Alright, opening this up for discussion now. If you're unfamiliar with the frames or mechanics involved, see here: http://wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/feature/157b

Current Progress:
The regular frames and template are complete. Be sure to thank Shiv for doing the hard part!

Most templates that are requested are never made. Why? There are a couple of reasons. First, if you're doing a custom game out of your own imagination, most templaters aren't going to be interested in making it for you. In my personal experience, custom game designers that happen in here are doing it on a whim, and don't really want to put forth the effort required for this sort of thing. Often, they lose interest, and any work the templater has done is then wasted. Second, many people who request a template for an existing game are again not interested in doing the work. Here's some information about what is required to make a template for game that already exists.

Okay, so I'm using the VS Standard template that comes with MSE. I want to change the border color of the card for some cards and realized that I'll likely need to add that image as a separate style.

I'd like to add 3 new options to this section:

Could someone help me go about that? I'd really like to just add the options to the VS System as I already have 180 cards made. I just need a few more styling options that look like the following.

I am trying to have the color of the card name to change depending on the card type. I've tried the below and similar methods with no luck.

Probably should have been my first post, basically does anyone thing a template (or series of them) would work for this game? To take a look at the blanks look here https://www.mediafire.com/folder/0upd3xfn50tk5/Pathfinder Not sure if they're doable or not.

I've read through all the documentation I can find, but I'm still having problems defining a "map". I would like to use a map for determining the positions of fields, so that several different card frames/types can have the same fields, just moved around, without having a long string of if-checks.

I'm currently creating a template for the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, and one of the card types does not have a visible name at all, the "Adventure Path" card.

Is there any way that I can reference (the name of) a card's style by using script?

I'm looking to default the name of the card if the card is using a specific style, or even to simply default the name of every card to the name of its style.

Is this sort of thing possible?

Many thanks for any and all assistance.

So this thread will be about making a newer black card frame. In the theros block we had a new card frame for enchantment hybrids. They included black. However what was most prominent in the god template was the use of purple. I feel that the old miracle black frame does not quite look right. then again neither does this thing i made.

Help please?
