UPDATE:
Found the solution to my problems - someone has made a modded Card Factory, which have what I need!

http://studio.dantoine.org/cards/

I'm currently tinkering with the card-creator, but have some problems, that I can't seem to wrap my head around. Has someone posted a guide somewhere? If so, I can't find it.

Two questions of the top of my head:

1: How do you make "shots" and "range" in the correct font and size? Because the font in "Card Text" is, well, the font used for card text, but shots and ranged seem to have their own font?

2: On town items and class items, how do you add their respective icons on the top right of the card?

Hope to get some help from someone more experienced soon, so I can get my card-creatin' mojo on

I can't really help much with Klutz's Card Factory, but you may be able to use a card generator I made here:
http://jparkerweb.github.io/card-generator-sob/


Here are some art assets you can use to aid in card creation:

My approach to a card generator is a little different and more of an art type of program where you can create text/image elements which you can drag around, change the size/rotation, arrange layers, as well as other properties. It is still an early version, but usable for creating custom cards.

Hope this is of "some" help, or at the minimum an alternative for future use. Oh, and I have only tested it with Chrome so far... so I can't guarantee compatibility with other browsers.

Good luck!

Thanks for the heads up, but for my needs, it's too free-form - great if I wanted to get crazy and creative, but I just need something that does the basics

Update: I've found out that the font I want to use is the Rockwell Condensed Bold, the same which is used, when you enter "stat changes" (the one with the yellow background), but I just can't figure out how to add it to normal text description (without yellow background)

If you can't figure it out you could go the route to getting it "close" in the card factory, save the card, import the created card as an image in my card generator (it would overlay over the default background), then apply the text there (I have the font you need as an option built in).

Just an idea but it could work if you are stuck without a way forward.

You'll probably want to browse the original thread for Klutz's Card Factory.
