Welcome to the Guardians CCG Page

This is a site dedicated to the Guardians collectible card game released by FPG in the mid '90s. This was a great game featuring beautiful artwork and a complex battle system. The game is now out of print and some cards are extremely difficult to find.

Here you will find alternate rules and game mods (including solo play), homebrew cards, and links to other Guardians sites.

C.J. Burke's .sig card #9: Pet Dragon

Memorial Day bonus: I spent the time to work up 3 different versions of this card because I couldn't determine which artwork fits best. I leave it up to you guys to decide between versions 1, 2, and 3. Kudos to Mr Larry Elmore for painting such fantastic images!

Version 1

C.J. Burke's .sig card #8: Water Elemental

Ok, I added the Seven Seas part. But it makes sense, doesn't it?

C.J. Burke's .sig card #5: Lycanthrope

The text is supposed to indicate that the creature pulled from your discard pile goes back to the bottom of your discard pile, but I simply could not fit all that text on the card without making it so small you couldn't possibly read it...

C.J. Burke's .sig cards #3: Ice Gargoyle

The rest of the cards from this point forward have not been seen by C.J., let's hope he likes them! Here's Ice Gargoyle:

C.J. Burke's .sig cards #2 - Vampire Gargoyle

This is the second card I made for C.J. - Vampire Gargoyle:

C.J. Burke's .sig cards

Ok, so in my last post I said I really missed making cards. A while back I worked up some .sig cards for C.J. - these are cards he would add to his signature when he posted on the usegroup or Yahoo! boards. I decided to start working up some of these cards, to both satisfy my need to create cards and to flush out C.J., who I hadn't heard from in some time.

But that Tanniker Smith has an uncanny knack for appearing in the right place at the right time. He showed up in the comments of the previous post and blew my plan to The Dry Heaps. So I'm going to start posting my vision of his .sig cards, with no need to smoke him out, but still fulfilling my creative outlet. Though we don't have a set name for his cards, I have used the Delta symbol to signify that these are .sig cards. This may change in the future if C.J. decides he wants a different symbol - it's an easy change to make. Some of his .sig cards were made into Seven Seas cards, so those will not be included here. Also, artwork may be very difficult to find for others, but I'll do my best, and use original Guardian artists when possible, though I will continue to use Whelan. In the meantime, here comes the first .sig card I made for C.J. - the Stone Gargoyle:

I'll be posting more cards soon - I've completed 10 already...

Some new cards

I really miss creating cards. I mean, I REALLY miss it. Just for fun, I decided to play with the 3 Goblin cards that Phil posted awhile back on the Yahoo! boards. This is my interpretation of the cards. Note that these don't belong with my Champion's Odyssey set, despite the Pi symbol. Call them promos if you must...

Goblin King:

Goblin Shaman:

Hobgoblin (called Goblin Fire by Phil):

Hope you enjoy these! Start making some Goblin decks!

EDIT: Thanks to Joran for pointing out the flavor of Hobgoblin was a bit too protective. It has now been changed to be more aggressive.

Hiatus - A quick update

Sorry for the lack of posts. Work has really taken off - I have a new person I'm training, and we're thinking about hiring another. I guess those iPads are really helping business, and Toyota issues haven't hurt us as much as I thought they would!

In addition, my grass keeps trying to grow to 4 feet and the lawnmower needs work, and the starter has gone out on my truck. What I'm trying to say is that it'll be a few more days, or possibly a week or two, before I can resume posting. So hang in there, I'll be back soon!
