Get ready to BLAST! Starting from 1st level, you become one of the few, the proud, the people who spent money on an expensive card game! Armed with your blasting device (sold separately), your licensed Starter Blaster deck, and the limitless power of your artificial scarcity, you’re ready to play!
Take the rules below to heart and blast the cards of your ventricles through the souls of your foes!
The power of friendship isn’t just for your friends with free will! At 1st level, you learn how to rely on your monsters like they rely on you! If a monster you summon is next to you when you would suffer damage from a foe’s attack, you can have it absorb all or part of the damage! With friendship!
The bond between a Card Blaster and her monsters can coalesce into a cascade of customization! Beginning at 2nd level, you gain the ability to add special abilities to your monsters! At the start of each day, you may choose one of the special abilities from the card generation section and apply it to a monster when you summon it or any time after! Your friendship is only so strong, though, so you can only have one monster taking advantage of it at a time!
Being a Card Blaster means constantly testing yourself against the strongest rivals! You don’t only need experience Points to level up, you must also defeat at least one Card Blaster of a higher level! With both criterion met, you gain the full rights, responsibilities, and skills of a Card Blaster of your new level! Some powerful foes may even reward you with special cards or other gifts such as booster packs!
The greatest Card Blasters win the true battle before their monsters even clash by impressing their opponents! From 2nd level forward, you may take a full-round action to change the weather in your immediate environment to suit your dramatic needs! This usually means holographic dramatic wind or stormy weather, but your imagination is the limit! You can’t affect anything more than 100 feet away, though, or directly damage or otherwise affect anyone, but when you use Dramatic Effects, all opponents must make Will saves (DC 10 + ½ your Card Blaster Level + your CHA modifier), or else suffer a -2 penalty to resist the effects of Intimidate checks by you and your allies!
Go, Ichibii! Go MickeyBii! Transmute into… Ichibuck McBii! With this 2nd level ability, you learn how to combine two monsters into one powerful warrior! Once per battle, you may choose a monster you have already played and combine it with another monster in your hand! The resulting monster gains all special abilities and equipment from both monsters, and the best attributes between the two! In addition, it is healed for the difference between its old and new maximum HP! Transmuting is a standard action and the Transmuted monster may act immediately instead of waiting a turn!
Card Blasting is hard work for both you and your team, but it pays off in the long term! Starting at 3rd level, you may begin each day by rolling on the equipment generation table below, taking the result as a bonus equal to your CHA modifier for all monsters you control!
Training from Hell
The path of a Card Blaster is never easy, but such difficulties only make her and her team stronger! Beginning at 5th level, you may recall the lessons you have learned through your struggles and intense training when the situation turns dire! Whenever you are at or below half your maximum HP, you gain a +1 bonus on attack rolls, saving throws, and skill checks! Not only that, but your monsters share your same benefits!
Ichibuck McBii, it’s time to show them what we’re really made of–Double Transmute into Ichibuck Killotron! This 5th level ability lets you transmute monster a second time, adding the abilities and attributes of another monster from your hand to a monster you previously transmuted!
Call Your Buff
The strength and courage of a Card Blaster is only matched by their cunning and foresight! At 6th level, you gain the ability to decide which attribute is improved by your Daily Buff, instead of rolling for it! In addition, you may use any attribute to determine the size of this bonus!
Rules of Blasting
A legal Card Blasting deck consists of 12 cards in any combination of Monster, Spell, and Equipment cards. Card Blasters may also carry up to 6 cards as a sideboard, and may substitute them between battles. Any substitutions to either the main deck or the sideboard may be performed at the beginning of the day, or any time a Blaster has an hour’s downtime.
There are three kinds of card: Monster, Spell, and Equipment. Monster cards summon a creature to the field under the Card Blaster’s control. Equipment cards are applied to a monster, and improve one of its attributes. Spell cards apply an effect directly to a target creature or area.
Cards have varying action time, depending on type and power. Monster cards always require a standard action to apply while equipment cards always require a move-equivalent action. Spell cards may vary from immediate action to full-round actions. Certain cards may have abilities which contradict these rules, in which case the card’s ability takes priority.
A Card Blaster may only have 5 cards in his or her hand at a time, but may have any number of cards in play. When a card is used or destroyed, it is sent to the discard pile. A Card Blaster who does not have any cards in his or her hand or in play may pick up the discard pile, shuffle, and continue play.
A Card Blaster may summon up to three monsters at a time. Monsters act on the Card Blaster’s turn, but may act either before, during, or after the Card Blaster’s own actions. This monster may only attack opponents, and cannot damage structures or carry individuals or objects.
A Card Blaster may summon a monster at or below their Blasting Power without penalty. Attempting to summon a monster above this threshold requires a Charisma check with a DC equal to 10 + the difference between the Card Blaster’s Blasting Power and the power of the card. Failure wastes the Card Blaster’s action and sends the card to the discard pile.
A monster may fight as long as it has at least 1 HP. A monster reduced to 0 HP is immediately removed from the battlefield and its card sent to the discard pile. If a Card Blaster is knocked unconscious, all summoned monsters are immediately removed from the battlefield.
Ending a Match
A sanctioned match ends when only one Card Blaster or group of Card Blasters is still able to fight, whether by knocking the opposing Card Blasters out, or otherwise rendering them unable or unwilling to continue the match. Unsanctioned matches may abide by these rules, or may follow their own logic.
Booster Packs give a Card Blaster a chance to acquire new and more powerful cards. Each Booster Pack contains 3 cards, the variation in which is shown below. When creating a monster, roll the indicated dice on the Monster Generation Tables to determine attributes and abilities (if any).
Basic – S$25, Roll 3d4 for monsters. Singlet – S$50
Advanced – S$100, roll 3d6 for monsters. Singlet – S$250
Expert – S$500, roll 3d8 for monsters. Singlet – S$1500
When drawing from booster pack, roll 1d20.
All monsters have 10 AC and 10s in all ability scores. Monsters have one good saving throw, assigned by their owners. This can potentially be modified by special cards.
