Hero Card Template

This template will allow you to make your very own Heroes!



*Note: I just whipped up this Hero on the fly, so I have absolutely no idea how 'balanced' he is. Use him at your own risk

How to use:
-Paste your Artwork at the bottom of the layer stack
-Choose which Sphere of Influence the Hero will belong to by showing the appropriate layer
-Change all values and text as desired
-Position the "Unique Symbol" to the left of your Hero's name

*NOTE: In order to make full use of this template, the following Fonts are required: Vafthrudnir.

Enjoy!

GeckoTH, you're my hero.

Any chance you're working on Enemy/Location/Treachery card templates? If so, I have some fantastic scenario ideas I'd love to try out. It gets repetitive using the same 5 groups of cards for custom scenarios. =D

Keep up the fantastic work! +1!

Yey Tom! (Why weren't you in the movies )

Note; With that wording maybe he could loose the "response" and make it a constant ability?

Browsing through the Location cards, I noticed there are three 'types' of words used: Travel, Response, and Forced. My thought was that allowing him to ignore all of these effects might be a bit overpowered, especially since the Forced effects are usually quest specific. So I needed to be specific on which effects he could ignore.
I also considered giving him 4 Willpower, making him kind of an alternative to Eowyn, and reducing his attack or defense a bit... I'm still undecided.
Like I said, he has not been playtested at all laugh

Turns out Esseb did touch the flag. Don't tell him I said so though.

Well it still would not need a "response" text, just simply remove the "response:" part and it would remain unchanged.

Though I would lower his attack and defense by 1 to bring him more in line with bilbo (since his ability works regardless of what else he does)

Might I suggest,

Response: Spend 1 resource token from this heroes resource pool to ignore any Travel effect or Response effects just triggered from an active location card.

Ooh! Now I understand what you and ilgoga meant!
Yeah, that makes perfect sense.

I feel guilty just waiting lazily for you guys to do all those new scenarios and things, but that won't keep me from enjoying the hell out of themmodest

Love Tom!!!

As a hero, he is very nice, but.. I'd probably bump up his defense to reflect that the Ring had no effect on him.

Thematically, I would have imagined Tom more as an Ally who got discarded after a round, as in the books he has a laissez-faire attitude about the rest of the world. He would definitely be there to help out, but only situationally.

Great suggestions, Paul.

He's an updated version of his Hero Card.




When I get around to making the Ally card template, I can do a version of him as an Ally as well

Great work, thanks for sharing!

Still looking forward to Ally, Attachment and Event cards if you find the time to do them

Tom, I like how your templates look better than the Strange Eons plugin, but there's one problem... how to include the symbols for willpower, attack, defense, when needed? I don't see those included anywhere in your template.

I try to use this with GIMP. Seems that I can't change any text. Or am I lacking in Gimp-fu?
Did anybody use this template successfully with Gimp?

Text layers created in PS don't transfer very well to GIMP apparently. That is, they are recognised as image layers, not as text you can edit.

You could, however, create a new text-layer in GIMP with the same font and colour to replace the text created in PS. Requires a bit of work I guess. Alternatively, there is the plug-in for Strange Eons.

In both case, though, I have the problem that the threat/cost and hitpoints for heroes, allies and events lose the nice texture effect (and in Strange Eons have the wrong colour as well). Did anybody find a way around that?
