I picked up an awesome idea from Tall Mike (RIP) one of the hosts of the Imperial Vox Cast. Mike is a reformed Magic player, and he had the ingenuity of making up some Magic cards displaying the Forests, Jungles, and Woods (FJW) random table results. I don’t play Magic, but I do like the idea of quick reference cards that can be placed alongside a terrain piece to mark what it’s random FJW table result is.
To being with I scoured Google images for some pictures to represent the FJW results. Once I had the pictures I needed, I stored on my PC. Next I used my Microsoft Word to make four rectangles on a page. I made the rectangle size 3.62” x 2.62” which is the size of a plastic game card sleeve. Each rectangle is an individual creation. I found copy and pasting changes the rectangles dimensions and blurs the text inside the rectangles. I made sure to align the out board sides of the cards to the margins. In one box I typed up the FJW text. In the opposite rectangle I pasted the picture I wanted to use. I did this twice, and then I printed the sheet. I reloaded the same sheet and reprinted the page. I readjusted the images 1/8” to the right before I reprinted. This helped with the card alignment. This will give you double sided cards. After I printed the cards out I realized they needed some durability, so I took the cards down to my local Staples and had them laminated. Last, I cut the cards to size.
