Design Team update: MIke and I wrapped up design of the Bloodlines set tonight. 41 cards (20 crypt, 21 library) covering Blood Brothers, Gargoyles, !Salubri, Harbingers, and Samedi. We'll send it to White Wolf for review, then we'll start playtesting.
Significant progress on the new set was made tonight. Library cards for !Salubri, Blood Brothers, and Harbingers just about set. Still a bunch of work to be done on library cards for Gargoyles and Samedi.
Tournament Rules Change
After several years of suggestion from players, discussion, debating amongst the NCs and Inner Circle, we have submitted a rule change to Paradox, and we are happy to report their support on the following points :
"As long as the game is not under production, the organizer of an event can choose to allow proxy cards in his or her event. For events where proxy cards are allowed, several points apply:
- there are no limit to the number of proxy cards a deck can have
- every proxy card must be a color-copy of the original card, on standard paper
- the quality of the print must allow the reading of the illustrator's name
- the organizer must mark the event as 'allowing proxy cards' on the VEKN calendar"
As for VEKN-issued cards, proxy-cards would have to be inserted in an opaque sleeve (along the rest of the crypt and/or library), before a regular VTES card.
This change in the Tournament Rules will not apply to National Championships and Continental Championships.
This RTR will be effective for events created for August 6th 2016 and later (this includes events held on August 6th, 2016).
As we just received their answer, the implementation of the checkbox on the Event Module Creation isn't fully complete, and we kindly ask for your patience before creating Proxy-allowing events (it shouldn't take long).
