...how to create alternate cards so that the little icons (such as fatigue, wounds, shields, etc) fall neatly in line with the text? I've created a few, and just placing it in amongst the text as an image makes it a nightmare to get it all to line up properly (and is sometimes impossible). Any hints?

Wouldn't it be easier in Photoshop?

There is a tool in the menu bar and in the Character interface box that will allow you to adjust how high above or below the baseline an element of text or an embedded image box sits.

You select a portion of text or the embedded image box with your text cursor tool and then enter a number as a positive or negative value in appropriate field. The selected text or imbedded image box will then sit higher or lower in the line of text relative to its baseline. From there you can copy/paste the element within other content in other text boxes and it will retain its adjustment relative to the new baseline.

I'm sorry that I don't have InDesign in front of me to tell you more exactly than that.
