DCU

As some of you may know, I spent the last few months working with a few people from VSrealms on a fantasy card set. I know that fantasy card sets aren't that popular, but I enjoy creating them - and more than that, I thought that this one was important because of the uncertain future between DC and UDE.

We decided to make a DC Universe set, to match UDE's Marvel Universe set. We took some votes, and then we slowly but surely began to build a 330 card set. It's not perfect, and I apologize. We don't have the resources that the actual R&D has, nor do we have the practice, nor, I suspect, the flat-out skill. But we still feel that we made a fairly good companion set to Marvel Universe, and we wanted to show it off.

However, on VSrealms, we quickly realized that we would be banished out of the General Discussion section - and as you all know, if you aren't in the General Discussion section, you don't get a whole lot of notice. We wanted out work to be seen, but more than that, we have set up a preview season in which any member of the VSrealms community could preview a card. People seemed to enjoy the idea, but it's a pain to write the preview article (or, you know, create a 330 card set) and have no one see it.

So, we created this blog
http://dcupreviews.wordpress.com/
to get the previews out. Soon it will be updating via the Syndicate and getting votes on Kamiza's great site, hopefully garnering a little bit more notice. I urge all you people reading my blog - yes, all 3 of you, no exceptions now - to check out that site, and the Fantasy Cards section of VSrealms.com at some point, and let everyone know what you think of the preview articles and of the cards.

Thanks, and have a great day!

Glad you enjoyed it. We had fun making 'em - though, I will say, I don't think we're seeing a card that I had a hand in until week 4.
