - Demon Beast
10/10

Pay X (min 1), Exhaust: Target deployed non-artificial character gets +3X/+X until the end of the turn, after the combat step it gets -0/-X and enters combat with a random character in the same zone.

"Twisting the body and mind to expose a beings hidden, vicious, primal tendencies can have an extraordinary affect on their capacity for combat...  and a detrimental affect on their self control."



Basically you can give a decent boost to your own units for a turn and if they're 'alone' (or you get them killed that turn) you can avoid the additional combat, or you can target characters in your opponents support (or defense) zone to cause health loss and infighting, although your opponent might move the targeted card to the battlefield.

The more resources you put into it the bigger the boost, but also the bigger the fall in health afterwards, and the more likely you are to kill something else you control, the more you spend on an enemy the more dangerous the risk if they decide to move it to assault.

Was figuring it was ok since if you did try it wouldn't fail or exhaust the card and then not do anything, you would just see that 1 is the min and either accept or cancel, but good point.

The Spirit Channeller
/
Unique Character - Beast
Rare
6 cost
9 morale
6/8

While Spirit Channeller is deployed, it gains an extra life whenever another character you control dies to a non-combat effect your opponent controls.
Spirit Channeller has +2/+1 for each extra life it has.
If Spirit Channeller would be removed from the game it instead loses 1 life.

"Those who were taken by unnatural means are given a second chance, and they give me strength and protection in return."



Basically it's power is relative to how much removal your opponent uses, especially powerful with stuff like mass death, that said it's only 1 character so the opponent may still be better off killing off your other units and of course they do still have ways of dealing with it using things like red tape, humble, hubris or zuza.

Suggestions / Idea for next promotional set
« on: March 23, 2017, 11:16:41 AM »
Over time the fans of this game have hosted quite a large number of card design contests (see Hall of Fame) and we've accumulated a decent number of fan-made cards that many would argue could (or should) exist in the game, without being too out of place.

Imagine if the game devs and/or card designers picked out one or two dozen of their favorite cards and actually put them into the game (with new art and maybe some small tweaks) as a non-ranked non-riftrun promotional set, like the omni and star trek cards.

It'd be really interesting to play with a set of fan-made cards, and not just for the people that designed the cards, everyone would be able to not just see, but interact with, a part of what the fan community has created and from inside the game itself no less.

Not expecting anything, just putting it out there. ;)
