I'm planning on setting up a number of quick reference cards for this game, but I'd like input to make sure they're as useful as they can be. I opted for some extra theme with these, so instead of simply a log of information, I thought I'd have the player be a patient.


The information on this page is tied to the player and character they are playing. It's taken from the Campaign Log.


I took the Night of the Zealots campaign and turned it into a psychiatrist's notes about the ramblings of the player. It gives the scenarios and their order, as well as space for some minor notes.


I grabbed the icons from the newly uploaded rulebook and put them onto a single card, far easier to pack in with the deck. I'm not 100% happy with this one, but it works.


I'm least happy with this one, but I feel it's the most useful to the player turn to turn. I'm trying to think of a better way to lay this one out and tie it to the theme of the rest.

Very open to comments, suggestions, criticisms, praise, etc. I will be posting these in 9-up sheets for better usage, but for now, consider them works in progress.

Great job - can you provide a font with all the icons?

Looks pretty good so far. I do see that on the card with the actions that the Engage action lists it as "Engage and enemy" instead of an.

I also think that it would be helpful to include a reminder about the free actions, the ones you can use/activate if they have that symbol on them.

Thanks for doing this, I'm sure it will be a big help.

I don't have one. I edited those from the rulebook.

Thought I'd fixed that. Apparently not. This is why we check before putting up files!

You mean the arrow, reaction, and lightning bolt? Good idea.

No, no. The pimping started when I started making my own Chaos Token bags.

At least I know you read the cards!

I added the three Triggered Action icons, and I spaced the Phases a bit more to use more of the box.



I changed the theme to reflect what the "patient" is showing they can do. I don't think there are any typos or extra characters in this version.

I like the handwritten one, I feel it fits the theme of the cards more, but it's obviously not as easily read. I'm also not a huge fan of the "1" character.

If you can find space for it, you could word the triggered abilities something like this:
Action (icon): 3 x turn
Reaction (icon): 1 x trigger (x card?)
Free (icon): (infinite symbol)

Actually I'd choose either '3/turn' or '3 x turn'. I think '3x / turn' is a bit confusing XD
Other than that, nice work!

I get what you mean. I was going for a "3 times each turn", but "3 each turn" works too.
