The layout is very nice and functional and the card art of most cards is gorgeous. However, I'm really not a fan of scantily clad women in card games. It kills immersion for me. I also can't agree calling this game a TCG; Unless there is information I have not been put in knowledge of, I think your game is more of a DBG than a CCG/TCG.

I intend to try out your game to give you actual feedback once I have more money for printing in colour or using a professional printing service, but I wish you had a website from which I could access the cards more easily than from DeviantArt, which I'm not used to and I find confusing to navigate it.

So far looking at the cards and through the rules, I have a good first impression even though the amount of scantily clad women is too much to my taste. I look forward to trying your game and I wish you luck with your project.

BTW one last nitpick: the card borders are way too thick.

Okay, that's not the criticism I was expecting, but you seem to suggest that women cannot be scantily glad in fantasy, which to me gets into icky territory of disallowing women their right to dress how they want, and that's not a message that I wish to pursuit for this game, so I am not going to change that part, so sorry if that's a deal breaker to you. Additionally, I name it a TCG, because that's what Yu-Gi-Oh! does, and it's inspired by that game obviously. This is also the first time I have heard of the term DBG, but I suppose that's an accurate statement.

As for a website, I have no real skill in that regard, if anyone would be willing to make one, go ahead, I don't much care what you do with my cards, just as long as you don't claim to have made them of course.

Can't do anything about the card borders, as I have said, I didn't make this template, and I have no artistic skills, so all you see is simply how the program I used to make the cards handles things.

Glad to see some comments regardless, while these are not the comments I had expected, any criticism is welcome, just don't expect me to change it to how you want to see things, if you don't like the way I am doing things, that's fine, you don't have to continue watching the development of the game.

Uh no. You're reading way too much into it. I'm just not a fan. Ruins my immersion because to me a card game is all about the battle and a lack of a proper battle attire breaks my immersion; I'd have the same criticism for half naked men. And I wouldn't be interested in trying your game if that was a deal breaker. What I'm saying is that there are too many of them and it could become a deal breaker.

Also I missed the part about you not being the artist yesterday because it was late I was understandably tired. Sorry about that, though I'm convinced if it's just the borders that it can easily be fixed in Paint.Net, but I understand why you wouldn't want to try and as I said, it's really more of nitpick. Though, if possible, I'd like you to reserve a spot on each card to properly credit the artists. I'd put it on the bottom, like they do in pokemon.

Would be nice to credit the artists.

Unfortunately I don't know who made the art for the cards, as most pictures come from an image catalog I once downloaded to make YGO cards with, so if it was possible, I would. All the images are just randomly named, so I can't even find out who made them https://prnt.sc/uden44
