Community Created Balance Cards: I think it would be cool if the community could come together and offer input in the form of community-created new cards/items that would help balance out the MP in terms of overall balance / fairness, assuming that the game mechanisms will not be changed, and specific items/cards will not be changed (this is hypothetical, so play along as we have no idea when or if things will be balanced). With that said, I'll create a few, and if anyone has input as to what you would like to create, please feel free to share, or critique. Use the following descriptors please [if applicable]: Card Name: Type of Card: Card Quality: Rarity: Trigger Roll Required: Damage Type/Attack Type: Range: Movement: Move/Damage: Trigger Effect: Flavor Text: Any explanation as to why this card would assist the balance of the MP: Repulsive Field of Knives Magic Arcane Utility/Assist Gold Uncommon Range 6 Duration 2. 2+. Attach to Target. Block Any [Step Attack]. Encumber 1. Whenever target is targeted by a step attack, that character repulses the attacker; applying a path of knives to the attacker AND moving the attacker an equal number of tiles in a random direction equal to the number of tiles moved by the attacker playing the Step Attack. May Self Target. "I do not believe my enemies appreciate the gravity of their situation." - Pilgrim Bailey. This card would provide wizards with some form of utility, and counter to a very specific type of attack that is currently extremely hard to counter and dominates the metagame - step attacks. I believe that I have balanced the effect by making the quality be gold, the rarity uncommon (so that it appears decently frequently), and additionally encumbers the target 1 (which means that the target, friend or foe, incurs a penalty by having this). Additionally, the effect is not automatic, making it function similarly to parry (2+ roll). I will concede that there is a lot going on for this card, but I do not believe the complexity of the effects is overwhelming. As an added bonus, this repulses any step attack used on the target (whether melee or magic step attacks - think ironwood staves).
