Post Chain of Command - INTERLUDE
While Nathan's away GenConning, rather than have our creative muscles atrophy waiting for CoC #16, I thought we could flex them on this extracurricular interlude.

Premise: Most of us here are fans of either Trek, another sci-fi franchise, or CCGs (or most likely a combination of all three). All I'm looking for is:

  • (A) People, places or paraphernalia from one sci-fi/fantasy franchise forced into Trek's 2E template

and/or

  • (B) Trek members, missions or materiel squeezed into another CCG's mold

In either event, links to shows or games to inform the unfamiliar wouldn't go amiss.

And there's nothing to vote on, but comments and criticisms might be nice.

Well I don't have the template, how about something like this:
Quote:
[Rebel] (Unique) Deanna Troi [Destiny 2]
Counselor of the U.S.S. Enterprise-E. Can bullseye Remans easier than Luke could bullsyse womprats.

Power 2 Ability 3 Force-Attuned
[Pilot]
[Warrior]

Adds 2 to power of anything she pilots. When piloting a capital starship, adds one battle destiny and weapon destiny draws are +2.

Deploy 4
Forfeit 6


Something like that?

The template I meant 'metaphorically' (as I think the Code of Conduct prohibits the posting of actual images, no?), but yeah, this is exactly what I meant. :thumbsup:

What game's this? I'm guessing Star Wars something-or-other...

Fun idea! If I get packed in time tonight, I may post some Firefly or Babylon 5 card ideas. Or put Worf into several different games!

Dude, you know there are goodies, right? ;)

Also, are you aware of the Yahoo group for 2E Dream cards? - there's someone on there making a fuckton of Star Wars 2E cards. Like, whole sets and stuff.

All of the personnel you posted sported one or two Treachery and Integrity<=4. You didn't post any 'goodies'.
