"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.

A brief explanation of the Heroic Deeds card game

"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

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 engineering

Although all heroes can participate in simple construction and a hero might be able to puzzle out the working of complex machinery, only heroes with a true knack for engineering will be able to create truly significant engineering feats. "Heroic engineering" lets a hero construct mechanical devices from material at hand that can preform all manner of amazing feats. Likewise, the "Heroic engineering" card lets the hero intuitively grasp the mechanism powering various constructs. This can make stopping the construct possible as well as perhaps taking control of it.

Choosing between narrow and broad and the effect of multiple cards

As with all "Heroic deeds" cards, the player must choose how broad or narrow he wishes to define his card. A broad use of the "Heroic engineering" card would be to say that the hero is a skilled inventor and engineer. Standard engineering feats such as constructing catapults and other siege weapons are well within his capabilities. Expending the card in that case could be used to construct such devices despite seeming lack of available material, constructing of special, improved, devices of a similar nature or for identifying and disarming mechanical traps that the heroes encounter. A narrower use of the card might be to say that the hero already has a mechanical wonder, this could be a mechanical horse that never tires or any similar advanced engineering technology (flight should probably avoided)
As with all "Heroic deeds" cards, it is possible to draw 2 of the same cards. In this instance, the storyteller should think twice before he allows it. The result would be a talented inventor who can and does nearly make anything imaginable. Expending a card in that case could result in nearly anything from flame throwers to semi-independent constructs
