Thanks for making me feel welcome guys!
Any chance you'd be willing to show off your game? As a major tcg fan Im very intrested sad that international shipping is so hard Ive always had a pain tradeing cards internationally and I imagine shipping boxes of pavks is even worse. Look forward to chatting with you sometime or maybe having a game or two
welcome to tge club.
Of course, I'd love to show it off at some point but I'm going to wait until I've finished revising the art of all the cards I'm illustrating personally (I set up about 280 PSD files the other day for just that
), plus I haven't finished writing the ability texts of about half of them (I ran out of texts I can alter from the official Chaotic cards long ago). Might take me a few months or a few years, depends how much time I can invest in it. TCG card collecting/making is only a side hobby, my main one is LEGO. But for now I could share some of my invented abilities that may well have been seen in Chaotic in some form had it not been cut short (terms changed slightly to match Chaotic's terminology, you're more than welcome to borrow them for your own custom cards with credit if you want), maybe later I'll show off a completed card complete with terms specific to my TCG:
Absorb X: A Creature with Absorb X gets dealt X less damage by an opponent’s first Attack each combat. Absorb is an Innate Ability and multiple instances are cumulative.
Generate: When a Creature with Generate is defeated during an opponent’s turn, you can return another Creature to play in any open space. Usually you have to return a Creature that doesn’t have the same name as the defeated Creature. Some cards specify which Creatures can be legally returned to play, eg. Generate: Voltron means you can return only a Creature card named ‘Voltron’ to play, or Generate: Danian means you can only return a Danian Creature card to play. Some card abilities can also make Generate work during your own turn. Multiple copies of “Generate” use the least restrictive condition and is otherwise redundant.
Rampage [Build Cost] X: An Innate Ability. A Creature with Rampage deals an additional X damage when it plays an Attack with a Build Cost stated in the ability. Multiple instances of this ability are cumulative.
I also have an idea for a Creature ability that allows the drawing/discarding of Attack cards when said Creature deals damage, but I haven't decided a name or written the rules for that one yet.
My Deviantart (same as my username here, would link but the forum's not having any of it) is the place where I upload some of the artworks I use for the TCG project (one is my avvie), to give you an idea of the "creatures" I mean
As for international trading, it does kinda suck living in the UK, Stop2Shop for example wants $13 to ship a single card or $40 to ship a single booster pack or starter set to me. None of the UK specialist TCG sites like Magic Madhouse or Chaos Cards have any Chaotic in stock sadly
At least the shipping for Stop2Shop caps at $70 there but to make that worthwhile I have to order about $300 of stuff, then I have to pay another 20% customs tax on delivery, hence why I might consider a combo order if I can find enough interested folks from my general area.
Probably hence why I also get great satisfaction making my own TCG cards, I can even buy printable holographic and mirror paper to make my own shinys and from the test prints I've done, they look awesome
As for having a game of Chaotic, definitely maybe. I'll see if I can come up with some decks with the large amount of cards I'm going to receive in the post in a few days first
