VERY happy with how this turned out!
I knew I had to do something different for Arceus, but I rejected my first idea of making plate item cards that you attach to give Arceus its type… because I have no intentions of making items a thing in this game since there’s already enough going on!
I needed to incorporate 3 things into this card: raw power, multitype, and Judgment. Multitype became a type all to its own (which required me to learn how to evenly segment a circle in PS - fun!) and I think it’s a fairly intuitive complication. Each time Arceus’ type needs to be checked, you just roll 3 dice, total it up, and that number will correspond with a type, listed on a rules insert that comes in the Hall of Origin set.
Judgment is wishy-washy, but once you get Arceus going it can be a killer (as any God should be).
Writing Arceus helped me decide to include one or two mini-sets devoted to a single Pokemon. These super-small sets will have a special area, maybe a route, and a little rules insert describing what’s up. Simple and effective!
