It took me a little while to figure out how the gangs were different, because the symbols are all red and there were supposed to be 3 gangs in those 3 pictures. Then I realized I was supposed to be looking at the colour of the clouds, and perhaps the symbol behind each character.
Have you considered moving the symbol to the beige part of the card, to the left of the text box?
First i had a small symbol underneath the white stone just as in reloaded. But because all Fire cards have a slight red tone to them i wanted the different factions to stand out more so i switched to a color/symbol background. I could probably slide the background around a bit to make the symbol a bit more visible.
I originally thought the fan was an influence symbol, but then realized it's the analog of the bullet symbol. Why did you chose a fan? It doesn't strike me as a symbol of fighting/agression.
This kung fu fan (hehe) begs to differ.
No but honestly, i just wanted a pretty basic symbol that was visible with a number on it. A sword/katana just kind of dissapeared behind it. I also like the fan with the rest of the layout.
I have thinking about just having a card symbol instead 'cause that's what it does, let's you draw/redraw cards... But i guess you can fan yourself with cards so a fan isn't that far-fetched?
