What, for the card game to happen? People to make it.

And I agree with you this shouldn't be a real physical game.

Alright, so how we figure exactly which tropes/indexes we're gonna turn into cards, and then do them all in one shot.

Not a bad idea.

Let's start by saying we need pretty much everything on Tropes of Legend.

Anything else?

We should get rid of all the Videogame Tropes, but yeah, that'll work.

Also, we could use the Omnipresent Tropes, and Stock Characters.

Ooh...Hold on a sec. We're just busy. I might just go off and make some cards. Well, when I have time, anyway.

Aww. I binge my way through a year of posts, and the topic just sorta... stops.

Guess I ought to get our bearings here:

Who would help make cards if we restarted this?

I can try. I'm not very creative, though.

I have nothing better to do, and thus can help.

Would we still be using the rules Ironeye outlined?

Yeah, I would guess so. There's already been so much work done on it. It would be nonsensical to throw it all out completely.

Yeah, more or less.

Well, hopefully we can revive this thing now it's moved.

I'll help make cards maybe.

I was thinking, it would be good for someone to learn to use Java, which is the program that is used to make Shoddy, a very popular online Pokemon battle simulator and a Yu-Gi-Oh battle simulator as well. It could be used to make some kind of game, as well as the server for it, and deck building.

I already know Python, and I know it's perfectly capable of connecting to the internet.

Only problem is I've never made anything quite as complex as an entire game client before.

You could just make a card set for Magic Workstation.

Oh! I can do that! My brother's computer has that full version program on it for some reason...

I can use it to make cards, and do stuff. I just need all the details.

Yes, the avatar is blank
We could go via making indexes "Booster packs" To L would be the virst and the Sci-Fi Fantasy trope would be "Beats and Binary"
I could possibly do art. Nothing fancy, but it might look pretty.

EDIT: Found a possible Java card game engine: Firemox. I don't know. Check it out.

That's probably as good as we're going to get, but that doesn't mean I am going to magically learn how to write XML.

If anyone does know how, please let me know.

Just found this thread today, I'm actually pretty enthusiastic about the concept so count me in.

I can do graphics for the cards. I see we have an idea what will be on the cards but is there a template for how they'll look?
