Hey RushingWind, if you are still game to do the poetic summaries, I saved a spot for them in the threads I made. =D

I am still very interested, but at the moment I am stretched so thin that I don't know if I can be considered reliable. :( I'll have a better idea on my ability to keep up with this project in about a week.

Nonsense! You'll always be reliable. And the project isn't going anywhere; finish whatever's stretching you then come join us elastics too.  :D Feel free to contribute however you like when you're free.

Don't worry! Have a cookie.

Does anyone object to removing "The" from the cards titles? It's weird having "The" all over the place, even if it's designed all fancy.

Thank you, Tushantin, heh.

I'm afraid that for the foreseeable future, I'm just simply not going to have the time to write these little poetic intros, even though I really want to (and by foreseeable future, I mean for many months). If a few months down the line, the project is still moving along slowly, perhaps I can return at that time. However, if someone else would like to step up in the meantime and write it, they are more than welcome to.

It's just not fair for me to commit when I can't actually devote the time to it. :(

Don't worry, RushingWind, we'll cover for you until you're able to return. Just take care of those important businesses. Things can be hard sometimes.

In any case, by the time you're back, we'll have some neat stuff to inspire you.  :wink:

Merry Christmas, folks!

I've been thinkin. The Chrono font we're using probably isn't a good idea...

Here's something else to consider. Pick your favorites (either from here or anything else you have in mind):

Those are my four favourites.
That's some fantastic taste, Saj!  :D

What do others feel?

Hmm. I'd probably go with Bolton as the least problematic from among your selections—the others are variously too narrow, too spindly, too blocky, poorly kerned, have variable-width lines whose thinnest points are too thin, or are just plain not to my taste.

I also like Bolton. It's the most legible & clearest without being too frilly.

Indeed, Bolton is the most balanced font that still captures the right feel. We'll stick with that.

Still curious: Anybody object to the removal of "The" from card titles?

I don't object. it's a bit redundant in this context.

Just a note for the team. I haven't been able to contribute as of late because my UPS is in repairs, and I can't wager my hardware and data on the inconsistency of power situations in my city (we have uncountable unannounced blackouts and fluctuations), but as soon as I'm back I'll lay in newer designs. Until then, any artist fancying to take control of their favorite card, make yourselves at home!
