1 and 2 Samuel
« on: June 17, 2019, 09:29:56 PM »

Ramah 1 Sam 25:1
Site Gold/Green
Search discard pile for Samuel and place him here. While Samuel is in Ramah, if your Israelite is discarded you may discard a matching brigade from reserve instead and opponent must discard a card from hand.
-Samuel was a prophet and judge, I think itís fair for him to judge your opponent for discarding an Israelite.

Meeting Abigail Purple/Red
1 Sam 25:3
0/2
Star: Search deck for Abigail
TC: Negate neutral cards. Draw 1 and search deck for an animal. If played in battle underdeck a hero in territory to underdeck an evil card.

Nabal
1 Sam 25:3
5/7 Brown
TC: Negate protect abilities. If blocking,opponent must discard a good card from hand. If it was a dominant, protect lost souls from being rescued by a hero, cannot be negated.

I think he is hilarious. So his story is interesting; David shows up and takes a liking to his wife. David had his men watch Nabalís shepherds then demanded gifts because his men did not steal from them and because his men were nice to Nabalís shepherds. Just think about that for a second. I know Nabal was portrayed as a mean dude and a bad husband, and I am sure he was, but if someone demanded gifts because his guys did not steal from my guys I would probably question it too. Nabal questioned this but also did not help David, I think I would have helped him. So his wife gave David a bunch of food and wine without him knowing. So I thought his ability would be fun to contradict itself since Abigail contradicted him. He negates protect abilities but if you discard a good dominant lost souls are protected and his ability cannot be negated. His TC negating protect abilities is very nice and helps with targeting your opponentís hand with Abigail/shearing sheep. I thought it was funny. Might be confusing for new players but what card isnít?

Purple GE/Brown EE

Gath Evil Fortress
1 Sam 27:4
If your evil king or Philistine is discarded place here. If opponent removes your evil king or Philistine you may add one evil character here to battle. May be used twice per game.

Dwelling in the Country
1 Sam 27:7
1/4 Red
x = number of Israeliteís owner has
Set aside up to X Israelites for 2 turns. For each hero set aside opponent must set aside an evil character.

Tidings to Gath
1 Sam 27:11
3/0 Green, Red, Purple
If used by a red warrior class character, discard an evil character. If used by a green prophet, shuffle an evil character. If used by purple royalty, underdeck an evil character.
-The point to this card was supposed to be a 4 color card, one for each of Davidís, Godís King colors, and abilities would activate in battle so long as the colors matched. It was a bit wordy and that didnít include white. So I did it this way so a lot of characters still get to use it, it can be negated, but itís versatile, David can activate all of their abilities. I lastly added the specific colors to further limit the power of the card.

Philistine Warfare
1 Sam 28:1
2/4 Evil Enhancement
5/8 Evil Character WC
EE: Remove all warrior class heroes in battle.
Evil Character: Remove abilities cannot be interrupted.

Delivered to the Philistines
1 Samuel 28:19
0/0 Black
TC: Take a city. If played in battle capture all heroes in battle. Cannot be negated if played against an Israelite.

Philistine Commanders
1 Sam 29:3
7/9 WC
Star: Search deck for King Achish to draw 1.
May band to a Philistine to withdraw a hero in battle. Cannot be prevented.

Pursuing Philistines
1 Samuel 30:8
4/2 Red/Purple
Discard a character in battle and choose a new evil character to block. Opponent must discard an evil card from hand or banish their discard pile.
-David relentlessly pursued these guys so why not kill one, choose another, then kill a card from their hand?

Davidís Spoil/Plunder which sounds better, spoil or plunder? Based on NIV/King James
1 Sam 30:20
3/0 Green, red, purple
Star: Search deck for an animal
TC: Capture an opponentís animal. Draw 1. Take a city, artifact, and fortress.
-David won a LOT of battles, itís only fair to take a spot in a deck that is not necessarily a battle winner by ensuring you get a lot of reward for using it.

Elders of Judah (David gave spoils to them)
1 Sam 30:26
7/5 Purple
Negate all cards except cards with David in the title or special ability. May play cards with David in the title regardless of brigade.
-Once again, a sneaky little make his ability work through wording. Since his special ability says David, he works and allows David cards to work. David gave them spoils from war, I thought it was cool to have his numbers as 7/5 so he gives away some initiative. He can play Bravery of David but the reason they won spoils were due to his bravery. Itís strong but not too strong, no stronger than Asahel ctb Bravery...

Philistine Slaughter

3/2 Purple/Red
Star: Look at the bottom five cards of deck, topdeck a card with discard in the special ability.

-So I feel for Abner. He was an obedient officer to King Saul, was chased by Asahel, told him repeatedly to stop chasing him, Asahel didnít so Abner killed him. Eventually David sent for him, they left in a peaceful agreement. Joab was angry because Asahel was his brother so he deceived Abner to bring him back and Joab and his brother, Abishai killed Abner after he said he was cool with David.

Just a heads up before commenting, I took at least 8 hours reading about 1-2 Samuel and saw so many amazing abilities. So before you say anything about, this is too strong, this is no good or makes no sense, please read your comment prior to posting. I would love some constructive feedback, or questions about my thought process or if you see something is inaccurate. I think this game is amazing and what's even better, and Gabe and I have talked about this before, is that however amazing the game is, it still has not scratched the but a small amount of content in the Bible.
I initially was reading 1 Samuel and trying to find a potential fun counter to Ahimelek and I ended up making a 53 (if I counted right) miniature set about 1-2 Samuel. I hope you enjoy! I had a great time making these and will continue to finish 2 Samuel. I also started at 1 Samuel chapter 25, so I also have a lot to go over prior to that. I would like to finish this miniature set for another 47 cards for a solid 100 covering all of Samuel.

I don't have any specific comments at the moment and haven't even read all these ideas yet. I just wanted to take a moment to say that I love seeing the creativity flow! 8)

This is awesome! I love 1 and 2 Samuel as well and think this would be great either for a future set or for new Starters!  8)

I also totally agree about Redemption having only scratched the surface of Bible content - the Bible is just so vast! Great job, and I would add that I'd love to see reprints of these characters/cards (and more):

- David, the Warrior (straight red BOSS version)
- Goliath
- Goliath's brothers (Ishbibenob, Saph, Lahmi, and The 12-Fingered Giant)
- Abner
- Absalom
- Amasa
- Ahimelech the priest
- Hushai, David's Friend
- Gad (the prophet)
- Goliath's sword
- David's sling
- The Mighty Men who still need reprints, especially Abishai. Also there's 30+ mighty men so many more could be printed

There's a ton more, these are just off the top of my head!

Also I think it would be awesome to incorporate the concept of being "anointed" - when the Holy Spirit comes upon someone to specially empower/equip them. This is an important theme in 1-2 Samuel - David was anointed overall and at special times, whereas Saul was initially anointed when he first became king, but lost his anointing through disobedience. Also the Mighty Men had some serious anointing going on!!  :o Something like a card that is placed on a Hero (could even be a dominant) that then makes that Hero extremely difficult to deal with.

Nabal
1 Sam 25:3
5/7 Brown
TC: Negate protect abilities. If blocking,opponent must discard a good card from hand. If it was a dominant, protect lost souls from being rescued by a hero, cannot be negated.

I think he is hilarious. So his story is interesting; David shows up and takes a liking to his wife. David had his men watch Nabalís shepherds then demanded gifts because his men did not steal from them and because his men were nice to Nabalís shepherds. Just think about that for a second. I know Nabal was portrayed as a mean dude and a bad husband, and I am sure he was, but if someone demanded gifts because his guys did not steal from my guys I would probably question it too. Nabal questioned this but also did not help David, I think I would have helped him. So his wife gave David a bunch of food and wine without him knowing. So I thought his ability would be fun to contradict itself since Abigail contradicted him. He negates protect abilities but if you discard a good dominant lost souls are protected and his ability cannot be negated. His TC negating protect abilities is very nice and helps with targeting your opponentís hand with Abigail/shearing sheep. I thought it was funny. Might be confusing for new players but what card isnít?
David asked for what he asked for because that was what was expected according to the customs of the time.  I would suggest doing some research on the time period. I think you'll find it very interesting and I think you'd be able to really fine tune some of the abilities.  I haven't got further than this idea but so far I think you've done a really good job.
May you prosper greatly!

Saul, the Benjamite. 1 Sam 9:21 1/12 Purple Hero
Star: Topdeck a card from reserve with Saul in the title

The star ability would be able to target Saul/Paul. Maybe it should read ď...with ďKing SaulĒ or ďKing SaulísĒ in the title.

Hmmm Iíll say O.T. Saul reference idk because I planned on making a card with Saulís name in the title today or tomorrow. Good catch though, it does need to be fixed.

Thanks Sean, Iíll look more into it. Obviously I will only know customs that I have been thought in history classes or just what I know so certain things, like you mentioned, I would have no way of knowing if itís not in the Bible. Itís funny though because me and Derek were talking about Peninnah and he made her before I did and had her solely as an EC and I have her as both an EC and hero. It looks as though over time what society has deemed as not evil or acceptable might have more of an influence over me than what I thought. Not that I think taunting and treating guests rudely is ok, just thinking out loud. Thanks for the feedback so far, Iíll edit some.

I've looked through the first 2 posts and still think you've done really well.  I was thinking over the weekend how it would be cool to have decks that would be entirely from one book (mostly because I really like the Daniel theme) but you're work here is exactly what I was thinking.  Maybe that's how we could create those special theme decks that were being talked about instead of regular starters.
May you prosper greatly!

Thereís so much in both Samuels, particularly 1 Samuel. Iconic characters, evil characters, miracles, itís insane. Itís easy to do an entire set from 1-2 Samuel. Iíve created 80 or so in two days so imagine what a team of experience could do. But once again, thanks for the feedback and comments!

So I finished going through these and you've got a lot a really great ideas.  I am wondering a couple things.

1. I'm not sure your use of star abilities is in line with the purpose of star abilities.  I thought they were all related to prophesy?  Or maybe I am off?
2. You've got a lot of offering cards and some of them I think will fit the definition of offering for Redemption but not all of them.  You may actually be better served creating a new definition that you could use instead of offering.
3. Aren't evil priests usually gray now?  You've got Hophni and Phinehas as Palegreen which is their Priest set version brigade but I would think they'd end up gray now.

I think you've done an excellent job.  The biggest thing I noticed is that the wording on a lot of these would just need to be tweeked to be in line with the grammar, terms, and format for the game.  I'm talked about things like using "banish" instead of "remove from the game"  There are a few I think would be too strong (especially that one that exchanges with a star card) but overall I think these are pretty balanced too.
May you prosper greatly!

Thanks Sean and yeah Star was in line with prophesy but I love the ability so why not use it for other cards and continue to stretch the game? I personally do not consider it like a non warrior being WC being thatís cool. I think star abilities can be given to other cards but if the elder team wants to keep it to prophetic acts then thatís fine! This is a made up set anyway lol I could do new stuff with offering and the Israelites did so many offerings and I feel like Redemption really only touches on some offerings with teal only instead of how many sacrifices the Israelites did.
Funny you mention that about gray and pale green. I was going to post a disclaimer about that. I was not sure what color to put them in so they could easily go to gray, Iím fine with that.
Awesome comments and remarks Sean. Thanks for taking the time to read over everything.

I think as evil Israelites they would probably be brown.

Haven't had time to look through all of these yet, but I like what I've seen thus far. Lots of untapped potential in these books.
