Random anecdote on the subject of customized cards:

In my old gaming group, I made a custom Munchkin item card called the "+0 Bag of Clothing" (in the general pattern of "Noun of Verbing" type items: it's a bag which clothes, not a bag containing clothes). It's an armor item that can be worn over any other armor, and gives no direct combat bonuses, but has the effect of causing all monsters to ignore any class you may have, because, I mean... you're wearing an old burlap sack, you obviously have no class.

I make custom cards for every power and item my characters use in 4e (starting from the USC in the Magic Set Editor and altering the templates and data to suit), it keeps my brain on straight and teaches me all the abilities and technicalities. I may start doing up "Encounter" cards with all relevant encounter information on them if I go back to DMing, but honestly at this point I'm ready to try a different system altogether. 4e is a solidish combat system, but I want something for actual roleplay and greater creativity even in combat. I want an RPG system where it is perfectly reasonable to chuck a fellow player at a dragon as a coordinated attack. Not at all wise, mind you, but still mechanically sound.

Fran is looking awfully cute with those wide open eyes in the last panel. I think she deserves a flying broomstick, as long as she promises to not use it to overcome plot critical obstacles or avoid encounters that assume that no one can fly. Or perhaps she could use a cauldron?

Impy: I'm fond of GURPS...

Personally, I can think of far too many jokes about broomsticks to feel any sympathy for Fran at all...

I’m not allowed to draw my own power cards when I play D&D for this exact reason
Did you really draw your DM being violated by tentacles IRL? Cause that is awesome... disturbing but awesome.
