I am missing most of the cards and decided to simply order them thru Artscow. Since I am recreating them from different sources, and not necessarily from a full set of scans, I wanna make sure I make no mistakes. I wonder if you can take a look at the files to give it the once over, before I actually place the order.

I've done most of the basic work. I still need to look over and make sure there are no typos and such. I also am gonna do some design tweaks and general clean-up.
Basically I am concerned about getting the fronts and backs correct and about not missing anything. There are a couple of lists of cards online and some of the cards don't have any info, for example 90 "gondor mobilizes any player" or 41 "a frightening rumor."

I think I am fairly happy with the cards now. I decided against the double sided frame as that is gonna cause me grief when cutting, plus it'll be a closer match to the original cards.
I definitely need help with the 'servants of sauron' and 'frightening rumor' cards. I have no idea what is on the other side or what the full content is.

As you can see I'm not gonna do the 'free people' now, because then I'd need a third deck. I might do them later if I have filler cards on a separate order.

Please take your time to review these and let me know if you see any errors, missing stuff, or even if you have suggestions.

I didn't finish the free peoples, because those are the cards I actually have, and am the least concerned about finishing.

Thanks a bunch!

OP is referring to the old SPI game.

Don't know if it's just me, but I can't make out the details on the cards (too small).

The writing is per the lists of cards online, so that should be fine. As I've said, there are cards which seem to be missing info. Or I don't have the info on both sides.

Unfortunately Arstcow viewing is very low res.

I am not sure why there is confusion, but this is for the vintage SPI edition.

The reason for the confusion is simple: this title appeared on the bgg news feed, and it has the exact name of the new game, which I monitor.

If Herman bites on the rest of my Spares deck, I still have all the Free Peoples cards available.

Rob, Thanks for the offer, but it doesn't seem to me you have the full set, according to the inventory it is 112 cards total. If you do have the full set, I will bite, otherwise I'd still need to recreate a bunch of missing cards.

I had the two set's Events Cards mixed together whistle

The last time I played with my Daughter, I got exasperated running through the seemingly unlucky primary deck- never once did I get a successful capture. Most annoying angry

So, I figured her Jedi whatever she was using would be thrown off by a deck from England, which is where the "spare" set came from. (Hey, I was playing Sauron after all, so cut me some Slack)

Anyway, no such luck. The Hobbits just waltzed right into Oroduin and you know the rest.........little Halfling Creeps!

So, I do have the whole deck from 001 (Aragorn II) to 112 (Gwaihir poops on Gandalf)
