Dark Venture Card Tools
This repository houses tools for creating custom cards for use with the Dark Venture adventure tabletop game:
Specifically, these tools support creating custom Side Quest and Heroic Quest cards using HTML, which can then be printed out and sleeved alongside the game's existing cards to add more content to the game. Note that this project does not (and will not) provide card backs, so it's up to the user to figure out how to deal with that.
If you would like to contribute custom quests, please post them in the above BGG thread or feel free to contact me directly. If you're comfortable using the Fossil SCM, we can also set you up with direct access to the source repository.
Several example cards can be seen in sidequests.html and heroicquests.html.
My thanks to Rob Lemon, creator and artist of Dark Venture, for his extensive assistance in getting these up and running.
This project provides no card backs. How to integrate these cards with one's copy of the game is up to each player. Those using sleeves can print these and slip them into existing quest cards to "overwrite" them. Those using opaque sleeves can integrate these directly into their decks. (And if anyone knows a source for Mini-Euro-sized opaque sleeves (for the Side Quest cards), please get in touch!) Owners of the print-and-play edition can print out backs from there.
The more notable TODOs:
- Maybe, just maybe, write a basic online editor and card printer app for these, similar to the Morbad Weakness/Triumph card editors and its card printer app. The necessary server-side back-end bits are in place for saving/loading cards, along the same lines as the Dungeon Degenerates and Zombicide card tools, but writing a UI for it is not something i've currently got the energy for.
These tools are largely based off of similar efforts for other games:
Alas, those were implemented when free time and energy were in tremendous abundance, which is no longer the case, so it seems unlikely that these tools will get quite that level of treatment.
