"Heroic Deeds" is a card game that I have designed and I am describing step by step wikinut. This is a description of a card for the "Heroic Deeds" deck of cards of "Heroic Deeds" there are two other decks already published.

This particular concept of card based gaming is completely my own and I reserve all rights to the game although I invite you to play it freely as well as to print out as many cards as you need for personal use. Any attempt to market this game in any way must first be permitted by myself.

The card game of Heroic Deeds

"Heroic Deeds" is a card based roleplaying conceived and designed by myself. You can read all about it in previous articles I have published by clicking Here and Here.
The game is designed to be played by several players and one storyteller. I am publishing the cards for this game, one at a time here on wikinut and I invite readers to comment and make suggestions at any time.

Using the "Heroic deeds" deck of Heroic Deeds

As previously described, the "Heroic Deeds" deck is used to help the players design their heroes for the game. The cards also help determine guidelines and limitations on what heroes can accomplish. Typically, every hero get to draw four "Heroic Deeds" cards. It is possible to draw more than one of the same card. Players generally get to determine precisely how the cards they have drawn will help define who their hero is and what he can do.

Heroic creativity

Composing swaying ballads, painting portraits and playing musical instruments are all forms of creativity. While any hero can claim modest or better skill in any single given area, this doesn't necessarily allow him to use as a story altering mechanism. At best, a samurai like hero who claims the skill of painting could be able to paint a likeness of someone, for example. The "Heroic creativity" card takes the skill of the hero to the rank of a master, able to produce unique and impressive masterpieces. The precise venue of creativity is up to the player.

Choosing between narrow and broad and the effect of multiple cards

As with all "Heroic deeds" cards "Heroic creativity" can be defined in very broad terms or in very narrow ones and the precise nature of this is up to the player to choose. A very broad use of the "Heroic creativity" card would be to say that the hero is generally talented in a wide variety of skills, a sort of 'jack of all trades'. Expending the card in such a case would allow the hero to produce a very good piece of work, the equivalent of the standard work of a master of the craft. The card could easily be narrowed by selecting a single venue of creativity such as sculpting, pottery, etc. A single use definition of the card could let a hero create a true, lasting, masterpiece of potentially great impact.
It is possible to draw more than one "Heroic creativity" card in which case the hero is either a true professional at any creative task or else an undisputed master at a single group of tasks. Again, expending the card would produce even greater and more impressive effects.
It should be noted that the card need not be expended on the level of skill of the creativity. It can just as easily be expended for the effect. Playing a song to soothe an angry bear might require expending a card for someone with a single card. Not because the music needs to be so great - most bears are probably not connoisseurs! Rather, it is the story effect being considered...

They aren't different card games - it is all one game. Every post is a single card...
