- The biggest change I made was to the card size, shrinking it slightly. They're still designed and sized to be printed on 3x5 index cards, but if you print them six to a page on standard printer paper, they should trim out just fine to fit into M:TG card sleeves. I'm beginning to suspect that version 3 (if there is a version 3) will be redesigned specifically at card sizes.
- I took Flying Cobra's suggestion and added severity numbers to each condition. The numbers reflect how many degrees of failure is generally takes to apply that condition. In the case of combined conditions, I used the most severe condition in the spread. Dying gets an asterisk because it generally only occurs as a plot point.
- I also took Freeclint's suggestion to make Bruised it's own color, making it easier to count up your penalty at the table.
A few quick notes:
- This is basically a first draft, and probably needs some tweaking. I pulled the text from the Hero's Handbook PDF, so there may be a hyphenation or two still in there that I missed.
- These are formatted to be printed out on 3x5" index cards. If you don't have a printer that can tackle index cards, you can print them at full size 2x2 on regular printer paper by going into Acrobat and in the print window selecting "Multiple Pages per Sheet" in the Page Scaling dropdown. You'll probably have to manually tell it to put four to a page.
- I broke up the various conditions into four groups of effects and color-coded them for quick reference. Red are damage effects from failed toughness saves. Yellow are action effects that affect how or how many actions you can perform. Blue are miscellaneous penalty effects, most ones that impose a dice penalty. Finally, Green are combines effects that stack one or more previous conditions
- I took the old 2e term "Bruised" for a Toughness save that fails by five or less. I know its not in 3e, but it's a fast and easy way of describing that level of failure.
- I have no idea if the Superpowered by M&M logo in necessary for condition cards, or used right, but it seemed like the decent thing to do at the very least. Jon, if you need me to add any extra information to the cards, please let me know what.
Hope some people find these useful!
