    Congratulations to this month's winner, @hwango!

    Their card, Foreshadowed Strike, is in the game.

    What is Aloyzo's Arsenal?
    The wizard Aloyzo has finally decided to make himself useful, and is now enchanting custom items! The only problem is, he's pretty slow about it, filling only one order each month. He’s also a bit temperamental—every month, he may have some restriction on what kind of item he’s willing to make. Still: he might fill your order! Use the form below to request his services.

    THIS MONTH, Aloyzo is branching back out into cards! This month's design contest is not an item design contest, but a card design contest. Blue Manchu will make some items with the winning card. More info below.

    Aloyzo's Arsenal #26 - Design A Card
    this month's restriction: design a card for player items​

    # Order Form

    This month, the order form is quite different! This is because you are ordering a card, not an item. Please pay special attention to the format, and also be sure to read the clarifications. To submit your entry, include the following information:

    1. In-game Username
    This is necessary for Aloyzo to deliver your prizes.

    2. Card Name
    Aloyzo does not guarantee that he will craft your card with the requested name.

    3. Card Image
    Pick one of the 18 card images included in this post (see below). You can refer to it by number (1-18), by description, or by downloading & reuploading it to your post. There's a zip with all the images here:

    4. Card Type
    Attack (Red), Block (Green), Move (Blue), Boost (Orange), Assist (White), Utility (Purple), Armor (Gray), Handicap (Black), or hybrid (if hybrid, also include which two colors it is)

    5. Quality
    Black, Paper, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Emerald, Amethyst - a measure of card strength. Include + or - as appropriate to the card's strength.

    6. Rarity
    Common, Uncommon, or Rare - a measure of card complexity

    7. Card Effect
    Be sure to include ALL aspects of the effect. If this card is a card with a triggered effect like an armor card or a boost, be sure to include whether or not it's Keep. If it's an attachment, include its duration. Try to write the card effect to match standards used by Blue Manchu; that is to say, use the same language we use on cards, use the same formatting, etc.. Underline keywords. Try to make the effect as clear as possible.

    DO NOT submit any accompanying explanation of why your card should be selected. Submit only the above 7 pieces of information. If you need to say more about your card, do it in the submission discussion thread.

    # Clarification of This Month's Restrictions
    So, this is a big jump from item design. I trust that many of you are up for the task. That said, I want to outline some restrictions/caveats.

    1. !! We are not coding entirely new card functionality for this contest. This means that, for your card to be considered, you must use existing card functionality as "building blocks." Feel free to use the discussion thread to check in with other players about whether or not an idea is feasible with existing code. I may also weigh in if possible. Card designs that are not feasible without new code will not be considered, no matter how brilliant the design. Again, if you're unsure, just ask before submitting. (The only feedback you'll receive is whether or not it's feasible—I won't give pre-submission feedback on whether or not a design is good.)

    2. Cards should be designed for player items. This contest isn't for monster cards. The card you design should be balanced for its rarity and quality to appear on player items. You don't specify what kind of item it goes on—we'll figure that out. Just make sure it's a card that players should have access to.

    3. You may design a card at any quality/rarity combination, of any type. But keep in mind that something like "Abler Stab - C+ - Range 2 - 5 damage" isn't an interesting addition to the game. Design something different and exciting, while keeping the previous restrictions in mind.

    # Clarification of Number of Winners
    Aloyzo will forge ONE winning card.

    Additionally, Blue Manchu reserves the right to pick any number of bonus winners at our discretion. Do not take this to mean we are likely to do so.

    # Rewards
    What you get if Aloyzo accepts your order:
    • one copy each of up to 3 new items with your card, delivered straight to your inventory!
    • some number of new items with your card will also be released into the game's loot tables for all Card Hunters to hunt!
    • your name may appear in Card Hunter news!
    • you will also receive an epic chest, a gift from the smiling gods of Cardhuntria!

    # Questions
    Can I submit more than one card?
    A: If you want to submit multiple ideas, you have to do it over multiple months. Only one submission per month!

    Q: Is there anything that will instantly disqualify my card?
    A: Follow the month's design restrictions and you'll be fine... but if your card name includes references to intellectual property not owned by Blue Manchu, such as Mickey Mouse or Iron Man, Aloyzo guarantees he will change it should it be selected for crafting. Oh, and make sure your design is good—it fits the game, doesn't break anything, etc..

    Other questions? Ask in the discussion thread.

    Please only post in this thread to submit an order. Thanks!
