I am looking for someone to help me turn my fan expansion into printable cards, similar to what Alias did here. Even if you don't have time to do all of it, any little help would be appreciated. If someone can give me card templates, I could try to work with them in PS/GIMP/Paint.net.

To be clear: we don't need the art (through I am not going to say no if somebody offers!), but simply, card templates. I think I can find art online to insert into pictures (hopefully with artist permissions). What I need is the SR-style card templates into which I can insert text and said pictures. For my current expansion, just the Black Market templates are needed.

This should be easy. We just need templates for black market cards in the basic four colors, plus the font package that resembles the SR cards (hopefully this will do). I'd think that the templates can be easily extracted by cleaning the card scans (erasing their texts and pictures); I can scan them, but the ones from the following links are probably enough:
* http://www.shadowruntabletop.com/2013/07/crossfire-why-i-lik...
* http://www.shadowruntabletop.com/2013/08/crossfire-not-in-th...
* http://www.shadowruntabletop.com/2013/11/crossfire-decking-w...
* http://www.shadowruntabletop.com/2013/12/crossfire-mage-in-t...
* https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1202541/another-early-revie...
* UPDATE: I didn't realize most of the above where using the beta card layout. Fortunately, we have, in the file section here, official high res pdf with crossfire demo cards, those will do quite well I think

Once we have the templates, others can use them more easily for their fan made cards, too! So, can anyone create the template files we need?

(PS. I did PM Alias about his templates but he seems inactive for several weeks...).

Interesting. I looked at black.psd (in GIMP, and keep in mind I am an n00b in graphics editing).

I am curious about:
* fonts you are using (did I find the correct ones above)?
* do you have the damage symbols / no damage ? I see only the special damage star. We also need a no damage line, four colored symbols, and the 1 through, hmmm 3/4 box options.
* the black market cards have a "blood splat" in the top left that I don't see on your template
* do you have the assist box?

What I'd love would be templates in all colors, in normal/assist variants, and with some way to easily add damage symbols to them (through I think even I can do it with some copy paste).

I like GIMP for image editing, but for this type of "desktop publishing" I prefer Inkscape or Scribus. I believe both have windows versions.

I feel they offer finer control over alignment and type-setting.

Those Templates are awesome though!!
