The Xtreme Philosopher's Statcard

Postby Hevyneon » Wed May 27, 2009 5:01 am

After reading up on the Xtreme Philosopher thread, I got the sudden urge to make a statcard for it. It's my first one, and I used it making GIMP, so it may not be beautiful. But at least it's something.

<a href="http://s700.photobucket.com/albums/ww7/hevyneon/?action=view&current=XtremePhilosopher.png" target="_blank"><img src="http://i700.photobucket.com/albums/ww7/hevyneon/XtremePhilosopher.png" border="0" alt="Brikwars,Statcards"></a>

I got the picture off of here.

For the life of me I cannot figure out how to put the link into a word. Any help would be appreciated.

That's quite a pessimistic philosopher. I suggest that if the philosopher wins the roll, the target understands his point of view and joins the philosopher's army. If the target wins, he gets mad at talky-man and must attack him in his next turn.

Well the Xtreme Philosopher and the Philosopher King can be different units.

Edit: Added colored background. If it still looks grey, hit refresh

Edit 2: Ok, here's version 3, now 30% shinier!

Why does nobody colour the card?

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

well I usually do, but I couldn't find a color that looked good with that image other than the default blue. But why use default blue?

I'd have used the red from his shirt and epaulettes. The blue blends too much with the background and cape.

I tried that red first but it really didn't look so good. Also I already have at least one stat card with a red background so I wanted this one to be unique

It's a bit yellow as you say but better than the blue as Blitzen pointed out. Is there a Silver or is that just grey?

haha, so you want me to go from gray to blue to gold to gray?

Nah, I think I'm going to leave it like this because I'm too lazy to change it again. Silver would be a cool border for the next one, though.

Haha, sorry. I had to try. Still it looks fine and I like the stats. I'd like to see stats for the Philosophers Arch Nemesis. That could be fun too.
