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.

Deep within the Additional Downloads (http://msetemps.sourceforge.net/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=144, the 7th block of templates) is a link to the "Magic - Unset Styles" grouping of templates. I am trying to use the 'Greater Morphling' template but it is missing the card type line.
Attached is a screen shot of the missing type field.

EDIT: So on my end, I did a quick and dirty learning of the template making process and just fixed it for myself. As a heads up, it looks like the greater Morphling template is trying to grab an 'Identity' field and it's not finding one?

Is there a way to have "paragraph height" scriptable?

If there isn't, how is "content lines" used or referenced?

MSE2 tells me "variable is not set" if I try to use it. But "content lines" is supposed to be automatic.

I'm trying to have paragraphs separate more or less according to the space needed.

Hey there. I was looking around for a way to do this myself but have as of yet found a way.
Basically what I want is an altered M15 EXTRA template that's changed as follows.
Card backgrounds changed to the following colors (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Violet(pink), Indigo(purple), White, Black)
Have the backgrounds look kind of like hard/shimmering colored light (can be the same image recolored)
Have mana symbols and watermarks changed to each of the nine Lantern Corps symbols.
Nothing else changed.

The idea I'm going for here is a Green Lantern inspired set.

Working on a template, and I essentially have a highly customized watermarks file. I would prefer to keep the "standard" watermark folder unchanged, and have my templates point to a separate watermarks folder. Is this possible?

I see the counters templates point to a watermark-counter.mse-include, but I haven't been able to make something similar work.

Hey guys!
A lot of my MTG buddies have been enjoying the game "Sentinels of the Multiverse". It's a really similar game to Magic and is cooperative against central badguys.

I've been looking around and there doesn't seem to be an MSE Template for this card game. Totally should be! I'm willing to help and have experience with photoshop (etc), would just want someone to do it WITH!

Hey everyone ^.^'

So as the title implies, I started a card game project some time back and refined it into something incredible. The game itself has yet to receive a negative review, with over fifty testers (some friends, mostly randoms from local gaming groups). Either way the game's a hit, it's got a simple rule-set everyone understands by their second game but a subtle strategy that can really make a good player win with a sub-par deck.
