What gave you the inspiration for the semi-inverted color scheme?

It's stunning by the way.  Huh

Bicycle actually makes cards like this, although I scanned and used the image of a standard card to fit the rok proportions better.

It would be cool to have a complete set of face cards for Rok Battles.   Smiley

The announcer would have fun with it.

Not that you'd want to build a dozen of those just to see people beat the hell out of 'em...
