I know I am not the first and certainly not the last but I think KI(KingsIsle) should make a trading card game of W101. This could be done one (or both) of two ways:
1) The normal way - You can buy cards like the graphic cards from W101 and simulate a battle.
2)My way. You buy a starter pack which contains 4 items: - Character Drive - This would be a USB Drive that you plug into your computer and download your character's information. Once you have downloaded the information, You plug it into - Character Hub - This would be a semi-sphere with a slot for the character drive. When it is plugged in it displays an image of your character on the screen - Mat - This doesn't need a lot of explanation. It would be a mat that helps you lay out you cards correctly -Cards - Instead of paper cards, make cards that displayed a virtual image of the attacks. The Electronic Cards would have a discard button too.
why does this remind me so much of Yu-Gi-Oh?.............
I am SO there dude. I mean the Chaotic is closer. Even still, Yu-Gi-Oh fans would play then. Oh and as a bonus your sphere has several slots for charter drives! Oh and a contention to the site so others can challenge you on line. Like PVP! USB lets the INTERNET challenges carry to your sphere! Your character drive would have standard slots: Wizard's name, Wizard's school etc. Then when you log in to a character, the character drive takes the data and adds it to the slots. Yea or Ne?
I think that would be a great idea. However, what about charms, wards, and traps? What about instead a usb feature, what if themat could connect to the internet and receive character and card updates? Afterall, thereare more cards being created.u]
1: How would Kingsisle make this? Probably hard considering the curcuitry, and other dilemmas.
2: How many people would buy it, and how would they make it protected from piracy? I'm not too sure this would be a big hit, but hey! I've been wrong before. A game for a USB could be a problem. (Piracy and things like that)
the usb doesn't have to be a usb but something that just holds the characters appearance. the circuits would be hard but hey, you never know. one way to get it to look cool is that the dome looks like the field and there is a barcode on each card. when it is scanned, the dome knows which card to simulate and you could get xp and transfer it back to the game as well.
