Firing up a test run posting here, I don’t normally write much text on Tumblr but here’s to new-old experiences! I’ll mainly be chronicling the progress of my card game, Fields of Eleria, although much of it is already done it probably wouldn’t hurt to have some officially published stuff floating around and post up things on current and upcoming developments.
The premise of the game, the elevator pitch if you will, is that it’s a mini-MOBA in your pocket, a head-to-head customizable card game brawler, Magic: the Gathering meets Lord of the Rings meets League of Legends and DOTA2. It is a game of momentum, where your choices of heroes and minions clash against your opponent’s as you battle out for dominance of the six game fields and maneuver to destroy your opponent’s base. Design your deck, plan your strategies, and fight for your road to victory.
I wanted to create a customizable card game set in a high fantasy world of my creation, pooling from game systems that I love and admire but trying to give my own spin on mixing them together. The decks are fully customizable, I have plans on releasing more card sets in the future to further expand upon the game’s story and deckbuilding options. I wanted to make the initial core set fully complete, no buying booster packs in hopes of landing that chase rare card, you just buy the set or a specific deck and you get all the cards, multiples so you can custom tailor your build experience to your liking.
My goal is to have offerings of card sets for each faction and then one complete core set that will have multiples of all the cards from the first core card set. The factions will have multiple copies of all that faction’s cards and various support cards. I’ll have to do a bit more research into specifically how many cards of each I’ll need to print at a minimum, but that’s my target goal.
That’s the general gist of it. I’m mainly making a game for myself but I also hope that there are others who enjoy competitive head to head games who might also enjoy this, too. Stay tuned for more updates and insights! Thanks for checking this out.
