Magic: the Gathering in the UK
Date: Saturday 31st March - 12 noon
Where: Penderel's Oak - High Holborn
* Each participator designs 45 Magic cards in Magic Set Editor format
* Send finished cards to firstname.lastname@example.org
* We print them all out, sleeve them up, and shuffle into boosters
* Draft and enjoy!
Although there was only four of us who did this last time, many onlookers expressed their interest in being part of the next one.
Threads from previous instances:
You Make the Draft I - Aftermath (includes link to visual spoiler of all created cards)
You Make the Draft III - Aftermath (includes link to MSE file)
Things we learnt from the previous attempts and loose rules:
EDIT: We have chosen "land matters" as a theme, so try and include a smattering of cards that interact with lands in some way.
People who have expressed interest so far:
EDIT: Design Skeleton file here: YmtSet.mse-set
Tom's idea for a theme seems decent without being oppressively narrow so is fine by me.
The database looks pretty sweet. I like the way it allows more than one design for a card, though I don't like the way it created a new card when I just wanted to put a comment in the notes! If someone uploads Simon's design skeleton into the database, anyone who wanted to get involved could upload cards into the relevant sections and we'd be off! Not being able to download the cards wouldn't make much difference when you can edit them online. Art can be always sourced later once the names are finalized!
This also probably needs a new thread collecting all the ideas ready for a You Make the Draft V...
