Overview
What is MycenaDeck?

MycenaDeck is a forum activity inviting players to create playing cards to add to the MycenaDeck!  These cards will give a little insight into both the players that make up our community as well as the characters they’ve created.  By the end of this activity, we hope to have a thick deck representing the rainbow of diversity found throughout the Cave!

When does this activity run?

This activity will run from June 21st (now) through 23:59 July 5th! Submission form will be open until 23:59 July 12th, and the raffles will happen the weekend of July 13th.

The submission form is here! Please do not fill it out until you are finished with your submissions.

FAQ

May I make my own card template or alter the .psd template card provided?

Yes!  If you make your own, there are no size constraints, so feel free to make your card whatever shape and size you want.

When should I fill out the submission form?

When you are finished with both character deck and community deck submissions or whenever you are sure you are finished with the activity. You can fill out the submission form up to a week after the activity ends, so there is no need to fill it out early unless you are sure you are finished.  Do not fill it out with links to entries that have not yet been completed (e.g. placeholder or WIP entries).

May I use the cards I create/card template outside of the event, or make an actual game out of the cards?

You may use your cards and card templates outside of the event!  You may also use your cards to make an actual game.  However, please do not use other player’s cards/submissions without their permission.

May I make more than one card per category?

Sure!  You won’t receive additional participation prizes or raffle tickets, but you’re free to create more for fun.

Fun! Do have a couple questions though:

-Are the cards going to be compiled/used for something later?
-Are we allowed to make multiple submissions? (Largely for fun porpoises.)

Posted Jun 21, edited Jun 21

polygone  I want to try to find a fun way to display them just because it’d be fun to be able to see them all together but I’m not exactly sure how yet!

And sure, you can make multiple submissions! Only one from each category will count for the participation prize/raffle ticket though. :D

SO this is perhaps too ambitious but if we were to do something over-the-top (like say, reskin pairs with site pets and/or our personal customs), would we have permission to actually print a personal deck for ourselves (via a print shop or artscow or similar), granted there was no selling, using others’ pets without permission, or anything exchanging hands and those files weren’t widely/publicly available?

edit: I ended up reskinnig Love Letter but have decided to use other customs and so I won’t print it physically.

Could we use a photo of our irl pets or memento of some sort to represent ourselves for the community deck as long as it was our own photography? I’m debating just using a pic of myself, but it might be cute to use my birds instead.

Also, I’m really digging this event and the templates are cool! Would it be alright to use them for future personal use as long as it was on mycena only? I kinda want to use them for ID cards in my cavern one day if I’m not too lazy. o:

i have a question for the art stuff mostly! is there a size/scale constraint for the cards we have to stick to?
Posted Jun 22

Jacq That sounds awesome! I don’t see why not. :D

Corvani  Yes, using a picture you took of a pet/memento to represent yourself is fine!  You may use the cards outside of this event too—I’ll make sure to put them in misc. images. OuO

Celestine  No size/scale constraints!

Myla Ahh awesome! Thanks! :)

If i write out a description of a game for a writing centred entry, can we include a board of some sort? or does it have be confined to cards?
Posted Jul 3
Elfe You may include a board for the writing-centered activity, but you would still need a card as well!
Posted Jul 3

Turns out its a moot point - sorry to have bothered you, i’m just frantically juggling ideas (I really wanted to do an art segment card but then busted my arm too badly for art by writing an exam T_T its been a week and its still agony), but now i have another question.

I’m struggling to come up with actual… RULES for the game i want to outline. Can I just vague for 200 words about the kind of tone the game has rather than trying to write rules for it, like talk about what sort of game it is, rather than how its played?

Posted Jul 3
Elfe That sounds fine.  I hope your arm starts feeling better!

Reminder: this activity ends tonight!

I’m loving all the entries! Remember to fill out a submission form after you’re finished (submission form is open until the end of the 12th)!

; A ; I forgot to link to Ilya’s profile in my post!!! Am I not gonna receive credit?
Posted Jul 6
Tamako Anyone with a character submission who doesn’t have a link to their character’s profile I will be checking manually—you’ll receive credit as long as your character is represented by an MC pet!
Posted Jul 6
Oh thank goodness, thank you, Myla! ; ; I’m so sorry for the trouble! ; o ;
Posted Jul 6
No problem!  I know you aren’t the only one who forgot; it was an easy thing to miss!
Posted Jul 6
I forgot to link mine too (and didn’t use her name since I’m still going back and forth on it), but her image is used on the card so is that good enough to show which pet it was?
Posted Jul 7

Just realized all the “or” s in the rules ^^;

My writing submission for the community deck is the “how does this card represent you” prompt but since I figured just the card name wouldn’t be enough to go off of, I added a short upright and reverse text to explain a bit more how I view the cards use.

The representation text alone is over 200 words but I am a bit worried that having both prompts present in my entry is confusing. Will I still receive credit?

Posted Jul 8
Is it possible we could see a fullsize of the Inner Peace BG? :D
Posted Jul 9

Nephele It’d be helpful if you could temporarily name your pet whatever the character name is until the prizes are distributed!

Madara  That’s fine; you’ll still get credit!

Purr

Posted Jul 11
Thank you Myla! I have the pet the same name as the card for now.
Posted Jul 11

That is just the best background eeee

Myla glitch any chance there could maybe be an ‘in yer face’ banner reminder for the form submission? :)

Posted Jul 11
Tsaiah  We have a banner that’ll automatically pop up at midnight (for those who posted in the submissions threads)! :D
Posted Jul 11, edited Jul 11

Posted Jul 13

Wow! Looking at these together, it would be so cool to get prints of these on playing-card stock. No idea what one could do with them, but still :D
Posted Jul 14

AHHH THEY LOOK AMAZING TOGETHER
