I was working on another Environment when I suddenly had to make this. It actually works pretty well, but it is nasty.

Someday my computer will be fixed, but until then no images.

4 R.O.U.S. [8]

At the End of the Environment turn this card deals the Target with the second highest HP (H) Melee damage.
“Rodents of unusual size, I don’t think they exist.” Tachyon

3 Lightning Sand

At the start of every hero turn destroy one of the current hero’s cards or deal that hero 3 irreducible melee damage.
At the start of the Environment turn deal the lowest hp villain target 3 irreducible melee damage, then destroy this card.
When this card destroys a card that card is removed from the game.
“The fire swamp certainly keeps you on your toes.” Wraith,


3 Flame Spurts

At the End of the Environment turn the hero with the most cards in hand must discard 2 cards or this card deals them (H) fire damage.
“Singed a bit were you?” Ra

3 The trees are quite lovely. . .

Reduce damage dealt by non-environment targets by 1. At the Start of the Environment turn each target regains 1hp.
“I’m not saying I’d want to build a summer house here.” Bunker

2 We’ll never survive. . ..

Destroy one non-character card from every deck but the environment deck.
Play the top 2 cards of the environment deck.
Destroy this card.
“Nonsense, you’re just saying that because no one ever has.” Legacy

Re: Custo Joke Environment: The Fire Swamp.
I HATE you.

But only because I should have thought of this myself!

Pedantic: Does Lightning Sand destroy itself, and if so, would it take itself out of the game? You could argue that once the card is destroyed its "when this card destroys" text is then null and void, but I'd counter that once the card is in play all cards are subject to this condition. It's one of the classic blunders! Never argue with a rules lawyer when matters of timing are on the line!

Perhaps use the phrase "place this card in the environment trash" instead of destroy to prevent ambiguity?

Re: Custo Joke Environment: The Fire Swamp.
It is intended to remove itself from the game, mostly because it is insanely powerful.

I think we need to design a whole Princess Bride expansion now. I kind of feel like Buttercup should be some sort of special card though, rather than a hero. Any thoughts?

If anyone wants a print-and-play option, I threw together some quick cards, without now with looted art that is most definitely not mine, that you can get from my Google drive. The original XCF file, usable by The Gimp, is also located there.

This is so much fun, Phantaskippy. I love it. Is the art your own?

Lightning Sand needs a wording change, though, as removing cards from the game can potentially derail the whole thing. The Organization, for example, can become unbeatable if too many underbosses get caught in the sand before the Chairman flips.

If you're asking about the cards in the post immediately above yours, the art is most definitely looted.

Ahh, yes - that was your file, sorry. Looted from whence, if you don't mind me asking?

In no particular order:

http://palnk.deviantart.com/art/Fire-Swamp-155862818
http://geektyrant.com/news/2013/1/7/the-princess-bride-fire-...
http://zealousceles.deviantart.com/art/Lightning-Sand-189752...
http://kistinradisay.blogspot.ca/ for the card back.

Having difficulty locating the image for The Trees Are Lovely again.

The R.O.U.S. is a screen grab from the movie, passed haphazardly through a filter, and it is terrible.

Yes, the ROUS is bad. I thought about changing the We will Survive to the following:

and using the image currently on that card for the ROUS.

When I open your Google drive and try and download ROUS from the download icon, it keeps telling me that the owner hasn't given permission to proceed with the download

Strange. The Google is telling me that the file, indeed the entire directory, is open to anyone with the link. I've changed the setting and then changed it back. Hopefully that will kickstart it and allow you to download the ROUS.

Hmm, it's still giving me the same error. I went ahead and just right clicked and saved the image that way. Excited to try these out!

I've updated the card images and the source file. The source now uses Layer Groups (not available in The Gimp when I started this originally), which makes things a lot easier. I've also adjusted the font sizes a touch, increasing the size in the hopes that they better match the official cards formatting better.
