Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

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...

Yeah, that would great, but to see all that work get banged around would be hard to stomach.

Thinking about making another, I'm leaning toward one like this, but got to find a way to make the kite budget work:
