"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 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 of cards

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 gets 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 martial arts

Martial arts in "Heroic Deeds" refers not only to combat but also to the the various stunts and acrobatics that are commonly associated with martial arts. Special - supernatural powers commonly associated with martial arts might also be available under certain circumstances - dependent on the decision of the storyteller and the actual defining of the "Heroic deeds" by broad and narrow. Precisely which form of martial arts should be selected by the player drawing the card.

Choosing between narrow and broad and multiple cards

As with all "Heroic deeds" cards, the player drawing the "Heroic martial arts" card can choose how narrow or broad he would like to define his card. A broad definition could be someone who is a master of some form of martial arts. Having trained at a secluded monastery, his hands and feet are lethal weapons. He is skilled enough to perhaps even deflect certain attacks administered by physical weapons. Expending the card could allow for fighting multiple opponents, defeating armed guards and perhaps even achieving minor supernatural effects (breaking a rock, striking an other incorporeal ghost etc.).
As with all "Heroic deeds" cards, it is possible to draw more than one "Heroic martial arts" card. In that case, the hero is a true master of his art. He can deflect ordinary weapons and defeat even several opponents simultaneously. Expending a card might allow for deflecting arrows, fighting large groups, successfully striking with special strikes that can cause disability, death or similar effects. Similarly expending a card might allow for levitation, walking on water, or similar legendary mental capabilities of martial artists.
