More Full Bleed cards (as presented on vekn.net). The creator of these VTES card variants, self-biased, has posted a few new of these “Full Bleed” cards, this time with an emphasis on cards different crypt card layouts.
The full post has three additional vampires (Yasmin the Black, Aisata Swanou, and Shahara al-Rashwa with the same set of variations.

More Full Bleed cards (as presented on vekn.net). This time I am bit late, self-biased has already posted the variations of the Saatet-ta ally card last on vekn.net. The variations of these Full Bleed cards, beside the basic design, show how the different icons for requirements, card type, cost, etc. could be placed. Please remember, these are experimental designs, and are not part of the work of the VEKN design team.
Along with the some Full Bleed cards (as presented on vekn.net) with an updated layout where presented and discussed, also a number of different variations of crypt cards. I’d like to summarize the different variations here, so you can see what cards could look like with different designs:
Most of the card designs have been done by selfbiased, but there were also some contributions by Damnans and Lönkka.
I don’t think there’s a single best layout out there. In the end it’s mostly a personal preference what looks good. The only thing I’d advocate is that the card layout should do its job, that is present the information of card (like clan, disciplines, special abilities, etc.) in clear concise way.
More Full Bleed cards on vekn.net. Again posted by selfbiased from both Danse Macabre and The Unaligned are shown, bu this time with two variants each:
Today on vekn.net one of board member, self biased, has posted another round of his his full bleed card design. This time vampires from both Danse Macabre and The Unaligned are shown. Really nice to behold:
On vekn.net one of members, self biased, has posted nine full bleed cards of the well-known VtM clan novel characters. I don’t repost stuff on a regular basis, but this is an exception to the rules, because these cards are looking so gorgeous. Bleed is a printing term, and a full bleed image extends or “bleeds” over the edges of a page, that is there are no distinctive borders.
According to Webster a powerbase is defined as “a base of political support“. Powerbases in VtES are master cards (unique locations) which provide some (more or less) significant advantage, but at the same time can either be destroyed or stolen by another player. Currently there are 15 different Powerbases, some of them you can see quite regularly played (Powerbase: Montreal for example, whereas other you see virtually never (Powerbase: New York). I would like to give you an quick pro/con overview of the 15 Powerbases in VtESand a rating for them (ranging from 1 to 5, 1 being the lowest score and 5 the highest).
- Powerbase: Barranquilla
- Pro: Can be a huge pool gain when choosing a high capacity Sabbat vampires. The pool cannot be stolen, only burned, so there’s less incentive for the opposing players to take action (as compared to Powerbase: Mexico or New York).
- Con: Titled vampires get +1 stealth when trying to remove the card.
- Rating: 3-4
- Powerbase: Berlin
- Pro: Can only be removed by calling a successful referendum.
- Con: Intercept to block political actions is normally not too useful for the Ventrue, which are typically not your wall deck. And the Ventrue decks usually have enough titles to handle referendums by other players. All these are reasons you never see this card played.
- Rating: 1
As a follow-up to the Global Financial Crisis we need this card being introduced to VtES sooner or later:
Stock Market Crash
If any player’s pool is even during his untap phase, he loses half it to the blood bank. If it is uneven, he adds one pool from the blood bank. Remove this event during this player’s next discard phase.

After seeing some other TV shows’ characters used for VtES crypt cards on the Spanish “VtES card creation” website, I felt the urge to do the same with the main characters from 30 Rock, an American sitcom now in its 3rd season. I think Liz would be proud of me .. and her being on a CCG card.
