On my Google Plus page I posted a while back about the card types that will be in Uttarakuru. I cleaned up the post a little bit and added some stuff about other kinds of cards that’ll be in it. Cards aren’t exactly integral to the game. However I’ve found them to be a really handy presentation method for rules texts. You don’t need all of a character’s sheet all the time in an RPG. In D&D for example, the “status” portion of your sheet with your defenses, saving throws and health has to share space with stuff like the name space, a character portrait block, your gear, your skills, that might not be immediately relevant right there. Instead what I want to do is divided those individual elements into cards with big titles so you pick up what you want immediately. It’s not necessary to present the information as cards, but on the table I’ve found it’s a lot more handy than a sheet.
So anyway, on to the card types and what they’re gonna do for you.
