Action cards (GM & PCs tool)


Product Discussion

Since PF2 design is all about feats and actions, I've been toying with the idea of having different rules cards as aid when GMing or playing the game. Idk, I've always liked Magic The Gathering and similar games, and I like having a deck of cards to reference spells and character abilities instead of a page with all of them cramped together.

So, this is my prototype. I must admit that there's a lot going on there, but i didn't want just plain text inside a black textbox.

Little things I already noticed:

- Not printer friendly (kind of obvious).

- I'm not totally satisfied with the color choices.

- Important information not well highlighted?

My idea is to extend this design to class feats, ancestry feats, skill feats, class features, basic actions, etc.

What do you think needs to change or disappear to be clearer or more intuitive? Comment and critique appreciated.

Oh, that's really cool.

On thing I might suggest is to replace the "20" and "1" for crit success/failure with "+10" and "-10" instead? Easier for new players to remember the new crit rules.

You are right! Changed (and more desgins added)


I can try and find a link that can help print the cards pretty cheap. It was really cheap, something like $8 for some 50-100 cards. I can't remember the exacts. But you cot to choose the yardstick and then if it was in a metal tin. That could be a viable option.

I was looking into this back when I was designing Boon cards for Stqarfinder Society Factions. But I really like the way they look.
