So this isn't exactly a game nor a contest, but this is the best place I could think to put this. @Any Mod, please move it if there's a more appropriate place for it.
So lately, I've had this urge to design some cards but I always have the same problem: I have no ideas. So I'd started asking various people, "Hey, give me a design prompt, will ya?" and I've done a few here and there. But I want to do MORE than that.
I want a place where one can go to look at a list of given prompts, a place with prompts by the bucketload and just be able to design a card based off that prompt. They can share it here if they want, but they don't have to. And that's where everyone else comes in. I want people to come in and give prompts, and just leave them as a comment or give their own card they made off the prompt, or anything like that!
Listen, I know there's about 16 ways I can probably make this into a proper game, but I want that to not be the point. Designing of a specific prompt of a winner each week? That already exists; it's called the Card of the Week contests. The point here is that there is no contest-- just a place where one can be given a spark of creativeness simply by looking at some prompts. And I don't want a time limit, because I LOVE the CotW contests (And now that I've found it, challenge slots), but it's one card a week and it's a pain to scroll through every CotW contest-- plus, there's a finite amount of those. So, I just want a giant list of prompts that can be given.
Now, what do I mean by prompt? I'm glad you asked! A prompt can be anything from flavor-standpoint:
"Design a card that is flavorful with another/[insert card here]."
"Design a creature that has an ability equivalent of a non-creature keyword."
from specific art:
"Design a card based off of this: [insert art here]"
And anything else you can think of!
I'll compile a list of prompts on this original post from suggestions below(with appropriate credit), because searching through a lot of comments can be frustrating(if we get that far). I'll also start off with a list right now, from various ones I've thought of/have done myself.
Design a card that is flavorful with another.
(Note: If a prompt you suggested is not added when others are, that means I have A) missed yours or B) there is one already extremely similar/is that exact prompt already on the list. Please contact me if you think I have missed a prompt you have suggested.)
As you can see, they can be incredibly narrow or vague, too.
I will attempt to update this list, at the earliest the minute they're posted in case I'm prowling, and at the latest 3 days-- but expect 1 or 2 most of the time.
These are just a few to start with! So, let's get thinking, shall we? I look forward to seeing what prompts people come up with!
