DDO the Card Game: Sets

My original idea was to have all of the cards (457 so far) be in the same set. Maybe you’d start with a Starter Deck and be able to add random packs. Or maybe you’d start with a great big box of cards that contained them all.

Either way, there would be three raids, and the game would consist of trying to beat all of them.

Now I think breaking the cards up into sets is a better idea. Three sets, each of which includes one raid. You play to beat just that one raid. It will be a shorter game, although I suppose there could be “campaign rules” that allow someone to combine them all into the longer, grander game I’d originally envisioned.

So that is the thought process. Breaking it up into sets makes it easier to play, I think, and easier to distribute. Except … does it work? Each set has to be a fully contained and playable version of the game, with the possibility of a balanced character party and reasonably variant support cards.

This is my first cut at this:

  • The Base Set is not actually a separate entity; the cards in the Base Set have to always be available no matter what other set may be in play. The Base Set includes the Rogue character, all the Races, All the Festivals, all the Status and Afflictions, and those few Public Instances that I think should always be present
  • The Heroic Set – “Against the Storm Giant”- is intended to go up to about 5th level. It contains the Fighter, Wizard and Cleric characters
  • The Epic Set – “Dragon Slayer” – is intended to go to 10th level and contains the Paladin, Ranger and Sorcerer
  • The Legendary Set – “Devil Invasion” – goes to 15th level and contains the Barbarian, Bard, and Favored Soul

Here is the complete set listing:

Now I am wondering if maybe all of the Feats should be in the Base Set too. Unclear! What do you think?

The down side of this idea is that one could end up with multiple versions of the Base Set. Maybe, if this game is ever published, the published version would start as the Base Set + the Heroic Set. The Epic and Legendary Sets would be, I guess, expansions?

Opinions, anyone?

🙂 😀 🙂

What do you think?
