VTES Creations

I've been creating a lot of cards recently. Seems to be the 'passion' of the moment. At any rate, Blogger isn't very elegant for uploading and storing the many image files that publishing these things for public comment requires. A little while ago I built a Google page to do just that sort of thing. So here it is.


For others who are interested, there is a link to a relatively recent version of my own RPG d20-style system that might get finished soon (it's already 3 years since I started) but then again might not. I'm at the slow part where I am creating magic items, bit by bit, and magical armour and spells... many spells to create yet to appropriately fill out the different magic levels to make them all worth taking. I think the core of the game is there and solid, but its those kinds of details that take so much time and realistically need to be completed before you can satisfactorily playtest them. Can't have Wizard V Barbarian if the Wizard doesn't have the spells.

Crypt Ideas - King Snake & Mama Lion

Card Idea - The Madmen

Here are two card ideas, Inyor @ the VEKN Forum basically drafted this idea and I think these are reasonable attempts at getting his idea into a playable reality.

Kindred Madmen

Karl, Lord of the Madness
(Named after Karl Jung of course)

Card Idea - Chopper

This one really caught my eye... and the only amendment I wanted to make to it was the ability to grab a non-unique weapon to go with the brand new bike.

Card Idea - Hive of Scum and Villainy

Here's another card that I've knocked up after a discussion on the VEKN Forum.

Card Idea - The Right Tool for the Right Job

After some of the thoughts here...

I went trawling through various places online (such as www.epilogue.net) for artwork to create...

Deck - Wall of Birds

I'm not a particularly strong Gangrel player, so this deck is in part to force me to play more Gangrel and also to push my ability to play Gangrel better.

I'm keen to hear feedback about this.

Deck Name : Wall of Birds
Author : Juggernaut1981
Description :
This is intended to be a Wall Deck based around Animalism retainers, mixed Animalism/Protean combat and classic grinding cards (Jack, Antediluvian, Army of Rats, Anarch Revolt). I'm not planning to go anarch with the deck but wear the grind on my pool through the Blood Dolls. I'll probably try to set it up as strongly-forward blocking as I can manage.

Deck Idea - Duelling Banjokos

Deck Name : Duelling Banjokos
Author : Juggernaut1981
Description :
Black Hand Disciplineless Deck
It's more wall-ish and less outright bleed. Part of the plan is to grind away blood from your prey by Dominion and multiple actions. Other people swear by Nicomedes but I feel a touch ambivalent but since this is a disciplineless deck it seems reasonable to include him.
