The Hitler theme makes me really uncomfortable, so inspired by another post here, I made my very own version of Secret Voldemort.

I made everything from scratch using InDesign, however, most of the graphics & artworks are from the internet (Wizengamot logo by kriss80858.deviantart.com, Moody portrait by upthehillart.tumblr.com, Phoenix logo by ??? (let me know), The Dark Mark by ajb3art.deviantart.com and Ministry of Magic logo by kriss80858.deviantart.com). Most texts are taken from the Harry Potter wikia, but their purpose is mostly decorative.

For the identities, I used canonical members of The Order of the Phoenix during the Second Wizarding War; Mad-Eye Moody, Remus Lupin, Albus Dumbledore, Sirius Black, Arthur Weasley, Molly Weasly, Nymphadora Tonks, Kingsley Shakebolt, and Severus Snape. For the Death Eaters, I used Bellatrix Lestrange, Lucius Malfoy and Peter Pettigrew. And of course Voldemort.

There's some potential to make an Avalon version too (especially with Snape as double agent), but I didn't have the time yet to do boards for that.

For the cards, I used sleeves in order to achieve identical sizes.

ID and membership cards are Ultra Pro 84490 Standard Sleeves, Non-Glare, clear matte. Since they are matte, they feel very nice and are much less slippery than regular sleeves.

Decrees are mini euro sleeves are Ultra Pro 82661 Euro Mini Size 44 x 68 mm, so the voting boards are also made to fit that.

For everything else, I used chipboard and linen paper. Allover it turned out very nice (despite having used only an inkjet printer), though the Death Eater board got a bit smeared when I coated it with acrylic. I might do a new version eventually.

wow, I love how you managed to incorporate all the different player counts in one board.

Can you share this in the files section maybe?

Hello...

This looks really great. The thing with Hitler is totally understandable and there I just hit the spot, is there any possibility to get your gamecards somehow? Of course we could talk about something in return...

regards
Simon

Thanks for your comments!

I'd love to share it, but unfortunately there are WAY too many copyright issues here. I took all the artwork and drawings from the internet, which is perfectly fine if I'm the only person to ever use it, but not so much if I share it. (The artist of the Moody portrait was fine with re-using of her art if credited, but I think most of the other artists might not be.)

Eventually, when I find an artist who's willing to re-do all the art and character portraits and who's fine with sharing, I might share my files as well. Unfortunately I'm totally not talented enough in drawing to do it myself

If I might ask, what software did you use to make this?

I used Adobe InDesign for almost the entire project. There were just a few tiny things that I adjusted in Photoshop.

Would it be possible to at least get the template sans art assets?

Good news! I contacted an artist who is willing to share their art, but there are two missing portraits that need to be created. So once they arrive, I'll update my file and I should be able to publish it soon-ish.

Any ETA? Really want to make myself a copy of this. What about uploading everything other than the missing portrait?

Hi,
Your Secret Voldermort looks awesome! I'm really looking forward to print it
I wanted to know how is the search for an artist going, and if you can upload the files without the faces.
I wish u luck!

Is there any chance of getting your files for this version? My family and I love Harry Potter. This would be the perfect version for me to make for them.

Unfortunately the artist who I was hoping could draw the missing portraits doesn't feel up to drawing Voldemort. All other artists I've contacted have not replied (it's been about 2 months since I contacted them).

I'm not uploading or sending out the files to anyone until I have a set of portraits for the cards that can be used legally (e.g. under creative commons).

If you're good at drawing and feel up to drawing Voldemort, Bellatrix and Sirius, Remus, or even a full set of 6-8 (canonical) OotP members and 4-5 Death Eaters, or if you know someone, go for it and let me know!

Any reason to not upload portraitless cards? The entire design is beautiful and I'd be fine without portraits...

I'd be happy to just have the text of each character's name in place of a portrait, but I understand the desire for the set to be 'complete'.

Portrait-less cards would mean a more or less complete overhaul of the design, currently I don't have the time for that... still looking for an artist, but no luck so far.
