Promo card ideas

Rob said that he would agree to create a promo card that I would be able to give as a way of promoting my latest chapter book. Nothing that would create headaches for players, just a card with a cool looking character or enhancement. 

I am soliciting ideas, artwork, special ability (nothing game changing).

I’m sure you would get credit for the design. I expect the book to be in print before the end of this year.

Thanks for your time and consideration. I hope to see you all at Nats.

Sounds super awesome! Does this card have to do with your book, or can it be anything?

I'll second this. Something that ties in with the book would be cool - not to mention that we'll have some interest  ;)

Are you thinking something specific, like a character that hasn't been printed in a while, or something more generic, like a general concept that helps a variety of themes?

The longer everything goes to plan, the bigger the impending disaster.

Thanks for showing interest. Characters or enhancements. Nothing game changing could be a previously printed card with an ability or different art wrk. One chapter in my book deals with how a trio of brothers come home with a sealed deck and learn how to play. Later in the book, while the oldest brother is camping with his class, he introduces the game to his friends.

Maybe something like this? Obviously with a higher resolution image, but I think it's a crime to not have a card with the Reassuring Angel (Ap) art be playable. *Or named- Wordbringer


Or maybe just, "May band to a Hero." I think it's simple enough either way.

Cool idea- I think more special promos would be great! 8)

Absentmindedly glancing at this unimpressive signature fills you with determination.

If it's a promo it won't be used during a sealed event.

Yes, my post was originally in jest. Just for fun and based on the story (hence the sealed part).  However, I do think it would be cool to be able to exchange with a card outside of the drafted cards, but in a way that could not be something OP.

Anyway, you are right. It would just need to be something other than a promo in order for that to work.

I'll periodically update this post with new cards I make. there won't really be a theme, but they will all be fun but fairly simple cards. here's the first one!

I'll be honest, this second one may be busted with Hidden Treasures, but maybe it's fine, idk.

On a slightly different vein from the others, how about an enhancement about one of the many redemptions in the bible? And because Photoshop is a thing and poor impulse control when it's involved, here's a pretty(ish) look at what it may look like:

Hey Terry, I know we talked a bit at Nats about the card stuff and I drew up one for ya. I figured since the book revolved around children the card that came with it should follow a similar idea. It's not perfect though, the program I use on my computer doesn't have the exact font that the cards use for the title and the numbers in the icon box, but I hope you like it anyway. I can make changes if it isn't exactly what you want, so criticism is welcome.
