The Caper Of Knaio: Symbols (March 2014 Update) by icycatelf The Caper Of Knaio: Symbols (March 2014 Update) by icycatelf
Potential symbols for a fantasy card game I conceptualized in middle school. I'm not sure if anything will ever come of it, but the idea is fun to play around with.

The Caper of Knaio belongs to me. Please don't use any of these without my permission.

ROL?

As long as it isn't for commercial use, I suppose I'm fine with that.

OOOHH Lovely! 
Most of these speak for themselves but how would the lock and key type elements work?
I think if these would have full decks I'd be team Celestial.

Thanks! :)

Lock and Key aren't really elements. Lock cards generally prevent something from happening (such as disabling an opponent's creature) while Key cards enable things to happen (such as letting you add a card from your deck to your hand or undo the effects of a Lock card).

Nice choice! In fact, some of the strongest cards in the game are part Celestial. I've always leaned more toward Ocean, but maybe that's because the first creature I ever designed for the game was part Ocean. Back when I wrote my YGO-esque short stories nearly 10 years ago, the main character used an Ocean deck.

Cards can actually have up to three types, one for each of the following stats: Origin (determines what the card is weak against), Power (determines what the card is super-effective against), and Terrain (determines the speed modifier).

Oh thank you! Now I get it.

It still needs a lot of work. Aside from the types, a potential logo, and some character ideas, I've not made much progress on it. I'm still not sure how a game would be played and I've yet to make a card template that I like.

Don't worry , all great things requite work.

With each character from each element, you must have some sort of similarities such as colour or structure to them.
Artificial for example will require something to make it different from mineral , both will have bulky characters. Wire , glowing eyes , take your pick. Nocturnal will use blue hues and glow in the dark over the lights and browns of myth , etc.

Best of luck

Good variety of elements here, and as someone who hasn't seen them before the symbol designs are great! I especially like the Healing, Flame, Air, Occult.. okay I pretty much love half of them especially!

How far have you gotten with figuring out the bells-and-whistles of the card game?

:iconicycatelf:
icycatelf Featured By Owner May 9, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm glad you like them! I'm thinking about updating Holy and Mythical, but I've not really sat down to do it yet. Also thinking about getting rid of Insect an just classify those under Forest.

Pretty much no progress. I talked to a guy a couple years back who gave me an idea for how to play the game, but I don't really have the knowhow to come up with card effects that would be useful and balanced. Really need some kind of gamer on my team to help get that all figured out.

You get the know-how by playtesting, essentially. The problem is, how does one go about that for a as-of-yet card game. There must be some kind of program that lets you insert custom rules and cards, though I've yet to find one.

Hmm, I'm no pro-gamer so I can't give insight in that department - perhaps you'll find some articles like this archive.wizards.com/Magic/Maga… to be of use? I read these when I was (and still am) trying to design my pokémon TCG set.

Alright.
Q1.Can firearms be used by Soldier type creatures?
Q2.Which evil creatures are in Nocturnal and the ones in Occult?
Q3.Do beastmen counts as Animals?
Q4.Which type does undeground creatures classified as?
Q5.Where does reptiles and dinosaurs classified as?
Reply
:iconicycatelf:
icycatelf Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
1) Yes.
2) Occult is made up of black magic users, psychics, and unholy spirits. Nocturnal is made up of creatures of the night. Of course, a creature could be both Occult and Nocturnal.
3) It depends on if they use weapons, have elemental powers, or just how humanoid they are. A standard werewolf would probably be Animal/Nocturnal, but if it was a wolf-man with an axe, it would probably be Animal/Soldier.
4) Depends what it's made of. If it's just something like a mole, it would be Animal. If it has skin/scales made of stone, it would be Mineral. If it's a machine that travels underground, it would be Artificial.
5) Smaller reptiles would depend on their elemental powers (a fire lizard would be Flame, but a lizard without any elemental powers would be Animal). Most dinosaurs would be Mineral (because fossils). Dragons would be Mythical.
