Anyone with the appropriate skills be willing to make proxies for the recently errata'd cards?

It's a nice idea. but FFG's copyright lawyers might take a different view. Also, if they were posted here, they would contravene BGG's terms and conditions.

Wot? Now you're not even allowed to upload images of what cards don't look like?

I have created proxies for the changed Beravor, Zigil Miner and Protector of Lorien. They can be downloaded from https://dl.dropbox.com/u/71281313/LotR%20card%20errata.zip

I will delete them if a representative of FFG asks me to.

I believe FFG's stance is that you can post the text boxes of cards, but you can't post images, until 6 months after the card has been released. That's my understanding from GoT websites that have card spoilers. I'd expect Drew to chime in at some point, as he deals with FFG through his website that hosts spoilers, so maybe he can give some insight into what would and would not be allowed.

Well I don't want to speak for them but they generally don't have a problem with images being posted immediately as long as they are limited to specific sizes (The 6 month rule is for the images being used in online game tables like lackey and Octgn). Obviously these would be much larger than what that size is since they are print quality. I doubt they'd be upset by it as long as it is just these 3 cards, but it couldn't hurt to shoot them an email and ask to be sure.

Awesome sauce, thanks John.

I doubt FFG would have a problem, unless they provide them POD - in which case I for one would buy the official versions (since, y'know, I buy everything).

Since I posted the first 2 cards in my gallery, I figured I might as well post the 3rd. Here it is:

One free advice from older person ;-)

Use only the low end part for errata cards, so the Fantacy Flight games is not in difficult position as an middle man. The card text is ok to change, but it is much harder to get aproval of using card pictures.

In the very old Star Wars ccg there are card updates, with just the new card text. There are erratas and virtual cards:
http://www.starwarsccg.org/index.php?option=com_phocadownloa...:cat1&Itemid=149

Look for example Virtual Defensive Shields pdf. It is guite clever way of making it. You have to have the original card for picture (so you are not making an illegal copy), but you can change the game text of the card (and maybe the tittle).






Of cource even better would be if FFG would do it by themselves or would say that it is ok to make errata mock ups.

edit:
Or even better it would be to have print on demand versions (3 of each) updated cards and/or PDF:s too. So it would not cost anything to FFG to make those upgrades. If some one wants to have them: a) they can order the Print on demand versions (you pay, what you get), b) print the PDF, or c) ignore those upgrades.

ps. If the print on demand set is too small? Is there any limit in there? FFG could put some of those 1 or 2 in starter box cards as on fillers? But I don't think that there should be any minimum amount an updates. And there are at liest 3 upgrade with major wording, and some minor. So 6-7 cards at least. And 7*3 cards is 21 so it should be enough for those print an demand things...
