So... yeah, hi! It's me again. And I've reached the point in my project where I'm comfortable with calling a version 1.0, therefor making it kinda full release.

What is this?
This is a project where I try to overhaul old cards that I find obsolete/overpowered/outdated, etc. The aim is to bring the balance and prosperity to all the cards, while keeping them interesting, viable, and doing my best to stick to their original feel.

Don't let me bore you with too many words just yet, there is plenty of card text ahead!

The artwork alone is worth some of these cards. It's gorgeous...

Funny thing is, I used alternative artwork only in the cases where I couldn't find original one

Original Beekeeper is counter-intuitive because he is hella expensive, possesses a self-removal ability, and his stat box sux major league ballz. Self-removing allies, unless their self-remove effect is mega spectacular, should have inflated stat boxes, not diminished ones.

Small update, mainly fixing of errors and slight wording adjustments. Main spotlight is usability improvements of the optional doom cards.

Excellent work on these! Out of curiosity, did you test the new cards (mainly the core set ones) alongside the older scenarios to see what sort of effect they had? It'd be interesting to know whether any of the older encounter decks become easier or more difficult with some of these changes.

Hi! Thanks for the kind words.
I indeed tested them, however I didn't tested them on core set scenarios with core set cards. I would bet my money, however, that it'll make them less challenging due to how most of the cards received a bump, and most of those quests (except for Escape from Dol Guldur) are already lost all their high challenge value to the nautral card pool growth.

Huge fan of what you have done here! It really spices up cards that have long since been relegated to the binder.

I'm a big fan of cardboard. It looks like these were done in Strange Eons, any chance you have 300ppi images of these cards suitable for printing at artscow/printerstudio etc?

They were done in Photoshop, using GeckoTH's templates. What's 300ppi? I have a higher resoluition versions if you're about that, PM me.
