Shena'Fu's Online Card Creator

## Instructions ##
* Mana symbols:

	* Valid mana characters are 0123456789bcefgkqrstuwxyz.
	* Hybrid and Phyrexian mana are in the form 2/c, c/2, c/d, d/c, p/c, c/p. (For example, 2/w w/p r/w)
	* To print mana symbols in the rules text, enclose the mana code in {}. (This is not necessary in the mana cost field.) (e.g. 2GG2/w is {2}{g}{g}{2/w})

* Rules text formatting:

	* Use ~ or ~this~ in the rules text to substitute in the card's name. Subsequent occurrences will replace with first name only. Also can use ~~ to substitute in just the first name (the part of the name before the first comma). ex.:
		* When ~ attacks...
		* ~~ deals damage...
	* Use () to italicise sentences along with the (). (i.e. reminder text.)
	* Use [] brackets to italicise words without the []. (i.e. ability words, vainwords.)
	* Use <> brackets to bold words without the <>.
	* Use __ underscores to underline words.
	* Use []: around a planeswalker's loyalty cost. ( [+1]: effect. )
	* Use * for bullet. (i.e. for list of choices.)
	* Use -- for —.
	* Use aliases between two @@ symbols. See Appendix A for available aliases.
	* Use <<<< to print to left column.
	* Use >>>> to print to right column.
	* Use <<>> to exit column mode.

* Flip and split cards: use ;; to separate each half in corresponding fields. (e.g. Fire;;Ice) For examples, see [Armed;;Dangerous](, [Fire;;Ice](, and [Budoka Gardener;;Dokai, Weaver of Life](

* Leveler cards:
	* Select frame Vogon HD or Vogon Full Art.
	* Use ;; to separate P/T and each level's rules texts.
	* Each level's rules text may start with level information enclosed within these brackets []{}()
	* For examples, see [Coralhelm Commander](

* Playing card options:

	* Rank = P/T
	* Suit = Set Icon or Mana Cost
	* Title = Subtype
	* Art and Rules + Flavor Text = Overlap in the center

* Genre alters the card types and supertypes.

* For set icon, all pixels with color value of #FF00FF (255, 0, 255) Magenta will be replaced with rarity color.
Default icon is [](

* Art, watermark, and set icon may have special instructions acted upon them, such as crop. At the end of the URL, put two hashes ##, then the instruction and parameters separated by commas. Split cards specify these instructions individually for each half.

	* ##crop, x, y, w, h
	* ex: (Ichorid from Gatherer),26,30,171,137
	* ex split cards: (Illusion;;Reality from Scryfall),0,0,377,254;;,377,0,377,254

* Creator is your name or handle, to differentiate from other creators. Cards that have the same card name and creator will also share the same URL for the image. In other words, the URL could be overwritten by someone else who uses the same card name and creator. So try to make your name unique.

* You can view a list of all your cards via [this Card List]( and add your creator name at the end of the URL address.

* Retrieve a previously created card that matches both card name and creator.

* It would behoove you to save the image on your hard drive and upload to your personal photo or image storage. Right-click on the image to bring up a menu. You can then save it to your hard drive and/or copy the image address.

* Scan the QR code with your mobile phone or tablet, and open the image using a browser app. Then save the image to the device.

* Discuss each individual card using a [Disqus]( account.

## Appendix A ##

Aliases will be automatically replace as you type them in the rules text. Enclose alias on the left column between two @@ symbols. For instance, @ett@ in rules text will become 'enters the battlefield tapped'. Some aliases have both lower- and upper-case versions. Some aliases will take a variable. For instance @dd2@ becomes 'deals 2 damage', and @g+1@ becomes 'get +1/+1', and @ctr+1/+1@ becomes 'put a +1/+1 counter on'.
