We have another Sneak Peak for you today. Gale Force 9 who already make some cracking maps, terrain, and special edition figures for Dungeons and Dragons are bringing out a line of spell casting cards for the newest edition of the game.
Now if your like me when you hear something like that you just think “cha-ching!!” Cash Cow time…
But perhaps this time not so much. I headed over to the Galeforce 9 website to have a look at what they are offering, I was quite hopeful as I really like the character token sets they produced for 4th Edition. They look like they are set to retail at $19.99 for the bigger decks like Arcane and Cleric,so we can expect them to be about £12-£15 each, and the smaller ones for the ranger and Paladin are $6.99 so about £5 I would expect, when the surface here in the UK.
They have pictures for the spell cards so I thought I would pop them on here for you guys to look at as well.
Each deck has the following features:
These decks of spell cards are an invaluable resource for any magic-user. Consult the entire deck when selecting new spells to learn, and after a long rest you can set aside those spells you want to prepare for the day. Each deck is made from thick laminated card so they will stand the test of time.
•Spell name and important info is easy to find for quick reference.
•Descriptive/Mechanical text is written in full wherever possible. When it isn’t, a Player’s Handbook page reference is given.
•Scaling spells have an additional section with details on how they improve.
•Card backs prominently display spell level for easy sorting.
•The Spell cards are highly durable and are made to last. Each card has a coating that protects them and makes them safe to use with dry erase markers.
Each deck has a specific back and an icon that matches the icon in the class section of the PHB, which is a nice touch.
Here is all the artwork I could find for the different decks so far.
Let me know what you think about them, and what your views on gaming accessories is, and if you will be buying these when they are released.purchasing them as they come, unless some nice person over at Galeforce 9 wants to send me some to review, in which case I’d be more than happy to do so!
