4E Power Cards for D&D Experience Characters

Posted by Tintagel on April 13th, 2008

NOTE:  This post is out of date.  These cards have been updated and the template is now for sale!

http://educatedgamer.net/blog/4e-power-cards

I used the Magic Set Editor program with a modified Full Text Template (copy to the Data folder) to create these power cards for the 1st level sample characters from the D&D Experience. They are just preliminary cards, but show some potential…

Here is my system – your mileage may vary!

  • The card color represents the class (paladin, warlock, etc). For the Warlock, multiple colors represent the class (black) and focus (green = fey).
  • Powers based on Races use the Land texture, and Items will use the Artifact texture.
  • I took advantage of the Power/Toughness section to re-state the type of ability (Standard, Move, Minor, Free, or Immediate), since in play this is a common point where my players have slowed down in trying to pick their actions.
  • I am using the official 4E logo as the set logo – just for fun. Black = At Will, Silver = Encounter, and Gold = Daily.
  • At Will, Encounter, and Daily are also represented by the card border. I chose darker variations of the colors to help they eyes. I almost made everything with black borders for aesthetic reasons, since I will be using colored sleeves for my coding, but figured others might not, so I left them. Feel free to change if you don’t like.
  • The mana symbol represents the level of the power. In the case of Class features, I used 0, since you get those independent of level. Also, X is used for racial powers – though I might just pull that.

Be the Change: Lyrics

Posted by Tintagel on April 3rd, 2008

My wife asked me to find the lyrics to the song below, but I couldn’t find them published anywhere. This is my best attempt to transcribe the words. If anyone has found official lyrics, lemme know.

everywhere you look
you can write a book on what’s goin on
everyone you know’s got to reap what they sow
be it right or wrong

ghettos flood
there’s a hole up in the sky
oil and blood
tell me why oh why

terrorstruck, look at us
this isn’t what we planned
you gotta take a stand

<Chorus>
dont forget that pride always goes before fall
nobody’s free till there’s freedom for all
as you sow, so shall you reap
be the change that you want to see
oh yeah
be the change that you want to see

every now and then
you gotta bend to the way it is
but be that as it may
it’s not the way just cause they say it is
(just because they say it is)
on tv there’s just no reality
all I hear is me, me, me
what they sold, I’m not buying anymore
no more war

<Chorus>
dont forget that pride always goes before fall
nobody’s free till there’s freedom for all
as you sow, so shall you reap
be the change that you want to see
oh yeah
be the change that you want to see

yesterday heard you say
that theres nothing you can do
wonder if you’d feel the same
if it was happening to you

<Chorus>
dont forget that pride always goes before fall
nobody’s free till there’s freedom for all
as you sow, so shall you reap
be the change that you want to see
oh yeah
be the change that you want to see
right now
be the change that you want to see
see the changes start with you
be the change that you want to see

be the change that you want to see
be the change that you want to see
be the change that you want to see
be the change that you want to see
(repeat)
